Question for you: Do you feel that Cartel Packs are a dishonest way of getting the maximum amount of Money out of players by having them gamble for items they want.

Rather than go into the cartel maket and spend a set pre-determined amount of money on an outfit or speeder or pet or whatever you decide to put the most sort after items such as the revan mask or other outfits/pets/emotes in the Cartel pack. Hoping to take advantage of incredibly bad odds that they will try again and again and again like any gambling addict to finally get that item or even just come away good on their loss. After all you would never be able to sell a pack of 10 worthless crafting components, a purple companion item, a banner and credit box or whatever else junk that clogs the GTN. The vast majority of these boxes are junk and not worth the money spent on them. Instead the chance to get a rare item is what is really being sold. And in no way an up front and honest of providing value for money. Even Casinos have to tell you what the odds of winning are.
