I'm thinking through an idea for my next post, which which will be relatively complex. But I want to make sure that I am not missing a possibility somewhere, so I'm asking for feedback on a couple of underlying assumptions.
Assumption 1: 25-man raiders are a small minority of the playerbase.
Assumption 2: A disproportionate amount of development time is spent creating content for them.
Can anyone refute these assumptions?
Also, assuming 1 and 2 are correct, why is it worthwhile for Blizzard to create content usable only by such a small portion of the player base?
I have my own ideas about that, and I've written about them before, but I'd like to see if anyone has any other reasons that I may not have considered.
Edit: For reference, here is the last article I wrote on the subject.
