An end portal in Minecraft is a naturally generated structure that is used as the only gateway into the End Dimension. On 2b2t, however, end portals are not naturally generated, as all the supposed locations of strongholds (which host end portals) were already generated before these structures were added to the game. This fact required admin interference, in order to allow the community access to The End.

History

In the early days, Hausemaster was less interested in building end portals, and because of that, the community couldn't access the End for quite some time, until backdoored end portal frames were used to build the first end portal functioning at NFE in 2012 (an attempt to construct an end portal in 2011 had failed).

When Hausemaster found out about the existence of this end portal, and other portals which were later built around the server, he took action by deleting the End Dimension and removing the portals.

Eventually, the admin decided to add end portals back to 2b2t by regenerating chunks in the locations where strongholds were supposed to be generated. These end portals renewed access to the End, however, they were also the target of griefers. Due to the griefing of public end portals, many players relied on access to private ones which were built using backdoored items, in hidden locations.

In 2017, end portals were brought back to 2b2t in their proper locations, this time, the admin built them manually near the bedrock surface. Since then, griefers would occasionally grief all End Portals and disable access to the End for a few weeks or months until they would get rebuilt again by the admin.

Private end portals

Private end portals were built throughout the years by players who had access to backdoored end portal frames. These end portals were useful when access to The End was limited to the community, if the public portals are griefed. These portals are kept secret for long periods of time, allowing them to survive for many years. Having access to a private end portal is considered to be a highly valuable thing on the server. Some famous private end portals include popbob's end portals, the end portal at Kaamtown, the end portal at NFE, and many other portals which were built at different bases.

Coordinates

Please note that all End Portals are located close to the bedrock level.

Keep in mind that some of the End Portals mentioned here can be griefed at the time of you reading this and the question of when it will be repaired depends on the admin.
