For clarification, this is a community hub—
not a clan
—for the Clan Wars mini-game.

Events Sundays, 7:00pm Eastern/11:00pm GMT. Come join us on World 302 in the Clan Wars Purple Portal lobby!


And just like that, we've been going strong TWO years. Thanks, everyone!
We are also now proudly partnered with the Gather community!

Welcome to the Clan Wars Community thread!

Love Clan Wars? Hate that the Purple Portal is typically empty? Well then, welcome aboard, for that's exactly the problem we’re here to address. Our goal is simple: create and bolster a friendly and competitive community around the Purple Portal wars, much like in the days of pre-EoC.

How will we accomplish this? Well, by hosting Clan Wars events and chats and encouraging players to join in and spread the word.

To do this, we'll need YOUR help! So if you fancy yourself a few skirmishes, or want to feel what it's like to gloat over the fallen masses you've slain, then please read on, spread the word and get your friends onboard, and most importantly, participate 'n have a blast.

Community and Participation


We're all just looking for a jolly good time, and in the spirit of that, anyone of any combat level is free to join. Whether you're a pure, a tank, a main…doesn't matter. Come join us, for we'd love to have your company!

And if anyone is interested in keeping the discussion going with likeminded people, we're open to the idea of launching a friend's chat channel.

Said chat would be free to use for anything from simple banter to arranging your own matches or other events.

Keep in mind that this is a community,
not a clan
! People can come and go as they please and there aren't any requirements to take part.

About Clan Wars


Clan wars is a SAFE PvP mini-game where two teams duke it out under rules agreed upon prior to the match. As the game is safe and has a nifty ammo return post-match for rangers, going all out is highly encouraged.

Or in layman's terms: Come at me, br0.

The mini-game boasts a plethora of game modes, arenas, and mostly self-explanatory rule configurations. There's also a sweet spectator mode, so even if you get knocked out, you can still help your allies a la mission control style.

For those seeking more information, check out the brief game mode summaries below.

Last Team Standing
| Respawns:
No


Two teams, no respawns. A clear-cut fight that doesn't end until one team is wiped off the map—literally.

Kill Count
| Respawns:
Yes


One giant cesspool of chaos. The first team to rack up their body count to the number stated wins.

King of the Hill
| Respawns:
Yes


Hold down the fort where the game tells you to. Doing so accrues points, and the more teammates aiding the fort holding simultaneously means more points. Just be wary that the fort is mobile and notorious for moving the second you reach it. Play on Gridlock for the best experience. ;)

Oddskull
| Respawns:
Yes


Grab the skull and run for cover! Holding the skull is the only way to obtain points, so you had best be on good terms with your teammates since you'll be defenseless. Well, you could always bash someone over the head with the thing.

Timed Deathmatch
| Respawns:
Yes


Like Kill Count, though with a time delimiter rather than a score goal. Victory goes to the team that made the most players kneel within in the time limit.

Let's All Have a Good Time


Again, that's what we're all here for. We all know that we'll clash, bicker at one another, and possibly throw insults, but let's do our best to keep it as nonpersonal as possible.

Now raise up your weapons guys, and let's have a heck of a time!

And, as for this thread, feel free to use it for any discussion relating to the community and mini-game.

The 1v1 Initiative


Single-way combat. Purple Portal doesn't have it. We want that changed.

It might sound odd to want single-way combat in a mini-game called "Clan Wars," but truth be told, not only does it add variety to the fighting, that's how it originally was. Maps used to be a mix of single-way and multi-way combat zones. These zones add a whole new strategic element to wars and also give those remaining stragglers a fighting chance against overwhelming odds.

Interestingly enough, there is a rule setting—"PJ Timer"—that only works in single-way combat zones. It prevents people from, well, from PJing. It'd be nice to actually get some use out of this rule!

In order to get this change, we'll need the help of everyone
. We'll be tweeting Jagex Mods to try and get it answered in the Q&A livestream and spreading the word so that it can receive a positive voting response. Additionally, we've managed to snag two spots on the first page of the new Small Suggestions Thread.
If everyone can post there in favor of it, our message might get across to Jagex quicker
!

We saw it before the community's formation, and we saw it during our first event; the community has spoken:
We want single-way combat zones
!

Let's make this happen!

----

Mod Archie has been tweeted! Message sent:

"Can we get single-way combat zones on some of the Clan Wars maps? 'Pj Timer' rule does nothing because there aren't any!"

If replied to, his reply will be put here. Feel free to re-tweet the above message.

UPDATE:

Mod Ash has acknowledged the lack of single-way combat zones in Purple Portal Clan Wars. It's also been made clear to him that the PJ Timer rules does nothing, since there aren't any single-way combat zones.

UPDATE 2:

Heard today that 1v1 zones in Clan Wars were brought up in a Q&A!

Hey Ace,

We're not particularly aiming for official wars to be done through this. However, I'd like to discuss this further with you, so if you could add me in-game, we can do just that. It'll be easier for both of us to get our points across with an active conversation rather than one via forum posts.

