teamplay is lacking

    my friends and I are enjoying this game but playing together doesnt seem to have much benefits
    on the contrary i find myself competing against my friends over items which i dont enjoy doing

    i would love to see the teamplay improved by making some items aura/team based (ie a dmg aura instead of a dmg buff for 1 person only)
    also an option to trade items would be nice
    some items are more useful on certain characters and it sucks if u pick one up by accident

    ideally some trade window or a shop inbetween rounds would be a nice addition

      I admit, I almost stop playing in multiplayer because of that.
      The "share item" option is not bad but it is annoying to have to scream to other people to take
      item that you find...

        If you have to compete with your friends over items they're not very good friends...

        But I agree that it'd be nice to be able to drop items and give them to team-mates.

            I'm actually finding it better to play alone at this point...

            In Multiplayer, one person ends up getting stuff first and carrying the team while everyone else invariably dies.
            I end up disconnecting and playing the same run 3 times as fast and with 3 times as many items to work with, and any failure to succeed is due to my mistake, and not item hogging allies.

            Even when we DO coordinate our item pickups to go to who can use it the most, we still go along rather weakly since they're so spread out.

                The game could be SO much more fun for coop play!!! PLEASE ADD THE OPTION FOR SHARING ITEM BUFFS INSTEAD OF HAVING TO SPLIT THEM UP!!! It makes no sense to punish us for playing coop. We should be able to progress further with more people!
