Pre-Minecraft server

See also: Hausemaster § Early history, 2b2t § Origin, 2fort2furious, and 2b2t (Garry's Mod server)

This time concerns all relevant events that lead up to 2b2t's creation as a Minecraft server.

  • November 7, 2005 — Hausemaster creates his Steam account.[1]
  • February 2008–2009 — Hausemaster is active on the Team Fortress 2 server 2fort2furious (2f2f). He also creates an account on the 2f2f forum on February 20, 2008.[2]
  • Hause meets Kalash (Reima) on 2f2f, who invites him to a Team Fortress 2 group called the "Axeassins".
  • August 29, 2008 — Hausemaster starts the 2b2t Steam group with the aim to host game servers, titled "2builders2tools (2b2t)", a parody of 2f2f.[3]
  • August 2008 – between April 2009 and December 2010 — 2b2t's Garry's Mod server begins after Kalash is banned from 2f2f for exploits. After creating the Minecraft server, the group is still active and continues hosting servers, although none are as significant as the Garry's Mod and Minecraft servers.[4] The group was deleted by Hause in 2019 or 2020.
  • August 3, 2010 — Minecraft survival multiplayer is released.

2010

Player Count: 50–70 (Accounts vary)

Nothing much is known about the early days of 2b2t, except that the server began in December this year. According to pYr01v1aniac, the server was on update Alpha 1.7.[5] There are rumors that the server began months earlier than this (due to Hausemaster's wording in a Facepunch thread) but they are little more than rumors.

  • December 17/20 — Hausemaster and/or georgebush420, the two server operators, start up 2b2t. 2b2t is populated by people in the already existing 2b2t Garry's Mod community (Such as Rage639 and BennyGun) and advertised on 4chan and SomethingAwful.
  • late December — Spawn is griefed, according to accounts. pYr01v1aniac claims that most of the damage at Spawn was caused by creeper explosions in "the first couple of days",[6] as well as lavacasts.[7]

2011

Player Count: 50–80

During 2011, several events occurred, the most significant being the formation and rise of the Facepunch Republic. This year was one of the most active in the server's history prior to 2016.

  • early 2011 — Hausemaster teleports to random players to check the progress of his server. He would sometimes give players random items.
  • early 2011 (possibly December 2010) — Swastika Base is created by members of the /v/idya; it is griefed by April 2011
  • April 2011 — The Facepunch Republic begins; 4channers, who are the majority and on 2b2t previously to Facepunchers, take notice of this and try to stop them.
    • April 26 — Chezhead joins 2b2t and discovers the ruins of a griefed castle. He creates a small base with Mattyyy and Coolity.
    • April 27 — At 4:57 pm UTC, Chezhead advertises 2b2t on Facepunch's forums, and he becomes the leader of the brand new Facepunch Republic. Facepunchers apply for membership in this thread, including one user known as Luke2thebun. Chezhead moves out of his first base, citing proximity to spawn, and establishes Camp Facepunch, probably on the same castle ruins he had discovered.
    • April 28 — At 12:45 am UTC (approx.), a user known as mweorz (the alt of 4channer Luke2thebun, which inside the Republic) attacks Camp Facepunch with the help of his hacked client. Half of the Republic (approximately ten people) are killed, as well as Chezhead's dog. The event becomes known as Greyskull's Last Stand and marks the beginning of the Facepunch War. It is later discovered that mweorz is the alt account of 4channer Luke2thebun. Facepunchers evacuate the castle and rebuild elsewhere. Hausemaster posts the first known server stats at 6:56 am UTC. There have been 8164 unique players, the map size is 9.3GB, and approximately 295 ruins have been found within thirty thousand blocks of spawn. One player has reportedly walked 150000 blocks out. Speedhackers are creating so many new chunks that the 40GB SSD that houses the server is maxing out quickly. To pay for server costs and upgrades, Facepunchers pledge to donate to Hausemaster. The new Facepunch castle is griefed at approximately 7:45 am UTC.
    • April 29 — Chezhead leaves a memorial at the remains of Camp Facepunch: "Here lies the ruins of a proud nation, made by blood, sweat, and tears. R.I.P. Camp Facepunch. Love, Chezhead."
  • May 2011 — Player data corruption and change of world generation cause spawn to look strange.
  • July 2011 — First post of the 2b2t Comic by THEJudgeHolden. The base known as Zion is also built.
    • July 7 — Within creates the second Facepunch 2b2t thread, titled "2b2t V2: there is no FP republic". The Facepunch Republic begins to decline. By now, 37856 players have joined and the map size is 29.7GB.
    • July 29 — THEJudgeHolden uploads the first two chapters of his 2b2t comic series.

    • October 9 — THEJudgeHolden uploads the fifth chapter of his 2b2t comic series.
  • November 2011
  • December 2011 — The First Backdoor of 2b2t occurs. popbob created a plugin for Hausemaster, and using this backdoor, gave himself permission to use the TooManyItems mod. He also gives a number of Facepunchers permissions too, including xcc2 and policemike55, meaning that they were virtually working in Creative Mode with an endless supply of blocks.
    • December 16 — THEJudgeHolden uploads the sixth chapter of his 2b2t comic series.
    • December 25 — THEJudgeHolden uploads the seventh chapter of his 2b2t comic series.
    • December 29 — THEJudgeHolden uploads the eighth chapter of his 2b2t comic series.
    • Late December — Plugin Town is constructed in the wake of the destruction of Passietown. The town is built using backdoor access.
  • 2011 — The first dupe on 2b2t, the Piston Dupe, was discovered by a member of Facepunch. This involved pushing the piston real fast to duplicate items.

