I've been playing quite a bit of Order on Badlands since I picked up my free 14 days, I think I may do another month. I knew that if I started playing again I would probably end up enjoying it, the pvp in WAR is much more enjoyable for me than in any other game.
I hooked up with Dragons of Eternity, Dwooid's guild, and they've got a pretty good number of folks playing now. Mostly newer players, but still log in during prime-time to 15 or more people online, which is enjoyable. I guess the newer players is what suprised me the most; most people talk about WAR like it's on its last leg and no one new is looking at it. I guess that doesn't seem to be the case to me, as DoE has at least 5 or 6 brand new players. It's kinda cool to be able to help people through the old standards like BS crit weapons or city sewer runs again.
T2 seems to be somewhat destro heavy, T3 seems to be VERY order dominated around peak hours right now, and T4 is SEVERELY destro controlled all week long, especially on weekends. Altdorf was under attack probably 4-5 times a day all weekend, if not more often, but in the instances I was in, there was some decent fighting.
