If you paywall content, most of your players will never see that content. Cryptic prefers to have EVERYBODY see the content, and let the content drive sales of other items. Otherwise, they'd be spending the majority of their effort on things that most people would never see.
DDO isn't any more successful than STO. Both strategies are good strategies; Cryptic's means more people get to play all the content.
