INTRODUCTION[edit | edit source]

Vengeance was founded by Sybren on February 26, 2016 as the only Rune Pure & Range Tank Clan in OSRS at that moment. They are currently still the record-holder of being the oldest open Zerk, Tank & Med Clan in Old School RuneScape. Its foundation was based on the following keywords: Fun, Mature, Honor and Communism.

THE FOUNDATION (26-02-2016)[edit | edit source]

The main reason for this foundation was simply because there was no official Rune Pure or Range Tank clan to join besides a massing cc called 'Wreckless Savages". Sybren was coming from the pure scene as a high rank (High Council/Webmaster) for longer than 3 years and always had a huge passion for the Zerk Scene as that was his last build pre-EOC. The opportunities in OSRS were too good to let it go to waste so he immediately started working everything out to create a brand new clan in this highly underestimated scene.

He started off by contacting people from known clans like Valhalla, Higher Force & Phalanx through Zybez and their forums.

Sadly, none of them were interested or had the time so he decided to start on the project by himself while recruiting for people in-game. He came up with the name 'Vengeance' for the clan as most Zerks and Tanks are known to have this spell unlocked and he wanted something short and easy to remember.

THE FIRST MONTH THAT SHOOK THE PVP SCENE[edit | edit source]

After a couple of weeks the GFX, Forums, Clan Chat and TeamSpeak3 Server were finished and ready to go! The community grew insanely fast, after only 1 month they had 105+ official members on the Memberlist and 245+ registrations on the Forums. At the same time, Sybren was able to select a couple of dedicated members who were willing to join the rank team and who shared the same goals/vision. You can find a list of all Veng High Ranks below as many 'come and go' throughout the years.

MAIN LEADERSHIP[edit | edit source]

  • Leaders: Sybren & Tyy
  • Warlord: Brandon (Bemb)
  • Council: Taylor (Quick Prayer)

STARTING A NEW ZERK/TANK SCENE[edit | edit source]

Vengeance gained loads of popularity as they were pretty much pking 24/7 with 30+ people. They were on Reddit, Zybez, Sharkbrew, YouTube, Official RuneScape Forums etc... More and more clans started to hear about them. As usual, rival clans opened up and official fights started to happen pretty soon. Wreckless Savages [WS] and Pandemic [PD] took part in most fights in the early days of Vengeance with the ultimate goal of closing Vengeance. Sadly both of them closed themselves  after a couple of weeks throughout this so-called 'first rivalry'. Vengeance was far ahead of their competition at this point.

A TRUE CONTENDER SHOWED UP... OR WAS IT?[edit | edit source]

After 3-4 months another official Zerk & Tank clan opened in OSRS called Revenant [Rev], mainly consisting of experienced members from the same scene since pre-EOC from clans like Valhalla, Higher Force, Phalanx, etc... Vengeance was looking forward to having a healthy rivalry with the only other clan in the scene. They showed big potential from day one. The first few months the battles went back and forth and they literally lasted hours and hours. It was so much fun seeing an underdog clan being able to compete vs an old school clan. Sadly Revenant started using out of game tactics, propaganda and lies. They even stated publically they only opened to close Vengeance.

MAIN LEADERSHIP[edit | edit source]

  • Founder: Sybren
  • Leader: Miltz
  • Warlord: Shane (Veng Speed)
  • Councils: Dylan (Fatigues) & Bas (Under Constr)

THE CLOSURE = THE END OF THE ZERK/TANK SCENE? (30-10-2016)[edit | edit source]

After 8 months Vengeance had to close for multiple reasons: unexpected mass-leaves from core members to either join rival clans like Revenant [Rev] or Afterlife [AL], lack of communication/activity from high ranks, dealing with the crazy amount of leaks etc... Sybren was always able to pull Vengeance through these sort of situations before, but because he was so occupied with real-life priorities (expecting a child, renovating the house and a career switch) he couldn't guarantee Vengeance was able to continue under its main foundation: fun, mature, honor and communism. Instead of risking to ruin the achievements and reputation Vengeance has build he decided to close the clan while keeping the community open until he was able to come back out of retirement and more importantly with the right amount of ranks. All tho this was for Vengeance's own good and people were released of their ranks and responsibilities it sure took a big hit in the OSRS PvP scene. The Zerk & Tank clan called Afterlife [AL] closed a couple of days later and the only other clan left in the scene called Revenant [Rev] went main a couple of weeks later.

THE SCENE MOVING ON & THE LONG AWAITED REOPENING (01-10-2017)[edit | edit source]

As months passed by, not only Sybren's real-life stabilized but he gained more and more pm's from ex-members asking about the reopening and even new people who wanted to part of Vengeance. The most interesting thing to see was the Zerk & Tank scene continuing after Vengeance, the most remarkable one being the official clan called Elite Zerks where most of ex-Veng went and a massing cc called 'Zerk Clan'. Back in his pure clanning days, Sybren got to know another Belgium guy called Bryan aka Profanity who seemed to have played a big part in the reopening of Vengeance. He was able to make Sybren reopen Vengeance with the promise of taking the leadership role. Also because a lot of ex-Veng members joining the rank team were one of the most important factors to reopen.

