It's storytime folks, and before we carry on, go ahead and brace yourself for some seriously twisted sh*t...cause we're diving deep down the rabbit's hole. People, reasonable and crazy people, are at war right now guys, and it all centers on one of Minecraft's oldest servers, 2b2t.
It might be more accurate to say that 2b2t is just one of those servers that's managed to go the longest without a 'reset.' 2b2t is all at once a bleak wasteland and a homage to a time long since passed. It's a strangely pleasant sight to behold.
Not only is 2b2t devoid of moderators altogether, but we're looking at land ungoverned by law; and the moderator Hausmaster takes the total hands-off approach. So, uh, yeah.
Etiquette goes so far as if you can build the thing, it's yours, and if you come across someone, you can kill 'em. The builds are a trip too, and include things like swastikas, burning crosses...and there's even a village called Hitlerville (see below).
The chat within 2b2t itself contains a strange mixture of edgelordiness, brutal banter, and occasionally not entirely savage conversation. Though take note, the locals in 2b2t relish the opportunity to prey upon 'rushers' (visitors/tourists) by sending them out to secluded locations where they'll starve to death...or worse.
The server kicked along swimmingly until a YouTuber - TheCampingRusher - gained knowledge of the 'monstrosity' and uploaded his experience navigating the ins and outs of the server:
The video racked up over 2 million views in an alarmingly rapid period of time, and 2b2t struggled under the newfound rush of visitors -- the server seemed poised to give out. The locals were livid. They started setting death traps for the newcomers:
Eventually after much struggle a queue was set up to put some sort of constraint on the constant flood of visitors. The queue gave priority admission to the 'veterans/locals' and the newcomers could cough over a $20/monthly fee for the same treatment.
The locals continue to fight the dawn of a new era though, and they have implemented tactics like placing genitalia and loli paintings, around spawn points to get the videos from rushers exposing the server taken down from YouTube.
Sure, 2b2t is in the throes of a war right now, but when things settle they might yet find they've reignited a love for Minecraft...right?
Well it looks like these crazed lunatics thought it was cruel or something that we're all out there trying to toss poké balls at the next animated Pidgey or whatever; but damn if they took matters too far when they decided to dress up as giant Pikachus to make their point...
Marcy Long's built herself quite the reputation as the Commonwealth's most hated character. Fallout fans just can't stand the chick, AND she was marked as an essential character, which made her impossible to kill in the game. This dude straight up fires her out of a junk mortar:
And then there's the whole bizarre tutorial of how to get rid of Marcy Long with a f**king Deathclaw:
Well the latest patch to hit Fallout 4 changes all that. The list of fixes in the update includes actual bugs, but also this little weird tidbit:
Jun and Marcy Long are no longer essential after completing “Sanctuary”
My running theory here...Bethesda was all about fixing the players' collective disgust toward Marcy Long. The hate was too real. People took it as far as creating mods in Fallout 4, where you could manage to kill Marcy Long.
Anyways, the reactions so far seem to be pretty dang positive:
What a time to be alive: a Sacramento based fool has been arrested for sending death threats to Blizzard Entertainment.
Stephen Cebula, 28, is accused of sending messages "over the internet" on July 2 & 3 saying he "may or may not pay [Blizzard] a visit with an AK47 amongst some other 'fun' tools," and "might be inclined to 'cause a disturbance' at [Blizzard's] headquarters in California with an AK47 and a few other 'opportunistic tools."
IF he's found guilty he's looking at a sweet five years in jail, and a $250K fine...Alright, I'm done.
Pastor Dwain Miller from El Dorado, Arkansas claims that Pokémon are using demonic powers to possess children everywhere; and that at one point he even saw some kid lose the ability to walk or speak, with black soot runnin' out his eyes, nose, and mouth. Alriiighty, then.
