About 2b2t in brief
The 2b2t Minecraft server was founded in December 2010. The server has seen over 580,000 players explore its procedurally-generated map, increasing its file size to over 9 terabytes. As the server has virtually no rules or authority, griefing and hacking are common amongst players, with no risk of getting banned. In June 2016, YouTuber ‘TheCampingRusher’ uploaded a YouTube video of himself playing on the server. This caused a massive influx of new players from the channel’s audience, as the video gained over two million views in less than four months from its upload. In response to the inundated server and hardware, a queue to enter the queue was added. The queue has been described as an ‘onerous task’ and can contain over a thousand players waiting in it. As of November 2020, the file size of 2 b2t’s map has increased to more than 9 terabyte, according to the server’s official subreddit. Players usually need to hide and be armed in order to survive, and can usually expect to be armed and armed to survive. The founders are anonymous, choosing to remain unknown or known only via usernames; the most prominent founder is commonly referred to as Hausemaster, HauseMaster, or Hausmaster. The servers have been described in news media as the worst Minecraft server due to its playerbase and culture. It is the oldest anarchy server in Minecraft, as well as one of the oldest running Minecraft servers of any variety.
The server operator is relatively hands-off in administrating the server, except in fixing game-breaking exploits, with the server costing US$90 a month to maintain. The founder eventually stopped playing Minecraft, though the server remained online due to the large player base that had been formed. Some older players deterred new players by destroying the spawn-in area to make it uninhabitable and extremely challenging to proceed from. Some placed obscene content around the spawn area and along player-built roads in an attempt to get TheCampedRusher’s YouTube videos taken down due to violations of YouTube’s terms of service. Although the new players, who called themselves ‘Rushers’, largely outnumbered the older players at the time, these older players had years of experience and resources. The new players had destroyed bases and monuments on theServer that had stood for years, which is partially what had caused such a response from the player base. In June 2013, the storage usage had increased to almost 800 gigabytes, and in October 2015, it was reported to be over 500 gigabytes. A separate queue to access the server was added, although it has been removed after a year.
