Since the major amount of players (bout 80%) doesn't even have more than 1-5 op's, I doubt that. I lost 772 op's, yet I'm waiting for the issue to be fixed and I'm not raging. Your actions are of no effect.
I quote you: "EITHER GIVE THEM BACK WITHIN THE NEXT 2 DAYS OR YOU WILL SEE MANY PLAYERS QUITTING."
So, are you a psychic, a shrink or will you make them quit? Gaming is an addiction, there will be leavers but as shark said, many people will stay and many people will restock their AP.
AND new players will get addicted and buy AP also and an error will happen again in the future and this story will start all over again.
Why? Errors happen.
