Gearbox Studios isn't opposed to changing the way people exchange loot in the fascinating RPS, Borderlands. The catch is that the crew behind the game will move in whatever direction the community wants to in the future -- not now.
"We were pretty careful there," Gearbox's Mikey Neumann said in a recent interview when asked if trade in the game would be expanded. "We wanted free-for-all looting for now. Then we'll look at what the community really latches on to or wants, and we'll move in that direction."
Neumann hasn't encountered a problem with loot-whoring like some complaining about the free-for-all, simply-drop system have been. If there's a dispute, Neumann says he settles it via duels with a hearty helping of the honor system afterward.
