Original Russian text Transliteration English translation Armorsmith's version
Широка страна моя родная,

Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!

Я другой такой страны не знаю,

Где так вольно дышит человек.


От Москвы до самых до окраин,

С южных гор до северных морей

Человек проходит, как хозяин

Необъятной Родины своей.


Всюду жизнь привольно и широко,

Точно Волга полная, течёт.

Молодым везде у нас дорога,

Старикам везде у нас почёт.


Широка страна моя родная,

Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!

Я другой такой страны не знаю,

Где так вольно дышит человек.


Наши нивы глазом не обшаришь,

Не упомнишь наших городов,

Наше слово гордое - товарищ -

Нам дороже всех красивых слов.


С этим словом мы повсюду дома.

Нет для нас ни чёрных, ни цветных.

Это слово каждому знакомо,

С ним везде находим мы родных.


Широка страна моя родная,

Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!

Я другой такой страны не знаю,

Где так вольно дышит человек.


Над страной весенний ветер веет.

С каждым днём все радостнее жить,

И никто на свете не умеет

Лучше нас смеяться и любить.


Но сурово брови мы насупим,

Если враг захочет нас сломать,

Как невесту, Родину мы любим,

Бережём, как ласковую мать.


Широка страна моя родная,

Много в ней лесов, полей и рек!

Я другой такой страны не знаю,

Где так вольно дышит человек.

Shiroka strana moya rodnaya,

Mnogo v ney lesov, poley i rek!

Ya drugoy takoy strany ne znayu,

Gdye tak vol'no dyshit chelovyek.


Ot Moskvy do samykh do okrain,

S yuznykh gor do severnykh morey

Chelovyek prohodit, kak hozyain

Neobyatnoy Rodiny svoyey.


Vsyudu zhizn' privol'no i shiroko,

Tochno Volga polnaya, techyot.

Molodym vezdye u nas doroga,

Starikam vezdye u nas pochyot.


Shiroka strana moya rodnaya,

Mnogo v ney lesov, poley i rek!

Ya drugoy takoy strany ne znayu,

Gdye tak vol'no dyshit chelovyek.


Nashi nivy glazom ne obsharish'

Ne upomnish' nashikh gorodov,

Nashe slovo gordoye - tovarisch -

Nam dorozhye vsyekh krasivykh slov.


S etim slovom my povsyudu doma.

Nyet dlya nas ni chyornykh, ni tsvetnykh.

Eto slovo kazhdomu znakomo,

S nim vezdye nahodim my rodnykh.


Shiroka strana moya rodnaya,

Mnogo v ney lesov, poley i rek!

Ya drugoy takoy strany ne znayu,

Gdye tak vol'no dyshit chelovyek.


Nad stranoy vesenniy veter veyet.

S kazhdym dnyom vsye radostneye zhit,

I nikto na svetye ne umyeyet

Luchshe nas smeyatsya i lyubit.


No surovo brovi my nasupim,

Yesli vrag zahochet nas slomat',

Kak nevestu, Rodinu my lyubim,

Berezhyom, kak laskovuyu mat'.


Shiroka strana moya rodnaya,

Mnogo v ney lesov, poley i rek!

Ya drugoy takoy strany ne znayu,

Gdye tak vol'no dyshit chelovyek.

Wide is my Motherland,

Of her many forests, fields, and rivers!

I know of no other such country

Where a man can breathe so freely.


From Moscow to the borders,

From the southern mountains to the northern seas

A man stands as a master

Over his vast Motherland.


Throughout life, and freely and widely,

Just like the Volga flows.

The youth are always dear to us,

The old are always honored by us.


Wide is my Motherland,

Of her many forests, fields, and rivers!

I know of no other such country

Where a man can breathe so freely.


Our fields are too wide for the eyes,

Our cities are too many to remember,

Our proud word - comrade -

To us is higher than all fine words.


With this word everywhere we feel at home.

For us there are no "blacks" or "coloreds".

This word is familiar to everyone,

With it we always find friends.


Wide is my Motherland,

Of her many forests, fields, and rivers!

I know of no other such country

Where a man can breathe so freely.


Over the country, the spring breeze is blowing.

