2builders2tools (2b2t) is a Minecraft multiplayer game server founded in 2010 by an unknown owner, known online as Hausemaster.[2][4][5] 2b2t is one of the oldest servers in Minecraft.[5] 2b2t is also the oldest server in Minecraft where there are no rules, which Minecraft players like to call an "anarchy server".[1] The server is running on the same map without a single reset since its creation, with its Spawn area being extremely damaged.[6][7] The server has no rules, cheating and griefing are common, in addition to violence and racism in the game chat.[8] The server became famous among the players of Minecraft thanks to its chaotic nature.[9] According to the owner of 2b2t, as of March 2021, the server is over 10,300 gigabytes in size, and had over 600,000 players visiting at least once.[10] The server is also a viral topic on YouTube, with videos about it reaching millions of views on that website.[11]

History[change | change source]

The Minecraft server 2b2t.org was founded in 2010 by an unknown owner, known online as Hausemaster. It was advertised on 4chan and Reddit.[12] Members from different forums launched raids against each other and their work.[1] YouTuber TheCampingRusher uploaded a YouTube video on June 1, 2016, where he played on 2b2t. This caused a conflict on the server known as "The Rusher War". A queue to enter the server was soon added due to the massive influx of new players caused by the video's popularity. Players can also pay $20 to access a separate priority queue for a month.[5]

Since its creation, the server gained attention from the news. Articles were created about 2b2t on Kotaku, Vice, IGN, Newsweek and The Independent.[1][4][5][6][7] In the book Master Builder 3.0 Advanced, in April 2015, 2b2t was described as crazy, that it can get "outright wild," and that the server is a "nightmare wasteland." The book also stated that it is known as "online royalty" among Minecraft servers.[9]
