Pre–Minecraft 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]
  • Hausemaster 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 – Hausemaster and/or georgebush420, the two server operators, begin 2b2t's current map. 2b2t is populated by people in the already existing 2b2t Garry's Mod community (such as Rage639 and BennyGun)
  • 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 – the owners advertise 2b2t on 4chan and SomethingAwful
  • Early 2011 – Hausemaster teleports to random players to check the progress of his server. He would sometimes give players random items.

    • 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 a player named Luke2thebun on his alt mweorz attacks Camp Facepunch. Starting the Facepunch War. Later that day a temporary castle built by the Facepunchers is also attacked and destroyed.

    • 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.

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 Second Backdoor.

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]

    • 2k2k is founded.
    • The Facepunch Republic fully collapses.
  • Mid 2012 – x0XP and popbob attempt to backdoor 2b2t again, but they failed when Benjojo (one of the moderators) caught them.
  • July 2012
    • 2k2k is obliterated and lavacasted.
    • July 20 – 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.

2016

Player Count (pre–June): 1–10

Player Count (post–June): up to 2500 or more

The birth of modern 2b2t, this was caused when TheCampingRusher made a video series and posted it onto Youtube.

  • November 2016
    • November 11 – The 11/11 Dupe, otherwise known as the Drop Dupe, is discovered and leaked by RusherIsAutistic (xxq). The dupe worked by simply throwing the chosen item out of your inventory, immediately disconnecting, and then reconnecting, which would leave the item in your inventory and create a thrown dupe on the ground. Mass–duping takes place across the server.
    • November 19 – Kinorana develops a client that simplified the 11/11 Dupe, allowing players to dupe their entire inventory. Later, it was found out that the client was backdoored, leading to many leaked stashes being raided. Other clients, such as Impact and Wurst, still enable duplication without backdooring.
    • November 25 – AgentGB makes a video on 2b2t. He later states that is will not be a series.
    • November 28 – The Fifth Incursion is organized by jared2013, however, this fails, and now widely recognized to have been a meme. 2b2t is updated to version 1.11, killing the 11/11 Dupe.
