Someone took their sweet time to save it for posterity.

Imperator's Base, commonly called Imp's Base or simply Imp's, also known as the The Ungriefable Base, and formerly Viking Base, was one of the largest bases in 2b2t, built by Imperator's Group in 2012. It was the site of the prominent and well-known Jesus statue, and was griefed by jared2013 in 2015. The Jesus statue at the base was the background Hausemaster used for the server's official website.

History

Construction of the base began on April 21, 2012. The base was named after ImperatorTerrae. The group named themselves Vikings since most of them were from northern Europe and originally named the place "Viking Base". Several well-known players such as Offtopia, omaliymix, THEJudgeHolden, CytotoxicTcell, xcc2, and LegitLobster were invited. Imperator's Base was at its height in power around 2013 when it was discovered by the griefer popbob. Imperator reasoned with popbob, providing him with an invitation to the base, which popbob accepted. Because of this, Imperator's Base was dubbed, "The Ungriefable Base". The base was also known to have had an End portal, which Hausemaster later removed.

By 2014, many of the inhabitants of Imp's had quit. The base's isolation made it difficult to recruit new players like iTristan and Branillon, who received invitations and had to use accounts already at Imperator's base.

Grief

In early 2015, whilst sharing images with other members of a Skype chat, iTristan accidentally posted an image with coordinates of a small building on the outside of Imperator's Base, but quickly took it down. A friend of iTristan named jared2013 saved the image to his computer before iTristan took it down, but forgot about it for nearly a year. jared2013 and iTristan had a falling out, which led jared2013 to rediscover the screenshot and the coordinates of Imperator's Base.

After some difficulty finding the base's Nether coordinates, he found the iron towers marking the base's nether portal. CainesLaw discovered jared and messaged him a hello before contacting Imperator's friends, who encouraged jared not to blow up the base. The first block of TNT was laid at the foot of the Jesus statue around 9:00 PM EST, on December 24, 2015. He renamed his account, mailyou, to HiveTyrantRaphi, to mock one of the past players that based at Imp's. He invited several people to help him grief the base, although only one ended up helping. jared2013 and VlI would grief the base for nearly 48 hours before they ran out of TNT, using over a combined 100,000 TNT blocks in the process. During the entire grief, only one fight ever occurred, between jared2013 and CainesLaw. Jared2013 won by using TNT on a staircase, preventing CainesLaw from reaching him. They concluded the grief by blowing off the head of the Jesus Statue. Imperator's base was destroyed by Christmas Day of 2015.

Jared said a few times after the grief that he regretted griefing the base, however this was just a diversion so that no one would see Jared's plans for Imperator's Base 2.

Imperator's Base 2

In 2015, prior to jared2013's grief, iTristan used his root access to the server to copy and paste the region files of the base to another part of the map, at X:3,237,684 Z:-1,788,243. He added a 1184×1184 block (74×74 chunk) void hole as well, which is currently a flat bedrock floor due to a plugin preventing void holes. The rebuild was discovered in May 2021 and griefed once again by jared2013 on May 29, 2021, alongside HermeticLock and Orsond. The grief lasted 12 hours and even then was largely underdone.
