Believe it or not everybody, there are still new people that play this game all the time - the old content is there so that people can level and learn their character. Eliminating old world content would mean eliminating backstory and lore, which is part of the personality of this game. Not to mention that if they eliminate old content, Blizzard would have to rework a lot of mechanics that work just fine right now, like professions and such. Simply saying that characters should just start at level 55 is completely out of character for this game, and to my knowledge EVERY other rpg, whether it's online or console makes you start within levels 1-10. Most of the suggestions I've read on here show a complete lack of understanding of how these games work. "They should change it because leveling sucks." - Seriously, don't play rpgs then. People play rpgs because there's obviously the fantasy or sci fi setting, in addition to the fun of growing your character from a weakling to a powerhouse max level character. That's what's great about this game - you can approach it any way that you want. Not everybody levels a character to 80 in under two weeks (I'd wager the vast majority of players don't), and not everybody raids or does the arena. That's why blizzard has so many things available, whether it's old content or new content. As much as you nerd elitists like to think that everything should revolve around you and your insatiable gear-whoring addictions, you're not the only ones that play this game.
