Splinterlands Share Your Battle Challenge and Brawl Report
Splinterlands — Changing up my Brawl Reports a bit
🐲 Brawl Report 🐲
I'm super excited about SPS rewards being added to the next Brawl cycle. With new changes I felt it was a good opportunity to change up my Brawl reports. I've always wanted my reports to be a study guide for myself, and anyone else who cares to learn from an average player. I think the information has always been there, but I want it to shine more so it is easier to pick out and digest the learnings.
With this idea in mind I'm going to pick one battle each Brawl and dig more deeply into the particular strategy that won or lost the battle for me. Most of the shares will probably be losses as we learn best from our failures. But I'm sure I'll come across some fun wins that I will want to share as well.
I'll still make sure to give a full recap of my overall performance and The Calzones results, but I hope the focus on one battle will make it easier to learn from.
Learnings — It's not the highest level, it's the strategy!
|Thaddius v Thaddius — This is a perfect example of a battle I need to study. I had my opponent outclassed with a higher level summoner and still managed to get crushed.|
What a great battle to kick off my new format than a battle in which I had the higher level summoner and lost. It's frustrating to look at the opponents layout and see that I had the higher level summoner and owned the same cards played, some at higher levels and still lost. This is the perfect opportunity to step back and learn from the battle to determine how I can be better.
Some background on the options available. This was a Silver level Chaos
only battle. The mana cap was 60, which was a non factor with the Little League ruleset. The other ruleset was Knockout and the Dragon and Life splinters were not an option. Revealer is my only Little League card with Stun that could take advantage of the Knockout ruleset, but that card was not an option for Chaos only fights.
One look at the pre-battle chart and it is easy to see my error, I didn't put enough health on the battlefield. I had the advantage in attack damage, but it doesn't matter if my team can't stay around long enough to deal the damage. I had Life Sapper with Life Leech to help, but my opponent had the same card and also had Xenith Monk with Heal and Spirit Hoarder with Triage. Further study shows my team had a 0% chance of victory 🤦♂ Clearly I need to go back to the drawing board and rethink some of my choices.
Why did I make some of these choices
Hindsight is 20/20, but before knowing my opponents choices I did have some strategy in what turned out to be poor choices.
😒😒 2—3. Not my best Brawling, but as @chefbgob told me, it's a team effort, some days we help pull the team up and others the team helps pull us up 😒😒
I hope the new format was helpful and that you learned something as I did. I'm looking forward to digging deeper into battles to see what learning can be found.

🍕🍕🍕 What is PIZZA? 🍕🍕🍕
As with most activities connected to Hive, and the crypto world in general, I discovered PIZZA because of Splinterlands. Also like most Hive connected activities I discovered a world of possibilities beyond what I expected. So what exactly is PIZZA?
1️⃣ PIZZA is a trade-able token that can be staked for rewards and tipping, used to purchase games or traded for other tokens.
2️⃣ PIZZA is also an active Discord community for gamers and creatives. (I personally frequent the foodies-lounge, splinterlands and rising-star channels)
