My Splinterlands: Season 3 Episode 2

First season was, obviously, the first with plenty of mistakes to learn from.
Second season was, well, the consequence of one of these mistakes.
I consider this season my first real serious season, so I want to push to see what I can make of it.
So far I'm happy with the start: I'm at +162 DEC, 5 Rares, 10 Commons.

Day 5: Earth

I've started using 2 new monsters: Flesh Golem (for the self-healing) and Hill Giant (for the cheap health). Both make cheap tanks that can go first or last place. For example, for just 3 manas, the Hill Giant protects all the backline against sneak monsters.

16 wins - 5 losses - 1 draw
Rating: 1102 => 1307
Cost of rent: 41 DEC
15 Chests: 108 DEC, 3 Commons

Day 6: Water

I put in my team Naga Windmaster, for the special tech against Life. First match, and already he made himself useful. It's pretty situational though, but against the right opponent it's pretty incapacitating!

16 wins - 9 losses
Rating 1307 => 1486
Cost of rent: 24 DEC
15 chests: 175 DEC, 1 Epic, 2 Rares, 4 Commons

Day 7: Earth

New monster of the day: Mushroom Seer. Tech against magic monster, and Obsidian in particular. With that, Mylor cover melee opponents, and this combo would in theory make me dominate mirrors. Again, I had the opportunity to try it out quite early, and it does work well.

16 wins - 14 losses
Rating 1486 => 1572
Cost of rent: 39 DEC
14 chests: 23 DEC, 1 GF Common (skull), 2 Commons

Day 8: Life

Yeah, Life is hard. Life sucks. Life is not even fun. Or I just don't know how to play it, but in all cases I don't like it. Still managed to get some decent amount of chests, so it's not that bad.
But I will share one loss against Fire. I still prefer to see Life losing, even if it's me!

16 wins - 19 losses
Rating 1572 => 1531 starting to stagnate
Cost of rent: 32 DEC
13 chests: 25 DEC, 1 Rare, 5 Commons

So at this point of the season, I'm at +357 DEC and 1 Epic, 8 Rares, 25 Commons (of which 1 GF) and... 61 EoS chests waiting. Pretty happy with it but I still have a few to grind in order to beat my record!

You're leaving me in the damn dust! 61 EOS chests already! I'm sitting at 51 and struggling. four days left...I better hope for some Earth of Water splinters or its game over for me already 😂

I got Fire atm until like 11pm tonight when its over, going to aim to rent up when I'm free in a couple hours and try at least secure a few more EOS chests before it resets, not sure how well I can do with Yodin if I go all out for him 🤔

Have a great one bro, keep the grind up! due some good rewards soon ;)

I'm slowing down too. I guess around 70 is the limit of regular players. Can't do much more, unless we go up in league, or we rent crazy stuff for a 75% winrate.
Never really tried Yodin, I rented him once, and I feel it needs high mana matches, here in Bronze we still have often less than 20 mana.
Yeah, EoS will be juicy in all cases. More likely, I get a few more potions than you! !LOLZ

Surprisingly had a good time with Yodin yesterday! And you saw my rewards on disc, if I didn't get that card I'd be down 130~ DEC for them rentals 🤣

Nah we manifest the good things here, I felt it last night and it happened just believe EoS you got that legendary gf waiting for you

I may try Yodin next time. I got Fire too, went with Tarsa but hell, Mylor everywhere it's so frustrating.
I think I will start buying cards too before the end of the airdrop. These DEC won't make à big difference anyway.

I was going to go with Tarsa but I figured what the heck, I'm learning still let me just enjoy myself, sold off a few tokens I had in my wallet to cover any rental costs as it was quite high tbh but honestly I wrecked people. It shocked me how enjoyable it was to just blast everyone away, I think I'm currently doing better as Yodin than I do with Mylor/Earth.

That's a smart play! I may have to follow suite, only held as much DEC as I've got due to the airdrop anyway

Yeah, I think now is the time. 15 days. Smart people will unload 1 week before, we will see I guess DEC dump and card price increase due to higher demand. The difference in SPS is peanut anyway for now
