What’s good folks I’ll keep this short and sweet. SWAT is currently involved with the Bloodbath Barrage war against the Dark Vikings for a plethora of reasons which were addressed in our declaration. This war is currently our primary focus and will be for many coming weeks. We declared war and made a commitment to not only our Brother Allies but all signatories of the Sapphire Concordat. SWAT will be following through with said commitment. Through this declaration, we somehow managed to unite the Small/Medium community against the vile Dark Vikings. I am very pleased with our progress thus far in this war and cannot wait to see how we continue to improve!

As of May 30, 2023, the Special Weapons and Tactics hereby remove ourselves from the Club Penguin Armies Map.

Regarding the invasions by the Army of CP and Elite Guardians, I will let admins decide where specifically our land goes. If we did not have prior commitments we would be happy to partake in either war. Nonetheless, we appreciate the efforts made by ACP and EGCP to have a nice fun war and help keep the community alive. I extend my own personal condolences to both armies, as I know how essential and enjoyable warfare is. In the words of the great Frosty the Snowman, “This isn’t goodbye it’s just see you later.” SWAT looks forward to warring with both armies in the future.

Shoutout to SWAT Agent Trainee Aerobly for the cake pictured above!

Listen to the above audio to get the full post experience.

As of May 22, 2023, the Sapphire Concordat – consisting of the Special Weapons and Tactics alongside our Brother Allies, the People’s Imperial Confederation – hereby declares a state of WAR on the Dark Vikings.

SWAT has been very openly against the dim-witted Dark Vikings for a long period of time now. In 2022 the Dark Vikings relied on their allies to boost them through a war with SWAT, as they were desperate for any semblance of relevance. They attempted to name servers very inhumane and offensive things, as well as engaging in a plethora of other controversial behaviors. To cite a few, the Dark Vikings have notably harbored doxxers in their leadership, partook in underhanded tactics, and stroked their egos off of their “success.” This ends now. Originally, this would have spawned a war in early February but in a feat of cowardice, the Dork Vikings removed themselves from the CPA Map. This forced us to go against the Rebel Penguin Federation as they were the only other army SWAT was not in a treaty with that was present on the map.

Since their departure from the CPA Map in February, the Dark Vikings have refused to return, and have continued their egregious behaviors. In recent days they have now turned their sights against our Brother Ally, the unwavering People’s Imperial Confederation. Despite losing to the PIC in the AUSIA Arena tournament, Dark Vikings leader and local numbskull Krosive started relentlessly insulting our longtime allies and my personal friends. The Dark Vikings have shown that they are incapable of accepting defeat, as they delusionally claim victory following their constant failures. Dark Vikings have consistently shown their lack of maturity, and their inflated egos are far larger than their maxes will ever be. This war will henceforth be known as the Bloodbath Barrage.

Bloodbath Barrage Terms

I. Both allies and dual-enlists are allowed.
II. If any army, other than PIC, SWAT, and DV, decides to join the war on either side, they will have to follow the same set of terms.
III. All war battles must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance with CPAJ, failure to do so will invalidate the scheduling. Leaders of the opposing army must be notified in CPAJ.
IV. No doxxing, ddosing, botting, discord server raiding, harassment, multilogging, or cheating of any form.
V. A withdrawal from this conflict for any reason and in any shape or form (e.g., withdrawing from the war, ghosting battles up to 3 battles in a row, etc.) will constitute a forfeit of the war.
VI. All CPA Battleground rules apply to each battle.
VII. Each army may only schedule one battle for each timezone per day (EX only one EU invasion can be held per day by one army etc)
VIII. The losing army in this conflict must accept the treaty terms provided by the winning army

(Due to the Dark Vikings holding no servers SWAT and PIC have taken the liberty of naming their servers)

Welcome to a new edition of Veteran’s Perspective, where we highlight a veteran who was crucial to the success of SWAT. We will also get their take on the current state of the army as compared to it’s past. This week’s column will feature Mare. Although she is a one of SWAT’s more recent veterans, Mare has played a significant role in the success of the army.

