[PHILOSOPHY] Excessive Politicization: A Boon Or A Curse?

“Power without morality leads to abuse, and freedom without morality leads to depravity.”

ALASKA, CP Army Hub Headquarters, Lucifer’s Office – Over the years, we built this game into what it is today. Together as players, we made the rules, we hired the judges, and we ran the media, with only our roles as the sole differentiator. Yet, we created something that goes far beyond serving the purpose of a game: we lost the element of joy which we replaced with excessive politicization. One might argue that they get joy from what exists today, but was that really what played a key role in this community’s genesis? We began adopting moral guidelines, as well as political theories, so I took some time off to deliberate not just with you, but also with myself on how the community evolved to become more realistic, and whether or not that is a good thing.

[EDITORIAL] Why We Killed Club Penguin

ALASKA, CP Army Hub Headquarters Zamb’s Desk DDOSing, doxing, impersonation, scamming, you name it. Since their creation and overwhelming rise in popularity, Club Penguin Armies have been heavily censored and disregarded by CP’s administration for their blatant ignorance of the game’s rules. Disney envisioned Club Penguin to be a game for children to network safely and meet new friends, but was their aspiration dominated by the cynical army community?

[Editorial] Meme Armies and their Integrity

Please note: The following post is an editorial and contains the writer’s personal opinion. It does not represent the views of CPAL as a whole.

 

SLUSHY, Cookie Monster’s office – Many new armies have popped up recently, some being real armies, that want to work hard and progress in terms of land, while others are “meme” armies, which are not entirely focused on land. These armies seem more interested in spreading a movement or a joke or are just created as a fun thing to do. I, as a creator and leader of a “meme” army that never became official, found that recruiting for them was more laborious and that they could spread a joke. Still, the base principle of the army was not to take the land, which made running the army itself more difficult. If meme armies don’t want land, what do they want? Well, I looked into it and found some surprising answers. Continue reading for more!

Editorial: Is This The Golden Age Of CP Armies?

Disclaimer: The views written and put across in this post do not represent the views of CP Army Media as a whole, and are purely those of the author.

KLONDIKE, CP Army Media HQ – As it was four years ago, Disney now threatens the continuation of the platforms in which we operate on and the very existence of our community. Despite this growing concern, there is an argument to say that this is the strongest our community has ever been. In this post I discuss and contest this assertion, drawing on several key indicators of success within CP Armies.
