Stands for Random Ass Public Event. This is a feature that plagues next-gen MMOs - such as Wildstar, Destiny, Need for Speed Rivals, Final Fantasy XIV, ect. - that developers incorporate in their games in an attempt to 'revolutionize' the industry, when in reality, it was a feature that was mastered by Guild Wars 2 before other developers really started to catch on to it. This will quickly become the pathetic joke that is the 'standard' for MMOs, just like DPS.
(System): You have suddenly joined a R.A.P.E.! Gank this monster/enemy with hundreds of other random people for no reason to get XP!
