Timeline of the history of Asgard.

  • 2005
  • The origins

    1 / 6 / 2005

    Åsgard formed as a separation from Dragon Team (Dead from November 2005, later reformed in 2008), founded by clanmates Sub Zero and Hundredth in June 2005. As DT fell apart through a new quantity over quality mass recruitment, Sub and Hundredth gradually began to deter away from the DT mainstream, taking the decent members and setting up a new community. MentiX, BlackWe and Scorpio followed from DT, and other rival clan members and solo players were inducted such as PhiL and Koen..

  • Our first home

    2 / 6 / 2005

    forumplace.com hosted the first basic Åsgard forum which was set up by Sub way back in June 2005 and used for around 6 weeks until the current forum was set up..

  • Our first website

    3 / 6 / 2005

    The first Åsgard website (along with the forum) was hosted on Dutch server funpic.de, until the server was ridden with ads and popups. The original clanasgard.co.uk v1 contained little content, and was based around a template made by Koen. It was written in PHP, which noone else understood aside from Koen himself..

  • Åsgard [AsG] is first introduced as a Pop:Re clan

    1 / 8 / 2005

    Åsgard emerged into the wider Populous: Reincarnated community in August 2005, as they burst into the matchmaker lobby in unison with the new [AsG] tag. Sub Zero was crowned 'Odin' as the more experienced player of the two co-founders. The Æsir consisted of co-leader Hundredth and Scorpio..

  • Change of forums host

    7 / 8 / 2005

    Åsgard forums moved hosts to improve speed and avoid the annoying ads the old server placed. Unfortunately, forumplace.com didn't have an option to back up the database, and many posts and threads were lost. The post count was quickly restored thanks to Sub's forum building skills and the constant participation of AsG members..

  • New member: NanoSaurus

    18 / 8 / 2005

    NanoSaurus is stolen from DT to join the mighty Åsgard..

  • The rules

    31 / 8 / 2005

    The first set of rules was elaborated and published in Åsgard forums. Among the topics it covered, it included guidelines for recruiting members into the clan, AsG name changing policies, lobby and game behaviour standards, and of course the single-clan rule for Åsgard exclusiveness!.

  • Council Change

    1 / 9 / 2005

    Koen joins the Æsir in September 2005 as Scorp joins college and decides to take a step down to ensure Council activity..

  • 2006
  • Council Change

    1 / 1 / 2006

    Early 2006 saw Boyd replace Koen, and the implementation of the high council (which was planned from day one) upon Sub Zero's leave from the game in April. Boyd and Hundredth (as Thor and Loki repectively) inducted NanoSaurus into the council to compensate for Sub's absense..

  • Our second website

    19 / 2 / 2006

    clanasgard.co.uk v2 was created by Hundredth in February 2006, followed by a move to a new server in November. v2 was coded in HTML (with a little Java) and based around the (n00by) iframe format. Although there was a vast improvement in content and features from the first website, the iframe limited many features (such as direct linking to pages from external sites). Despite this, the website received much applause from the clan and community alike for it's vast content (compared with other rival clan sites) and original look..

  • Content and rules revamp

    26 / 2 / 2006

    With the new website and the content updates that followed, Hundredth created a new rules page, a good read for new applicants to the clan and anyone who wants to review Åsgard's policies..

  • 2007
  • Again we move to a new home

    1 / 3 / 2007

    In March 2007 disaster struck, as the Australian server Qualisar (our third host) collapsed and wiped a large part of our MySql database, resulting in the loss of around 5000 forum posts, numerous threads and important parts of our forum (tournament logs, news etc). Due to Hundredth's absense from the game, database backup had been a sloppy, irregular exercise so when the move to new host (Clanwebs, no problems so far) took place, the forum was rewound back to November 2006. Åsgard members took this in their stride, and quickly made up for the lost forum posts and were quickly acquainted to the new forum format (an expansion of existing sections and multiple new discussion boards) implemented by the high council..
