The Truth about ACP

Hello CPAC. I have not posted in 3 weeks, surprised about not being taken off the site. However, I do not deserve to be here, especially with my in-activeness  This is why I am making my last post, and hopefully the best on CPAC.  Without further adieu, read on:

Just a month ago ACP was getting 15, maybe even 10. Their US events were worse, getting barely 6 on CP. Everyone thought ACP was in despair, that they would stay there. Their short rises to 1st in the top ten were quickly covered with defenses from other armies, decreasing their sizes to 10 on CP. Now however, that is the past. Proven during the past  weeks, the ACP… more importantly the US division has seen heights not seen in months. We can not conclude that this is going to be long lasting, but we can say ACP will not fall down too low, should they keep up with what they are doing. The question is: how and why did ACP come back from the dead?


November 17th, 2008 

After a massive loss in WWIV, the ACP were in a depression. Oagal had been so close to deleting the site. Shaboomboom and Oagal were fighting frequently, and the war for Mammoth had been badly lost. The army community had turned against ACP, and hurt them very bad. This was one of the first massive-scaled falls ACP had.

Soon though, Boomer was put into command, bringing ACP a time of peace, and more importantly…prosperity. Boomer rose ACP to heights of 90 soldiers on CP, as seen below:

ACP- February 2009


June 22nd, 2012

After the liberation of Mammoth, the LT-ACP war had ended, and ACP were thinking of having a rebuilding session soon after. That soon changed, when on June 20th, Kenneth1000 declared war on the Nachos of CP, 2 days before his scheduled retirement. It was believed that Slider568 was going to lead the ACP to victory in the war… but ACP’s plans soon changed 2 days later.

July 1st saw the retirement of 2/3 of ACP’s owner line. More importantly, Slider retired 7 hours after formally becoming leader. This brought shock to the ACP. Soon, it was settled that former ACP leader Mchappy would step in to bring ACP to victory against the Nachos.


July 29th, 2012

After nearly one month of intense fighting, the Nachos of CP had beaten ACP in a war, the first time ACP truly surrendered a war to any army at all.

“I hereby declare July 29th a National Holiday for the Nacho Army. A day of remembrance, for those who bravely fought against the ACP and came out victorious.” ~Tanman626, July 29th, 2012

The ACP soon lost their long-beloved leader, Mchappy after the surrender to the Nachos, quickly replaced by Kingfunks4. Ina month, ACP had 3 leadership changes, something formidable that had never happened before. Funks was looking forward to rebuild ACP once more, but his wishes were blown away after LT decided to invade ACP. The war lasted until mid- August, with LT surrendering to ACP.


August 23rd, 2012

Yet another change in the ACP leadership. After Funks went on vacation for a few weeks, and very ill, Capncook ACP 1.5ic, decided to coup Funks. This did not go as he planned it, with Boomer 20 stepping in and making Ek ACP supreme commander, and demoting Funks to 2ic. Capncook left ACP for AR soon after.


The 7 month war~ August 2012 – February 26th, 2013

It looked like the end for the ACP. For 7 whole months, armies from the BA and countless others kept on scheduling invasions on the ACP. The armies known to do so were ST, PCP, CPPA, DW, SWAT, HSA, LT, UCCP, Nachos and UMA. Soldiers began quitting ACP, since it was getting boring, and ACP were diminishing in size. WWVI erupted, lasting throughout November, not allowing ACP to recruit at all. Hence their small size, many of the WA allies left ACP, as the Army of CP were too involved with defending territory that they could not help their alliance.

During winter 2013, Funks began making alliances with other armies. The trick was to make peace treaties with the armies, diminishing the enemies against ACP. During February, the last army against ACP were the Pirates, which Funks formally surrendered to on February 26th, 2013, giving away 4 servers.

After 7 months and 10 armies, the Army of CP was at peace.


Right after the war, Funks promoted Swimmer to leader, and Kenneth to 2ic. It was time for ACP to rebuild, to recruit. Something ACP had not done for 7 months. The results were immediately seen, something truly spectacular.

1st week.

3rd week.

Let us look back at 2008-2009 and 2012-2013. Something in common? Or just a coincidence?

Here is the true point in this post:

The Army of CP fell because the army community turned against them, something that happened 5 years ago. Ever since their creation by Oagalthorp, the ACP have seemingly controlled the army community, always getting their way, since they were always the largest. How did it work out? Simple. ACP were never against more than one-two opponents. And if there were more, they always had allies to aid them. Obviously ACP was large enough to take one opponent down. However, the BA played out a smart move, by not letting ACP to revive. They kept on posting invasion and invasion, weakening the ACP as a whole. Back in 2008, all armies united against ACP, resulting in the same consequence.

ACP may be the largest army, but they are not large enough to defeat all of the community.

The reason why all of the armies declared war on ACP was for payback from the earlier years. They all took their share, and once they were done… they left. You shouldn’t be blaming it all on Funks. You should be blaming it on Boomer, on Shaboomboom, on Mchappy, on Kenneth. Allof those leaders that led ACP the way I mentioned above.

Could this happen again?

Definitely. In fact, ACP is now very fragile. They do not have a lot of allies, and many still have memories of ACP’s previous dominance. If ACP turn out like the former ACP, they could easily fall back to sizes of 15 in UK and 5 in US events. Noting the Nacho dominance, the ACP aren’t still in the clear, as the Nachos are itching a little to have a conflict with ACP.

Conclusion (my opinion on ACP’s position):

Right now, ACP should make sure to not piss any army off. With the tournament over for them, they should be scheduling a few PB’s to stabilize themselves. More importantly, they must change their old ways. Although Funks was never an old ACP leader, their 2ic Kenneth was a prime reason of many armies going against ACP. Although ACP has peace treaties with a few armies, they are still not safe.

If you survived till the end, I hope you understood the post. More importantly, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I loved writing it. This is my last post for now, until I have more time on my hands. Btw this is 1200 words long 🙂

  1. Nice post. I well remember the late 2008 Mammoth disaster for ACP, though I didn’t make the connection to the Seven Month War. Post-war peace seems to be capitalized well by ACP’s leaders, it seems.


    • Both times ACP was against practically the whole army community. Both times ACP lost size dramatically, because of the way they acted. Both times ACP rose back to heights since the leaders understood that if they keep making new enemies, they will fall even lower. The post is basically to show the connection/prove and show that this can in fact happen again.


  2. Hmm. The way you’ve written it has such a bold impact. The way you described ACP from the beginning till the end is just fantastic. Yes, the leaders you have mentioned (excluding Funks) are to blame as they took most of the ‘important’ changes in ACP. Making huge decisions that is.


  3. Ooh still butthurt about my comment?


  4. Still a good post though.


  5. Extremely good post! I think you should stay at CPAC. Really excellent and best philosopher post I’ve seen in awhile! 🙂


  6. let’s declare war on acp


  7. The History of ACP and your right we are the largest.


  8. Misleading title you’re just listing the bad points in ACP’s history


  9. I was expecting some Ronald McDonald stuff, but i guess this is cool too


  10. Probably the best post that’s been on CPAC in 2 years. Very nice analysis, and the connection between 2008 and 2012 was very unexpected, on my part, but brilliant. Props to you, whoever you are.
