I find that on Crom specifically, low level bracket minigames hardly ever get ran. I thought maybe that would increase due to the popularity that low level minis exprienced on Saga but I guess I was mistaken. Also hear that the quality of 80 minis on Crom isnt that good at times, but I guess that’s something that’s more of an opinion of some of the more vocal pvpers. The Arena in Field of The Dead can be fun, but lengths can be extreme at times and chances are you’ll end up dueling the same person over and over, or their alt.
I leveled a barbarian to 50 on Fury and I didnt see a low level mini pop there either, but I found there was enough open world pvp while leveling up to make up for it-- However there was a fair share of 80s trying to increase their k/d ratio. There was little to no PvE on Fury from my experience. However, I did find attending a world boss event there to be fun because of impromptu PvP.
I guess it really depends on how much you’re willing to settle for, in terms of worth. Crom definately is more populated, but theres no open world pvp, and the things like sieges are a joke. Fury can feel exceptionally dead at times and you’ll probably be bored out of your mind there unless you play 100% for the PvP.
I’d probably recommend Crom over Fury so you can experience some of the PvE features like purist instances, which I’ve noticed are being ran more often. Along with occasional pugs. You could probably also find a guild that does both PvE and PvP to satiate both urges.
