Do you think it is a succesful way to promote clan activity, if so to what extent?

What is the Jagex Cup
What is the Jagex Cup?

Hey guys,

What exactly is the Jagex Cup? It is, really, three different cups to try and capture all of the different aspects of the warring community within clans. The three different areas are Combat, Skilling and a combination of both. Each Cup has their own rules and conditions to stick by, they can be found under each of registration stickies. Here is a quick summary of each.

Combat Cup
The Combat Cup is a Cup held in the Free-to-Play Clan Wars minigame. There is no cap, no returning and is all action. Set on a level playing field where everyone with a good combat level can participate, it is going to be closely followed as a spectacle. GL & HF.

Skilling Cup
The Skilling Cup is a Cup to find out the best bunch of skillers within Gielinor! Set on an average based points system, not only will it find out who can skill the most but also who can skill with finesse. Set over 2 weeks, with a different skill each week, you will have to set aside 5 hours of the most hardcore skilling you have ever seen!

Combined Cup
The Combined Cup is set within the Stealing Creation minigame where both skillers and PK'ers clash to the sound of... thick clay! A game that won't just test how well you can either slay an opponent or chop the trees the fastest, it will also see how well your communication and team working skills are too. So grab 20 of your finest skillers and PK'ers and let the best 'Player-Skiller-Killers' win!

Rewards

What is more rewarding then knowing that you are the best skiller, PvP or combination of the two clan in the world? :)

We're looking at a whole host of different rewards but, as always with future updates, we're playing with our card close to our chest! Anything is possible and we'll be sure to keep you updated on this as the Cups progress.

Still interested? Then what are you waiting for! Click 'Up to Jagex Cup' at the bottom and register your clan for the Cup that you think you will win. Myself, and everyone at Jagex, look forward to seeing you compete.

Any further questions should be directed to the 'Jagex Cup Q & A' sticky at the top of this forum. We will answer anything that isn't listed here or anywhere else.


The Skilling Cup
Skilling Competition!


Hello and welcome to the registration thread for the Skilling Competition. This thread will remain open for 2 weeks and will close on 23rd March - 10pm GMT. Below is the way that the Cup will work and rules on registering members.

It's easy to sign up! Read all of the rules and if you want to sign up, hit 'Post Reply' with the template copied, paste the template in to the text box and fill it out. Go on then, what are you waiting for? :)

The Rules:

There will be two 1 week skilling sessions. Each week will have a different skill for the clan to work on and will be chosen live in-game.

• All clans wishing to participate should register in the registration thread within the next two weeks.
• Each clan must submit a list of 10 names prior to the first skill being named in the Skilling Cup thread. We will give a time of when we will be announcing the skill to give you time to get your members listed.
• The skills may consist of one of the 'Resource' skills. These skills are Woodcutting, Fishing, Mining, Thieving, Agility, Hunter or Runecrafting.
• You will be able to use the Grand Exchange in order to help you with the skill but not directly earn any experience.
• You must not use any Stealing Creation items or Brawling Gloves during your hours of skilling towards the Cup.
• Over the week, at least 8 of the registered 10 names must spend at least 5 hours on the selected skill in at least one hour blocks.
• During that session, the majority of XP gained must be in the selected skill.
• Before you start a skilling session, equip a chef’s hat (that will identify to us that you are starting a skilling session, this is essential).
• We will then take an average of all the time spent skilling and the XP gained to give each clan an average score per hour, the highest clan over both sessions wins.
• The week will run from 00:00 Monday to 23:59 Sunday in GMT.
• Any conflicts should be made in writing within 24 hours of the results being posted in the Jagex Cup Management thread.

Things to remember:
- A player must only be registered to one clan.
- The players registered will belong to that clan for the duration of the competition.
- Members can be added during the competition, as long as they weren't previously registered to another clan. In order to update your memberlist, make a post on the 'Jagex Cup Management' sticky.
- You must not edit your registration post. If you want to update your memberlist before the end of the registration period, make a new post.
- You can register a clan on behalf of people who can not post here. Please make it clear at the beginning of the post that you are posting on behalf of another clan *AND* you have their permission to do so.

Looks like fun, but I don't like how this can really affect our own competitions. :(

M T D - March 10, 2009 06:20 PM (GMT)
are we doing this guys?

starwolf_ftw - March 10, 2009 06:23 PM (GMT)
I don't think it's even legit. If it's on the forums, it's not really official unless it's in the frontpage of the site. I say we just stick out of it.

iamcoool11 - March 11, 2009 12:50 AM (GMT)
uh, star, did you bother to look at the topics? They were posted by JAGEX MODS. There is even a fourm for it!

starwolf_ftw - March 11, 2009 12:57 AM (GMT)
Yea I know, but I don't use RSOF. Too much crap happens there. Plus it all sounds too complicated. "Your experience will be tracked in one hour increments only while you are wearing a chef's hat" you know how stupid that sounds? lol

• Before you start a skilling session, equip a chef’s hat (that will identify to us that you are starting a skilling session, this is essential).

try reading better. you only equipt it at the start, and its for identification that your are doing it for the contest.

starwolf_ftw - March 11, 2009 01:35 AM (GMT)
It makes no sense though! If we participate, I won't be apart of it. Makes you feel like you are being watched as you skill.... Plus there are rules and regulations on what you CAN'T do!

iamcoool11 - March 11, 2009 01:50 AM (GMT)
well, there are only 10 people in the skilling contest anyways per clan. SO you dont need to be part of it. but i will fiyah!

damon - March 11, 2009 03:38 AM (GMT)
lol no cap... i guess we are really stuck with the skilling part cuz we probably wont last 2 seconds in a no cap war with one of those 120+ clans... >.< ugh

Kerkennah - March 11, 2009 03:43 AM (GMT)
I think we should do this, it will benefit our clan as it gets us more involved in the runescape world. I don't see why we wouldn't do this. we have nothing to lose. This will also attract more people to the clan.

iamcoool11 - March 11, 2009 03:59 AM (GMT)
ya, it probably will. im hoping for the best skillers for this-namely,#1 winners in our contests.

Seems interesting...
