Update: Read the ENTIRE post, please
CPR has recently announced they will be relaunching. I have many doubts about this new iteration and I will explain why. Everyone who has played CPR knows what I’m talking about – rampant lying, too many excuses, mismoderation and abuse. The last two months were very eventful, and I’d like to share with you all what has happened, and bring up questions that none of us have the answer to. So, here’s a small recap:
-CPR claims they are shutting down.
-CPR says they are no longer shutting down.
-CPR claims they are shutting down.
-CPR shuts down due to security issues.
-CPR says they have “deleted their database”, meaning all penguins have been erased.
-CPR twitter states there will be a relaunch, saying people can still use their old penguins.
Some people might have had to reread that a few times, because to be honest it’s quite nauseating. But what most people haven’t looked into (I have) is what happened following their shutdown.
What they don’t want you to know:
When CPRewritten shutdown, much of their staff quickly jumped to Pengur, a different CPPS. After a month of failure (really, who here has played pengur lol?), they have announced the reopening of CPR. This raises a few concerns. For one, this shows that their staff gives up completely after a month, and also that the same staff who claimed CPR was shutdown for “security reasons”, and their concern for themselves, may be hiding something from us. Remember, they shutdown CPR after receiving many hacking threats, which can be a viable reason to shutdown. However, exactly how true are these claims? Why move to another CPPS, and after a month of failure, reopen the game you said you COMPLETELY deleted (claimed they deleted their database, meaning every penguin would be effectively erased.)
Don’t believe Pengur is made by the same staff from CPR? Look here:
I was originally going to highlight everyone in the picture who was former CPR staff, but realized it’s literally everyone.
Here is proof we were told CPR’s database had been deleted:
What this means: The database contains all user information, meaning every account ever made. In order to relaunch CPR after this point, it would require everyone to re-register, collect all of their items and coins again, etc. There is no going back after doing this. This was done, or at least, should have been done, for security reasons.
And here’s them saying our penguins are still usable:
Some of you may be asking: why is this a problem? Isn’t it good we can keep our accounts?
No. CPR shutdown because of HACKING THREATS, they said they did it for OUR safety and their own. They said they deleted the database so we would have nothing to worry about, and to prove they really aren’t coming back. How do you feel knowing that had they been hacked, in a time where it seem very likely, your information could have been very easily stolen due to a lie?
I also found something else which turned out to be very interesting –
It’s all about the money
We were told that there were many people at risk, whether it was from the swatting threats or hacking threats. But when looking at CPR’s twitter, I noticed that they were asked multiple times if whether or not they would shutdown any time soon. They responded with “we have enough funding, so no” each time. So, this brings up a question: if CPR never was concerned with money (at least publicly) during their shutdown, what does it have to do with it staying up now? Was money the REAL reason why CPR shutdown, not the privacy concerns? It seems like we have been lied to, yet again.
I would also like to mention the abuse:
RPF and other groups that organized on CPR had been given a strict set of rules to follow. We complied. Despite this, we were abused constantly by the staff – kicked, verbally insulted, and even banned on several occasions. Not even on the last day of their existence did they let us enjoy the Waddle On party with other members of the community. They completely despised us, and did not consider us apart of their community, despite being very active and friendly players of their game.
CPR shuts down with privacy concerns as the primary factor. Money was not mentioned. They claimed they deleted their database and there is no going back. After this, the staff move to a different CPPS and try their luck there. However, after failing to make anything out of nothing, exactly one month later they announce the reboot of CPR. They say that they have enough funds to restart, indicating they didn’t have enough funds at the time of their shutdown. They also reveal their database really wasn’t deleted, meaning we were lied to.
Remember, this is the same CPPS who sets themselves many deadlines and fails to reach all of them. This is the same CPPS who has played with our emotions on hundreds of occasions. Same CPPS who has abused us countlessly, and failed to understand that we were putting up with their abuse to continue playing their game. Is a game who says a very bold Goodbye, works on another, and then decides to come back a month later one who we want to rely on?
None of it adds up or makes sense, and the community wants answers. So, on behalf of not just RPF – but everyone who has ever played CPR, we want a statement addressing this post and the contents in its entirety.
Until we get this, I suggest nobody plays CPR upon its release. They have lied to us over and over again. They are an UNSTABLE game with unstable staff members. RPF will remain at CPU for the foreseeable future.
I’ll see you on the battlefield,
