Hausemaster is (was) one of the owners of 2b2t, along with Georgebush420, and owns the entire memory of 2b2t. He has been the owner since the start of the server in 2010 and he is obviously one of the oldest ancientfags ever. Hause does not have to worry too much about the server as a normal server owner, as owning an anarchy server means that he does not have to worry about hiring admins, adding stuff to the server, moderating chat, banning people, or really doing anything except making sure the server remains playable.

In July 2014, a message appeared on the old 2b2t website saying that Hause had left 2b2t forever and was no longer in charge of things, leaving the server to be operated by "an anonymous friend." Almost immediately following this post, the owner's personality changed. Because of this, combined with the person's frequent lack of communication and interaction with the community, it is often believed that someone other than Hausemaster is owner of 2b2t. According to Fit, however, he stated that this was part of the backdoor of The Tyranny and that the message was not real.

History of Server Care

Hausemaster was relatively active on 2b2t throughout its first few years. According to many old players, he would sometimes teleport to random players and occasionally give items. As the years went on, Hause stopped appearing so often and eventually deleted his Minecraft account. He rarely (if ever) appears on the server today.

Hause has done a relatively good job of taking care of the +3500 GB worth of memory server by continuously updating its minecraft version, preventing the deletion of the original map, and paying the monthly $90 for the server's rent in which he pays for with his own money or donations from the community. If Hause fails to pay that $90 at the end of the month, the server actually shuts down forever, causing the end of the 2b2t world (unless he makes a new map). Currently, only 1 player corruption has happened on the server where everyone lost their items, but this was early in the server's history when not many valuable items had been added yet, due to the the fact that Minecraft was still in the Alpha and Beta stages. Hause has also given maintenance to the server several times in order to fix lag or issues with the 7+ year old server, usually causing the server to become unavailable for variable time spans. The most severe time that the server was down was during the Great Server Decay when the server was down for three months. During this time, Hause changed the original IP of the server from 2b2t.net to 2b2t.org which caused several people to believe the server shut down for good.

Temp Maps

Temp maps are temporary maps made by Hause, usually to update and modify the old map. The server has had 4 temp maps so far, the first being at the end of the Great Server Decay in 2013, the second being 3b3t in early 2015, the third being during the early stages of The Rusher War during The Age of Hype in 2016, and the fourth being in the summer of 2017.

The 1st map was made in order for Hause to fix the massive lag on the old map during the Great Server Decay. The 2nd was in order to format the old map to Anvil format when the world height was increased to it's current limit. The 3rd was to add the queue system during the insane flood of new players and fix lag issues. The 4th has been added in order to test new plugins for the server in preparation of 2b2t's update to 1.12.

Patches and Game Breaking Rules

The only "rules" that Hause has added to the server is that it is illegal to use game breaking tools that make the game unfair. He has added plugins to cause people using insane speed hacks and fly hacks to be kicked from the server. He has also patched several Dupe glitches, Backdoors, and other hack based glitches (i.e. Bed TP). Hause has been known to have actually used MC Edit in order to get rid of ridiculous lag machines and illegally placed bedrock, and once removed a giant wall around spawn (which ironically happened not long before rusher joined). Despite all this, he does let players keep duplicated items and usually takes his sweet long time patching things, causing players to be able to squeeze as much as they can out of glitches.

Hause has currently patched only one thing related to Vanilla Minecraft that does not involve hacking or glitches. This patch was for frost walker, an enchantment added in 1.10 Minecraft Update, in which several players used to freeze up entire rivers, builds with water, and even oceans.

Another object that has received plenty of attention is the elytra due to players finding glitches and hacks to cause infinite flight. Eventually, Hausemaster patched the first elytra glitch during the summer of 2016 (when elytras were first added) and the second during the time period of the 5th Incursion. The third glitch, which used an exploit in the options provided in the hacked client known as Aristois, was patched on January 23rd, 2017, by Hausemaster as he now officialy "banned" the elytras usage making it the second vanilla item removed from 2b2t (the other being frostwalker).

He also disabled /kill for a time, to prevent the "apocalypse exploit" from being used (whereby a player would kill themselves while passing into the overworld through a nether portal, causing the game to think the player was both at their spawn point and at the overworld side of the portal, forcing the game to load all the chunks between those two locations), but later re-enabled it after patching the exploit.

Backdoor Management

The server has currently been backdoored 3 times. The first backdoor was caused by Popbob during the early Facepunch time, which allowed his thunderhack, enchanted blocks, and hacked items, the second by iTristan and Pyrobyte to allow for them to reach the world border and create more hacked items, and the third bythe Tyranny, which allowed for insane destruction.

The third backdoor was the most insane and fucked up to this date. The Tyranny managed to hack the account of georgebush420, the first owner of 2b2t. While many believe this to be illegal IRL because it is theft of property and the access of email accounts from Dark Web sites in fucking China, Hause did not press any charges against iTristan and his cronies. The group used the OP account to destroy several large builds and even to forge super weapons with insane enchantments like lvl 32K sharpness swords, knockback swords that could kick a person for flying, and looting swords that could crash the server by making mobs drop thousands of items at once. The group also used the account to create player heads of various players. This was the event that has caused the existence of 32k items to exist on the server all the way up to today, and now they are almost commonplace in the ever-inflating server economy.

