Should Cryptic Stop Calling Them Raidisodes?
 
5 people is NOT a raid. :rolleyes:

Tell me when there's 10 or more. I guess six would technically be a raid but I'll have none of that!

How about 5.5, and I throw in a toaster?

But in WoW Blizz defined raids as 40 and eventually worked their way down to 10. Maybe Cryptic is starting with 5 and working their way up to 50.

I would prefer if Cryptic stayed away from the tired "Raid" idea in the first place. I think the large raids in WoW are its weakness, not a design feature other MMOs should emulate. Cryptic has room within this universe to be very creative and invent a new, more fun endgame that doesn't rely on large scale battles with strangers for meaningless loot.

There has to be another way.

Actually the concept of raidisode is closer to the definition of a raid than the garbage WoW has conditioned it's playerbase to consume.

Personally I like this idea.

Fleet Actions are more of a "raid", and appropriately named. Sure, it would be cool if they came up with a more trek-like name for high end, high difficulty, missions. Suggestions?

I am not sure which dictionary you found what an exact defination of raid was. I was under the impression it was a bug spray.
