Suggestion: gear shard trading

Abused, how?

Wood, Gold, and Food are not being abused are they?
I would assume that shards would have the exact same coding just different values.

let me send all my shards to theses 500s to max there gear so they can be lazy like they already are

Hmm. Not sure how that is considered abused. If players decide to give up their resources to help the 500s then that is a players choice. Also I am not sure what lazy players have to do with a suggestion to the game that would benefit all players.

That’s funny, I am an over 500 player and do 40-50 invader runs a day. Also play 8-10 hours a day…but I am lazy? This isn’t about who is lazy. Its a suggestion to make the game better. To make improvements. Its why its called suggestions. I see you have 16.5M Ice shards, that’s awesome. I have 1M, why? Because is spend everything to better my gear or craft new gear. Maybe you have less Dark shards and need some to finish your mythic chest to max.
Would be nice if you could just ask the bank for the shards needed because that 500 that doesn’t need Dark just dumped them all ion the bank.

If you aren’t going to be helpful or constructive then there is no need to continue to post.

or maybe i have 7mill of the rest and i have all elite maxed for attack and defense and i have 2 mythic defense maxed and 2 offense mythics maxed :face_with_hand_over_mouth: and just leveling up random crap this event i am a 500 plus as well and bust my arse in atlas and finish every season completly

Then you spend a lot of time doing all atlas lines all the time. Some players are not there. Some players are on smaller teams. Some players only get 900 shards a run. some players might benefit from the help of players like you.

That’s why this part of the forums is called suggestions. Players make suggestions and we hope PG looks at them and takes them into consideration.

smallers should and not go to highers at all they should be able to do it period but folks will also send to there alts but regardless it will open a can of worms

Many smaller players also have better gear then alot of the bigger players it is a grind and many bigger players become lazy and it hurts the team just look at the even and check the point system!

That is laughable. So no one should ask for XP runs? No one should ask for food, wood, gold?

gold and food is different and xp :roll_eyes: why grind shards when we can have others grind it right kinda like castle guards why hit folks when we can hit guards PROMOTES LAZY PLAYERS!

Gold, food, wood, and xp are no different than shards. Why have someone help when you can grind it yourself.
You need to level a Prim go grind the 16.4M gold needed.
You need 2.2M wood go hit people until you have enough.
You want to level a dragon start attacking until you have enough.
Your new dragon needs XP, invader for the win.

This topic was simply a suggestion. Just because it is suggested doesn’t mean its going in game with next update. And if by chance PG says hey that’s not a bad idea and does put it in game. That doesn’t mean you have to donate any of your shards.

did not say update for starters im telling you it will promote lazy folks for one for 2 it will be abused highly if you cant grind your shards and finish a atlas season something is wrong and needs addressed

level 25 to 300 can finish a atlas season so can everyone else it is not hard at all!

i think what we should be able to do is give some of theses damn scrolls to non atlas folks that would be great!

I PREFER TO GIVE MY SHARDS TO NON ATLAS TEAMS THAT ARE ESTABLISHED AND SCROLLS

Not agree with this, but agree that non atlas should have more scrolls and shards for reasonable activity.

Back to topic, I’d worry less about lazy folk and more about cheated resources, as shards are still limited, compared to gold

i have a mill scrolls they can have them all if pg allowed as long as no atlas and established so they have a fighting chance against atlas folks but if your on a atlas team go out and get the mofos not hard to do

Are we seriously discussing ANOTHER suggestion for players trading currencies? It’s just the same topic re-skinned and revived over and over.

I do have a few suggestions to tweak this

  1. Instead of a currency, there’s a maximum amount ‘slot’/s that limits how much shards they can put up for trading. For example, you put up an offer of shards then select what shards you’d like to receive in exchange and be able to set a minimum. The offer will be available for 24 hours. Other players will place a bid for it, they can augment their offer with other color shards. At the end of the 24 hours, the bid with that offers the highest amount of shards that is desired will be automatically selected OR, before 24 hours ends, the player will be able to see available bid offerings and choose which one they prefer. e.g. Someone was willing to give you 300k wind shards for 250k ice shards but there’s another offer at 250k wind shards and 1M Fire shards, which you also happen to need; if you logged on earlier. After the exchange happens, there’s 24 hour wait to be able to put out another offer. Between waiting times, the player can look at other available offers to bid on but can only make a maximum number of attempts. All shards put out on bids that one did not win are returned to the player.
  2. Open it up to the 5TA. Everyone in the team has access to the same castles so it would likely be that everyone is looking for the same element of shards :joy:

Execution Options:
A) Add a button in the bank or somewhere in the atlas interface
B) Let us access it in the main game via Port; this opens up the potential to bring the feature to non-atlas teams as well.
C) New Atlas Infra called the “Plaza” - the higher the level of the plaza, the more bids players can make. … yeah this is redundant with the bank. Just go with option A or B

edit: tl;dr no need for a token currency, just ‘cool downs’ between trades and attempts

3 million of one particular shard is nothing when you started leveling up your gears… also, trading of any sort will not be allowed by PG as it is prone to abuse and hacks
