Gold cards airdrop, Splinterlands tutorial, & Share your battle challenge

2_times_gold.png

A blockchain game to which I feel as though I owe a great deal of gratitude Splinterlands, which has brought many new faces to hive & given blockchain gamers a flag to rally around. Weather your an old school pro literally made into a millionaire from this game, or a more casual player like myself who is just thankful for the opportunity the game affords us.

I always airdrop NFTs in posts and this one is no different, todays airdrop however has a few Gold Splinterlands NFTs.

Splinterlands has a great deal to offer, but how do we the players make the most of this game. Of course doing the daily challenge and receiving your rewards is no doubt a highlight for most. There is in fact much more that we can do for the game and the game can do for us.

In todays write up ill explore strictly Splinterlands, is social media challenges and blog. Not to mention some tricks I have noticed that can help the average player make the most of this sensational block chain game.

Splinter talk

https://splintertalk.io/
Splinter talk & its native HIVE based token Splinter Talk Token is a wealth of both Splinterlands fandom & information. Not only that but there weekly challenges for players such as the social media challenge.

The share your battle challenge
https://www.splintertalk.io/@splinterlands/share-your-battle-weekly-challenge-wave-runner
Though not my cup of tea the more artistic among us can take part in the art contests.
https://www.splintertalk.io/@splinterlands/splinterlands-art-contest-week-155-10-booster-pack-prize
With those kind of prizes it makes me regret sleeping through art class.

As if they needed to improve upon perfection the SPT token has been seeing a few new uses as of late. Including usage in the SPS airdrop
image.png
As well as the new Splinter Talk NFT market

https://www.splintertalk.io/nfts/

So drop by complete a challenge and show your support through an NFT purchases on Splinter talk.
https://splintertalk.io/

image.png
Once your awash in SPT you can then stake it, As well as delegate the staked SPT to curation services. Doing so allows for the delegated part to utilize the upvote afforded by the SPT staking.

When doing so through an appropriate delegation service my favorite being.
https://peakd.com/@monster-curator
image.png
Generates you an awarded share of SPT for your efforts, keep in mind this is through strictly curation services here on Hive, delegating to a random account does not necessarily generate a reward.

The share your battle challenge is a personal favorite and I may just give an example further on in this write up.

SPS tips & tricks

We all have that airdrop on the brain when considering what to do when playing Splinterlands. While not bad for the meantime in terms of monetary worth there are several aspects of SPS that have yet to be implemented.

The majority of us now are reveling in the airdrop distribution for an entire year & the money that can be earned in SPS resale.
better_cartmen.gif

Now what if I where to tell you this is just the beginning of what SPS has to offer. Most would say no duh, the Airdrop by nature is a distribution mechanism.

Yeah many may already be aware of this, but distribution to what end what is it they plan to do with SPS Splintershards?

  • My most important tip would be save your SPS, for a number of reasons.
  • Second tip is the SPS liquidity pools Specifically the Tribal Dex diesel pools, this will when done correctly double your SPS airdrop points.
    https://tribaldex.com/dieselpools/pools
    image.png
    image.png
    Also serving as a way to save my SPS up or future usage while simultaneously feeing up some of my other resources.
  • The future usage of SPS may include in game Governance for staking, Rewards specifically for those staking SPS, & much more.
    https://sps.splinterlands.com/offers
    https://sps.splinterlands.com/in-game-governance
  • account power is a contributing factor to the SPS Airdrop, what you may not know is the Gladius cases & brawl only cards contribute to account power.
    image.png
    A player must have joined a guild with the proper upgrades necessary to purchase the Gladius case with merits earned in brawl participation.
    image.png
    Merits being generated for each opponent vanquished in brawls the Gladius case Cards would be quite helpful in this task.

Splinterlands NFT markets

For the players that well for the lack of a better description dont wish to play the game. There are a few reasons you will want to be aware of the Splinterlands NFT market.

