The 4th Reich
The Fourth Reich was a group founded by Tim_McNukepants in June 2016 amid the Rusher War. They began as a couple of 2b2t Discord users who came together, seemingly on the basis that a large scale conflict on 2b2t could not be complete without a team of nazi wannabes as the cherry on top. Although other groups surpassed them in manpower and infrastructure during their lifetime, they still gained notoriety due to them functioning more as a separate entity than as an extension of either warring side, using player kills and griefs as advertisements for themselves only. Their focus was to become as powerful and recognized as they possibly could, by using whatever means available. They are known for having helped popularize end crystal PvP, and for griefing bases indiscriminately such as the Peacekeepers' HQ, Wrath Outpost, The Drain, DonFuer 10, and many others.
The 4th Reich was founded in June 2016 by Tim_McNukepants, P529, and Anar_NL. After false rumors that the main 2b2t Discord was for oldfags only, the 3 felt excluded and decided to make their own Discord and group called The Fourth Reich, shortly after they met up to make the 4th Reich Founding Base. From the beginning, the 4th Reich were the self-proclaimed sworn enemies of The Vortex Coalition and engaged in a war with them by apparently destroying their headquarters. This war was later found out to be entirely fake. After the VoCo Vs. 4th Reich War meme died down, the group moved closer to spawn and became somewhat of a subgroup of Team Veteran. They then started accepting new members into the group since the Fourth Incursion was about to begin. After a few weeks, the 4th Reich grew into a group of both old and new players. After several conflicts with insiders from other groups that leaked the base coordinates, all the members became temporary nomads scourging spawn and its surroundings. At some point, likely during or shortly after the war, most of the following 4th Reich bases were founded: MyrddinEmrys' Castle, Jewtopia, 4th Reich Forward Operation Base, and other minor storage stashes / outposts / lag machines.
After the Rusher War, the 4th Reich continued to obliterate monuments such as Helios, Wrath Outpost, Gecko501's Tower, and The Drain. When Fit declared that Team Veteran has become a dormant group, waiting for the next YouTuber surge, the 4th Reich increased its rivalry with Team Aurora, and the two groups began to skirmish with each other. The two eventually dragged the Peacekeepers into the conflict and the Three Way Conflict began. This conflict continued until the end of the 5th Incursion.
On December 25, 2016, 0xymoron traveled to Jewtopia and griefed it, all while streaming it live on YouTube. As the stream progressed, more players wanted to help grief. 3 hours after the livestream began, the base was destroyed. The map art built there was griefed, as well as the lag machine and many other contraptions.
0xymoron stated that the reason for this grief was because Tim_McNukepants disabled maps, and was griefing. 0xymoron also said that before the coordinates were sold by Tumorous, he found the base and decided to grief it.
Afterward, Tim_McNukepants griefed 0xymoron's group base, museum and dupe stash in retaliation. This grief was also streamed live on YouTube, just to add insult to injury. This caused 0xymoron to rage and make multiple reddit posts claiming that clients were backdoored, Tim_McNukepants bought the coords, and that Fake Knight_Vista had everyone's coordinates.
The 4th Reich was a key player in the 5th Incursion as they attempted to construct an obsidian wall and their own FOB. However, the 5th Incursion was a disaster and none of this succeeded. After the incursion, the group continued griefing other bases like LordPastaYT's base, BarrenDome's obsidian pyramid, Jerico City, map art bases, and did more damage to Space Valkyria. They were also involved in the third-largest battle of spawn where they attacked HermeticLock's spawn base. They also attacked Fit when he was on his way to the spawn base.
Destruction of Wintermelon
On March 16th, 2017, members of what remained of 4th Reich attacked Toshie's Melon Group at Wintermelon, waged a 16 player fight, and ended up griefing it. After this, the members of the Reich either quit the server, or joined the SpawnMasons during the rest of March. The Discord remained active for a while, but no other major events were done by the Reich since Wintermelon.
The 2b2t Police
The 2b2t Police was a meme created by the 4th Reich which was presented through a video series on Tavux's and their YouTube channel. The videos showed 4th Reich members pretending to be police officers while destroying bases and killing players. This group reached its apex during the Summer of 2016.
- The videos were mainly created by Tim and Tavux, with they themselves being the '2b2t Police'.
- A member of the Peacekeepers has an account named The2b2tPolice.
- The first episode was one of the most popular videos on the 4th Reich's now-deleted YouTube channel.
- Before the Reich's disbanding, CorruptedUnicorn attempted to join the Reich and labeled his video, 2B2T: New Sheriff in Town. The thumbnail featured CorruptedUnicorn in a police uniform skin.
- Team Rusher - The 4th Reich is enemies with Team Rusher as the 4th Reich is allied with Team Veteran so, they are enemies by default. They have conducted several assaults on Rusher settlements.
- Team Veteran - The 4th Reich had very strong ties with Team Veteran as some members of the 4th Reich are oldfags.
- Team Aurora - The 4th Reich has been enemies with Team Aurora since the last month of the Rusher War. The bitterness between the groups began when the 4th Reich were talking shit around Neda T (back then a Resistance member). Once Neda created Team Aurora, the bitterness continued and even escalated to the groups exchanging griefings. Once Team Veteran was put to rest, the 4th Reich began calling Team Aurora members newfags. The two groups engaged in a three-way war including the Peacekeepers.
- Peacekeepers - The 4th Reich has been enemies with the Peacekeepers since the early days of the Rusher War due to the Peacekeepers' pro-Rusher stance. The two groups have continued their hatred for each other since the Rusher War, and the two groups fought each other in a three-way war including Team Aurora. Now the groups are allied.
- The Resistance - The Resistance was enemies with the 4th Reich due to the Resistance's Pro-Rusher values and the event between Neda T and the Reich.
- The Blind Eye Clan (Previously Ragnarok) - The 4th Reich is currently enemies with the minor group known as the Blind Eye Clan as the 4th Reich griefed their base during the events of The Three Way War.
- The group is notorious for the griefing of several famous historical builds and popularized the construction of lag machines.
