I recently (purposefully) put on the market 50 something Lobo and 50 something Chwing for EXACTLY 51 clintz, one after the other.
I did this until I had 100 individual players, who bought the cards.
I then sent each player a PM which included the following:
'oops.... Give back? Yes or No?'
For those that replied with No or did not reply at all, or gave some excuse, they kept the card.
For those that replied with Yes and/or sent back the card, I awarded them with a Cr atleast 20x the value.
Most of you will call me crazy for doing this, but I was very interested to know the answer.
So.... how many players out of 100 do YOU reckon gave back the card?
Winner who guesses the correct number wins a Smokey Cr.
If multiple players guess the same number, I'll draw a lottery for the winner.
Closes later today.
Best of luck
@ all:yes this is over

Hello guys and gals,
Thanks for all your guesses and support, I just WISH I had a better result for you. As you'll soon read, the survey did NOT go quite to plan, infact thats an understatement.
Upon giving either Lobo OR Chwing for 51 clintz to 100 individual players and sending out that same message. I recieved the following result:
Out of the 100 players that this survey was conducted on, 0 (zero) players decided to give back the card for the original price, or indeed at ALL.
The BEST deal I was offered as 'compensation' was 2x Vryer to replace my loss of a Chwing. Yes, that was the BEST and actually ONLY offer. Everyone else either said No, didn't reply, or made some kind of excuse i.e 'I already sold the card'.
This was not what I was hoping for, and in my opinion, an inaccurate conclusion to the survey. Because I DO actually think that there ARE some players out there that would return the card if asked politely. I know I'M one of them.
Although the survey shows that 0% of UR players would give back the card, I believe this to be inaccurate. Making an educated guess, I'd say that 1-3% of UR players would return the card for the same price if asked to do so.
What we can conclude from this survey IS, that in most cases, an UR player would NEVER return the card he bought cheap, even if asked to do so. If it ever does happen, its by a really nice player,........."
Here is my proof btw (read comment 37 if you dont know what im talking about)
so if this happened to you, would you return it?
Wow great idea! I'm actually shocked at the results, i would have expected at least 25%... but as it's been said; there are people who religiously hunt the marketplace for cheap deals. I'm glad I wasn't one of your guinea pigs C0L0SSAL because i'm lucky if I get on UR once a day... so I might of missed the message by a day or so. I know for a fact I would have returned it without hesitation and I know there are many people in the crowd who also would. It just makes you sad realizing that no one returned it. If maybe a couple had.. it may have returned a glint of hope of the goodness in humanity. But hey, while good acts are a rarity it makes them all the more enjoyable when they occur.
Oh and C0L0SSAL; you truly are an inspiration, one might say somewhat of a modern Robin Hood
This just proves there should be a support system that forbids or at least asks you if you really want to sell that card so low. A few months back i wasn't able to sell my Timber pfulls because i wanted more than 5 times of what timber normally sells at. If they can do that, why not protect players, rather than hinder them in market activites. I just sold my oxp vermyn n for 2.5k because my computer froze.. so annoying.
