Info

Info board for Wool Wars

[3]Wool Wars is a competitive arena game where two teams of four battle to take control of the center and kill their enemies. It is based off of or takes inspiration from Battle Box, a minigame from the Minecraft Championships events. The game was released to the Prototype Lobby for public testing on March 15, 2022[1] and received a full release on May 11, 2022.[2]

Gameplay[]

Two teams for four, Red and Blue, are placed in polar opposites of an arena. At the center lies a 3x3 control point consisting of a random arrangement of wool, snow, and quartz blocks. Players cannot respawn until the next round.

Each game has 3 rounds. When a round starts, both teams are released from their starting rooms and begin to attack the opposing team or fill and defend the center. Each team's goal is to fill or have the majority of their team's wool fill the center at the end of the round. A round ends when the center is completely one color or the time runs out. The first team to 3 victories (best out of 5) wins the game.

Classes[]

Before the round, you can choose between 6 different classes. Each class has a unique set of items with different strengths, weaknesses, and playstyles based on the class. Each class also has a unique Keystone Ability that gives them a short buff once per round.

Tank[]

With the highest base defenses and a powerful shield and recovery, this kit can control middle and dominate the enemy!


The Tank is an armored class with slightly high armor and slightly low melee options. Users spawn with a nearly complete Leather Armor set (excluding the helmet) and a wooden sword. The Tank's Keystone Ability is GIGAHEAL, which gives the user Regeneration 4 for two seconds.

Assault[]

With good tools, potions, and a powerful blast of TNT, secure the middle for a few seconds and victory is within grasp!


Assault is an agressive class with a moderate amount of everything. Users spawn with a leather tunic and pants, a wooden sword, a splash potion of instant healing, and a great tool setup consisting of an iron pickaxe, stone shovel, and shears. Assault's Keystone Ability is KNOCKBACK TNT, which places down an exploding TNT that deals no damage but knocks back any opponents.

Archer[]

Low in armor and weak in melee, the archer has to use its superior mobility to kite its marks and its bow to finish the fight!


The Archer is a ranged class with high mobility but low armor and melee options. Users spawn with a bow, six arrows, a wooden axe, and permanent Speed 2, but only have Leather Boots for armor. Upon landing a bowshot, archers will retain the used arrow. The Archer's Keystone Ability is STEP BACK, which launches them backwards on command.

Swordsman[]

Using their powerful sword and swiftness, they can cut through any enemies in his way to achieve victory.


The Swordsman is a balanced melee class with a few combat items and moderate armor. Users spawn with a stone sword and splash potion of instant healing, along with leather pants and boots. The Swordsman's Keystone Ability is SPRINT, which gives them a Speed 2 buff for three seconds.

Golem[]

Powered down, the golem lacks all but a hard hitting offense, but for a few seconds, the golem can become the toughest entity around!


The Golem is a burst class that's mainly vulnerable, but can become highly armored for a short period with its Keystone Ability. Users spawn with a stone sword and golden boots (with Projectile Protection 2), leaving them vulnerable in fights unless they use their Keystone Ability. The Golem's Keystone Ability is GOLDEN SHELL, which gives a nearly full set of Golden Armor with Protection 2 for five seconds.

Engineer[]

A great all purpose class that can lock middle for several seconds to give your team an edge!


The Engineer is an all-around class that takes a balanced ability from each class. The Engineer's Keystone Ability is HACK, which prevents the opponents from placing or breaking any blocks in the center for five seconds.

Tournaments[]

There have been two modern tournaments hosted for Wool Wars.

Wool Wars - First Iteration[]

The first Wool Wars tournament was announced on August 18, 2023 [9] and took place from August 25 to 27, 2023, though was abruptly cancelled just a few hours before the 48 hour mark due to an issue with the matchmaking/queuing system. Hypixel offered participation rewards [10] and decided to re-run the tournament after two weeks.

The following participation rewards were given:

  • Anyone who has played at least 1 game gets 20 tributes, then for every 10 games played they gain another 10 tributes up to a maximum of 100 tributes.
  • Wool Wars Wool:
    • 75+ games played = 100,000
    • 50+ games played = 50,000
    • 25+ games played = 25,000
  • Random crafted mystery box for 75+ games played

Six maps were used for the first iteration of the tournament, these being Patio, Histoire, Plummet, Temple, Sun Shrine and District.

This tournament has a limit of 100 games before blocking tournament progress. Bracket changes are determined by points earned in a round, which are obtained through round wins and game wins.

Wool Wars (2nd Iteration/rerun)[]

The second Wool Wars tournament was announced on September 1, 2023 [11] and took place from September 8 to 10, 2023. It was the seventh mode to have a repeat tournament, but the only one to be rerun due to a cancelled tournament. The only gameplay difference is the reduction of maximum games to 80 (from 100), though changes to matchmaking code (all tournaments will use a single queue) were also completed to help with tournaments going forward. An updated game statistics system was also introduced.

The same six maps were re-used for the second iteration of the tournament, these being Patio, Histoire, Plummet, Temple, Sun Shrine and District.

This tournament had a limit of 80 games before blocking tournament progress. Bracket changes are determined by points earned in a round, which are obtained through round wins and game wins.

There were 8 winners of this tournament, each tying with 3,932 points and 80 wins / 80 games played. These players include ThomasGomagug (Also known as VacuolateBeef24), maniacl, Andrewss, Rastik, carhson, dianlte, Yxelt, and EpicArcher.
