Sanse : I had to get some popcorn because it's like watching a documentary about history

creajakt : im not a brony but this was a cool internet story that I wish I could have been a part of

Mr. Meloetta : I'm not a brony, but this is still pretty intense. All I can gather was that r/place was the original PUBG before PUBG. Also, 1:56 *N Y E H H E H H E H ! I T I S I T H E G R E A T P A P Y R U S*

SpaceLord : I was part of blue corner. Sorry for destroying your pony that early.

ricardofr-200 : The blue shield is actually the logo of the University my cousin was in. IST means Instituo Superior Técnico. Now I feel weird to know that my own country nearly took over the Pony Faction.

Scyrina : Holy shit, didn't know this community was still so strong going. Sweet.

Michael Rhyan Vlogs : I was a bot coder for sans! We appreciate the help during the war much love❤️

This Is A Name : I was part of the void. We fought hard and we tried and tried yet we failed as others built. It was a hard and good battle. Especially Dashie. Respect for all you.

Verdigry potato : I was a tiny tardis warrior.

DNK : Personally don’t get the whole Brony thing at all but this was a very well made video and kept me interested

Fuzzy Stripetail : I find it extremely ironic that Rainbow Dash didn't lose a wink of sleep while the brony fandom sacrificed their own sleep and well-being to protect Dash from the villainous void.

Cyan Draws : I was one of the veterans of r/place. I lead the void's attacks, and i had quite a fun time. I did not agree with the attacks on bronies, but the void was mostly people from /pol/ and other boards. There was a replacement for r/place and void was wiped from it by the owner and many bots. We are now just a shitposting gaming server, but hey it was fun none-theless. Edit: So i went back to watch this video again, 3 months later, and realized you can hear my voice in the recording! At 0:42 ~ish the person doing the countdown is me! Jesus i sounded like a pussy back then. I also was in charge of some diplomatic authority, and i was the main negotiator between the void and r/dwarffortress considering i liked both, i actually managed to save dwarf fortress, and we had gained an ally in that if we helped defend dwarffortress from r/rainbowroad and other attackers, they would help us in our efforts. Edit 2: If you want, i can elaborate on some of the attacking formations of how the void worked. As littleshy said, our main form of attacking was by tendrilling out, and building cores. It was frowned upon to start a core from some random part of the map that the void was not connected to. However we had more than just a few cores. Most of them were jokes when people were starting to lose hope, like "homer core" in which we transformed one of homer simpson's eyeballs into a void, it was quickly destroyed. We also tried to take over the command prompt in the top left of the map, that was shut down after a while. Eventually however after people began losing moral, some left the discord server (one killed himself in voice chat, rest in peace my man.) but, all who stayed, deprived themselves from sleep and all, just to defend the core in it's final moments. I guess i got a little off track there, but anyways, back onto how we actually attacked, whilst i was in charge. We would all get in voice chat, and most would just spam their mics, but i would announce after around 5 minutes, that we are going to prepare for an attack. Then i would state a month. "If you were born in january, go", wait a couple of seconds, "february, go" etc. This spawned the meme of when i was so sleep deprived i said "TUESDAY, GO", and the chat went into a mishmash of spam, headache inducing noise, and of course laughter. As for channels in the old void discord, we had #general, #warplans, #diplomacy, #memes and #propoganda, as well as 5~ish voice chats and channels for our groups to focus on such as defense, attack, etc. In the end, the void was a fun experiment, and i'm proud to have taken part in it. God damn it i sound like a faggot <3

Daklog : I'm not a brony myself, but this is considered a grand milestone for ALL communities and the internet as a whole. It really shows that an entire Earth's worth of history can be summarized in 3 days on the internet, with decisions like "enemy/ally" or "fight/surrender" being really prevalent both in this subreddit and human nature. It's like history repeating itself in one little page.

Warhawk 3126 : This just shot back some reminiscent memories. I was originally a soldier for The Void, but by the 2nd day, ended up deserting The Void to protect Rainbow Dash.

