There are definitely a lot less discussions around strategy, etc nowadays in the forum. It's true that the game has gone for a while now without new updates, but the game as it is, is still fun. You should try the game out first, I'd recommend joining a guild that is active, to get the most enjoyment out of the game.
There are glitches and bugs in the game, but there are also various parts of the game that is fun. The best part really is the people that you will interact with in your guild. You might find the bugs and lack of updates unacceptable for you, or you might enjoy the game regardless. Hopefully it's more fun than not
