06/27/2013 01:21 AMWoW stats showed that something like less than 10% of accounts hit max level and even a large chunk of those didnt ever partake in end game PVE or PVP yet those areas received most of the attention of the balance and development.

First of all , wow and sc2 are totally different games, totally different concepts .. comparing them is ... stupid. (and yes I know parts of hots looked sooo much like WoW ... )
The thing is , people buy sc2 for two reasons .... Campaign (the epic singleplayer gameplay , the story , the spirit of the game) and the Multiplayer ... only two reasons to buy starcraft 2.
While the people that buy wow time have a billion reasons to keep buying: PvP (Arenas , bgs , duels , open world pvp , capital city raids) Pve (raids , dungeons , quests) , story & spirit , achievements , mounts , pets , gear , transmogs , titles , the endless flow of expansions and patches(new stuff ,new stuff everywhere !!! wow my stuff now deals 100% more damage , wow , now I know what I'll be doing this week !!!!) [...] and ... the most important ... social life
So yeah ... All we can do is question Blizzard's reasons ,but not the facts.