2012

Player Count: 20–50

This year marked one of the most barren times on the server. The server faced drastic player loss during this time due to several Facepunchers leaving, the IP changing, and the server being down for three months which caused many players to believe that the server shut down for good.

  • January 2012
    • ZiggyBase is constructed. popbob's backdoor allows builders to construct bedrock structures, such as the Bedrock Dam and the Bedrock Comet. popbob then uses the backdoor to teleport to many bases and grief them, as well as creating hacked items. Hausemaster disables/patches the plugin, ending the First Backdoor.
    • January 3 - THEJudgeHolden uploads the ninth chapter of his 2b2t comic series.
    • January 13 - THEJudgeHolden uploads the tenth chapter of his 2b2t comic series.

    • April 1 - The first April Fools Map is released. Every ten minutes, Hausemaster changes the map. He also spawns shitloads of mobs.
    • April 4 - Zion is raided and destroyed. It turns out that Phagocytic had given the coordinates to Zion to xarviar. Initially unaware that Phagocytic was now the leader of the Facepunch Republic and was promoting 2b2t on Facepunch, the discovery of the fact convinces him to leak the coordinates. He ends up on Phagocytic's exclusive "TOTAL FUCKING FAGGOT LIST". Phagocytic moves the Facepunchers to 2k2k, which is later renamed Zion (though many still call it 2k2k).
  • May 2012
    • May 23 — 2b2t.net website is set up and Hausemaster demands donations to keep the server up.[8]
  • June 2012
    • Around the middle of the year, Chrisleighton, the self-proclaimed "king" of 2b2t, is doxxed by x0XP. It turns out that using your real name as your username and pissing off 2b2t is not the wisest idea. Chris leaves with his tail between his legs.
    • 2k2k is founded.
    • The Facepunch Republic fully collapses.
  • July 2012
    • 2k2k is obliterated and lavacasted.
    • July 20th - Hausemaster creates the second known spawn lightning storm. The strikes are no longer focused precisely on 0,0 but strike all around the immediate surroundings. ComputerTechie captures footage of this storm. It is unknown if Hausemaster ever tested other lightning storms.
  • October 2012
  • Late 2012 - The first wither is spawned in by Rickenman, and then the second is spawned in by Shougun
  • 2b2t is shut down for three months and changes the IP address from 2b2t.net to 2b2t.org.

    • June 20th - The 1st Incursion takes place. hinderjd, one of Valkyria’s founders, suggests invading spawn, which Valkyria agrees to due to the fact that they are on version 1.4.7 and that everybody is equipped with duped armor, tools and weapons. The Valkyrians trek to spawn and kill all the Withers, then make their way to 2k2k and settle. However, after just a few days, the Valkyrians begin to separate and some pursue their own goals at the spawn. Griefers eventually locate 2k2k and a mass fight breaks out. Some Valkyrians die due to a lack of PVP experience. After one week, the Incursion ends.
    • June 20th - IGN video (does not generate hype).
  • August 2013
    • The 2nd Incursion begins. Valkyrians pick themselves up from the fail of the 1st Incursion and organize. Fubster builds a dirt hut that turns into a huge base.

The original identity of the griefer remains unknown.

Mass-duping takes place across the server.
    • November 19th - Kinorana develops a client that simplified the 11/11 Dupe, allowing players to dupe their entire inventory.

It is named the largest community project ever completed in server history. To get the obsidian necessary, "gulag" slave camps were set up around spawn and new players were captured and forced to mine ender chests to obtain obsidian. This is the first confirmed time slave labor is used in the server's history.

Dozens of players are chunk-banned due to the exploit.
  • March 2019
    • March - YouTube algorithm promotes Minecraft videos due to "nostalgia craze" and as a byproduct, promotes 2b2t videos, flooding the server with new players and extending queue to wait times last seen during the post-Rusher era. Queue issues persist. Potential incursion discussion begins to arise throughout the community.
    • Early March - Chunk ban patched. New roof travel exploit is found by using pigs.
    • March 7th - In response to the queue overload of the algorithm, Gambino begins an "8th Incursion".

The exploit was patched mid-April.

After a random disconnect, his location is identified by members of Emperium and Point Zenith, but once he logged back in, he killed himself to prevent sniping. Members of The Backstreet Boys snowball-kicked him, and eventually, Etika ends the stream after being disconnected by the anti-AFK plugin.
    • May 26th - Etika streams 2b2t and had a consistent 9,000+ viewers which may make the queue much longer. Godmode is unpatched and book ban is patched. Eta members attempt to bed trap Etika, but are thwarted by The Backstreet Boys who lag-kick them.

    • May 27th - Etika formally declares war on 2b2t on stream after being killed by players using invisibility exploit. Etika builds the number 9, signifying the foundation of the 9 Gang. iTristan turns invisible and kills Etika after he escaped from Spawn, once again ending his stream. He later joins for another half hour off-camera, posting in chat for the first time, but the reason is largely unknown. The Purge also begins on this day (Sato86 had killed off the term "incursion") with the opening of a Discord, aiming to exterminate Etika's fans at Spawn and reduce the queue. This purge is led by policemike55, ufocrossing, HermeticLock, and TheDark_Emperor.

The Second Anti-Incursion officially begins as Killet leads members to help Etika and the 9 Gang escape Spawn.
    • May 31st - The lag machines created on the server slow it down to 4.9 TPS, crashing it repeatedly.
