Max Raid group size

Postby GladDog » Thu May 14, 2020 4:00 pm

Over the last 15 years, maximum team sizes in a raid have been dropping in MMOs as graphics quality has gone up. Assuming there is a good FPS, what is the best cap on raid size?

16 Players
24 Players
30 Players
50 Players
75 Players
100 Players
No cap at all, but give me at least 30 FPS on a decent computer.

I voted 50. I think beyond that it is nigh impossible to organize. Events are different, like the Rikti invasion events in Coh. Since people are not focused in a small area of the zone, a lot more people can be involved.

went with 50 also. and for the same reasons. getting 50 individuals to do different tasks is difficult to say the least.

also putting a league together with 50 individuals is time consuming.

So far in the voting, 50 is the number 1 choice, followed by 30, and then by no cap at all.

As I mentioned in another post, we are doing invasion testing. We're pretty confident that we can get 50 or even 60 heroes fighting in tight quarters (which is the worst case scenario for FPS), with quite a few more enemies on the map. FPS seems to be in the range of 25-35 most of the time, with obvious benefits to more powerful computers. But we seem to be there.

All of these tests are out in the open, in our worst spot in the city. In a special raid map, we can likely do more.

Yep, more votes but pretty much the same results, with 50 being the number one pick. This sounds good, we will be able to do this.
