ACP History: The Birth of the ‘AUSIA’ Division

Update: The VERY first AUSIA event was hosted by Mchappy days before Flipmoo’s unscheduled debut. Check it out here.

BLIZZARD, Shamrock Bulletin Headquarters – As we march on with ACP History Week and host our Birth of the AUSIA Division themed event, the Shamrock Bulletin takes a look back on the moment that changed the course of Club Penguin army history forever.

On May 8th, 2013, the Army of Club Penguin created the first official ‘AUSIA’ division within the CP army community. In a website post from General-at-the-time Flipmoo, he announced the Australia/Asia division to be a place for those not living in the USA or UK to have their own army careers and journeys.

His goal and ambitions for the new division were straightforward, as stated in his post at the time: “I would like to make the ACP’s Australian Division the largest Australian Army that ever existed. I cannot guarantee large sizes in the beginning, as it will require a lot of time and effort for an Australian Division to grow, but I promise you I will do my best to make ACP’s Australian Division the best.” 

The very first AUSIA event took place that same day, and was an unscheduled event on a one-bar server after many hours of chat recruiting from the ACP AUSIA team. A respectable size of 9 soldiers were present, and while this is no large feat in today’s community, it was a fantastic start at the time.

Just days later, the AUSIA division held another unscheduled event and a higher size of 13 was recorded – showing already significant improvement. The following week, Flipmoo received a promotion to third-in-command and another unscheduled training was held, with again a size of 13 penguins. This time, however, no rogues were present and it consisted of solely ACP soldiers.

After a war with the Federation and numerous other unscheduled events, the ACP AUSIA division held their very first scheduled training event. The event was also hit by a bot raid, and allowed the ACP AUSIA members to fight them off with an impressive size of 22 soldiers.

After several months of wars, battles and hard work recruiting and growing the AUSIA division, ‘The Golden Day‘ arrived on September 13th, 2013. It was named as such to reflect the ACP’s largest AUSIA size at the time – a total of 56 troops on Club Penguin.

There was no doubt in the community’s eyes that the ACP AUSIA division was the strongest ever to exist, and was used for many years after as their most valuable weapon in wars. Of course, other armies began to see its value and created their own AUSIA divisions too, but none were as powerful as the ACP’s under Flipmoo, or his successors: Splasher99 and Mrtchy. The division died with the ACP’s closure in 2017…

…until September 29th, 2019, when the ACP was revived into the private server community. The first AUSIA leader, Sidie9, established the division once more with sizes of less than 10 at scheduled events, but was succeeded with current Commander-in-Chief CSY in November 2019.

Under CSY, the division knew no limits and continued to break every achievement in the book. The pinnacle of the divisions existence was the Aces of AUSIA tournament final – where the Army of CP battled the Help Force with an astonishing size of 77 penguins. This was the largest ever ACP AUSIA size recorded, to date.

The birth of the AUSIA division is a story about an army that had a single dream and managed to change the entire CP army community forever. We salute you, Slimball2007!
