Was it ever considered to build in a 'Raid' feature?

    ... that let (up to four) groups work together like in WoW or Lotro?

    I know, there's no content for this right now. But meanwhile it became a popular, common and fun feature for modern MMORGs and I think it would be fun in UO too.

    uh 4 groups of people can work together in game right now.

    In fact unlimited groups can work together. Even better they can do it for pvp and pvm!

    Hmmm....ever really checked out factions, and I mean for more than just killing someone else so you can get faction arties?

    No. I never joined factions hence the dumb question. What I actually meant was raiding at instances like Peerless. This is not working with more than one group at a time, am I right?

    *edit: Uh, wait. Don't anwer. It is already embarrassing for me like it is. :blushing: I will think next time before I ask. Sorry.

    You can work in groups using the party feature. You can work in groups using guilds. You can work in groups using factions.

    Maybe you are asking if there can be more than one instance of a peerless going on at a time in a shard.

    I never played WoW, so I dont know what a raid is.

    ...

    A Raid is where 3 or 4 people get 36 to 37 suckers to help them get uber loot using a convoluted out of game managed point system to insure that only the core 3 or 4 people get the real rewards.

    Pretty much was Dermott said, although I only know the Lotro version.

    These are special instances where i.e. 4 groups of each 6 players work together to fight through a large elite-monster crowed area to reach a boss with almost insta-kill abilities. Whether the loot is worth or not it is another question.

    When I asked I was thinking about going to Dreadhorn for example with more than one group to fight together, all at once. 30 vs. Dreadhorn, something like this. Not because it's too hard, just for having fun.

    Nevermind, I admit it was a silly question. Forget about it. :)

    I've never done Dreadhorn, but considering some people have solo'd it, wouldn't 30 people doing it be rather over kill?

    Would be fun for some of the Role Playing Guilds that do limit themselves on stats, gear and skills.

    With Peerless you usually get 3+ entrance keys to the Boss itself - this means you can make parties of 10 people each and use one entrance key per party. Tada! Your raid is served :)

    Last I checked, those were soloable, although much harder than the ML peerless.
