Blizz has taken the same stance that a lot of companies have, do only enough to keep the customer coming back, and no more. Largely, I blame the influences of Robert Kotick, who is possibly this policies biggest proponent. The low ratio of GMs to Players, the lack of new art, the utter lack of customer service, and other complaints that we the player base have filed over the years, is proof of all that. I imagine that a lot of the Blizz employees that were around before the merger are chafing under Kotick's rule. This is a man who sees us all as walking cash machines for him to take from. I'm not saying that all the problems are because of Kotick and Activision, in fact I don't know if they are because I didn't play the game pre-merger, but what I do know is that WoW demonstrates the business model that Kotick and Activision are known for.
