November has been full of surprises in the army community. As we near the end of another year, let’s look at how November has been, with the top five moments of this month.
Like how it is done every month, the Club Penguin Armies staff team came together and hosted an internal vote for what we believed to be the ‘Top Five Moments’ of November 2022. This includes moments that have resulted in a significant impact on the community as a whole whether that be a hiatus, retirement, scandal, or a spicy war.
5. Double Deck the Halls Battle: Four Army Showdown
Written by: Mchappy
Tournaments are usually hosted by community accepted websites like our very own, but it’s always a little special when an army decides to host a little community magic themselves. On November 26, the Army of Club Penguin hosted a holiday-themed battle known as the Double Deck the Halls. The battle witnessed four armies put into pairs as they battled throughout three different rooms for 30 minutes, and was inspired by a tournament the aforementioned army attempted hosting all the way back in 2008. As for teams, the Clovers and the Dark Vikings became the Santa Army whereas the Help Force and Mercenaries turned into Evergreen Trees. In the end, the host army’s duo ended up winning the Double Deck the Halls. The battle saw over 50 members come together.

On November 2, the Templars declared war on the Water Vikings. In their war declaration post, the Knights stated that they were tired of the Vikings’ constant disrespect of the Templars’ troops, their leaders, and their name, and hence, wanted to take action against the same. Soon after their declaration, the Vikings deemed the Knights’ war terms as invalid and redeclared war on the Templars with their own war terms, which the Templars then accepted. In a war that lasted for two days resulting in two battles, both armies agreed to a cessation treaty after, with the war between them being announced as a tie. As sudden as the initial declaration was, the war came to an abrupt end as well, resulting in peace once again between the Templars and the Water Vikings.

On November 13, the Water Vikings announced that they would be closing temporarily, citing staff burnout and a general “slow-down in the community as a whole” as reasons. Aaronstone, one of the army’s former leaders, stated that the army lost a lot of its steam after the Legends Cup and the war against the Templars, but is intending to open its gates once again in January 2023, pertaining to a fresh start. The army is continuing to remain active as a gaming and hangout server for the time being but has terminated its activities and responsibilities as an army, until next year.
