SUMMIT, Doritos Capital – It’s not been long since the Doritos army witnessed a war within themselves. The Doritos have come to a point of stability, but now they witness retirement of one Gingersnap, who is a former Leader and a Doritos Army Legend. It’s time to get into details and check out more about why he decided to retire.
Before we dive into details, let us have a short trip down Doritos Army history within our community.
It’s not been long since Doritos Army opened their gates to Club Penguin Online community. In this short period they managed to gain masses in an attempt to return their army to glory. However, this glory was struck by lighting when the leadership drowned in the decision of Mustapha’s removal, amid which the Doritos Leadership was divided into two sects operating on two different Club Penguin Private Servers.
This drama came to an end when Wwebestfan, Doritos Army creator announced that the division of Doritos was not an option. Stating this, he clarified that Doritos will continue to operate on CP Online servers. In this leadership crackdown, Gingersnap was a prominent personality, as he decided to not break alliance with the Doritos and help them get through that tough time.
The Doritos Army had performed very well under the current leadership. Below is a picture of the Dorito Army’s war training which was under the leadership of Gingersnap along with others:
As we can see, the Doritos logged on to CP Online server in masses, doing the E+K Tactic and showering the glory. This was the last event that Gingersnap had attended. Following this event, Gingersnap posted this on Doritos website:
Today, a journey that has lasted around 8 years is coming to a close. I, Gingersnap am officially going to be leaving the army community.
This is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Whether or not you like me, or hate me all I know is that I have nothing but love for all of my friends that I have gathered thru my tenure in THE GREATEST ARMY OF ALL TIME. It’s incredibly hard for me to make this decision, but I think it is the right choice for me at this stage. My life right now is at a crossroads. I need to focus more on my real life rather than my online life.
I might miss the battles, the feeling of leading troops into war, the friends I have accumulated over the years, in fact I know I will miss those things dearly. I need to gather my mental health and move on from all of this.

Signing off for one last time,
Former Leader and DCP Legend
Gingersnap delivered a post filled with gratitude and grace. It must be noted that Ginger talks about mental health here and how it’s his #1 priority, like it would be for anyone else. Alongside, Ginger also recalls his memory of CP Army battles, wars, and general fun he used to have.
In an attempt to understand what he’s feeling about the retirement, we interviewed Gingersnap himself.
Interview with Gingersnap, Doritos Army Legend
Midnight: Why did you decide to retire?
Gingersnap: I decided to retire to focus more on my real- life endeavours and schoolwork. I also have begun to feel ‘burnt out’ in regards to armies with all of the developments and the length of my current tenure in this generation of DCP. I also feel like armies is starting to outgrow me and I seem to spend more time away from armies already.
Midnight: When did you join the CP Army community and DCP?
