Hardcore history

Phil enjoys playing Minecraft hardcore and has become quite famous for one of his hardcore series in which he survived for five years. However, many fans are unaware that he has made not just one but several hardcore series.

Phil's first-ever hardcore video was uploaded to his channel on February 8, 2012. He wrote "1minutevideo" as the seed while creating the world because he thought that was how long the video would last. He dies to a skeleton at the end of the video.

Series 1

The first episode of Minecraft hardcore series 1 came out right after his first hardcore video on February 14, 2012. This series has one hundred and eighteen episodes and lasted more than a year. He didn't die in that world, but sadly his hard drive crashed.

Series 2

Series 2 is the most famous hardcore series of Philza, which he started on April 1, 2014. Phil used "idgaf lfg series 2 yo" followed by many exclamation marks as his world seed which spawned him on a savanna island.

This was his most extended Minecraft hardcore series where he built many remarkable things, such as the chaos caverns and sky city. Philza took his sweet time uploading his series two episodes because of which even though it lasted five years, there are only fifty-six videos in the series.

Unfortunately, Phil died to a spider after taking a lot of damage from a baby zombie with full gold armor. Later he uploaded a montage of all the things he had built in his hardcore world, and the video has reached more than thirty million views as of now. This is also his most-watched video on YouTube.

Series 3

This was the shortest hardcore series which lasted a week and a half. Phil was doing a twenty-four-hour stream during which he died due to an end dimension glitch.

The glitch causes the player to walk backward after entering the end gateway. Players do not need to worry anymore since the glitch has been patched.

Series 4
