13 gears doesn’t bother me considering my first mountain bike had 15 gears. But you raise a good point about range. What a rider needs is useable range. Around Whistler I want a pretty low low gear but a high gear isn’t very useful. I find a 32 by Eagle is close enough for my needs. Others would want something different than me that conforms to their own strength and local terrain needs. Road riders can get all sorts of cassette ratios. Why is off road a sort of one size fits all?
