Based on those general numbers you would think that they would spend a lot more time on PVP balance.

I got Dragon Roar'd by a Warrior in Ashran and it knocked me through the floor then made me DC for 10 minutes.

I didn't submit a bug though, with the state of Warriors throughout MoP it wouldn't surprise me if it was intended.

Well, if every single arena game counts as 1 pvp instance.

I don't think anyone does close to 50 instances per day, like someone could do 50+ arena games.
and bots doing tons of bgs 24/7

They should normalize these numbers based on amount of people actually playing each event.  A tennis match takes two people and a basketball game takes 10 people.


Some quick BS numbers I pulled out of my ass to make a point:

Assuming the average amount of people in a PVE encounter is 7 (3 least possible in a heroic scenario, 5 dungeon, etc).  My guess is majority of these actions are scenarios and 5 man dungeons.

900k*7 = 6.3 mil

Assuming average amount of people in a PVP encounter is 5 (mix of 2s, 3s, some BGs).

670k*5 = 3.35 mil

Pet battles is mainly a 1vs1 activity due to all the dailies & pet leveling.  Making these assumptions pve and pvp still come out more popular than pet battles but not by much.

At least it puts to rest the "pvp is only 10 percent of wow" bullshit. Was tired of hearing that.
