I used to play this game at the beginning before all the expansion. At level 60, I was only into PVP tho. No big raid or anything, just PVP.
I was still a student at the time so my team would just queue for the next battleground and I was doing my homework/studying while waiting. When we were called into the fight, I would do the thing and then go back to homeworks
We were top 10 alliance side team on the server.
It was fun and all but had to dedicate too much time to be as well geared as some people doing 40 man raids. I was only equipped with blue items but was still able to kill other rogue (my main PVP toon was a rogue) 1 vs 1 that were geared in purple.
I think it is more casual friendly now with the queue for the raid cross server to find people. The 5 man instance gives nicer gear, etc etc.
I haven't touched the game in years, I thought about installing it again to see the new thing but passed
