Destiny Update: No Player-to-Player Trading at Launch

Is player-to-player trading a big deal? Does this upset you? Will it cause you to NOT pick it up day one?

The story is too old to be commented.

It's not a dealbreaker, but it would be nice to see it.

I agree. It would be nice!

As long as I can at least drop items and trade that way then I'll be fine. If not I'll still be fine. I only deal with my brother anyways.

I find it pretty dumb that we won't be able to trade with our friends especially since classes will likely cater to certain types (hunter with magnums/snipers). Especially since there's a ton of unique guns in the game and it will definitely make it more difficult to get the one you're looking for, but this is in no way shape or form a deal breaker for me especially since they mentioned at launch you won't be able to. Here's to hoping that they do get it out eventually and not months after release.

It would give the game a better feeling and experience if it comes first but it's not a big issue.

Trading is a necessity in a game like this, so hopefully they can patch it in not too far after launch.

Trading does have its ups and downs. I understand what you mean easily, you find a cool weapon that your friend specialises with, you want to trade it with him. Just like Borderlands trading.

What I think Ittoryu is thinking, is that if someone duplicates or mods a weapon, being unable to trade won't allow this weapon to be exploited. Also similar with Borderlands modded weapons and shields.

To be honest, I'd like to try out a game which doesn't allow trading. That way, I won't have people who go "Look what weapons I found last night, an entire inventory of legendaries" when in fact, they just nabbed it off some modder/duplicator.

I think you should at least be able to trade with people who have been on your friends list for a certain period of time, say at least a month. That would prevent farming and would ensure we're only trading with real friends.

Good no currency farming, item farming and other crap that drags down an MMO.

LogicStomper1359d ago

I actually agree with this to some degree. I've played MMO's which have had rare weapons increase in value 1000-fold due to item and gold farmers. It also allows people to obtain these hard-to-get weapons with very little effort.

Yeah it would really suck if people had to actually, ya know play the game?!?!lol
