Doritos Sees End of Factions Season 1; Surprise Win

Earlier this week, Doritos Gaming witnessed the epic and surprising ending of the first season of Factions. With the one-man faction Swoop managing to come on top and the underdog faction BamsBoys coming in second, the Doritos were left in shock. What led up to these factions winning?

All of the factions were anxious as to what would happen at the end of Season 1. There appeared to mainly be only four factions still active, consisting of Swoop, BamsBoys, AmazonLLC, and BlueBloods. All other factions had either quit, merged, or become inactive.

On February 13th, the members of AmazonLLC got online and discovered that they had been raided by none other than the mysterious one-man faction Swoop. This put Amazon in second place, with the now-inactive faction Spartans in third. Filled with a thirst for revenge, Amazon decided to attack Swoop, resulting in a massive raid lasting about an hour and a half. In the end, all of the spawners placed in the incredibly well designed Swoop base were either destroyed or stolen. Soon after, the leader of Swoop, ActuallySilver came online and began to take on the entirety of the Amazon faction, a 5v1 battle. Silver, realizing he was outnumbered, retreated and began to create a kelp wall around his base to create source blocks, so that he could later place soul sand and push invading withers upwards. The Doritos Reporting Team reached out to ActuallySilver if he was expecting the raid, he states the following: ”

Yeah I was expecting it, hence why I put up extra defenses beforehand, and also why I didn’t put all my spawners in the same place.

Amazon, now taking first place by 2 million, decided to wait out the remainder of the time on Sunday. However, more and more people began to arrive on the server, including the entirety of BamsBoys and a few members of BlueBloods. Moments later, with only 40 minutes remaining on the faction clock, Swoop and BamsBoys appeared on the leaderboard with startling amounts of money, with Swoop at about 45 million dollars and BamsBoys at about 9 million.

Amazon, now desperate and in third place, started to split up and search the overworld for one of the 2 remaining BamsBoys bases. Finally, with but twenty minutes remaining, Amazon co-leader Artnie discovered the floating BamsBoys base above an ocean. Instantly, all of the Amazon members teleported to him and began to build upwards. Through the usage of world-download, Amazon leader Nautilus discovered that his faction had hit the jackpot; there were iron golem spawners inside of this base. With only ten minutes now remaining, Nautilus gave Artnie wither-building material and a wither was quickly created. The anxious faction then took their seven members and their wither and burst through the wall of the small BamsBoys base, resulting in an incredibly stressful battle.

The Doritos Reportin Team sat down with BamsBoys leader Aaronstone42 on what he thought about the battle, and he replied with

It was pretty badass man. I was waiting that all season long, and I was fighting both mobs and people. My heart was beating so fast, and because we had a pretty good rivalry with Amazon, it only added to it.

The battle was indeed intense, as the room was very cramped and filled with about 14 players, several iron golems, multiple zombies, and dozens of other mobs. During the battle, several people being pushed into corners by iron golems. During this fight, Amazon was also trying to remove the BamsBoys spawners through the usage of creeper eggs, however, ran out very quickly. As the minutes ticked down, the room became emptier and emptier, with a small amount of BamsBoys remaining at the end of it all. NautilusSirius had a sense of dread fell over him, realizing his faction hadn’t done enough to bring the BamsBoys down.

At the end of it all, the prize was easily taken by Swoop, which it can be agreed was well deserved, as one man managed to build an incredibly large base. ActuallySilver also managed to make several regen walls. To put this in perspective, AmazonLLC didn’t even finish half of their regen walls.

Be sure to attend the season 2 factions release on Saturday, February 20th, at 3 PM EST for a crate key giveaway. We’re hoping that this season will be more competitive than the last, as we’re expecting many new people to be joining. Good luck to all participating factions!
