Tempest Celebrates 2 Years!


Recommended Posts

On August 13th 2020, two long years ago, this crazy little adventure we call Tempest became official. In many ways, it was the perfect storm 🌧: many of us veteran clanners returned to Gielinor during the height of the Covid-19 lockdown, reconnecting with old friends, clanmates and even those enemies we'd stare down in-game. In the midst of all the chaos the world was facing, it was a pleasure to see so many familiar faces resurfacing, many who hadn't been around in years. Many we thought we'd never see again.

 

As we all know, it didn't stop there. After a number of interesting (and hilarious, in hindsight) conversations, we decided on a crazy, out-of-nowhere idea of rounding up our fellow RS boomers and taking on what was left of F2P. We quickly recruited like-minded officials with incredible work ethics and skillsets, many with their own drive to make this a Last Dance of their own. We recruited those returning scapers, retired clansmen we cornered and pitched, and bugged people to find other people we hoped still had an RS account.  

 

Skipping a few chapters ahead, Tempest has been a wonderful success. We thrived with our own mentality, building from an opening memberlist of 56 to a clan consistently pulling over 100 people to the largest F2P fights we've seen since early OSRS. With every triumphant victory, we conquered both the wilderness and CWA. As P2P moved back to the forefront of clan world activity, we jumped in with both feet, reshaping our approach to be a force on both sides of the coin. Over these past two years, we've adapted, strategized and come out stronger through every challenge that came our way.

 

Alongside all of our impressive in-game accomplishments, our greatest victory has been the wonderful, tight-knit community we've built over the last 24 months. Everything becomes easier when you have a memberbase as wonderful as ours, one that knows how to make anything and everything fun. One that knows when to lock-in and bring their A game to a high stakes fight. We wouldn't be here without our members, and each of you have carved out your own place in what makes Tempest special. My appreciation for everyone that as served under our banner is limitless. 

 

A big shoutout to @Vanuckle for compiling another fantastic video to celebrate our birthday. Additional thanks for @Null for documenting several of our amazing TS moments.

Two years ago most clans said we wouldn't even last 6 months. In two years we've achieved more than most of those clans have in their entire history.

What a journey. I’m so proud of everyone who has shaped this clan into what it is today. We’ve grown in leaps and bounds and had so many memorable moments along the way. 
 

My favourite part about this clan is the community and the people who make every moment great, endless banter on discord, late night ts unit, all the fucking around during mass, the close CWA fights, being apes in the middle of the battles. Hopefully this years videos captures some of those memories. 
 

Also thanks to @Null who captured some of the TS banter again. Really helps tie the video together.

With small, humble goals to just have a bit of fun here and there while the  pandemic lasted -- it was fun to see us transition into a powerhouse. When we first opened a lot of people wrote us off, after our first year with F2P activity waning -- the same people wrote us off again, but we continued to thrive. I'm grateful to all members we've had who made the past two years very enjoyable and memorable in an uncertain, post-COVID world. To me the community has always been the glue and selling point of Tempest above else.

 

Happy 2nd Birthday Tempest!

 

P.S. Definitely take the time to watch the video Vanuckle put together, it includes many highlights from our 2nd year.
