Most of the mechanics in HM/Nim are already present in SM, but taken up to eleven and buffed so groups have no choice but to deal with them.

I still see people dying to being Doomed in SM TfB. Level 60 and wearing 192/198. Most pugs can clear all SM content, but HM and NiM require coordination. It's simply something that you won't see much in a group of strangers.
It's not brute the way, we study the guide and some ppl have done it, yet it's still not friendly to pugs.

I'm sorry , but i really didn't have the patience to read through the 12 pages of this thread , i only looked at what you posted initially , but if you want a reason why hard content is in a game , here it is : Some people enjoy the challenge.

It does not have to be 100% of the player base that does it , just enough people , that the developers can make a profit out of developing that content because people will keep their subscription going , just so they can play with their friends and enjoy the challenge of a coordinated fight.

It is not mandatory to complete so you are not obligated to do it if you don't feel like it . Just like a single player game has multiple difficulty modes so you can challenge your skill a MMO has different levels of difficulty for their content.

Games with a competitive aspect to them , like Starcraft , have their focus on pvp , but even a game like that , still has difficulty settings for their single player campaigns , so players can enjoy and satisfy their need for
"hardcore stuff" as you put it. And if that is not enough , then how about another example , this time of a single player game , without a competitive aspect :

Witcher 3 - i do not think i am the only one on these forums that has played that game 1 time on normal difficulty and then , just for the extra fun , did another run on Death March ( hardest difficulty if i remember correctly ), just to see if i can do it and to see how good i was at controlling the character.

Its that simple really, a game has that , so that people that want to do it , have that option , but it is not forced on anyone and doesn't take a huge amount of time to develop ( this is a presumption from my part based based on the ops that i see in this game and other MMOs as well ) , since most encounters are basically the same as the easy version , with maybe a few tweaks here and there to dmg , HP and with maybe a new added mechanic for extra difficulty.
