  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Discord Moderator I have scrapped the discord moderator rank as it is too restrictive a rank for people who genuinely want to help out in all aspects of the pure community. Discord Restructuring I would like to thank everyone for their support as our discord is going to hit 2000 users woot!!! Realistically, Sharkbrew discord is primarily used for minis and generally flaming each other, but for most instances, I have seen general healthy conversations that take place most of the time. Our goal is to encourage and nurture both aspects. In light of the growth of activity, I would like to push for some changes, that I have yet to finalized this with my ranks, but on paper, I am looking to implement the following: If you are engaged in a flamewar, Sharkbrew ranks will not take action on any personal attacks against you. Sharkbrew staff members who are engaged in a flame wars will not have the authority to dish out any warns/mutes/bans unless IRL information is being posted. Failure to heed rightful instructions from a Sharkbrew rank will result in a warning, which is then upgraded to a ban or a mute if you fail to comply I would like some feedback to the above changes New Ranks We are looking to bring back WCOTM/COTM, and in the spirit of fair moderation, we are looking for clan members from clans who are severely underrepresented in Sharkbrew rank team. If you have about 30 mins a day to spare to the Pure Community, I urge you to sign up at the link in the header above.
  4. Retirement I regret to announce that owing to IRL obligations, the following ranks have stepped down: @Kim @IMK They each have contributed greatly to the site and they will be sorely missed. Promotions @Kye- As our de facto community events manager, his ability with organizing successful main and pure tournaments in the past has helped him earn this rank. I hope we can continue to benefit from his continued contributions ----------- Future Plans In the next coming weeks, I will be doing an overhaul of the old site systems and revamping the memberlist system. Do expect the return of WCOTM and COTM as I will be finishing the proper ELO table system that I haven't got around to completing in the past few months due to IRL work. Eventually, I will be integrating this site strongly with Sharkbrew's twitter page & our discord server to create a unified PvP platform, so stay tuned as there are big announcements coming soon in the near future. Talented Individuals If you are an individual who is extremely proficient at NH/Singles/BH pking, can spare 30 mins to an hour daily, and can play well in a team, please kindly drop me a private message on forums or on discord. We are looking for Pkers with varied backgrounds to help formulate and contribute to our upcoming PvP system. The one of the main goal of this system is to help alleviate many of the problems that plague the scene. While I can't say much as the details are still in the woodwork, your invaluable contributions will help shape the system and ultimately help the community you are so invested in. P.s. Do update your clan page and contribute to our newly re-released wiki https://www.sharkbrew.com/wiki/Main_Page
  5. Free teamspeaks for upcoming XLPCs With the release of F2P TB and the increase of interest in starting up a clan, Sharkbrew is offering free teamspeak hosting to any new clan popping up. Make an application here: https://www.sharkbrew.com/community/index.php?/application/form/4-free-teamspeak-hosting-for-xlpc/ and we will sort you out. Application shouldn't take more than a couple of days to process if everything is in order P.S. If you want to open your clan on the low key, feel free to make an incomplete aftermath topic- but we will need details including screenshots of ingame pulls to ensure that you have the foundations for starting a clan
  6. Discord: https://discord.gg/Y2nppv PM any admin for help!
  7. @Kyehas been promoted to @Mediator Kye has been around for quite a while and has put in extensive amounts of work on tournaments and new things we're putting forward in the upcoming months. Congratulations Kye! Sorry for the late sigs, but here they are! Credits to @Leninfor the GFX! @Gatekeeper @[email protected]
  8. At the time of writing, people with amazon prime accounts, you can subscribe to one twitch channel for free. The owner of said channel will receive $2.5 a month as a result of your subscription, and thus I urge all clan leaders to make a twitch channel for your clan and ask members with amazon prime to subscribe to your channel-if they haven't subscribed to anyone yet. This allows you to effectively earn additional $ that could be used for clan operations while also costing your members nothing. Do this fast as I don't believe amazon will keep this offer up for too long. There is a channel in discord where you can advertise your channel, and I will be creating a forum section here shortly as well Furthermore, you can also use your channel to stream your clan's preps/events and -potentially- get a couple of recruits. P.S. Credits to IR titans for this idea
  9. https://www.sharkbrew.com/wiki/Main_Page Over the past couple of weeks, I had been badgered by some community members to put up the wiki, so here it is! As each of you have a unique perspective and experience in your respective clanning community, I hope everyone will take some time to immortalize their slice of history by contributing their experiences to the wiki! Also while running the underdogs tournament, some of the newer clans are not aware of the basic clanning & prep terminologies. Thus, this wiki relaunch shall focus on building a guides repository, so that future clans leaders do not have to build their foundations from scratch. If you like to become a wiki editor, please do drop me a PM on forums or on discord.
