If you seek inter group RP, GE is pretty much a waste of time unless you manage to find those few rare sparks you can strike up a story with. Otherwise it is the ubiquitous cap and release RP. I have been out of gor a few months now only just come back properly in the last couple of weeks. Nothing has changed other than some of the people moving into different groups. Some groups returned knocked about and left again and some have reopened and are sticking it out. To be honest as Tantus has said, give the raid groups a go and enjoy the fishbowls, the mazes and the snipe fests.
