Splinterlands adjusts rewards based on card level
Proposal status: passed
An exciting change is on the horizon! The upcoming update in the Splinterlands crypto game reduces rewards through battles if your cards aren't maximized for the league you're playing. It's fantastic.
The number one reason we have to smile while thinking about this is increased scarcity. We want to level up cards so we can earn more, which greatly consumes available BCX. Fewer cards available means higher prices. Whatever we already own or level up now has already gained greater intrinsic value.
Reason number two for smiling is how we'll earn a lot more from every match, because bots with level 1 cards aren't going to take as much as they used to. In fact, they probably won't earn 20% as much as they did in Gold League. Their gains in Silver league diminish to less than 50%. If you're a human instead of a bot, it's party time!
The final reason you should be happy about this update is the rental marketplace. Leveled up cards lost rental value instead of gaining - a 115 Xenith Monks of only 1 BCX can be rented out for double as much as a level 8 Xenith Monk up until now. However, when levels matter, players want to rent cards according to the league they're playing.
So, there you have it. This is even better for the economy than the Collection Power update was. Thank you, Splinterlands development team.
