Do I Need 3 Of The Same Of High Value Splinterlands Cards?
I'm still trying to wrap my head around the game and the economics within Splinterlands. I'm only a month into gameplay but I bought a few starter packs when Steemmonsters came out.
So I have mostly Alpha Cards in my smallish collection but wondering if I really need them. Especially with chaos coming. In the pic above it shows that I have 3 Arlics. I could sell for market price and be happy I supposed or rent them out but since they give you a free one to play with I'm unsure about what to do other than hold them.
My suspicion is that most of the inventory is stashed away with OG players who have tons of these cards but haven't sold them because it would flood the market and crash the prices. But there will come a point when a great flood comes unless we really need these cards to play. In my case I don't think I will ever play higher than bronze. I'm just not good at this type of thing but I'm having fun.
There will be a bunch of players who move up and play the game but I don't think that's for me. And, probably not for most people finding out the game during this run. Further, I'm wondering what will happen to these "old" cards once chaos comes out. Will they be part of game play and be in high demand or will chaos be its own thing.
My thought is that if new players come in from chaos they will try to accumulate chaos assets and not really look back at the expensive cards if they don't need to. If I were brand new and hadn't picked up starter packs a couple of years ago I don't think reaching back to pick up an Alpha Arlic would even cross my mind so I'm wondering if I just have some weird emotional attachment to my overvalued Alpha cards or if I'm lucky and should hold on to them even though I won't be leveling up and playing past bronze. (at least for a long time)
I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments. I always chose wrong so I don't expect success lol, but I want to do whats in my best interest for once.
