> I am proud to announce this week's news:

> First: The new banner has been chosen!!! Congratulations to it's author: Dylan yes1.gif

> Second: Look at our new and shiny recruitment topic! (next post) With images from our members, including Tomas_Speed's ones (very good ones, btw yes1.gif)

> Third: No way! It cannot be! Could it? What's that? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it Superman? NOOOO!!!! OMG! Ancient Legion has raised its minimum requirements!!!!
> We are now requiring new members to be 85 f2p combat upwards. The current members will not have to reach 85 combat if they are currently under 85 (although current trial members might have to get it before they are accepted as Full Members), and we can still accept lower levels if ther are referred to AL by one of our current members, so you can still ask your friends to join yes1.gif. Bear in mind this is still in 'beta' stage, which means we can still go back to 75 combat if 85 proves to be too high or too demanding.

> Please discuss the new banner, the new recruitment topic and the reqs change.

What is Ancient Legion?
Ancient Legion was founded on April 15th, 2008 by two brothers. Since then, AL has been an always growing community, with an average of 5~10 new members per month. We have been estabilishing alliances with major clans on Runescape clanning community as we climb the ranks.
AL has as some of their main purpose being a friendly commuity, as well becoming notable among other clans.

Why should you join AL?

We could write a whole paragraph on how we focus on warring/skilling or being a friendly community. But that's what all other clans are... All their intro paragraphs say so... But we are different...
Don't misread it though: We are indeed a friendly community, but what makes AL unique?
  • Our rules are enforced by various means, whether it be on the Clan Chat or the Forums. Many clans crumble for lack of rule enforcement. We don't.
  • We are very active indeed. Some clans schedule their 1~2 events/week, or 1~2 wars/month. We don't. We schedule form 4~5 events/week (not counting short-notice events) and a constant of 1 warring (or war practice) per week. You won't find a friendly community with that rate of warring, and by joining Ancient Legion, you won't have to decide between activity and community.
  • Although most of our events are F2P, we do schedule P2P events, and even a newbie trial member can schedule and request a headline for their own event, whether it be a minigame or a made up game.
  • We have medium combat requirements (see below) and low item requirements, making it easy to become a Full Member once accepted.
  • As every Runescape player, we strive for recognition as well notableness from the other clans, and as such, if you want to become famous, help and be helped to reach that goal, we are the right place for you.
  • Other clans' staff are often offline or unreachable, or use their rank to get distance from the other members. In AL, our High Council members are as members as any other. They hardly use their rank powers, and are always accessible, willing to help or talk.
  • Feats on the clan are NOT unnoticed. We are one of the few clans that award Clan Award Points for each good feat you do on the clan. It doesn't have to be anything big. Great tanking, winning contests or even being accepted from Trial to Full member award you these points!


What do we do?
Most clans would say: Wars, Monster trips and PK trips... But that's always the same thing... We are better. We do:
  • Clan Wars
  • Monster Trips (KBD, KQ, Corp Beast, GWD)
  • PVP Trips, BH Trips
  • Week-lasting contests
  • Minigames such as (Fist of Guthix, Pest Control, the new Mobilising Armies)
  • Roach Hunts
  • Seasonal Clan Awards
  • Made up events (using the new Faruq Tools)
  • Occasional Funorb events and tournaments
  • Interclan duel tournaments
  • And if your favorite event is not there, you are free to schedule it. You don't need to ask an event coordinator to do it for you!

looks sharp, nice job arthur. banner looks good dylan, and nice job tomas with the pictures lol cool.gif

Posted by: King Arthur Jul 25 2009, 03:31 PM
> Jss has nothing to worry. Once he gets 75 combat he'll be promoted to full already.

Posted by: Lit Jul 25 2009, 03:34 PM
Well done with the Images. The rec topic is short and understandable, just as it should be.

Grats on winning the Banner Contests, Dylan. biggrin.gif

About the requirements: There will be always unhappy people. We try to keep those "unhappy people" to the minimum number as possible. For that reason I (and many others too I believe) offer myself to help you train your way to 85 Combat if you don't have it yet. Just drop me a PM here or in-game if you have questions or would like some training-company. wink.gif

Don't worry about the reqs, you'll see they are for the benefit of the clan sooner or later.

EDIT: Jss has been doing a good job lately, and I believe you all know how much effort he put in his training in the past days. You just don't worry Jss. smile.gif

Found a typo, it's in italics tongue.gif

Posted by: tubu1982 Jul 25 2009, 03:37 PM
not just jss... everyone. it took me almost a month of non stop slayer / cockroach training to get from 75-85. im not the most active of anyone but i am actually kind of active. i know we want to get higher members... but we should just try to appeal to the higher lvs, instead of making our requirements higher lv... also, i love the diversity of the clan. its what makes this clan the best! not just having lv 90-100... having 75-130's in it... it means events are a lot more fun and we can do some high lv events (gwd) and lower lv events. (cant think of one right now tongue.gif )

1. Great
2. Great
3. Great

Wow! Three great updates! I'm excited about this! biggrin.gif i'm about to recruit a level 74 who is a pretty neat guy, i plan on helping him out in getting 85 cb, or 75 as a start.

Posted by: Icewolf68 Jul 27 2009, 09:39 PM
I do believe that AL has finally reached the point at which reqs should be raised.... But I don't think 75 with referall is a great idea. To me it just seems a little unprofessional. I don't know, it's just my opinion.
I think if your going to officially raise the requirements, you sorta need to be strict and stick with them

Posted by: Dylan Jul 28 2009, 01:41 AM
maybe all the people under 85, but are already members just be reset to trial? this would affect me, but it seems reasonable, so we only have 85+ ppl at wars.

oh and btw, isnt golden only 84?

Well, its not bad that we have lower leel people at wars, cause even if they level 3 they can still tank and buy time for everyone else, so maybe only bar them from matched opts wars? it really doesnt make the clan worse to have more lower level people, so therefore i don't think we should bar <85 cbpeople from wars.

Posted by: stingster2 Jul 28 2009, 12:25 PM
great i like the new banner and i love the way that the clan be a higher and better clan with a requirement

Posted by: King Arthur Jul 28 2009, 05:10 PM
> We are not barring lower levelled players from Clan Wars. Every single member with the 'Full Member' rank is supposed to be on our mandatory wars. Every 'Trial Member' may come to Fun Wars. The new requirements were not set to segregate the current low levels from the higher levels. As I couldn't enforce it any more: The new requirements are applied to new members only.[/n]

> As for the 'referral' thing, that is needed because I know there are clanmembers that have friends they'd like to join AL so they can be on the same clan and enjoy the community better. That's why you can refer someone to the clan. Although [b]lying about your referral won't help you much as we'll ask your referrer about you
(Mwwhahahahahha!).

Wel, then the members have incentive to level. If they dont want to level, there not the kind of member we want in the clan.

Oh what the hell guys, I finally reach the requirements then you raise them...

Posted by: Wolfclaw104 Aug 1 2009, 09:37 AM
Wait, now I have to get 85 cb, to become a full member again?

^ Nope.

Only if you became a Trial Member after the requirements were highered.

Posted by: 101laxkid2 Aug 2 2009, 12:03 PM
What im saying is that they shouldnt be barred from wars... That makes no sense. And it will take 2 weeks of non stop training to get to 75-85 cb, so it would be unfair for members who are trying to reach the level and getting barred.
