Snowstorm, CP Army Network HQ – As 2021 draws to a close, the board of CP Army Network is proud to introduce the 2021 End Of The Year Awards to commemorate all the achievements made by individuals and armies last year.
2021 has been quite an eventful year for the CPA community – from the end of Flash to numerous wars and community run tournaments, we’ve seen it all. Through these awards, CPAN seeks to honor and highlight the achievements of individuals and armies who’ve made an impact on the community.
The Voting Process
Traditionally, CPA awards are given on the basis of a community wide vote and staying true to this spirit, this year too, CPAN will be holding a community wide vote for all the award categories shown below. The voting will use a public ballot via a Google Form. At the end of the voting period, the nominee(s) with the highest number of votes will be declared as the winner.
2021 End Of The Year Awards
Every year, a select few individuals go above and beyond their call of duty and leave a lasting impact on the community. Their efforts not only helped their army achieve success but also helped shape the community for the better. Thereby, these individuals have ascended to the pinnacle of the army community. Who do you think had the most impactful career, thereby proving themselves to be the most achieved, in 2021?
Best Major Army
Major armies are known for their sizes and ability to influence CPA politics and conflicts, and their ability to win major tournaments. This highly sought after award is given to the major army which has managed to stand out from its peers by virtue of their success, consistency and impact of the community! Which army do you think exemplifies the best of CPA in 2021?
- Army of Club Penguin*
- Ice Warriors
- Help Force
- Rebel Penguin Federation
- Water Vikings
* ACP was a major army for over 6 months of 2021 and as a result we’re considering them to be a major army for the awards
Best Small/Medium Army
While smaller than their Major army counterparts, S/M armies are still serious contenders in their own right. Many of our nominees became or came close to becoming Major Armies albeit only for a short while during the summer. Their sudden rise, especially in the summer of 2021, saw the emergence of new conflicts and struggles for territories on the CPAN map and made a name for themselves. Which of these armies do you think deserve to be called the best S/M army?
- Fire Warriors
- Golden Troops
- People’s Imperial Confederation
- Red Ravagers
- Secret Service
- Silver Empire
- Smart Penguins
- Special Weapons and Tactics
The hallmark of a great leader is the ability to put the interest of their army ahead of their own. Such an individual leads by example, empathize with their troops, and inspire them to work hard for the betterment of their army. A great leader has the ability to revolutionize their army and help it reach its fullest potential, thereby propelling it to great heights. The following individuals have gone above and beyond for their respective armies and ensured their success in 2021. Which one of them do you think has had the most significant impact on their army?
