it get's harder every season to keep up

i used to make it to diamond 3 - but lately i'm lucky to pull off gold 2

i guess that's not bad since i only invested $100 63 seasons ago LOL

making it this far just stacking cards from winning and buying some with $dec rewards

ABSOLUTELY !!!

We all start from nothing and have to learn to save (even if it's little pieces at a time)

I'm not 'well off' by any means - but I am $2500 ahead of where I would have been if I wasn't at least trying.

;)

It took Buffet 40 YEARS before he even started making REAL $$$ - it's all a patience game ...

I remember the good old days when I was battling in the Champion 2 league with worse cards than I have now... At this moment, I'm proud of myself if I get into the Diamond 3 league... lol...

I think I have logged in to splinterslands before, although I have not been active and I haven’t gotten the Spellbook, can I still make use of your referral links ?

For Rising Star, I haven’t been there before.

If you have logged in already, you are probably already assigned so it wouldn't work. RS is a nice game worth checking out.

Ok, thanks. It seems I will need to log in first in a PC, before I would be able to log in on phone. I’ll do that as soon as I get a PC to lay hold on

Yes for RS you need to sign up using a desktop or laptop. Afterwards it's possible to create a link that you can use from a mobile.

The bots also seem to have gotten better lol. Not sure if they are around in the higher leagues. Anyway, always enjoy watching your vids. You always have interesting and unique content. !PIZZA

Thanks for the feed-back. In the upper leagues I think there are less bots. I believe it has to do with double rule set that makes programming the bots quite difficult.

I have seen that the first two days of season are very tough. After I get back into Silver III it seems to return to normal. Normal being winning around 50% and streaks move you up 50 - 100 rank per day.

The beginning of the season is when it's the most difficult to go up in the ranking. It seems that even with 50% win rate, we go down.

Wow I never realized it but I have noticed the first days are extremely frustrating lately. I just do my quest and it just seems like I lose more than I can win sometimes.

Yes, the first couple of days I tend to go down rather than up and I believe it's the same for most of us.

I wholeheartedly agree. I would expect the collection power limits to be enough for restricting players from rising in leagues!

Yes, in my opinion it doesn't make sense to have players pushed down in the ranking because this will dissuade them to upgrade their decks.

Soon enough all players will be on BRONZE III .
With no DEC prizes .

That's an interesting observation! Looks like everyone is facing the same issue actually. Let's hope this doesn't continue for too long.

Yes, it can be a bit frustrating to go downhill constantly.

It's true about the density of players during the first days, but also hard to play with gold limitations when you rely on fully upgraded cards. If you drop into gold from diamond, it's getting harder and harder to escape, unless you get a streak of luck. I'm still trapped in Gold 1 (borderline Gold 2 actually) and by now I should normally be attacking Diamond 2. Yeah, frustrating to say the least...

It's kind of "dangerous" to drop too much because the way back is long and frustrating. At the moment I try to avoid to play too much. I play my quests and then I wait until 5 days before the end of the season to get up in the ranking.

Maybe that's a better strategy. I dropped from diamond 3 to gold 2 in the first day of the season and I'm struggling since.

There's also the mirage of higher DEC rewards during the first two days of the season which makes top players play or rentals extended passed the end of season.

Yes I think the higher DEC rewards have this effect. I ended in diamond 1 and dropped to gold 1 at the beggining of the season. But after playing I droped into gold 2 almost to gold 3. So I kind of avoid playing early in :-)

No, I ended the season in CL 3, so I started in diamond 3. Then dropped to gold 2. That's painful.

That is funny because when I am on a hot losing streak like last night I lost 6 battles in a row, it felt like the game wanted me to lose.
I thought I was just being a sore loser :-D

I think the losing and winning ratio stays more or less the same over time but what changes is the points that you get for wins or that you lose for defeats. Let's say you win, you get 10 points. You lose, they take 20 points. Like that the algorithm can prevent you from getting up in the leagues.

I have not really noticed that, but you are surely correct because I have been dumped into Novice and then boom jumped back up to almost making it to Bronze 2 before being dumped down again lol
