Over the years, Clan Sverker has accomplished a great deal in the various games the clan has participated in. Some of those more recent, great Feats are listed below.
Maiden Polar Bear Donation Drive
In July of 2018, our guild chose to celebrate our 6th anniversary in a way that would benefit the real world. After the usual discussion thread held in our Þingsverker forums, we decided on, and hosted, our first ever donation drive in support of our Mascot: the Polar Bear. The organization we chose was selected because of their commitment to utilizes all funds received in helping to maintain the habitat that Polar Bears despirately need to survive. Polar Bear International is that charity of choice. Clan Sverker looks forward to a time when Polar Bears are no longer on the Endangered Species List.
As thanks to Arrobee, Arnfield, Mydnitte, Smroo, Typsi, Noggz and Enrico for making this donation drive a success, a special forum badge was created.
Clan Sverker Tartan
In mid-2016, as a way to honor Clan Sverker's four year anniversy, The Þingsverker began work on designing a tartan to represent the Clan Sverker community. After months of working on designs, tweaking, and deliberating, a design that touched upon everyone's preferences came out on top. This design was then sent to the Scottish Government's Tartan Registar with the aims of obtaining recognition as an official and legal tartan with the perk of having the legal rights to the tartan. In the autumn of 2016, word was recieved from the Scottish Government congratulating us on meeting all requirements and informing us that the Sverker Tartan is now included in the official Scottish Register of Tartans.
As a special thanks to Jorvald, Arrobee, Mydnite, Khaine, Noggz, and Lucian for making this dream a reality, a special forum badge was created.
The Evolution of the Clan Sverker Logo
Over Clan Sverker's many years of gaming, the logo has gone through some changes, some more drastic than others. This is our logo's evolution as our clan grew into the community we know today.
As one of the first guilds to publically support CU, Clan Sverker has been a part of the greater Camelot Unchained community since June 2014. We are leading the charge for the Viking faction community as it's premier guild with the most views and replies of any recruitment thread on CU's official forums. Fully dedicated and committed to CU's development and success, our members have been assisting City State Entertainment with Backers in Internal Testing, Alpha testing and soon to be Beta testing.
2017 Gift to CSE
2016 Gift to CSE
After very generous donations from members of Clan Sverker, we were able to order 10 drinking horns after only looking to buy three or four. CSE was once again very pleased to see the gift from Clan Sverker and featured it in a live stream unboxing and also their monthly newsletter. Image courtesy of that newsletter.
2015 Gift to CSE
After CSE released their proposed combat classes for CU, all 30 of them, Clan Sverker set out to create a gift featuring this milestone in the games development. After The Þingsverker worked many nights together getting the design just right, we were able to send this blanket and an ornament(not pictured) just in time for the holidays. In a livestream during the unboxing, Andrew Meggs can be seen throwing it over his shoulders like a cloak and jumping around the office.
2014 Gifts to CSE
Mark Jacobs and Andrew Meggs, the President and Lead Programmer of CSE respectively, posed for some pictures with the gifts Clan Sverker members pitched in to send them and their team.
Wolrd of Warcraft (Retired: 2012-2016)
Top Ranked RBG Guild
Clan Sverker ended the closing season of MoP as not only the top RBG / PvP guild of Bonechewer, but also of Aegwyn, Daggerspine, Hakkar and Gurubashi.
The Domination of a Rival Guild
While we do try to maintain the best of relations possible with other guilds regardless of faction, sometimes that just isn’t possible. Our first experiences with A&V were positive and we worked together with their officers to accomplish a server first of two PvP guilds working together to form a large scale wPvP event with pre-determined rules. The peace and co-operative spirit would not last, though. While forming up A&V, taking an extra hour to prepare, despite having superior numbers, they experienced strife from within their ranks after being wiped by our group and their group disbanded shortly afterwards. Blaming their loss and short comings as a unified guild on us, their GM, Sunshien, declared all of our members were kill on sight. We responded with the same declaration, which would ultimately result in the break-up of A&V’s presence outside of Horde cities and their safe instanced Garrisons. After just a few months, A&V once being one of the most notable Horde guilds with a wPvP presence was worn down to a PvE only guild, cowering behind instance screens running at first sight of our members.
Returning Ivus to Alterac Valley
The event were we returned Ivus to Alterac valley, or simply “Ivus 2014” as our members fondly call it was a huge success. Alterac Valley in modern times is nothing more than a race to be the most successful zerg. Many of our members are veteran players who have the fond memory of the week long Alterac Valleys turtles and the race to summon Ivus to aid our faction. With Alterac Valley’s current state, not many WoW players even know about how the battleground used to be and especially not about Ivus. We found a way to beat the zerg race, showing newer WoW players an unseen part of WoW’s history and bring back nostalgia for those who once experienced it in the early days of the game.
Server First: Warspear Raid
The Horde, never wanting to leave their safe Garrison’s instances or the protection of the elite guards of Horde city of Warspear, growing bored and disappointed with the Horde’s lack of a presence in the world, Hroth had an idea. We’ve always hit their most frequented spots, why not hit their main city in Draenor? After two weeks of planning and preparation, Clan Sverker did just that. Over twenty of our members showed up for the fun. During the server’s peak hours, completely taking the Horde off guard, Warspear, the stronghold of the Horde in Draenor was the territory of Clan Sverker for over an hour.
Server First: Blackrock Foundry Ganking
On February 3 2015, the newest raid for World of Warcraft opened up. The mass waves of the Horde’s PvE heros flocked to the gates of their next adventure and the next step in their PvE progression. Completely unaware owere they expecting us to come ruin their fun. When our group of seven crashed into the sea of red names, they were completely caught off guard. Some ran toward the instance, some mounted up and blindly ran in a different direction and some stood and fought, but in vain. Our small group controlled the entrance into Blackrock Foundry for over two hours during the server’s peak times, denying the Horde entrance into the new raid.
