If trading was implemented somehow, SM would gain tons of popularity and a very large community.
Which would most likely result in more people spending money on the game.
However, it’s very hard to execute.
The main problem is people who would make alt accounts just to get tokens which would also give them a way to “cheat” the game system.
But if some longer intro were to be implemented, and restrictions for trading. Then yes. It would be an awesome idea.
Trading after levels isn’t an option as a stand-alone restriction. Something more has to be added.
However, I rather believe that there will have to be a restriction which includes L-M item for L-M item.
That way, people won’t be able to abuse the trading system with alt accounts, while also giving trades a limit per week or per day.
So in order to get a nice L-M item that you want, you will have to find a partner who accepts your L-M item. So both parties will eventually benefit in their interests.
I personally think that is the only way to go…
Feel free to criticize my opinion in case I am lacking something, or suggest something new?
P.S.: Trading in SM will have a system holes, which are hard to cover. The real question is if it’s worth it for devs and community as a whole. It’s something very radical for this game.
