I really felt like the 1-60 changes were a waste of time, I have all of the alts I care to play, and suddenly to get to half the content in the expansion I had to make another. The game had been out for almost 7 years when Cata launched, so I have a hard time who they were targeting these changes towards. Wow has almost no new players, and among the new accounts churn is high by blizzards own admissions. Existing players mostly want content for their mains, as for alts, during the almost 7 years of the games life, you had the opportunity to level up any class you wished to play.The dev effort spent on those changes was immense, and it quite frankly left the rest of the expansion lacking, the leveling experience was abrupt, there weren't enough instances, and end game was thin. Add that to the frustration of spending hours a day in queue for heroics to get geared for raids, and I was ready to wash my hands of wow within a month of Cata's release. Add to that the fact that 25 man raiding is nearly dead on my server, and I'd say that quite a bit more went wrong with this expansion than went right. Don't take my word for it, the fact that wow is hemorrhaging subs attest to this expansions quality far better than I can.
