Here is a general idea of what tactics should be put on our alliance raids.
Raid data is from http://zoywiki.com/index.php/LotS/raids/alliance

Small (Two tactics):
10-man: Asymmetric Warfare + Better to Receive
50-man (Luna and Reindeer only): Asymmetric Warfare + Better to Receive

Medium (Three tactics):
50-man (excluding Luna and Reindeer): Suppressive Fire + Espirit de Corps + Flank Attack
Close to death, Flank Attack should be replaced with Better to Receive (BtR) if possible.

Large (Four tactics):
100-man (excluding Wahsh): Suppressive Fire + Espirit de Corps + Flank Attack + Preparation
Close to death, Preparation should be replaced with BtR if possible.

Epic (Five tactics):
250-man: Suppressive Fire + Espirit de Corps + Flank Attack + Preparation + Take a Chance
Close to death, Preparation should be replaced with BtR if possible.
NOTE: On Psi-Hound, Prep should be excluded in favor of Psi-Eye.

Colossal (Six tactics):
Wahsh Al-Sahraa: Suppressive Fire + Espirit de Corps + Flank Attack + Preparation + Take a Chance + Trick or Treat/What Ya Gonna Do?
Close to death (or if BtR is not already applied), Preparation should be replaced with BtR.

Notes:

It is important that if you do not have the proper tactic, do not apply any tactic. While you certainly do have the best intentions by applying your tactic, it is detrimental overall until an officer can switch the tactic.

Why do we put BtR on "Small" raids right away? Why not Suppressive Fire (SF) or Take a Chance (TaC)?
Small raids tend to die quickly, and since BtR is a relatively uncommon tactic, it would be difficult to have it applied unless it's done at the start. Additionally, without Espirit de Corps (EdC), SF is nearly useless. TaC would also be of limited use due to the relatively low health of small raids.

I see SF + EdC + Flank Attack (FA) + Preparation (Prep) a lot. Why?
These four tactics are arguably the best in the game, when used in this combination. It is called the "EdC Chain" and adds considerable damage. And yes, the order matters. SF + EdC is the best two tactic option (unless it's a two tactic raid), SF + EdC + FA the best three tactic option, and of course the whole chain for four tactics. That's why we want SF up first, then EdC, then FA, and lastly Prep (if possible). Since these are alliance raids, it is okay if you put Prep on a four+ tactic raid first. We can fill in the other three easily.

What about BW? It gives a huge damage boost against certain raids!
BW has the ability to grant the hitter a massive increase of damage (something like a glorified critical hit) on some raids, but we will never see it on any raids with four tactics or less. Why? The EdC chain is a better option overall, and in the case of small raids, having BW increases the risk of a huge overhit (and is therefore undesirable). For larger raids, these are generally "honor dumps", so dealing more damage is not necessarily needed.
