    • Unfortunately, this SimPvP Summit would be very short-lived after a massacre occurred between Sellout9 and Cutman against the other attendees. A backup summit was held on SimplicityPvE by Porkington, although this was also short-lived and featured far less attendees.

June 23rd:

June 24th:

July 12th

July 13th:

  • Korijenkins kills ImpulseAge near one of the spawn highways.
  • TheOnlySlash, Korijenkins, and Burger_Malone are all baited to the same coordinates near spawn searching for an underground base.

  • After several high-profile incidents of players using an in-game exploit to glitch Dragon Eggs into existence over the last few days, the ability to do so is subsequently banned by the admins, making it illegal to produce more dragon eggs.

August 17th:

  • The GS Trading Co. declares war on Brunoland and its affiliates, threatening to destroy the team and its base by any means necessary; the GS Trading Co. is soon joined by The Order of Wilbur, who pledges support.

August 30th:

  • Palau becomes one of the shortest-lived bases on SimPvP, lasting a mere 24 minutes from its settlement to its abandonment. This comes after the Massacre of Palau takes place, in which TheOnlySlash kills Qyburn_ and bed traps Paul358, leaving seventwoworlds and ostrich1414 to flee.

September 21st:

  • While creating a new event in the events world, ostrich1414 accidentally sets a command block using "@a"; this teleports every player online at the time into one specific location in the event, which included well over 20 players.

October 6th:

  • In retaliation for Azdin's griefing of several historic bases around spawn, a band of SimPvP players team up and grief Azpipia, one of Azdin's longest-lasting spawn builds. Craters are ripped throughout much of the desert as lavacasts are formed on top of it.

October 9th:

  • Due to a myriad of internal issues between cavehoe and f8tal_, LordPastaYT leaks three of Men Hyogi-kai's major bases: Mavossa, Calea, and Aeucius. He also officially disbands the team Men Hyogi-kai and sets off to focus on his own projects.
    • Half an hour before the leak, Lord1, on behalf of the Church of Francis, begins to grief Mavossa with TNT bombers due to LordPastaYT being the suspected leaker of Two Words. He is stopped short by several players attempting to save the city, including Antzakes1, Nostrum_Regina, Sellout9, and _Goujon_.

    • While there was no official winner as neither team was necessarily "defeated", YMP managed to acquire the most totem pops and gear degradations on the other team, causing them to declare victory.

October 31st:

    • Dsylxeia (who was in the Discord call as a third party) decided to intervene and secretly go to the fort Gem_Productions was restoring, where he griefed it in retaliation for his treatment towards xexc; this resulted in Gem_Productions deciding to take a break from the server.

December 6th:

  • For approximately 14 hours, SimPvP is down due to an unknown issue. After _Goujon_ requested a restart, the server closed down but never reopened, remaining offline between 5:40 A.M. and 7:10 P.M. (EST). This became one of the longest periods of unintentional downtime in recent server hisory.

December 7th:

    • First, the People's Coalition targets Lakeside Lodge, a small COF base built by Aebo. It is relentlessly griefed and mutilated.
    • Second, the People's Coalition targets the Church's Castle, a large temple built by several prominent Church members. The temple is severely griefed and looted.

Ostrich1414 calls in other People's Coalition troops for help, and the two sides fight a mix of air and land combat for about 15 minutes until members from both sides flee in an inconclusive end.
  • Francillian troopers attack and pop the neutral Burger_Malone, destroying their previously amicable relations and potential for alliance with the Church. This act of aggression cost the Church access to numerous valuable PC bases, which Burger_Malone could have provided as a formal ally.
  • A skirmish breaks out near spawn between the Church of Francis and the People's Coalition.
  • Lord1 fights 5-7 rebels in /world for 30 mins.
