We recommend you join in advance of the start, and stick around in the hub. Doors will CLOSE at event start; you won't be able to (re)join until the event has ended.

Hope to see you there!

Get your free Sonic the Hedgehog skin pack!

Available now on The Hive server, claim your free Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary Skin Pack! This pack comes with two free skins, usable anywhere within Minecraft.

Sonic Event Delay

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties we've had to make the difficult decision to delay the Sonic Live Event until Saturday, July 24th.

We hope you can join us on the new event date!

Sonic Hub Update: More Rings!

Need some more rings to get those fancy Ring Shop unlocks? We've got good news for you!

  • Added Ring Trees (3D) that give rings when punched
  • Added (hidden) Ring Boxes that grant 25 rings when interacted with
  • Added Motobugs and Buzz Bombers to certain courses

Happy hunting! Maybe look behind that waterfall...

Infinite server loading bug: workaround

Recently, players outside of the United States (or those with a custom language set) have been experiencing intermittent issues with the Featured Server list not loading.

To work around this issue, switch your client language to English - US. You will need to restart your client, and in extreme cases reinstall the game, to clear your cache.

Minecraft is aware of this issue and working on a solution.

Version Support Update

Minecraft 1.17 (Caves and Cliffs: Part 1) releases June 8th. You'll be able to play The Hive on 1.17 on release day.

We are NOT removing support for any 1.16 version at this time. Upcoming minigames will require more recent versions of Minecraft; however, we will not require this for existing games.

Recent Replays Command

This update is freshly rolling out, not all IDs may appear just yet.

Using Replay IDs to report players helps our moderation team to ban more cheaters, quicker. Today we're making it easier for you to obtain your replay IDs.

Recent Replays Command

The /recentreplays command shows you up to 10 recent replay IDs, including the game, map and relative time of the match. Forgot to grab last games ID? No worries, find it in the Recent Replays modal.

Replay ID In End-Game

The /replay command now also works in end-game (podium phase).


Thanks for reporting!
