Play Splinterlands and Forget About the Market! :)

As the markets are getting rekt in various ways these days, I preferred to write a positive post today, to keep that out of my focus as much as possible.

This post is about Splinterlands, an oasis of calm for me in an agitated crypto market, despite its tokens being dumped as well.

That is actually curious that I think of Splinterlands this way because as a player it sometimes frustrates me, as I'm sure anyone has such moments.

Here's an easy therapy (just my experience, I'm not a therapist!), if you get affected by what's going on in the markets. Play Splinterlands!

We are now 5 days away from the end of the season. Yesterday, about 20 hours or so ago, I completed my objective for this season: reaching Champions League 3. I think this is the earliest I've reached CL3 in recent history. My previous record was 5 days, but this is almost 6 days (5d20h). Of course, this was a very long season as well, and that matters a lot.

I immediately rented out what I could from my playing deck, remaining to do the same with the cards I used yesterday when the cooldown expires.

I believe there will be a time when I'll keep pushing my limits in the game again, but that time hasn't come yet.

Maybe after I max out the Chaos Legion set. Maybe after the new rewards for ranked games come into play. We'll see.

For now, I still think the best option for me is to rent out my playing deck as soon as I reach CL3. It would have been better if I were CL2 instead of CL3, to avoid gold at the start of the season, but that's still not a guarantee, because I'll meet only top players at the beginning of the season if I start in Diamond 2. So I might still end up in gold and build up from there.

In all these crazy market conditions, there's one thing that stood ground, and some even increased: the price of CL summoners.

Yesterday, I maxed another summoner, General Sloan, at a better price than we have on the market now:

I'm not a big fan of General Sloan.

I'd rather use Selenia Sky for the +1 Range Attack bonus, and access to Dragon monsters, while costing only 3 mana instead of 4.

At the same time, General Sloan is a Life splinter summoner, which offers an alternative when you have this quest, although I wonder what quests will be in the future or if we will have these classic "quests" after the new reward system is rolled out.

It is also a +1 Range attack alternative if the Dragon splinter is disabled.

It's also a modern format summoner, while Selenia Sky only works in the wild format.

So, now I have 4 out of 6 summoners maxed. Two more to go before I go back to maxing monsters.

Splinterlands is a good distraction these times. But what to do now, that I rented out my playing deck? :)

I guess I'll go back to my bronze test account while I don't play my main account and see if I can make something out of it. I know people are juggling multiple accounts at the same time, but personally, I wasn't very good with that and it takes too much time to play more accounts on a daily basis (I tried that for a while).

I have some ideas. One possibility would be that some got scared. Another possibility would be that some people sold them to buy something else that was tanking.

I think they are both wrong because Splinterlands has gone through a bear market before and its assets will be relatively ok compared to others.

Having a distraction to get you away from the news and charts is a very healthy escape. Thanks, Adrian for pointing that out.

Exactly. It's good for the state of mind and prevents you from doing anything in a panic.

Good to remember...Splinterlands was born in a bear market!

Great way to remind us, there are amazing things happening when you ignore the FUD!

That's pretty much the plan for me too.

Markets are shit so have some fun and earn more crypto. Wait for the bounce back.

Yep, it's pretty easy to get dragged into negativity if you watch everything falling and read everyone spreading panic.

Splinterlands is an easy fix for that. Writing a post about anything else but the market is another fix. Going outside and enjoying nature is another one.

Congrats man for having already reached Champ 3. Yesterday I reached Diamond 1 and I definitely want to reach champ 3 before the end of the season :-)

Thanks man! This is a great opportunity to do so. Because this was a VERY long season, and there was time to rank up before the EOS days.

It is always good to have some way to escape when times are bad. Splinterlands is an excellent distraction. Thanks for sharing.

This is awesome! Today a friend of mine showed me a Short Futures position for Luna from $114!!! It is awesome, it had gained something around 10k% - so just as you say (or I understood it from your post, hehe) bear market also brings different opportunities.

I wanted to ask you my friend: where do you see individual cards charts? This is a very very cool tool, if you ask me.

Bearish markets: time to grab some !PIZZA, play Splinterlands, and share with family and beloved ones.

Best regards,

Looks like your friend made a pretty safe bet with a huge return. Maybe it wasn't safe when he started the position (I don't know that), but in the long-run it turned out to be that way.

A bit of luck, however, it was foreseeable that markets weren't going higher and higher non-stop as many thought.

Thanks a lot for the website. I will surely use it in the near future.

If he knew what he was doing and wasn't just guessing, it wasn't about luck at all in this case. LUNA price was crashing (and still is) to support UST.

A good distraction is what you need right now. All the fear in the market is kind of crazy and I can tell it's pretty bad based on the posts on LeoFinance.

Yeah, I saw that too on Leofinance... I can only assume what's on Twitter because I don't use it 99% of the time, and certainly not in these situations.

TBH, I am affected, but in a different way. I get excited, but I can't do much due to a lack of buying power.

4 out of 6 summoners maxed

Wow! I wonder how long will it take for me to level up my favorite summoners?

You have to start from somewhere. Choose one and upgrade it to the level you need it. Don't upgrade it past the level you are limited at in the league you play.

Mylor is my favorite. I need at least 100 USD to upgrade it to level 2.

Pay attention, they will release a new ability with the new reward cards which will not be favorable to Mylor.

Really? Thanks for that info. Whenever I use Mylor, I could easily complete at least three types of quests: earth, sneak, and snipe.

My advice is to wait until the new reward cards are out, so you can know exactly what you are dealing with. I like Mylor too, by the way.

I believe they will be released simultaneously with the new reward system. Someone in the latest town hall mentioned these updates will be deployed by the end of May and will enter the scene the following season, which will probably be at the beginning of June.

That is good news! I thought they already adjusted the reward system. I was wondering because I didn't see any change at all.
