All ranks that are and were once available on the server

Ranks are titles that provide players with certain features throughout the Hypixel Network. Some can be acquired either by making a purchase from the Hypixel Store or the In Game Store, or fulfilling certain criteria set by the server. And some have some bit of mystery to them...

Default Rank

All players who join the server for the first time are given this rank. The default rank does not give you any gameplay disadvantages. However, it does restrict certain features, limiting the player's overall experience on the server.

Donator Ranks

Donator Ranks (also referred as Donor Ranks) are paid ranks that can be purchased on the Hypixel Store, using real currency; or the In Game Store, using the server's paid currency, Gold. These ranks offer various cosmetic and convenient features on the server, forums, and Discord server. These do not offer any gameplay advantages towards the player.

High ranks' prices are deducted based on your corresponding rank. So no matter if you upgrade from one rank to another or directly purchase the highest rank. You will pay the same price either way.

PIG ranks

The PIG ranks are a unique set of ranks, given to late YouTube creator and a massive server influence, Technoblade. The rank is named after his avatar, a pig. There are also the only ranks with cyan + plusses on the nameplates.

Initially, the rank started off as a joke between him and the owner, Simon; as he told Techno that he would receive the rank once he reached 10 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. Instead, the rank was given on June 24, 2019, when he won the first Minecraft Monday event.[4] The nameplate would gain an extra cyan + for every Minecraft Monday event he would win. He would win Week 1, Week 2, Week 6, and Week 10; landing him with +++ plusses on his rank. Simon challenged Technoblade to upload a video every week for the entire summer of 2019 to retain the rank, which he did: posting videos on the event and SkyBlock.

With the devastating news of Technoblade's passing due to sarcoma cancer, it has been stated that the rank will be permanently tied to Technoblade's account. Visiting his in-game memorial in the Main Lobby, his username, along with his rank, is displayed under the archway-entrance.

SPECIAL

The SPECIAL rank was given to the player Chaz_ when a moderator told a helper that he was special to him. Chaz would respond with, "I wish I were special to you."

In a couple of days, he would inevitably get approached by a staff member. AgentKid would teleport him to the server's developer world, asking a few questions, such as how he still had the rank after its supposed removal. By then, his rank was finally removed and was replaced with the YOUTUBE rank. As of April 2023, Chaz has the MVP+ rank.

However, due to him being nicked during his possession of the rank, he wasn't able to type anything, and was too late to do so. Some admins have claimed that the rank never existed in the first place. However, the live stream proves otherwise with chat messages of him gaining and losing the rank.
