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

And just like that, we've been going strong TWO years. Thanks, everyone!

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!
