Name one game that is a sucess that waited months (and more likely years) to come out with a balance patch. For bonus points the patch actually had to work as intended.

Either or your point isn't backed up by much. WoWs early game is horrendous yet somehow there are enough people in that game to form a medium country.

Oh look at that they're obsessed with the endgame.

I honestly cannot think of a single game that was hampered into failure because the early game pvp wasn't balanced. Or even because the early game pve wasn't that fun. I can think of several that died because of the lack of end game things.
