How to upgrade your deck to the next level in Splinterlands
One of the trickiest things in Splinterlands is to actually upgrade your deck. Every card that is in the game can be upgraded by combining several cards of the same type to create a more powerful card.
The number of cards necessary will vary according to the rarity of a card and also according to the edition of a card.
Why upgrading cards has to be planned well
If you have several cards of the same type you can easily combine them but this doesn't mean that you will be able to play this upgraded card! There are some limits built into the game that are important to be aware of.
Limited by the league that you play in
Every league has what is called a summoner cap. This is a cap of what level of cards are allowed to be played in a certain league. For example in novice league you can only play level 1 cards. In bronze you can already play level 3 common, level 2 rare and epic and level 1 legendary cards. If you are in novice there is doesn't bring anything to upgrade your cards.
Limited by your summoners
Another important fact is that you can only play an upgraded card if you have a summoner capable of playing it. A rare summoner of level 1 will only allow you to play level 1 cards. To be able to play more powerful cards, you will first need to upgrade your summoners!
How to upgrade your deck
Because of these limits, Splinterlands doesn't offer a shortcut to the top! Therefore you have to grow your deck slowly but surely and get better at the game. The first step is to upgrade the summoner of one splinter and then upgrade the cards of this splinter in the range of this summoner. Once you are fine with this splinter, you can start to upgrade another splinter. These upgraded splinters will then allow you to reach the next levels and you can then think to upgrade your summoner to the next level.
It's a slow process and it's important not to waste money in trying to jump forward. The game will prevent you from doing so and you will have blocked money that should have been used differently.
