Today, I've purchased 102 chaos legion packs. Read how it turned out
In my experience, opening booster packs from Splinterlands is not so reliant on luck. Market prices are quite accurate most of the time, unless it's something that just released. So if you buy a bunch of packs, you'll seldomly lose more than 10%. Whatever I get usually evens out - which happened to be the case with my 102 chaos legion packs.
I got very unlucky with gold foils. No summoner gold foils, yet again no legendary gold foils, but that's kind of taken for granted I guess, and generally lots of regular common cards. More than I usually get. STILL! I got pretty much the exact value I invested. Yes, let me explain.
As soon as I was done opening (using double potions, of course), peakmonsters told me the total value of my cards. Considering I'm selling them for 1% less than market prices and that I'm losing 5% as market fees... It came down to the exact same USD value I paid for! Down to the dollar! Haha.
I didn't sell all of them, though, but most are gone. Right now, I'm delegating a few cards to a friend who's playing and splitting the money with me. He has pretty much nothing except my cards, but he's having fun, because Splinterlands is a fun game. After telling him about Axie and Splinterlands, I suggested he'd have more fun with Splinterlands, which he agreed. He's been playing for over a month, craving for more.
In the image at the beginning of this post, you can see the cards I've delegated to him. Oh, I'm sure you thought for a moment those were the entirety of my booster pack drops, but nope. Posts look better with an image at the beginning, you know!
"Posts look better with an image at the beginning." 😁
I'm resisting to open all mine, since I want to take advantage of the future airdrops and increase my chances of getting the cards. But did open a few, and for sure the dollar amount was bigger than the packs value.
The way I see it, you make more money using/renting the cards before the airdrops so you can buy more packs, instead of waiting with idle assets. It's also my personal experience.
I didn't accumulate any vouchers for the pre-sale but I am looking forward to cracking a few packs in general sale.
I did already buy up quite a few Chaos Legions cards, but I am glad you were able to get pretty much the same value you put in even with people quick flipping on launch!😃
I've bought them for $10 each on hive-engine
Ok, so it seems like there is no net lost? Haha. But just curious, 102 Packs is a lot. How much did you paid for?
no loss no gain. 1k usd
Dude... 1k is a lot man! Hahhaa. Wow.... Sorry I am a student here, so 1k is like WOAH! Hahaha
ye I'd take a HUGE step back I had lost a lot. but it's generally safe, so I didn't feel any risk
hahaha. yea! and honestly looking at your cards, wow.... well worth though it is break even

Being a Splinterlands player, I was so happy to open two of my packs. I only purchased 11. I received two Rares, nothing spectacular. I did receive a nice boost to my Deck power, and air drop points :-)
I find that opening a whole bunch tends to even out, while opening a few always makes me lose money. Personal experience only. Also, never open packs without potions!
Great advice, I was just figuring out how many potions I needed to open the rest of my packs as far as HBD for credits. Then I read your reply and laughed out loud at how things just seemed to come together. 😉
imo you don't buy potions, you farm them from chests
Yes normally however at my level you get 1 chest per quest completion and it is not always a potion so I bought potions to increase my Deck Power and it worked now I just need to play better lol 😂
silver 3 is certainly the bare minimum to start getting returns. how far are you from this? I'm at 17,545 right now
I am far from you at 1,370. Will buy more chaos legion packs that may give me a bit of a boost.
Breaking even is a win in my book.
