Chaos Legion Here I Come

Screenshot of Splinterlands  Collect, Trade, Battle! 66.jpg

A few days after Chaos legion cards started showing up in battles I had to stop playing because I was overwhelmed with 16 hour days at work.

Basically, supplies I've been waiting for since August that have been stuck in the supply chain started arriving. (I needed them by Thanksgiving so basically killed my whole business for a year). But today is my first day that I can actually play.

And, today is the day I am reminded that I managed to lose every battle in chaos during the first few days. In fact, Im remembering how much I hate the change and how turned off I am by the game.

I'm a creature of habit and built my Bronze battle lineups over time and I had some success. The thought of going through that R&D phase again turns my stomach. It's kind of like when you write a paper on your computer and forget to save it. The thought of starting from scratch is devastating. And right now that's how I feel about playing Splinterlands.

But, I'm going to give it a shot. Hopefully with the help of the community and awesome tutorial posts that I can't seem to find. I don't care about how many packs you open or what cards you got, I just want to pick your brain!

Here's what I mean. Back in the day whenever I got a Bronze 99 battle I used the Life lineup above. I won most of the time, well at least enough of the time, to be happy. But now I can't win at all with that line up.

So what is your most potent 99 line up using starter cards for chaos. I'd love to read some who, what, whys in the comments and start having fun in this game again.

I agree this is always the issue with new sets of cards in TCG type games.

It makes me not want to play also, to much time to keep up with the "current" game.

I know. And, my thought was that when chaos came out the value of my collection would go down and it has. I'm sure it is good for the growth of the game and things like that but right now the game is losing me.

Earth got a real boost with Chaos, especially high mana cards, so I'm not surprised you lost.

Short term dip i'm sure!

yeah, I need some real lineups to get through my day. Just don't feel like going through all that trial and error again. Hard to motivate myself

I know the feeling of losing every game after a new expansion came out. It happened to me in every card game I love and play. I'm not surprised that you lost with the old line up. That can't work. We have to see what new cards are in the meta and then develop counter line ups. We are cutting down our win rate if we play the same line up all the time, ignoring what our opponents played recently.
I use a website to see my recent matches and I can test there other card combinations against opponents deck. This helps me to develop a feeling what I have to play.

I heard the new life summoner with the double attacking ranged monster is great. Of course you need that card to live a bit longer so maybe combining it with Shield bearer and maybe a healer might help.

On the brighter side, you are not really starting from scratch. There are just some new cards to learn about but the basics are pretty much the same for instance I still do not see a monster with HEal ability in the Death Splinter, but the Earth Splinter has a magic capable summoner, with about 8 different new magic attack monsters.
Don't give up :-)
