Editorial: Why I Believe the Light Troops are The Greatest

This post is just my opinion on why I believe the Light Troops is the greatest army to ever exist.

Recently I have been talking with former Light Troops members and legends. I’ve also had talks with my good friend, Roberto. We were talking about the achievements the Light Troops had and how we’re underrated for our success due to allegations of cheating by failed leaders in the community. For the remainder of this post I’ll be explaining why I believe the Light Troops deserves the title as The Greatest Army to Exist.

The Yellow War Machine 

It is no secret that the Light Troops operated at best during war time. In fact, this was a contributing factor to our reputation as being one of the most disliked armies – we declared war on everyone. We did not care who you were or what you stood for, if you messed with us then you expect to be invaded by the Light Troops. We have had many enemies, our legendary rival being the ACP. When no one dared to challenge the ACP during their prime, the Light Troops stepped out and fought whoever was at top. The LT – ACP war in the beginning of 2012 will always be one of my favourites despite the fact it ended in a Light Troops defeat. Why? Because the Light Troops demonstrated their true power of being a potential army for CPAC’s #1 spot. During this time ACP was reigned as the #1 army and were seen as an unstoppable force – until the Light Troops challenged them. We battled the ACP and had many victories. In the end, the ”unstoppable” ACP had to resort to forming an alliance with the Nachos, Dark Warriors and Ice Warriors in order to save themselves from being completely annihilated by the Light Troops.

After that war we would continue to have wars with the ACP to seek revenge, and we would always come out victorious. After that war the ACP fell and it would take them months to recover. We would engage in numerous other wars with other large armies, such as the Dark Warriors, HSA, RPF, Nachos, Army Republic, you name it. No army was safe from the advancement of the Light Troops army. In 2013 we engaged with another war with the ACP and came out victorious. In 2014 we went to war with the Dark Warriors twice – in the summer and in the winter. At the time the Dark Warriors were considered #1 by CPAC, and no other army dared challenge them. Only the Light Troops will challenge DW’s throne as #1. In 2015 we went to war with numerous armies, especially after our rise due to my discovery of bot recruiting. In the summer of 2015 we went to war with the RPF, I led the Light Troops alone and managed to defeat Elmikey, Silverburg, and all their RPF veterans. In 2016 we returned for the Easter break and took away the Night Warrior’s #1 spot on CPAC for our entire 4 weeks of being alive, and of course, declared war on them – outnumbering them in every battle.

The Light Troops will always be remembered for their blood thirst for war and challenging any army that claims to be number one. We did not hide behind ”peace treaties” as we believed this was only for the weak.

Recruiting Masters (revolutionaries)

The Light Troops have used many recruiting methods during our existence. From chat recruiting, to auto typing, to CPPS advertisements, to bot recruiting. Roberto, Ioioluk, and myself included, have all been inducted to CPAC’s legend page and characterised as ”revolutionaries”. One of the main reason for this is because of our recruiting methods. We always thought outside the box. Ioioluk was the best at chat recruiting, he would chat recruit key LT figures like Josh, Billy, DrMatt, Jose, Ana, Kappnkrunch, etc. Roberto was also very skilled in chat recruiting, and was a major contributor to LT’s success during the legendary ACP war with his recruiting abilities. I also used chat recruiting during my time in the Pirates. It was not until summer 2015 that I began to bot recruit. I noticed armies using bot scripts to raid other armies, and I thought this was just ridiculous and a waste of a script. During this time I was auto typing, so I figured it would be much easier to use bots to auto type on CP rather than using your laptop. I contacted Blizzard880 (he was the bot raider at the time) and he told me about Rile5 and his script (I was already using Rile5 since 2013). I contacted my friends in Camelogical (Adam & Astro) and they made me an activator and an upgraded script perfect for recruiting. This would revolutionise armies as later on armies would begin to use scripts to recruit, but none were ever as successful as me or the Light Troops. Armies were limited in their resources, such as not having an activator and having a different script than me. I had the help of Camelogical to provide me with the latest scripts in order to recruit efficiently for the Light Troops. The army community were surprised to see the power of bot recruiting as I led the Light Troops throughout the summer of 2015 with hardly any owners or moderators – just CP recruits and users from Astro’s CPPS, Virtual Penguin. With the introduction of bot recruiting, the community was able to rise their armies to new heights, but not as big as the Light Troops – the founders of bot recruiting. And thanks to Roberto, we were the first army to make a working partnership between a CPPS, oldCP. This partnership helped the Light Troops greatly during our summer 2014 Golden Age under the leadership of me and Roberto.

