2020: What Has Happened So Far?

ALASKA, CP Army Hub Headquarters – Since we have now passed the half-way mark of the current year, let’s take a look at the amazing journey the army community has endured these past 6 months. From the establishment of CP Army Media, the many wars, the return of veterans due to a worldwide pandemic, and finally the unification of the community under the Army Hub.

January

After a busy month in December of 2019, January saw a drop in activity from the community. As most of us returned to school and work after a long winter break, most of us did not see a bright future in CPA until the summer came along. Little did we know this would be the start of a great year in the community.

Overall, the army community has most certainly grown in all aspects since the start of the year. Regardless of the numerous wars and arisen conflicts that we have seen, we all manage to get together and become an amazing community in the CP Army Hub. With the CP Army Hub team having more fun stored for the future, it will be wonderful to see how stronger the new era of Club Penguin Armies will get over the rest of the year, and beyond.
