Minecraft is undoubtedly one of the best games ever to be released, there is something for every type of player in there. No matter what the player likes, Minecraft has it sorted, from PvP to mysterious caves and dimensions, Minecraft is one of the most versatile games out there. Du to this versatility the game has managed to stay on top for more than a decade now and it shows no sign of stopping, newer updates keep on coming and more and more players keep joining the game!
This versatility was soon capitalized on by many smart Minecraft players. Many players were losing their interest in the base survival game, so many started their mini maps and custom story mode servers. Servers became the most popular mode to play Minecraft and to this day millions of players across the globe play on various different Minecraft servers.
What is Bedwars?
Just like any other mini-map or custom server, Bedwars is a custom mini-game in Minecraft. The goal of the game is very simple, destroy others’ beds whilst defending yours. The concept may seem pretty generic vague at first, but once you start playing it you’d realize how hard it actually is to win. There are so many different strategies that you can use to gain the upper hand in a fight.
And this mini-game became popular real fast, infact it is one of the most played mini-game. There are different versions of the Bedwars game available, but the core concept always remains the same, get some items kill other players get some more gear destroy their bed, and repeat this until your adversaries are dead!
The Bedwars mini-game has seen many versions dating back to early 2012 when Minecraft was still in its infancy. A player who goes by the name of Xisumavoid who is a really popular Minecraft YouTuber now made a custom mini-map called rush!
This map was not that complex, it didn’t make use of any commands and everything was done by simple yet efficient Redstone. Xisumavoid’s version of this min-game was really simple. There were two teams involved in a match and you can do trading with normal villagers. Nothing to fancy and the server was only used locally so not many were able to enjoy this fascinating new mini-game.
This mini-game soon had many eyes on it and it didn’t take a long time for the first Bedwars server to start running. Xisumavoid’s Rush was a great game, but many players wanted to enjoy it for themselves and hence many servers started popping up in this space to make the most out of the player’s hunger for Bedwars action.
This genre absolutely blew up when Hypixel started its own version of it. For those who don’t know, Hypixel is by far the biggest name in the Minecraft server space, they have a ton of great mini-games which run as smooth as a knife through butter.
Hypixel started this mini-game genre but with its own style. Hypixel is known for its great quality maps which they use on their server. The Bedwars map was unique for Hypixel, they added various islands and the game now had become a PvP rather than a team vs team system.
This new style was loved by players across the server. Hypixel then started adding various plugins which made the game even more smoother and fun to play. The hassle of trading vanished when they added better trading mechanics. Al in all the Hypixel server is the quintessential Minecraft Bedwars experience.
When people think about Bedwars they think about Hypixel that’s just how great they made the game.
