The Gladiatorz Turn 11!

15 February 2012 - 10:11 PM

Posted Image

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' (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.

The Gladiatorz + 'The' Clan vs Corruption

07 May 2011 - 11:48 PM

At the beginning of the week The Gladiatorz, 'The' Clan, and Corruption agreed to a two-hour-cap PKRI. After an initial crash by Divine Forces, we hopped worlds, where DF showed up again. Then VR proceeded to clear them for us and the main event got underway with about equal options.
The rest is history! Right from the get go the pummeling began. In Edgeville 3+ Corruption could be seen returning for every member of 'The' or Gladz. We chased around constant regroups and showed off our transitioning skills.

Thank you for the relatively clean fight Corruption. It was a pleasure exchanging blows with such a large clan. To members of all clans: Please keep this topic clean. It was a good fight, we all had fun, and there is no need to flame.


Rules:
  • 2 Hour Cap
  • All Styles
  • Boundaries: Spiders to Gds Rocks
  • No Corrupt
  • No Dungeoneering
  • 7 Sniper Cap
  • 'The' + Gladz attack
  • No cape switching
Starting:

Gladz + 'The':

Corruption:

Immediate Ending:

Gladz + 'The': 231

The Gladiatorz + 'The' Clan: 10 Years and Going Strong!

Double 10th Anniversary Max-Out Event

03 January 2011 - 09:16 AM

January 4th, 2011 is the 10th anniversary of not only Runescape itself, but of my playing the game. From middle schooler to college graduate, from athlete to circus performer, my life has been a crazy ride. All through these past ten years, however, there has always been Runescape and The Gladiatorz Clan (who are celebrating their 10th anniversary next month).

Ten years later, it's time to max out my melee stats. Barring a few summers on the road without internet access, I've been slowly chipping away, level by level, at those 99s. If I remember correctly, I gained my first level in a melee skill the day the game was released by fighting my friend and others over and over again at the Lumbridge spawn spot (before it was a safe zone). When the wilderness was released in late 2001, over a period of years, I slowly gained levels by simultaneously training and pk'ing at the zombie graveyard and the ever popular hobgoblin mine with friends and clan-mates. After the release of slayer in Runescape 2, I have since trained melee almost exclusively by slaying.

It has been a long, slow road, and before I give the event details, I would like to give a special recognition to all of the generations of men and women from The Gladiatorz Clan. These friends and clan-mates have encouraged me all the way from a level 30 who showed up to his first clan meeting wearing iron and bronze gear that he smithed himself, to a level 121 (soon to be 122!) who can still barely smith anything above iron. Thank you— each and every one of you! It is for you that I have continued playing and training all these years.

Event Details:

What: Party in honor of my 10th anniversary on Runescape and the game itself. I will be maxing out attack, strength, and defense.

Day: Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Time: 7:00 pm EST / 12:00 am GMT (Jan 5th)

Location: The guards in front of Varrock Castle

World: Server 14

Clan Chat: Gladz Chat

Dress Code: If possible, please come in green or purple. Green for my hair and clan, and purple for those stylish clothes I've been wearing since day one.

I hope to see you there!
