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

Id like to see all the negative respondents as well perhaps give them -1 pts just to see
cool experiment i like the initiative and generosity of not only canceling the private sales sent but giving away those cards and having the ones who offered you free cards a better chance at getting the free cards very nice!
Maybe a year a go a player asked me to sell him some card for maybe 10k less than market value and told me why, and I happily gave it to him because Im not that focused on clintz and cards that I cant help out someone, this guy was a noob at the time, and now a year later he came back and told me that I made a really good impression on him, he's rich as ever now and gave me 400k worth of cards, you never know how helping someone might help you in the future. Its not even about getting anything back its about helping someone out because we all were ''not as funded as others'' once upon a time and we were saving for cards and making that last 10k seemed to take forever, so yeah man I don't consider it begging, dude never asked me for anything after that one card, I felt great like I made his day lol. Im excited to see where this experiment goes!
