    TERRIBLE NEWS EVERYONE!

    Post by Dylan on Tue Jan 31, 2017 10:17 pm

    Firstly Brexit, then Orange Hitler came to power....

    AND NOW THIS!

    CLUB PENGUIN IS SHUTTING DOWN!

    Now obviously, this isn't as heartbreaking to me as it would be if I was still 11 years old, and living in 2008; however, I think we can all agree that we owe a lot to this game, and it changed our childhoods, hopefully, for the better.

    We spent days on it: farming coins, occasionally buying membership, completing secret missions to stop Herbert (I think that was his name) the polar bear, owning puffles, trying to tip the iceberg, getting a black belt in the Dojo, trying to find Rockhopper, meeting Watex!, meeting Billybob or rSnail or the other mods, and a lot of other stuff that we may try to forget.

    And even though they sold their soul to Disney and commercialized it beyond recognition, we still made wordpress blogs and went on chatrooms, and created forums to discuss and share our experience with the game.

    AND it is the single thing that led us all the this forum almost NINE years ago now; talking to complete strangers from all around the world. Linking the UK, to Canada, to New Zealand, to the USA all because we once played Club Penguin, and found our way to this forum... and nobody can change that.

    Club Penguin and the CPIgloo Forums will always be a part of your lives, there will always be a certain nostalgia ascribed to it, and don't forget you it, because I never will. It's made you what you are today.

    And, as always, waddle on...

    For those who wish to carry on playing after the end, then there is a private server dedicated to it, and they give free membership to everyone who plays. I FINALLY HAVE THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY HAT

    I love that they created that mechanic; the perfect sendoff to a generation of kids who played it. I'll have to go on and get the jackhammer out.

    I tell you what, it's shitty contributions like that that led to the downfall of this forum.

    EDIT (03/07/17) - I just noticed you changed the scrolling announcement at the top of the page. I disapprove.
