Four armies have declared war on the Special Weapons and Tactics amidst growing community scrutiny towards the morality of their leaders.
On August 23, the Templars, Ice Warriors, Water Vikings, and Help Force simultaneously declared war on SWAT. The flurry of war posts contained severe and concerning allegations regarding SWAT’s conduct, ranging from permitting people to talk about child sexual exploitation imagery without consequence, disrespecting veterans and allies, using “racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic language,” and “harboring people” who support pedophiles.
In the Water Vikings’ declaration post, the leaders expressed criticism towards SWAT’s hiring of Greeny, creator and former leader of the Lime Green Army. The Vikings condemned Greeny as he “willingly tried to ally himself and his army with…a group of pedophiles,” referring to the Limes’ alleged alliance attempt with the infamous Recon Federation of Club Penguin.
In the Templars’ war declaration post, leaders accused SWAT of allowing suspicious figures in the army for size gain “at the expense of their dignity, morality and the mental health of their past and current staff.” The post also mentioned that the leaders failed to take action against individuals who made others uncomfortable, such as members who publically discussed child exploitation imagery.
Meanwhile, the Ice Warriors’ post stated that SWAT “attempted to stab us in the back” and that high-ranking SWAT members have used racist, discriminatory, and offensive language, something that the Ice Warriors believe “is our responsibility as a community to ensure such action does not go unpunished.” In a similar trend, the Help Force’s post claimed that SWAT has “unnecessarily provoked them” and made many “groundless accusations,” calling for their retaliation.
Currently, the war looks to allow allies, a term shared by all four declarations. Other terms include the typical no server transfers, no merging, and no doxxing guidelines. The battles will be judged by Club Penguin Armies’ partner organization, Club Penguin Army Judges.
As clarified by the army leaders, these simultaneous declarations do not indicate that the four have formed an official group alliance but rather that all four armies have come together in condemnation of SWAT. However, Help Force and Water Vikings have since formed an independent alliance, meaning that the Ice Warriors, Help Force, and Water Vikings are now respectively allied with each other, albeit not as a joint alliance. Additionally, the Rebel Penguin Federation has acknowledged SWAT’s wrongdoings and also broken its alliance with them; their remaining allies are the Ice Warriors and Water Vikings.
Club Penguin Armies reached out to leaders of the respective armies for a statement regarding this war. As of the publication of this post, SWAT has yet to provide a response.
Xing and Cabin, Templars leaders: Simply speaking it was an effort by the current Major armies to stop the defiling of a community that needs not to be haunted by its past horrors yet again by people who only have regard for sizes and not for human emotion/dignity. They deserve this.
DrQueen, Ice Warriors leader: Ice Warriors will not support any army in this community who is using racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic language and continues to sweep up all their wrongs-doings under the rug. It is our responsibility as a community to ensure such action does not go unpunished.
P.S: Lukey, You got declared on by IW twice within the span of two months. Feeling ok buddy?
Aaronstone, Water Vikings leader: Essentially WV the past month has been very anti RFCP, Greeny shadow leads SWAT now after WV and Templars got LGA Leaders banned from the league. WV released a post saying that we will not tolerate these individuals and we are keeping our word. We also dont like how theyve been treating their vets, people we call friends, they had to leave SWAT because they didnt feel welcome there anymore in an army they helped sustain.
Snowy, Help Force leader: Help Force will no longer tolerate SWAT’s disrespect, and we will fight until justice has been served.
Although summer is slowing down, it appears that activity may be ramping up instead. What will be the ultimate outcome of this war? Will SWAT be able to handle the onslaught of invasions currently being scheduled against them, and how will they respond to the severe accusations in these posts?
