When you hear the word "raid" in terms of an online game, what do you imagine?

I picture a "vault" like establishment that takes massive numbers to take on.

When I see the word "raid" in a game, that Leeroy Jenkins video from WoW always comes to mind.

Other than that, raid to me is Redundancy Array of Inexpensive Disks.
"You like that?"

I think WoW 10/25/40 man raiding and data protection from drive failure.

I imagine that episode of South Park.

I know that it's an exaggeration for comedic effect, and that it only really applies to the most extreme examples, but some stereotypes exist for a reason.
Sarcasm is sooo hard to convey in a written format.

Isn't that what the Monster Hunter kiddies are trying to label their games these days?

Otherwise... epeen enhancement.

I imagine 30 people waiting around for 2 hours waiting for everybody to get ready. Then they spend 30 minutes clearing trash. Then 1 more hour getting ready for the boss. Then wiping. Then coming back to the boss and waiting 1 more hour before trying again. Then wiping. Then calling the day done and saying we'll try again next week.

WoW raids. 20+ people working together to bring down a gigantic boss.
Look! The East is burning red!
