Splinterlands New Updates and Reason Behind It

6 May 2022

Splinterlands is a Play to Earn game on the Hive Blockchain, one of the oldest and most successful games.

Many of the people onboard the hive cause of the splinterlands, seeing the hype I had also joined playing the game as you may know from my previous articles.

Till now I have collected the power from cards of more than 1000 which allows me to achieve bronze II ranks.

I have been playing the game for a couple of months but still I struggle to reach the bronze II level, as I am not very good with strategy games. I tried to make my own strategy from my losing matches. But as you know splinterlands keep updating those tricks that don't work for a long time and you have to discover a new strategy to play the game.

As you know Splinterlands keeps doing the maintenance and keep updating its game. Developers are awesome.
So this time they did add a major feature or change it.

The new change in-game is now You can't see the Name of the Opponent and it remains completely hidden

Thankfully you can still see his previous matches and summoners he used to play the games, which can give us a rough idea of which summoner we should use to win the game.

You can see in the above picture that when clicking on the battle and the enemy is being selected the name of the enemy and guild is hidden unlike earlier where we can see who is playing with us.

Now you might think it is a downgrade or upgrades and what might be the reason to keep hiding the enemy name, only after you select your summoner and cards when you start the game you will the enemy name.

Reason for the Update

  1. Bots: You know while playing the game, you might not always get the real person playing with you, while matchmaking when you are new most of the time you may get a bot to compete with you. So by looking at their names you can actually get a rough idea that it is a bot. I think many people got noticing it and used to win the matches against the bots as the pattern of the bot is similar and its a bit easy to win against the bot as some cards it uses, we can predict it.
    this can be the reason developers chose to hide the name of the opponents.

  2. Searching for names of enemies: This might be rare but, if some geeks are really into the game they might use another account of splinterlands and search for the username of energy in splinterlands and see his previous battles to get the idea which cards he gonna use this time. There is still a possibility that can happen.

These are some following reasons for the splinterlands updates, I know developers will take decisions on what's best for the game and keep away the cheaters in-game.

I continue to play the game and improve myself, I keep collecting cards from the chest rewards and increase my power. I hope one day I grow so much that I can take the profit out the game. Currently, it's time to invest in it.

Most of you already might be playing the game but still if you don't.

Very interesting. I didn't realize they made these changes. I don't really pay much attention to that part of the game though. I kind of get on automatic when I am doing my daily quests and I don't really look at the name of the person. Same thing with brawls. I guess I will have to pay more attention now. I found this post on Listnerds.

Not seeing your opponent is the one i love most in the update as well, it gives everyone the confidence they need to battle an opponent without worrying if he is a top player or not....

I think not seeing who we are playing against during the set up stage is an improvement.

It's probably not that you are not good at strategy, rather that the game has so many variables. I have a go-to set up that does well most of the time, but gets defeated fairly often too. I also like the way special rules are added to some games so that you can't always set up in the way you'd like to. It keeps you on your toes and hovering between frustration and elation!

Not seeing your opponent ahead of time adds an extra challenge to the game in a good way.
