The server was originally founded by Graf33 as craft grounds.
After a few updates, the server was eventually re-branded as LockedCraft
The server was very active through its golden ages, with graf coming on and hosting occasional events.
At its peak, the server reached a peak of over 1000 users daily.
With Graf's decrease in interest and activity, and the recent regression of Towny interest in the MineCraft community abroad, the server population has been on a steady decrease.
This decrease continued, and despite a 1.8 reset, Graf still remained extremely inactive.
The server shut down in early 2016.
