Finding Some Playing Time
With the new rewards system, I think the overall quality of the rewards has improved although they are much harder to get at least at the start of the season. As you progress up to your maximum league, it becomes easier although still harder to get the 5 reward chests that the old system offered.
Take today for example, only managed to play enough to get 3 rewards chests but one of them was an Epic card. Quality over quantity.
The other thing i've been doing is buying some cheap rewards cards in anticipation of them going out of print. It's a gamble that's mainly dependent on the crypto winter ending and hype returning to Splinterlands when the land expansion is rolled out. We saw some nice 10x price increases and at these low prices, I'm putting some of the DEC earned to work.
