SquidBase, also known as SquidTown, SquidpoliceTown, or PassieTown, was a 2011 base inhabited by several famous players and a squid statue. It was griefed by luke2thebun in late December of 2011.
There have been two bases named SquidBase, the first one was just a few thousand blocks off of Spawn. Its members were Passie05, policemike55, and Squidgeymon. This is where the "Squid" part of the base name came from. It was griefed in early 2012, possibly by popbob.
The well known Squid Base was founded by passie05 and policemike55 in August 2011. The base went on to boast many castles and the iconic Blooper. The base also had a spot where Facepunch Republic members had meetings. It is unknown when, but popbob went on to join the base and built a large dome, of which she would build several others and later it would become iconic. He joined unwantedly, but popbob used her backdoor abilities to get materials for the base, so the members did not mind.

- During 2011/12, 50k from spawn was considered quite far. There were bases further away though, such as the Lonely Island and 1 Million Base.
- Originally, it was never called PassieTown and just SquidBase, or SquidPolice Town.
- The dome popbob made at the base was built completely by hand, without WorldEdit.
