Camp Penguin – Highlights

Hello, everyone!

Camp Penguin was an interesting experience! A lot of you came along, which was fantastic to see, and I was able to connect with most of you really well. I think that the party was a definite success, so thank you for turning up and making memories with me and the team! In this post, I want to briefly discuss my favourite moments and share a few pictures with you all. Luckily, I also managed to record the event as well but this video will be coming later.

Firstly, I hope you all enjoyed Camp Penguin. There were no bots, except for a couple of mischievous penguins towards the beginning. As soon as I logged on, I couldn’t help but smile; all of the penguins were gathered around the campfire and it made the atmosphere cosy and friendly – which was what the event was aspiring to be! I waddled over to join you all and then I got my whistle out to get everyone’s attention. It felt awesome to use it! We all started off with a couple of stories and we even got to know penguins more. Even though this failed slightly, we “all said something about ourselves”. Yeah, it didn’t got perfectly but I was laughing.

Another key moment was the story time at the Forest. I took some inspiration from a recent ‘Megg Meet-up’ and told everyone to get in a line. The idea of it was to create a random and wacky story by inputting one word – each – into the story. I cannot remember it all but I remember there being an “apron ice cream strawberry”. Please, don’t ask – it was the magic of the chat filter! I actually really enjoyed this and had a laugh with a few of you.

Moreover, there was the marshmallow roast which went swimmingly. Okay, we burnt our marshmallows but that is only because we were getting to know each other too much! I asked everyone what their favourite things were; these questions ranged from parties to puffles. It was terrific to see the contrast in out views but there were some wow moments when some of us said the same thing. Now I know that someone else who misses the Medieval Kingdom… Continue reading

Camp Penguin

Hello, everyone!

Camp Penguin is recruiting campers – next week – on Saturday, 18th February!

Have you ever been camping on Club Penguin? Perhaps you have several years ago when Camp Penguin made its first debut. Now, Camp Penguin is returning to the island so that the community can bond with each other, over the campfire, at the cove. It is a time for marshmallow roasting and evening swims. It is a time for boding.

So Long CP’s next event will be a calm one. Even though we are a compassionate and supportive community, we actually do not know much about each other. So, before Club Penguin ends, that needs to change. I think it is an appropriate time to get to know each other more and the remedy to this is Camp Penguin.

So, what is this event going to achieve?

Camp Penguin will be a calm and relaxing experience that will take place at the Cove and Forest of Club Penguin. Hopefully, penguins will be able to make more friends and even become better friends with penguins they already know. Friends are vital in life because it means we can find someone to rely on, lean on and lead on. After Club Penguin closes its doors next month, us penguins will still be here so we need to make sure that everyone has friends, regardless of the future.

What can penguins get up to at Camp Penguin?

The greatest thing about this event is that it only happens within 2 rooms on Club Penguin. But within these 2 rooms, a lot can happen! For example, you can have a jolly swim with your buddies, at the Cove; roast marshmallows on the campfire; share spooky stories – and hunt for the Hermit. These are only a few of the possibilities but it is entirely up to you on how you make friends and socialise at Camp Penguin. You can let your imagination run wild!

Where can I find all of the details for this event?

Camp Penguin has its own invitation that invites every single penguin in the Club Penguin community (except bots). Feel free to share the invitation on social media and with your penguin pals. You can also find relevant information about Camp Penguin within tweets that are tagged: #SoLongCP and #CampPenguin. You can also use these yourself to promote the event so we can bond with as many penguins as possible. The invitation for this event is below.

This event is going to be a truly unique – but simple – experience for all of you penguins to enjoy. I hope you are willing to register at Camp Penguin next weekend!

The Penguin Playoffs: Highlights

Hello, everyone!

Yesterday, there was history.

The Penguin Playoffs was attacked by bots; everything started to crumble within the first 10 minutes. But, the community was resilient – we pushed forward until we defeated the bots and ended up having an amazing time! I found it very stressful. I was well aware that this event could be invaded by bots. I feared that it was going to be ruined by bots. Luckily, that didn’t happen. The Penguin Playoffs suffered some dark moments, but the ending was so delightful and the aim of the event was achieved: we played games and we had fun!

The Penguin Playoffs began at the Ice Rink. Well, sort of. I had reports saying that there was an army of bots, sinisterly, waiting there. As soon as I heard the news, my heart froze. The So Long CP Kickoff did not suffer any bot invasions – we were lucky! Unfortunately, I already got the impression that this So Long CP event was going to be a lot more stressful than I anticipated.

Anyway, I logged on and found the majority of guests waiting at the Snow Forts. It was bot free…for a bit. Then, they came storming in! Everyone was shocked and annoyed. It turned out that the event needed to take a deviation.

So, there were no teams (as planned), no schedule, and no fun. I was so frustrated. Anyway, I tried to evade the bots as hard as I could by telling everyone to go to different parts of the island, but that didn’t work; the bots were feasting off my tweets! Before long, I realised that the bots could not interrupt the actual mini-games! So, whilst at the Ski Hill, I told people to play games while they could and it worked – to an extent.

It just got very laggy.

It wasn’t a surprise, really. Plus, no one could really see me saying anything because the bots constantly spammed jokes. I tried to move away again; this time, to the Puffle Lodge. I took into consideration that the Find Four stations were spread across two rooms, so I was hoping that some penguins could innocently play a game of Find Four without disturbances. Unfortunately, the bots were smart enough to switch between the Mystery Attic and the Puffle Lodge. Also, the lag was even worse when playing Find Four. By then, I ran out of solutions, so I kept struggling onwards.

