Default raiding seems heavily over-camped, was live like that?

I wasn't a big raider way back when (played before Kunark and through velious) but I am curious to know, were raid zones/bosses like hate and fear so heavily camped?

I don't even raid here yet but it seems like things are killed almost as soon as they pop.

No, there wasn't anywhere near this many topped out 50s on live.

There wasn't that many 50s on live that even raided, out of those 50s.

Welcome to January of last year, lol.

Things should open up after Kunark is open a bit.

Most the people that came back, came back to re-live their raiding days or do the raiding they missed out on.

On live there was maybe 2-3 top end guilds per server. P99 is like a sponge that soaked up all those old raiders and new raiders.

Actually... it was on the Rathe. I started a mere 3 months after launch and already there were three planes-raiding guilds.

Folks that don't remember this... did you just not raid then or concern yourself with knowing about it? I didn't raid, but it was hard to ignore the drama a few guilds caused.

It eased with expansions. However, there will always be X% at the bleeding edge of endgame content. The players in that X% will bump into each other a lot.

It seemed quite okay by the time Velious rolled around. Of course... I'll admit I didn't really pay attention to the raiding situation of that end game content. I started getting to the planes and some of the Kunark raids.

But back when there was only one expansion's worth of end game... yeah... it was crowded. You knew this even if you didn't raid.

Guess we were lucky on Tunare. We had a friendly community and guilds didnt really part off and kill stuff by themselves until Velious.

People actually came together and killed stuff instead of trying to be "THE" top guild.

Wow. This would be a different experience than I had on Erollisi Marr.

Cool to see what per-server differences there really were.

Why am I not surprised that Tunare was the hippy feel-good server? lol

Nameless was downright cutthroat.

Bristlebane might have even been worse. Dunno, long time ago. But Fu, RoV, CoL, and every couple months a new guild of defects from those, constantly fighting over every spawn.
