KLONDIKE – CP Army Headquarters- On May 7th, the Army of the Orient Sea’s shut down after being re-opened for barely a week. What led to this unexpected closure?
The Army of the Orient Seas was created on June 16th, 2020 by Daya, Ken, and Intrinsic. Despite starting out as an AUSIA army, they gradually turned into a fun place for everyone. The army received its official status on June 21st, 2020 under CP Army Hub’s league. They achieved many things such as hitting major status in October 2020. The army joined the New Dawn Alliance created by the Doritos. However, after a series of posts exposing the Doritos’ leadership, AOS decided to withdraw from the alliance. Under the leadership of Daya, TechN9ne, and Intrinsic, the army hit the 10th spot in CP Army Hub’s Universal Top Ten. The army became well known as one of the most respected AUSIA forces in the community.
In September 2020, Intrinsic and TechN9ne stepped down from leadership and passed the torch to Aphrodite and Figgenz. On October 4th, within a month of the promotions, the army hit major in Club Penguin Army Hub. They went on to host several successful events and battles for their troops until November when the army finally shut down.
On April 19th, Darci made an announcement in the Army of Orient Sea’s Discord server, disclosing that the army is reuniting under the leadership of Myth and Darci. Members began pouring into the server, ecstatic that the army was making a return. Their revival event gained a lot of popularity. On April 30th, AOS logged on to Club Penguin Rewritten for their revival event, for what was later revealed as the final event that they would ever hold.
CP Army Headquarters reached out for an interview with Myth on the closure
What lead you guys to shut down the army?
Myth: Darci and myself were notified on Friday that we hadn’t actually gained permission from Intrinsic and Robot. We politely asked why we were told to abruptly shut down.
What are the plans now going forward with the server?
Myth: There are multiple things happening right now. All of AOS’s staff is currently in the process of creating a new army, while the AOS server is being deserted. The purpose of the AOS server now is to stay open as a hangout.
Will the army will ever make a comeback?
Myth: This is a question that will have to be brought up with Intrinsic for an actual answer. From what I’ve been told, the army doesn’t appear to ever come back.
Is there anything you’d like to add?
Myth: Thank you to everyone who helps contributed to the short-lived AOS revival. It means a lot, and even though we only lasted one week, you guys are still sticking around. Thank you once again, and thank you for the interview!
Will the Army Of Orient Seas ever splash back into the community? Let us know in the comment section below!

Amazing post! Crazy that AOS closed down already but excited to see what the staff can do with their own freedom.
