8000 Base, colloquially called Tugboat Base, is a base which was built by The Fellowship of the Diamond sometime in 2012. It was amongst the last bases of the Fellowship before they all quit after their resurgence in 2015.

History of the Base

The base was built relatively near spawn, like many of Fellowship's bases in mid 2012. It consisted of a large cobblestone castle, a stone brick tower, and a cartoon-style tugboat in a harbour outside the castle. The tugboat is how the base got its common name due to not many people knowing its original name.

In 2013, most members of the Fellowship became bored, or had other things in life, so they quit 2b2t. Tugboat Base became abandoned, and was forgotten until late 2013, until it was griefed heavily, and was forgotten again. In 2014, individual players came across the decimated Tugboat Base and across many months it was rebuilt by many players. When the Fellowship eventually resurfaced in 2015, it returned to its former glory, and the signature Tugboat was built. By the Rusher War, many rushers began using the base as a milestone, and had set up many farms in and around it. The original buildings were surprisingly intact for several months, given the influx of new players. Ultimately, very little changed until Joey_Coconut came to the base in late July of 2016, and established himself there with a group of rushers. They constructed a large melon farm, which fed many new players, including AutismBot, then known as Slappnbadkids. The base was griefed shortly after they left. Joey_Coconut and Drachenstien attempted to repair the damage the following year, with most of the base being reasonably brought back to its pre-2016 state, except for the castle which was destroyed beyond repair.

A Tutt Tutt replica was built at Block Game Mecca in remembrance of several of its members' time spent at Tugboat Base.
