The Asylum was a group founded by Cityboss1 sometime in November/December of 2017. The group was prominent during The Unification Period and participated in multiple griefs, insides, builds, and group conflicts throughout the timeframe.
After the disbanding of his first group, V Fawkes, in 2016, cityboss1 continued to play on the server until he decided to found the Asylum in late 2017. The group grew rapidly, similarly to many of the other groups around the period.
First Group Conflict
The Asylum’s first group conflict started with the Guild, SmackAttack86’s newfag group. The Guild was insided and dismantled by the Asylum, the Emperium (who were strong allies), and the Highland. With most of the members bedtrapped, builds griefed, and SmackAttack86 quitting, the Guild fell, and the Asylum rose to prominence.
The Asylum was initially friendly towards the Peacekeepers. This was not to last. Pandasauce began to act increasingly provocatively towards cityboss1, with the two soon falling out. The Asylum began to grief Peacekeeper bases. The Asylum also came into conflict with Highland due to Asylum’s relations with the Emperium.
The Vo-Perium War
During the Vo-Perium War, the Asylum aided the Emperium against the Vortex Coalition, for the roughly three weeks the war lasted. Infrared aligned itself with VoCo, becoming enemies of the Asylum and the Emperium. Once the war ended, VoCo, the Emperium, and the Asylum made peace with each other. The Asylum and the Emperium continued hostilities towards Infrared.
The UGE and AA conflict
When the Emperium founded the United Group Embassy (UGE), the Asylum was the first additional group to join. Eventually, many smaller groups and factions began to join the UGE, with the alliance inviting Highland, Infrared, and the Peacekeepers. However, these three groups betrayed the UGE, destroying the first UGE base, and leaking the third. The three groups then made official their own alliance, the Alpha Alliance (AA), in which they sought to destroy the UGE. The UGE managed to fend off the AA and the war eventually died out.
UGE inactivity and the 6th Incursion
When UGE activity died down, the Asylum left the alliance. Once the 6th Incursion occurred, the Asylum substantially participated in both the temp maps, and spawn. They were joined by VoCo, the Spawn Masons, and the Emperium. The group fought the Antfag Invasion, and the former AA members during the incursion. Cityboss1 got sick in real life and was unable to participate further. He was eventually demoted in the 6th Incursion discord due to inactivity.
Asylum Disbandenment and Post-Asylum Drama
Due to city becoming sick and unable to play, the Asylum soon became inactive, with city eventually disbanding the group. Once city recovered, he returned to the server and became friends with Retronaut, the leader of Infrared. The Emperium subsequently spread rumors that City “dated Retronaut”, the remnants of Asylum distrusted city as a result.
- The Asylum's banner and symbol were brought from city’s previous group, V Fawkes.
- The Asylum, according to city, did not face many betrayals or insides.
- The Asylum was, by some accounts, the 4th largest group on 2b2t between late 2017 and early 2018.
