The Future of Armies Lies in the Four Fates

With the end of Club Penguin only a few weeks away, we need to look at all the options we have and think carefully about which one we want. In this post, that’s what I’ll be doing when I explore the Four Fates.

Useful Terms

  • Club Penguin sphere: All games related to Club Penguin regarded collectively, including Club Penguin Island and Club Penguin Private Servers.
  • Armexit: The push to leave the Club Penguin sphere.
  • Reaper: Someone who thinks the Army Community should fade into oblivion after Club Penguin closes.
    • Records Reaper: Someone who thinks the Army Community should fade into oblivion after Club Penguin closes, but that Army news sites should remain open to preserve Army history.
    • Forgetful Reaper: Someone who thinks the Army Community should fade into oblivion after Club Penguin closes, and that news sites should be shut down as well.
  • Pilgrim: Someone who thinks the Army Community should move to a different game, whether inside or outside the Club Penguin sphere.
    • Club Penguin Pilgrim: Someone who thinks the Army Community should remain alive, but also within the Club Penguin sphere.
    • Rockhopper Pilgrim: Someone who thinks the Army Community should move outside the Club Penguin sphere.
      • NationStates Pilgrim: Someone who thinks the Army Community should move to the game NationStates.
      • Roblox Pilgrim: Someone who thinks the Army Community should move to the game Roblox.
      • Minecraft Pilgrim: Someone who thinks the Army Community should move to the game Minecraft.

The First Fate: In this fate, the Forgetful Reapers get their way. The Army Community dies along with Club Penguin, and all the news sites associated with Armies get closed along with it. Anyone who was part of the Army Community leaves it behind as a part of their life that is now over, a part they will never get back. Everyone says goodbye to the Army Community; everyone forgets about it.

The Second Fate: In this fate, the Records Reapers get their way. The Army Community dies along with Club Penguin, but the news sites associated with Armies stay open to preserve all the good memories. Anyone who was part of the Army Community leaves it behind as a part of their life that is now over, a part they will never get back. Everyone says goodbye to the Army Community, but may occasionally check the news sites due to nostalgia.

The Third Fate: In this fate, the Club Penguin Pilgrims get their way. The Army Community moves to CPPSes after Club Penguin closes. What happens will most likely be a replay of Allagi’s story. There is an instant culture clash, and Club Penguin Armies are unwelcome. Due to the crackdown of CPPS staff, cheating Armies dominate. Armies change for the worst, and their spamming tactics may change to fantasy violence tactics to ease the crackdown of CPPS staff. The performance of Armies dwindle over time.

The Fourth Fate: In this fate, the Rockhopper Pilgrims get their way. Depending on the game, many things could happen. Armies could flourish and be accepted into a community that thinks like them. Armies could suffer severe reductions in sizes if the game is only accepted on certain computers and has to be downloaded or paid for, of which all three factors apply to Minecraft, for example. But, chances are if Armies move to a different game, they will be far better off than they are now.

So, what do YOU think? Which fate do you think we should follow? Are my predictions accurate?

  1. this would be a lot easier to read if you didn’t coin a shit ton of useless terms right at the start and use them throughout the entire thing

    • Had I not wrote this, this post would have been easier to read, as well.

  2. Although the terms can be confusing for some, I felt that this post accurately illustrated the possible options armies will take after the 29th.

    Personally, I feel the armies will split and move onto their own fields, which will ultimately lead to the shrinkage of people willing to stay in the Club Penguin field, to of which will lead to the end of the community.
    Although CPI and CPPS may have potential in delaying this process, I feel as if this is the end.

    Good post.

    • Thanks! That’s an interesting prediction you made; I feel like that could be the Fifth Fate.

  3. I really like this post, Snow. This post really shows how sad it is for Club Penguin to end it on this way, and that it will bring us into tears. It also shatters in our heart, but l do believe that we all have our own opinions on this matter whenever it is time. Club Penguin was my childhood memories ever since their first creation back in 2005. I remember when Club Penguin want’s to become so popular during that time of middle 2010ish, so that they can talk to Disney about making the game more popular, the population was going up very quickly. That is why Billybob and Happy77 had this idea. But l really don’t get why they want to do this. l don’t get why Club Penguin decides to shut down and go to Club Penguin Island’s sake. Keep it up Snow. I felt sorry for all the negative thoughts l have against/towards you..

