Hordeside rp is rebuilding right now between a lower playerbase and playing around the lore in wow we do not have a central hub like the Blue Recluse anymore. We talked about it some in ooc chat today since icly we can't really use Orgrimmar. Hopefully soon we will have more going on.
Horde-side RP has been rebuilding since Wrath times. We have become active maybe 2 months out of a year for a sufficient time, and then fall into despair once again. The guild I have seen active in the past few weeks, seems to be more focused on in-guild RP Then server RP. Not in the guild? Oh well, good luck finding RP. The other guilds, the older guilds on this server, have all but disappeared with only a few members logging on every few days/weeks. Razortalons, Doctas, Modas.. Most Horde people have fled to WrA, and Modas has lost at least 3-4 of our members to WrA in the past month - and yes, 3 of them were officers.
I had a few people interested in joining the Modas as server transfers, or reactivating accounts simply for the chance for Evil RP, and I told them the truth, as I will tell you now, and probably be shunned (once again) for it:
Horde RP is quite dead. Look back to the days of Vanilla and BC and the beginning/middle of Wrath, we haven't seen Horde RP quite like that since the end of Wrath. We had a bit of RP going during Cata, but like always, people got bored and server switched or just quit the game altogether. We had events weekly, we had more than 3-4 people show up at these events, we had a fantastic server where our RPers would raid, PVP and RP and a decent amount of our Horde RPers did this quite well. Sure, we weren't as populated as WrA, with SMC being lag-fest, but we had a decent amount of people willing to RP with newcomers and try different things. We had some people sit in SMC (pre CRZ) and we would have a bit of random RP. Then a lot of people joined certain cliques, and ever since then it really hasn't been the same. I'm not the only one that's seen it, but I seem to be one of the only ones that will come forward and speak freely about my opinions on the subject.
I tell these people who want to transfer here, or come back to play the game just to be in Modas, not to. I don't want these people to spend $15-$30 to come to a server in which my honest opinion is that horde-side is dying, and it has been for years. Alliance side is not bad, it's active, there are quite a few RP guilds, and people work with each other quite well, plus they have the Blue Recluse which helps, but they also have OPEN RP in each other's guilds. I've been on that side numerous times where someone will just go "RPing in Recluse if anyone's interested", and by golly, at least 3-4 people will show up, and it will just grow from there. But Maya, how are we going to grow the server population if you tell people not to transfer? Well, that's' a good question. Have them roll toons here first. Let them level new toons here, and not spend money until they get a good chance to experience it. I've told 5 people to do that, all five people spent a few days here, and went back to WrA. It's just how it works now, sadly. We do not have the population or guild sustainability for RP here on CC-Horde to keep up the legacy our server has had in the past, and we haven't since long before Arjah's great attempt to rebuild CC using World's End Tavern and Ehlina's Server Guild Videos.
So, TLDR, in case you didn't want to read it all: It's not active. We have one-two RP events a week, in which maybe 4-7 people will show up, if you're lucky. We have to my knowledge, one really large active RP guild, and then several small active RP guilds. Modas has currently...6 or 7 active players, I think, if not less. Doctas, I'm not sure since my rogue left, but last I was in it was maybe the same, no more than 8.
I haven't RPed with Liore since he came horde, but that may need to be rectified, since I RP'ed with him Ally and he was darling. :-)
