    I know there's been talk of ideas for selling off unused items from our inventories. (Great idea by the way, future crafting mysteries aside...)

    But what about a gifting option within our clans, or even armadas (guilds, mobs whatever...) so that we can gift our unused items? Limited probably to prevent alt misuse, but it would be a great social tool. And that's a big premise of all these games surely?

    I would think the best reason is just what you said - alt misuse. I don't think our games need this. Zynga has loot chuckers for Mafia Wars, but we don't want to see KANO going the way of Zynga either. Hang onto your unused items. Kano may decide to use some for crafting and then you will need them. If you really don't want them, just delete them. Problem solved. :)

    Yeah - it would be abused to hell.

    They just need to come up with more stuff for us to craft.

    Shut up CJ, or I'll dismantle your hi-fi system and install a permanent wax cylinder set up that only plays Lena Zavoroni and Richard Clayderman. See how you like that all up in ya.... there'll be no slappin' da bass along to Rush then, no way.

    As one who worked hard in the early stages to acquire the now low att/def items, it seems a bit unfair to have the road paved for the next pirate. I would, however enjoy the ability to purchase Davy Jones points for others. (We can sort of already do it during Armada Wars.)

    Buy a FB FP card from local store=presto, then send them code from the card. Can you send me a gift card for the quick advice? :rolleyes: Much appreciated if do so :)

    I'm playing via Armor Games, so don't have access to FB's credit vouchers for gifting...

    I love this idea of gifting FP to an armada mate or friend. You are correct we have this in limited form during AW. The other plus to this is the increase in FP purchases. Think of the smiles you could create Xmas morning when they check the stockingsā€¦..or for any occasion. Kano could even sell them as electronic gift cards that would be emailed to them the day you choose.

    Actually no clue why this was brought up on this thread, I still accept FB voucher cards though, LOL.

    With gifting the game becomes even more focused on sucking up to high level players. It will also be heavily abused by players donating equipment to their alts.

    what about those of us that don't have alts and just want to help out their pals?

    When you suggest an idea and also how it can be abused in the same post then you might want to rethink it.

    You might want to rethink your reply. Isn't the idea of a thread like these to discuss pros and cons?

    Perhaps if replies in the forums were a little more constructive and less negative Kano wouldn't have to give bonuses to players to actually use them. Otherwise they'll just be full of the same people, with the same mind sets and pushing the same opinions. Sucks to be them.

    No need to rethink my post. You already listed the con. That's the point.

    i must say that i agree with marius on this. if we can't post ideas, then what the hell is the point of the forum? and there are so many ways that alt abuse already occurs, do you really think that this is going to make it that much worse by allowing inventory transfers between players?