Every day life becomes more joyful,

And no one on earth knows better

Than us how to laugh and love.


But our brows shall frown sternly

If an enemy attempts to break us.

As a bride, we love our Motherland,

We protect her, as a gentle mother.


Wide is my Motherland,

Of her many forests, fields, and rivers!

I know of no other such country

Where a man can breathe so freely.

Wide is my Armorstate

Of many lava casts, bases and withers

I know of no other such nation

Where a man can breath in such freedom.


From Spawn to the world border

From the southern canal to Armorland

Here a man stands as a caretaker

Infront of his vast server


Throughout life, and freely and widely,

Just as the mighty great Armorsmith,

Here the followers can worship their god,

while the fools roleplay at Spawn.


Wide is my Armorstate

Of many lava casts, bases and withers

I know of no other such nation

Where a man can breath in such freedom.


Our ruins will fill your eyes with splendour

And our cities will never fade from your memory.

Our proud title: "Faggot"

For us is the greatest honour of all.


With this title, we all live as a family

Under Armorsmith's great wings

This title is familiar to everyone

With it, we find family everywhere.


Wide is my Armorstate

Of many lava casts, bases and withers

I know of no other such nation

Where a man can breath in such freedom.


Armorstate is our home

We love it and adore it

And no one on 2b2t could know

How much we love Armorsmith's Followers.


But our eyes should quickly turn to anger

If a YouTuber joins 2b2t.

As a bride, we love our server.

We should protect it as our gentle mother.


Wide is my Armorstate

Of many lava casts, bases and withers

I know of no other such nation

Where a man can breath in such freedom.

History

The Valley of Armorsmith on the -4444 Highway
Armorsmith is a famous lagfag and shitposter. One day, he talked with a player named uglykids and suggested the idea of a group worshipping him. He wanted to call this faction "The Soviet Reunion". Due to the lack of time, he couldn't create this faction. But he did design a symbol for it, the hammer and sickle.

Armorsmith would then use this symbol in every single base/ build he made, including the Armorland End corner base, and his Carolina lag machine series.[1][2]

A few months later, Armorsmith would team up with househousehouse1 and P529 to create his third major lag machine and ruin Christmas. While building the lag machine, on December 22 2017 he decided that it was time to finally create a Discord server of players who will worship him. He invited all kinds of players to the group. It was the first group on 2b2t to worship a person.

Some of the elite members of the group, who showed their dedication, were trusted by Armorsmith. These players were invited to special group bases. A unique example of such a group base is 200 150. This base was constructed just less than 200 blocks away from 0,0 and it lasted for 4 months.[3] It was built below a lavacast and was griefed later on by the SpawnMasons, who held a meeting inside. FPS lagging, which was the earliest form of chunk banning, was brought to 2b2t by Armorsmith's Followers after the grief of their Spawn base, and so were the massive lava casts at the End Spawn.

The group made an outpost on the April 1st map of 2018. During the AntVenom invasion, the group grew exponentially, and tens of players who joined built their own Armorsmith bases, hoping to receive some of the unique items the group had access to. It was during this era that the hammer and sickle was spammed all over Spawn, and chat was flooded with Armorsmith propaganda thanks to the group's bots. The group also opened a website and a merchandise store. Armorsmith map art was made as well. Metrez, who was a group member, discovered one of the first Donkey dupes in 2018.

In late 2018, The group decided to leave its mark at Spawn by building the Wrath of Armorsmith. IHackedWalmart would supply the builders with ender chests, while Metrez and Pheanom worked on the Wrath. This became their new HQ. The wrath had blocks mined from the original Wrath Outpost.[4] It was finished in 2018 and griefed throughout the Sixth Incursion by Incursion members following a battle at the Great Spawn Wall.

The idea of a "Democratic Country" with an anthem and a president was attractive to some new players, and through the name of Armorstate, the faction could obtain more members. They built larger bases as time went by, including Space 2k2k, a large base at the End Dimension's coordinates of 2k2k. Players from the Peacekeepers and Infrared Republic found refuge in Armorsmith's Followers.

