Club Penguin Online Rebrands To Club Penguin Offline

KLONDIKE, CP Army Media Headquarters — Amidst Disney’s rampage on the Club Penguin Private Servers, Club Penguin Online’s closure occurred weeks before it was originally planned.

Club Penguin was a game that Disney bought in 2007, which shut down officially in March 2017. Though, some fan-based servers popped up which are known as “Private Servers”. Club Penguin Online was one of the biggest Private Servers to exist, which was established in 2018. The owners of the server have been the target of significant accusations for some time.

After several YouTube videos, as well as public revolt occurring throughout these past months, Club Penguin Online came to the attention of Disney. Popular YouTubers such as Kavos, SomeOrdinaryGamers raised their voices and called out the shady things which were happening behind the scenes.

On 14th May 2020, CPO posted an administration statement (click here for the post on that), in which they stated that the game will be shutting down by the end of the month. Though, opposite to what had been announced, the game’s domain was removed/blacklisted by their providers yesterday. Here’s what we found while we were investigating the issue.

With over 8 million registered users, there was considerable confusion about what had happened to the game with so many players. It didn’t take much time for the news to spread out before global news organizations such as the BBC & The Verge published their own reports on the incident.

As you can see, the so-called “rumor” proved to be true when the news websites stated that Club Penguin Online’s Owner – Riley/Waterkid was arrested. This came as a shock to those active users and armies who were under the dilemma about the recent stuff going on. It was proven that CPO Staff were trying to hide things from the community and that the game was a smokescreen behind all the dirty work being done.

Club Penguin Online quickly posted a message on their website in which they stated:

Yes, they still don’t accept it.

More than two years have passed since these things started to come out. There have been several dramas, bans, and other incidents to suppress the voice of the community against these issues. It might be hard to believe that your favorite CPPS is no more, but ask yourself if these actions from the individuals were justified, you’ll find your sorrow getting replaced with anger. We all know that Disney has been sending DMCA strikes to more private servers and that the future of the army community is therefore at risk. We here at CP Army Media will keep you updated regarding every detail which happens around this topic. Until then, stay safe, stay alert, and stay united.
