On that fateful day long ago, a man known as killerteddy1 had a Minecraft server known as Fatality Minecraft. On April 26, 2011, this server merged into Chaotic United and ever since then, CU grew more and more every day.
A day that, while not yet known, would change Chaotic United forever just a couple years down the road.

A long time administrator of Chaotic United, stoneharry, deleted the CU website and server. Noone knows why he did it to this day.

Chaotic United was going strong for years. But things were slowing to a crawl. For the past year, CU was running on the talent, time, and money of Atomicbeast101, Ntx2 and several more. But it wasn't enough. Killerteddy wasn't satisfied with the player counts and wanted to close the CU server due to lack of profits. The CU staff would not let killerteddy kill off such a great community, so they left - and founded Nuclear District.
As CU was being drained of its playerbase, killerteddy offered josh_3210 some extra players by pointing the chaoticunited.com domain at HurricaneCraft. HurricaneCraft was granted usage of the old Chaotic Unietd forums, which were rebranded under HurricaneCraft.
Nuclear District was founded!
CU was gone for almost a year. HurricaneCraft had long since shut down, and ND was lagging behind in population. Haloman30 and Alycat took it upon themselves to rebuild Chaotic United.
Not too long after the CU revival had begun, Alycat introduced AwakenedRage (Michael) to Chaotic United. He helped host CU's servers for over a year, and would continue to be a key Administrator for the forseeable future of CU.
In the late spring of 2015, several members of Chaotic United helped to secure the future of the community. Michael, Mike79953, and a couple others pitched in to get Chaotic United trademarked. Thanks to this, Chaotic United was locked in as the one and only real CU, and prevented others with malicious intent from being capable of taking the name.
After several talks with ND and CU staff, the administration agreed that the two communities should to be united once and for all. Today, they exist in harmony together.
Thanks to the genrosity of Alycat, Chaotic United was able to get a dedicated server, instead of running on a VPS. The dedicated server had 32GB of RAM. That's insane! With the dedicated server came a CU custom modpack server.
Due to bank issues on Alycat's end, the dedicated server was indeed lost. But that is just for that time, it would be obtained once more under more secure circumstances.
A massive drama event occured on Chaotic United during Spring 2017. Due to increasing tensions between staff members, mishandled merge attempts, and a general massive faceplant on part of CU's administration, Aly was demoted and later banned from CU to try and salvage a merge with WindFrontier. As time went on, haloman30 - the other owner - had several bouts of severe regret for allowing everything to happen the way it did. After several back and forth flips between "aly doesn't deserve this" and "aly needs to be kept out", the final move was made and Aly was reintroduced as an Owner of CU. During this time, several staff members, new and old, had abandonded CU. Most went onward to Elaztek Studios - a game development company that had its roots dating back to 2013 and now served as a safe haven for those who couldn't stand Aly. In addition to staff members, many of CU's active players gave up on the CU revival entirely due to the drama that painted a picture of an inexperienced team and the sheer lack of apparent progress in over 2 years. Shortly after this, CU started work on a second relaunch - Chaotic United had effectively returned to square one.
On June 23, the long search and effort to obtain CU.com came to a close. After the domain became availible on the domain marketplace, money was pooled together to obtain the domain and, from then on out, was ours.
The drama with WindFrontier had taken its toll on Chaotic United. Many of its staff were now inactive, several had left, and most of its playerbase had left in the midst of the chaos. On October 17, the decision was made to hide all announcement topics relating to WindFrontier from the public eye. It was unclear if they would be made public again. One thing was certain, however. New members would not be so thrilled to join if they looked on forums and found a series of topics going back and forth with drama on the first page of announcements.
Due to the increasing resource requirements of the MC server, frequent crashes, lag, and even server OS damage due to a lack of disk space and other resources, Michael once again held his hand out to CU to grant a 16GB Dedicated server for the MC servers continued expansion.
After many months of continuous work, CU finally updated its server to MC 1.12. Along with this new update, it maintained backwards compatiability with old versions, as well as improved NDParkour and introduced MobArena. An additional mode called The Arena - which was going to be an umbrella for several PvP-focused modes - was planned, but never made it in.
Upon the release of ElDewrito's 0.6 update, CU joined the bandwagon and launched several servers for the game. These servers were Grifball, Forge, and Battlegrounds. The Grifball server was a collection of custom maps made by CU or its playerbase. The Forge server was a server utilizing a modified gametype using the same technique as in Halo 3 to allow for Forge in custom games. The Battlegrounds server was a general grouping of more traditional combat gametypes.
CU introduced it's new Semi-Vanilla server, and with it, migrated CU back into a BungeeCord Network - which hadn't been used since the early days of the merge with Nuclear District. It utilized a modified hub from the ND merge as a lobby between the two servers. The Semi-Vanilla experience was focused on having a mostly vanilla-style experience, with limited donation perks and no fancy extensions that drastically alter the way the game is played.
After a long period of neglect, CU's modded server and custom modpack was returned to and given additional updates and a long-needed world reset.
After two years, the CU team honored the legacy of Nuclear District by reintroducing several of ND's original forums themes, as well as building an archive page to view all of ND's old websites.