In 2018 the group built the first Spawn Sky Symbol, a concept that was applied by other factions such as the SpawnMasons and the Emperium.[5] In 2019 several bases were built such as Hellsmith in the nether and Armorpark.[6][7] One of the most notable 2018 landmarks by Armorsmith's Followers was the Valley of Armorsmith, that had tens of thousands of hammers and sickles in it, an amount that would even rival the number of VoCo vortex logos at Spawn.[8] The group also built a base at the coordinates that appear on the MOTD of 2b2t which was named the MOTD palace.

The group would continue to build more bases in 2021. Armorsmith decided to send his members to rebuild the Terminal Base and make it the official recruitment base of the group.[9] After its griefing the group proceeded with rebuilding the ruins of an old base farther away from Spawn and expanding it. They gave it the name "Unnamed Base", and it contained several unique structures including a special version of the Drain within the base as well as pixel arts featuring the logos of international luxury brands such as "Louis Vuitton" and "Gucci". It also had several glitched nether portals.[10]

In late 2021 the group released a method to lag 2b2t through Operation Black Hole, an effort to priority strip players by making them enter unescapable chunks with falling sand that caused the server to crash whenever someone loaded it.

Community Projects

Armorsmith Spawn Sanctuary
The AntVenom invasion brought hundreds of players to the group, making it one of the largest on 2b2t. Ever since the group's creation, they were involved in community drama and were directly responsible for server events. The group griefed the first base of the Astral Order. The group would create their own subreddit, merch shirts, social media accounts, a skin and other branches, such as the OG Names of 2b2t group run by Armorsmith and Caviyaz. This resulted in many signed books by OG accounts being spread around the server. The group would also declare the independence of a new country on 2b2t with the name of Armorstate, giving their members a feeling of democracy. A president used to be elected once every 6 months to run the group, however, his authorities were limited.

The group served as an enemy of the 6th incursion while they were building the Great Spawn Wall, they killed members of the incursion at spawn and they spammed thousands of withers on the wall. Their efforts heavily damaged the effectiveness of the wall in keeping new players trapped at spawn. This resulted in the first Anti-Incursion movement on 2b2t. Armorsmith himself would make Fit combat log in one of their battles. During the 7th Incursion, the group mainly focused on attacking its trench crew, resulting in the deaths of many players from the Incursion and the complete failure of the lava wall.

Many projects by the group resulted in the creations of several factions. In 2019, Armorsmith brought chezhead back to 2b2t in an attempt to create a union of factions under his leadership. This plan failed but the outcome was the revival of the Facepunch Republic. Another notable example is the attempt to control several groups in the excuse of a fake Incursion to construct a water cube. Armorsmith used jared2013 to create an "8th Incursion".[11] This Incursion resulted in the creation of the Infinity Incursion.

In 2019, thanks to one of the leaders of the group, the YouTuber Big Man Tyrone, Armorsmith got in contact with the largest content creators in Israel and worked with them on making 2b2t viral in that country. This resulted in an "Israeli Incursion" on 2b2t with its outcome being the foundation of several Israeli PvP groups and the server being popular in Russia thanks to Russian-Israelis who shared content by Israeli YouTubers.

In 2020, Armorsmith's Followers experimented with bedrock breaking methods and improved them to construct a hammer and sickle made out of bedrock at the End Dimension, which was later removed. It allowed the creation of a new faction on 2b2t, the Anti Bedrock Society, which was one of the main forces which contributed to the deletion of the Bedrock Comet at Ziggy Town.

In 2021 Armorsmith revived the Anti Bedrock Society and proceeded with deleting illegaly placed structures on the server with his group.

Since 2019, Armorsmith's Followers has been responsible for the New 2b2t History Timeline, the most successful alternative to Sato86's timeline, which is updated every year. The Armorsmith's Followers Discord server is one of the largest on 2b2t, with over 3500 members and counting, partly due to their role as contributors to the high queue numbers on the server thanks to their collaboration with content creators.

Relations

Armorsmith's Followers is a neutral group in its nature, they have no official opinion on any group on 2b2t, and they never bothered to establish positive nor negative relations with other groups, as their sole purpose is to worship Armorsmith.

Despite this, because of their activities within the server, the group was involved in conflicts with almost every single faction in the 2b2t community.
