Because they want you to hunt down your gear without relying too much on others? Another reason? If these aren't logical, how would you tackle it?

Ok I'll give it go....
J...you know I have been around for some time now and have seen all aspects of the game with points of view and experience of all 5 classes.
ROS is the same D3 game with a different bow on its head.
We have one additional ACT to complete (Story line ends there), one more character to run, level our toons to 70 and unlimited paragons and look for gear to clear game.
Diablo games are and were designed to have us grind endlessly with the hopes and dreams of better gear, so we can clear the game content more efficiently.
Kill monsters to get loot right?
Once game is cleared efficiently on lower Torment levels...then what?..
Ok so then we move on to Torment 6...we're feeling brave, feeling like we can take on the world, played 400 ish hrs, picked up some pretty epic gear.....cleared Torment 6...then what?
Oh wait.... we have bounties and Rifts to run.... we'll those have been done already to get the epic gear needed to clear Torment 6.
So now I have run all content of the game, beat the game in Torment 6, did many Rift and Bounty runs whats next?...look for better gear?
Oh im sure I can squeeze some better gear here and there, "let's grind some more, I'm on a mission for better gear".
now ... we are back right where we left off in D3 are'nt we?
Like I said its the same pig with a new bow on its head.
Though the new legs look neat and amazing, what is the end game?
TBH, I dont know what Blizz's thinking on BOA gear, please enlighten me if you know.
I don't want to throw out assumptions on this matter, so if you know something here please let me know.
God knows I'm a huge Diablo fan , dig Blizz and their games.
My point to this thread is, unless the game is updated frequently, new challenges, new Bosses, new features, new characters, new maps, new monsters, the game will stall for players after about 400 hrs of play.BTW...when you say this? Keep up the discussions. I can attest that the developers do take to heart suggestions and feedback, I know it firsthand.
I fear that the WD community is overlooked for some reason, weve asked for MVP's...ignored
If you compare the Blues responses in other forums WD get the least looks, why? IDK
This thread is not for them to notice as much it is to voice my observations and or concerns to my friends here.
I have been a huge supporter of the WD community, love these guys.
They might think I've gone nuts, but I cant stay silent anymore.
