So ehm, while we're on the forums (I see you gm's), we might as well hold a poll about the trading system.

You can P2P pearl items. It's called the gifting option in the pearl store (must have 1 level 56 character.).

I think what you wrote is not what you meant.

Aside from RMT, thats also going to be the biggest, massive problem.

No, no, a thousand times no.

Gear progression in this game is such that if you allowed any meaningful player to player trades it would ruin the game unless gear became bound, which would suck for other reasons. A centralised market means they can keep gear unbound whilst stopping people committing the many and various abuses that trading would enable, such as RMT, passing all their gear to a new account when they thought they might get banned, etc.

Perhaps maybe just inner guild trading of some sort. Have maybe a week buffer after you join before you can start trading, and a week penalty after for leaving.

any hopes of P2P in BDO is dead. I suggest just ignoring that fact, and just wait for the true openworld sandbox mmos thats coming out later this year. And hope these peasants never leave this community so we who want to enjoy being able to give stuff to the person next to us can enjoy it. 


Its still a funny scenario even after a year... I wanna give some soda to the person next to me but apparently I have to post it on Ebay for that person to BUY what I wanna GIVE to that person for FREE lol.

Yes, but only if you have been in a guild for 90+ days otherwise GTFO. And activity level of 250k+

Hey guys, remember in the 90s when they thought of this cool new concept of players trading with other players?

 

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Like I said to limit abuse you tie it to guildies only, put time limit on guild, only after 90 days ( maybe 60 days with guild ) and a contribution(activity) or like 100k+(you actually got off ass and did guild missions), you want help with free gear then your ass invests into the community and help build a guild up.

they think disabling trading will stop RMT.. oh how naive of them..

it still happens all the time, everyday.. Accounts being sold, Power-leveing, 24/7 account sharing getting gold farmers playing for you.. etc.

the real problem is companies are too lazy to spend the time and money on actively dealing with RMT traders. 

the truth is and always will be that there is no way to truly stop RMT... people make a living off of this, its a damn business.

so should the community get this sort of collective punishment for something the companies cannot deal with?

 

on another note, they already have "Bind on character" and "Bind on account" items.. why can't they just add this bind to valuable items like boss armors or accessories? 

why not just simply disbale "silver/gold" as something that cannot be traded? Instead, they disable everything.. you can't even trade a single damn log...

the steps above are what MMOs do now a days.. I don't think disable trading entirely is the right step and it's shady as hell too.. 

greed breeds misdeed..

NO trading pearl shop items.

Gifting of pearl shop items needs to stop.

They should fix prices on things like horses instead of having players trading/gifting pearls for it.

Make up the difference in money gained by opening up sales of ALL pearl shop items on the marketplace.

to be honest i was riding the "because of RMTs" horse but at this point.... does it really matter. if you look at any other MMO they have normal trading and a normal AH, but it struggles here because the focus on trying to eliminate a problem that they cant.

Voted yes to the general idea of player to player trading, but my personal ideas revolve around small amounts of trade mainly focused on raw material and food/potions, not on big ticket items like end game gear as most anti traders always seem to focus on.

tbh whats the point in blocking that stuff? open the gates and let them trade for the things they want. since here there is no bind equip/pick up it makes no sense not to be allowed to trade anything. the way i see it is you allow trading of anything, in turn this will free up the choke hold on the marketplace. as time goes on people will use both as bots/rmts cant usually control both. even if they want they could keep the limit on silver on how much an item can be traded for so it can get crazy with people trading a potion for 90 billion silver.

Making it "guildies only" isn't a solution and can in fact be another issue itself

RMT isn't really a concern, supply can't keep up with demand as it is now.
