Name Reservations For Clans Are Closed!
That's it folks: pre-registration for Clan names are now closed. Thanks to everyone who took the time to request their marvellous moniker!
Let's talk about what happens next, including what you'll need to do if your application was successful.
First of all, there will be no game update this week. We'll be using this time to test and tweak the system to perfection, ready for the big launch. It's all hands on deck!
We expect next week's game update (May 19th) to be a soft launch, with successful applicants being assigned their Clan name through a manual process explained below. Throughout the week, all players will have access to the shiny new Clan side-panel, though all actual features of the system will be disabled. Tantalising!
Provided the names process runs smoothly, the Clans system will fully launch on May 26th. All of the features, interfaces and menu options of the Clans system will be accessible to everyone, and you can start having fun! If you didn't get the chance to pre-register your Clan name, or your reservation request was unsuccessful, this will be your moment. You'll be able to grab a name on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you've applied for a Clan name, you'll receive an in-game Inbox message from us in the next week or so, letting you know if you've been successful. You will receive your answer by May 19th at the latest, so please be patient with us.
If your application has been accepted, congratulations! The Inbox message will include an invite link to a Discord server that we'll be using to arrange the registration of Clan names. The message will also give the Discord tag of the staff member leading the project. Discord tags are unique, so don't accept any messages or links from Discord tags other than the one named in the message.
You must join the Discord server and arrange a suitable time for us to meet you in-game. Since there are thousands of Clans to manually assign in a relatively short timeframe, we're going to be holding several drop-in sessions from May 19th onwards. Think of it as booking your appointment at the Clan clinic!
Once a Clan name has been assigned to you, the side-panel will tell you which Clan you're in, but all of the features from the menu will remain blocked until Clans is fully launched on May 26th. You can peek at your presents but you can't open them yet...
- Pre-registration for Clan Names is now closed.
- There is no game update this week, but players who have pre-registered a name can expect an Inbox Message with news by May 19th.
- If your application has been successful, the Inbox Message will contain a link to the Discord Server we're using for this process, and the Discord ID tag to verify that it's us.
- You should join the Discord Server as soon as possible and sign up to an in-game drop-in session from May 19th onwards.
- At the drop-in, we will create your Clan name and then transfer ownership over to you.
- Those who have successfully been assigned their Clan name will see it on the Clan side-panel, but no one will be able to access the features of the Clans system until the full launch, expected on May 26th.
We're almost there, everyone! Thanks so much for your continued patience. We know that you've been eagerly awaiting the release of the Clans system and can't wait to see how creative you'll get with the new features. Clan-tastic!
PvP World Rota
With no game update this week, the PvP world rota will remain on the same rotation and will not move to Period B until next week's game update on May 19th.
After recently introducing the weekly change to the rota based on feedback from a player survey, we are currently investigating changing the system that handles this.
Rather than worlds constantly changing between regular and PvP, we'll look to add worlds dedicated to the PvP rota instead. These worlds would always be configured as PvP worlds, but they'd only be live when they're included within the active PvP world rota period at the time.
As always, please share your feedback with us via the official forums, on the 2007Scape Reddit, or the community-led OSRS Discord in the #gameupdate channel.
