[AUSIA] Preparation for RPF PB ¦ 13/01/2024

Hello Water Vikings! On 13th January 2023, we logged on to CPA Battleground and went to Icebreaker – Stadium to do our practice battle against the Blackhole Rebel Penguin Federation (RPF)

They played very well, but we don’t have nothing to envy, because we’re greatest WV.

Max. 17

Huge thanks to Mabel for VC leading and to Cabin for DM helps and Dino for tactic leading! And of course all staff and members that joined. Without you, this cannot be posible.

Thanks to everyone who attended and took event pictures!

Fear the Wave!

Skyu, besti WV

waaaaaa wv betrayed us as allies waaaaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaaaa

Waaaaaa WV betrayed EGCP because they were afraid of being beaten by an alliance but now we’re winning yet WV pussied out waaaaa 😭😭😭😭😭

We stood up for you despite your alliance with Dark Vikings and your disqualification from your solo war with ACP. We stood up for you even when it was wrong to. Our golden age in May ended prematurely because we and RPF bailed you out in tiresome battles that you almost choked even with the size advantage due to rough leading (me and Aaron even gave you pointers on how to improve which you ignored anyways).

We honestly damaged our global reputation and standing because we actually valued you. We did ALL of this because you actually cared about you as allies. But now you want to spin the narrative when it is conveniant? Fuck off.

You rejected our help and did this to yourself. We’ve had to put with your bottled hatred of us during the infamous Alabama Plan (WHICH DIDN’T EVEN NEGATIVELY AFFECT YOU, BTW LOL). And even despite that we treated you with respect even when you couldn’t reciprocate it back (like how we stepped outside of our comfort zone for an “AUSIA battle” at a different time and you nearly no-showed). We actually saw you almost like brothers like with RPF, but I guess that was all in vein.

The Water Vikings formally designate the Elite Guardians as an enemy army. This does not mean we are at war (see:Fiende til hæren” classification on our Empire page), but any formal foreign relations are indefinitely suspended going forward. And before you accuse us of wanting to start beef/wanting a war, stop bringing us into beef that doesn’t involve us in the first place lol. Your zealotry and over-pride has only been destructive for you this generation, especially when you constantly hurl subtle (and not-so-subtle) jabs at us both after the World War and especially now.

P.S. Don’t equate armies to terrorist regimes. Bluesockwa1 made a good post about this.

Statement Re: Community War on EGCP

For immediate release, addressed to the Water Vikings and the Army Community:

As of writing this statement, 4 armies—the Army of Club Penguin, People’s Imperial Confederation, Templars of Club Penguin, and Coup Crusaders—declared a state of war against our allies, the Elite Guardians of Club Penguin. In their declarations is a set of multiple charges, some of which are genuinely concerning and deserve to be admonished. The Water Vikings were informed of some (but not all) of the evidence days in advance which we found appalling.

Despite allies being allowed, the Water Vikings will not be directly intervening in the war on EGCP’s side nor will we be providing troops to help EGCP. Whilst we heavily condemn the character assassination on Edu14463, we are unable to look past other valid issues. Not only that, but we have felt that our alliance with EGCP has waned since World War 9.

Originally only declaring war on ACP in a preemptive decision to prevent a fledging new, revived EGCP from being attacked from what EGCP described as “ACP imperialism”, we have felt EGCP has ironically become the very thing they asked to stop. The stress we and our brother allies, the RPF, dealt with when collaborating with EGCP in BSA left irreconcilable diplomatic agendas. It did not help that EGCP pursued an alliance with the Dark Vikings and did not listen to us when advising them to avoid controversy.

WV has enjoyed repairing relations with the PICCP and TCP, and do not believe prostituting ourselves for allies who have not listened to us makes any sense whatsoever. It feels like being spit in the face after we naively felt EGCP would listen to our advice on how to not get into controversy. We will not be intervening in a war that not only has no gain for WV, but would be extremely naive to enable EGCP’s actions. We do not believe EGCP deserves to be thrown out of the community and still affirm our camaraderie with their army. However, we believe EGCP has brought this upon themselves and must learn the hard way after we have tried to bail them out on numerous occasions.

We remain solely committed to winning Christmas Chaos, and we hope to see all WV veterans attend as we look to make history.

P.S. WV always had intentions of making this statement, but purposely waited for declarations to drop. I have conveyed this to TCP leader Dawnables contrary to public opinion. I personally wanted WV HCOM to review before dropping. We do not tolerate the unnecessary slander, especially since if we had sided with EGCP we would’ve provided them the proof we were shown in advance.

Project: Rising Tsunami

PROJECT: RISING TSUNAMI

 

Current Stage: II

TBA

Introducing: Project Tsunami

For immediate release, addressed to the Water Vikings:

September was a very rocky month for WV which saw us almost drop to small-medium. After a draft proposal by advisor Aaronstone and heavy deliberation between the Viking Commanders, we have worked on and agreed on an outline for an ambitious rebuild to have the Water Vikings be successful this fall.

I am proud to announce Project Tsunami! Similar to Project Revival/Ascent, in which the Army of Club Penguin is underway, Project Tsunami is a series of 4 different phases. As a part of phase 1, the following things will be put into motion…

  • A complete overhaul of the staff-in-training program (due to heavy neglect of it);
  • Clean of the Water Vikings Discord (something we’ve been slowly doing);
  • Introduction of one-hour notice DMs for events going forward (along with the current log-on reminders 30 minutes before);
  • and overhaul of the Event Schedule.

The following will be the new Water Vikings event schedule for the foreseeable future. This is subject to change if we host any battles or take part in tournaments/wars.

