We Don’t March To The Beat Of The Drums, We Hear Maracas..

Authors, feel free to add your piece to this post as well.

As I sit here, minutes after the closure of a place I called home for many years, I am not quite sure how to feel. 

It has been years since I have been involved in this community, so I shouldn’t care much, right? Wrong. This community gave me, it gave US so much. All of the laughs, the fights, the wins, the losses, the list could go on forever. But this community gave us all one valuable thing, memories. No matter who you are, what you did, who you fought for, you did it together, as a team, and made countless memories along the way. 

I can honestly say that the Nacho Army has changed my life beyond measure. We’ve made countless friends, countless enemies, countless impacts on the lives of hundreds if not thousands of kids. 

In the grand scheme of it all, this community has impacted an insane amount of people. And look how much we’ve grown. Starting from a simple snowball fight in the plains of early Club Penguin, to the creation of websites and chatboxes, and then on to the creation of our own news website and nation states. This community truly was something special, and I am more than proud to say I was able to be a part of it for so long and witness some of the coolest things you could imagine. 

As I wrap up this post, it’s really hard to fathom words to type into this text box, but one thing continuously comes to mind:

Thank you

You all have changed my life, for the better. I can honestly say that I am glad I “wasted” all these years on this dumb game, because it brought me some of the most integral and impacted memories of my childhood and honestly, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

So as we depart from this game, and go our separate ways in life, promise me to never forget this game, and all of the memories that came along with it, because like it or not, we ALL fell in love with it at one point. Even if we were apart of different armies, we were all apart of ONE community, and that was Club Penguin. 

So for the final time Nachos, 

Stay Cheezy

Aka Edit: Hey guys, only a few more minutes until I go to drill, and I am sure I will leave a post of my own around Sunday or so, but I am thankful of all the moments I spent with you all here playing this goofy ass game where we bombed with jokes and emotes and stood in lines for hours on end.

The world of CP armies never seemed like it would stop spinning, but now that is has its little wonder everyone in the community is wondering “Well, what do we do now?”

As CP armies taught us when we were younger how to interact with others and take up positions and listen to the people above you, now we are all put into the same position from the greatest legends to the troop that joined yesterday. We’re all our own leaders in the end, and now its up to us how we want to move forward with our armies of friends beside us.

To be honest I did not think CP would last this long, and I thought CP would have died out during my 5 year hiatus from 2010-2015. After I came back for a couple months in 2015-the very beginning of 2016, I thought for sure that armies would have lost all their userbase and soon after CP would close. It was great coming on last night after trying my hardest to sleep and not being able to that I could capture the last few moments of the community that I had always been apart of. We were united, not against an army, but against Disney itself, hoping by some miracle that we’d be able to stop time and allow us just a few more minutes on this game with our friends from years past.

Obviously, it didn’t work out, but when did that ever stop us from trying in the past? How many times did the community fall into depression, how many armies started up and failed, how many big armies suddenly closed their doors? Many of them did and some stayed closed forever. The majority, however, kept coming back and back again even stronger than before.

The point being here is that none of these people have died, even if we’re moving on to other things. We’re all still going to be Nachos at the end of the day, and everyone I have served with from 2006 on the forums to 2017 at the end of Club Penguin is still near and dear to my heart. I remember all of you and even if a good number of you hated me at some point in the past (or still do now o.O), I am happy to tell you that every experience here was special to me.

I have to get going now, see you all on Sunday, friends.

Pony Edit: I’m gonna keep it short since my goodbyes can be found here, but I just want you all to know I’m so proud of how much this army has grown over the past two months, and how we stepped up to do the best we could. As for the vets/retirees/whatever we’re calling you now and the Legends, I was really happy to see everyone come together in the very end and destroy Breeze. I’m going to miss all of you so much! May the winds be ever in your favor!
