There is a Troll handing out free bags, he is quite charming and won the hearts of many new players for sure. That is a very positive thing on our realm, a warm welcome so to speak if you play Horde.
On Ally I felt, that RP does not happen anymore in chats, but I suppose at events? My chars are all too low for city raids and stuff, so I can not comment on the pvp here.
Overall, the first few days were nice, lots of teamplay and also help with quests, or free food and bags. But since I missed the random RP while questing and LFG became more a gossip chat, I stopped playing here on Ally side. This was about a month ago, so things can look different today.
I am currently leveling Horde chars, to see if that might be the more active RP community and that kind Troll was surely a positive sign.
Still trying to find my classic realm, most RP realms I was, were just pvp or pve, with not much RP besides server events, even guilds were not RP, but I suppose that has to do with the server queue situation at the start and now we have non RP guilds on every RP realm.
