Why are there limited-time items in the crown store?

Excluding holiday-related content, why are cosmetics made limited time in the crown store? It's not like there's a limit to how many things you can have up at a given time.
Outfit Slots are outrageously expensive. No, thank you.

    To make people actually buy Crowns; if they weren't limited, people would just save up their monthly sub Crowns.

    To shove them in the crown crates later, duh.

    To build pressure on costumers to by crowns and purchase these things, so that they won't feel like they missed out on something.

    They did say several times over that there actually is a limit. Why or how high that limit is? No idea.

    Also, basic marketing strategy. Artificially limit supply to generate demand.

    Alright, sooooo, this thread was started after I had seen the crown store showcase for February. I was a bit peeved, and so I started this thread expecting a reply from one of the lads/ladettes at ZoS. I am fully aware that they exist to pressure people into spending money.

    Personally I would go a drastically different route. Something along the lines of:


    @ZOS_Wrobel only rides into battle on his White-Gold Imperial Courser.

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom says she is sad she can't have three or four Milady's White Cats with her all the time!

    @ZOS_Edward swears on Dread Anka-Ra Polymorph - "hard as dwarves, umm dwemer", he muttered to himself.
