During surfing Internet and looking info about blockchain i found info about this game.
in former times i was close to top 300 players in Hearthstone, so i decide come and destroy everyone in Splinterlands . Play and earn, dreams come true

But .... whooops
Cant do nothing without spellbook
Okey, 10$ not much
Now i will complete daily questions and farm cards and coins

I make small deposit, but i cant buy card packs , they are "Sold out" , 1 rare card cost 4-5$ and give only 20 power. I need to collect 1000 power to start earning crumbs of DEC .
So now I'm not sure what to dive headlong in Splinterlands is what i want.
I like gameplay, animations, blockchain features, but strong pay-to-play component is repulsive
Im between to buy useless cards with great $/power rate, or buy really useful cards and forget about 1k power.
Even in hearthstone i was able to do 2-3 cheap decks and fight with strongest opponents, i understand so its not same, but i feel so i have no progress in Splinterlands during playing .

Greetings with any advice

P.S. English not my native, sorry for poor speech

Hello! I recommend you take a look at card rentals. It's not that expensive to get started that way, some cards you can rent for 0.1 DEC a day, others will be a bit more expensive if you go for epic or legendary, but still way cheaper than buying.
Try renting cheap cards for the duration of the season, so you have a good base deck, and you can rent epics and legendaries for a day or two, based on what daily missions you have. There's many startegies for this. Try getting enough power to climb after Bronze II league, and you'll start earning DEC with the battles, then you can pay next season rents with the earnings if your good enough. Once you get the grip of the game, you can decide which cards are worth buying.
Good Luck, if you still have doubts i join the discord server, many people will help you there with information!

Hello, @burning1337! This is @traciyork from the @ocd (Original Content Decentralized) curation team. We noticed you shared your first post here on Hive - congratulations and welcome! It would also be awesome if you could do an introduction post, so our community can get to know you better. For information on how to write an intro post, please check out the SELF INTRODUCTION section of the post 3 things Newbies should do in their first week on Hive.

Speaking of community, we have many different ones here on the blockchain, devoted to all kinds of interests. Here's a link so you can check them all out - Hive Communities . I see you already found Splinterlands, and you might be interested in the Hive Gaming Community as well.

Also, as Hive can sometimes be quite confusing, the newly launched Newbies Guide should be helpful to you, as it is a growing repository of useful and easy to understand posts about how the Hive ecosystem works.

Please be aware that Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog, so it is important not to include content that you don't own without sources (and it shouldn't exceed 50% of the post). For more information, check this post - Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise by hivewatchers.

Since you're new, you may run into an RC (Resource Credits) error when trying to comment/post because you don't yet have enough Hive in your account yet. For assistance with a temporary delegation to get you started, be sure to check out the Gift Giver site.

For now, @lovesniper will follow your account and we are looking forward to seeing your intro post. Also, please mention (also known as tagging) @traciyork & @lovesniper in your intro post in order for us to be notified, so we can consider your post for OCD curation.
