So what is the biggest raid you ever took part in?
What game was it?
Is Raiding something you like to do still?

    Raids of 50+ people were pretty common in EQ. Even on p99 we saw raids that size. On the PvP server there were multiple guilds in an alliance that contested us and we'd often see 50 players on each side contesting raid mobs. Was pretty epic.

    Awesome! I have heard of like 200+ people taking on Bosses in EQ back in the day.

    In WoW, I was in a massive guild at the time and we killed all of the alliance faction leaders on the same day to get the "For the Horde" achievement. We had 3 full raid groups with 40 people per group.

    I was in a few Chatha pug raids in AOC that were limited to 24.. but if you include all the drop outs and re-recruiting, they probably added up to 50+ : /

    I believe several hundred taking down Antharas in Lineage 2.

    This wasn't "me" or any alliance I knew but it's just a video I found:

    Good times, 

    That is why they called them Epic Raid Bosses.  ;)

    Wasn't Kerafyrm the Sleeper in Everquest like a 200+ person boss kill?

    Lotro had some pretty huge numbers the first few weeks after release. I would say over 100 on either side which was a slideshow for most people obviously, but considering how many games cant get that many people in an area that small it was, in hindsight, fairly impressive. I would guess the most combined was 300-320.

    Also the old school WoW fights between southshore and tarren Mills would see maybe a couple hudred people spread out over the area.

    Hamidon raids in City of Heroes.  The older version had a limit of 239 participants.  I was in on more than 100 of those raids, many, many of them as main tank.

    Later on, they simplified the raid and limited participants to about 80.

    ------------------------------------

    Early in Star Trek Online there were the raids on the Crystalline Entity; I am not sure, but I think they were limited to 99.  We filled that a lot of times.


    The world is going to the dogs, which is just how I planned it!

    I was in a 400 person fleet one day in EVE and we flew through a system where a low sec incursion was taking place so we decided to stop and do it.  I've never seen NPC's melt faster.  Actually, our fleet was so big, we didn't have enough room for everyone so we had to break up into two fleets.  What a day, what a glorious day!  

    But, oh, EVE is dead, so that couldn't have happened.  :awesome:

    The largest organized raid was way back in old WoW the 40 player Molten Core raids. In my guild, they lasted 8-12 hours at that time and you were just done after these sessions.

    As for other raids, i have been in some city raids in WoW with 120+ people. Also back then, when there wasn't a gazillion of guards spawning out of nowhere and you could crash your realm that way.
    Sadly over time Blizzard did all kinds of crap to prevent these raids on cities, right according to what has always been their motto: if players find a way to have fun, shut it down.

    Lineage 2 on the Kain server (Fallen Angels guild)  ^___^

    First Castle siege for Aden castle ( I think that was the name of it)


    Around 1000 people or more were in attendance it was just massive

    like 50-100 guilds all watching

    Controlling the Huge siege golem as a tiny dwarf was AMAZING !!!  some of the best MMO memories


    Second would have to be Main tanking in Everquest 1  when there was No limit on raid sizes


    was some really massive raids back then

    6x6 players in EQ2, did a bunch of them. Was a while since I raided though, a few years now.

    Of course I done far more massive fights in GW2 since but that wasn't raiding.
  • Elevenb4Elevenb4 Member UncommonPosts: 361
    PoE expac of Everquet 1. had a 186 people there to get a first kill on Ralos Zek. Never forget that day. I think it's my best MMO memory. We were bouncing off the walls for hours after that.

    World leaders pre-wolk. they were 83 and we were 70. a combined 5 raids were assembled, nearing 200 players total. We killed 3 of the 4. Thrall never spawned.

    Unless we count the last Test vs Goons fight, which was...like 4k ?

    EQ, PoT did almost all of the bosses in one day, normally took 2 to 3 days. Was in the top guild on my server when I played.
