|The Blue Corner|
|Name||The Blue Corner|
|Description||The most glorious corner on the internet.|
The Blue Corner is a faction that began in r/place 2017 and re-appeared in r/place 2022. The goal of the faction is to make the bottom-right corner of the canvas blue, a goal it achieved in both events.
The blue corner was one of the earliest structures on the canvas only being predated by the Green Box. A subreddit was quickly established for the community, r/BlueCorner; this subreddit and it's corresponding discord server would direct the affairs of the Blue Corner for a significant part of the Canvas's history.
The Blue Empire Period
The Blue Corner quickly expanded during the first day of r/place until they took up 1/8th of the canvas. Besides their main territory in the bottom right of the Canvas, the Blue Corner also owned a small territory near the center of the canvas and the top left corner of the canvas. This expansion caused the Blue Corner to make many enemies including the purple, green, and red corners, Erase the place, and most notably the streamer Destiny who would end the Blue Empire.
The Corner Wars
Early on during the first day of the canvas, the blue corner began to build a highway of blue pixels which would connect the bottom-right and top-left corners of the canvas. After this highway was completed, r/erasetheplace began to take over the center of the canvas, causing the highway between the main territory of the Blue-corner in the bottom-right and their colony in the top-left to become disconnected. The Blue Corner and r/erasetheplace would battle in the center of the canvas for the rest of the Blue Empire Period.
The Blue Corner colony in the top left was eventually the site of a massive rebellion as people banded together to fight back against the Blue Corner by placing Purple pixels in the top-left corner. This revolt was successful and the Blue Corner was never able to reconquer the top-left corner.
While this conflicts was taking place, the other corners of the canvas were being taken over by other color-based groups. The Red Corner in the top-right and Green Corner in the bottom-left were both significantly smaller than the Blue Corner, but they were nonetheless seen as rivals by the Blue Corner. The Blue Corner would organize a raid against these factions that would last until the Blue Corner itself was destroyed.
During r/place 2017 The Blue Corner formed at (999, 999). During r/place 2022 The Blue Corner was reestablished.
During r/place 2017 and 2022 The Blue Corner fought many enemies. In 2022 it faces a unique problem - the corner itself moved. The corner was completely relocated twice during r/place 2022.
Alliances & Enemies
The Blue Corner had many strong alliances, and strong enemies. To list, Cosmere, St louis blues, The American flag, the turtles, Scottland. these allays helped us out when we need it most. Enemies to list, Among us, The red corner, XQCow, Unorganized Members Of The Blue Corner. We were mainly mutual to the void.
In the end The Blue Corner was triumphant. Standing tall until the whiteout destroyed the whole canvas. When r/TheFinalClean finished their version of the canvas they vandalized The Blue Corner by placing their watermark over it.
