Default Why do old maps disappear?

Hello!
Just out of curiosity: is it really necessary to remove older maps from the game?
For example I would love to play Quinling again.. I know its on the classic maps pack but no halfway populated server ever plays these.
Why can't you just leave the old maps in the game when you do updates? (honest question)

cya,

They increase final download size considerably, maybe in future when faster broadband is accessible they will be included, untill then there are still organized events hosted by clans that feature older maps.

Its also due to quality of overall experience. Qinling wasn't favored even by its maker, iirc it was because of steep hills.

-We have plenty good replacements to fase out old maps so that new maps have more chances of being played.
-Most cases maps are actually removed when the creator of said map is displeased with it and doesn't want it to be played anymore (until fixed ).
-Heavy increase is game size.
-Upkeeping all these maps with fixes and changes every release is a lot of work.

Also getting rid of Shikotan Island was a mistake. It was clearly the superior map to Saaremaa.

Shikotan's creator did not like the map and that's the end of it.