  10. Sorry, this topic has been long overdue because I haven't had time to fix the problematic awards system that was only partially compatible with ipb 4.2. Without much (further) ado, Sharkbrew would like to congratulate Apex for beating FOE in the final round to win the Sharkbrew summer tournament. All prize money has been paid out, and all members in the Apex clan have received their forum medals
  11. https://discordapp.com/terms With the new politically correct rules that just came out for discord partnered servers on 1st Apr, the above TOS still applies for users of regular server. https://www.reddit.com/r/pcgaming/comments/b7eeii/discord_wants_to_censor_harmless_speech_while_the/ In view of this situation, keeping blast furnace(BF) in our discord, whilst it contributes greatly to activity, it risks your discord accounts getting restricted or deleted. Thus, I have removed BF so users may necessarily not be tempted to post content that contravened such rules. We will be also reviewing any BBQ weekend events and might possibly introduce future rules regarding this matter. This matter is not exclusive to Sharkbrew. If you are a clan discord owner, bear in mind that discord is clamping down heavily on hate speech and users in your discord could report each other for said offenses. There might be some restrictions in the future but we are observing the situation closely
  12. If you been living under a rock or haven't been up to date on the drama, here follows: POV from a FOE Member: POV from a ROT Member: Currently topics that implies mains ragging pures are locked or hidden depending on severity, and moderation in discord chat has been ramped up quite significantly. However with respect to topics and the nearly daily flamewars between FOE and ROT in Sharkbrew discord, has it been disrupting the flow of conversations in there? and is there anything else sharkbrew should be doing on the discord and forum side? The goal of this topic is to solicit feedback from the community as us rank have been bombarded with views from different bias angles and we wish to find out whether if it is necessary for us to step in further.
  13. Hello everyone! Im sure everyone had noticed a new addition to the team over the last few days. @Alan Rickmanhas been an immense help around the forums and Discord, and has been greatly involved with the community. Given his hard work ethic and attention to detail on the moderation team as well as community development projects, we have decided to promote him to Mediator. Take the time to say hello when you see him! There have also been some adjustments made to the forums to help cut down site clutter. The section buttons help with presentation and browsing by actively cutting down on-screen resources. We also have some projects we’ve been actively working on to help improve the community that we will be excited to share with you in the near future! Stay tuned for more coming announcements!

  16. Good morning, Staff have been in discussions of what type of event to kick off the year with. We have taken note of certain community conflicts going on between clans. The best event, we could think of are team based entry tournaments. There was an interest for a mini tournament to be held in January, I hope those same groups will come forward for a fantastic turnout. When will this tournament be held? We're working out logistics in Sharkbrew HQ and giving out roles to staff members. We're hoping to begin the first rounds of tournament(s) in the ending of February or the first week of March. What do you mean by team based entry? You can create a team for the purpose of entering this tournament. Whenever your group is in different clans, they'll be allowed to enter the tournament with you. What will the rules be for said tournament or event? We will be hosting topics within team ambassadors section/public discussion after this weekend. Huh? Why are 2 v 2s a question within this poll? Our third question was a suggestion using channel #support within our discord. If you have any suggestions for our discord or for Sharkbrew in general. Post it in #support. The message will automatically deleted and be placed in a staff channel for staff members to discuss. Join our discord for discussions pertaining to the events!
