    Well, that's what the Sanctuary is there for.

    A lot of the people that hang around spawn and kill the new players don't realize that by doing that, they're contributing to the death of the server. If someone logs in, gets killed, respawns, starves, respawns and gets killed again, they're not going to want to keep playing long enough to explore the ruins or try to survive in the grief-infested wasteland, because they can't survive the spawn long enough to look around and set up a base. That really discourages them from playing the game, and with the frequent players being at such a low count now, that's really not a good thing. So we're trying to at least give new players or players who were griefed and killed a chance to experience the server by offering food, shelter, and some basic supplies. If they go out and get griefed, then that's their problem, but getting griefed just for logging in to the server isn't a good way to draw in a fanbase.

    You act like it's never been that way. People always murdered everyone at the spawn.

    I know. And I've had three different friends that have tried to play but stopped because they couldn't get out of spawn after an hour because people kept killing them repeatedly.

    If spawn wasn't so odd to get out of, and diamond guys weren't killing new guys. We could see growth in the server.

    We need to advertise the server EVERYWHERE possible, even place we don't like.

    It seems an enderman managed his way into an area which I am going to make a farm. I hope I don't come back to my base being entirely griefed by him...

    And Miyuzaki doing things like that at spawn, trapping new players and what not, just stops new people from joining the server.

    So what if people are hanging around spawn killing people,it's always been like that,and spawn is constantly being changed,Stop moaning.There's a difference between getting people to join the server and changing fundamental parts of it.

    As I said, that's not how you get new players. There's about twenty people on at all times. When I first played, there were sixty. The server is losing players, and discouraging new players from playing isn't good for the server.

    The server's population has always been fluctuating.There will probably be an influx in players when 1.3 is out.

    no. the spawn deteroriates on a daily basis. it's not just a kind of difficult place to navigate anymore, it has become impossible to escape

    It is easy to escape, and it has been worse than that before,and most people believe that spawn should be a test,and if you can't escape you don't deserve to play on the server.

    Once again, treating new players like this isn't a good way to get them to keep playing.

    What I'm trying to say is people should stop complaining about spawn etc, it may be a factor of the player count but you have to take into consideration other things,e.g. school,timezones and updates.

    I understand that, and the playercount at basically all times is 10-30. I'm just trying to say that people wandering around spawn and just killing new players for no reason is discouraging these players from sticking to it. There was one player the other day that logged in, and was repeatedly killed because he was using the default skin, and as far as I know, he hasn't been back on.

    I've been playing on this server off and on for a year. I understand that some things are just part of 2b2t, as I've been griefed countless times and have seen what all happens. But I'm not blinded by "Well, that's just 2b2t" to see that there are some things players are doing that are forcing new players away.

    NO it hasn't.

    I escaped their last night even with Redcrew being at spawn in diamond gear killing people. I got out on maybe the 4th try in a matter of maybe 6 mins. Even after running from it out of radar range I got 1500 blocks out of spawn. And thats after being burnt from lava.

    Also even if 2b2t does ever close down, who cares. I had fun so far and isn't that the whole point?

    not to mention a void wouild be left in 2b2t's wake, someone else will come along and start up a new *REAL* anarchy server.

    2b2t was a real anarchy server and no other server will ever replace that feeling.

    It's not an if, but a when the day comes. Someone's going to have to make a replacement for 2b2t after it's gone. Maintain Vanilla hardcore survival, added greentext plugin, /guide plugin, and we'll have to start with a brand new map. Perhaps have a few core players join and help make spawn what it used to be.

    Theory is when a new player joins they expect seeing a beautiful city with signs giving instruction of what the server is, who owns it, etc.
    However on 2b2t you're thrown into a giant pit with no further instruction and no food. Added the fact that old players are in spawn killing new players; i'm sure they wouldn't stick around very long.

    What the fuck, no. The beauty of 2b2t is that it happens naturally, over time and aging like fine wine you newfag.

    Edit: Also you can't replicate 2b2t's corrupted as hell map, especially how it is near spawn with the frozen oceans and vast ruins.

    One of the things that sets 2b2t apart from all the shitty anarchy servers is all the history it has.

    People are theorizing that if the Great Wall of Autism stays up no new players will join and the lack of activity and donations will kill the server.