The Biggest Army

The Light Troops have always been remembered for being a large army, and that is due to the amount of golden ages we’ve had. Last year, in 2016, I managed to lead the Light Troops to over 100 twice on Easter and the day after. I didn’t even realise this until Epic Master counted the troops in the pictures. We managed to circle the Town and also circled the Ice Berg with a few lock outs in random rooms. We managed to get over 100 people on our chat, with about 50+ viewing the site live with over 5,000 views on that day alone. I even recorded the battle, which you can view by clicking HERE. With the sizes we were getting, we didn’t want to bore the troops with stupid training sessions like the ACP. We challenged every army. I have made multiple videos of the Light Troops battling other armies during Easter 2016. We even declared war on the Night Warriors and crushed them, go to our archives and look at April 2016. Whenever the Light Troops returned we would always become #1 and were the biggest army – no one would even dare challenge us. Of course, there were the doubters, the people who never tried bot recruiting or even led a decent army, that would accuse us of mutli logging. Which was funny, considering I made a lot of posts of our site stats. I bot recruited every day, which would bring in a lot of recruits. Honestly, it wasn’t that hard. When people logged on Club Penguin they would see our bots recruiting. If you looked at our chat it will filled with Club Penguin recruits asking for when the battle starts and their memberships. I even recorded our battles, you can clearly see that the Light Troops were 100% legit. There has been NO ”proof” of the Light Troops cheating after we began bot recruiting in May 2015. We won the Spring Tournament in April 2015 against the Nachos due to our massive sizes from bot recruiting and our sponsorship from oldCP. The Light Troops would challenge every single army with our massive sizes, and we would come out victorious. I remember last year, December 2016, I had an entire week of invading army capitals because I was bored and there wasn’t any real challenge for the great Light Troops.

LOYALTY

The Light Troops had one of the most loyal owners and moderators ever, especially during my reign. Most armies are notorious for hiring army hoppers – but not the Light Troops. I admit, we have had our share of army hoppers (Spi, DrMatt), but overall the most loyal people you’ll meet will be in the Light Troops. Why? Because the owners in the Light Troops were recruited by either myself, Roberto, or Ioioluk. For example, look at my owner squad: Epic Master, Tobercold, Jessie, Revan. These guys were the best owners I have ever had, especially Epic Master & Tobercold. These guys are loyal to the Light Troops to he bone. Whenever the Light Troops, they are there ready to serve. Even Ioioluk’s inner circle are still around, you may know them as ”Bloodline”. Throughout the years they have stuck together and still talk, because in the Light Troops we don’t see each other as just normal users, we’re friends, we develop a strong bond that can last a long time.

Many people may mock Epic Master for his loyalty to me, but if I were him I wouldn’t worry. In 2012 many people mocked me because I ”worshipped” Ioioluk. In 2012 Ioioluk was considered a great leader by many and the Light Troops were powerful under him. He was very charismatic – he wasn’t politically correct like other army leaders and spoke out a lot against CPAC and other armies. This drew me in to him and the Light Troops. During this time I was leading the Pirates, who were considered a SMAC army. I was not known and was considered a noob by many. I was constantly teased because I would get the Pirates to support the Light Troops whenever I can. People would say I ”licked Ioio’s ass” and that I worshipped him. Fast forward to now – I am  CPAC legend, LT legend, and led the Light Troops, Ioioluk’s creation, to sizes Ioioluk could never do. Epic Master was an awesome owner, one of the best in this community. He would be a great leader, but he’s too much of a bitch boy that goes to bed at 8pm on a Friday night (I love you Epic <3)

* LEGENDS *

Is it no surprise that the three greatest Light Troops leaders (Ioioluk, Roberto, Waterkid101) are all CPAC legends? We have revolutionised armies through our leadership in this glorious army. Each one of us led the Light Troops to a Golden Age that crushed every other army. I do not think there’s any other army that has all their leaders as CPAC legends. We are known as ”The Big Three” or ”LT’s Godfathers” because we were the only real leaders the Light Troops ever had. Many people thought that the Light Troops could not rise without Ioioluk or Roberto, but I proved them wrong with my 3 year leadership of the Light Troops. I have led the Light Troops to bigger sizes Ioioluk & Roberto has ever led them – by myself. The three of us will always be remembered for our work in the Light Troops, as we are responsible for making this army The Greatest. Yes, armies like RPF, UMA, ACP, Nachos and the Ice Warriors may have reached amazing sizes during Club Penguin’s golden age (pre 2012), however the Light Troops did the IMPOSSIBLE and got over 100+ on Club Penguin (TWICE) during Club Penguin’s worst years ever, and we will continue to leave a mark in this community.

