Why Do I Need My Dark Energy Crystals?

Screenshot of Splinterlands  Collect, Trade, Battle! 52.jpg

I don't have a lot of DEC but I question whether or not if I need them all.

When I first started the game I would win them in battle and in chests and shortly that will be taken away for Bronze Players. So unless I spend more time, attention and money on the game I won't be earning any.

As a Bronze Player I will get a low chance at a card, credits and potions. Not very exciting and it is the exciting things you can win that help convert new players into real players who have hopes and dreams to play on.

I understand there may be reasons that the changes will help the game long term but if we think of the throngs of new players having come onver the last 2 months, they have already had the rules changed on the twice and the even newer players will come to find they can't earn what they heard was waiting for them when the joined up.

I think Bronze leagues are where you turn your tire kickers and window shoppers into customers and even brand ambassadors. WE always need to a good customer experience for the new players. I think that was downgraded. There may be valid reasons for it, but it's a downgrade, It will slow growth and not compell new players to keep playing leading splinter to become a niche game. A good niche game but only a niche game. I'm one of the newer players who doing well in bronze but can't survive in Silver.

So what should I do with my current DEC? I won't be earning any more so what will I need for? Something other than airdrop points? If I can learn why I need them I'll save them, if not I should sell while they are high.

And it seems to me at my 400ish SPS from the drop won't get me packs but selling could get me a few hundred dollars. I'd love to get packs but I can wait until after the presale.

I'm just wondering out load is there no more place for bronze level players and is it better to sell the sps and DEC that we earned before.

Please leave thoughts in the comments. I want to learn as much as I can about it before I make a move.

How many SPS you need for packs?

Use this. It's a tool to calculate it. Just input how much sps you already have and play around with the values

I will have enough sps to buy 4 packs during the presale. Id be better off selling the sps right before the drop and continue earn another 280 days of drops. I can buy packs for $4.00 after the presale if I want cards. But I won't be earning dec anymore in bronze so I'm wondering what I need those for or just sell this too. I can buy cards with credits earned in battle.

It depends on what you believe the direction for SPS to be. I suggest if you want to earn more SPS Airdrop, try SPS DEC liquidity pools. Check out this video

I think it depends on what you want. Do you think SPS will do well? I know there are high ambitions for things and the vouchers are one reason. So in a way the vouchers are extra value for us to sell for value if we want. I just don't know if we will get enough vouchers.

You've just gotta make a call on whether the short-term cash injection from selling your Dark Energy Crystals will outweigh the long-term value generated from receiving the SPS airdrop.

If you don't think that the money you're making in bronze is worth your time, then maybe you should start looking at some of the passive income options from the game instead?

Keeping your DEC and pooling it on Cub Finance in the DEC:BUSD LP gets you SPS and CUB.

Renting out your cards will continue to passively build your DEC stack which will also generate SPS.

Anyway, there are a few considerations for you to weigh up before making a final call :)

What about using your DEC to rent cards, 25k dec should hold you up for few months of rentals. Especially if you focus on renting cheap but higher level summoners. Or if the rentals won’t work, how about buying cheap summoners and raise the levels of your cards?

I hold most of mine for the 200% APR SPS drop - why sell a token when it's yielding you that much?!?

Also the SPS is worth holding onto as there's bound to be future drops on that.
