I am running into an issue that many here have mentioned: TOO MUCH CLUTTER! Some people sell, some donate, som continue to hoard…
For BL3 I’m posing an interesting suggestion: a multi-platform “trading” post. Online capabilities would be required, so as so be able to contact the Gearbox (or 3rd party) servers. The main server should be able to be queried by all platforms (Xbox, Playstation, Steam, PC), and handle all transactions.
Basically there would be a few things you can do:
- Currency Exchange - Change one currency into another at rates based on supply and demand.
- Donate Items to the Thrift Store - You can donate items to the Thrift Shop for BA ranks, based on rarity, parts, and how much you donated previously (eventually you would just earn 1 even on the rarest uniques)
- Buy Items from the Thrift Shop - Guns that are donated are stored in a database and will randomly be added to the inventory of the appropriate vendor at a discount price. Also random hard-to-find items may also randomly be added (I’m looking at you Norfleet and Twister…). Prices would be listed in various currencies and users would have the option to pay in whichever they wanted.
- Take Random Challenges - Random Collect/Kill Quests for ongoing challenges.
