Ive finished Xcom 2 several times, the war of the chosen expansion is buttclenchingly difficult though..
Its much more of an arms race as opposed to the first game..

I recently started this after finishing Xcom EW. Does anyone else think that this game is hard as b***s? Even flanking the enemy gives around 60% chance to hit. My soldiers drop like flies, most of my experienced soldiers are dead and mostly rookies are remaining.

I feel like I am either doing something wrong or the RNG gods are really angry at me for some reason.

I am playing on normal difficulty.
If you like ultra slow-paced gameplay videos and have the patience/time for it, I'd recommend watching Zemalf - one of my favorite youtubers!
I loved his EW playthrough which was a perfect run in Impossible Iron Man difficulty with zero deaths/nation loss. I learnt a great deal of strategy from his videos and totally love his careful calculated move every single time. He was MIA for couple of years but now he is back again doing a X2 WOTC run in Legend Ironman mode. I don't know how well this one is going so far but it has been on my watch list for a while. Check the initial few videos and maybe it may give you pointers as to where you are going wrong.

What is the difference between vanilla Xcom 2 and WOTC? Do they have overlapping campaigns like EW or is it a completely different campaign?

WOTC has overlapping campaign. It is an expansion as large as the original game with several new features/classes added.

So should I play WOTC as my first play through or should I play vanilla first? I am currently playing vanilla.

WOTC changes a lot of things from vanilla, because the chosen fill the same role as the alien hunters, but much much more difficult. Vanilla has different soundtracks as well.
Play vanilla and play chosen afterwards.
