Let's Make Darth Squirrel A Playable Character (And Get Yourself Some Discounted Packs!)

It's time to turn Darth Squirrel into a playable Splinterlands summoner! According to the Chaos Legion whitepaper, "the top 6 accounts with the most Chaos Legion packs purchased during the presale will be able to work with the Splinterlands team to design their own Legendary Summoner card which will be added into the Chaos Legion set as one of the 13 airdrops to be released over the life of the set."

I personally will not be able to provide enough of my own funds to be one of the top 6 accounts. So I'm creating the Darth Squirrel Chaos Pool! I will be working with all of you to pool together our resources to help get Darth Squirrel into the game!

By participating in the pool, you will get access to cheaper packs! Since I will be purchasing packs with SPS in batches of more than 2,000 at a time, the cost of a pack will only be $3 instead of $4, and you will only need 0.84 vouchers (or the funds to cover the voucher)! You will also retain all rights to GUARANTEED airdrops. This means you will receive 1 copy of each airdropped promo card for every 50 packs purchased, with 1 of those being a gold foil copy for every 1000 packs. Keep in mind that this will apply to all airdropped chaos cards, but future airdropped requirements are not known yet. The threshold for guaranteed drops typically increases for each airdrop.

To participate in the pool, all you have to do is send SPS or other funds to "darthsquirrel" in game. Message me to let me know you are sending the funds. My preferred method of contact is via Discord (Bulldog1205#3050). There is a minimum contribution of $50 ($100 if using fiat). Payment options outside of the game can be accepted.

Funds will be stored as SPS, so the value of your contribution is subject to changes in the market, and could go up or down by the time packs are actually purchased. The SPS will be staked initially. It will be unstaked approximately 4 weeks and 3 days before the end of the presale in order to maximize the amount of vouchers received while still making the SPS funds available to actually purchase packs.

As a fee for all the time and effort that will go into managing this pool, I will be keeping all the SPS staking rewards that are generated (not including the voucher rewards, which will go into the pool) and all of the partial airdrops. For example, if someone buys 75 packs, it could possibly generate more than 1 airdropped promo card, but they will only receive the 1 guaranteed airdrop. This also means that anyone who buys less than 50 packs will not receive airdrop rewards. Overall, the value I will be keeping will add up to only a very small percentage of the overall pool, and anyone who isn't planning on purchasing more than 2000 packs will still save money by using the pool to take advantage of the bulk purchasing discount.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions regarding the pool. Let's go get Darth Squirrel into the game!

Dude, I enjoy your content, but I don't think this math really adds up...

The cost of purchasing 2000 packs will be $8000USD.
30% (20% bonus packs, 10% cheaper with SPS) of $8000 is $2400... but you're selling the $4 packs for $3 so that's 25% which is $2000.

You'd be making an extra $400 per 2000 packs plus you'd keep any additional promo cards you receive (outside of the guaranteed), the staking rewards, the glory of your character being made into a card and you'd have an absolutely massive chance of receiving bonus copies of the 14 airdropped cards.

Are you buying the required vouchers or would you expect the donors to purchase the vouchers for you?

You are doing the math wrong. It's not a 30% discount. It's a 10% discount and 20% bonus packs. So if you buy 2000 packs you get 400 extra packs and it costs $7200. $7200/2400 packs = $3 per pack.

The vouchers will be supplied by the buyers or purchased using currency provided by the buyers. This is intended to be net neutral for me in terms of pack costs. Yes, I will get some extra promo cards, but it won't be worth near the time and effort that will go into organizing this and distributing all these packs and airdropped cards. And for buyers, the 20% savings will be worth way more than the chance at an airdropped card.

This is me going all out in order to try and get Darth Squirrel into the game. It's going to be an absolute headache, but I still want to do it. Just answering questions alone is going to eat hours of my time.

Make a Darth Squirrel / Chicken Kill wax nft for every donation you get a NFT which entitles you to a certian number of packs. That would make keeping the paper work easy and provable on the blockchain online. Just a thought - I'm in either way you choose.

DEFINITELY , a big pass !! I'd rather have my own staking rewards & try to get more than 1 summoner ( must be worth $100+) for 50 packs than just setting with 1

ATTENTION PLAYERS. THIS IS NOT A POOL! THIS IS A PLAYER ACCOUNT. YOU ARE SURRENDERING FULL CONTROL OF YOUR SPS. Players aren't actually contributing to a pool and merely contributing to a player account in this post. All of you contributing are forfeiting your assets to bulldog (the owner of the account keys). This "pool" doesn't allow players the option to WITHDRAW, they forfeit ownership of their assets and their personal entitlement to airdrops (SPS gives ANY player airdrops from packs from now until eternity. In the future there will be other card presales, there won't be more SPS Airdrops). Vouchers are tokenized so all you players can ACCUMULATE to your own prepurchased pack (even if you don't have enough to get a whole voucher per day). YOU CANNOT WITHDRAW YOUR ASSETS FROM THIS "POOL" LIKE AN OFFICIAL POOL, THE ACCOUNT KEY HOLDER OWNS IT ALL. This post is not accurately describing to players what they are getting into or what they are giving away. THIS IS NOT A POOL THIS IS SENDING SPS TO A PLAYER ACCOUNT, THIS IS NOT SPS DELEGATION - THIS IS MERELY SENDING SPS FROM ONE ACCOUNT TO ANOTHER. If you wish to create a rewards pool, merely go on tribaldex and create your own official pool. If you guys need more on the reasons why this "pool" is HIGHLY NOT advisable check out the post located here. To make an OFFICIAL pool that offers WITHDRAWAL on tribaldex click here. And remember the unspoken rule of ALL crypto "Not your account, not your keys, NOT YOUR CRYPTO." Stay safe battlemages. CryptoniusRex - Captain of the Guard
