A BEGINER'S APPROACH TO SPLINTERLANDS
I wouldn't say it's been all fun playing splinterlands so far. When I started there were times when I thought I had gotten the hang of it and other times when I realized I didn't know what I was doing but I guess it's all part of the learning process. As with everything else, we never stop learning of course.
All in all, it's been quite a quite thrilling experience for me.
Here are some things I learned while playing that may be helpful to you.
I you're having a little trouble wrapping your head around the dynamics of the game you may find these few hints helpful...
FAMILIARIZE WITH THE GAME BY PLAYING AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN:
It could be intimidating at first but like everything else, you will get the hang of it soon enough. Just keep playing.
SOME THINGS TO TAKE NOTE OF WHEN ENTERING A BATTLE :
You should keep an eye out for some helpful tips that display on screen before the game starts. consider the circled portion of the image below...
This is very useful information that goes unnoticed by many newcomers. It gives you a chance to forecast the element you are likely to be facing in that battle. That way you can choose a more suitable summoner and deck to match your opponent.
Be dynamic :
The beginner tutorial given shows you how to use the pyre summoner with a basic card deck as a model. Feel free to try out different summoners and card combinations, you will learn a lot from experience.
Special abilities :
Some cards have special abilities which you can find out by placing your cursor over the icon(could be more) at the bottom of the card as shown below
Knowledge of these abilities helps you decide what position(on your deck) to place your cards in according to your strategy.
They may offer a boost to the cards in your deck and also have some cards specific to them.
This card will increase the magic powers of the home player's deck(your deck) by 1.
They may also influence the opponent's deck, this is the case when the sign attached to their ability below is negative and the figure attached indicates the magnitude in both cases.
For instance, this card will reduce the guard of all cards belonging to the opponent summoner by 2.
I've been able to max out the bronze league III without getting the spellbook which was my intention. You could try it out as an extension of your training if you like.
Later today I will be buying the summoner's spellbook which costs only $10 and we can take a look at what it holds.
With that said I hope you have found some useful information here for your gameplay.
Keep playing and learning, you'll get the hang of it. Also, don't be fazed by losses, learn from the experience.
Enjoy the game!!!