MAIN LEADERSHIP[edit | edit source]

  • Leaders: Bryan (Profanity) & Sybren
  • Warlords: Frank (Foreigner) & Scuffee
  • Councils: Matt & Nick (Trouserdevil)

FOUNDERS OF THE NEW ZERK, TANK & MED ERA[edit | edit source]

With the reopening of Vengeance in 2017, which we call Veng V², Sybren also decided to implement the typical Med PvP builds in the Zerk & Tank scene as well, which was later being used by any other clan in the same scene as well. His reasons were:

  1. They max out at the exact same combat level as a maxed Zerk and Tank (compare the stats in the chart below).
  2. Lack of active Med Clans while it's still a PvP build in pretty much the same scene.
  3. The popularity of this build has grown tremendously in the few past years ever since the Forgotten Prayers came out (Rigour and Augury) and they can easily do PvM as well. It's pretty much a hybrid combination of a Zerk and Tank and more and more people are transitioning to this build because of its versatility.

THE BATTLE FOR THE #1 ZERK/TANK/MED CLAN[edit | edit source]

Ever since Veng V² reopened the scene has seen a lot of clans come and go. There were similar Veng vs Res rivalries like:

  • Elite Zerks vs Avalon
  • Turmoil vs Vengeance
  • Avalon vs Turmoil

During the early months of the reopening Vengeance was mainly focussing on rebuilding their community back up as that was always their strongest and most important point in clanning. Later they'd focus on their quality, they were always very realistic about their goals. Other clans in the scene seemed to mainly focus on the wrong short term goals which also resulted in a lot of closures. This scene has never seen so many clans, teams or massing cc's before:

  • Elite Zerks *** (closed on their 1 year anni)
  • Jogres ** (closed after a couple of weeks/months)
  • Evil * (closed after a couple of months)
  • Empire ** (closed after a couple of months)
  • Avalon *** (closed after Vengeance didn't give them any action any more)
  • The Council * (closed after a couple of months)
  • Turmoil *** (after a couple of months during the AV rivalry they went main under the name SV)
  • Hoodlum * (closed after a couple of months)
  • Vengeance V² ** (rebuilding phase)

Later you'd have:

  • Destiny **
  • Vengeance V² ***
  • Mass Destruction *
  • Resurgence ***
  • Paragon **

HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF, BUT WITH A BIG COMEBACK - TRUE #VENGUP[edit | edit source]

Even Veng V² didn't always go as planned. The main issue being: ranks and members leaving to join the rival clan. The funny part is they've joined Avalon [AV] which closed a month later and then most ex-Veng joining Mass Destruction [MD] afterwards which closed fairly soon as well. Eventually, the community who left Vengeance was split up once again amongst Resurgence [Rev] (mainly AV + ex-Veng) and Paragon [Para] (mainly ex-Veng/Mass Destruction).

Let me continue by saying that because of Veng's reputation people who truly know the clan will always respect for them. This is why Vengeance will always be a strong clan in the scene. After the last mass-leave Sybren was literally left alone with Connor (Prefade) & Shottix as the only members willing to step up with a couple of new and very few core people left which you could literally count on one hand. What was really surprising this time, was the amount of support he was getting from outside of Vengeance's Community. Other clans and individuals offered their help but one was the most promising looking one... Zewy who was Veng v1 and later Leader of Empire offered his help along with the community he was able to keep in touch ever since Empire closed. They were on the edge of opening a clan in the same scene regardless so it was the perfect time to combine forces so we could all go straight back into action with the right community. As soon as this happened more ex-Veng came back home as well like Thomas (Spoontech) which put a lot of work into the upgrade of the clan as well.

MAIN LEADERSHIP[edit | edit source]

THE CURRENT LEADERSHIP & CORE - THE FUTURE![edit | edit source]

Thanks to the current leadership and core members Vengeance has improved tremendously and was once more able to establish a fun, mature, active community with honor. They succeeded in winning wars against experienced pure clans (extra numbers), maxed main clans (less and even numbers) and long hours of battles against other clans in the same scene.

They sadly saw the closure of the Zerk, Tank & Med clan called Destiny [Dty] who gave them the most respected fights in Veng History so far and the closure of the pure clan called Misfits [MF] who were the founders of the 1 def movement in the pure scene where Sybren was also part of for the first couple of months... Luckily, because of the respectful relationship they had with each other some of them decided to join Vengeance, so they could all continue having the fun the right way.
