Alpha player here, starting with human push.There were a number of problems with Ironforge 1.0, leading to lots of complaints on the alpha boards:1) The elevator down to Tinker Town (where the tram tracks were) was horribly bugged and most of the time when you went down there, you'd fall through and die.2) There was a TON of wasted space. Lots of empty areas that had nothing in them. Imagine if the Stormwind Canals had nothing in them.3) They apparently decided to not do whatever instances were going to be down in Old Ironforge, more's the pity.The revamp actually occurred pretty early on. As I recall, we only had the first Ironforge for the dwarf push (the second push of alpha) and by the time we got back there with the night elf push, it was redone.

They could've fixed the buggy elevator and "wasted" space is a good thing IMO... The current old world cities do have some residential looking stuff but still not enough to make it look like a real city where people actually live and this only got worse with Shattrath and now Dalaran has no living quarters at all except maybe the inns... Where the hell do all those shop keepers sleep and eat? I love the random buildings with nothing but beds and tables and food and different objects in them because it give the impression that someone actually takes residence in the city and its not just a glorified strip mall...
