Chaos Legion
  • Price point for the packs affect the entire game economy
    • Price to low, players could buy packs and burn the cards for DEC
  • Won't need vouchers for bonus packs
    • Buy 100 packs with 100 vouchers, you still receive 110 packs
  • Vouchers will be minimally traded on Hive Engine, will try to maybe get on PancakeSwap as well
  • Plan to keep using vouchers at end of pre-sale\
    • Vouchers are a measurement of your SPS Staked Days
  • There will be a 1% chance to earn a Chaos Legion pack in chest rewards
  • The limited-edition promo card may be a Legendary Death Summoner 👀

DEC:
  • Reward pool will double once Modern/Wild format is launched
  • Team doesn't control the DEC market price

SPS:
  • What happens to SPS when used to buy credits and Chaos Legion packs?

  • No burn mechanisms just yet, but Aggroed is a big fan of burning 🔥

Scaling & Dev Work:
  • Still absolute top priority
  • Onboarded top notch developers and team leaders, still hiring others
  • New Hire - Hardpoint
    • Vice President Of Engineering 🚀
    • Will work on streamlining, scaling, and managing everything in regards to the game
    • "Not about fighting fires, it is about building a great product"

Affiliate Program:
  • SPS purchases may account towards affiliate program - TBD

Land:

  • Very disappointed land expansion has been delayed so much
    • Scaling comes first though!
  • Content creation is still being worked on
  • Team is getting more and more ambitious every day with land

Bots:
  • Bots aren't going away
  • Will do everything the team can do with exploits in the economy with bots
    • Not done perfectly, will be fixed overtime
    • Team knows there shouldn't be an advantage with bots over players
  • Once Chaos Legion settles down, bots will be discussed more

Potential Backlog For Splinterlands Dev Team

Minor Tasks:
  • Add small icon to let players know they are in an active event that requires an action (Cryptomancer)¹
  • Add DEC pegged value in marketplace so players have an ideal how much DEC would be required to buy a card, or how much they will receive if selling a card¹
  • Add a new setting to allow players to change the sound volume¹
  • Fix Hive Engine packs not being displayed properly¹
  • Add functionality to automatically stake your max balance¹
  • Alphabetize the ability list in the dropdown¹
Bigger Tasks:
  • Output more accurate error messaging and possibly include resources to alleviate the issue¹

¹ = Carried Over From Previous AMA's

Very nice summary, thanks for taking the time to do so. I totally didn't realize that the bought packs during the pre-sale will also count in points for the airdrop, realized that reading this post :)

Rather than running continuously, its better to sit down and rest for a while, maybe more feeling, then better design, these are my thoughts as a loyal player
