  1. https://www.sharkbrew.com/?/league/clans/wilderness What do you think? Should number of points be reduced? What would be a suitable timeframe & points decay mechanism?
  2. Introduction COTM/CWL/WCOTM used to be a household name for clans looking to compare their performance and activity in Clan Wars and Wilderness. You can find the origins with (former) sharkbrew rank @Bradenwho came up with the idea of tracking clan wars preps during an era where prep activity had all but collapsed. Thanks to his system, there was a noticeable increase in clan wars activity. Over the years, we have seen many changes, but the hardest hit so far was the migration of Sharkbrew from IPB3 to IPB4 in 2018. This had rendered all of our systems obsolete, and combined with my increased irl workload, I was not able to code up a replacement... until today: League System I have limited the number of dependencies with IPB, therefore we can foresee this system being used for many years to come! https://www.sharkbrew.com/?/league/clans/cwars https://www.sharkbrew.com/?/league/clans/wilderness This is a unified system that tracks both clan wars and wilderness. The system is based on weighted point values as shown here: Clan Wars This system tracks all preps(20v20+) and fullouts. Unlike previous systems, we award points based on rounds won. The formula goes as follows: For winners: points gained: numbers_of_rounds_won * 1.00(winner points) * 3 For the losers points lost: (total_number_of_rounds - number_of_rounds_won) * -0.75 * 3 To mitigate the effects of a loss, the losing clan will not lose as much points as gained by the winning clan. Also because we are counting rounds won, winning at least 1 round in a 3 round prep can prevent you from losing a lot of points! Also all preps are capped at 5 rounds to deter point farming. First to 25/50/100 counts as 1 round. Wilderness The goal of tracking wilderness activity ties into Sharkbrew future plans of advertising pure/main community events to the greater public with the help of sharkbrew's twitter account. This system is designed to demonstrate which clans have the most activity. I will post a topic in the future detailing our plans. There are no winners or losers; every topic(midweek/weekend counts). The higher the opts, the more points your clan will receive! Midweek: opts/10 * 0.2 * 3 Weekend: opts/10 * 1.50 * 3 When will the system start? I will be counting all events starting from the 18th of august onwards. How do I participate? For now, create a clan group: https://www.sharkbrew.com/community/index.php?/gc/cat/1-runescape-clans/ Then PM me on discord to be added to the system. I am working out kinks to the system. Promotions With these new systems up come with new promotions: @Break- Overseer- As one of our senior ranks I am thankful for your loyalty to this site. You been with Sharkbrew and by my side through Sharkbrew's ups and falls, and I thoroughly appreciate your presence on this site. You have put in a great amount of work into countless various systems that the sharkbrew community, and this new rank is the cumulative of everything your had done. @Yak- Mediator - Inspite of your many IRL commitments, you have dedicated yourself to the management and upkeep of the discord. Your activity has been excellent and I would like to see you achieve more with this rank With this out of the way, Sharkbrew is looking for new ranks to help us propel this community into the next phase. Within the next 2 weeks, we are going to promote no less than 6 new gatekeepers to help us run various systems. If you have already applied, please take note of your rank application topic link as I will need you to reply to a future topic indicating your continued interest at being a rank of this site. If you haven't applied, please feel free to apply by clicking the link at the top of this site
  3. Community Advisor Rank As I am nearly complete with the homepage, I will be reintroducing the tracking of clan wars and wilderness events on the home page: The main goal is to showcase your clan, with secondary objectives of demonstrating the activity of the pure/main clanning scene to the rest of the community. I will elaborate on our strategy in the near future, but without getting sidetracked too much, We would like to introduce a new rank initiative. @Community Advisor We always try to maintain a fair balance of ranks from different clans in the Sharkbrew rank team. This unfortunately has the side effect of not being able to hear suggestions or perspective from talented community members. Furthermore, as our rank team members are getting older, majority of us have moved on from this game or are not as active as we used to be. This is a detriment as we are not in tune with the issues plaguing the scene. Thus I am introducing this new rank to help us better connect with the community to learn pressing issues that need addressing. You can find more details here: Anyone can apply, and as long as they meet and maintain the requirements, they would be ranked up.
  4. Owing to prior mistakes that we had made, Sharkbrew is shifting some of our management stance from top down to a more community focused strategy. There are plenty of members in the community with bright ideas on how we can work together to promote the PvP and clanning the agenda, so the purpose of this forum is to provide a dedicated public discourse where we can suggest,share, validate, and improve on ideas. One of the problems I personally face is receiving quite a number of feedback via discord DM, however I am handicapped by the inability to prove veracity of the problems. [email protected] Advisorrank serves to bridge the gap between the community and sharkbrew ranks who made not be aware of the ongoing paradigm shifts in the scene. The core duties of the advisor rank are and not limited to: Identifying areas of improvement in the community or sharkbrew Creating topics in "Community Round Table" and encouraging members of the community to address said issue Working with sharkbrew ranks to implement said solutions Anyone can apply and receive the ranks once they meet the prerequisite number of community votes. This rank has no powers, or any restrictions. It simply is just a recognition of an individual's perceived recognition by the community.
  5. Apply here https://www.sharkbrew.com/community/index.php?/application/form/7-become-a-community-advisor/ When your application topic has been posted here, you need at least 100 community votes with 66.66% majority yes votes before your application is accepted You will receive your Community Advisor rank on forums and on discord Maintaining your rank We don't wish to place any hard number, but you have to actively engage the community and the Sharkbrew rank team, and we will be observing activity on forums and in discord. We will reach out to you if we haven't seen you in a while but if you remain unresponsive, sharkbrew reserves the right to take away your rank.
  6. Congrats to all the clans who have participated. Unfortunately as the tournament start, 2 out of the 5/6 clans participating closed. This had greatly scaled down the competitiveness of the competition. Regardless, congratulations to the Fatality and Supremacy who won each of their respective categories! Apologies for the delay, I was not able to make the sig until I got home Supremacy: Fatality(Awaiting prep pics):

  10. In-spite of the warning message displayed at the beginning of the registration page: I noticed users still using seemingly legitimate email address that may be linked to RS accounts, therefore I decided to create a system to encrypt all email address at all levels on sharkbrew- front end Admin control panel And finally at the database level end Users will still be able to receive emails, however neither myself nor any of my staff or admins can see the legitimate email addres-only the encrypted one. **Note** When changing your email address, you will momentarily see your actual email, please give it 1-2 minutes for my automated script to discover your email and to issue you your encrypted address