Kyra Jill : Epic factions, through-the-night defense, shaky alliences, eminent betrayal, constant threat of destruction, suspense, teamwork and fun.... Sounds like my mind of deal! Wish I could have helped dashie survive

ethan hatcher : God, I wish I was there

KeanuIronShield : I’m surprised that no one made the Soviet Union

xXSw4gmite 3000Xx : This is why love the brony community, this was a big inspiration and it was like a light that refuses to be put out

chaee_ : Not in the mlp fandom but this is amazing

Lictor DeathLeaper : What baffles me the most is that it;s not the fact that the Bronies stood strong, defending their pony till the end, but rather how the hell the god damn Darth Plagueis copy pasta is in the ifnal version. Though I'm not one for Ponies, I'm thankful for this video as it showed me quite an awe-inspiring history. Even my country managed to hold on to a territory which is impressive.

indeed : well done the bronies once again proved they were the most autistic

Some Crazy Gaming : I was the 9k like

Alexander Wilson : I am a proud veteran of this event. I fought for the runescape faction. I don't regret it one bit.

Panagiotis Pita : i was actually a greek /r/place soldier, the invasion by turkey was completely different in real life though, they started vandalizing the flag with red with us already knowing who it was, we were well cordinated which is why we were the ones who had them to send a sort of peace treaty.

MrBallPython : I don't like to call myself a Brony or associate myself with it even though I have all the "qualifications" to be called one but this was an amzing video with an amazing story!! Have a nice day!

Pop Bitz Blast : Something really warms my heart about how dedicated a group of people can get to a social experiment and will end up teaming up and bonding over the smallest things. (I GUESS FRIENDSHIP REALLY IS MAGI-) I don't know why this was recommended to me, but i'm glad it was. Very interesting!

BROXYGMING : Call me the god of Protectors of the brownie Force of keeping Dashie safe forever and inturnley👍😉😎👌😊😘😇👌🐴

Bristol Pusher : I really hope Reddit redoes this some day.

Spectral Arrow : America : r/place Soviet Union : Our Place

BTS WEEB : Lol I ain’t even a brony I don’t really like mlp but I watch this alot!

Woable Attack : Never heard of this until now... i noticed three things: 1. People like to create something cooperatively 2. Germany was going strong 3. War is natural to human beeings

Aric Hutfles : You made a very interesting video about an utterly pointless and idiotic project.

OverSane : I wish the void had consumed all. Especially the ponies.

Mehless : And that's how Equestria was made.

What if : This reminds me of WWII

AugmentedGravity : This was so cool and legit one of the most interesting, engaging and educational videos i've seen in a long time here on youtube.

Owenboy360 : Idk why but the parts involving Halo made me geek out quite a bit

Anti-Logan Paul Anti-Logan Paul : Brony fandoms first active war huh? 🏳‍🌈 Amazing

AceWissle : Wow, that was pretty awesome. I had no idea this event was even going on, having nothing to do with Reddit. Wonder why eqd never posted about that (or did they). I really liked that video, would love to see more such stuff, reviews of / insights into cool events such as this.

Gdsryrox : When halo wanted to invade, lol

SmolBeanVids : This was the first brony-made video I watched. I didnt even know that this was a brony video at first but I stayed. Now I'm a brony myself and I absolutely love MLP

Wandering Albatross : I just really enjoy communities coming together. Also, lovely vid.

draco 96 : I was part of the void but only to protect my creations

The Great MC : This is so fascinating. Strange how I could spend hours listening to internet history but get bored and fall asleep only minutes into history class.

Citokyne Studios : This made me laugh at the epicness of a subreddit The Blue Corner The Void Sounds like enemies you'd see in an anime

Zetsumei the saytr : I was hoping the void won XD

Paul Smith aka ft foxy : This is literally making me cry it's so beautiful I'm going to join to the silver war the pony War

Landon : osu! here. Cool seeing how other factions fought.

PowWow Animations : This should be a book.

Jake English : i dont really know any/care for pony guys but this is actually cool and funny imo
