I think you'd find VeCo a nice place to play. There are folks on at all hours...my guild has a few Oceanics in it. You won't find it as busy as an Oceanic server at peak times, but from what you're describing you don't need a TON of interaction.
You'll certainly be able to play the way you want to without a bunch of folks getting in your way. All the "grouping" tools function exactly as you describe and we do get some nasty folks based on our Battlegroup (I'm looking at YOU, Kel'Thuzad!), but that's inevitable wherever you go.
The one thing that I am most proud of on our server is the sense of honor both factions seem to have towards one another. WPvP happens and is very real here, but it's usually structured, both sides know it's coming and has great fun participating in it.
There is very little corpse camping and typical griefing behavior. Of course, there is SOME, but it's not as rampant or corrosive as it is elsewhere.
And might I say, based on what you're looking to do in game, that my guild, The Guardians of Azeroth, might be a good fit for you.
I really am impressed with the attitude of the community here. It seems like a bastion. Now, I'm considering going here. It'd be a fresh reroll, but with that in mind...
I have an alt problem. To date, I have the following characters of significance on other realms:
76 Death Knight
...don't ask why I have duplicates.
I often err towards PvP over PvE at level cap. The gear treadmill has never interested me. I would rather have good gear be a byproduct of the fun I experience, rather than the central goal. It seems like the realm has a fantastic attitude towards open PvP and this is probably what attracts me the most. Are the rumours true? I've always been more attracted to Horde cities, but I'm willing to hear arguments for either side.
Kotake summed it up quite nicely. As a VeCo native since BC, I'll add a few additional tidbits. The Order of the Dragon is another very good RP-PvP guild that participates in world events (Hi Yarrick!). I'm not sure if they're part of the Alliance War Coalition.
If you're into primo PvP, both world and competitively, Warbringer is among the best our server has to offer (Hi Charax!)
Kotake's absolutely right about the camaraderie among guilds on VeCo, at least Alliance side (Can't speak of Horde side as I play my Hordies on Ravenholdt, another CRZ-free realm. However, based on the Horde's usually honorable combat, I'd say the same holds true for them). We all get along and there's very little animosity or vitriol between us...we usually cooperate very well and if there is any rivalry, it's a friendly competition.
Finally, most guilds are very alt friendly, and many have cross pollination between guilds. Many folks have alts in different guilds across the server, which contributes to the tight cooperation between us...we usually know what we're all up to, and if anyone needs an assist.
Regardless of which guild you choose, I know you'll likely find a happy home here on VeCo.
If I reroll here it will be horde side. How is the pop balance here? Will it be difficult to get into a reasonably sized guild on horde side?
If you decide to transfer, welcome. :)

Nod. Despite this server being in the worst possible time zone for me, the people seem nice. That, in itself, is reason enough for me to play here.
Couldn't agree more. I'm in the UK, so it's like an eight hour time difference for me, but that doesn't bother me in the slightest. It's a fantastic server, the people are nice and I cannot recommend it enough.
Basically if it wasn't for this server, WoW would have finished up for me in September last year for good - so it's nice to have this, probably my last, chance to enjoy the game again - and enjoying it I am :)
Hallowed Remnants is an RP-PvE-PvP guild, with a stronger focus on the PvE side of things currently and intentions on diving, head first if we must, into the RP-PvP scene on VeCo. We're hoping to get RBGs up and going and all of that fancy stuff... Just a matter of getting the people that are interested in such. We have three raid groups, all of which have made progress in Normal MSV and some HoF, one of which is still looking for members.
Psst, that means you, people fleeing from the evil of the CRZ. :) If you have any questions and/or want to poke at me with a sharp stick, contact any officer or myself on VeCo. Either they'll get a hold of me, or answer the questions you have.
