Watching the events of Halloween and several of the jump puzzles in the game seems to indicate that A-Net is focusing in the new generation of new players casting aside older players to the curb.
It is sad but after trying time after time several jumping puzzles, the one in Halloween and seeing the way that effects are manipulated and the graphics and the costumes it seems very clear that we the old generation of players are little by little put aside on the curb so the garbage truck of time will carry us away.

Quoting a player
It seems I am not the only one that feels this way
You feel like older players are being kicked to the curb because of Halloween themes? I don't get that. I guess I'd feel that way if there were references to pop culture in game (WoW had an NPC named "Haris Pilton" that sold bags and jewelry) or if they replaced the epic musical scores with dubstep.