Thanks!

Big shout-out of thanks to Nomads' Light!

I wholeheartedly agree with Shaby15 in that OSRS needs Safe-PvP activities restored, in particular Clan Wars. I had stopped playing this game quite a few times for the reasons he brought up:

- What's the point of grinding my stats if I have nowhere to use them?

- Why get all this great gear? There's nowhere to use it, either!

Here's to hoping we can prevent other players from falling into that line of thinking and bring about the restoration of a great pastime.

I'm now at Clan Wars. Hope to see you all soon!

Pretty much what Espeonite said. I'll host a team and someone else will host the other. We'll swap players freely. Don't feel obligated to stay in one team.

Others could make their own teams as well, but let's try to not get too divided.

The first event has concluded and it was a smashing success!

We're really happy to see the event lasting as long as it did, clocking in at just a little over two hours and bringing in 35 simultaneous participants at its peak.

Hope everyone had a good time! Hope to see you at the next one!

Details on the next event and the 1v1 Initiative have been posted!
Next event is Saturday, May 9, 7pm EST (12am GMT) on world 302
. We'll meet in the Clan Wars lobby.

Oh, and before I forget: We all learned a valuable lesson...

...
never
play King of the Hill on 750 or higher points. That match took FOREVER!

There have been others who have shown interest in doing F2P wars. It is a possibility for the future!

That said, F2P is still relatively new. That raises some concerns on participation count. I'll bring the idea up at our upcoming event and see if others agree.

Like F2P, we're also still new. As we keep growing, so to will our schedule and event variety.

We just make teams then and there. Clans are welcome to join in, though. We're not sticklers about making people go to one team or the other, just so long as there's at least a little balance between them.

The clans Nomad's Light and A New Beginning have been participating.

Please don't bring the connection/server issue frustration into this thread. Connection/server issues will be resolved eventually. Don't keep fanning the fire around them.

These Clan Wars events have been going on for a month now and will continue to do so.

Apologies, guys! On Saturday at around 2:30pm EST, my ISP had a unit overload that they didn't tend to until this morning due to it having been a holiday weekend.

Right?! Those were some intense matches. I think Oddskull might be my new favorite game mode.

New event information posted! Please note that I will NOT be present during this next event, as my entire weekend is booked. Don't let that stop you from cracking a few skulls though! Or carrying them while fleeing for your life. :P

That said, it's fantastic that you all were able to have a successful event in my absence. I should be able to attend this weekend's event, though it is technically still up in the air.

I'm posting another event, even though it is already super late into the week.

^Veteran Clan Wars guy right there. Known him for a while.

Had an interesting time today at the Fight Pits. Was certainly neat to revisit an old mini-game with a bunch of people, even if they did all use food.

Did work on them all for sure. :P Won four matches.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say there's family stuff to attend to this evening. Sorry for the late announcement of this, but I won't be able to make it to tonight's event.

Hey Memberr,

Apologies for not noticing your message. Yes, we will be meeting on World 302 even if we decide to go to the Tournament server.

This holds true for the event coming up this Saturday as well. Here are the details:

Saturday, July 18, 7:00pm Eastern Time (11:00pm GMT)
Clan Wars Purple Portal Lobby
World 302
(Will meet on World 302 even if we decide to go to the Tournament server)

Hope to have you there!

Also, a shout-out to Espeonite, Gkar, Dylann c, and Imperium. Our team did pretty darn good on the Tournament server this past weekend!

Let's hold down the fort (literally) next time as well, going straight for the loom room in Lumbridge Castle and the gardener's house in Falador Park. Do mind the doorways though...they're used to bottleneck the team—as in their team, not ours! Haha! :P

Hey guys!

Been ages. Will start with a thanks to GKar and Espeonite for bumping this thread.

Few things I want to touch on regarding the recent lack of events.

I've been busy on Saturdays for the past month or so. I should have better informed of those instances, and I apologize for that. When I first set up this schedule for Saturdays at 7pm, things were at a point where that worked out perfectly...

...and on that topic, I'd like to suggest a schedule change. I talked to GKar about this a while back, and think it's about time to share those thoughts with everyone.

Schedule change:

from: Saturdays, 7pm Eastern

to: Sundays, 8pm Eastern


In terms of overall availability for everyone, I think this would work out better. That said, I in no way want to speak for everyone, so please feel free to give your thoughts!

Also, good event tonight! I'll be starting the official schedule again, and as of now we are moved to Sundays at 8pm Eastern.

You're on, Hustler! Feel free to have your team show up Sunday at 8pm Eastern time. :P Though keep in mind we are not a clan, but rather a team comprised of anyone who decides to show up and join in.

Also guys, another great event this past Sunday. Ashy's team really brought the heat this time, having a total of 16 people at one point...

