Recently, my internet was really slow so I can't play UR properly. So, I decided to conduct a social experiment.
The aim is to have a conclusion on how many market investors would react if a newbie PM'ed them asking for cards. I recently PM'ed people who sell bulk cards in the market, and trying to "beg" a copy from them. I don't really need the card, I just wanted their feedback. Most of the feedbacks were negative, flaming and cursing me like hell. Some even blacklisted me, which is a funny thing lol. Luckily, some were really generous enough that put cards in my private sales that worth even up to 200k/card (you know yourselves, thank you), but I cancelled those private sales to me because I was just aiming for their feedback.
I will still keep PM-ing people to "give me some cards", and after gathering the results that I wanted, I will immediately cease the study.
After that, I will be conducting a lottery for the cards that "I begged" (I'm making sure that I have copies of the cards that I beg), and I will be mentioning the result of the experiment.
I will post the event link after my experiment is over

Haha sorry ) i still did not manage to compile all the PM responses, cause I'm too busy. Never expected that our university thesis would be this hard, computing financial ratios for top 100 companies in japan lol. don't worry after our defense i will immediately compile all results and get correls and variance and such. and lotto for sure
Cool experiment. I especially like the fact that you're making an event for all the people that helped you with it. Kind gesture.
Good luck with reviewing for the CFA, and I'm interested to see the result of this. Take your time though.
Thanks, but I doubt I can make it right away. I have tons of data that I need to rearrange first, and put a narrative on each of them. It will take me time to finish them, coupled by the hardships I'm currently undertaking in our university. But I'll try to finish them ASAP before the lotto ends.
By the way, I find it sad for some people who blocked me. I'm inviting the respondents to join to my event through private messages and sadly I can't PM them. Oh well, that's okay. That means more prizes for other respondents who already joined this event
That stinks. It would have been wonderful if all your respondents got to join.
I understand if it takes a while for you to make it, you must have gotten a ton of input.
And I noticed that I'm on the Freeloaders group, which is very well-deserved
I remember my one friend gave a noob in my guild over 100k of nightmare cards for no reason other than to get him started. I'm glad there are other people that actually tried to give you cards. I know I probably wouldn't have given you anything, but not cussed you out. Good luck with the results, and I hope I win something, Freeloaders ftw
