Minecraft "Anarchy Servers" are servers that usually have no rules, no bans, no map resets, and traditionally allow the use of hacks/exploits and "hacked clients". The most famous of these servers is 2b2t.org, which runs on Minecraft 1.12 and is, as some claim, the oldest anarchy server in Minecraft (most notably the YouTuber FitMC). The server rose to more mainstream popularity after June of 2016 when a YouTuber by the name of TheCampingRusher streamed himself as he played on the server.
TheCampingRusher's video sparked a new wave of joins to the already years-old server. This ignited a war referred to as the "Rusher War", between new-join viewers of TheCampingRusher's videos, and the existing player base of the server. This rise in demand for Anarchy Minecraft Servers encouraged many to create their own "2b2t clones", or servers that attempt to emulate the gameplay experience of 2b2t to varying degrees.
Since then, many of these 2b2t clones have been created, and Anarchy Servers are growing in popularity every day. There are now Anarchy servers for every version of Minecraft from 1.12 to the latest Caves & Cliffs Update 1.17.
Below we have compiled a list of 1.17 Anarchy Servers to help players looking for an experience similar to 2b2t on 1.17, and to keep track of which servers are still online. The first "Pure" 1.17 Anarchy Server like 2b2t was Absolute Vanilla Anarchy Survival, or AVAS, and it is currently our recommendation for 1.17 Anarchy as it is the largest and oldest of its kind.
