Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
FFA PvP, lots of crafting (though fairly basic, there's a wide variety), world building/destroying, home/city ownership, politics that matter, decent character customization, leveless, naval and tank warfare, mounted combat, non-instanced so community matters... it's got a lot of features old time MMOers just aren't getting from most of the new MMOs. It's not perfect, but imo, every patch thus far has been GREAT. Biggest issue is the grind and the amount of supplies you need for if/when you die. If you don't find a good group to hang with, the game can be very boring.
