    Deep crafting does not exist.This is a long topic in of itself and what is considered deep my not be what i consider deep game design.

    Faction vs faction NEVER interests me enough to look further,i must have at least 20 factions in the world to make it interesting.
    "viable solo"wouldn't that be like the ANTI faction versus faction game ?Albeit most games even those utilizing groups/teams/factions are still just solo games with a weak shell over it.

    Healthy vibrant...

    Well your choices are going to be the worst choices on my list....Wow....Lineage games...I believe GW2 has something along these pvp lines,AION yeah i am sure there are others,all well off my radar of games to play.


    Oh one actually did coem to mind that i would MAYBE play and one-two other YOU might play.YOU might play Crowfall or Mark jacobs game "forget name of it".

    The Game and likely the ONLY one i would consider and that is IF it comes out as decently playable which i think it might, would be ....The New World.The problem is that it has been delayed again and might not come out until the end of the year or later.I would question weather it is a delay or a "put on hold" idea because they have been frantically trying to get other games in order so likely moving employees around game to game.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    While there are some that fit the list - I wouldn't recommend any of them in current state.

    Sounds like the OP wants DAoC but I am not sure that is an option anymore. I think the game is still around but no clue if many are playing it. There used to be private servers, not sure if that is still an option.

    How's ESO for grouping with friends?

    Back at launch it wasn't very good, but I'm wondering today if it's better with level scaling.

    It works just fine with two players, even with a high level disparity. I haven't tried it with more than that.

    It had phasing issues at release where sometimes group members couldn't see each other if you had done something as simple as turn in a quest that the other hadn't. Disappearing and reappearing players was what annoyed some.

    But that whole thing was revamped years ago and now, although the phasing still happens, you can always see other players. If your group mates or even those you're not grouped with, are on a different phase they may not see the NPC you're talking to if it's a phased NPC but they'll see you seemingly staring into space and you can see them.

    In Auridon, the starting Aldmeri Dominion area, there's a quest where you talk to the queen who is standing outside a building. After you finish that quest and later on meet her where she asked you to go, when you come back to Auridon you'll often see a group of people standing in front of that same building but the queen and her entourage is nowhere to be seen.

    It's just you that can't see her because you already did that quest and moved on. Those who haven't can see and interact with her.

    umm.. Champions of Regnum? (this is an old style click to target mmo)

    1) Definitely has 3 faction RvR (Alsius, Syrtis, Ignis)

    2)Yes it is an mmo. There are instances, but the vast majority of the time it is everyone in one instance hungry for war (waiting around chilling and chatting and waiting for war to arrive or plotting the next war attack).

    2) Sorry -i wouldnt call Regnum's crafting that deep. They did introduce crafting around 2017. But it's really basic stuff. I think they see crafting as a 5-8 year endeavour (ie: low priority). but....... you can collect mags to make what are magna weapons, and bosses do drop some pretty spectacularly visual weapons.

    3) Yup its pretty busy most of the time. Here is a public record of war activity: https://www.regnumsentinel.com/en/ra/events/
    Each of those battles tend to look like this: 
    Latest 2021 Canival Event was gigantic. One player recorded a battle here: 

    4) Yes.  Regnum lets you solo the whole lot, or join in the faction war. You can solo the entire content all the way to max level. It's a tough grind game,you can get to around lvl 30ish in about 2 weeks. After which you can join the war, but you wont be very strong. You can also earn xp from player kills, but you really become meaningful in war at around lvl 50 (about 2 months steady grind). You can level all the way to max lvl60 in war (maybe 2 yrs of war). The difference between level 50 and 60 is about 3-5% in hp and abilities.

    Feel free to ask questions!

    (other RvR games i could suggest: Warhammer Return for Reckoning (this is a private server). DAOC and GW2.

    Phoenixlive is a strong DAOC private server atm.

    This game is downright awful when I played it - doubt it's changed much.
