BioWare announced that with 4.0 players visiting lower level planets will be 'de-bolstered' (i.e. have their stats lowered) to be appropriate for that planet. They are not the first game to do this, Guild Wars 2 make a lot of use of it. As expected, it is causing quite a stir in the community. It has all the normal MMO hyperbole, ranging from "It will kill the game!" to "It is the greatest thing ever!" Also many claims of quitting. You know, normal MMO reactions.
New World and new hopes
