But then there is also a mail waiting from a player - seems he blundered on entering a Buy order and my Sell order picked up the 1.2bn ISK or so extra:
and the current market backs this up:
Had this blunder gone silently i would have kept the ISK (and no doubt posted it on this blog).
However, to be fair to the player - he (i assume it is a he) did get in contact, was polite and there is no harm in attempting to reverse some of the loss.
So, the state of affairs is this:
- i have a Sell order for 213m ISK
- i get 1440m ISK
- the player meant to do a Buy order for 144m ISK
- the blunder in my favour benefited me by 1227m ISK (1440 - 213)
- the blunder against the player hit him for 1296m ISK (1440 - 144)
So, i return 1.1bn ISK to the player and keep the other 100 - 200m ISK for myself to cover sundries like the sales tax (13m ISK) and a slap up meal at Miss Miggins Pie Shop (thats is a Blackadder reference).
