Danny "Ralsu" Gourley doesn't dislike raiding. He's killed a few

players out of the game and into an exercise of number crunching and
metagaming. This week, he tells Ten Ton Hammer readers why he thinks
raiding and free-to-play gaming don't mix:
Raid guilds these days are organized (almost to a military standard), professional gamers. They play for long hours, practicing strategies until they perfect them.
