# Splinterlands Land Math Part 3 - My Final Word

I have received incredibly good feedback on my last two posts about Splinterland Land Math and my prediction that common land would fall to \$5. In this final post, I will try to make the full case that I am completely wrong, without invalidating any of my previous math. Ready for this?

## Common plots will never drop that low

(Because I would buy them like candy)

This is a quote from a Mav that I was talking to recently, and actually, it started to make some sense. Another good feedback was that if common land would fall this much in price the team would 'do something'. Nerf or boon something or other, do their development magic and fix it in the next phase.

Land is a long term game in Splinterlands, just like in real life - and I know something about that.

So when so many players and investors are looking so far into the future - 5-10 years I have heard - how sure can I be? Well, I am sure of one thing, and that is my math, but what if we could interpret my math in a different way?

## Relative value in a limited ecosystem

After doing even more calculations, I am completely convinced that somewhere between 92 and 99.9% of the production value of a region will be situated in the best 200 plots of the 1000 plot region. A lot of that is because of stacking the best cards and titles and totems into those plots, so its going to vary based on the account. I also believe these proportions to be true for tracts as well.

But this doesn't mean that the other plots are worthless, just worth less. Everyone is comfortable with the idea that commons are worth less than rares, but unless commons come down in price.... I fear tracts and regions are EXTREMELY undervalued.

Perhaps that's why a TRACT sold recently:

\$95.86 per plot - time will tell how happy this person will be in the future. Its cheap for the castle, will be it cheap for the common plots too?

Let's think about the reward pool for cards. Champions league get a whole lot more prize support than bronze league, same for tournaments. If land is designed to give a permanent bonus to alpha cards, will there still be big prize support for alpha card tournaments? or will some of that be turned over to modern players? I think its likely the latter.

There are only 150,000 plots. I don't want to shout this too loud because they can always 'find' another continent. But the point remains, while 20% of the spaces have a lot of the value, I think its likely that the reward pool is big enough (and diverse enough, in terms of what we can make with land), that even common plots will be worth it to work.

The addition of things such as building construction (investment) plus regional economics and territorial competitions is only going to give this 'long game' even more variables. Imagine trying to buy and sell plots in the future when each plot has a variable number of different buildings at different levels - it will get complicated! (what fun!) Don't forget the state of the keep and the level of the castle that corresponds to each plot 🤔

In the end this is a game of 4th dimensional space, as changes occur over time, there will likely be chances to make a lot of money - especially for the best players.

As per usually, you can pay to win, in this case 10kPP at a time. The only difference is this time its a free market for the tokens it takes to do so. I definitely think Splinterlands has a long future ahead of it, so I guess we are officially along for the ride. See you all 4/4!

There are a lot of things to really consider and I don't think your wrong in your assumption either. At this point, only the whitepaper has been released and we don't know how much the land resources will affect gameplay. If the result is minimal, then I don't expect prices to stay up that high. It's leaving a lot due to chance and the market is hard to predict.

I figure land rarity will be about the market cap of the Alpha cards, spread about with the rarities. It might take a while to get there, but with 150k lands, makes sense... As there were 150k alpha packs if I remember correctly.

Splinterlands no doubt has a great future ahead, with these much changes coming in the ecosystem, i can easily say that, your investment is secured and you will have a great future, if you stick to it.

I think I need to check out your previous articles, I would imagine the price of land must fall because \$100+ for land is a high entry ticket for new players.

It's hard to predict what will happen with the price of common plots when the land 1.5 isn't launched yet, but compared with any other events, I suppose that we will see the same pattern again... "buy the rumor sell the news" thing...
I agree that common plots will be dirty and cheap in a short period of time and those who got them will probably profit in the long term... It's always like that with investing...

I have picked this post on behalf of the @OurPick project which will be highlighted in the next post!

The value of grain will be the biggest factor affecting common land values.

When I look at land and the reaction of most of the players, the tendency is to go towards having as much PP per plot as possible. I think this is worng because if the price of grain is low, it will be impossible to make it rentable. I think the better approach would be to get as cheap PP as possible on your plots. Like that the return on investment can be much higher even with less PP. Because PP won't come free, they have to be fed as well :-). It's going to be fun I believe.

I don't see the urgency. We all survey, then what?
Clearing land is months out, so what do I need to dump commons to fundraise for?
I'll just sit on them a month or so and see what the price does.
As will every large hodler. Without sellers, there's no dumpening.
Give it a month or so, and everyone holding back dry powder waiting to snap up \$40 common plots in bulk, is going to change their tune and FOMO in at \$100+
