The Kinorana Map Crisis was a week-long crisis in 2b2t when Kinorana, a trader in 2b2t, changed all the maps in 2b2t thanks to mass creating all ~64k maps, overwriting existing map IDs with his own.

Background

On February 25th, 2017, all maps were changed by Kinorana. This caused madness across the server and the players. People bashed on kino in the subreddit.

However, prior to the prank, he contacted Hausemaster to warn him and save all map files so he can restore the maps if he wanted to.

Drama

On February 28th, 2017, total havoc was released upon chat in the form of protests and riots against Kinorana's crisis. Deathspammers began to insue insults and flooded the chat with articles such as "send KINO to ISIS." The subreddit followed suit, and even family-friendly BibleB0t joined in the protest.

Aftermath

The drama ended on March 3rd. However, Kinorana's map still remains as a ghost map. The maps can still be restored if the original map art build has been visited. This also leaves new map art to be created.
