By staggering the release, they can judge how well the subscriptions do in November and then decide how much effort they want to put forth in April. If the expansion sells well, more effort for April. If sales are lackluster, they can cut and paste some crap in April, call it good, and go drink a beer.
Wow.. thanks for marginalizing the passion we (developers) have for the game we work on. I guess we work the crazy overtime we do just to 'cut and paste some crap'. The level of effort WE (devs) put into the game has absolutely nothing to do with sales/subscription numbers. It has to do with all of us wanting to put out the best game we can.