And yet we somehow managed to win! Well, I mean, they won more times, but still! :D

If you guys could post on the QoL updates thread requesting Falador Park and Lumbridge Castle (in its original state, with multiple floors) maps for Clan Wars, as well as for 1v1 maps, it'd be great! Here's the thread:

Thanks for the bumps, GKar.

Another good event the other night. Was interesting seeing everyone around the same combat level!

Anywho, new information below:

Sunday, February 7, 8:00pm Eastern Time (1:00am GMT)
Clan Wars Purple Portal Lobby
World 302


I'm aware that this is Superbowl Sunday. We'll see how things go!

To be honest though, the real Superbowl is Oddskull on Gridlock or Ethereal. Amirite? You need not answer that, since it's obviously true. :P

Thinking about this made me remember the Clan Citadel mapmaker. Anyone remember that thing? I once built RuneScape soccer in that. It was a blast!

If they ever release Citadels again, with the mapmaker, we'll definitely be having a RuneScape soccer event.

Tournament worlds are open again. Note some changes:

-White Portal (FFA) added.
-No longer require 5 players to start a war, and can have more than 5 players on a team.

So if desired, we could truly host an event on there this time versus not being able to before due to the team limit.

Thoughts?

Also, I posted on the updated thread regarding single-way combat zones and the additional maps being added to the main game's Clan Wars. Let's see if they again respond. Feel free to also post it. Here's the thread:

Did a few low-level skirmishes on the Tournament Worlds. Would anyone be interested in doing these sometime? They actually turned out to be rather fun! (Them 10 hp max rangers though...)

New event details below!

We'll decide at the event whether or not we will go to a tournament world.

Thanks for responding to that, GKar.

GMT is currently +4 hours onto Eastern. This fluctuates with Daylight's Savings, however (in fact, the whole thing gets changed to BST during the summer months. Confusing!). It was, until the time changed a few weeks back, +5 hours.

Our events are at 8pm Eastern. That's 12am GMT.

Perhaps I should put one of those spiffy time charts on the front page.

Good turnout at the event tonight. We had over ten new faces join us from our Reddit campaigns. Played some intense games of Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, and Oddskull. Oh, Oddskull...the pile-train was real, and it was crazy.

Event tonight!

Last event, we took over World 666 Falador for four whole hours. Hundreds of players fell to us, and by the time we all signed off, our team of ten had five Green Partyhats from Durial.

I wish I could say, "We'll be doing it again," but they took World 666 down...

So back to Purple Portal wars! (Dang, what I wouldn't give for that Falador map to be added to the Purple Portal.)

Heya, Saint!

We're not exactly a full "team" per say, as we're a group of people who divide amongst ourselves for wars every Sunday. That said, we'd love to have your clan be a part of the fun!

I'll add you to my friend's list and try to reach out whenever I see you online; we can talk in further detail then.

In other news...

68 total events. Whew! Next event:

As always, thank you GKar for bumping and responding to people!

Hey Taylor,

We mostly partake in casual, unorganized wars. While we are a community, a lot of us are from varying clans or not in clans at all. We play on Sundays at 8pm Eastern. If that does not conflict with your war schedules, we would absolutely love to have you all drop in for some wars.

These are some old gifs, but here's the kind of battling we do:





Just here to have fun, so anyone can do whatever they want. That doesn't mean we don't strategize at all, as we do quite a bit once things get heated up.

We just wrapped up a rather large event and it was a blast. We often play Oddskull and King of the Hill modes too, things you'll likely never find played anywhere else. Here's Oddskull in action:



Would love if you could let your regulars know about us! Surely a few of them would like to partake in chaotic wars like the glory days of pre-EoC!

Thanks for the bumps, guys.

Ezpeon:

I'm always open to suggestions to better the events, and though we've been going strong in dedicated players rather than quantity of players, bringing in more is definitely a goal we all should strive for. I know you've only just started recently attending again after a break, but it's pretty much the same as it was prior.

Some events we have 20 - 30 people, some events we have 5 - 10. The average seems to be 12, which allows for more intricate fights...as long as we can balance the teams (we know how that goes sometimes!)

Discord has been brought up by a few people. One of the chats we currently use does have a Discord channel, but as you also mentioned, moving back to dedicated chats might be something to explore. We started with that idea to begin with, but quickly went to using established clans as the chats to help spread the word and entice those loitering in the chats to come join in; it worked quite well in that regard.

Let's talk more about these proposed changes at greater length when we next sync up in-game, including the possible bi-weekly shift.

If anyone else has thoughts, please share them.

And just to clarify:
As of this post, NOTHING has changed.
Should something change, it will be put on the front page of the thread and I'll notify in-game those of you that I can, including the chats we currently use.

So we've opened a Discord. Link has been on the front page for a week or two now, but figured I'd put it here for anyone jumping to the newest post:

Our new Discord chat
:
https://discord.gg/KEN3MpK


This chat is open to anyone who wishes to join and be a part of these events. I would like to again stress that we are NOT a clan. We use this Discord simply to keep in touch and for chatting during events.

Hope you join us!
