Trading Avatars?

I think this idea is self explanatory…but there are SOOOOO many cool avatars. I totally get why we can’t win or buy old ones…as it somehow lessens their value and isn’t fair to the players who worked hard or spent money to get them…HOWEVER what if we could trade avatars, just like baseball cards?

A simple notion and a fairly simple mechanic. You have an avatar and if you give it away then it is gone for good. However, a player who earned an awesome avatar seasons ago and missed a recent one could trade with another player. Everybody wins.

Could this work?

No. Sorry to say this, but no. No matter how you explain it or try to reason, it will always be unfair to players who worked their butts off getting past avatars. Try using the search feature on the top right corner next time, please! :blush:

Hello, thank you for joining in on the discussions of this online community. The question you are asking has been asked many times before. It is only natural to feel a sense of sadness and regret when you must finally retire a trusted dragon who has served you faithfully through many battles.

It is also natural to see other players flying amazing dragons and want to be able to obtain that dragon for yourself. However, divine dragons are meant to be collector’s items that are available only for a limited time. Allowing these dragons to be obtained outside of the season or limited time event that they were originally available for would belittle the effort and money that older players put into obtaining the dragons when they were first released. Effort and money that were expended with the understanding that this was the only chance they would have at obtaining these dragons.

Here are some quotes by PG employees in regards to this very issue.

Here are links to searches of previous threads on this topic. Past divine dragons, Rainbow Evolution Stones, and regular Evolution Stones.

If you feel that none of the posts in the searches above provide you with satisfactory answers, or you feel you have an idea worth discussing that hasn’t been discussed before, please reach out to Arelyna via a PM. If they feel your idea is worth discussing in the forums as a whole, they can reopen this thread so your idea can be discussed.

Until then, happy reading. We hope you will offer insightful ideas in the future.
