Of course Blizzard has chosen to use some maintenance money to improve their product with features that most of us don't use. The prime example that comes to mind is in-game voice chat, which is 'value added' for Blizzard (since they can port such capabilities to future games), but seems a waste of money for most customers who still use other products such as Ventrilo. Whether that money might have been spent on additional personnel to develop new quests, as opposed to, say, higher stock dividends, is an open question.And to throw more fat on the fire, people have screamed for 'new lower-level content' for as long as I have followed WoW blogs and forums. But adding, for example, a bunch of new Duskwallow Marsh quests really completed the zone, but seem to add less value to the game than endgame content, particularly when they add a class that starts at a higher level than those quests.Bottom line: Blizzard seems to be doing ok running their WoW business. My only 'complaint' would be that they failed to deliver on the 'one expansion a year' promise - but as it turns out, I can't keep up with the pace of new content anyway, so it matters not to me.
