Dear people of EscapeRestart aka Blocktopia aka TheOne’s,

on April 17th 2010 a German gamer dude stumbled upon a new game and subsequently a new community with awesome people that were doing amazing things with this game by offering customized servers with customized gamemodes.

Half a year later, after rising through the ranks from being a Zombie OP, to a VetOp, to a community wide Controller, to a Head Controller for the back then new TNT server, the German dude was tasked with running the backend and infrastructure for all the servers in the community - and has so every since October 2010.

And here I am today, 5 years later, 5 years older, 5 years…wiser?

I had an amazing time with this community, from the absolute high points to the absolute drama filled low points, with an amount of stories that could fill a book. I saw the rise of and fall of servers, the rise and fall of staff members, the DDOS attacks, the endless fun IRC hours, the weird, the funny, the absurd. But most of all I saw an ever-changing group of dedicated and great people that live for this community and make it the wonderful place it has been and will continue to be.

Alas, today on my 5th year anniversary, it is time for me to hang up my (ass-)hat.

I would be lying if I said that the 5 years with this community haven’t influenced me. Quite the contrary: They were a huge part of my life, always a place I could go for a laugh and support, no matter how big the personal changes I had in my private life (Protip: Getting married and setting up new minecraft servers at the same time can be…an interesting experience). I tried to make a list of all the servers I helped setting up, I set up myself (Treasurehunt! Vampires! Solitude!), but I lost count. All I know is: It was usually fun, no matter the stress.

I also won’t make a list of the countless awesome things that happened next to the servers, all the insiders that most people never heard about, all the craziness we...

Hey all.

Doing a couple more small events over this weekend! Pretty self-explanatory, so we'll get right into it.

On Friday night(after the meeting), we will be doing our first Game Night. GMod is going to be required for this night, because we're going to play GMod Prop Hunt. Available to the public after the meeting, have fun!



On Saturday night(9PM EST), we're going to try a specific kind of movie night, Anime Night. We're going to let you guys choose what to watch though, hopefully everyone enjoys the poll options. Whatever wins, please note that this is going to be Dubbed, not Subbed.

Click here to vote!

List of animes on the poll, so you guys can read up on them:

Summer Wars
Perfect Blue
Spirited Away
Howl's Moving Castle

UPDATE: SUMMER WARS IS THE WINNER

If anyone has any questions, of course feel free to ask.

Hope everybody enjoys.​

Due to popular demand - we've decided to add a Starbound Server to our current lineup which can be found at 85.114.135.179:21025 - to coincide with this a starbound subforum has been added for those of you that wish to discuss in-game matters.

Typical rules regarding how to treat people will apply and, if necessary, additional rules will be added to the subforum.

The server will remain for now as an event server - and may be extended depending on its popularity.