  4. Very good post.
    I’m with terms Records Reaper and Rockhopper Pilgrim (Roblox).

    • Thanks! Records Reaper and Rockhopper Pilgrim contradict each other though. Do you mean you want to leave the Club Penguin sphere and keep the news sites open? I would find it perplexing if Sammie or the Blue Brothers closed it, considering the need for a news site, and creating a new news site would most likely harm views.

      • Yeah, left CP sphere but save CPAC as a museum.

  5. If this community goes to minecraft theres gonna be abuse by admins, disputes over who gets to own the server(s), people who are good that are constantly called cheaters, people who are cheating with clients like vape who wont be caught.

    Everyone in this community give or take is a snake and they will just abuse/cheat to get there way (seen here with multilogging and abusing cpac for personal agendas)

    • Just because there’s some idiots that do bad things and make the community look stupid does not mean everyone “give or take” is the same. You should be more careful with your wording my friend.

      • True, however Minecraft would not be ideal.

        • Anything other than a Club Penguin platform is not ideal or logical.

          • That’s overly generalized. NationStates, for example, punishes cheaters and discourages cheating. In contrast, CPPSes reward cheaters, and encourage cheating.

  6. Club Penguin Rewritten

    The CPR Guys say their fine with CP Armies in it, but DO NOT ADVERTISE ON CPR. Which, I will recruit people over @Twitter.

    BanditNation Forever

    • Well the problem is CPPSes make cheating much, much easier.

  7. This post doesn’t seem to include any logical positive outcomes, such as us not acting like complete idiots when trying to establish a new home, and being diplomatic about our individual army causes and overall purpose of the community. Not every CPPS should be expected to turn us away, because that is unproven and inconclusive. If we play our cards right and don’t do anything to piss off CPPS’, things can easily go our way and things can work out. I’m shocked that this post did not include this as one of the fates.

    • CPPSes will most likely turn us away, though. Their servers are usually not able to handle all the people that would log on for battles and such. We’d probably crash the servers every time we had a battle.

    • Let’s be realistic; it’s highly unlikely that people will be diplomatic. Over time, the number of addicts and no-lifers in our community has risen in significant proportion to the amount of genuine, decent people. Multilogging has become increasingly common over the past 3-4 years, and unfortunately a lot of individuals who are in a position of influence are too immature to make a difference. It’s sad, but I don’t think moving to CPPS will work out.

      • That’s under the assumption that no one can make anything happen.

        • I guess you’re right. It’s better to be optimistic in this case than to be pessimistic. There are still a few people out there who can lead the way and pave a better future. It’s just a matter of whether or not they take the steps to make it happen.

          • It would be easier, however, outside of the Club Penguin sphere.

  8. actually theres an app for pc’s called bluestacks which lets u download play store – app store applications on pc.

  9. The thing I don’t get is why some people can’t just let go of this community, just let it die and stop trying to find alternative ways to make it work. The community has been on a downward spiral for a while now and it’s way too far gone to try and better things. RIP

    • Hope is not lost. We’ve been on a downward spiral because not only does our host make cheating possible and relatively easy, but we are an anarchy, so there’s no one to stop it.

    • Hope is not lost. Not only does Club Penguin make cheating possible and relatively easy, but we are an anarchy, so there is no one to stop it. CPPSes will make cheating even easier. Therefore, we have to switch to a platform that not only makes cheating hard, but punishes cheaters, and that would be NationStates.

  10. I think this is an interesting post. Personally, I think CP armies are a wonderful thing, but their time is up. I would however like CPAC to stay up and hopefully some day other people will read about our past and be inspired to create their own online communities. Just because CP Armies are gone though, does not mean members of the community cannot decide to stay in touch and play other games together. CP armies will be gone, but the friendships and memories we made playing the game as kids does not have to go.

    • There are more options, so if we enjoy what we do, I see no reason to end it.

      • You have to keep in mind. The community we grew up with are CLUB PENGUIN Armies. With club penguin ending, and most of us outgrowing the community, it’s time. All good things must come to an end, and cp armies are no exception. Like I said, just because people decide to switch games doesn’t mean the community is going to follow. CP armies are dead. If people want to start anew, that’s their choice.

        • Well NationStates has its own added pizzazz; it’s played mostly by older people. All things must end, sure, but it can also be viewed as a new beginning – a ragnarok.

  11. nice fanfiction

    • nice fancomment

  12. I think it’s just too unique to move anywhere else. Also, who would even delete the news sites and army sites? Probably not many. Fate 2 seems more predictable.