Hause stopped Popbob's Thunder Hack by disabling thunder on 2b2t, and regained his alternate account either by deleting it or changing its password/username. The addition of illegal items was almost impossible to fix, considering that many players got their hands on them and began duping them. As more and more players began using these items, Hause attempted to fix the problem by manually deleting various groups of items, and partially succeeded, but not without accidentally deleting Sharpness axes in the process. Furthermore, not all illegals were deleted, which allowed for more duping (of course) and they remain a hallmark of the current 2b2t atmosphere even today.

Original Queue

Queue and Rusher Fiasco

Old Queue from outside

The current Queue system that has been implemented into 2b2t is the revamped queue suggested by Rusher . Hause created the original queue to try to control the flooding from Rusher's video, however, it was not the greatest queue system. This caused a lot of people to be angry (especially oldfags), which Rusher noticed. Rusher suggested to Hause that he could buy the server in order to make it lag free, but Hause thankfully declined the offer because 2b2t would arguably be much worse and wouldn't have it's original 'feels'. Rusher then suggested the current queue, which added the Veteran Queue system and Priority queue. Veteran Queue gave the oldfags who joined before June 1st, 2016 a smaller wait time depending on how long ago they actually joined. The Priority Queue offers a smaller wait time than even the Veteran Queue, which you have to pay $20 monthly in order to have. Hause liked the idea and so allowed Rusher and his crew of faction buddies to add and control the queue, which spawned a little hate. This, however, was able to be abused by Rusher, such as when he removed Torogadude off the veteran queue list for being critical of rusher. Fortunately, Torogadude got his queue priority back (at least until veteran queue was removed for everyone), and no one else had their privileges illegitimately revoked. Hausemaster later made a post about the fiasco, saying that Minecraft is just a block game.

Identity

Hausemaster is from Sweden, like GeorgeBush420, and they know each other in real life, as confirmed in the original 2b2t facepunch thread. It is also widely believed that GeorgeBush420 is simply an alternate account of Hause's.

Interesting note: in 2014, Hause's email headers stopped being written in Swedish, as they had normally been written prior.

Post-War

After the war, Hause would do a few more things such as re-enabling elytras, then disabling them again later, (no) thanks to Fit. He also updated 2b2t to 1.11, which patched the 11/11 dupe. He also patched the Donkey dupe and llama dupe.

Miserable Fail

On April 25th, 2017, Hausemaster attempted to enable the elytra while using AAC as the server's new anticheat. In that day, over 90 people were kicked, even players that weren't using hacked clients. In the same day, over 100 emails were sent to Hausemaster telling him to remove AAC as there were too many false kicks, but none received a response. The change was later reverted.

AAC Re-added

After a short time, Hause re-added AAC in early May with a much better update 3.1.6 which reduced the number of disconnects and issues being reported on the server. While hacked clients are still buggy as hell, the raging has slowed down significantly.

1.12 Improvements to server

Hause and George have currently been working on new plugins to help improve the overall gameplay of 2b2t. Follow the link below to see all changes and improvements to come:

Drama

Hause has been criticized for directly interfering with the 2b2t world using MC Edit by adding / removing things such as massive lag machines. Hause has also been praised / criticized for adding End Portals to the world. The community of 2b2t likes to joke that Hause doesn't do anything with 2b2t unless he is high on cocaine and that he is a massive jew. Hause has also been notorious for not being involved with the server for long periods of time, letting players do what they wanted (which to some oldfags was a good thing) as well as giving Rusher control of the priority queue system. His game breaking rules are criticized due to the fact that the server is an anarchy server where anything should be possible but has received praise as these glitches and hacks would make the server pointless and not very fun.

List of Admins

While it is generally recognized that Hause is the sole admin (at least meant to be) on 2b2t, it has been speculated and theorized that there are/were others. This is a list of all confirmed and possible Administrators of 2b2t.

  • Hausemaster - The original owner. He also ran the official 2b2t website, as well as a Garry's Mod server which was less popular. The website indicates that Hause was growing tired of managing the server in 2013, until eventually he stopped altogether and handed 2b2t off to somebody else.
  • "2builders2tools" / "2b2t" - The most probable current owner of the server, taking the reins from Hausemaster in July 2014. This is based off of a message appearing on the server website in July 2014 stating that Hause had stopped running 2b2t and left the server to "an anonymous friend." The owner's personality changed after this message, and it is a personality still seen today. Hardly anything is known about him.
  • Georgebush420 - Suspected to be an actual person rather than just Hause's alt account (and vice versa).
  • iTristan - Due to suspicions of possible collusion between him and Hause during the 3rd backdoor crisis.
  • Other Tyranny Members - It is also possible that Hause gave admin access to other members of the Tyranny, however very unlikely.
  • Curtis - Rusher's little crony who runs the queue system due to an agreement between Hause and Rusher that the queue would be Archon run during the Rusher War. It is suspected that Curtis possibly has more power than anticipated. These suspicions rise from admin on the subreddit to even as far as in game control.
