Yesterday Club Penguin Blogger Lebron Jr 23 published a rather interesting post about Club Penguin and what they should do in the future to appeal to more users. His post starts off with the following preamble:
If you are not a part of the Club Penguin Twitter world, I am here to fill you in on what you are missing. Today, many penguins flocked to the subject of old Club Penguin. Many thought Club Penguin was better a few years ago, others said Club Penguin is fine the way it is. A lot of people like to blame Disney for any problems with Club Penguin but I don’t like pointing the finger at the Mouse. No matter who we want to blame, it is obvious that a large group of penguins have a problem with the current state of Club Penguin. This is what leads us to the question, “What Does Club Penguin Need To Do?”
Here’s a quick excerpt from the middle of his writing:
The average player back in 2006 was about 9-12 years old. This means that these players are now around 18+ years old! I call these players, Generation 1, and trust me, most of these players are no longer playing. So, Why doesn’t Club Penguin go back to some of the original parties that earned them fame to begin with. If these parties were a hit with generation 1 Club Penguin players, chances are they will be a hit with generation 2 as well! I think generation 2 will also get a kick out of seeing pieces of Club Penguin’s history. Some notable parties that could be brought back are the Winter Luau, Western Party, Water Party, Summer Party and color release parties like the Lime Green Party. Also, even celebrating the release of a new room like the Lighthouse was a really cool party! Simple Club Penguin parties but a lot of fun! I understand some of these parties had very rare items that Club Penguin may not want to bring back, but maybe they could have new items that are inspired by the old rare items. For example, instead of having another red lei at the Luau, have a green lei!
While I don’t agree with absolutely everything in his post (we all have opinions, eh?) I do think it’s a very good read you should check out. Lebron makes some very valid points about Club Penguin and “generation 2” as he calls it. If you want to read the full post you can check it out on his website here. Let me know what you think of it! A post of mine you could read that’s somewhat similar would be Why Disney Hasn’t Ruined Club Penguin from July 30, 2011.
One other thing: Many people that say they want “Old CP back” were not even there to begin with.
