Today an undeniably, no matter how controversial, significant member and blogger of Club Penguin has left the community: Riyita, the owner of Club PEnguin Space. I would first like to say that it is a real shame to see Riyita leave but due to this, many people have been questioning the future of our Island.
Club Penguin Island is amazing, it has so much potential (read more) but it won’t replace Club Penguin. There’s just something about the game that makes it so different to the classic version, something that can’t be pointed simply on the restriction of non-members.
If browser gaming is really dead, explain how private servers are thriving. Every wrong decision made can be brought back to the team, under leadership from Spike Hike, deciding to go down the mobile-only route. In 2014/5-ish when they started going heavily down this route, the game was still successful. But then it started going downhill.
The problem with CPI compared to classic CP is that they’re focusing too much on stuff inside the game when they should be focusing on stuff outside of it. It’s awesome to be able to customise your clothing to make it however you like – but where are the armies and pookies?
We’ve seen more players create social media accounts, but not nearly as many as those who left but promised to return when “Project Super Secret” was revealed, only for that to disappoint many. Why are the same blogs still going with the addition of only a handful more? Read more.
Classic Club Penguin just had that special feel to it that’s hard to explain in words. I can see why CP Rewritten is so successful because of it, they’ve successfully captured that feel, something which CPI hasn’t done. Club Penguin Island needs to be more than just another game – a good a game as it is.
Club Penguin’s value is indeed in the community and more of that needs to be invested into CP Island. I mean, it’s great the team are now interacting on Twitter. Eventually I hope to see the team responding on YouTube videos, blogs, and going with the giving bloggers minor sneak peeks idea. That’s interaction that should happen, in my opinion.
Like, Club Penguin Rewritten probably has more daily users than CP Island and I can see why. I don’t play it but from the screenshots, it’s because of the community. That’s why Megg has such an important role in the success of the Island. And this post has no structure but something I still wanted to share.
Also, Wikipedia, I love Club Penguin Island so don’t consider this negative, kthxbai. Thanks for reading!