Next, it was time for some reckless Mancala!

Of course, the bots followed us. I was actually surprised to witness how patient a lot of the guests were; they stuck with me despite the bot invasion! I only managed to play one game of Mancala before I couldn’t handle the pressure. From here, the party started to fall apart rapidly.

Some players were spread across the island. I found some stowaways at the Snow Forts! Some were still at the Ice Rink, and a lot of them in the Club Penguin Times Office. At that moment, I knew that the party was collapsing, and – soon – everyone was going to leave. Continue reading

The Penguin Playoffs 

Hello, everyone!

As I mentioned in my previous post, the So Long CP Kickoff went very well! In this post, I will be announcing the next event in this project. If you have read the title, you may have an idea of what the event is called and what it is about. I am excited to reveal the next event which is called…

The Penguin Playoffs Logo.png

Before Game Over, we must Game On!

This event is all about mini-games! Club Penguin is full of them and we need to make the most of them before the game ends on March 29th.

Some of the greatest things about Club Penguin are the old and nostalgic games within it. Uniting the community together – for an event like this – will remind us all of the glory days! The Penguin Playoffs will ensure that every penguin will have fun, no matter how competitive you are. Instead of an intense tournament, it’s more like a celebration of the fantastic mini-games on Club Penguin. Nevertheless, this won’t stop you from having your own little competitions with the event!

If you are interested in attending, the event will be starting at the Ice Rink. For about 10 minutes, we will be hanging out there (playing ice hockey if you really feel like it) and getting sort into two groups. The So Long CP hosts will be doing this and the reason for it is because we want as many penguins to play – as possible! Therefore, splitting the attendees into two large groups will mean that we can play more games simultaneously with each other.

In other words…

There are going to be two teams. These are: #TeamAstro and #TeamIce. These names will not have much significance during the event but they will be important for penguins who get lost. The hosts of each team will be tweeting out live room updates during the event so make sure you keep an eye on these hashtags.

Once the teams have been sorted at the Ice Rink, the hosts will direct you to your first game station. There are 4 game stations in total!

#TeamAstro will begin the playoffs at the Puffle Lodge, playing Find Four. #TeamIce will begin the playoffs at the Dance Club, playing Dance Contest. The main goal is to play with many of your friends or acquaintances! There will be 15 minutes allowed at each game pinguinosledracer-recordstation, before it is time to move around the carousel. #TeamAstro will then be able to Sled Race, on Ski Hill, whilst #TeamIce move onto Card-Jitsu! That includes Fire, Water and Snow too!

After another 15 minutes have passed, the two teams will switch with each other. So, #TeamAstro goes to the Dance Club and #TeamIce will go to the Puffle Lodge. If you work out the math, it means that there will be a total 60 minutes of game time! After the whole process is complete, both teams will then reunite at the Ice Rink, and then the event will finish there. As you can tell, this event requires a lot of moving around but it will be done with ease! More importantly, it means that we can play more games (without having to wait) at the same time!

So, that is the main plan we have for the event! The So Long CP team have spent a while trying to plan this so it should be very fun! If you are planning on attending the event, feel free to use the hashtags: #GameOn and #SoLongCP – yourself – to promote the event and share it with your friends.

I think it will be smart of me to actually let you know when this event will be happening! The event will take place on…

Saturday, 11th February, 2:00 PM (PST) on server Marshmallow. 

I have also made an invitation for the event, which you will likely be seeing – frequently – on Twitter. Again, we would appreciate your support if you shared these invitations out so that we can get as many penguins, involved, as possible.

CP Around The Clock

Hello, everyone!

The So Long CP project is just around the corner, so it is probably an appropriate time for me to discuss one of the big events the So Long CP team have planned for this project. I am very excited for this one to arrive within the next couple of months. It happens to be very time-consuming to organise, but I believe that it is possible to make this event happen because we have a hard-working team.

The event is called ‘CP Around The Clock‘.

CP Around The Clock was founded by a kind penguin in our community called Daisy. Luckily, I have been able to ask Daisy some questions about the event and why it is now part of the So Long CP project. Hopefully, this short interview will answer some of your questions about the event.

What is CP Around The Clock?

“CP Around The Clock is an event where penguins get together for 24 straight hours. The change of hosts takes place every hour, so everyone has a chance to participate!”

Why did you create this event?

“I thought it’d be a fun experiment, to see if people could get together for 24 hours. I created it in the summer of 2016, and there was a lot of free time on people’s hands.”

Do you think that it was successful last Summer?

“Well, sort of. Rosytilly’s hour was packed, but several hours (especially in the middle of the night) were really dead. Even though not every hour was perfect, I’d say yes, it was a success, because it was really well-received by the community.”

What happened to CP Around The Clock on New Year’s Eve?

“One word: Bots. They just kept crashing it, and it was more stressful than fun. We tried a few things, but nothing seemed to work. I ended up cancelling it because it just wasn’t worth it.”

Why did you agree to integrate this event within So Long CP?

“Well, to be honest, I wasn’t planning on owning this event any more or doing it alone. I gave it to you because it was too much stress for me. Besides, I thought (if you could make it work better than I did last time XD) it’d be a good addition to So Long CP!”

Do you think that CP Around The Clock will be a success this time?

“You know, I’m not totally sure. I hope so, of course, but what with the bots, there’s no way to be sure. But I hope the community gets involved and the bots stay away, and most importantly, that everyone has fun!”

I thank Daisy very much for giving up her own time to answer these questions. You can follow Daisy on Twitter and check out her testimonial for the project. Continue reading
