Assuming this isn't accounted for by non-play related sources...One thing that I find sort of discouraging about the current game is the emptiness and pointlessness of the old game. Maybe this is because I'm on a low pop server, but it is new, so it should be getting players. Anyway, Azeroth pretty much feels irrelevant now. When I think about leveling an alt I find myself thinking, "Must get to 58 so I can go to Outland!!!" Sure, there were discouraging things in pre-tbc WOW, but now it feels like the only "life" in the game is 58-70. Everything else feels meaningless. So for old timers the focus has limited and for new comers the old stuff is devalued by the established play base. I mean, it must be a real drag finding a group for VC/WC up to ST. Apart from the surge of Belfadins and the odd Space Shammy, there just isn't much life there. Hopefully the 60-70/Outland excitement will wane and people will reinvigorate the mid levels.One of the things I really felt was missed in TBC was the 20-58 zones. That's a huge chunk of play time (probably the biggest for newer, casual players) and it was not upgraded the way 1-20 and 58-70 was. I hope in the next expansion they focus more on the older stuff and making the gap between beginning and end game more appealing.Shrug.. 2 cents, not deep thoughts.
