What is the Doritos of Club Penguin?

The Doritos of Club Penguin is an online group on Discord affiliated with Club Penguin Armies. We were created in 2010 by CPA Legend and Creator, Wwebestfan. We operate on the game Club Penguin and do army related things.
What is Club Penguin?
Club Penguin is a huge multiplayer online game, consisting of a virtual island where games and activities are present. Players appear themselves as penguins and they can dress them up by getting virtual coins by playing games, mine for coins, etc. Club Penguin shut down in 2017 by Disney but we have Club Penguin Private Servers (CPPS) to play the game and relive our childhood memories.

We’re a Club Penguin army. We participate in hosting events and enabling you to make friends. As an army/group, we host battles, tournaments and other fun games for everyone to enjoy. We battle and do events using emotes and word tactics. Watch this video for a more in-depth understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzbQkQgak90
The purpose of our discord server is to host fun events and meetups on Club Penguin. An event is something that is planned and scheduled in advance. We ask everyone to RVSP/confirm their attendance for our events to ensure they are available to log onto Club Penguin that day and play with other people. Check our event-information channel to keep up to date with events. We ping for everyone to confirm their attendance as a reminder.

How long are events?
Events usually last 30 minutes. They may linger a bit longer depending on what type of event we do.
————————————————————————————
How do you enter giveaways/get Nitro? 
The only way you can enter for giveaways is that you attend our scheduled events. After the event, we’ll set up a giveaway bot in our announcements channel and you can react for a chance to win a giveaway. In some scenarios, we may need to reroll the giveaway in case the person is unable to accept the giveaway or they already have it.

What is the mentor program?
The Mentor Program is a program to help members learn more about our army or Club Penguin armies in general. We got some great mentors here who are more than happy to help you. They are there to answer any questions you may have, work through any issues/problems you have, or just have someone you can look up to and to build a friendship with. Check the channels on the DCP discord!

What are divisions?
Divisions are teams here in the Doritos. From time to time, we’ll host a division battle which means, instead of DCP battling another army, it’d be DCP battling each other. We put up the Nacho Cheese and the Cool Ranch teams up so you can represent one side! We host these battles just for fun and to see which division is more superior!

How do you get the uniform?
We use different CPPS (Different versions/platforms of Club Penguin) The main one we use (CP Armies) only requires you to do the command “!army DCP” and it’ll give you the items for the uniform. Other CPPS (Club Penguin Private Servers) may require you to get coins to buy the uniform. You can play games and mine for coins. Check our uniform page for more details. Make an account on https://play.cparmies.net/ and https://newcp.net/en/
————————————————————————————
How do you log on Club Penguin?
We guide you to go to the Club Penguin link to log on https://play.cparmies.net/ or https://newcp.net/en/ (We will specify what CPPS to use). Click start and log in. Then type in your username and password. After that, you’ll get a list of servers to choose from (e.g Alaska, Slushy, Marshmallow, etc.) To get more servers, click on the yellow sticky note on the right and it’ll give you more servers to choose from. Whenever we have an event, be sure to check #event-information to check what server our event will be held on. If you’re unsure, DM a staff member and we’ll be glad to help you.
————————————————————————————
How come I didn’t get a verification email?
The CPPS, CP Armies and NewCP don’t send you an email. While creating your account, put in a random email (e.g 123@gmail.com, abc@gmail.com) and then confirm to create your account. You won’t get an email to verify your account. After you create your account, just refresh the page and log in by putting in your username and password. https://play.cparmies.net/ and https://newcp.net/en/

How do promotions/ranks work?
You may see people on the discord server labeled as a “Main Leader, Third in Command, Major General, Doritos Private, etc.” Since we’re an army, we label ourselves and roles on our discord server like real armies do. In order to rank up to become staff and maybe even potentially become a leader, you need to attend events, be active in chat and help contribute to the army. Your hard work will pay off and won’t go unnoticed. After an event, we post a promotions blog post on our website for everyone to comment on. Then you’ll receive your promotion shortly after.
————————————————————————————
How can I tell what rank/region I am?
Depending on what platform you’re on (e.g PC, Phone, etc.) You can check what roles and ranks you have by simply clicking on your avatar/profile picture. You’ll be shown a list of roles you have. If you’d like to give yourself some roles, check out our self-roles channel.
————————————————————————————

How do I get a custom role?
You may see people on the discord server with fun/different color names from the rest. That’s because they have boosted the server. You can boost the server by buying Nitro boosts and boost your favorite server to give it special perks. If you have boosted the DCP server, you can DM an HCOM and up for a custom role. You can select what color you want (we recommend sending a hex code to make it easier) and the name for your role. If you stop boosting/your boost runs out, your custom role will be taken away until you boost again.
————————————————————————————

How can I get staff/admin?
In order to become staff, you need to be active on the server and attend events. As you rank up, you’ll eventually get an opportunity to fill out staff applications and be apart of our awesome staff team.
————————————————————————————

What are battles?
Battles are a organized fight between armies. A certain server and room on Club Penguin are selected. Battles are consisted of fighting with emotes and tactics. Armies battle in 3 rooms, each room going on for 10 minutes each. The way the battle is judged by voluntary judges. They judge how armies battle based on consistency, variety, and effectiveness. If you’re a member participating in a battle, you must listen to the commands given by the leaders/people talking in chat. Check out our battle-preparation and this video for a better understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2ShmWdOQ4Y
————————————————————————————

What are emotes/tactics?
When we log on Club Penguin for events, we do tactics and create cool formations in the game. People talking in chat will give a command to do a tactic on discord and as a member, it is your job to do it on the game to keep up effectiveness and have a good performance incase if it’s a battle where judges are observing your moves. (E.g you may be asked to do E2 on 3, that means you look at your Club Penguin screen and press E + 2 on your keyboard when the person counts to 3 in order for the emote/emoji to appear in-game.)

Why is my game lagging and I can’t load into the game?
Especially during battle events, you’ll notice tons of people logged onto the same server and it may create lag for you. We recommend you guys to press the minus or equal sign buttons on your keyboard to reduce game quality and hopefully make it run smoother for you. If you’re unable to get into the room we request you to go to, we’ll announce a lockout room for you to go to.
