Gratuitous Space Battles Expansion Plans

The Gratuitous Space Battles Website announces plans for an expansion that will add new campaigns to add some context and remove some of the gratuitousness in the strategy/sim/management space combat game. Word is: "The game will not care if you have any earlier DLC or not. If you do, you will face fleets built from those extra races, but if not, you just get enemy fleets built from the original 4 fleets." Here's a bit more:
The GSB campaign is a singleplayer 'conquer-the-galaxy' style game, where you build up vast space fleets and kick interstellar ass. Rather than set, pre-determined fleets to battle against, the game utilises the fleets designed by other GSB players to provide an endless variety of opponent, so you will be pitted against real carbon-based intelligence on every step of your path to galactic dominance. The GSB campaign is not a full 4X game, but a contextual 'wrapper' for GSB that introduces new strategic concerns such as crew and cash shortages, repairing ships between battles, the need for construction and repair facilities, and the ability to issue a retreat order mid-battle.

There seems to be this impression that the game did not sell. the game sells very well. Its the best selling game I've ever made, and I live from the royalties.
I think its silly that people assume that if you ask 'why did the people who didn't buy GSB, not buy it?" people assume it did not sell.
It sold fine, but I'd like it to sell better, and I'd like it to be the best game it could be.

World of Warcraft sells well, but would blizzard benefit from knowing the reasoning behind those people who have not bought WoW? Of course they would.

I have never said the game didn't sell well, i am very pleased with it's sales. Some people never get past the headline and automatically go into 'bash-developer' mode, and accuse them of 'whining' just because they ask a question of gamers.
