    I think that people should be able to trade. Maybe say a person has the rocket launcher but i want it and that person wants the bugbait which i have so then if we wanted to we could trade them so i could get the rocket launcher and he would have the bugbait. Also we could do the same for the playermodels and stuff like maybe i have all the weopons and want to trade five of my weopons for the rainbow fez with a guy so that can happen possibly i made this thread.

    I dislike this idea, if you bought something and don't need anymore then tough luck. I don't want to go into a server and see a bunch of people bartering rather than playing the actual game. Flood is individual and shouldn't have anything to do with other people and their supply/demand. If you want something, earn it the real way.

    Nice post, how about you actually contribute rather than borderline spam.

    I mean I think its pointless to trade items unless if the flood economy was more strict. There are people who are more experienced that doesn't need any trading. Trading would be good if we add more things to the Token Shop and Premium Features like Crates/Unusuals and etc.

    Why I find this can be easily abused. IN COLORS! (I chose colors that won't hurt your eyes.

    People will trade other games in-game junk for flood junk.
    Ex. I buy a Fin player model for someone, they give me a Ak-47 Cartel in CSGO. (Someone actually gave me skins for flood cash.)


    A friend will buy everything for there friend that just started on the server.
    Ex. Rick tells Bender to come on the server, and he joins for the first time. Bender have nothing, and ask Rick to give him guns. Rick then gives
    him all the guns, and rebuy his guns back.


    Like people do now, they will ask for tokens, cash, or player models to join that team.
    Ex. Winning team: Join my team for 25 tokens. Bummy Loser: Here is 25 tokens, not let me win!

    1. Well they're retarded if they do that because earning Finn is fucking easy if you play repetitively.

    2. Rick can just give Bender money.

    3. Hopefully there will be a rule for that and that is retarded as well.

    1. Some people don't want to earn 200k

    2. Rick, and Bender was just an example, and Rick can not give Bender money. He does not have that much power.

    3. Probably not because this happens with flood cash.

    I'm providing the examples you placed. If they do not want to earn 200 k, than its their fault.

    And I was providing examples you placed. If they do not want to earn 200k in Flood, they can just give someone something worth 200k in there opinion. This is why if trading was added, this would ruin the point shop.

    I don't think Flood Cash is worth anything since it is virtual cash.

    It's not a good idea because you can just give people money if they want to get player models/guns. What is the point of trading if you can easily obtain everything in the shop? Plus rules and restrictions will have to be put in place for this useless feature.

    Like what would you trade? A 20 token skin for a 10 token skin? No point of adding trading, you'll just flood the server with people spamming "BUYING UNUSUAL RAINBOW FEZ - TRADE ME" binds.

    Why would anyone do that trade? 15 tokens is not that hard to get if you play for like...half an hour-an hour. Nobody in their right mind would ever do that trade.

    honestly? fucking sucks for them. it seems like this feature requires way too many regulations and effort with barely any positives other than the situation of a person wanting another skin after getting tired of their old skin, and even then, at that point they would have enough money to just buy the other skin in the first place so it doesnt even matter

    I don't find that a stupid ass reason they should not be trade-able.
    I even gave a scenario.
