You're right, currently world events happen on a server (or at least faction) wide basis. But then WoW has no instanced housing.In City of Heroes, there was fairly widescale roleplay until Supergroup bases were introduced. Then global RP slowly subsided and became SG RP, in bases or starting in bases and moving out with no opportunity for others to become involved.In LotRO there was never much RP, but what there was took place in inns and public areas. Then player and Fellowship housing was added and the RP moved from the public arena to Fellowships with little interaction with those outside your Fellowship.Your comment about briefings without anti-RPers is right on the mark, but this happens even in full-on RP environments where that doesn't happen. If the RP happens in private, the result is that new players see NO RP happening, then the roleplay stagnates and dies. I've watched it happen, I'm not discussing theory, I'm talking about experience.
