I think it would be a good idea to just have a multilayer board for player requests and trading, and an other for everything else (story, build topics, advice etc.)

I love that someone voted for starting one now, but I dont see one on the board yet.
Most people also don't realize that there will probably never be another barter board for any game ever again. The mods on this site don't want the extra work and refuse to make them anymore.

The old pokemon black/white boards get FIVE, one for each version, one for battles, one for trading, and one for social (? why?)

so maybe if we ask REEEEEEEEEEEEEALY nice, we might get two total

Most games don't get a board split unless they're really popular like Pokemon. Did Borderlands 1 get a split? The loot is random but it's not really diverse enough to warrant a barter system. It's more of a "share what dropped" game or if you're quitting, give away your gear. Everything is useful for everyone.

The trade and challenge system is enough that endgame loot trading might actually be viable this time around, especially with the bigger diversity of guns.

Maybe but I highly doubt it. I think the badass perks are random and small. Yes, the guns look different this time and such but it's not diverse in the sense that there's class specific gear outside of class mods. Everything is useable to everyone. The only reason people hang on to gear is for A.) Unique abilities or B.) Giving it to an alt or friend. I doubt most people pick up a Orange gun that they don't need and think "Hey, the community could use this! I could get an upgrade for it! It's far more inferior than what i need."

We are only limited by ourselves in this game. Every weapon can be good but people usually can find upgrades with little effort.

I don't know if modding will be any different in BL2, but if there's any modding at all what's the point of trading?
#9Ki_cat_Posted 9/16/2012 11:23:01 AM
Modding will be in but it's hard to ask for specific gear in any case.

BL's wasn't a huge title like BLs2 is, because it was a new game. There will be a lot more anti-modding programs and the such this time around because its a big release instead of a test.
