PigRiders quickly gained their power through the high amount of members in the faction. Players being able to co-operate via Skype was also helpful, and much of the battle-planning took place during physics lessons at school.
Although PigRiders had many members, they were also superior in armour and weapons to many of the other factions. The diamonds acquired to make the tools and weapons were obtained by some players who used x-ray hacks. However, no players were banned for it, as gorzendreef admitted to TD808 that he and some others using x-ray and promised to never use it again.
PigRiders managed to keep away from all other factions' search parties. Their base was located on a small island far away from spawn. They managed to keep up this act until GermFreeLild and mrburnsalot went on a holiday. According to FOTS member xZombieMike, the base was filled and destroyed using TNT, however no PigRider can confirm this.
During the second factions map, concealment became PigRiders' main power. Keeping their base hidden and striking against smaller factions, using TNT and creepers.
FOTS Alliance (Second Factions Map)Edit
With the new faction Darkness, run by FaintingHope, becoming more and more powerful. With members outclassing any one player in combat skills alone, PigRider C7K decided to take action, siding with their old enemy FOTS to beat their common enemy: Darkness.
Although the days of Factions are behind us, the 5 founders of PigRiders are still known by the faction's name. In
fact, two of them have gone to become moderators. Today, a few of the PigRider veterans can be seen wearing a black leather biker jacket with a pig's face on the back. Also, the PigRider religion is still practiced by a few, with C7K being the main priest.
Rumour has it that the PigRiders are to start a town called New Pork.
- For a very short while, PigRiders changed their name to GhastBusters.
