    Lightbulb Trade Window

    Why can we only fit 4 items in the trade window?
    It seems to me that increasing that number would reduce the number of scams that take place when involving more than 4 items from a player, not to mention the greater number of options when trading.

    How would increasing the number of items allowed in the trade window lower the possibility of being scamed? To me it would increase the number of scams. The more items the harder it is to see which items got changed. 4 items is enough imo. But again i dont believe in scammers just impatient people. People that dont take a few seconds to see what they are acutely buying, and if it is the item/gold that they agreed to.

    I should've been more clear.
    An example of a scam would be:
    Player A offers 8 items for 1 item, Player B accepts.
    Player A gives 4 items and receives the 1 in return.
    Before giving the last 4 items, Player A leaves.


    Yes, possible to avoid these scams, but more slots would lower the chances of it happening.

    That will hugely increase more scams with new or inexperienced/impatient
    People. As stated above by chocolatey

    If anyone is gullible enough to do a trade like that, im sorry but it's your own fault nobody else's. 4 items in the trade window has worked perfectly fine for years now, why fix something that isn't broken. Mehh what do i know, im a Choco junkie

    The average AL player can only count to 4. Sorry!

    Almost all scams are partly fault of the scammed one, but if the scam could be avoided by improving the system, why not improve it then?
    Just because something is not broken, it does not mean it couldn't and shouldn't be improved.

    I kinda agree with this. I don't play/trade often, but I'm already paranoid enough not being able to see the 4th item in the trade window. It'll be easier to count the amount of items wrong, especially with the scrolling.

    It seems that a lot of people agree with you.

    However, with more item slots, you would still have the option to only put 4 items, as you like. It's only if you would rather trade more than 4 that you would use it... So I don't really see that as a problem.

    Also, in addition, the trade window could be made larger, to avoid the "paranoid" issue.

    I think a better system would be the ability to trade items in bulk, such as >100x item< and it show as 1 slot when you trade.

    That would also be a great addition.

    > More slots
    > Larger window
    > Bulk items (+ counter)

    It's pretty obvious everybody can count beyond 4. Please don't instigate for something that's obviously meant as humorous. Nobody has gotten offended by it, in fact I received a few thanks for the humour.

    I think removed trade system will solve many thing including scam, gold seller, or anything else. So, auction is the only one place for player to sell and buy stuffs. A lot of item you can sell in auction, it's providing more slot than trading to someone.
