  • Here are the rules that determine duplicate trade eligibility:
    • Coated items are not counted as duplicates along with uncoated items
      • Player owns one (1) unpainted tornado and one (1) black painted tornado. No item will appear in the Trade In list
    • The same item with the same painted theme is considered a duplicate
      • The player has (2) Black Tornadoes. One (1) Black Cyclone will appear in your Trade In list
    • The same item with different painted features is not considered a duplicate
      • Player has one (1) Lemon Tornado and one (1) Black Tornado. No item will appear in the Trade In list
    • Approved items are counted as duplicate items along with unapproved items
      • The player has one (1) approved tornado and one (1) unapproved tornado. The unapproved item will appear in the exchange list
    • The same item with different certificates is considered a duplicate
      • Player owns one (1) Acrobat Cyclone and one (1) Aviator Cyclone. The duplicate item with lower stats will appear in the trading menu
