The Riot Journals [Week Eight]: Declaration of War, Good Sir

The Pros and Cons of our fantastic little world here can stretch on and on for years and years. However, the effects of war can vary based on several Independent and Dependent Factors. War is started nonstop in this world of Club Penguin Virtual Armies. If the word Army is involved, you should see the word “War” Popping up every now and again.

Since our damned creation in this game, we’ve gone through six world wars and countless smaller ones between each other. Not to mention the “border skirmishes”  armies had solved before signing out a declaration of war.

Declaration of War? Such words are gone in todays Internet Slang, slander and misuse of Netiquette. All that seems to happen these days is a post plastered on both sites saying random times for the first event, some reason why Army A wants to go to war with Army B, and  some sort of pic slandering the other army [cough, insert Army of CP Site here, cough].

The days turn, and eventually one of three things happen. They either make up, team up temporarily to fight someone else, or someone eventually wins. If someone eventually wins, servers are reorganized, making someone’s job painfully difficult, or some other random win for the winners.

The winners are given glory, and they usually bask in it as long as they can.

Declaration of war, good sir, effects the army world as much as anything, if not more. Armies could merge, die, ally, and much, much more before finally realizing the true intentions of war.

The one true resource for your wars should be the, wait for it, the Top Tens.

The pic below, tweeted by Wwe, prooves this point exactly.

True, good sir.

The passage below comes from Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese battlefield mastermind who wrote the book The Art of War.

Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundless.  Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate. […] The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting. […] The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself. […] Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory. […] In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy’s country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death. 

Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese military general, was a master at war, writing books and novels based on how to win and how to win quickly. The passage above touches on Troop Respect, Strategy, and Working Out War without Loosing Resources. All three of those figures are important to CP Armies in this day of age.

The most important factor of Virtual War between Two Seperate Armies, let’s say the Derp Dynasty and the Bluesockwa Haters Assocatio(two null Armies I’ve used in my past philosophical posts), go to war for some random reason. Let’s say Derp Dynasty trained on the Bluesockwa Haters Association’s Capital Server by mistake.

Not only will this war be over something stupid, but they will probably both be too stubborn to back out, making this war long, and quiet boring since it IS over something avoidable and workable. Not to mention the fact that maybe this war happened, I don’t know, in the middle of School Season or the fact that DD is a US-Based Army and the BHA is a UK-Based Army. Well, the Bluesockwa Hater’s Association is everywhere I guess. Hint-hint at the name.

War can be affecting in all corners of our virtual society. But sometimes it is unavoidable, considering a couple of the world wars or a war based on something that two reasonably good sized-armies cannot work out.

According to great philosophical minds, like Sun Tzu, however, War can Be Avoidable at All costs. Even if it means a Compromise. However, without wars, our armies would die quickly due to no events.

Something to ponder over in this philosophical corner of our Virtual Society.

Philosophy is Opinion. One cannot Discontinue Opinion.
