Idea: Trading function!

So, here is my idea.

 

I'm not sure how many players love getting mystery chests, either farm items or dragon eggs, and then they end up having something they already have. Maybe they don't want a 5th helmet plant or a 3rd whispering death dragon. So!

 

There could be a menu where User 1 can select what kind of dragon egg he/she wants, and if User 2 has that one to trade, they could request a trade and then User 1 could accept the trade (which would be done automatically to avoid any problems).

 

By problems I mean it definitely should NOT be up to the players whether they want to send the accepted traded stuff or not (so scamming and stealing would not be possible).

 

I would love to trade either farm items, or even a few dragon eggs! :)

 

And there could be some filters where you can mark what you offer to trade, and then a searching tool would give you matching traders who marked those items as "wanted". If there is a match, then yay, you two can trade! If there is no match, then there would be a "browse" option, so that you can see what you might need to trade if you want a specific item.

 

Possible benefits from this:

- more life within the game -> let's see who has something nice to trade today!

- encouraging mystery package lovers -> if you can trade it, you can choose more chests!

 

A selling function would be nice too, you could set a (reasonable) price for your items and instead of a Trading request you would get a Buying request.

 

What do you think? Do you have anything you would like to sell or trade?

It sounds like pokemon GTS trading a bit! That could work well!

i have a zippleback egg that i dont want, and i wouldnt mind just selling it or trading it for half the gems it costs.

Thanks for the reply! :)

Hi! I knew there were others who would like to trade! Yay!

 

I have a Whispering Death egg I would offer to trade. (And maybe a Gronckle egg or a Monstrous Nightmare egg, depending on what I could trade them for.)

 

The trading place would be a nice addition to the game.

whats to pervent someone from

whats to pervent someone from tricking kids like

ohhh give me that screaming deaht and i will give you a nightfury egg the game owner gave me its one of akind far more valuebule then the screaming death

 

it looks like a sandwraith egg to me 

 

thts jsu the game bing silly trust me its s  nightfury

que angry parents and crying kids swindled out of their eggs  

 

 

and whats to pervent hackers from giveing you hacked eggs in exchang for legit ones?

 

and this has been subjested a ton of times but i just cant see it working out to many glitches and stuff to actualy work out 

and while YOU are nice you never know who will swindle you and while we might be odl enough to know better little kids dont and they are the target audeince like it or not this is a game designed for first graders and adults are welcome to join in if they respect the rules 

but in a family game you always have to think of the youngest first

 Pretty much, I think you should be able to trade only if you have a trading license. To get a trading license, you must pass the test. You have to get 100% on the test and if you fail it you can try again in 50 hours (2 days). There would be reporting for scammers, and scammers should lose their privilege for trading for amount of time if they were found scamming. If they keep scamming too much and get caught they will get banned from trading forever. Anyone like that idea? (BlockEdragon I think that is what you meant..)

but we onyl have one person

but we onyl have one person doing customer service and i havent seen him actualy help anybody i have messaged him sevral times and he is still ignoreing me

hackers dont get banned so whats to stop them?

they arent gonna hire people for that 

 

whats to stop someone from cheating and looking up the awnsers?

i dont see this working plus the game would lose money because then you woudnt have to buy the egg jsutt trade the one you got for free 

 

 

 

we have to be realistic its like dragon breeding it dosent belong in a game ment for such a young audeince  

plus what benafit do they get from it?

putting time and money into  new system so you dont have to spend money on the egg you wanted

the eggs are only worht what the thing they came from was so if they where going to spend 10 dllars ona stormcutter but then jsut trade all their free eggs for one the game loses moeny

If it is like pokemon GTS trading, then there is no real interaction.

In GTS, pokemon can be deposited and asked for one specific pokemon in return. Others have to search for the pokemon that what deposited and be willing to give up the pokemon that is being asked.

 

You would need the egg of the dragon to put "deposit" and ask for a specific one in return.  If the other person doesnt have the dragon egg you are asking for, they dont get it. No ability to swindle, just flat out "I have this, I want that. You have that, You want this." This would prevent the swindling thing because there cant be Timberjack, Night fury, Bewilderbeast, Etc. eggs in the trading, only the ones that are able to be purchased. 

 

As for the hacker's eggs, It would probably be very uncommon since they can just get their own dragons without much of an issue. And those dragon eggs are usually Gronckle eggs that they change the code when they hatch the dragon to the one they want. If this trading system happens, then the gronckle eggs will only be able to hatch gronckles, thus the trading should be safe(r).

 

The only downside of this type of trading system would be that many people would offer a cheap dragon and ask for stormcutters or other high price dragons. (And maybe not being able to recieve/take back your trading dragon egg with all these glitches)

Trading eggs would maybe ruin

Trading eggs would maybe ruin the game because u would have these people scamming,spamming,whining and begging in chat. Though maybe foood and farm decs

Vikings did this, ++addles

I suggest you could set it up so that the vikings could trade with each other. Called 'bartering', this would make more people happy, because they could dispose of things they got in mystery chests that they didn't want to keep. This could include dragons as well.

 

I would like to see the novice, + sleek, saddles available for ALL the dragons. In my clan I would like to be able to have everyone start out with a NOVICE saddle, then have them to get a SLEEK saddle, as their rank in my clan goes up, then to get a DEFENDER saddle. I am also hoping to see more different kinds of saddles. For instance, how about a western type saddle with gold conchos, spots, or other decorations on it. Look at Roy Rogers horse, Trigger for a model to go by. I know it SEEMS like a far fetched idea, but it is a new idea for a saddle for those of us who want something fancier.

 

How about colored saddles? Color choices with saddles like we have with the dragons. I love red, + someone else may prefer blue, or yellow, or a contrasting color to the color to their dragon.

 

Different ranks within the clans would use a saddle for that rank, as a status symbol of their rank, or position in the clan.

 

These are all possibilities, + things I would LOVE to see. It would also bring more variety.
