I was gonna point that out, glad i dont have to type all that ;p
I want to add that you keep saying you don't care about PvP, YET YOU KEEP REPLYING AND REPLYING!
Exactly, Its ridiculous how someone can even complain about raiders, when in fact a group of champs that aoes can pretty much take 4-10 ppl while tanking.(w/cleric healing plus pots)
Example: a raider may beat a champ or bourg 1v1 depending on luck of stuns and timing of pots. But in war, a group of aoe`ing champs or bourgs with their aoe stuns and grenades would have the upper hand vs a group of raiders.
