Spoiler:- History of our Ascent:
The History of Ascension
We will rise to be the legends your descendants speak of...
Once there stood two great clans, Team Legacy and Legacy. Each possessed the awesome power of gods and were feared by all. However conflict arose, and the two giants raged over the right of who could name their sacred clan "Legacy". Fueled by a burning passion for battling and honour, the two clans prepared for war; a war so cataclysmic it would remain as a near mythical legend for the rest of eternity. The day before the war, the two clans hung on the precipice of war, each ultimately facing pure annihilation. All was surely lost, but then the tides turned! A brave and radical plan emerged, one so dramatic and controversial it was hard to speak of it.... The two Legacies had to merge! The members of the two great clans would-at first- not accept these new terms, but in time they warmed to the idea, and although they had a lustful desire to rip the others to shreds, they cast their differences aside. Out of the Chaos that had surrounded the tow clans for what seemed an age, The Legacy arose! An entirely new super-clan formed of the two ancient giants, a sheer brute force, unrelenting, malicious and unstoppable.
For a year they reigned, and went through much. There were a total of 4 leaders of the merged Legacy; Jahz, Rammagoo, Twilight Trainer, and finally Ger. Each led a great rule, but over time, Legacy began to decay... Its once great members departed from the clan, in search of new, more active clan. Slowly Legacy deteriorated, and both Ger and UDK tried to save it, both attempts failing. And thus, we retired The Legacy, so it would not be further tarnished, and from these ashes, we rise.We... shall... lead... THE ASCENSION!

You are new to the clan. It all seems very daunting and confusing to you. However, you have potential, and your tutors believe in you. (All those who are yet to be tested are placed into this rank.)
You have proved you have potential, and are beginning to grasp the basic battling skills. You look promising and have a bright future. Keep up the good work!
You are beginning to rapidly understand the metagame, and are becoming more competent while battling, and make much less mistakes. Keep on ascending!
You showed a lot of understanding of the current metagame, however still can't match the prowess of our Soldiers. You can better yourself easily, though. You no longer need a tutor; however you can still have one.
You're a fierce battler; you have talent and passion and scare the wits out of your opponents. You are preparing to challenge the Ascension Frontier and your peers respect you. You're already beginning to ascend high above the clouds.
This rank stands for The Ascension Frontier Chiefs and their current peers. You're a formidable warrior; common fighters bow before you. You command respect from all around you and are best not provoked. Your legacy is great.
You have ascended to being a leader of men; a fantastic battler. Everyone has heard your name, and you have the chance to have a sealed spot on the clan's War Team. You are reaching far above the clouds, getting closer and closer to the Final Ascension.
This rank is reserved for the conquerors of The Ascension Frontier. All are humbled in your presence; you’re renowned for your courage and ferocity in battle. Enemies shiver at the mention of your name. Your legacy is being woven into legend, children idolize you, and your story shall be told for decades to come!
There is not one person who is not unaware of your name. It is fabled, and in some cases, mystified. You have nearly ascended to the status of a God, and the God's favor you as their greatest of warriors. You have made an epic for yourself. You have ascended so far and greatly, and spent much time doing so. Soon, you shall prepare for your Final Ascension.
You have reached divine status! Your memory in The Ascension will last for years to come no matter if your presence is here or travelling the world. Your Ascension is known worldwide and you have implanted your own mark into the hearts and minds of all around you. You are among the greatest heroes ever known, and all respect you.
This rank is only for Leaders, and Co-Leaders. You shall be remembered forever; as one of those who made The Ascension and all it's affiliates possible. You help it run smoothly and produce the most fearsome army this world has ever known.

Thanks to all the past leaders of The Legacy (Jahz, Ger, Ram, LG, and Twi) for leading the wonderful clan that Ascension has stemmed from. We shall rise from the ashes, and make you guys proud, for we aim to not disappoint.
