CP Around The Clock: Success

Hello, everyone!

CP Around The Clock kicked off at 12:00pm (PST), on server Marshmallow, and it ended 24 hours later. This 24 hour party was outstanding! That’s right; 24 hours – straight! Who knew this was possible?

In the Summer of 2016, Daisydoo14 created CP Around The Clock for the fun of it. Also, considering it was the Summer, she acknowledged that more people would be free to take part in this event. For its first debut, the event was successful! A lot of people found it fun, which is the main objective of this event. However, 24 hours of Club Penguin is as difficult as it sounds; not every hour was fully occupied.

To celebrate New Year’s of 2017, Daisy decided bring back CPATC. It was at this one, I became more interested. I managed to reserve and hour and everyone was pumped for it. Unfortunately, this particular event didn’t go far.

Bots. And a lot of them.

Someone wanted to ruin the fun, so they deployed several bot penguins across the party – and they were almost unstoppable. I never got to host my hour because of these bots. It was so cruel of them to do this because CPATC is not your ordinary event. It takes a lot of time to prepare it. It is such a shame that one penguin can just ruin that within a matter of seconds.

So, CPATC was officially cancelled during its run.

Daisy was devastated. So was I. I tried my best to keep it going but everyone was tired of the bots. We ended up giving in which made the bots the new worst enemy to our community.

A month later, I proposed an idea to Daisy. During January, I created the So Long CP project. I was determined to revive CPATC from its plunge and I wanted to make it successful again. Daisy and I negotiated and, before long, the event was placed into my flippers. At the time, I was very excited, but the fear of bots never escaped my mind. Daisy warned me about the stress this caused her; I started to feel a bit nervous. On the other hand, I was very determined and I believed that incorporating this event into the So Long CP project would make it even better!

Two months later, CP Around The Clock made its third debut. And it blew me away.

The stress of finding just as many people as last time was higher than I anticipated and there was a lot of drama involved before the event kicked off. I took on board that every host during this event had to be someone I could trust and rely on. For CPATC to be successful, it needs dedication from the community. It costed a few friendships of mine to find the dream team for this event, and it paid off -luckily! Continue reading

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…

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

The Phone Call: Now Showing!

Hello everyone!

In celebration of my ‘Two Years’ of Club Penguin blogging, I can now present to you a fun-filled video for all of you to enjoy. Remember a month ago when I held a poll/vote on what video you would like to see next on my channel? Well, the results were in and you voted for a Club Penguin Comedy. Now, some of you may be thinking “What about the Club Penguin Documentary?”. Unfortunately, I made a blunder when counting the results and it turned out that more people wanted a Club Penguin Comedy than a documentary. However, that doesn’t mean that I am not working on one right now, right? 😉

Anyway, I have enjoyed making this video over the past month and I am very proud of what I have been able to produce. It is something totally new that I have introduced to my channel for a long time and the quality of it is much better compared to my previous uploads on my channel. Better editing, better effects, better animation and better visuals! All because of my ‘Two Years’ of blogging, I decided to step up the game and ‘wow’ you guys for all of your support that you have given me for two years. I appreciate every single one of you so thank you!

Now, just to warn you, this video is quite large; around 21 minutes long! I treated it like a comedy film instead of a video with ‘comedy sketches’. So I hope you like the concept. If you have any feedback or thoughts on the video, please leave a comment below or here!

Thank you very much for your support and I will now leave you with the video. Enjoy!
