I've been a hardcore raider in Rift since their release of Hammerknell Fortress. Trion has put out some incredible, challenging content overall. With their Storm Legion expansion the raids were subpar and they are now turning to 100% public testing (which basically means 95% of your raid progression will occur on a test server). My expectation is that the game will die if they proceed with the public raid testing. I thought I would have nowhere to go in case Rift dies this summer, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover Wildstar. http://www.wildstar-online.com/uk/news/what_is_wildstar_raids.php This excerpt really sold me on the philosophy of the raids here. In Rift I've written sixteen spec guides, and I hope to contribute to Wildstar in guides, theorycrafting, and general advancement of knowledge among the community.
