Like I said, all previous games established that the term "raid" meant an encounter requiring a collection of players larger than the sum you find in what the game determined as a "group" size.

Therefore, anything above the size of 1 group was defined as a raid. No matter whether its 2, 4 or 8 groups connected to together.

There is a difference between being pedantic and being concerned about the b-asterisation of already established terms just so they can create a "buzzword".

if Cryptic renamed phaser rifles and hand held phasers to be just called "lazer guns", would it bother you? Be honest now. You'd probably feel the need to point out the inaccuracy in the use of the term. And why would you want to point that out? Because there has already been established a term which defines the item more accurately.
