Hello avid blog readers and welcome back for another update of the toriverse.
This time we are looking at the toribash clan league 2011. In the shadow of the recent tori championships the clan events team are holding the clan version of the popular tournament, the main difference obviously being the participation of clans instead of individuals and the amazing prizes up for grabs. For those of you who don’t know, the joint colour alpha imperial, that eternalised the clan Alpha, was one of the prize options of a past clan league. Battling for dominance, prizes and the right to call themselves the best clan are 32 diverse clans battling in numerous mods in a best to 5 game mode. This is sure to be an intense battle since it has been quite a while since the lest clan league. To get some more information i had a quick interview with a member of the clan events team, Gum. Here is what transpired:
<Aakash> So from what i understand there hasn’t been a clan league in a while. Who’s Idea was it to reinstate it?
<Gum> Well the origin of the idea came from a thread Zinx posted. When I became leader for the Clan Events Team, I decided we should host it and started the efforts towards making that happen
<Aakash> Just out of curiosity when was the last clan league and why was it stopped?
<Gum> The last clan league I remember was back in 2009. I don’t know why it was stopped, probably just because no one was available to put one together.It takes quite a bit of work to set up something this big.
<Aakash> So im sure everyone is curious as to what the prizes are. Would you like to comment on that?
<Gum> At the moment, we are still working on that. Something we know will be given is quite a lot of clan events points and an achievement to the clans that take first and second place.There will be more, and it will be a very nice set of prizes, we are just finalizing the details for now. I’ll post once we have it all decided.We will be making this league worth the trouble for the winners
<Aakash> well i know that one of the previous prizes was the introduction of alpha imperial and the winning clan could chose the prize. Will it be the same for this clan league?
<Gum> We may let the winning clan choose their prize, but there will not be a new color. I’ve been told that is out of the question.
<Aakash> Do you think this will be a yearly occurrence or are you just testing the waters to see how well it is received before fully reinstating the clan league?
<Gum> This is more of a test to see how it works and see what we can improve for future leagues. If all goes well there may be another one in 2012. I’ll definitely be pushing for full reinstatement of the league.
<Aakash> It must have been pretty time consuming to organise an event like this. I noticed that the sign up for the clan league started long back. Did it take a long time planning this event or were you waiting for enough clans to sign up.
<Gum> Well, we had enough clans quite soon after I posted the sign up. The hard part was actually setting it up and getting the brackets made. The planning is still going on right now actually. Its taken a few months but I’m happy we could get it launched before the end of the year.
<Aakash> Well I’m sure everyone is looking forward to the clan league. Thanks you Gum for your cooperation and for bringing back this amazing event.
<Gum> Thank you, and I hope this league goes well. May the best clan win.
So there you have it. The prize unfortunately wont be a custom clan join colour but you can still be sure that, even though the exact details of the prize is being withheld, it will be worth the effort and as Gum said the winning clan will bathe in clan event points and even get their very own achievement. Hopefully this will become a yearly occurrence and may the best clan win.
