SplinterLands. Learning to play!

Capture.PNG

My First Splinterlands battles.

I played about twenty games for the first time ever.
My first game was a disaster because I had no clew on how to play.

The next ten were all about figuring thing out and rereading what little instructions
I could find.
Then I won a game but it must have been a flook because I didn't understand why I won.
After that I started understanding the strategy of the game a little.

I am still a novice but that is better than not playing at all.

I started out collecting cards before I played the game. I bought 10 decks and have opened 6 of them so far.
It Looks like a cool game so far.
I can see how someone could get addicted to it.

It seemed like a good idea to know how the game is played if I am going to invest in the cards. NFT's like these cards are an excellent use case for crypto's.
I will be looking into music and art NFT's also.
I have been following some of the members in hive and am learning a lot.
Thanks Everyone.
Tips and tricks are welcome in the comments!

Splinterlands isn't one of those games you can learn in a day. I have been playing for months now and still have a lot to learn. There is a lot of strategy in this game and when you really start to see it makes it a little more fun.

Yes there is a learning curve, but it peaked my interest.
There are plenty of people to learn from on this platform for sure. I was having fun .

I still have not played it yet but it is on my to-do list. My impression of this game is that it is very complex, so I guess I am not surprised you didn't know why you won that game. Thanks for the post.

Mostly the game is about strategies for using the cards. The thing I noticed is that you need to learn how the cards work and play together. I think I will get it.

Hi @rcaine - It's true that there are a lot of complexities, most of which I don't know about. But it's easy to just start playing. As I mentioned in my comment to Tom, I began by randomly clicking on cards and seeing how the fights went. They always went badly, but the process helped me to become familiar with the basics.

Good luck!

Nice, Tom. I have played a few practice rounds and have not done well. I agree that you need to know more about the different cards in order to build a strategy.

Welcome to the addiction!

Once you start really learning how to play it becomes an obsession lol

Thanks for sharing this on ListNerds!

Ha ha, that is more less how I started, @alente - I just started playing with no clue about what I was doing. I was just a freebie player, with no card purchases. I just randomly clicked on some cards and lost a whole string of games, but gradually got the hang of the basics of arraying the cards. Still haven't bought a pack or the spell book!

One tip - if you hang out with some of the players in our network on Twitch you may pick up some free gift cards from them... :)

Good luck!

Sometimes you just have to dive in and figure things out as you go. That is Splinter Lands for me

Welcome to the party. I think regardless of level you will get beat 50% of the time on average. Bots at the lower levels make it difficult to win. With the base cards there are only 3 or 4 combinations which can win at each rule set.

That is good to know. The strategies seem to be how you combine your cards

It's hard to get started but I would probably start off with trying to figure out which tanks are good for you. Then I suggest mixing and matching monsters that can attack from the back positions (sneak, opportunity, ranged or magic). I find that is the best way to learn and then you can mix in other cards as you see fit.
