EtikaWNetwork (Etika) was a YouTuber who joined and streamed 2b2t after learning about it on his YouTube-stream, attracting an influx of players, in which the queue was above the one thousands. He was the founder of 9 Gang.
He started the Etika Invasion, a series of events that erupted due to him joining.
After stirring up controversy by getting banned on Twitch and getting arrested on Instagram live, on May 25th Etika unexpectedly decided to pick up Minecraft after last playing it in 2013. Due to a massive amount of chat in his stream mentioning 2b2t, and Fit himself commenting on it, he decided to check Fit's youtube channel and learn about 2b2t. Although he didn't play it that night, instead trying to pick up the game in singleplayer, he planned on the next.

Following Etika joining in late May 2019, the 9 Gang soon cultivated. Although it was a weak movement, Etika's large following led to extremely high queue levels (the highest in months) due to his popularity. Many of his members began to spam 9 in chat and died to more experienced players. The movement went to a complete halt following Etika's death on June 22nd/25th and consequently, hundreds of shrines popped up in a "memorial" for the lost YouTuber.
On June 19th, 2019, Etika went missing after posting a video in the form of a suicide letter. He was later found dead on June 22nd in the East River, New York, after jumping off the Manhattan Bridge, and later identified on June 25th. Multiple memorials and map arts have been built across the map, continuously coming and going. Some blame has been put on 2b2t for his death but it will likely be forever unknown if it was 2b2t's fault for his suicide or if it was outside circumstances.
On December 17, 2019, a submission was made to r/EtikaRedditNetwork saying that Etika's account was hacked. His minecraft account is still active on 2b2t today and has been seen on multiple accounts at spawn.Vortex Coalition affiliated discord user named Flint. (He also owns the Accounts Earth, Moon, Flints on top of Etika's old account.)
