Remember that without proper precautions taken, there is a chance that a legitimate player-to-player trade ends up badly for one of the sides, and here's where we'd like to give a little helping hand with a few pointers on trading best practices. As they say, prevention is the best cure:
- Pay close attention to the items that you are being offered. Highlight each of them individually, so that you know that you're being offered what was agreed upon.
- If your trade partner offers more items than what was agreed upon, that's a red flag! Nobody would want to end up on a losing side of a trade, so there should be no reason for them to do so! Always make sure the items you were originally offered are still there and were not removed
- When possible try to trade with people you know.
- Getting a 3rd person involved can also be a red flag. If building trust is the argument invoked, then play a few more games with that person, do some "warm-up" trades with less valuable items, get to know them a bit better, before engaging in trading with the more valuable ones. Remember, there will always be someone wanting what you have to offer and vice-versa, there is no point in rushing things by getting a middleman involved.
Remember! It is the responsibility of all players to ensure that a trade is fair and equitable before accepting the trade. Our support team cannot intervene in trades.
