Game-killer? I'd say exactly the opposite. No new player is going to start WoW after Wrath knowing they have months of grinding ahead just to get to the new content. The alternative would have been to allow new players to create a level 58 or 60 character from scratch, which would have been even worse. Is this an ideal answer? No. Was it necessary? Absolutely. Even before this there were level 60's that didn't know how to play; I don't see much difference now.

One problem with that theory. Wouldn't all of the content, including the "old world" content be fresh and new to a new player? Granted, some of the old world quests could definitely be improved...

Unfortunately, it'd also be devoid of other players, and ultimately you'd know you were just killing time before you got where the real action was, the stuff you were promised...

Exactly what I was going to say.. there have always been, and always will be idiots in the game regardless of whether or not they actually had to play from lvl 48-59. There was a story on the WoW forums a while back about a rogue in the mid-40s who someone noticed was only using one sword... he asked if the guy needed to repair, and was told "no I'm fine." Turns out the rogue didn't know he could have been dual wielding since lvl 10.
