The definition of armies. What are they?

Armies. They grow, they fall, and they finally end. Leaving no trace of their legacy behind. An army can span years, or die straight away. But the real question is: What really IS an army? 

I’m here to explain that to you.

In the dictionary, an army is described as a

  1. An organized military force equipped for fighting on land.
  2. The branch of a nation’s armed services that conducts military operations on land: “an enlisted man in the army”; “army officers”.

Is the world of so-called warfare really that? Maybe. My opinions may differ to yours. But, isn’t Club Penguin supposed to be about having fun? In a virtual world? Who remembers the first army, the Club Penguin Army. They didn’t have a site, xat or anything we have today. Oagalthorp made the first “official” army site with his army, the Army of Club Penguin. But what made it official, or did we just assume it was official?

Maybe. But we need a government to lead our way. What would there be without the government? Chaos. Total chaos. The government is lucky to have us, the underlings. And we are lucky to have it.

The very fabric of army history stretches a long way. Longer than most of us have been introduced to warfare. When you think of a Club Penguin army, what do you think of?  ACP? DW? The problem is, our community is becoming biased. The actual army community is becoming biased and one-sided. Armies were made for fun, weren’t they? Now look what’s happening on chat. Swearing, inappropriate language, racism etc. Of course, there are banning procedures. But, What has the army community evolved to?  A deluge of insufferable acts? A place where people can learn cuss words and use it? Are we making the CP Warfare population any better. No, in fact, we are making it worse. Way worse. Imagine if, our future generations start flame wars and rage at an army and attack it? What if people start hacking? All over a single loss? No. That won’t happen. Unless we cause it TO happen.

There’s another part of warfare, that makes it what we are today.

Noobs. People who have just been introduced into the world of CP warfare. Raging at them won’t help them get better will they? You must encourage them, as we were all a noob at one point of our lives. Soon enough, they will learn, and maybe, become the future leaders of our armies.  

Troops also, the people who make up an army. You can’t have an army without the soldiers. They are the body and limbs of the army. The leaders are the brain. What will the brain do without a body to lead it? Nothing, absolutely nothing. It will just sit there doing nothing. Luckily, that hardly happens. Due to our loyalty. But that will be the case.

WordPress. The main site base for an army. The thing which changed the army world. A place where we can see the latest updates, check out our ranks, see the greatest battles, and have FUN.

Tactical strategies. A thing which is relativity new to the army world. And a thing that has defined us, and made us evolve. Tactics, a thing which organized the CP army world.  Eventually, we will evolve again. And when that happens, we’ll have to see what happens.

I’m actually amazed by how long i’ve been ranting on about this subject, so ill interject a quote.

A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.

  10. And, also, please don’t put “I’m surprized how long I’ve been able to Rant on about this subject”

  11. OH, AND ONE THING, ACP Wasn’t the FIRST official CP Army. There are others which had a Forum before.

    • ACP was the first on the forums, followed by CPA on WordPress, then Romans on the forums, this post is factually correct.

  12. Other than that, Nice post.

  13. Why no news posts..

  14. Eh. I don’t believe tactics organized anything, more like got rid of actual fun snow ball fights.

  15. Got anything else to say Dale?

  16. Wow. Thanks for the constructive critism, Dale. D:

  17. Its your opinion.

    • Everyone needs Criticized. So they fix their mistakes. I lived with it. Now you do to. :3

  18. The original Club Penguin Army did have a WordPress site, which does make it the first official army. I’m not willing to get into the “who came first” fight, but whether or not ACP formally existed before some other armies (Nachos, UMA, etc.) is disputed.

    To be honest, “government” in armies has become just a really long page of things that would be wonderful if they actually did happen. Unfortunately, most leaders of armies ignore and have no regard for the constitution or nations page that they supposedly go by. Government in armies is a great concept, but the way armies function best is that of a dictatorship. In a dictatorship, the leader or leaders doesn’t need to follow a higher rule of law, such as a constitution.

    As unfortunate as it is that racism and hatred has become such a big part of armies, that’s exactly what it is. It is now part of our culture. However much we may like to police it, you’d be hard pressed to change it.

  19. Cool! Now I know the definition of an army! Where else, but CPAC?

  20. Armies:Because you have nothing better to do.

  21. Another post brought to you by CPAC trying to set the boundaries of an army farther than it should be set. It’s just a game.

    • It actually is a game. Thats why I made this post. To explain what are armies, in this virtual world.

  22. nice post

  23. Quality Post.

  24. THIS SO TRUE 😀
