The Royal Elders are a subclan of the Hive, alongside the Specimens, the Chronicles, the Elite Hunters, the Shredders, the Shadowers, the Wolves, and the Ring of Saturn clan (meaning they cannot become enemies of them). Overall, this was one of the last-created subclans before the Subclan Rule came into effect in August 2013. This subclan has close ties with the Hive, as the Hive will come to any aid the Royal Elders needs. Now like the Hive, the Royal Elders are found not only in Aliens vs Predator, but they also include events in Aliens: Colonial Marines. Unlike most clans, like the Hive and Shadow Lycans, the Royal Elders do not base their clan off of one of the prime species in AvP; instead, their clan is based off of both aliens and predators. Although this clan alone is minimal in comparison to others, it holds a few of the better players in AvP, such as italian-stal, knownmarine, and XDarkharXD. The whole clan is all led by Hive member and Berserker Matriarch clan leader knownmarine (making it a subclan by definition), a moderate alien player who can even put up a pretty good fight against Hive Matriarch italian-stal. The Hive is still lucky to have a nice subclan, as well as any ally out there willing to help the Hive. However, only Royal Elders' members and KingAzxoll9 are allowed to edit this page; no other Hive members please. *NOTE: THIS CLAN IS NOW FALLEN AND THUS THIS PAGE IS NOW ON THE PREVIOUS SUBCLAN.*
Just like the Hive, the Royal Elders have their own rank system. Also like the Hive, there are both natural ranks and special unnatural ranks. Like the Hive rank system, the Elders also have a prestige system, except it is 4 levels of ranks. When one starts out, their first prestige is called "Youngblood Chestburster" prestige. (So the first rank is "Youngblood Chestburster" Facehugger). The second prestige is called "Alpha," the third is "Legend," and the last is "Warrior Lord." Unlike the Hive, the rank system has both alien and predator ranks. These are the normal ranks of this clan in order:
- Egg (Initiates, premembers)
- Berserker Alien
- Wolf (halfway rank)
- Berserker Rhino Alien
Now, there are also special unnatural ranks that give members extra authority over other Royal members. These unnatural ranks are achieved by an unknown way, except for the Tracker Empress rank, which was achieved for the first 5 initiates of the clan. These ranks are:
- Deacon Elite
- Elite Queen
- Tracker Empress
- Berserker Matriarch
These ranks are members that should be highly respected in the Royal Elders, like members of unnatural rank should be respected in the Hive.
Royal Elder EventsEdit
So far, the Royal Elders have few activities and they are expecting more to come. But just like the Hive, they are open to their members' ideas for new events. So Royal Elders' members, feel free to share your ideas with the Beserker Matriarch.
Special Rounds (Duels)
Initiation: the Initiation into the Royal Elders is slightly similar to that of the Hive, except it is moderately more difficult. In this special round, the challenging Egg rank initiate fights the Beserker Matriarch knownmarine. To complete the round and get into the clan, the initiate must persecute the host of the match (meaning kill them 5 times in a row without dying). Now, just like the Hive Initiation, members may play as any species they want. Unlike the Hive, knownmarine does not go easy. Plus, knownmarine is a moderate alien player, so much less people are likely to succeed this Initiation than a Hive one, meaning there will be fewer but better-playing members. If the Egg wins, they are now the first rank of Facehugger.
These are the current members of this Hive subclan. Any members not actually part of the Hive are considered allies. Some of these members are unnaturally ranked and are marked with that unnatural rank next to their name.
