I don't know why there hasn't been a thread about having a trade system in place.

Something along the lines of Trading IP, RP, Skins, and Runes. This would definitely make it so that the users will have an influx in enjoying the game while being able to trade for the (1) skin that they always wanted really bad. (Possibly Marketing/Auction house in the future?). I know this will take a lot of work to get it perfected so that the players will be able to enjoy their money on what they spend.

There is a lot of advantages to this system as well as small disadvantages.
+Good Community Support
+Fun trading
+Get exactly the champion skin you are willing to trade for!
-Possible Scams/Exploitation


As any system that you have to build, I would say this is something the community definitely wants as maybe you don't want the legendary skin you bought anymore and would rather have a different one to trade on or sell for RP for something else, I have no clue, but having that option available helps out. How the system is made is beyond me at this moment, I would be happy if just trading the skin or giving(gifting) it to another player would be awesome (Possible gift skin function in the store?).


These are just my simple thoughts as there are many threads that start up and are required to make a 2k vote impact in order for their "Trade" to go through.

Many of the users dedicated to getting their skins for themselves to achieve is awesome, but as a whole community, I feel we should be looking out for everyone and not just ourselves right?

Hope this thread was helpful and that maybe a Riot employee will consider the possibility of doing such a system.

Thanks for reading!

Seems like a really great idea.. However, you always have to be cautious when adding trading/auction systems due to player exploitation of these features.. But I think it would be awesome to add these!

Yea, that is definitely the only huge risk of such a thing, but hopefully they can find a solution to it.

That and Riot would lose a bit of money by allowing such a system.

Bump, and they wouldn't lose money if they created a riot point fee per trade like 250 riot points or something small.

i support this idea, but i don't support the idea of a skin auction house, creating a freaking economy around skins, saying which skins are "worth more" than the other skins

That can be a solution, or even charge a standard price just for trade access (i.e. 650RP in order to trade with other summoners for a whole month, idk) Again, just thoughts that I cannot personal give on because I would rather have a design team figure out how they would put this together.

They can easily design a system that can make it so they wont lose any if they make smart design decisions.

I feel that the skin auction house would never go above the value of what it currently is worth on the market, it is more of a lower price than what is already there. (i.e. Champion Skin 946+ in auction house for 500, anything above that value would probably not get bid on). This is all just an example of what can happen, I am more towards support of a trade system than a auction house (Which again can probably take compensation for hosting the auction of the user - i.e. 100 for a listing RP).
