    Then there is no biggest one, you can always take the factorial: (1+1+1+1)!!!!!!!!!!.. and so on

    So if decimal system is allowed, why is factorial not? That's really arbitrary. If you want to make this a fair question you have to list which operations are allowed.

    use factorial but it will be a smaller no.

    No it won't: \[(1+1+1+1) = 4, \quad 4! = 24\]\[(1+1+1+1)!! = 24! = 620448401733239439360000 > 285311670611 = 11^{11}\]
