June has been a month to remember. With a World War taking place, changes in leadership, and retirements, within the community, the month has been a witness to multiple happenings.
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 June 2023. This includes moments that have resulted in a significant impact on the community as a whole.
5. CPA and CPAB organize a Pride Parade

On June 10, Club Penguin Armies and Club Penguin Army Battleground hosted the third annual Pride Parade. Over nine armies joined this year’s festivities, including the Army of Club Penguin, Dark Pirates, Help Force, Napalm Corps, Penguins of Madagascar, People’s Imperial Confederation, Rebel Penguin Federation and Water Vikings. The day was declared as a ceasefire from war, which all of the armies involved in World War IX agreed with. Around 83 people from the participating armies showed up to celebrate this occasion on Battleground. Every army led a few tactics to start off the Pride Parade before forming a rainbow in the Iceberg wherein each army represented a different color of the rainbow. The parade was followed by a fashion show hosted by DrQueen and the community committee. Despite an ongoing world war, many armies came together to acknowledge this event, which made it all the more special and enjoyable.

2. RPF loses all their land due to an accidental treaty violation

In the aftermath of World War IX, the Rebel Penguin Federation faced a devastating blow as they ceded their entire empire to the armies of the Sapphire Concordat. The conclusion of the war came in the form of a treaty, but it was marred by accusations leveled against the Rebels. Sapphire Concordat claimed that the Rebels had breached the terms of the war by releasing a website post stating that the Blue Sunset Alliance emerged victorious in all battles fought. Promptly, the Club Penguin Armies’ administration intervened, seeking to mediate between the two sides.
During the ensuing discussions, the Rebels acknowledged their mistake, emphasizing that the mention of the Blue Sunset Alliance’s triumph was an accident. Ultimately, the Sapphire Concordat insisted on upholding the treaty’s stipulations. Thus, the breach resulted in the Rebels forfeiting all their acquired territory, as dictated by the war term explicitly prohibiting either side from claiming victory or referencing the war score. This incident swiftly became one of the most controversial episodes of World War IX, eliciting a mixed response from the army community.

At the time of writing this post, World War IX had 29 votes in the running to become the number one moment from June 2023. Initially destined to be a three-on-one alliance war against the Army of Club Penguin turned into one of the largest conflicts seen since World War Rewritten. Blue Sunset Alliance made up of Elite Guardians, Rebel Penguins, and Water Vikings teamed up to take on the expanding Clovers, citing issues taken with the “egotistical leader” known as Calgocubs21. Before even an official battle could begin, the Clovers and Vikings were raiding each others’ events. Once the administration stepped in to declare the Blue Sunset Alliance’s terms as unfair, Calgocubs21 promised retaliation. This retaliation culminated in the Clovers joining the Sapphire Concordat Alliance that had formed to fight against the Dark Vikings.
From there, it was off to the races with endless battles. Some days saw as many as seven battles covering World War IX. For the first time since its creation, the Club Penguin Armies’ map was completely at war. After a staggering 32 battles, all of which the Sapphire Concordat lost, a treaty was finally signed following the force treaties of Sapphire Concordat armies such as Napalm Corps and People’s Imperial Confederation. What seemed to be a peaceful end to an extremely tiring conflict then was flipped on its head when not even 24 hours later, a slip-up by the Rebels caused them to lose their entire nation due to treaty terms. In the end, the Sapphire Concordat which lost every single battle ended up winning the most amount of land from the conflict. Thus, capping the conflict off and making it, arguably, the least successful World War campaign by the initial Blue Sunset aggressor.
As another month comes to an end, the question arises about what July shall hold for the army community. Will it be a month with little to no activity or will it be another month that is full of surprises? What are the top moments in June for you, and why are they so?
