On This Day In Club Penguin History – May 3

On the 3rd of May Club Penguin has updated in 2011 and 2012…and in 2012 there were a lot of updates. In 2011 the beta team was released, and in 2012, in addition to the beginning of the month updates such as a new edition of the Penguin Style and a new pin, there was also a new field op, a new login screen, and a new log off screen.

In 2011 there was just one update, and it wasn’t in-game, either. The Beta Team was released. The Beta Team was a secret section on Club Penguin’s website where players could login and test concept ideas Club Penguin has made. Rollerscape, Puffle Hat Ideas, and Rollerscape History were the first concepts released, although Puffle Hat Ideas and Rollerscape History did not work when the Beta Team twas released. Rollerscape is now known as Pufflescape.

Jumping ahead a year, the biggest update on this day in 2012 was a new clothing catalogue. A usual tradition for May around these years, the catalogue contained medieval themed items. In total there was five new pages of items, plus six hidden items spread across two locations.


Another update on this day in 2012 was a new pin. The Black Helm Pin, Club Penguin’s 203rd pin, was hidden at the Cove. It was the ninth pin to be hidden in that room.

Also on this day in 2012 the 80th field op was released. Gary’s mission orders were as follows:

Last week, we investigated reports of cream soda missing from the Pizza Parlor. A note was left, signed by Rookie, but was not written by him. These may be the clues we’ve been waiting for, but we need more. Go to the Ski Hill, connect to the EPF antenna, and look for any unusual signals.

The mission was completed by breaking the code, which was done by scanning symbols to find the correct combination.

The final two updates in 2012 has to do with logging in and out. A new login screen advertising the upcoming Medival Party was added, saying “Heroes Needed. Medieval Party May 17 – 29”. There was also a new logoff screen, this one saying “New igloo items on Thursday!”
