What are the party/group size limits in City of Heroes?

I can find all kinds of resources online that say which games are multiplayer, but nowhere can I find a listing of "this many people can play together in this game." If someone has a listing like that for MMO-type games, that would be awesome, and save me from basically asking this same question for Champions Online and whatever other MMO's I come across while trying to find one that plays with a larger group right away...


The maximum team size in City of Heroes is 8 players for normal teaming. You can also set up Leagues, which can have a max of 48 players (6 full teams).

The Incarnate Trials, Rikti Mothership raids, and Hamidon Raids are the only times you're really required to have a League of players. Even then, the Incarnate Trials don't require a full 48. The Rikti Mothership and Hamidon Raids are zone events which require pretty much a full zone of people to complete.

Otherwise, the majority of the content, including normal missions, non-Incarnate Trials, and Task/Strike Forces can be completed with 8 players.

    In fact, the majority of the content, barring Task Forces, giant monster events and Trials can be completed solo. – Shadur Sep 28 '11 at 5:02
  • @Shadur True! Though there are those crazy people that do solo MoLRSF runs and succeed! – FAE Sep 28 '11 at 13:55
  • True; perhaps I should've said that pretty much everything barring trials, TFs and GM events are designed to be theoretically soloable by anyone. – Shadur Sep 28 '11 at 13:59
