Couldn't agree more! The only real action that Molten Core is getting is people running through it in a group of 4-5 level 85 characters to get the raid completion achievement or to twink lower level characters with the epic boss dropped loot (which gets replaced by better uncommon loot a few levels later anyway...).
I'm sure they will overhaul MC...who knows when.
They DID start updating Outland little by little. If you look at the elite hulking Reavers roaming Hellfire Peninsula - they've received new textures, albeit no new model. They look much better than they originally did. Outland is now, after all, the oldest part of WoW.
That's so nice that blizzard are into recycling. Why make something new when you can just re-use it?
Good on you blizzard
Games that we call and categorise as MMORPGs have a set of general features that place them within that category. Probably the most prominent of features of any MMORPG is the idea and implementation of a "persistent world". The player's characters "live" in this world, sometimes are able to alter it, and often see it alter around them.
It should be no surprise that a company, any company that works in the MMORPG field would revisit "old content" and upgrade it/change it/redo it so on and so forth. The world changes around us in RL. Does a house need to be demolished every time it becomes "old" in someone's eye, or would re-decoration and restoration give an equally satisfying result?
Are you dissatisfied that Blizzard decided to re-do the level 1-60 content instead of putting out yet another new isolated continent for levels 80-85 - leaving the earlier material to age and sit in its outdated state of game play? (long sentence is long)
I believe that Blizzard had a great idea, put good effort and did a fantastic job in revisiting Azeroth by breathing in a new and continued narrative.
A lot of people today complain that developers don't deliver enough support and continued development to non-MMO games...yet when this content is delivered to them, they complain that it should be "free".
You just can't please some people.
