So basically I spent the last year on GW2 and just came back to the original game (I love it too much ).
So I guess the idea was maybe already discussed, but how would you feel about a Trading Post in Guild Wars 1?
1- How do you picture it? How would it work?
2- How difficult would it be to add it to the game? I have no knowledge in video game development, so what kind of means are required for the TP to be fully working? How expensive for ANet?
3- Would it be possible? Regarding the economy (the different currencies used like ectos, arms, gold, or even the drop system with all the "unique" weapons you can get)
4- What are the pros & cons?
I guess it's something that I always dreamed of in Guild Wars. If we could imagine a working TP, I am sure it would really be appreciated by the community and it would enhance the game experience (not having to spend hours in Kamadan ).
Of course it won't happen, I am mostly curious if some people with experience can provide some answers to these questions, and have everyone's opinion, that would be interesting!
If the overall cost of such a project is reasonable, maybe we could discuss ways to finance it for ANet (possibilities are endless, but we could imagine paying to access this feature, or just donate to help the project starting, send another batch of cupcakes to their office )
Share your opinion, and please be respectful in your answers. I'm sure I am a little naive to even hope it could happen
