It would be annoying *if* there weren't other in-game activities to spend your time on in the meanwhile. I covered that in the post you quoted, but you're completely glazing over it.

You're talking about something that didn't happen at launch. Nobody reached max level in 24-48 hours when Everquest first launched. Of all advancement models to compare leveling speeds to, that's probably the last one on the list of games you should be referring to. Most modern gamers and their "gimme everything now" attitudes would probably have a breakdown trying to level today in the old original Everquest.
