2019 - The First Wave

May

  • May 27: hyperdefined launches the server around 5PM EST on version 1.12.2, and advertises it on other major anarchy servers as a lag free alternative.
  • May 28: Members of Two for One open the End and kill the Ender Dragon for the first time. Simultaneously, BJs4Lapis betrays the group, killing a few players with the Oath Breaker and griefing the base. Two for One is then abandoned.
    • Sanderall, the first Discord bot, is introduced to the server and quickly becomes infamous among the playerbase.
    • The group Primis is (presumably) founded on this day.
    • Construction of Nether highways begins, most of initial work done by members of Primis.
  • May 29: The Citadel is founded by Blaze_Warfare and former members of Two for One.
    • Server hardware is upgraded.
    • Items can now have color codes in the name. This feature is still on the server today.
  • May 30: A swarm of over fifty withers appear in the Nether, destroying many of the newly built highways and creating a massive crater at 0,0. Blaze_Warfare is later revealed to be responsible for this.
    • The server hits a record total of 37 players online at the same time. This record has yet to be broken.
  • May 31: _HervisDaubeny finds the ruins of Two for One and starts repairing them.

June

  • June 1: BJs4Lapis discovers the coordinates of the Citadel, and Blaze_Warfare destroys the base with withers to prevent it from being griefed by others.
    • Fellstrond is founded by weedsniff and _Nukaa. exoh42 follows shortly after them. The base is still standing and unknown to a large majority of the player base.

    • Conga0 achieves the first duplication on the server at an outpost that would come to be called the DupePost.
  • June 2: End crystals are disabled in the Overworld and Nether.
  • June 3: The Field of Food project is founded by Xenara and _HervisDaubeny. Several other players join and contribute resources.
  • June 4: As the sheer number of withers in the Nether continues to cause extreme TPS drops, several players join up to purge them to a more reasonable level.
  • June 7: The Field of Food is griefed by __Payne__ and U_Bot. As a result, Xenara creates a second Field of Food with some of the old members.
  • June 8: The second Field of Food is griefed through unknown circumstances (although it is possible that Zzaclipse was partially responsible). portego, Viizen, and ByteKing burn the remains in a show of honor.

    • Donkey and llama riding are disabled.