  17. XLPC Wilderness Clan of The Month XLPC Clan of The Month Points System How It Works: WCOTM and COTM will both work under a point-based system. Points will be racked in different ways; clan wars action for COTM and wilderness action for WCOTM. On a week-to-week basis, Gatekeepers will be keeping track of these points and whoever accumulates the most in each category will win the award for the month. A few examples of PAST signatures: Wilderness Scoring Verified Official Weekend Trips; +2 Points Weekend Opt min; 20 Verified Unofficial Midweek Trips; +.5 Point Midweek Opt min; 12 Verified Player Kill Run-In's (PKRI's); +1 Point PKRI Opt min; 12 We would like to promote as much wilderness PVP activity as possible. Areas in the wilderness, along with PVP WORLD multi-based spots may constitute for points. Partially win or partially lose, we like to see a spike in XLPC-based activity. For wilderness topics to attain verification, there must be evidence of action against well-established PURE XLPC clans. This can be shown via screenshots & videos. For PKRI's, there MUST be evidence of action via logs or text against the established clan. An example can be seen below: If failure to provide the evidence of action via logs or text against the established clan, then you will receive a deduction of -.5 in points. You may only get 2 topics verified per day; ie. Midweek and/or PKRI, one for EST and one for GMT. Breaking Rules If a clan is seen and verified with the use of mains, their standings and current points will be deducted a -1 in points. If no topics are posted, clans may still dispute the use of mains during a PK trip. These can be disputed between ambassadors. Clan Wars Scoring BO3 (Best-out-of-3) Rounds; Set Win: +0.20 PointsSet Loss: +0.05 PointsA maximum of 4 BO3's may count per week 12v12 min. While the wilderness may be the zone for most to find action throughout the day, we would like to ensure a fair running for all clans without favoring or punishing big pulling clans. Clans Wars provides an even slate for all kinds of pulls. BO3's may consist of SCHEDULED PREPS. All CWA must be posted within 24 hours of the allotted time. Scheduled Preps (min. 25v25) adds +2.0 to the winner and +.8 to the loser There must be at LEAST 3 preps in the month (wins or losses) to be qualified for COTM! Point Penalty/Feeding You are allowed 1 Prep vs 2 Clans per day MAX 4 Preps vs 1 Clan per month MAX Every prep after 4 preps vs the same clan per month will constitute 0 points Breaking Rules Dirty tactics in clan wars, such as cape switching, rushing with an unwarranted opt amount, etc. may be up for point deduction based on the level of offense. Other clans can dispute preps they weren't involved in. Disputes Disputes may be done via the Ambassador Boards, forum PM, or Discord PM. They MUST have valid evidence behind claims and disputes using screenshots, videos, logs, etc. Must go through @DilL @[email protected] Tie-Breakers (Clan Wars only) The top two clans regardless of score margin must battle it out to win. This battle must occur at the beginning of the next month. Must be 30v30 minimum Sharkbrew-Wide Events (2v2's/RvB's/Fun Events/etc) Points will be distributed to clans that participate in sharkbrew-wide events as deemed fit. Points will be decided by the COTM team.
  18. Mediator Promotion @DilL- Since Oct 2018, Dill has been working diligently on the xLPC scene, running events and managing the w308 discord. Having organized 2 xLPC events without any serious trouble and all while being a proponent for this new scene that needs the nurturing Dill provides, I am extremely proud to announce his promotion. Un-retirements After taking sometime off the community to pursue and settle their IRL commitments, I am glad to say that @Leninand @Kimhas returned to the community and have taken up their old rank positions. PVP Section I have created a new dedicated PvP section where you can show off your Pking Kills. Everyone has the ability to tag high priced item kills. Stay tune over the coming weeks as we will be hosting a pure mini tournament, and tools for pures and pkers alike on the home page

  20. There has been a website called "https://www.sharkbrewgold.com" stealing our gfx and impersonating our staff to sell GP while having you enter emails to enter the "live chat" for any GP sales or transactions to happen. TLDR: It's a scam site do not use it. ------------------------------------------------------ SBGToday at 10:38 PM Buying .79/m! --> https://www.sharkbrewgold.com/ contact a live agent to get started! MoniToday at 10:38 PM ? WHAT THE FUCK LFMAO Why are u using my websites alias/gfx @SBG ?
