Bioware intentionally raised the cost of armour repairs, as their first attempt, to increase money sinks within the game.
Now that the players have less credits in their galactic wallets. They are unable to purchase valuable Cartel Market items from the GTN. Thus forcing them to buy Cartel Coins and buy their own packs!
EA is perfectly fine with person A buying the pack for real money and posting it to the GTN so person B will buy it with credits. Person A wasn't buying it to open it, he was buying it to get the credits. If he can't get credits for the pack any more, Person A won't buy the pack for RMT either. Person B might... or might not. There's a guarantee of no ADDITIONAL sales and a risk of FEWER sales. Bad theory.
