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 2011, possibly by popbob.
The well known Squid Base was founded by passie05 and policemike55 during August of 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, in which he would build several others and would later become iconic. He joined unwantedly, but popbob used his backdoor abilities to get materials for the base, so the members did not mind.
5 years later the base was later leaked to the public by PandaSauceYT during the events of the Rusher War. The base has seen more destruction, and in 2017 - the original popbob's dome was finally griefed by Armorsmith and uglykids, and the base was lava casted.

- 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.
