This isn't a problem of the devs missing the forest for the trees. If anyone has a perspective issue, it's the whiners.

Why can't we have new content with nothing being taken away? Because it doesn't work that way! They can't just give everyone everything.

What you're not realizing here is that if they didn't "take away" something that you wanted to keep, something else would probably have to go. Why? Because, in all likelihood, there would have been problems with the economy.

Just as likely, there are business reasons for the decision, so not "taking away" the thing you wanted to keep would have "taken away" something from them (i.e. the opportunity to increase revenue). Call that greed if you like, time will tell whether it was the right decision to make.

There's no such thing as a free lunch, but that's what a lot of the whiners have been asking for.
