Risen shows why Diablo 4 will ban item trading



When the developers of Diablo 4 announced in 2019 that there would be no free item trading, many fans of the action RPG series were disappointed. Ultimately, this eliminates a way to get absurdly rare items with perfect stats.

The big loss of Diablo 4 showed it with the so-called smart loot Diablo 3’s loot system will likely return. In concrete terms, this means that you are more likely to find equipment for the class you are currently playing. So you should be able to get the items you want without trading.

A current Diablo 2: Resurrected trade dispute shows why this controversial decision could prevent many problems.

Free trade favors scammers

The new ladder season started almost two weeks ago in D2: Resurrected and shortly thereafter the first players with perfect endgame gear appeared in multiplayer games. Of course, they didn’t find it on their own, but they bought it from external websites like the D2JSP trading forum. A Reddit user has now targeted the well-known exchange service.

In this forum, players can trade their Diablo 2 items with each other using a separate resource called gold hole acts as an intermediate currency. This can also be purchased for real money directly from the site operators.

The problem: According to the Reddit user it is due to commerce the whole spirit of the game, especially the ladder be ruined. Specifically, he describes a situation he experienced in his multiplayer round:

There is a guy in my party who equips himself with Forum Gold bought Magic Find items and proudly displays his 40 Chance Guards and 50 War Travs (War Traveler Boots) in chat.

The user explains it further the point of resetting the scale is that everyone should start over and that the ability to buy the best equipment with an external currency kills the allure of the new season.

What is certain: As long as there is free trade, people will try to sell their found items for real money on Ebay, forums and gold seller sites. Fair competition in the ladder is thus sabotaged. Gold / item sellers also have the opportunity to maximize their profits with bots.

On the other hand, limited trade means that there is no social component and no possibility, as in Path of Exile, to profit from useless items.

Now it’s your turn

How do you see it? Do you want all items to be freely tradable like in Diablo 2? Do you think it’s more exciting and fair if everyone has to find their own equipment? Or do you want to choose between a normal free trade ladder and an individual ladder (SSF) like in Path of Exile?
