ASCENT, Army of Club Penguin Empire – Just before the September Drop officially begins, several ACP High Command, as well as their two leaders announced that they will be retiring from their positions. What led to this sudden decision?
Note: This is a developing story, more will be added to this post as this story unfolds.
The Army of Club Penguin, one of the best armies that this community has ever seen, has gone under quite a bit of turmoil in the past few weeks. Their sizes have dropped, some staff deserted the Clovers for bigger and better things, but nothing like what happened recently could have been predicted.
In a post, which can be found HERE, CSY goes into detail about the events that have taken place amongst the clovers, dedicating that all good things must come to an end. As ACP’s longest-serving leader, just passing ACP Legend, Mchappy, states that the golden era of the army has come to an end and that the next generation will continue from here. In this post, ACP leader, Cubster announces he will be retiring with the leader who brought him in as well.
To go along with the two leaders stepping down, High Command members Shane, Robot, Kailey, Stevos, and Daniel, as well as Sanya, and Spotty, who were both Chief Officers, have decided to retire alongside their two leaders. With most of these individuals having a year in service to the ACP, carving the path of what it takes to be an ACP HCOM, the new era officially begins for them.
As stated before, the Clovers were already going through a period of rebuilding. Following their first-place finish in our first annual Project Conquest, ACP was looking stronger than ever. The sizes they were able to achieve were not seen by other armies participating in the tournament, handing them the victory was inevitable as we approached the end of the tournament. However, following the tournament, their sizes dropped drastically, dropping from first to as low as sixth on the Top Tens this summer. Following their mass drop in sizes, CSY launched what was known in ACP as Project: Reignite, where he pledged to rebuild the Clovers and get them back to what they once were. While that still may be possible, it is evident that this will not be taking place under his and Cubster’s leadership.
As stated in the post made by CSY, Cubster, and the other members of their HCOM that have announced their official retirement on August 31st of this year, no new leader has been named yet, and from our sources, we were able to gather that no new leader will be named for quite some time. The Panel of Guardians will be analyzing all existing HCOM and any new ones coming in on who will be the best fit for their next leadership. With their remaining HCOM consisting of Faith, Tia, and Chicken, any of these names could be considered for the next spot.
Only time will tell what is to come for the Clovers. As one of the longest-standing greats in the community embarks on their new journey ahead of them, it is apparent that they will have some rebuilding to do.
What do YOU think? How will ACP recover from this? What can we expect in the coming weeks from them? Be sure to let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below!
