Little late to write this as the next season is already well underway, but was out of town over the weekend (to visit my newborn nephew :-)) when the Splinterlands season 49 ended. I still want to write the report to keep up with progress and for anyone who wants to check that out! All the stats will be the same anyway as it's automatically taken from the seasons data. Only thing that's slightly influenced by the late report is the peakmonsters value and total power in dec.
However, these changes are minor and are more to show the progress over time so I'm not too bothered by that.
For anyone who's seen my last 2 reports (or if you haven't I'll tell you now..) I didn't have much luck as of late: no legendaries, no gold foils, maybe an epic if that in the last seasons. Did my luck return yet? Let's jump in and find out!
|Rating||2343 - Gold III|
|Total Rating Movements (+-)||6617|
|Ranked Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||1.00 (154/153/1)|
|Tournament Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||0.27 (29/106/2)|
|Tournament Reward Placements||3/8|
|Highest Rated Win vs||@ritch (2927)|
Let's see, an exact 1.00 for ranked matches. It's like I planned it that way :-p Not unhappy considering I went up to gold again and actually got there sooner this time so managed to finish one of the daily quests there and also finished higher in rating and rank. Good stuff!
As for tournaments, I hardly play that anymore. Been short on time and on the go a lot, so playing on mobile forced me to focus on ranked matches and I think I like it that way.. Also, the fact that I now don't drop back to bronze means it's not really interesting to join the beginner tournaments but I also don't have the card sets to be competitive in higher league tournaments. So I guess I'll leave it at ranked matches for now and maybe pick a few interesting tournaments and really put some effort into those. Hate missing out on getting to compete in the spring training tournaments as I do like these a lot with all the nft's you can get there. Hopefully after the coming weekend I can find some time for that again!
Top 10 Summoner Usage
|Summoner||Frequency||Teams Fielded||Win Rate|
|Drake of Arnak||37||12.37%||35.14%|
Malric fan much? It's an insane amount I use that guy. Rented a gold version so it helped boosting dec rewards a lot! Not sure if I'm now using him because I rented that one or because I already played it a lot.. Looking back at last season he was in third spot so bit of a switch there!
Top 100 Monster Usage
|Monster||Frequency||Teams Fielded||Win Rate|
|Warrior of Peace||5||1.67%||60.00%|
|Serpent of Eld||3||1.00%||33.33%|
|Child of the Forest||2||0.67%||100.00%|
Chicken as usual and (of course) all the melee fire monsters that are able to attacking out of first position. Gonna have to watch out I don't become a one-trick pony! Still would love to see a dropdown here or a shorter list, it's a screen clogger right now.
Win Rate by Ruleset
|Rise of the Commons||18||61.11%|
|Keep Your Distance||16||37.50%|
|Odd Ones Out||13||23.08%|
|Fog of War||12||66.67%|
|Back to Basics||10||30.00%|
|Up Close & Personal||10||40.00%|
Noxious fumes rate is very good, packing healing monsters and defending them with some tanks is great here. Still lacking in some other rulesets. I'm thinking ordering these by win rate instead of frequency might be more insightful to see what needs work.
Since I'm now not falling to bronze at end of season standard ruleset has become very rare for me.
|Batter Up - Spring Train Silver (w/NFT GIVEAWAYS)||Silver||Open||69/86||0.29 (2/6/1)||3 DEC|
|UNTAMED KOBOLD MINING EXPEDITION||Novice||U||35/166||1.10 (11/10/0)||50 DEC|
|Batter Up - Spring Train Bronze (w/NFT GIVEAWAYS)||Bronze||RUD||53/100||0.80 (4/5/0)||3 DEC|
Just 3 in the money, as I explained was on the go a lot and didn't find much time for tournaments. A sad 56 dec, hope the ranked and chest rewards made up for that!

Ahh look at that, much better this time. 3 epics and a gold foil! That totals more than triple the dec worth from last season. Guess my luck has somewhat returned, still waiting for the first legendary drop. Be patient young padawaaaaaan..
Got a bit less luck with the dec rewards in chests, many potions this season but the ranked dec earnings went up by a lot (more than double). In total this also more than doubled the total ranked earnings in dec value. Gonna aim to break 5k in the next one!
Deck improvement since last season:
Peakmonsters value+power: $ 28.53 using Market Prices // 7,230 DEC
Last season: $ 21.32 using Market Prices // 5,320 DEC
Both value and power in dec increased significantly, this is what it's about to me. Making that progress visible so I'm amped to get back in there and make it even better next time.
So even though I played very few tournaments I've put a lot more time (and effort I guess) into the ranked play and it paid off. As I'm writing this I'm already back in silver I (barely, might still drop to II) while last season I was struggling in silver III for some time. Something I did do was renting many cards I feel I'll use a lot for 180 days, this makes the rentals easier to manage and helps me stay at a good power level and gives me time to build my "owned" power up to a higher level. I do think gold III is where I'll end up the coming seasons as renting even more is gonna be costly (for now). This does allow me to get more experience there and in Silver and will help me slowly build up to higher Gold leagues.
Hope you enjoyed the season and my report, what's your strategy to progress through the splinterlands? Let me know in the comments and we can discuss.
Till next time!
