Beginnings[edit | edit source]
popbob joined 2b2t in early 2011 as a 4channer and would later become a Facepuncher. She is one of the oldest 2b2t players. As policemike55 once said: "I know there are older players on 2b2t but [s]he is the oldest I can remember." The most famous base popbob was ever part of was called Squid Base. She randomly found the base during a base hunt by going through nether portals. Even back then, popbob had already gained notoriety as a griefer, so as the members of Squid Town gave her a tour and an invitation to join, she came to terms that the base would be griefed. Luckily for them, popbob accepted the invitation. She teamed with policemike55, passie05, xcc2, chase101, and CreamOfTheSlop, and helped with the construction. She would go on to build a glass dome there. Luke2thebun later griefed the base so she abandoned it.
Griefing and infamy[edit | edit source]
popbob went on to become an infamous griefer and toxic player. She worked mostly alone in their griefing outbreaks and occasionally griefed with other Facepunchers during the Facepunch Era of 2b2t and with D4RKJ0E (jared2013) or iTristan during the Age of Tyranny. She was able to determine other players' coordinates using the thunderbolt exploit. The exploit used an oversight in Minecraft's code that allowed the coordinates of thunder to be tracked down through packets, as the sound of thunder was global and would only strike where players were located. The exploit would send the coordinates to popbob in chat, which allowed popbob to find players, kill them, and grief their bases.
Another activity that gained popbob infamy was stealing information from other players. When many players, including xcc2, taylo112, and iTristan, were rebuilding a base known as Kaamtown, popbob used nhack to screenshot Omaliymix and Kaameron's desktops and send it to them. She both quit 2b2t after that, and xcc2 stopped using nhack. However, iTristan and ImperatorTerrae, as well as some others, continued to use it.
During The Third Incursion, popbob's griefing reign finally ended when the incursion members hunted popbob down and caused her to combat log. After this, popbob has left and rejoined many times on alt accounts or on her main. popbob uses alt accounts to keep their identity secret from the wave of new players, as the majority of them do not know the existence of these. Many people believe popbob quit 2b2t because of what FitMC said, but she does join 2b2t occasionally on alt accounts as aforementioned.
popbob changed her skin from her troll-face skin to an all-white skin on July 7, 2016. She was also seen on 2b2t on December 4, 2016. Also, sometime in 2016, she reconnected a link in a chain of beds using the bed teleportation exploit on an alternate account known as RadicalHiccup so that jared2013 could use it to grief a base known as The Lands, a base owned by Jacktherippa.
On June 13, 2020, popbob changed her Minecraft skin to the trans rights flag. She also linked a Steam profile on their NameMC page by the name of Mackenzie, and she commonly use the name Kenzie on Discord.
