TOBOGGAN, Silver Empire Capital – The Silver Empire announced its closure a little more than a month after celebrating its 2nd anniversary. Why did they shut down and will they build their empire again?
On May 22th, 2022, Holly, a current leader, announced the closure of the Silver Empire, effective May 28th. She thanked all of the previous leaders in her announcement and wished everyone the best of luck in whatever they decided to pursue after.
Zach and Jimmy founded Silver Empire on April 20th, 2020, after a dispute in Golds Empire. What began as a joke quickly evolved into a fully functional army. There have been eight leaders in their history: Zach, Jimmy, Fae, Electrumm, Comedy, df44, Dragon, and Holly. In their first tournament, Beach Brawl, they defeated Special Weapons and Tactics and the Templars. The Silvers were promoted to Major Army in March 2021, just in time for their March Madness battle versus the Fire Warriors. They eventually lost to the Help Force, but the battle foreshadowed the animosity to come.
Shortly after celebrating their 1st anniversary, the Help Force and Red Ravagers declared war – the first in the Silver Empire’s history. Several posts were swapped, despite the Silver Empire’s refusal to participate, which resulted in no battles. The Silvers took part in Project Conquest in June 2021. Although not an original favourite to win, they proved themselves a strong opponent only losing to the Army of CP, receiving second place. In October 2021, the Silvers declared war on the Help Force, precipitating World War III. The Western Bloc was formed from an alliance between the Silvers, Water Vikings, and Special Weapons and Tactics. The Silver Empire participated in numerous tournaments since, eventually winning their first-ever tournament triumph in the Small-Medium Free For All earlier this year.
CP Army Headquarters reached out to Holly to see what the Silvers will do in the future.
What was the reason for the closure of the Silver Empire?
We’ve always informed our team that real life is always more important than a penguin game, and regrettably, we noticed that with that, we didn’t have enough active staff to manage the army and assist it reach its full potential. As a result, this was one of the primary causes of the situation.
Do you think that there is a possibility that we will see the Silvers back in town?
I certainly hope so. SE deserves to thrive, and who knows, maybe one day we’ll see the return, but for now, I believe the Silver Empire should concentrate on growing as a community.
Could you tell us one of the memorable anecdotes you have had in the Silver Empire?
It’s hard to think of just one, but probably the Cheese Empire xD. We renamed the server and all the roles to something related to cheese, so we have cheese Commander, grand cheese brigadier and just cheese slice for private 😂 it was weird but funny.
What is one of the proudest accomplishments of Silver Empires?
I would say either becoming major or winning the Small Medium Free For All Tournament.
Do you have any future plans in armies for the meantime?
I’ve been offered positions in a few, which is nice, but I think I need a break from CPA for the time being. Perhaps in the future.
Any words you would like to say to the troops and other armies?
Thank you for all of your encouragement and support over the years. We were able to keep going strong until the end because of you. Thank you to our incredible allies for your unending support and good times. Despite the closure, we are still operating as a server, so we are not going too far!
Silver Will Always Shine ❤️
Amazing! That way, we can keep our fingers crossed for the army to return. But for the time being, they had their last event where they shared their final moments together. The army is now transforming into a fun community.
With this, we would like to wish the Silver Empire’s leaders and troops the best of luck in their future endeavours.
