On the Fence
After the craziness that is the start of the season died down a bit I have been able to advance pretty steadily and I find myself bouncing in and out of the Diamond III tier and Gold I. There was a brief moment that I made it pretty close to Dimaond II, but I thought better of it and started losing some battles to get myself back down to Gold.
As the title states, with right around one day left in the season, I am totally on the fence about where I want to end up. These new focus points have really thrown my plans into chaos. Being honest, I haven't really seen any better rewards than I was getting before. Sure, I think I pulled a Gold Foil card yesterday and I have pulled one regular legendary, but beyond that, my rewards have been pretty similar to what they were in the past system.
Basically, pretty unimpressive.
Maybe it is because I am getting so few chest in each focus. I think the highest number of chests I have gotten so far in a daily quest was five. Typically, it has been closer to three or four.
After talking with some people, I really feel like I belong in the Gold tier based on the level of my cards (most specifically summoners). It makes me wonder if I am really playing "above my pay grade" in the Diamond league. I can make it in Diamond, but do I really belong there?
I will be the first to admit, I am pretty horrible at the strategy part of the game. Right when I think I have the perfect team created, I get totally decimated. I can just never seem to figure out the right cards to play during the right rulesets.
I feel like I need some kind of cheatsheat that says if the rules are x, you should play this splinter and these cards. I have at least one of pretty much all the cards, so it's not like my deck is incomplete (except for some summoners that I stupidly sold before the big pump).
That is beside the point though.
The real issue is this:
Do I finish this season in Diamond and take the chance of getting fewer diamond chests next season or finish this season in Gold and maybe have the opportunity to earn more gold chests next season?
It's a tough call. If I could be guarnateed that the prizes in those Dimamond chests were going to be better than the ones in the Gold chests then I might be tempted. I have a friend on Splinterlands that is getting better drops from his bronze chests than I am from my diamond ones. Of course, he is getting two to three times per chests per focus as I am.
That could definitely be a factor.
I've got about 24 hours to figure it out...
What are you plans. Are you still trying to advance as far as you can this season or are you playing the odds to maybe give yourself a better chance of earning rewards next season?
I am sitting at 46 season chests right now. My goal is to maybe get that number to 50 and then decide what I am going to do. I will hopefully have enough time to drop myself down if that is the way I end up falling.
What do you think?
