Eve is a completely different type of mmo aimed at a different demographic so they can pretty much do with they like with it and people will stick with it. WildStar on the other hand is another theme-park mmo aimed at the WoW demographic but with less content & systems, but better combat and housing. They can't just expect people to stick around and stay subbed as they build up the game while other theme-park mmos are releasing massive content patches/expansions and whatnot. Especially not when they're asking players for the same price each month as the other big mmo but only giving them a third of the game. Square Enix are smart though, they know that their game isn't as big as WoW so they don't charge players as much to play, additionally the amount of content they release every three months is staggering so the sub is truly worth the money.
You know, I play this game most evenings and there are still areas in this game I've hardly touched. My raid group is 2/6 in GA, so we have a TON to look forward to in our future. I've actually been happy with it the whole time, but it keeps getting better and better, and they keep adding stuff for me to do.
Maybe the issue is that I haven't played WoW since WotLK, but the content available to me now in this game feels like what was available to me then, and really I just don't have time for more. I barely even touched the Defile zone and haven't done squat with housing.
And I don't think I'm alone in feeling satisfied by this game. I've been watching my wife level and alt, and she met some folks while questing who invited her to their guild. Appears to be a bunch of levelers playing the game casually, and they are running a bunch of shiphands and stuff together. They are playing a totally different segment of the game than where I focus, and they seem to be having a blast. So there isn't just a lot of content for what *I* like to do, but for many others as well.
