SkyBlock was a popular Minecraft map created in 2011. You spawn on a floating island and survive until you inevitably get bored and quit. You start off with a tree and a chest containing a block of ice and a bucket of lava. You needed to make a cobblestone generator, expand your island, and do whatever the hell you wanted. In July of 2019, PewDiePie and CinnamonToastKen used their big brains to make a cobblestone generator in their SkyBlock series.

In June of 2019, a prototype game called 'Hypixel SkyBlock' was released on the Hypixel server and it gained immense popularity. The game is a new take on the original SkyBlock, but it requires a lot more grinding and has a dedicated gambling feature. Did I mention it'll waste hours of your life? The game was released during Minecraft's resurgence, so that helped with it's popularity and vice versa.
"I think SkyBlock at its core is the ultimate challenge in resource management. You spawn on a tiny island in an empty universe; all you have is a tree, some supplies, and some dirt to stand on. You have to treasure EVERY dirt block because if one falls into the void, there's no way to replace it. And as you carefully navigate your absurd circumstance, you gain a new appreciation for the few things you have as you meticulously use them to their fullest effect. With nothing but some ice, lava, and saplings, you slowly transform this empty expanse into a world of your very own. SkyBlock teaches us that no matter how ridiculous the odds may seem, within us resides the power to overcome these challenges and acheive something beautiful. And one day, we'll look back at where we started and be amazed by how far we've come."

A hypixel gamemode that curses you to play forever and waste your time. A prison gamemode in a way.

Person 2: So you like prison servers?

A spinoff of the original skyblock, where instead of spending all your time on your island (building and expanding it) you spend 90% of your time in the Skyblock hub with so many things to grind so you can be a better player overall. The goal for most Hypixel skyblock players is the stop playing hypixel skyblock.

A game you will spend so much time on you will wish you never started. once you start having 200+ hours in-game, you will start to hallucinate and see sign of this game everywhere. you will either burn out or die trying to stop. we also have an active community which consist of controversial people, idiot thinking their smarter than anyone else, Thirtyvirus, the symbol of controversy because of all those "balancing idea" where he just try to cheese the game and nsfw artist very popular among the community.
