How would the community feel about Gifting or Trading to their in game friends?

I would like to add a rule to this, that if Kabam adds this, people cannot trade with people they JUST friended, maybe after like a day?

    I was actually a yes vote, because I feel it has to be a thing, so don't harass me just because I voted on my own poll, thank you. First time I'll say this: EDIT: I didn't think it told me what I voted. Also, I don't like it when people say "EDIT:" I only said it because I didn't know any other ways to say it.

    Agreed.

    And regardless of how many safeguards were put in place, gifting would be abused to oblivion. In a game breaking sort of way. This game cannot survive the chaos and downright cheating that would ensue.

    Too easy to exploit, happened on contest of champions and it got taken away because it was abused off.

    Make it stop.

    Please.

    I vote instant ban for anyone suggesting trading ever again

    The player hierarchy is already lopsided as hell as it is.

    Maybe if...

    1) ...it's more like selling. The person receiving the items have to buy them with a fixed amount of energon set by Kabam. For example, to buy a t3c is 100 energon, a t4b is 150 energon, t3 AM squad revive kit is 50 energon, and so on. People could still have alt accounts, but it will at least cost the primary account energon.

    2) ...if the items being gifted are only items that can be purchased with real money is a store separate from the standard one. It could be a separate tab at the top and include AM kits, batteries, rotating class sparks, basic sparks, etc. This probably will remove the use of alt accounts for farming since if they're spending real money anyway, may as well do it from the primary.

    150 for a t4b? That's insane. Waaaaay too cheap! Look at the price of the various spark deals when Kabam has them. There's no comparison.

    This discussion is irrelevant and a waste of bandwidth. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the mods have stated in the past that a trading/gifting system will never come to this game.

    I'm just throwing out random numbers so it could be higher. But I don't think it should be something too high or else people selling would be getting too much energon (I mean, they're still losing a resource too). I'm just thinking of ways this could be done without making it a free for all.

    I appreciate the thought. But.... It's going to be a free-for-all, regardless of what safeguards we think we could come up with. There are too many clever cheaters out there who can game the system. It's a downright bad idea.

    And I seem to have misunderstood your earlier statement. I assumed that when you meant Energon for the resource, you meant that they had to pay that Energon for the privilege of trading/gifting -- and that no one would be receiving it.

    Sorry, but this whole concept not only opens up the game to massive cheating, but also shoots Kabam point-blank by taking another chunk of their profits away.

    Ahh, that probably would be better for Kabam if something ever like this was implemented. But then there’d be no motivation for the seller.

    Cheating is happening even without gifting/trading/selling. However, there are still probably a bunch of honest players who could benefit from something.

    I guess if they limit it to real money items, then at least Kabam can get something out of this (hacked or stolen credit cards notwithstanding).

    I’m not for or against this either way so none of it really matters to me. Just tossing out ideas.

    If it's like equivalent exchange like say, ore for ore and sparks for sparks of the same tier then yeah, I certainly wouldn't mind having more of a specific way of getting sparks that I want than through the RNG of crystals

    Maybe. If they make it like Clash Royale, such as only gifting or trading one bot per one or two days. That may balance things out.

    Still a firm No
  • Yes!
    Never saw these posts, but then again, I barely look here, so, now that I see why people say no, I have to agree, but thats why I think people should be on each others friend lists, for at least, 3 days-ish which is why I made this post, tbh
  • Yes!
    I would like trading, that would be really cool especially if you could trade bots.

    Why for the love of Cybertron is this thread resurrected??
