Moment of the Month: March 2021

BLIZZARD, Shamrock Bulletin Headquarters – As April arrives, we look back on the past month and celebrate what the Army of CP staff have selected as March’s ‘Moment of the Month‘.

The Army of Club Penguin staff team recently held a vote to establish what we believed to be the single ‘Moment of the Month‘ for March 2021. This includes moments that have resulted in a significant impact within our ACP community, be that be a war, retirement or promotion. So without further ado, we present the March moment and two runner-ups. 

3. Clover Bot Shop Launched With New Roles To Collect

Words by: Sophie

Earlier this month, Commander-in-Chief CSY announced the implementation of the Clover Bot and Clover Shop, featuring an array of exciting roles. The bot, developed by the Army of Club Penguin’s very own Higher Command and Panel of Guardians, is a new feature which allows for automatic reactions at the end of each event that award the army’s currency – clovers. In addition to introducing a better system to manage our clovers, this bot marked the launch of the Clover Shop.

At the new Clover Shop, members can obtain roles under five categories. There are division roles – splitting the army into the Medics, Air Force, Artillery, Infantry, and Navy. Troops can also buy uniform upgrades. The other categories include army upgrades, future leaders (which allows troops to help organize events), and Discord upgrades. Discord upgrades can be obtained through donating to the Patreon or buying merchandise, which serve to support and keep the website running.

Despite the exciting updates, Commander-in-Chief CSY has stated that it’s not the end. Rather, he hopes that everyone will “enjoy the new system and the new things it brings” and keep a keen eye out – there’s more planned and in store, including new ways to earn clovers as part of special events. What do you think of the new shop? Are you excited for more?

Words by: Pungu

On March 7th, loyal fourth-in-commands Shane and Fatchicken88 were promoted into the Higher Command ranks, as part of the Operation: We Rise From This launch. Both had an interesting journey to this position, with Shane joining months before as a Colonel, while Fatchicken ranked all the way up from the Private rank. Their promotion was a well deserved reward, as both had showed true commitment, passion, dedication and responsibility in the Army of CP, being role models for members and staff alike.

1. Army of CP Defeat Rebel Penguin Federation In March Madness Semi-Finals

Words by: Caramel

Following their victory against the Water Vikings in the second round of the March Madness tournament, the Army of CP moved on to face the Rebel Penguin Federation next. The Rebels were unquestionably a tough foe, often placing first on the weekly Top Ten list and winning multiple tournaments throughout the past year. After a week of hard work and preparations, the two armies logged on to the CP Rewritten server Crystal to battle it out for a spot in the finals on Saturday at 2pm EST. With the Clovers bringing along 78 soldiers and the Rebels maxing 89, the battle was certainly a close and heated one.

After a long 30 minute battle and much discussion between the judges, an overtime room was announced ten minutes later at 2:40pm EST. Eventually, almost an hour after the battle had begun, the judges initially announced the results as a 2-1-1 victory in favor of the Rebel Penguin Federation. While room one was deemed a tie, the Clovers won room two with the Rebels winning both room three and the overtime room. After much debate ensued following the results, CP Army Headquarters then reviewed the battle and overturned the results the next day. The new score rested as a 2-1 victory in favor of the Army of CP with the overtime room no longer needed.

In a post written by the CP Army Headquarters, Director-in-Chief DMT explained that two of the three judges experienced lag throughout the first room, thus leading to an inaccurate conclusion. After reviewing pictures and videos, the judges re-concluded that room one was actually a win for the Army of CP, leading to the 2-1 score in favor of the Clovers. Thus, the Army of CP officially won against the Rebel Penguin Federation and moved on to the finals of the March Madness tournament. Set to face the Ice Warriors next, will the Army of CP win the trophy?
