Off the top of my head, my craziest moment in gaming was in Ultima Online before it was gear based. I was in a role playing guild as a militia general. The RP guilds had enacted a territorial project and a neighboring guild with it's oversized alliance wanted some of our land. We knew going into it that we would be slaughtered. We had only 5 people on at the time and they had a strong 50. Well I decided outright when we got to the location that I'd just take out their leader at least.
When the call was made to start the battle, I rushed after their leader. He noticed I was targeting him and ran. I ended up chasing him way off into the distance and took him out. I was quite frankly shocked that I was still alive as the animation for some 10 or so spells finally caught up to me. All I could figure was that there was so many spells casted that they glitched. Thanks to that glitch, I was able to live and continue an assault.
Well, I preceded to take out about 10 stragglers for quite a while until people started getting fed up with me. I was a magic user with Hiding skill, so I was quite good at picking people off. They sent out a crew with a person able to detect hiding (a shock!) and due to keeping RP politics (people were fussing out of character that I was 'dragging it out') I let them take me out.
Suffice to say, I managed to turn an obvious slaughter fest into a game of cat and mouse-with-a-machinegun. Taking out so many, including a leader, was quite satisfying. Ah UO, was such a fun game before itemization killed it.
