WoW and ‘phasing’ content

I’m suprised at the reaction in a RPG.net thread (or should I be?)

I’m surprised simply removing some models is perceived as a big deal? I’m not sure as to the exact details, but as I understand it it in no way mechanically effects gameplay for the player. It just changes what they see. So they have story right over here, and players just play their character right over there! And if you do stuff, the story advances – in a preset way, of course of course – and you see new graphics which in now way affect your gameplay.

It’s seen as a big advance? It’s nothing that hasn’t been done in single player RPG’s for years?

How come this sells, and how can I wrap my iron claws around its throat and shake some money from it?
