Taken from the QandA this morning.

"To achieve the full breadth of new features and systems in War of the Chosen, the team rebuilt large portions of the original game. As a result, any optimizations players experience in War of the Chosen are part of the new game code, and are not present in the base game."

Wow. So f*** everyone who paid full price for the broken mess that was XCOM 2 on launch I guess, and it still runs pretty bad. What a joke.
Everyone wants to know the truth, until they find it.

Whine more. I'm sure the XCom devs visit this bastion of all that is good and great in the gaming world constantly to get the incredible feedback you can only get here.

Sounds like it isn't fixed to me and only the expac is better.
Reality is so flexible these days, its hard to tell whos disconnected from it and who isnt. You might even say its a pointless distinction.

In this case I don't care THAT much. It had performance issues with FPS drops, but still ran well enough for me to get my full enjoyment out of the game. I'm not going to rile myself up over the game publisher being cheap.

I have to question what was so busted that it needed to be expansion-only, but hey, it's not like I wasn't going to buy the expansion anyway.

Do hope LW2 updates to be compatible but if it doesn't, ehhh.

I think that the rebuilt portions were only made to work with the expansion content therefore the performance benefits only apply to the expansion.

Yup. Next step is for them to drop releasing patches altogether and just improve the base game solely through expansions, ala Sims.

"Wah wah, I have to buy dlc now."
Actually, no you don't. You don't have to buy anything. You can uninstall the base game and go back to playing something else.
Xcom 2 runs fine on my pc. Maybe try to upgrading your potato pc?
