Avalysium (pronounced /æ.və.ˈli.zi.əm/ or /eɪ.və.ˈli.zi.əm/ as shown by Fit) was a base founded in August 2020 from a merge between the two building groups Avalonia and Elysium. It was griefed on April 16, 2021, by the Backstreet Boys.

History

Foundation

The leaders of both groups, Noah3j and Carlll met when Carlll caught Noah stealing one of the stashes for Elysium 2. Despite the fairly awkward and tense initial interactions, they grew to be friends and Noah became a member of Elysium. Upon seeing Elysium and talking with the members, Noah noted similar ambitions to that of Avalonia. Despite both groups still operating bases, Noah started discussing the possibility of a joint base with Carlll, with the prospect of a later full merger of the two groups. Carlll agreed; unfortunately, Avalonia and Elysium 3 were both griefed shortly after. Although conceived in the midst of a downward spiral of events, it turned out to be the perfect opportunity to carry out the group merger, which led to a project grander than anything either group could dream of: Avalysium.

Starting on August 16, 2020, the Avalysium group was formed out of the majority of the members from Avalonia and Elysium. A voting system similar to Avalonia was established. It was headed up by a co-leadership agreement by Carlll and Noah3j, respectively. The base banner was created as a combination of the designs of the Avalonian and Elysium banners, with the base colors being white and pink. The merger had problems, initially. Two members, DrBeardStash and Ionar, secretly disliked Elysium but hid their feelings from the rest of the group in hopes of gaining a dupe that Redstoner had. Ionar later reverse-engineered the dupe, with the intent to put it into his hacked client, Pyro Client. After Ionar and DrBeardStash found the dupe, they left the group. It was later discovered that they planned on griefing Avalysium regardless of finding the dupe. These plans were discovered without their knowledge. The base and all supplies were relocated before Ionar or DrBeardStash could act. With the supplies and new location, building started on 10/22/20 as Marcus4761 (the founder of the Monastery), was the first to reach the new location which was a massive jungle. The first project at the new location was a large-scale terraforming operation. Marcus, Blocker, and CirocDrip were tasked with flattening a large portion of the central island and turning huge jungle mountains into a blank canvas where the Avalysians had planned to put a city. The new Avalysian hall came with many complex Redstone additions that made it one of the most efficient and largest item sorter/stash ever built on 2b2t, holding approximately 2,400 double chests of items. Having a (now patched) private dupe made every item in the game available and well-stocked in the storage hall. The hall included many Redstone mechanisms to make life easier for its users, including automatic anvil replacers, exp dispensers, and many more useful mechanisms. The hall was to be surrounded by circular roads lined with custom foliage designed by Xapamaa. A district on the southwest side of the central island was started to the theme of 'Amsterdam', the south side had a grand central train station, the east was to have a road of shops and end with docks and a harbor.

Building

As the weeks went by, the number of accounts arriving at the base grew seemingly exponentially. Shared base accounts were set up so users could play at the base without having to buy priority queue. Between the seemingly infinite materials, and the large amount of members, the construction of Avalysium was happening fast. All 8 cardinal and diagonal roads were expanded to the ends of the central islands. A boardwalk and ocean wall for the upcoming station was built by Noah3j. Everything was going smoothly, until the base had a surprise visitor, Univercius. He had triangulated the coordinates after seeing a stream Carlll did that revealed distant waypoints and yaw measurements, allowing Avalysium's location to be determined through trigonometry. Ironically, it was Carlll that taught him how to do the math to triangulate coordinates in the first place. To the relief of everyone involved, Univercius chose to stay and not leak the base, thus becoming a base member. Also, IronException joined the group at this time. Expanding the base's Nether section was determined to be the next goal. One night, while most accounts were at the dupe stash, Hausemaster removed priority queue from every single account online at the base. After inspecting the area where all the priority queue removals happened and attempting to communicate with Hausemaster, Blocker's priority queue was also removed. Members concluded that the items moving throughout the storage system sorter was the cause of the lag, prompting him to pay the base a "visit". The base accounts got priority back (despite the heavy price tag). Nexo was tasked with designing a Nether hub castle while Noah cleared a large area in the Nether. IronException created a mod that auto cleared lava source blocks to assist in this. Building the castle largely by himself, Noah was about to take a break from the project until Connor came. Being recently invited, the two were able to grind and finish in less than 48 hours with some help from Ciroc. The infrastructure then started underneath the castle to include a Nether road system. Tunnels designed by Noah, Iron, and Sky4 were created that extended 1k blocks in each cardinal direction. With the main focus shifting back to the overworld, Marcus and Connor built a town south of the pyramid with a plaza, obelisks, and a large Greek temple. As was tradition, Marcus made the same iron pyramid that can also be found at Avalonia or the Monastery. Carlll began a huge project of a volcano on an island southwest of the base . Another unfinished build was the Grand Central Station, which after a huge amount of terraforming by Noah3j could begin construction. With major help from Connor, Xapamaa, Ciroc, and Blocker, the station was nearly complete before the base was griefed. Had the base lasted another month, it's likely the volcano and central station would have been completed.

Grief

On April 16, 2021 Avalysium was griefed by the Backstreet Boys. Bard, a base member, had an IRL friend who was an avid 2b2t player after being introduced to the server by him. Bard would regularly discuss the server and the Avalysium base with him, describing the grandiosity of the base. Bard’s friend, intrigued, saw an opportunity for attention and infamy. During a visit to Bard’s house, he secretly ratted his computer by plugging a USB stick into his PC to obtain all of Bard’s information: His discord tokens, his Minecraft account information, etc. He even used Bard’s account to spend money on discord. Having sold out his real-life friend for block game clout, he was promptly kicked from BSB, seen as a backstabbing friend. The community saw him as going too far beyond the limits of decency, even for a 2b2t player. With that, the base got griefed.

Etymology

The name "Avalysium" originated with the merging of the names Avalonia and Elysium:

  • Avalonia, being a builder group, with their large principle base, "Avalonia."
  • Elysium, also a builder group, with several bases known as "Elysium."
