After much thought and discussion, the leadership has decided to cease operating as a competitive clan.
The reason is simple. It's not really that we all of a sudden have no time to play or don't feel we can continue, it's that as a Rune Pure/Tank clan, we've accomplished everything we could've ever hoped for in this clan world. We not only dominated our category until we were the last clan standing, we established ourselves as one of the most active and competitive P2P clans overall. There's not much left for us in the clan world to do or accomplish so we've decided to take a step back and play the game more casually now, rather than invest significant amounts of our time in running a clan.
That aside, it's pretty obvious that the concept of a Rune Pure/Tank clan is obsolete in this clan world. In the past (pre-eoc), the model made sense because most of the activity took place between 15-20 wilderness; a clan made up of powerful mid-level accounts gave us a huge edge. Currently, all of the action is condensed above 40 wilderness with maxed mains so our old advantage is no more. Because Valhalla's legacy has and will remain as a Rune Pure/Tank clan, we'd rather call it a day than go main as a clan.
So, what now? Don't think of us as being gone completely, the TS and forums will remain online and we'll still be PKing occasionally as a group of friends. Nothing serious, no rules, no applications, just a tight-knit community of friends doing what we want when we want. Keep in touch on the forums, IRC, and WhatsApp.
Shout out to all of the Heroes who made the clan what it was. Thanks for the memories.
