You can try to micromonetize everything in sight if you want, but you'll destroy the game in the process. Something about geese, golden eggs, and the inability to procure an infinity of said eggs via vivisection.

Is it really a surprise that EA/Bioware would put their profits above your in game ones? Frankly, the impact to crafters was nothing compared to what they've already made and will make by doing what they did. Expect more of the same in the future, not less.
