A few days back, the Lime Green Army’s only leader, Royal Mist, announced his retirement from the army, leaving the army without a leader. How the army shall go on without a leader, will definitely be something interesting, and we are keen to know what the future holds for the Limes.
On August 13, the sole leader of the Lime Green Army, Royal Mist, made an official announcement about his departure from the army, expressing his gratitude towards his fellow staff members and the army at large. Having led the army since it was revived in May this year, Royal Mist ends his three-month-long journey of being a part of the Limes. Given his retirement, the army is currently functioning without a leader. It will certainly be interesting to see how things turn out for the army, in the future.
Royal Mist, formerly known as Chainpro joined the army community in 2013 as a private in the Dark Warriors. He quickly climbed up the ranks to receive Third in command, in the army but eventually left the Warriors to join the Golds where he served as a leader. After Golds, he joined the Army of Club Penguin, and also served as Second in command and a member of HCOM in Light Troops and Rebel Penguin Federation, respectively. Royal Mist founded his own army, the Red Rebellion in July of 2019, but closed the army, to join the Recon Federation of Club Penguin as a General. Currently, he was leading the Lime Green Army alongside Krosive, before he announced his retirement from the army.
Club Penguin Armies reached out to Royal Mist for an interview about his retirement and future plans.
What is the reason behind your retirement from the army?
I am making the respectful decision of retiring due to my alleged involvement within specific communities that others assume is “unsafe”. Greeny and I work well together, but have talked this other and we have both come to the conclusion that it would be best for me to move on from LGA.
Given that the army does not have a leader at the moment, what does the future hold for the army?
Well, I have been in talks with the administration on the next steps for LGA shortly before my retirement announcement was posted. We did not exactly come to a clear resolution but have lightly touched on the subject of LGA becoming more of a hangout server than an army itself.
Do you think you were able to execute all that you had planned for the army, during your time?
Absolutely not! My time was cut short, and I knew that my eventual retirement was coming. We have had some bad luck in regards to developing an HCOM, so much of the work was on a very few select people. I kept positive about the situation and did my very best to keep the server active and talk to all of the LGA soldiers that we had at the time… and keep them as entertained and as happy as I possibly could. Everyone in the ranks there, I deeply care about and I did not want to leave them behind–though the situation was inevitable.
What would you say has been the best thing about being a leader?
The very best thing about being a leader is being able to recruit your own soldiers, and lead them. To show them the ropes of Club Penguin Armies… and to eventually teach them what it means to be in a Club Penguin Army. It’s not all about the numbers, it’s about the positive community you build up and how you lead by example to create a dedicated team that loves you and supports you in every way.
Could you share your favorite memory or memories of the army with me, if it’s not too personal?
The memes… the good times we’ve all had… and the fact that all of us were laughing our asses off when we screwed up in one of our first battles. Although we looked pretty bad in one of these battles, the events leading up to this were so funny to us. Turns out Greeny was leading in the #main channel, while I was leading in the #battle-orders channel! This is what I enjoyed about LGA, we did not “sweat” over Club Penguin as other armies seem to do… but we all just had a great time with each other. I enjoyed my time here.
Do you plan to come back any time in the future?
I do not plan to come back to LGA. I have plans that the community has yet to know about, it will certainly be a treat. Going back to LGA, I won’t speak on behalf of Greeny as this is his creation… but I personally don’t see another LGA generation being formed in the future at this time.
Although Royal Mist has retired from the leadership, he has faith that the Lime Green Army will continue to go on strong and wishes the best for them. From Club Penguin Armies, we wish him all the best, in all his future endeavors.
