Content C
Content D

Content D workers instead work on Content E, which you are then charged for.

So, at the end of the day, you paid for

A,B,C, and D

But only got A,B,&C and are told to pay extra for Content E


You paid for A,B,C,D and so they divert some of the workers to Content E

And A,B,C,D drop in quality
How do you know that the people doing stuff in the C-store are the same people doing the other stuff for game. The people working to create C-store item could be freelance artist or they could be working for Cryptic but doing these during their off-hour hence the later part if they did not work during their off-hour...
