Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
See how dumb that model is?
Locks and Discs have had a lot of good seasons, mage has had quite a few.
Rdruid had quite a few as well, though the entirety of Cata was terribad.

Cant for for the op to reroll mage and to get nerfed to death in 5.4.
Mage and lock for dps. Druid and shammy for healers (disc having all but 1-2 comps for multiple seasons doesn't exactly make them amazing).
mage, priest (shadow or disc), shaman (resto), rogue
Warlock overall with many very strong seasons. Mages second but with mostly mediocre seasons. Priest and rogue third.
Lock hands down they've also had the most amount of viable comps. Lock + Flavour of the month + Healer has generally always been a god mode comp.
Warlock then priest or mage.
You're right except for 2 things.
1. My name is spelt "God" not "Loucious-sama".
2. I'm not a man, because man is inherently flawed. I am in fact a being so far beyond your comprehension that archaic constraints like flesh, blood, time and consequently, gender, have no meaning to me.
Mages have been consistently viable/good. They've never truly had something like s9 for warlocks or s9/s12 for disc or most of Tbc as spriest.
Warlock and Priest balance have been more volatile, but both classes have on average been by far the best representated out of all classes, even despite the fact that the warlock class have consistently been the least or second least played class.
http://www.arenajunkies.com/topic/12...ation-numbers/ - ( the one and only time Blizzard ever have posted their internal data) , is probably the only numbers available from Vanilla to Wrath.
http://www.arenastats.com/ stopped tracking data late cata. Iirc, Warlocks, Rogues and Shamans in general had a great run in Cataclysm.
http://www.crossladder.com/arena/stats/ This is current data extracted from Blizzards own ladder and updated daily.
To be honest - its difficult to find a single dominating class.
