EtikaWNetwork, better known by his nickname 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 arrested during a Instagram live, on May 25th, 2019 Etika unexpectedly decided to pick up Minecraft after last playing it in 2013. Due to the massive amount of messages in his stream mentioning 2b2t, and Fit himself commenting on it, he decided to check out Fit's YouTube channel and learn about 2b2t.

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 times (the highest in months) due to his popularity, and many of his followers began to spam 9 in chat. The movement went to a complete halt following Etika's death 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.
On December 17th, 2019, a submission was made to r/EtikaRedditNetwork saying that Etika's account was hacked. His Minecraft account is still active on 2b2t and has been spotted several times at spawn.
His account is now owned by Vortex Coalition affiliated user named Flint.
