The discord is more active than the forums mostly. As for worthwhile, it depends on what you are looking for. The non-leeching environment at least makes every level you do feel genuine which sure does feel worthwhile to me.
Then again, it's a 1x server at heart and will take some effort to accomplish what you are set to do. This server is stable in the way that it's been online for almost 3 years. Some players take long breaks only to come back a while later to pick up where they left off which makes their effort not go to waste either, so there's that.