Read more: ✪】Veteran’s Perspective

Mare’s Army Career

Mare began her army career in 2020 where she was recruited to SWAT by Darklink. Due to her dedication, she quickly rose through the ranks and was granted a staff position. In April/May of 2020, she left SWAT to focus on One Direction Army along with Aubz, Frankie, and Izzy. This army went on to achieve maxes as high as 21. ODA also took part in Legends Cup X. Furthermore, Mare was responsible for negotiating a merge with a small army known as the the Fire Ninjas of Club Penguin.

ODA event during Mare’s leadership

Despite her success in ODA, Mare refocused her energy on SWAT during the Water Vikings war in July of 2020. During the war, she created the ED EF flicker as a weapon against their opponents. Mare referred to this technique as “photosynthesis”. Mare’s war efforts led to her leadership promotion the following month. During her tenure as leader, she helped lead other major wars including the Flash Nemesis War and Operation Templaria. Mare retired from leadership on August 12th 2021, approximately one year after her promotion. However, she returned to lead SWAT shortly after from the end of 2021 to the middle of 2022. During this time, she helped create the Western Block Alliance which saw an alliance between SWAT, Water Vikings, and Silver Empire. Furthermore, she helped lead another war against the Templars in October 2021 where Xing accused the WBA of being “Backstabbing Hypocrites”.

SWAT-WV battle on August 30th 2020. SWAT won with a 2-1 score

In late July of 2021, Mare founded the Dua Inn Lipa Fighters as a meme army. However, they quickly reached 7th place in CPAHQ’s top ten, and maxed over 30 at a few of their events. Her persistent leadership throughout these armies led to her S/M army legend induction at the end of 2021 after receiving 11 votes. Mare also revived DILF in February 2023 for their second generation.

Aside from leadership, Mare is also a prominent CPA judge. Since 2020, she served in various leagues including Sub Zero Army League, Club Penguin Army Network, and the current league Club Penguin Armies. On April 30th 2023, Mare became a new head judge after exceeding the 75% voting threshold.

The Director Dispatch reached out to Mare for an exclusive interview. Take a look at what she had to say!

Who or what led you to joining SWAT, and did you have any mentors during your tenure?

Previous SWAT leader, darklink, found me on the CPO discord and offered me a staff position in SWAT in April 2020! I mainly looked up to my best friend, Aubz she was a LIT at the time:) Afterwards, we rejoined SWAT again and I got up to leadership position. I looked up to a lot of people while leading too ganger, oli, sammie, & aubz. Coolguy was helpful as well during the time he became active he taught me how to chill out when things got chaotic.

In what ways is the current state of SWAT similar to when you were leader, and in what ways is it different?

Well, a way that it is now vs when I was leading was we had so many of us… Like we had Ganger, Coolguy, Firestar, Kaliee, Aubz, Lego, and me at a point which was a lot of people. Also keep in mind, a lot of us are very opinionated people hahaha, but it was fun! Now, there’s only Lego, Aisha & Ganger leading, but he’s doing a great job at it and holding it together from what I can see.

What were some of your most cherished memories and/or accomplishments during your time in SWAT?

When we were at war and the whole server had a red theme it was really cool!!
I like don’t remember too much
but def that was my fave moment

What are your overall predictions for SWAT’s future?

No clue really, but probably are still gonna be a major army through the entire year and hopefully do well!

Mare has certainly proven herself as a dedicated and strong asset to not only SWAT, but every army that she led. She continues to make her mark on the community through her moderation position in CPA as well as her judging affairs. We at the Director’s Dispatch show our gratitude for all of Mare’s contributions to SWAT.

Welcome to the first edition of Veteran’s Perspective! Each week, we will highlight a SWAT Veteran who was crucial to the success of the army. We will explore their army history both in SWAT and in the community at large. Furthermore, our Director Dispatch team will inquire about their opinions on the current state of SWAT as compared to its past. This first column will feature Stare3000, a SWAT Godfather, who has been in SWAT since 2009, the same year it opened!

