Title: The Big Day is Here!

One year for Ancient Legion! bannana bannana bannana bannana

Exactly one year ago today, I created the forums, establishing Ancient Legion as an official clan and setting us down the path we're on today. Since then, we've been through thick and thin together, almost dying several times, yet today, we've emerged stronger than ever behind a dedicated staff and active member body. Some of our many accomplishments:

Extremely active forums. We've had 36,425 posts on these boards per year; nearly 100 posts per day. That's an INCREDIBLE sign of activity. The forums are a base for everything we do, and it's great to see everyone so involved and making an effort to stay active and stay informed.

Strong warring presence. With a war record of 16 wins to 6 losses, we've established ourselves as a clan who knows what it takes to get the job done in wars. We've beaten at least once every major mid-level clan I'm aware of: The Phoenix Legions, The Zamoradominerz, Sacred Champions, Imperial Forces, Knights Reflection, and others. This war record is truly something to be proud of.

Member commitment and activity. In eight of our last 10 wars, we've pulled more than 20 people to each. Many clans, especially those around our level, NEVER reach this mark, yet we do it consistently. This kind of dedication has allowed us to be extremely successful.

Member-run government. Although Ancient Legion has both leaders and a council, the majority of our issue-based decisions are made by members. Unlike some clans where what the leader says goes, Ancient Legion's members take an active role in shaping what the clan does, and in a recent event, voted against the leaders with such a majority the leaders withdrew their proposal.

These are some of the great things Ancient Legion has done in just one year. Let's continue the good work, become even stronger, friendlier, and wiser, and truly reach for the stars in the upcoming year ahead! Lamb and I have had a blast leading this clan, and hopefully we've done a good job, but without each and every one of you -- from Starwolf's dynamic activity to Damon's warring advice to Blompty's Jar Jar avatar -- we wouldn't be where we are today. I really hope each and every one of you decide to stay with us for a long time to come and help make Ancient Legion an even better place to clan.

Go Jar-Jar! (dances)

This is the best clan I've been involved in and most of the reason why I say that is because it's ran so efficiently. You guys have a system for gaining members and warring and it's an extremely effective system; to say the least. I haven't been here for most of that year, but I hope to be around for a lot of the next if not many more.

AL ftw!

101laxkid2 - April 16, 2009 02:57 AM (GMT)

1 month, and I already feel like I've found a perfect clan

Nice to see everyone still going, because the mosst important trait in a lcan is commitment, and AL has got lots of that.

I hope this isnt going to be AL's only birthday, but it sure will be a good one anyway :)

happy birthday, and

AL FTW!!!!
