It's on Twitter. It's on YouTube. It's even on Club Penguin itself. The one little sentence that annoys me the most - "Disney ruined Club Penguin". Good Lord, every time someone says that I just want to repeatedly bang my head up against the wall. "Disney ruined Club Penguin". It's funny, because I always thought Disney helped Club Penguin. Here, let me explain - if it wasn't for Disney, this little online world you love to play probably wouldn't be here right now. Oh, it's true. It's dang true. You know, there's a reason why New Horizon Interactive sold Club Penguin to Disney - because their virtual world was getting too big for them to handle. Club Penguin started with 15,000 players, and by March of 2006, that number reached up to 1.4 million! By the time Club Penguin was two years old, it had reached 3.9 million players! That's impressive! As Club Penguin grew, it attracted people from foreign countries, whose language was not supported in the game. Disney helped Club Penguin add those languages that weren't supported so foreigners could join the fun. Disney also helped Club Penguin get more employees, which was needed because as the virtual world got bigger, it needed more moderators, customer support employees, etc. There are other good things Disney did for Club Penguin, too. Toys are an example of this. Disney helped Club Penguin launch their very first toy line. Yes, that means before Disney bought Club Penguin, there were no plush toys. You guys do love Club Penguin plush toys, right? Right. Disney has done a lot of good things for Club Penguin. Sure, they've done some not so good things, too. Like takeovers. I'll admit, I hate the idea of takeovers, but if you look at how many new players takeovers attract, you'd keep having them too.
Here's a little quick story I want to share with all of you - I was on Club Penguin once and found a big crowd of people in the Town complaining about how Disney ruined CP. I decided to check some of their stamp books, to see when their first pin was collected, and I literally started laughing a little bit. Why? Judging by the pins in their stamp book, most of the people complaining joined Club Penguin AFTER Disney bought it! Hardly any of the complainers joined CP before Disney took over. Now, new players complaining, but hardly any old players complaining? That doesn't sound right. Seriously, be happy Club Penguin is still here, because if Disney hadn't bought it, like I said above, it probably wouldn't still be here.
Disney is helping Club Penguin, not ruining it. I hope I got my point clear. Now, it's your turn. Do you agree with me when I say Disney is helping Club Penguin? Why or why not? The comments section is down below, you know what to do. ;)
