RE: What do you do with your Splinterlands vouchers?

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

Really timely post - I wonder myself what to do with it. After the crash in Fall/Winter 2021, I sort of thought Splinterlands related assets would rebound a little bit. But they keep falling, falling, falling. I am not following my own advice right now, but my numbers brain is telling me that when it comes to Splinterlands, everything is endlessly drifting down and prices on everything are only high when first released. I am mostly sunk costs at this point, watching everything depreciate beyond any hope of ever getting my investment back. So, I should be liquidating everything I get instantly because it all ends up worth less and less, haha, but I am just hanging onto Voucher hoping there will be one more pump left.

Actually, this is a normal market evolution for Splinterlands. It works a bit like sea waves. A big wave comes, then it bursts then the water retreats, then another wave comes and so on. Don't worry, more waves will come. Selling now wouldn't be advisable. I sell vouchers for DEC and SPS, which are also Splinterlands assets, and before that I sold them for HIVE because it's my main goal on Hive this year to increase my Hive Power to a certain level (but not doing very well at that).

I hope you are right! I got going in May last year and it was very disheartening, so many bad changes for new players, nerfing rewards, nerfing potions, each change making it harder. I did what they wanted, put outside money in, and for a little while I was able to ride some of the wave and my card deck increased in value. Now I'm down 50% on cards, hate the grind of battling bots for potions or maybe 1 Credit if I am lucky, to try to get back to Silver so I can get reward chests with $.03 value cards. Coming in when I did, it has been all down hill with the changes, not just market forces. So hopefully it can bounce back. I hate to complain all the time about Splinterlands, but it seems the very definition of the Sunk Cost Fallacy for post-Untamed players like me. But I agree with you even without having seen waves come and go before - cannot sell for such a big loss.

And the good part is that I really would not have gotten into HIVE without it, so I am quite happy with that part of it for sure! :)

Well, looks like the reward system is getting changed drastically. But they'll incentivize having your own cards and moving up the leagues, and that won't change. And competition is and will remain high.

Haha, that is true! I think I am not good enough at this game to compete with really good players like you :)

It is hard though, if you drop into the bot levels, it is difficult to predict what you will face and at least for me, my win % has gone down 30% since Chaos Legion started. Brain too small :)

I know people are doing really well and making lots of money, but I only try to tell the truth about what it has been like to be a newer player in the nerfing era. As they say, your mileage may vary :)

Competition is high at every level. Don't try to compare yourself with someone from another league. First learn how to beat your opponents from the league you are in and then move up. I discovered one of the best ways to learn is from opponents who are about the same level as you and who beat the crap out of you. See what strategies they use, what cards they level up / rent, etc.
