Dear Runescapers Past and Present,

Please join me in wishing The Gladiatorz Clan a happy 11th birthday!

Eleven years ago today, Joe Jenninz, Jerico, and Blaze Mace officially founded our clan, and inexorably changed the course of Runescape's Clan-world. Today we stand as the second longest-running clan in Runescape, next to our long time friends and allies through the years, 'The' Clan.

Having been a Gladiator since a few weeks after the clan was founded, and having been a Runescaper since day one, I can honestly say that is has been a blast. The Gladiatorz' top notch community has really been more of an online-family for many of us. Looking on Runescape as I write this, I see people playing who have been in our clan ranging from 11 years to 1 day. We have an enduring legacy of warring, fun, and community, and would like to take this opportunity to thank the rest of the clan community— friends or enemies, new or old— for helping make Runescape as fun as it has been for us.

To celebrate this year, we hosted a variety of celebratory events, both PvP and general fun events. A recap of our week-long PvP celebration leading up to our birthday can be found here. If you happen to be on world 66 this evening, you may also find us burning down some RS cities to mark the conclusion of our 11th Birthday celebrations!

Looking forward to sharing the next 11 years with you,
The Gladiatorz Clan

For your enjoyment, here is an assortment of pictures from throughout our 11 years:


Gladz prep for an official war in RS Classic shortly after rune went on sale in the champions guild (not my picture, I don't know who the "me" is).

Gladz' (and thus Runescape's) first ever "Firefest" event.

The legendary "Ride of the Rohirrim" theatrical war tactic in the last official war RS Classic ever saw: The Gladiatorz vs Zeonic Force. (There's a great story behind this).

In 2006, Gladz defeated DS to become the #1 warring clan in Runescape (this was before Jagex removed random events from the wilderness, and our 220 person pile was plagued by randoms while waiting for DS to show up.

GLADIATORZ VS. DARK SLAYERS
Winner: Gladiatorz
Date: March 4, 2006
Location:
Information: The Gladiatorz prepped for this war for months beforehand with the leadership constantly promising an impending war. When the war was finally announced, Gladz had 3 weeks to prepare, practice events were hosted every day, often having 50+ people attend a simple iron war. When March 4th rolled around, the fighters gathered north of varrock castle, and as the departure time neared, options maxed at 399, and eventually reached up to 220 able-bodied fighters. Arguably the biggest turnout in Gladz' history. At the end of the war, Gladz claimed victory with more than 50 members remaining and took the #1 warring rank by force.


Celebrating our Gladz vs DS win:

Must have drowned in the ocean of posts in this forum.

Belated grats, Gladz. :)

You're accusing me of bigotry, how ironic. It's a nice attempt at argument, but your responses are facile and asinine, if not diatribe. Who's arrogant now?

You could try their forums instead of a year old thread. :P
