Current Development Work
  • New reward cards have been officially released in the game!
    • New reward cards have half the collection power as Untamed
    • Check the full list of reward cards here: SplinterStats!
  • Next priority is updating the UI with the season end reward changes
    • Pending rewards should reflect the current rank you are in, not highest achieved

Splinterlands Roadmap
  • Roadmap is still unannounced as scaling priorities are pushing everything back
  • The dev team seems to have scaling under control for now
    • Should allow Chaos Legion & Modern/Wild format to resume development

Maverick Status
  • Still considering raising the Maverick status requirement to 1000 Chaos Legion purchased packs
    • Has to be packs purchased from in-game, not from other players or markets
  • Considering opening up Maverick status to other assets like land and SPS
    • Not a priority until land is released though

Modern & Wild Format
  • Designing stage has begun, but not much progress due to scaling issues

Land
  • The art and visuals are the vast majority of work right now
    • Programming in game is less time consuming than the designing
  • Land will be rentable just like cards
  • There should be an incentive to own more powerful cards to work on lands
    • A Gold Foil Legendary card will maximize production on any land
    • The higher the card level is, the more it will boost production
    • Any monster working on land cannot be used in battles
  • Castles and Keeps will boost the production of all the land
    • Keeps will boost the production of the whole tract!
    • Castles will boost the production of the whole region!
    • The higher the levels of the castle/keep, the higher the production may be
    • Community contributions may be allowed to incentivize the owner to upgrade castle/keep levels
    • Owners of the castles/keeps may receive a cut of the resource liquidity pools

Tournaments
  • No intentions in bringing all the DEC tournaments back
  • Focusing on SPS only as they offer higher payouts

DEC
  • DEC will remain the backbone of the game and market
  • May include more DEC sinks in the near-future, but nothing official until announced
  • SPS is the main focus though right now

Exchange Listings
  • Team is always looking to be listed on more exchanges
    • But, they won't bend over backward just to get listed
    • They also won't pay an unreasonable amount on a listing either
    • Terms have to be mutually beneficial

Community Paid Roles
  • Aggroed's vision is to have "employees to the DAO"
    • Community would assign roles to other community members
      • Examples: Streamers, Influencers, Support Members, etc...
    • Certain amount of funds would be put in the DAO
    • Depending on the roles, the assigned members would get paid from the DAO
  • All this is speculative and TBD though

SPS Staking - Vouchers
  • The team wants to incentivize players to stake for long periods of time
    • Not just stake for Chaos Legion pre-sale vouchers, then un-stake when pre-sale ends
  • Team may give out vouchers even beyond Chaos Legion pre-sale to those who continue to stake
    • Vouchers would act as a staked days counter
    • The longer you stake, the more potential future rewards
  • Just more earnings/rewards for those who stake for a longer duration than those who don't

Interesting Remarks From Aggroed

  1. Aggroed is currently working on some big contracts!

    • If contracts go through, he said they would impact the entire game
    • Aggroed is super excited, so that means we should be super excited
    • Aggroed is entering conversations with billionaires now that are being exposed to the game
    • Nothing is guaranteed though as terms need to benefit both parties and the Splinterlands community

  2. Team has a current lead on a VP of Engineering

    • If hired, can delegate a bunch of responsibilities to this new hire from Matt's plate
    • Would free up Matt to work on future game functionality

  3. Team is always designing new game features with new players in mind

    • Team is trying to please everyone
    • Still trying to keep new players through releasing inexpensive card packs

  4. Nothing is final until the whitepaper is released

    • This is more in regards to how Chaos Legion and Lands will work/function
    • Even information in these AMA's aren't official
    • Once whitepaper is released, then there is no going back

Greatly appreciate it! Hopefully Aggroed will fix the payouts soon on Splintertalk. He mentioned it should be working now though, so hopefully that is true!

Thanks dude! Super appreciate you sharing all of this.

I'm obviously excited about land... but I'm also dreading having to decide which cards will work my land for me. I've really only leveled up the ones I use all the time.

I know, it is super nice to hear about land every now and then!

I think they will give us plenty of details on how the monster workers will work, but just more of a reason to stock up on Chaos Legion and summoners!

Thanks for taking the time, mate. He gave us an hour's notice just as I climbed into bed, so this was a nice treat to wake up to. Appreciate it.

brybro27 you're the man. Love the updates!

I am so excited for the land to come out. I have been stocking up on legendaries for this reason.
That and the rental income is nice.

Thanks for this summary, and for the recording also. Without it I would missed a lot of good new informations.
Can't wait for CL and LAnds. :)))
