Nacho’s Luchadors are using a commonly employed NFT project feature, known as factions, but not in the way your average NFT project might.


  • There are 10 factions
  • Trainers (NFT holders) will be able to share training facilities with other trainers who have Luchadors in the same faction
  • You can train Luchadors faster at better facilities if a faction member lets you join
  • In matches, tag teams made of Luchadors from the same faction get a battle advantage
  • There are rewards for collecting certain amounts of Luchadors per faction

So, what are factions?

Factions are teams, clans or groups of people who come together. Central to the professional wrestling world and its plethora of storylines, factions are all about camaraderie and rivalries. In MMA, groups of fighters train at the same gym and use each other to enhance their growth as fighters, even though they are not actually teammates; they could see each other in the octagon.

We love the idea of factions. It creates allegiances and community strengthened by opposition and rivalry.

Why have factions?

We included factions because wrestling, just like crypto, DeFi and the world of NFTs, are all about community.

By creating the opportunity for sub-communities, you have users of different types, experience levels and wallet sizes there to help each other out with something shared to gain—something that doesn’t necessarily benefit everyone, just your faction.

It also gives us the chance to create an identity and backstory for groups of Luchadors that the community can begin to commandeer and author on their own.

How factions work

There are 10 factions in Nacho’s Luchadors ecosystem.

Each faction has a name and a logo, and every Luchador is part of one of the factions. Their kits, or uniforms, signal which they belong to.

Sharing training facilities is one of the biggest advantages to factions.

Some trainers will level up all their training facilities quickly, and some will not. With every increase in level, a gym station increases its Luchador training capacity and the rate of training that particular skill.

  • A SPEED level 1 can accommodate one Luchador and trains at a level 1 pace
  • At level 2, it can accommodate two Luchadors and trains at an increased pace

For example, if a trainer’s STRENGTH station is at level 7 but they only have five Luchadors, they might choose to offer it to fellow members of the faction currently training at that station. That means a fellow trainer owning only a level 1 STRENGTH gym station could get benefits of a level 7 while it’s shared.

A level 1 STRENGTH station can accommodate one Luchador to train at a time

This means factions can help their own teammates overall to grow the entirety of the faction. While every Luchador is in a race to eat, grow and train for glory, entire factions can be responsible for a movement that advances it over all others.

But won’t I have Luchadors from different factions?

Maybe you will, maybe you won’t. It might make the most sense to own Luchadors from multiple factions and prioritize the growth of them all, but it might make sense to power-up as many Luchs from the same faction as you can.

Incentives encourage trainers to think about their faction strategy

How are factions balanced?

Well, they aren’t. Not exactly.

Each of the 10 factions will be relatively proportionate. The algorithm that runs the script creating Luchadors will choose kits representing each faction in general balance, but it won’t be perfect. And the traits, rarities and characteristics of each won’t be balanced either. Just like real teams and clans.