Love or hate us, we all know the Light Troops are The Greatest.

  1. Glory to the light!

  2. You’re overestimating too much.

  3. You defeated the RPF in Summer 2015? The way I recall it is that you guys won one battle while RPF won around 20, and then midway through the war you shut the Light Troops down. Then when I claimed RPF were the reason LT shut down, you revived LT only for LT to start doing abysmal so you shut them down again.

    Light Troops are a great army, that can’t really be disputed. However, the problem LT has is consistency. They’ll be alive for a few weeks and then they’ll just shut down for months. The ability to have an army stay alive and remain a solid world power is something that the Light Troops have never seemed to possess, at least during my time in armies.

    It’s what separates the Light Troops from legendary armies like the ACP, Nachos and RPF, and it’s why perhaps that the Light Troops will never have the same namesake as these armies.

    • RPF was not the reason LT shut down. After leading the Light Troops for 3 months I was completely bored and fed up with the bullshit with RPF. We clearly outnumbered you in numerous battles yet you still claimed victory. Check LT’s archives in late June/July 2015, you would see our victorious.

      And as for the consistency; that’s not true. Yes, armies like the ACP have been more consistent than the Light Troops, but why does that matter? Why should ACP be classified as greater because they’re still alive? The ACP struggles to get a mere 25 on Club Penguin, yet whenever the Light Troops return we demonstrate our recruiting abilities and able to form an army bigger than any current army easily. If anything, that just boosts the reason why we’re the greatest.

      I didn’t have time to be leading the Light Troops consistently throughout 2016, hence why I only revived them during holiday seasons (except the summer). However, I would prefer people to remember the Light Troops as an army that can be revived at any time and beat the #1 army and challenge everyone instead of being an army that maxes 10 in events throughout the whole year. If you look at LT’s archive for 2016, throughout the year we were in Golden Ages. It doesn’t matter if it only lasted for a month, we still proved our point that we’re a force that cannot be stopped, not even after death.

      • You contradicted yourself on saying RPF was not the reason LT shut down because you just explained how RPF’s “bullshit” caused you to shut down LT.

        I think it means a lot if an army can survive the tests of time. It’s shocking to think that the Army of Club Penguin has been around for over 10 years, and it’s because ACP has always had a constant stream of people who want to carry on the army. The Light Troops isn’t much of an army because it relies on you, Waterkid. In that Summer War we had last year there were many occasions where you couldn’t come to battles and I would face off against the other LT leaders and RPF would obliterate LT every time.

        You could say the same thing about RPF revolving around Elmikey or maybe even RPF revolving around me but there has been several occasions where Elmikey and I have not been around and RPF has achieved great sizes and great feats to the point where we’ve been shocked. RPF has won the Christmas Chaos tournament without us, RPF has hit sizes of 50+ without us, and much more. The Light Troops don’t have people willing to carry on the army, and the Light Troops do not have enough strength without you as their leader, which is why you guys constantly shut down.

        You’re a great leader so you make the Light Troops very strong, but without you the Light Troops are a mediocre army, and you tend to not be around a lot. The Light Troops don’t have troops who care about the army, or owners/leaders who are able to lead efficiently in your absence, all the Light Troops have is the Bloodline. RPF has these things, and even though perhaps the Nachos and ACP don’t, the people within these armies have the will to keep their armies alive and they have people who can continue on that will.

        • It was a minor factor as to why LT shut down, not the overall reason.

          No army has any true ”new” generation to lead their army to a new age, the only example I can think of is me with the Light Troops (taking it over from Ioio and Roberto) and xxToysoldier with the Dark Warriors. You can say the exact same thing with the RPF, you and Elmikey are still leading them. All armies have some sort of control by former legends and leaders, like ACP’s retiree group and the Nachos.

          Also, Andrew’s Drew Crew & Jester led the Light Troops to a Golden Age in Winter 2014 without the aid of me or any other LT legends.

  4. glory, glory to the light

  5. YELLOW SNOW

  6. So then bring back LT.

  7. LT rank easily behind the IW, ACP and Nachos and there’s no debating that.
