The Light Troops of Club Penguin were created in March, 2011 by ioioluk. Before the Light Troops were created, they were formerly known as the Blue Miners Army. Ioioluk came up with the idea of creating the Light Troops with a couple of friends not knowing how powerful the Light Troops would become one day.
The army started off small, usually averaging sizes of 20+, it only took them a few months to get fully set up and by January 2012 they began averaging sizes of 50+ on Club Penguin.
In May 2012, the Light Troops began to grow stronger and stronger, at the time, the Army Of Club Penguin were considered the biggest army on Club Penguin. The Light Troops decided to challenge them and over the course of the next seven years, they fought it out in multiple wars. In May 2012, the Light Troops dethroned the Army of Club Penguin and were considered the number one army for quite some time.
In 2013, the Light Troops had hired many leaders, these include; Roberto, Waterkid100 (Waterkid101) and Spi101. At the time, the Pirates had merged into the Light Troops and the Light Troops had left their depression which they were in in early 2013. Throughout 2013, the Light Troops engaged in many wars with multiple armies, such as; The Army of Club Penguin, the Underground Mafias Army & the Dark Warriors.
