You misunderstand.

I am attempting to refute the idea that free players are a big cost to Bioware.

They're cheap to maintain. Like, really cheap.

The percentage of them that need to buy stuff for Bioware to make money is hilariously low. The biggest bandwidth expense they'll incur is probably downloading the client: this would cost the bargain price of 13.39 cents per full download if I, a private citizen who will almost certainly pay many times more for bandwidth than a large corporation, hosted the client downloads myself.
