I like strategy, free to play, rpg games that don't focus on pvp or competitive play.
lately all I've found are button mashing, click spamming, pay to win, heavily unbalanced grinding stuff

Perhaps give EVE Online a try... PVP is an important part of the game, but there are literally thousands of players that never fire a shot at another player.

Guild Wars would be the obvious recommendation if you would prefer a fantasy MMO. One time cost, balanced, optional PVP, fair microtransactions, and the expansion comes out soon so the servers will be quite populated.

I'll check out EVE, I played gw2 but found the level scaling annoying and it was still grindy.
EVE online is pay to play.

Ragnarok Online hands down(make sure you go to the Warp Portal site, and not some pserver site. Also regester through WarpPortal, do not register through Steam)

Even to this day, It's still the greatest MMO ever made.

As for your desire for strategy, it depends on whad job9s0 you want to play(each job usually has 3 entirely differen't skill sets, and you can even mix, and match if you want), stat build, and equipment(epuipment in this game is completely customizeable, and due to the card system, you can make just about every piece of equipment you want, to fit a specific situation).

RO is among one of the first MMOs ever made, and has been getting expansions(and still does on a reg basis) ever since, so the customizations, the amount of jobs, and play style options, is insane the days

Dunno how long since last time you played GW2, but a lot is different now from when it first came out. Also, if you want some variation from normal leveling, you could check if there's activity in WvW (I see you're not too fond of pvp, but it could be worth a try). If you have a lot of crafting materials and a crafting bonus, this can also be a quick way to get some extra levels.

Runes of Magic has always been fun. As have been Aion, Rift, Star Trek Online, Champions Online, Marvel Heroes 2015, Star Wars Online, EQ2, and LotRO. All are F2P. I've also heard DC Universe Online and Neverwinter are good but I myself can't play either despite wanting to for various reasons.
