Active depends on who you talk to. Some folks claim Defiance is already going downhill. The friends they used to play with aren't there anymore. Stuff like that.
Me, I've added new friends, but I still haven't gotten the 15 Friends Playing At Once pursuit item. Still see plenty of people at arkfalls. And someday I'll bother doing more multiplayer but the last time I tried to just jump in, there weren't enough people who wanted to play at the same time to start a Shadow War match.
So, if you want PvP, you might need to work on extra friends to be sure you have somebody handy to fight.
Mic is nice to discuss the game and any trading you want to do. Unfortunately, some people have a mic and misuse it. Other than the volume control on your headset, or forming a Party of maybe one, you can't really silence them. I hope they fix that...
