Raid Fails

JurixeJurixe Where you least expect itMember Posts: 1,651 @@ - Legendary Achaean
We've all done stupid things in raids, like accidentally beckoning your team into an enemy group/totem, bombing your own teammates in retardation, breathraining your own teammates, everyone hitting the deliveranced guy even though the leader shouted 'HE HAS DELIVERANCE' about 50 times...

Post some of your most facepalm-worthy raid moments! Maybe I'll write about them if I find them funny enough :D

    I remember seeing someone get absolved while trying to get kai before a skirmish once. That was hilarious, but have completely forgotten who or even when that was.

    There was one time where I died to a barrage of nine arrows through meteors instantly, only to be revived seconds later by Carmell whilst the barrage was still going. I promptly died 3 seconds later. That wasn't really funny at the time, but absolutely hilarious afterwards. I imagine Daeir sort of getting up off the floor, taking a few arrows to the head and then falling back to the floor again, while Carmell kind of looks on apprehensively.

    I would call that a great success, actually. Hasar dying in a raid is an instant victory for every side.

    I was still a raid-baby back then! One minute I'm just spamming cwho and shit, next minute I go straight into a totem with no metawake on. Good times, haha :D

    When I was in Targossas, someone from Ashtan forced me to kick guards (not naming any names!). I was rezzed like 3 times on top of guards before they got them pacified  and realized what they were doing. All in all, I think I died a good 5 times to their guards including the initial burst/true death.

    Hah, similar thing happened to <name deleted> when my character was Hashani still. Some Mhaldorian serpent was asked to leave or something and was clearly mad about it. So it came into the Crossroads, where everyone was standing, it hypnotizes <Hashani Reagent at the time> and force kicks a guard. I was an Alchemist at the time so I do the stupidest thing and just Revive him standing on the guard stack and he instantly dies again. I eventually had to take his body into the forest to revive.

    Just a couple of days ago.  I track to Sothantos after he tells everyone come.  Land and promptly die to a group of Mhaldorians.  I still don't know where Sothantos and co went in the moment it took me to track.

    I repressed this one, but we were fighting on Jaru road vs a fairly large Shallam group. I was Mage at the time and I was going to drop retard. I get the retard off and Deladan (thanks for the reminder @Carmain) flies immediately. He then breath rained and only killed our team somehow. I made it a point during every following raid to sit him down before engaging and tell him to NOT FKING BREATHRAIN.
    And then he did anyway.  Until he joined Mhaldor to breathrain that team instead.  Then finally he joined Hashan, where he discovered there was nobody to breathrain and promptly went dormant.
    Nah, he got a few good breathrains in here before going dormant.

    Oh! I remember one time I was raiding with a group in Mhaldor and we attacked an unkillable denizen and tried to kill it for a while that was fun!

    All the raids prior, and some of the raids after, it became mandatory to say, "DO NOT ATTACK THE PARADISE BIRDS." while raiding Shallam.

    Too many to count, from earring entire groups into world burn+totems to our escape pilgrimage holder either leaving or letting the rite run out without refreshing there are lots of things that can go wrong.  Our worst raid failures always involved failed attempts at infiltrating a city without a serpent.

    Man, I leap into guards at least once every raid. I also suck balls at standing totem.

    I've had some epid Deliverance bombs, though! The Great Numb Dive into Cyrene Guards Bomb of 2010.

    Pretty sure your most shining moment was Operation Worldburn Targ Saferoom 2013.

    To everyone who has to put up with me- I am so, so, so sorry.

    Agreed, I screwed up way too many times with totem props, lol. Apologies to everyone as well!

    IN one of the recent raids, I had just switched class and hadn't gotten my sword forged yet. So most of the raid without realizing it I was running around with no sword and still trying to shoot people with my bow. When I finally realized, I resorted to runnin into people and using Annihilation to try to throw them into totems and guards.

    More details! Moar! Tell me more stories!

    These are pretty hilarious so far though. I think my favourite is Hasar's story about @Alcinae, just because the imagery is so funny :D

    Also what happened with the paradise birds?

    Oh, man, I wish I logged this. But, we were on Hashan's northern defendable. So there's quite a few rooms south (Road of Eternity) some with guards, some not.

    @Alcinae is uprooting or propping, I forget which, but he's unmassed. (Too poor for Shackle, what a scrub). Some completely random novice is there, who I try to gust out, but he gets adducted back in a few times...so I let it be.

    THEN @Nizaris uses demon blast. However, he used the untargetted version (if there even is a targetted one, I have no idea), and yes, he did blast the novice out...but he blasted @Alcinae down the entire south exits into the Road of Eternity.

    @Alcinae died. The end. :D
    I think I did something like, pt Oops!, afterwards.

    Oh, and I -did- try to target it with a DEMON BLAST <newbie>. But ... it doesn't take a target, and so DEMON BLAST got matched by the game, and @Alcinae got fired down the gun barrel that is the Road of Eternity. And, the newbie, of course, went the other direction (figures).
