Ask The Administration: “What is your stance on banning armies from the league?”

ALASKA, CP Army Hub Headquarters – Executive Producer Max, the Army Hub’s rendition of Aunt Arctic, answers your burning questions.

How does CPAH view the ending of Adobe Flash Player?

Dear Reader,

The short answer is: we don’t know just yet! Adobe Flash Player is discontinuing in December, which is obviously a huge hurdle for this community to overcome. But we are not without hope: CP Rewritten are of course trialing their HTML5 plugin right now, and we will of course encourage armies to continue on that. In addition, other platforms like SubZero are working on a HTML5 version of their games. Flen and the CP Armies team don’t have any plans for a HTML5 version of the game, but of course the future is uncertain so nothing is set in stone.

With love, Max

How is Event Quality calculated?

Dear Reader,

The Event Quality score is determined by the number and nature of the events an army holds each week. For each invasion and/or battle (not including division battles), 4 points are awarded. For any other type of event (training, rogue, etc.), 2.5 points are awarded. The Crimson Guardians holding 2 battles and 3 training sessions would therefore see them accumulate a total of 15.5.

How do armies come up with a name and theme, and what different ways are there to go about this?

Dear Reader,

An interesting question! A common trend in the army community is for a Club Penguin related word to precede an army-related word. If that didn’t make sense (don’t worry – I’m confusing myself as I type this), I offer some examples: Ice Warriors, Hot Sauce Army, Ice Vikings. ‘Troops’ and ‘Warriors’ are two very popular words in army-naming.

Many armies have gone with something solely warfare or battle related, like the Romans, Special Weapons and Tactics, or Underground Mafias. And then there is that slightly-strange side of armies where leaders name their group after food. The Nachos, the Tacos, the Pretzels, and even the… Pringles?

You didn’t ask but I’ll tell you anyway: my absolute most favourite army name of all time is the Gugu Pengu’s Romans. They were created and run by “famous penguin influencer” Gu Gu Pengu, and their name & history puts to shame the “cult” armies of today.

At times the column can be a bit of a meme, is this because of ‘joke’ questions that people genuinely ask, lack of real questions, or is it done purposely to engage the audience?

Dear Reader,

All the questions I answer in this column are 100% genuine, and my daily begging for questions on the Army Hub Discord (if you know, you know) means I’m never short of questions either! These questions I receive are sometimes serious, sometimes funny and sometimes too ridiculous or inappropriate for me to include. I answer five each week, and like to ensure there is a balance of seriousness and jokey to “engage the audience”, as you put it.

With love, Max

What is your stance on banning armies from the league?

Dear Reader,

Oh no, this is going to get me in trouble (internal screaming). What I will say on this topic is, if an army is deemed detrimental to the sustainability and survival of this community by the army representatives (and them alone), then yes they should be removed from the league aspect of the Army Hub. This does not mean they should be removed from the community as a whole, and they should most certainly not be exempt from the media. The media is imperative to hold those accountable for their actions, and should never be censored. In regards to the Top Ten, I am passionate about a universal Top Ten that includes all armies, regardless of their league or private server. The CPAL’s decision to exclude armies from both their Top Ten and media was, in my opinion, hugely detrimental to the community and something I am proud the CP Army Hub has rectified.

This question is obviously in response to the army representatives decision this week to remove both the Recon Federation and Templars from the Army Hub league. This means they cannot operate in anything league-related, such as the server map. This was voted through with an overwhelming favour – just one rep voted against the removal.

With love, Max
