You are inferring they don't think it has changed, when they very well could have. Point out exactly where they have said "We have not changed our policy". You are INFERRING from their statements they are trying to say that.
How do I know? Because he said so, and I have basic reading comprehension skills. His phrasing is very straightforward and devoid of any words that would suggest there was any kind of policy change.

He says "what we promised was." The "promise" is what you call their policy on items going to the C-store that have in-game effects. That promise, as he outlines it, is that any item that goes into the C-store will be balanced by an equivalent or better in-game item, and thus that player will have no advantage.

He goes on to say "we have not broken that promise yet." Changing the promise (or policy) would have broken it. Since he says they have not broken it, he cannot think they have changed it (unless he is lying, which is an entirely different accusation.)

Note that he does uses the word "we" and not "I", so he is speaking on behalf of a group (i.e. Cryptic) and not just himself.

Just a friendly piece of advice, if you want to throw someone's words back at them like this, you want to be sure it will make sense. Since I did not indicate a degree of difference, this quote makes my point for me and then tells me to get over it. That does not make any sense.

A better way to attempt to use my wording would be to say, "I don't care about the difference, and you need to get over that" or "I am not going to accept anything short of a Dev response to me specifically with the specific language I require, and you need to get over that." Or at the very least, despite how childish it would look, you could've gone with "There is no difference, and you need to get over that."
