The Night Elves were already described as these ancient, powerful and immortal beings. They could not remain that way, I think, and be on even ground with the rest of the races in WoW. All races were, I believe, meant to feel... Stranded, shattered and recovering from the recent devestations of Warcraft 3.
I'm not sure that's a very fair assessment when we have Forsaken freely being a powerful race that uses WMD's at a given opportunity.

Do note that I highlighted the recent developements with the Forsaken, coupled with looking at it from an Vanilla World of Warcraft pov, before the Goblins, Worgen, Sin'dorei and Draenei joined.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.
