The Asylum was a group founded by Cityboss1 (or commonly known as just City) sometime in November/December of 2017. The group was prominent during in April 2018 (See: Timeline). The Asylum has participated in multiple griefs and projects, alongside many insiding attempts throughout the group's history.
After the disbanding of his first group, Team V Fawkes, in 2016, Cityboss1 continued to play on 2b2t until he founded the Asylum.
First Group Conflict
The Asylum’s first group conflict started with the Guild, SmackAttack86’s newfag group. The Guild was compromised by Asylum forces in which they dismantled The Guild. The Emperium, was considered to be an allying faction alongside, Highland, another large group on the server. With most of the members bedtrapped, alongside many of their bases being destroyed, 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 Sixth Incursion discord due to inactivity.
Asylum Disbandment 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 destroyed Cityboss1 as a result.
