The Daily Grind: Which MMO battles did you survive by the skin of your teeth?


There’s nothing more exhilarating than emerging victorious from a fight that you thought you would lose. The other day I was mindlessly going through a pretty basic mission in Dungeons and Dragons Online when suddenly one massive, gigantic slime suddenly burst into dozens and dozens of them. I was swarmed while the dungeon alert counter climbed all the way up to red (which is Bad) and frantically ran backward while shooting as fast as my mouse button allowed.

Yes, I did survive. Yes, I am here to tell my brave story. Yes, a Kickstarter is launching soon to fund a statue in my honor.

What MMO battles remain lodged in your mind because of your seemingly impossible win? Was it that time you managed a lucky crit on another player who ambushed you? The boss fight where your whole party wiped except for you — and you won the day? Let us boast of our most amazing come-from-behind victories today!

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