Monday ┇ EU
Wednesday ┇ EU
Friday ┇ US
Saturday ┇ AUSIA

Along with this, we will be working on fixing how event tasks are handled and giving our HICOM more trust in event hostings. EU events will either be hosted at 3 PM EDT/8 PM UK or 4 PM EDT/9 PM UK; US events will be either hosted at 7 PM EDT/12 AM UK or 8 PM EDT/1 AM UK; and AUSIA will be hosted at 9 AM EDT/2 PM UK. Once all of these are accomplished, we intend on moving to phase 2 (which will have its own announcement post).

By the end of this project, we are looking to be going into the Winter as a competitive army once more after quite the mediocre months. If you’d like to be hired (or rejoin), please inform a Viking Commander (myself, Mabel, Jojo, or Claire). We need all the help we can get right now. Cheers!

Water Vikings Galactic Week

For immediate release, addressed to the Water Vikings:

As some of you may have noticed, the server has been redone to a Star Wars theme. As a part of an effort to build up the community, we intend on doing a lot of theme weeks going forward. Starting off, we wanted to do Star Wars due to the ongoing Ahsoka Disney+ series streaming right now. To accommodate this, we’ve made some changes.

I. Server

We’ve made some changes to the Water Vikings server. The first change is role renames. The role changes are as follows:

  • Viking Commander: Joint Chancellors
  • Viking General: Vice Chairs of the Senate
  • Viking Lord: Coruscant Ingress Ministers
  • Viking Chief: Imperial Senators
  • Viking Guard: Junior Senators
  • Viking Warrior: Apprentice Senators
  • Staff-in-Training: Senator-in-Training
  • Viking Commodore: Galactic Admiral
  • Viking Captain: Galactic Vice Admiral
  • Viking Lieutenant: Galactic Rear Admiral
  • Viking Ensign: Galactic Commodore
  • Viking Petty Officer: Galactic Captain
  • Viking Quartermaster: Galactic Lieutenant
  • Viking Constable: Galactic Ensign
  • Viking Sailor: Galactic Petty Officer
  • Viking Seaman: Galactic Crewman
  • Viking Cadet: Galactic Cadet
  • Viking Recruit: Galactic Recruit

Along with that, we have created a channel called #ahsoka-spoilers where you can freely talk about the show. Please do not spoil the show for others in the main chat! The only other change was the server icon and banner to match the theme.

II. Event Schedule

The event schedule for this week will also be adjusted for the Star Wars theme. Below is the theme of each event:

Wednesday: EU Sith Takeover Training (4 PM EDT / 9 PM UK)
Friday: US Clone Troopers U-Lead (7 PM EDT / 12 AM UK)
Saturday: EU Jedi Training & Fashion Contest (4 PM EDT / 9 PM UK)

We ask all troops to attend if they are able to as we look towards doing good this week and get back on track in spite of the September Drop. We will be doing game nights in between and a nitro giveaway if we get 20 attendees.

As a final note, if you can we’d love it if you changed your status to #MayTheForceBeWithWV. As we usually do for themes, we want all staff and even members (if they want to) to use the same status to show solidarity as a community and family. Feel free to change your profile picture to one that is Star Wars-related. That is all. Cheers WV!

The Show Must Go On

For immediate release, addressed to the Water Vikings:

Had to redraft this intro so many times as I wasn’t sure which way would be best. I ultimately concluded just cutting to the chase is best.

Monday, I filed a request for honorable retirement with HCOV. It was greenlit on the condition that I had some successors in mind. The plan with this announcement was to announce that I’d be retiring on August 30th; that would’ve still been the plan had I not done some contemplating on Wednesday. I don’t think WV would be in good hands if I retired earlier than I wanted to. As such, I will not be retiring after all. But just because I am not retiring doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be some change.

First of all, I will be formally going on leave for the next 7 days to focus on regaining my motivation. I was going to this back in late June after AUSIA Arena but the thrill made me hold off (which in hindsight was a bad call). Secondly, I’d like to announce the following new Viking Commanders:

  • Jojo Teri: A very great battle tactician and recruitment workhorse, Jojo joined us during the miserable tail-end of last year and has stayed with us through thick and thin.
  • Claire: Having been with WV since 2020 and staff/HICOM since 2021, Claire has always proved to be a welcoming workhorse and heavily involved in promoting the community.

Now some will be asking: how will this leadership work? Until the USWV constitution is finished, me and Mabel will stay as the acting First and Second Ministers (respectively)—meaning we are the only ones who can act on WV’s behalf in foreign relations. Jojo and Claire though will be equals to us two in every other factor (including day-to-day affairs).

My role as a leader will be evolving. It is clear the army cannot survive long-term if I still struggle to find the time (along with Mabel juggling work). That’s why these promotions were done and will be permanent. My role in the army now will be more of a councilor figure. I’m going to be making sure all staff gets adjusted to Jojo and Claire (as well as trust them) and make sure they regularly do things I did that helped the army when we first revived.

I will eventually retire. My time, however, is not now. I just do not think it would be right for me to just abandon WV. I need to make sure the army is in secure hands. When I do eventually retire, I want it to be like this I had no importance to the army and thus it continues as is. It sounds masochistic, but I want the army to learn to move on from me properly. I have fought multiple times to ensure that HCOV didn’t micro-manage during my and Mabel’s leadership. Instead of being reactionary like mid-2021 Revan would’ve probably wanted, I see HCOV as a positive. However, I want the army to be self-sufficient.

In a staff meeting last week, the point was raised that this army is carried by me and Mabel. I disagree but I do acknowledge that if we two are not active, the impact outweighs the hard work of the other staff. I believe this will ensure the stability of WV is maintained. We cannot let this Blue Summer die in vain.

I’m not going to wax poetic anymore. We have a tournament (Legends Cup) to win. Let’s win this together as a team.