  • Rentals
    Rentals being the more impressive aspects of the Splinterlands NFT market. In essence this can be used to effectively profit on others playing the game.
    image.png
    Though originally offered by secondary markets such as
    https://peakmonsters.com/
    However the Rental market has been drastically improved by introducing it in game. Showing players that big bad power up is a small daily expense away.
    Individuals not needing to focus on account power are thus at an advantage making Rentals the primary focus of their colection. generating daily revenue which can be utilized to further their rental selection.
  • Secondary markets
    Though some wht limited at the moment the secondary markets are primarily just WAX & in game. When talking packs and land plots you can also include Hive Engine, but for cards we have Peaked monsters, The in game market, & WAX.
    Though this may not seem like much when it comes to the WAX and HIVE Markets the difference can be staggering.
    image.png
    The prices are set by your fellow users so this can make odd discrepancies in price.
    image.png
    You have to account for the % taken out of the sale price by either market WAX being higher then the Splinterlands market.
    A person can actually make a descent revenue in observing either market & supplying the one with a higher price.
  • SPT limited minting's
    Earlier in the write up I highlighted the collectable NFTs available on the Splinter talk NFT market. This Is an interesting concept but since they have limited minting's and users can buy & sell them effectively just buying them before they sell out could be profitable.
    I have yet to test this but what I see on the market fairs out this judgement.
    image.png

Game credits

Here's a Splinterlands deep cut for you have you ever heard of game credits?
image.png
Though not something I would recommend as it takes ETH to get GAME but users can support the favorite blockchain game or service listed utilizing GAME.
image.png
Notice I have not put in my support as the GAS fees are to much to be honest.

Just thought I would point out there is sill a Splinterlands support page on Game credits.
https://app.gamecredits.org/rewards/creator/18
image.png
I even have one of these from forever ago the NFT market once the GAME has been deposited lacks gas fees so it is not as bad.
image.png
What I can say is game credits has some interesting features, & assuming their posts on twitter are to be believed will be switching to BSC.
https://app.gamecredits.org/

Game strategy

Not usually the topic I delve into but I do have some pointers for anyone new to Splinterlands.

  • Summoners
    image.png
    Lets begin with the Summoner You see the image above has the level limit associated with each rarity of monsters your summoner uses.
    image.png
    The level limit will determine at which level your leveled up card is capped. See with that summoner and this card though level 4 would be capped at level 3.
    image.png
    So 1 less health then the level 4 stats, & in addition to setting the level of card + element type of the cards summoned. Your summoner can have special abilities.
    image.png
    As well as costing a set amount of mana
    image.png
    A colection with both a good diversity in choice and leveled up summoners is ideal. Though not really a good market for this now in the future this may change with new packs.
  • Card information
    image.png
    Focusing on the Type of attack you have Melee, Ranged, & Magic.
    image.png
    Magic is my preferred damage type if at all possible, other stats
    image.png
    image.png
    https://splinterlands.com/?p=gameplay

Basics

Now with the basics down My build focuses on Defense and speed. Basically what I can tell you is its different for each person but the Magic attack's to me seem best.

Abilities & match rules play more important of a role then anything else.

By build I'm speaking of course about your accounts cards, The temporary cards given to you when you join are ok but will only let you participate at bronze.
image.png

So 1st thing is first you will need to get as many different cards you can luckily the new reward cards are getting their prices driven surprisingly low.

This is new players opportunity to get a decent build for cheap, I theorize this was their intention behind lowering their burn value.
image.png
image.png

Also this promotes the usage of their guild brawls system, making those cards a similar burn value to the last gen cards.
image.png
Burn value attributes to your account power which determines both SPS airdrop & the max league that your account can progress to in a season.
image.png
Your rank that season also being a contributing factor.

Back to producing a good build besides the economic factor to doing so once you have enough cards to be able to start making decisions like this the Mana cap and rules that round are really what matters.

