TIL you can start a skellie fray even if you're the only one. Reply to this Post

In hindsight, it makes sense if you vote to start the fray and it's just you... but I thought other people would have joined by then. Oops.

There are people, who are very good at sword fighting bots, that single handedly defeat small skellie frays. starting frays before there are equal number of players vs monsters is fairly common.

oh, and it used to be losing to monsters would still increase your conqueror reputation and some people would just keep fighting and losing until the reached illustrious conqueror reputation. OOO/GH fixed that bug.

Also when you lose a fray, one of the bots leaves. So if there are 6 and only 2 of you, you might need to start it and lose a couple times just to get it into winnable range.

I don't believe this is correct, they simply left because of the time elapsed during the fray? Source

 

Getting bored
If no frays are started against a group of skellies for a set period of time, the skellies will get bored and begin to leave the island, one at a time, every five minutes. This makes it easier to fill skellie fights should they appear in very large numbers.
After a skellie leaves, all challengers will receive a message stating the new number of skellies:
"Bah! We tire of just standing about. Maybe ye'll be willing to fight now that there are just (Y) of us to yer (X)?"
Skellies will stop leaving the island once they reach 5 in number.

You're correct; losing or dismissing a fray does not make one of the bots leave. They only leave once time has elapsed. The number of bots will also never drop below 5, but 2v5 is still considered winnable among some skilled players.