Read more: ✪】Veteran’s Perspective

Stare3000’s Army Career

Stare3000 joined SWAT as one of its first troops in late 2009 but only became deeply involved in 2011. Their loyalty and dedication to the army allowed them to rise quickly through the ranks, earning the position of Leader-in-Training. In 2012, they stepped down from LIT before returning to their rank in late 2013. Furthermore, Stare3000 joined Reeces2011, Raprocks669, and Alina as SWAT Commander-In-Chief in the middle of 2014. Under their initial leadership, SWAT achieved max sizes ranging from the high 20s to the low 30s. Stare3000 retired from their leadership position in September of 2014 and was awarded SWAT Legend, before going on a hiatus until 2020.

Upon Stare3000’s return to the community, they rejoined SWAT for the first time in the discord and CPO era. This marked a period of instability, including then-leader Zuke being couped as well as a merger with the Doritos of Club Penguin.

SWAT Invasion of Permafrost in 2020

After their retirement, Stare3000 found a rotten mango on the floor at work. This inspired them to create the Mango Corps with Panini, Kaliee, and Smoke where they maxed 20 on average and were famous for their 3 am events. In Mango Corps, they engaged in battles with the Recon Federation.

Stare3000 spitting facts

Stare3000 soon became Commander-In-Chief for the second time. They would lead wars against the Water Vikings and the Superstars. Despite their success, Stare3000 decided to step down from SWAT leadership in October. Upon retiring, they were awarded SWAT Godfather, the highest honor one can receive in the army. Following this they were muted on countless accounts in Club Penguin Army Hub due to admins avoiding their genuine concerns.

Aubz and Stare3000’s retirement event in October 2020

Stare3000 would return temporarily to SWAT in November to lead and assist SWAT in achieving a max 42 at their practice battle with the Army of Club Penguin. This would go on to be the highest max of the current CPPS generation at that time. They would eventually go on to retire once again but still remain present until February of 2021 when they would depart from the SWAT Discord alongside the SammieDC.

Stare3000 would eventually return to advise amidst the Operation: Templaria war in 2021, as well as being carried in Castle Crashers by Legoman and Firestar08. They would go on to fall inactive shortly after the war’s conclusion. Stare3000 would have advisory stints in the army throughout 2022 and 2023. Actively participating in the Undertaker Crusade, and notably offering their expertise as far as developing a points system.

Stare3000 has always brought a fresh and innovative perspective to SWAT and unwavering resilience in the face of all trials and tribulations. SWAT is eternally grateful for their past and present contributions and will honor them forever.

The Director Dispatch reached out to Stare3000 for an exclusive interview. Take a look at what they had to say!

Who or what led you to joining SWAT, and did you have any mentors during your tenure?

I was 9 and I saw penguins and I thought it was cool, and I’d say Ganger was the closest I had to a mentor but I’ve learned from everyone I’ve been in armies with

In what ways is the current state of SWAT similar pre-2017, and it what ways is it different?

Not much is the same, I guess we still use a similar uniform but it’s a lot more organized and streamlined now. Over the last 3-4 years SWAT has turned itself into deep community while retaining its roots as a penguin army. Armies as a whole are completely changed.

Could you elaborate in what ways specifically SWAT has become more of a deep community?

The loyalty seen now from a lot of members(with notable exceptions) is very different than the past, while previously we would see people hop from army to army now we have people dedicating their entire army career to SWAT.

What were some of your most cherished memories and/or accomplishments during your time in SWAT

My most cherished accomplishment would have to be becoming Godfather. And uhhh cherished memory….

What did getting Godfather mean to you given all that you have done for SWAT?

It was a pretty big achievement, it meant I had finally achieved the highest honor of a community that means quite a lot to me

What are your overall predictions for SWAT’s future?

Gonna hit 1 on TT a few more times.

It seems as though Stare3000 has had an exciting and adventurous army career thus far. Their determination and loyalty to SWAT continue to be an amazing asset for the army. We at the Director Dispatch send out a massive show of appreciation to Stare3000 for all of their loyalty and continued service.
