    Worst/best pure clan names

    [NME] Enemy is greatest clan name of all time, whoever came up with that is a top tier genius (it was me). Epidemic wasnt too shabby either. Not to mention the Epidemic Juniors, Epicdemic. Outside of those I've always loved the name Fatality, excellent name.
  4. Hard to narrow it down to one clan but would be interesting to see how Epidemic/NME fared in the current scene. I'd say MM as well but honestly they had a monopoly on the pure community and their absence provides (or should provide) motivation for other clans to try and cement their legacy.

    Clans reopening ?

    I'm reopening both NME and Epidemic at the same time as the interchangeable #1 and #2 pure clans
  7. Im 25 and started pure clanning in 2004, 13 years ago. Kind of wild to think that there will be children on this forum who were not even a twinkle in their fathers eyes much less alive when I was first dropping clans and cleaning noobs at duelly. Puts alot of the posts by some people into perspective

    Post your favorite Raw war

    Ah, the RAW list. I was the manager of it alongside Omni and `Pure. Was great for the time, but unfortunately could never work now. From a completely neutral viewpoint (i was in neither of these clans) The greatest RAW war in history has to be given to the EOP vs Fatality 2 week prep in the summer of 2007. Fatality were the undisputed kings of F2P for 2007. They obliterated all competition with ease, and they truly were untouchable. EOP trailed them and were better than anybody else who dared step to them, but lost to Fi consistently and in convincing fashion. Tired of losing so much, EOP upp'ed their requirements and spent 2 months building a ridiculous range unit of level 99 rangers, going from mid level to having some of the best averages of all clans, including MM/FOE/TLP. After a training and recruitment drive, it paid off and soon after they were the first clan to beat Fi in a very long time, and continued to do so week in, week out. Interestingly, it was at this point that the RAW list came out with EOP being placed at the top spot of #1 after the several wins over Fatality, something hotly discussed in the community at large. Fatality of course disputed EOP as the true #1 F2P pure clan, and miraculously now had the system to prove it - the RAW list. Fatality (#2) declared on Eruption of Pures (#1) for the right to the claim of greatest F2P pure clan, and after days of fuckery finally decided on a 2 week prep. The build up is what makes this the greatest RAW war of all time, for 2 weeks on Pure Community discussion was rife as this single fight would determine once and for all who was the GREATEST F2P PURE CLAN, no excuses. All roads led to that point. There would be no dispute; whoever won this would literally be the best pure clan on the game. When game day came, Fatality proved to be all the more experienced and fleshed out in terms of memberbase, and Fatality dethroned EOP from the #1 spot and took back what in their opinion was rightfully theirs. Poetically enough, Fatality were the better clan at the point and went on to have an awe inspiring run as #1 F2P powerhouse, whereas EOP would dwindle off and after some real Machiavellian behind the scenes hacking amongst their leadership, would fall into a slump for the better part of a year and a half, only to return with a vengeance with a #1 run of their own.

    Which wave of LPCs did it better?

    The first one pretty much set the foundation, the goal of the first and second 'Waves' were to create an artificial LPC scene ie made to specification to lay the foundation for the next few years so a constant rotation of LPCs could feed the higher levelled clans. Before the first wave, there was ZERO low levelled clans so it was a blank slate. The first one spawned Zu and SUP as obvious success stories but eventually that started to taper off a bit and whilst there were new clans being created based off this (LT, DR etc), not enough (good) new clans were created to stabilise the entire scene for any significant amount of time. The second consisted of Olympus as the standout and a bunch of others which when combined with the remnants of the previous set of LPCs put the scene in a position that artificially guiding the scene was no longer needed. This meant new clans were starting to grow organically and essentially create a new golden age for low level clans with Doom, Imperial etc kicking that off. Slaughter, Rage, Ruin, Envy etc are great clans and a testament to how well the entire LPC push worked. Right now, without any 'outside interference', low level clans are opening often and doing really well, which I directly attribute to the first couple of LPC clans on 07. To conclude, I'd have to say the first two waves were the most important and set the foundation. The most recent clans (Imperial, Doom) helped build on that and now we have had a flourishing LPC scene for the best part of 2 years, which has created an upward activity surge for pure clanning as a whole. The current LPCs are doing a good job of carrying the standard and imo it's only up from here.

    Favorite rivalries you've witnessed?

    haha must have been a bad day for them if they lost to NME in p2p in CW, fairly sure these sort of clans focused on that particular game mode and totally disregarded wilderness/f2p etc so you'd expect better, really. Although my encyclopedic knowledge of pure clanning has rarely failed me, these small p2p only clans all melt into one big blur at this stage. From what I remember clans like Frenzy had a tendency to recruit loads of maxed 25-35 defense people who then proceeded to grind 10+ hours a day to get the latest saradomin hydrogen bomb or whatever the latest gimmick was, and then mini with the same 10 people for the remaining 10 hours of playing time a day - which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the dead weight that wernt allowed to mini were easily spotted in larger opt fights which allowed NME (admittedly a mediocre p2p cw clan) to steal a few wins here and there. As for my favorite rivalries, theres been a load of cool ones over the years but I will say the two that stand out (and coincidentally are both the two most one sided rivalries ive ever seen); Zo vs Logic and Dr R a g e vs the border police.
