# One step at a time, but always forward! - Splinter Stats Season 50 Report Card

in #splinterstats2 months ago


After being out of luck for some time I feel like I'm starting to recover from that. This season playing Splinterlands also started to feel like a habit, doing the daily quests, even when busy, not many tournaments but just enjoying it when the time is there.

Even though work and private life got much busier (end of covid restrictions are near, yay \o/) doing just the occasional battle and taking a bit of time at the start or end of the day to finish the quest is really pretty manageable and enjoyable. How that worked out for my gains? Let's find out, maybe it felt better than it actually is like the other way around from last seasons, where I actually made steady progress albeit it feeling slow.

Here we go:

Highest Rated Win vs@shinoxl (2724)

Ahhh a 1.30 ranked ratio. That's pretty sweet. No tournaments at all I see. This is because I've been playing mostly on mobile and to be honest, that suits me really well. After a long day just doing a few battles on my phone is much more relaxed than crawling behind the computer yet again.

Rating and rank in Gold were also way better. Too bad I don't have the power for Gold II league yet. Decided to try and finish in gold I for the foreseeable future. I'd have to rent a whole lot of cards to get to 150k+ power. So my strategy is to build my own set from here while staying above 100k power by renting. My approach is to now rent for the max of 180 days so I don't have to keep renewing my contracts. I figured it's pretty time-consuming at the moment and like I said. Less time behind my pc is a huge plus right for me personally at the moment.

After seeing reports from @legendarycanary I decided to try and rent from him whenever the card I wanted was available. As his account is dedicated to renting out, I have less worry the contract will be broken halfway through (hate it when I find out just after starting a battle) and the terms are always good so I don't have to double check those. In other words: more time saved :-)

Malric still int he top spot but Lyanna and Tyrus are gaining ground, I expect Lyanna to take the top spot next season as I rented a lvl 4 this time. Either way both of them have a 60%+ win rate so great to see that and will use both a lot.

Many fire cards again of course, but notice the win rate on flesh golem and wood nymph? Those will probably take 1st spot next time, using them a lot these days. Still have to find my playstyle in Gold league but so far this has worked out pretty well.

Further down the list we also see some really high percentage win rates but these cards don't find every mana pool/ruleset. Flesh golem and wood nymph are relatively cheap and as long as heal works they're really valuable.

Earthquake and keep your distance are terrible and I think I know why. I always try to make my cards fit the rules but make the mistake of forgetting team synergies and come up with a random bunch in the end. So for earthquake, this means I just pick random birdies (mostly use Life splinter here) and for close range I try using war chaang and get two attacks out of him while he's actually not the best tank. Bad habits I guess, something to work on!

And now we'll find out, did the perceived return of luck actually make a difference in the progress I made this season?

Damn right it did! More than double the total reward (measured in dec) of last season for a total of 10k+ :-)

Things that stood out:

  • 1 epic
  • 2 gold foil \o/
  • 2 packs

Also got way more dec from ranked matches even though I played only slightly more. Main reason is the early progression to gold league I think. Will try and get more time in gold each season to further increase these dec gains.

Collection progress since last season:

Peakmonsters value+power progression (Reversed chronological order):

$ 34.60 using Market Prices // 9,100 DEC

$ 28.53 using Market Prices // 7,230 DEC

$ 21.32 using Market Prices // 5,320 DEC

Fun little experiment, I think I'll keep adding to this list to really see the progress of the collection over many seasons. Right now it looks like I add roughly 2k power and $6-7 per season. Gonna be exciting to see if I can keep that pace going!

Really stoked to see some better progress even though I'm shorter on time. I think my new renting strategy and consistency with the quests are key here. As long as you keep hitting some gold and epic cards along the way the collection will grow over time.

What's your best tip for progress? let me know in the comments, would love to see your strategies! That's it for today, thanks for reading and have a good one

I'm often surprised how many renters end up break contracts a couple days after starting. I don't believe I have every broken a contract, except the one I made with myself 🤔

Thanks for renting my Sea Monster 👌

Yeah, it's kinda silly huh. I don't think I have either but also have more experience renting than renting out atm.. if I want to combine I just take it of the list after the contract.

No problem, thanks for providing it. Am making good progress with all the rentals :-)

awesome! i think i have broken about six contracts ever. and only when i wanted to combine bcx.

at a 1.3 win ratio there is definitely opportunity for more efficiency. e.g., if you focused only on two or three optimized silver-level splinters, you would stomp most silver players, and still be able to play about half your daily quests on average.

Thanks for your reply! And 6 only.. that's great to hear, I'm curious how the new rental system will influence the whole thing. There's definitely room for improvement. For example just being able to click on a completed contract to go to the specific card for renewal or a simple renewal or extending option. Hope something like that gets added.

Care to elaborate on that last bit? Was pretty happy to be well above 1 ratio. Am using 2-3 splinters mostly at the moment. Do you mean I should try and stay in silver to make the top ranking? An thus give up on some quest rewards but get good end of season returns? Am kind of in doubt on that. As right now making it to gold does increase per battle dec/daily quest/season rewards quite a bit. Making it in the ranking is not a given..

Any tips on what cards/decks to rent for doing that approach in silver are welcome, still learning every day :-)

Posted via proofofbrain.io

put it this way - when i actually play the game, i don't bother playing very much until the competition thins out later in the season and my win ratio is about 2.0

leaderboards are a grind and out of reach since youre on a budget.

but for cost efficiency you could build 2 silver-league-optimized splinters for daily rewards, plus 1 mid-tier gold-league splinter to push you quickly into gold II towards the end of the season.

you could rent a GFL for a day to get the collection power you need and break the contract afterwards (cooldown doesn't matter, since the extra rewards should be worth more than the cost to rent the GFL. the cheapest i saw was 3c/day on a scale doctor). if you shop around, you'll see alot of people still dont put in escrow so its their loss

if you then rent a dragon summoner on the cheap, that gives you the ability to play 4/6 daily splinter-themed quests (plus snipe, sneak & no-neutrals) in silver I most of the time, then quickly push for gold II for season rewards

no particular card tips for silver since i dont play silver. but just remember gold promos have the same dec bonus as gold alphas. a lot of people seem to forget that.

Wow thanks, that helps a lot! Actually did something similar my first season but then liked renting so much for various reason I just went with longer contracts and cards I actually play often. Renting 50k power for 3 cent at end of season is a steal indeed.

Gonna play around with this
