Third Life was a vanilla hardcore SMP server created by Grian. The SMP is described as 'hardcore with a twist', as each player instead has 3 lives before being permanently eliminated, and while those with 3 or 2 lives can work with each other, those with 1 life left were required to become hostile.

Sep 21, 2021 — Nov 16, 2021

Last Life was a vanilla hardcore SMP server created by Grian, and the second season to Third Life. The rules were slightly altered, such as being able to trade lives, and a random player being chosen as the "Boogeyman" each session where they had to kill someone once before the curse was lifted. Last Life was filmed once a week, for three hours. All of the players play at the same time. Joel was eliminated in episode 9 by the duo of Rendog and Dangthatsalongname (SMajor).

Jun 17, 2022 — July 2, 2022

Double Life was the third season of the "3rd Life" Hardcore SMP by Grian where each player has three lives, and becomes hostile on their last "red" life. The world is enclosed within a border, and there is only 1 enchanting table, which in this season was located in an Ancient City. The twist for this season was that each of the 14 players was randomly assigned a "soulmate" who they would share a health bar with. Joel's soulmate was EthosLab.

March 3, 2023 — April 21, 2023

Limited Life is the fourth season of the "3rd Life" Hardcore SMP by Grian where each player has three lives, and becomes hostile on their last "red" life. The world is enclosed within a border, and the “Boogeyman” mechanic returns. The twist for this season is that each of the 14 players have 24 hours to live, losing lives based on the amount of time left. When killed, a player loses time and when a player kills another player, they gain more time. Joel was part of a group known as the “Bad Boys” with Grian and SolidarityGaming.

October 20, 2023 - December 15, 2023

Secret Life is the fifth season of the “3rd Life” Hardcore SMP by Grian where each player has three lives and becomes hostile on their last “red” life. Each player has 30 hearts with no regeneration. At the start of each session, a player is given a secret task. If they succeed their task, they are gifted hearts. But if they fail, you get nothing. They can reroll for a harder task to earn greater rewards. But, if they fail that task, they lose hearts. Joel was part of a team named the “Mounders” along with Mumbo Jumbo, BDoubleO100 and PearlescentMoon.

X Life is a modified SMP — created by Dangthatsalongname — where players start with one heart and the objective of the server is to survive with 10 lives. Losing a life adds one more heart to a player's health, and a player is eliminated from the server if they lose all of their remaining lives. Smallishbeans joined this server on May 23, 2020. He was the founder of "Jeremyism" (despite claiming his wife was the founder), which was an in-game religion that worshiped "Donkey Jeremy" — based off of a donkey cared for by Joel, as well as celebrating the name "Jeremy". Other members in his religion included Solidarity, SeaPeeKay, Strawburry17, JackSucksAtLife, and FWhip. Eventually, Scott became the leader of Jeremyism, who disbanded the religion after Jack lost all of his lives and exploded the Church of Jeremyism during his funeral.

  • A running gag was Joey Graceffa, who was the leader of the Witch Coven — an opposing faction of Jeremyism — erroneously calling the religion "Jeremiahmism".

Season 1: June 12, 2021 — January 29, 2022

Empires SMP is a 1.17 server where players establish their own empire to go to war with other empires, or trade with one another for goods and resources. His empire was named "The Mezalean Empire" or Mezalea, which is a portmanteau of "mesa" and "azalea", and was built in the terracotta-based badlands.

Season 2: June 25, 2022 — May 9, 2023

Season 2 was very similar to the original season, but with new Empires and set in version 1.19. This time, Joel founded a Greek mythology-themed empire named "Stratos" in the sky near the base of a mountain. He played a god who had domain over the sky and was 11 ft. tall.

In Season 2, there was a crossover with Hermitcraft and Empires through a rift that was in both of the servers.

Afterlife SMP (Ended)[]

Mar 4, 2022 — Jun 7, 2022

The Afterlife SMP is a modified server that is a sequel to the X Life SMP, and still maintains the Hardcore aspect of each member only having 10 lives. However, in this SMP there are additional modifications including the Origins mod, which gives each player an "origin" (generally based on a Minecraft mob) that includes special abilities and either positive, neutral, or negative traits. For each of the player's 10 lives they will obtain a new random Origin, and have the option to re-roll 3 times total over the course of the server.

MC Championship[]

MC Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for YouTubers and Streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which 10 teams of four compete in a series of 8 minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. In the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of ‘Dodgebolt’ to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having less points than the runner-up.

Joel debuted in MCC1.