For example if I where using a starter deck cards mostly I would focus on regeneration. Outside regeneration making as many hits as possible land per round.
image.png
The card above should be part of the card given to a new account it possesses a regeneration ability.
image.png
As does this one and
image.png
Utilizing one of these in your primary position followed by anything that can attack from the second position.
image.png

Ranged attackers can not attack in first position So I try not to make a card with a ranged attack type the last in line. Opting instead to utilize Magic
image.png
Unless other factors such as match rules or skills affects it Ranged can not attack from the fist slot & Mele can not attack from any slot but the first.
image.png
Exceptions to this are either match rules or abilities, some of the more commonly utilized skills are sneak.
image.png
Opportunity
image.png
Reach
image.png
& for ranged attacking in any position Close range
image.png
Outside of utilizing special skills the Magic attacks are the only ones that can be used from any position dont miss & hit health directly. Because of this they are usually weaker in their attack strength.

With this in mind the tips above & the tutorial Splinterlands gives you on site you more or less will be able to beat most any player in bronze.

Market Stats

If you go to most Market trackers like coin market cap for instance you wont get a market cap on DEC or SPS. For those type of stats due to the nature of these assets its best to check sources on HIVE.
https://peakmonsters.com/dashboard
Always a good bet to start at peakd monsters which can give both your recent stats & Splinterlands as a whole.
image.png
See here you get a market cap for both DEC & SPS
image.png
Token prices
image.png
To me someone that primarily focuses on NFTs & blockchain games those two measurements above as well as a P2P market sale volume are the most important.
image.png
The P2P market sale volume determines popularity compounded with the number of battles and daily transactions you can determine the overall health of the market.
image.png
Number of active players is also a curtail factor from these you can extrapolate the average players likely hood of not only playing but also buying on the secondary market.

So with the average of 176,000 daily players and the total amount of money spent per day on average with the number of cards sold on average you can determine.
am_dd_why_is_thiking_so_hard.gif

That the average sale is a low value asset not the higher end of the spectrum that being said several hundred thousand dollars are spent on the P2P market on an average day lately. Meaning there is room for larger sales although with the new cards this uptick is understandable.

What you want is this exactly when the low end of the NFT cost spectrum gets ignored the price will stagnate then crash.
pepe_silvia.gif

Splinterlands has a Blend burn use case that facilitates the need for these cheap cards in high volume.

Consistency in the peer to peer market + the overall sales &
number of users basically determines the level of risk that NFT colection represents for me.
image.png
Sales on Splinterlands NFTs have hit $50,000 USD a piece on WAX putting them in a group of only 5 NFT collections to ever pass that price milestone.

Colonize Mars, Alien Worlds, MLB, Splinterlands, & bitcoin origin these are the only NFT collections with an NFT selling for over $50,000 USD on WAX.
image.png
The MLB sale made headlines as it had broke the last world record for Base ball card resale. I think that Splinterlands is but 4 sales beneath that price is no less amazing.
image.png

One of the best aspects of Splinterlands is its transparency how the distribution mechanisms work, drop rates, & how potions function all easily located public knowledge.

Share your battle challenge Wave Runner

wave_runner_splinterlands.gif
For this battle I used
image.png
image.png
image.png
image.png
image.png

On a silver tier 2 league ranked match with the following rules
image.png
image.png
Who do you think will win? Because that new legendary for me presents a variable I haven't quite accounted for.
image.png
A few moves in Demented shark has taken a little damage & I have taken out their Cocatrice.
image.png
Now I have gotten 2 of their cards
image.png
Still have my whole team the opponent has 2 cards
image.png
image.png
They took out demented shark
image.png
Now their down to one card their legendary, & I have 3 still at full health.
image.png
Victory but by the skin of my teeth, see my Lobstradamus cant damage their legendary due to its void armor ability
image.png
So 2 hits and my team would not be able to inflict damage, I won because the opponent did not account for the match rule set. Had they played their cards in a slightly different order they would have won.
image.png
image.png
I capitalized on the sneak ability effecting my melee attack type by playing demented shark. Which boosts Melee type attack's by 1, playing wave runner as per the challenges requirements.

Then of course playing a 3rd gold card really just because, with Lobstradamus a high Health magic monster at the rear of the formation.

Doing this absorbs the likely damage caused by the super sneak ruleset, The opponent did not do this putting their weaker units at risk.

image.png
Had they played their high health legendary in the last position they would have won.
image.png
I will be sharing my battle on Torum as well brief over view & a link to this post for further clarity.
