Just because they don't owe us transparency doesn't mean there is none. We get patch notes and ptrs well before things ever go live. When bugs crop up, we get forum posts from blizzard informing us of such. Look at the most recent hotfixes as an example. Just yesterday Bornakk posted to let people know that hotfixes went into effect to make Icehowl tauntable and to make frost patches last throughout the encounter unless destroyed using the proper encounter mechanics. Transparency is there where it matters, in the what. We know when there is a bug or when a fix is coming, because they post these for all to see. We know what content is coming up, because they post patch notes, ptrs and previews. Eve is also a much different game than WoW. In May of 2009 Eve hit 300,000 subscribers. WoW has over 10 million. Eve also has a much older average player age than WoW, and the content of the two is completely different.
