Call To Arms: SWAT’s Christmas Chaos Past/Present

Attention all of SWAT, the Christmas Chaos is coming up and we will need EVERYONE’s help. But what is the Christmas Chaos? Well we’ll be talking about everything right here.

The Christmas Chaos is a tournament is a tournament which was first held way back in 2011. SWAT’s history in this tournament goes way back to 2011 and we will go through SWAT’s history in the CC in this post. However, SWAT has never won this tournament. Let’s change that, let’s become the first generation, the first SWAT team to grab that trophy with both hands and proudly say that we are Christmas Chaos Champions, let’s make history. Let’s aim for the win, let’s aim to be the team who wins this, let’s etch all our names in SWAT’s history with this monumental win.

Now, onto SWAT’s history in the CC. In 2011, SWAT participated in the CC, however, despite our name being in the running, we didn’t make it past round 1, not even putting up a fight. 2012 we gave a fight against Army Republic, narrowly losing in the first round once again. However, our site did get defaced during the week of the CC which could’ve led to the breakdown in the first round..

Moving onto 2013, we were up against our greatest rival, The Army of Club Penguin (ACP). The fight was real for SWAT as we aimed to defeat ACP once and for all, however, with a 8 penguin size advantage, we lost once again.

While our size wasn’t shown in this pic, we ended up maxing 20

We disappeared from the 2014 CC. SWAT shut down in October 2014 and didn’t revive until mid-December 2014 which meant we were too late to participate in the CC tournament. SWAT made its return to the tournament in CC in 2015 only to get disqualified for multilogging before the tournament began meaning C*mshooters would proceed to round 2 and we wouldn’t get a chance. We were also not in the Christmas Chaos in 2016, cancelling any chances to get further.

From then on, SWAT was considered as dead and didn’t come back till 2020. In late November 2020 SWAT faced Pizza Federation after many wars in our first round of the Christmas chaos since 2013. This was a massive deal for SWAT, however we failed to secure the win despite a high max.

In 2021 we aimed to overcome adversity and prove people wrong by going further in the CC than ever before. We blazed past Red Ravagers in the first round of the Christmas Chaos despite many of the admins/cpahq staff predicting a big SWAT loss. We proved the haters, in that moment, wrong. While ofc, they may not have been hating SWAT, they were certainly underestimating us.

This win moved us onto the quarter-finals against RPF, however, we were out-gunned which saw us bow out of the Christmas Chaos once more.

Despite all the highs that SWAT have had, despite all the years of work that we have seen in SWAT, it wasn’t until last year that we breezed past round one. This puts us in a position that is unique. We have the chance to make history once more in this generation of SWAT. We will be facing Rebel Penguin Federation in the first round once more, we defeated RPF recently in the LC this year before getting disqualified because of a person’s multi-logging outside the LC battle. This proved to us that we can do it and may have just set up this battle against RPF in the CC but now it’s time for our revenge, its time to write OUR story. It’s time to dethrone RPF in their campaign to win CC and all those who get in our way.

If we beat RPF in the qualifiers, we’ll go into the Semi-finals, a place where SWAT has never gone before in CC history. But we aren’t aiming for the Semi-Finals, no. We are aiming for the trophy! Our history is different for sure, it’s unique but it isn’t perfect, nor is it complete. However, we can write our own history here, we can go above and beyond to grab that cup with both hands and say, WE won this, WE have been where no other SWAT gen has been, WE have been writing our history for so long and now we have a chance to grab a trophy to show for it, for all our hard work. Rome wasn’t built in 1 day but SWAT can pull a W out the bag with EVERYONE’s help. So we’re calling on you, every single SWAT troop there has been to help us reach our goal, help us gain glory.

Lets go out there and WIN! LET’S MAKE HISTORY! The recruiting contest has also started so make sure you get in on that so that you can be in with a chance to win! LET’S GO SWAT!!!


Chaos At The Christmas Chaos + A SWAT Talk

Today, on the 2nd of December, SWAT was matched against Red Ravagers and while many could say that SWAT was bound to be victorious (no disrespect ravvy’s but the judgement is made from SWAT’s status and history, nothing against anyone), some people who “predicted” the Christmas Chaos results put SWAT as the underdogs, thinking that SWAT is weak and will lie down during the tournament and die.

Awwww Cuteeee

Well, guess who proved the doubters wrong? SWAT did! Never underestimate SWAT! If we are down, if we are dying, even if we are dead we will rise from the ashes and through all of the wars that we’ve been through and that all of the people above have witnessed, you’d expect them to have some faith in us at least, ah well, their loss. This isn’t a hate post btw, just a show of how comical all this is, the tournament, the predictions and everything else

Some of you may wonder why we would choose to write a post about the Christmas Chaos instead of just laughing in private, well for one, I love to laugh about this and for two there is more than just 1 meaning to this post. We as SWAT are changing, we are going to experience a new era. Yes, SWAT has been experiencing some bad times, however, that doesn’t mean everything is bad. Actually, there have been things that people don’t see and a lot of good has come from it. I want to talk about 1 thing before I get on to some news.

SWAT is an army and honestly some people, troops even may just see SWAT as that but an interesting conversation occurred last night which made me want to write this. We are leading swat through good and bad times, we do not just tremble when bad times come and we do not go too far in the good times that we are blind as to what is in front of us. However, we try to enjoy the moment and make it enjoyable for every single one of you because I can’t speak for everyone but I know that my experiences of armies have varied and while a lot of bad things may occur during the time in them, a lot of good things come too and maybe these good things won’t last forever and some no, in fact, a lot of them haven’t lasted at all. However, I still reflect on them good moments in armies and consider them as good times. We enjoyed the time we had in armies because of the moments we created with the people around us, friends….family. I could talk all day about my experiences and the ones I remember the most because let’s face it, I certainly don’t remember everything but the point I’m trying to make is that we are trying to make this experience the best for you…all of you. Whether you are a troop, staff, hcom or hell even a leader, we want this experience to be memorable, we want you to think back in a couple of years time if you’re not here and think damn I really miss them days or I had fun back then; even remembering them alone is enough to make the experience worthwhile. We are a family and we do care for every single one of you, we want you to have great times in SWAT and even if you’re having troubles in real life or on here, we’re always here because that’s what family is for. We are here for everyone, to help everyone, to befriend everyone, to make this family whole. Always remember that we are family and nothing can change that. Old or new doesn’t matter, what matters is that you were or are a part of this swat team…this swat family.

Now, as I was saying, SWAT is making some changes and we recently saw the induction of Camotes as a SWAT leader. Now, I’m happy to inform you that we have a new face to induct! ASTRO has also stepped up and has been made leader. All of us leaders really appreciate his willingness, motivation and drive. We know that as a new addition to the leadership, he will be able to provide many great qualities and together, we shall build an army no one wants to face. We will come together as a family and fight for what is right. We will face all haters head-on and we will keep rising as we did today, as we do in every single war we participate in. We are SWAT, we do not back down! We do not die! We do not tremble! We are SWAT and SWAT is ohana. Ohana means Family, family means NOBODY GETS LEFT BEHIND OR FORGOTTEN. Past, present or future you are family and we will all stand together to fight for SWAT and ex-troops or vets who turn their back on SWAT shall realise that they made a huge mistake. As for other surprises, I guess you’ll have to wait and see what happens 😉
