This week’s Club Penguin Discussion is all about Rooms. Club Penguin is made up of rooms. There are 48 rooms scattered around the island. While all of these rooms aren’t as popular as others, you will still see some penguins in them on crowded servers. I wrote an in-depth discussion about Club Penguin’s Parties back in June. You can view that by clicking here. Club Penguin has always decorated some of their party rooms.
Let’s go back in time to the Music Jam 2009. Back then, Club Penguin only had 32 rooms. Out of those, 22 rooms were decorated. 75% of all the rooms on Club Penguin had some sort of decoration. That’s pretty incredible considering what today’s standards for parties are. Even the hidden rooms like the Cave had some sort of decoration.
Pretty much every party in 2009 had a TON of decorations. April Fools 2009, was amazing in terms of decorations. Out of the 32 rooms Club Penguin had at that time,
24 rooms were decorated.
One of my all time favorite rooms was at this party. The Box Store. When was the last time you saw this room?
As you can tell, something changed. Club Penguin threw some amazing and most memorable parties in 2012, like Operation Blackout. That party right there in my opinion, was the best party Club Penguin has ever thrown. A ton of rooms were decorated and contributed to the story very well. One of my favorite rooms during the party was Herbert’s Paradise room. I mean, just look at the DETAILS! Its AMAZING!
Operation Blackout also had this feature where the rooms would get darker, colder, and more snow would fall as time gone by.
LOOK AT THOSE ROOMS. They blend in with the story so well, and are just breathtaking. When was the last time you saw parties that had this room changing feature? I can’t think of any since this party…
Now let’s go to modern day parties. In my opinion, this was Club Penguin’s worst year of parties. Last year’s parties weren’t that good either. But really, this year’s parties were such a letdown. Let’s talk about this year’s Music Jam. I wouldn’t even call it a “Music Jam”. Remember how I was talking about 2009’s Music Jam, and how it had 22 rooms decorated? Well, this year’s Music Jam had a “whopping” 7 rooms decorated. 7 rooms out of the 48 rooms Club Penguin currently has. That is horrible.
The picture below shows off some rooms that are HARDLY ever touched anymore. The Iceberg is a very popular room on Club Penguin, and hasn’t been properly decorated since last year’s Holiday Party. I wouldn’t even really count that either, because they reused the room decoration… 😛
When will we see these rooms be properly decorated again? Back in 2009, most of these rooms WERE decorated. What happened?
Club Penguin threw a Penguin Cup party in June. This party in my opinion wasn’t good. It lacked content, story, fun, and DECORATIONS. Only 8 rooms were decorated and those were the “popular” rooms. Even the Town was poorly decorated. All they did was put out flags and changed the pavement. I could of seen Club Penguin doing something with the teams. They could of decorated each building to match a team. The Coffee Shop could be painted green and maybe even glow? They could of also put a Space Squid on the building. The same goes for the rest of the buildings. And since there were 4 teams, they could of put some signs on trees showing off the team that wouldn’t be on a building. I just feel like they cheaped out when decorating Club Penguin’s most popular room…
Okay so let’s face it. Something changed. Party decorations are nowhere close to how they used to be. Out of the 48 rooms on Club Penguin, only around 10 are decorated. Sometimes even less as seen with the Music Jam, and the Penguin Cup. What happened Club Penguin? I would think you would change something even if it weren’t the decorations. Content? Story? Nope. There has been no positive change in parties since Operation Blackout. I think everyone agrees with me that Club Penguin’s parties aren’t anywhere close to where they used to be and are ultimately one word. Disappointment.
Club Penguin HAS to change the way they make their parties. They are capable of doing so. Why are only 10 rooms decorated when there used to be 20+ rooms only a few years ago? Why has the content fallen so dramatically? I mean, even a younger kid who has been playing since 2011 could see a huge drop in everything.
I would like to see MORE rooms decorated, but they don’t have to be decorated like the Town would. Add some props, change the flooring or coloring, but decorate more rooms than just the basic ones. You were capable of decorating 20+ rooms just a few years ago, why can’t you do that again?
If Club Penguin is always listening (as they say they always are) why haven’t they done anything? Parties have gone downhill since 2013 and I’m not the only one upset about this. Many penguins are. Yet the truth is, Club Penguin isn’t listening to this aspect which happens to be a HUGE deal. Parties are Club Penguin.
Club Penguin, please change.