  21. Red Vs Blue Details: Sunday 25th November 4EST/9GMT F2P CWA first to 50 Discord: https://discord.gg/MXTqZZd 2x Plateau 1x Turrets Teams will be randomized (minus callers) This event is for mains however if you are a pure with access to a main feel free to attend. Yes you read correctly, F2P CWA. We're hopeful for a minimum turn out of 100 people (50v50). The only thing you need to do to participate is join the discord server and post the RSN that you be be fighting with.

  22. Main Mediator Promotions @Paul - As an active player, a leader of a main clan, and has helped opened communication gateways with Jagex, Paul is our best candidate to represent and advance the interest the main community on sharkbrew and beyond. @Eevee - Having nearly 14 years experience in some of the largest main clans, and moderating forums and runescape, Eevee will be helping us building a community that is free of toxicity, while not ignoring the competitive roots that we all clanners come from. Gatekeeper Promotions We recently drained the swamp, having killed off most of our pure gatekeepers, so I am repromoting a bunch. Lets welcome: @Satans @Alan Rickman @Intense Yak @Sauce @Purefect @Nidoqueen @N Ranges For those who had applied and didn't make it, do not fret as many if you are in overly represented clans. We will still look at your application when positions open up in the future
  23. Community Code of Conduct Firstly, I would like to thank @Eevee(Victoria) for writing the new revised guidelines. Under these new guidelines, we are looking to build a community that is open, and attractive to new players, but yet still allow for the community banter that occurs between clans. With Victoria's vast experience moderating online communities, we will be able achieve this goal. Key Changes: Warning points now expire after 90 days(up from 30 days) Suspension for your first warn has significantly increased Community Disciplinarians Some sharkbrew ranks may have a subgroup called "Community Moderators". These ranks help upkeep and maintain the community rules. If you have any rule suggestions or like to report potential infringers, do drop them a message! Currently the following ranks in this subgroup are: @Eevee @Nolan @Caroline.
  24. Here at SharkBrew we're happy to support any tournament which is why we are endorsing Sanity's tournament. This tournament is set to rival the PvP Championship with a 1b prize pool and in competition/Jagex involvement. Mod Sween is working hard to get the turrets map remade to its pre eoc glory, there has also been talks of the winners getting an ingame statue. There are currently 13 clans/teams entering. Now without further ado here are all the details regarding the tournament. Welcome to Sanity’s tournament of champions! In order to be more inclusive & involve the whole Runescape community we’re hosting an RSB (maxed warring) clan wars tournament with RESTRICTED GEAR (Ely, Ancestral, Venom will be off). Hopefully this will leave the door open for many clans and teams who aren’t accustom to trying this style of fighting due to gear issues. We’re hoping running a 2-day tournament instead of weekly fights will ensure more focus throughout the tournament. Please read below. Tournament Discord: https://discord.gg/bgeaYxZ For more information about the tournament feel free to idle our discord channel. Tournament Dates: December 1st, December 2nd (Weekend Before DMM Tourney) Prize Pot: 1b~ (Haven’t opened donations yet, expecting to be around 1b) Brackets: 10v10 & 5v5 Official Tournament Twitter: @sanityosrs Memberlist Rules: Each player can be on ONE memberlist for EACH category. For example: Warrer A is in Sanity and fights for their 10v10 team but wants to be on a different team for 5v5s. 100% Acceptable. We’ll give more details as to how we’re expecting each Clan/Team to submit their memberlists as we get closer to the tournament. Current Gear Restrictions: ELY/ANCESTRAL/VENOM OFF Full list of allowed gear and draft of the topic is available here https://i.gyazo.com/thumb/1200/33a836065d75678551b7e683984df5f9-png.jpg YOU'VE BEEN INVITED TO JOIN A SERVER Sanity Tournament Of Champions 58 Online102 Members Joined
