The Final Symphony
What can I say! Our last raid on Sunday and the server was all about lag and them it crashed! We were done with RoR! Monday was supposed to be HD release!
For our lucky, they changed the day of the release to Wednesday and we decided to give it one more try! IT WAS OUR DESTINY!
My brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of our RAIDERS fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of the RAIDERS comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, LETS GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY!
On our last try, on the last moments WE GOT IT!
One more time I have no words to thanks the team that was there! BE PROUD! WE GOT IT ALL: SMAUG T2 CHALLENGE, EREBOR T2 CHALLENGE and FLIGHT T2 CHALLENGE!
The time of the raiders in LOTRO is over! Time to go to Grey Havens and take the boat! We shall leave middle earth to it fate!
We go with the felling that we completed our mission! We did all challenges that the game had to offer! We are in a place where just a few players stand!
Was an amazing 3 years journey that could not end in a better way! For you that stay, I wish all the best and keep having fun!
Special thanks to Travorn, Jacco, Uki, Shae that victory is also yours! We would never EVER get it done without all the time you all gave to the team!

We did it!!!! Was awesome, thanks for the fun you guys <3 Well done to everyone for sticking with it ^_^
Yay!!!! I am still so excited we were victorious! Thanks so much Utleth for allowing me to join up and defeat Flight with you. Episch.
You know you're going to have to un-retire when they bring back raids for future content that doesn't involve massive scale battles, right?
Congrats to Utleth and friends for completing Flight Challenge. Must have taken quite a few attempts what with all the lag.
However, raiding is not dead yet. You will have to do all of these raids again at challenge at 95, especially with the class changes, will make things much different. Not to mention there's the challenge of getting a platinum rating on the Deeping Wall raid in Helm's Deep.
Still though, congrats!
The official word from Sapience is there are no more raids, Big Battles are the present and future.

Doesn't matter, real raiding stopped with OD.
