What If Downloadable Clients Were the Only Cppses We Could Use?

KLONDIKE, CP Army Headquarters – The third edition of What If? analyzes what would occur if downloadable clients became the only CPPS’s available for use. For the purposes of this article, downloadable clients refer to the CPPS creator website.  How would such a change affect the army community?

Disclaimer: This post contains the views of the writer as an individual, and not of the CP Army Headquarters as a whole. 

Firstly, why would such a change occur? This could happen as a result of Club Penguin Rewritten and Super Club Penguin shutting down. Disney is well known for forcing CPPS servers to shut down. There’s nothing in the way of Disney shutting down other CPPSes like CPR either. This would force Club Penguin armies to use an alternative source. Disney shutting down a private CPPS such as CPPS creator is far less likely. 

One of the obvious impacts of this change would involve a major decline in users. The CPPS creator can only run on Windows and Mac software. The client will not work on other outlets such as Chromebook. Therefore, those who don’t own a Windows or Mac pc would not be able to participate in any of the events. As a result, armies would have smaller maxes. While major armies may survive loss, it would be a potential death-knell for small armies.

A CPPS Creator Server

This change would also impact the way armies were ran. Armies would likely use CPPS Creator to their advantage and create their own private servers. Many armies did this when Flash died at the end of 2020. This would allow armies to hold events privately without being disturbed. Furthermore, it would allow them to customize their server to however they see fit. They would be able to use various commands to spawn items. As a result, armies would have more variety in their uniform selection. In terms of battles, there might be a few servers created specifically for that purpose. 

Finally, there’s the question of server maps. Since each army would have their own server, armies would possibly want to invade each others servers. Therefore, armies can declare war on enemy private servers. If the army declaring such a war would win, the losing army would have to give up their server. This would make the stakes higher as armies could lose a server they spent much time creating. Armies that lose their server would have to make a new one. 

This change in armies would have its advantages and disadvantages. While the stakes would be higher for invasions/wars, and the numbers of users would be limited, it would allow for a more customizable experience for the armies involved.

Do you believe this could have gone another way? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below!
