Event Description: Commanding a Raider is a daunting task. Sure, a single Raider can turn an enemy vessel into a cluster of debris in seconds, but that result can quickly turn if even a single thing goes wrong. It's a good reward with a huge risk, and a whole lot of fun.

Join other Raider captains for an afternoon of pillaging. We'll run some queues or missions, attempt some coordinated attacks, see what works, what doesn't work, and have a good time while we're at it.

We ended up having a fun time, first going a round in the Undine Space Battlezone to get a good idea how the Raiders performed, and then onto STFs. Since not everyone had a Raider, we ultimately let everyone participate if they wanted to, regardless of what type of ship they had.

@Edarta was nice enough to create and post a vid where we took a team of 3 Raiders and 2 Escorts into ISA:
It really was a liberating experience. As a player who primarily plays Cruiser builds I was really impressed by the overall feel of flying the Breen Plesh Brek Heavy Raider.

I think an event like this is really enlightening for anyone who tries it and gives it a solid try. Especially players who just avoid escorts.
