only if there's an asking price attached, 1 to 1 trade with no gp traded will have no scam issues


Even so, it still happens so we don't need yet another outlet for this IMO.

We should be cutting down on how ppl can scam others not introducing more ways.

You won't be able to complete the trade if coins are involved, it's strictly a 1 lucky for 1 lucky trade. Scamming is therefore not possible.



Sounds like someone hasn't heard of 2 step trading before.

This happens all the time with the elite outfits so it is indeed possible.

"Hey man, I'm selling a dragon 2h... but before we trade, you have to give me 1m before that trade, ok?"


Exactly.

Just because you cant use anything else in the initial trade for the item, doesn't mean they cant ask for a payment before hand.

So just because some ppl don't know that theres usually only 1 trade needed for items, they need to release yet more ways to confuse ppl?

Plus how will you explain jagex's loss in th sales as you wouldn't need to buy keys to get the lucky you want anymore?

^ I considered in b4 coming to the conclusion that it's a very bad idea...

I however will draw on the scam card again..

Player a "I want lucky chaotic claws"
Level noob pker "I have lucky chaotic claws. Trade for 10m."
Player a "ok" *gives 10m*
Level noob pker "oh, u only have lucky bandos helm. Sry, I already have that. BYE!"


Exactly what will happen if the outfits are anything to go by.

So once again, lets not introduce more ways to get scammed plz.

How can you have this opinion for stupid people getting pked, yet a conflicting opinion for stupid people getting scammed? Be consistent.


How can you mis-quote me on something that totally unrelated to this thread?

Be consistent.

Just because I feel one way about one thing doesn't mean I have to feel the same for everything.

Im sorry im not one of your brain dead yes men that agrees on everything.

If you cant tolerate me having a difference of opinion then tough shits.

Yet just because I feel one way on a pk thread doesn't mean I have to feel the same way here.

On a lucky item thread.

So if you cbb to discuss the topic then ill just ignore you.

I'm not wanting you to be a yes man and I don't have a problem with people having different opinions. I'm just baffled that you can have two conflicting opinions on almost the same matter. .


TFW a wildy thread is the same thing as a lucky item thread...

Doesn't matter if some scams are more "obvious" than others or not, the fact of the matter is we need to be lessening the amount that can happen not making more.

If you choose to be so blind that you don't care who does/doesn't get scammed, then I feel sorry for you.

I don't think players should be babysitted even more after all the security related content introduced. Heck, the trading interface is going full red alert when you do a trust trading.


Its not about babysitting. its about reducing scams in game

it wont do a red alert when its trust trading??? trust trading is done in 2 trades. 1 for the items 1 for the gp


Exactly.

Considering player 2, the person you're trading with, has every reason to just leave with the gp you give, just proves why it doesn't need to happen.

indeed and think is this a good idea?

hmm this change will probably be abused for scamming. the impact of it positively is very small. but can cause serious harm as people will get scammed

... seems like a no brainer but somehow we on 6 pages?


Couldn't agree more.

be cool to actually get a full set, think caus theres so many lucky items your more likely to only ever part complete sets


This is exactly why they are untradeable, to get you to buy more keys in hopes of getting a full set.

So doing this would undermine that whole point.
