Borrowed Luck - My First CL pack opening experience

Hello Everyone,
It is I inuke the full-time office bug and a part-time lazy ass writer. And I hope that you are in good health. Alright, I think it is a good time to let you that I am a part-time lazy gamer too. Why now? (I don’t know, It just felt like a good way of letting you know that I am gaming on Hive) And it is no surprise that I spent a few bucks on the Splinterland about 2 years and look where I am now. (I am in the Bronze league baby!!!)


And That Is Why I Borrowed Luck

Ok, Dropping the shinanigans. I started Splinterland about 2 years back and after playing for a month or so I decided it was a good time to take a 1 and 1/2 year break from the game. And a lot has changed during that period. New cards, New rules, New Style. And as I got used to it. The Splinterland decided to launch a new deck of cards.
(Guys!!! I am not complaining. This is how I usually talk and appreciate things.)

Anyway, As soon as I heard that there is a new set of cards getting ready to be launched I started grinding and putting in my max effort and following top players, planning strategy, and renting high power cards only to be kicked around by the guy packing more firepower. After months of grinding and playing and avg of 300Matches per season. I finally collected 1 voucher. (Sigh, I know it is not easy at this stage)

Finally, the time has come to open the new pack that I bought. And after pulling out crappy cards season after season. I decided it's finally time to call in a proxy who has a very good hand pulling better reward. MY WIFE.

So I made the call. And after letting her know how my day went in the office. We got down to the business.

“Are you sure, you want to do this?” She asked for my confirmation one more time before I dropped the CL in the well.
“Let go, baby!!!.” I confirmed. Knowing that holding on to the only CL Pack that I have is worth more. But as always I wanted to go after the birds in the bushes.
“Alright. Drop it in...” She gave me the go. I was about to drop in the Pack.
“You forgot the potions!!! You forgot the potions!!!” She signaled me to abort.
“Pheew!!! Good call.” I dropped in the Gold and Legendary Portions.
“Shall we..?!!!” I asked her if the plan is still a go.
“Hmm...”
And I dropped the CL Pack in the well.

“Cool animation re..” She complimented the animators. Well, they deserve the praise. And the animation transitioned into 5 cards.

“Kaunsa wala pahala?” (Which one first) I asked.
“Third. Open Third wala..”
The card flipped into Shadow Snitch Common Card.
“Nahi yaar nahi karna...” (I dont want to.) She wanted to abort.
“Koi option nahi hain. Abhi open karna hi hain.” (We can’t go back)

“First wala”. She asked me to flip the First card.
Vanari Knifer.
“Yaar ye bhi common hain.” (This one also turned out to be common) I was disappointed.
“Hey this is a cool card..I like it. Let open next one”

“Panchva..” (Fifth)
I clicked the card and it flipped into a Rare one.
“Kya karta hain ye?” (What does this one do?) She asked about the Portal Spinner.
“Dont know re. Nayi powers hain.” I replied.

“Chauntha.” (Fourth)
I clicked on the fouth card and it started vibrating. I smiled and she probably was smiling too.
And it was the Fire legendary card IFRIT RISING.
"Waah!! Kya sahi dikhta hain.." (It's super cool looking card) she praised the design.
“Oh Oh !!!! Super....Nice... Se isliye meine tujhe kaha open karne. Mein karta to CL Pack mein bhi Potions aa jate...” (See, My decision of you opening the card is correct... With my luck I would have gotten potions in the CL pack too.. ) I praised her for her luck.

“Last wala bhi open kar do” (Go for the last one as well...)
It was another rare card. Death splinter, Life Leech. Super cool ability.

“Next pack bhi tum open karna.. ab se tum pack opener..” (From next time onward you open the pack. I dub thee Pack Opener)
And that was my first CL pack opening event.

I am @inuke,
And this is my new chapter in Splinterland. I hope to catch up, which doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon. But I will keep trying. I also appreciate the help I received from @bala41228, @sayee, @blog-beginner, @bhattg, and getting back in the game.

PS: I thought of creating another account just to talk about the games that I play. But after having a look at @moviekeeda, I am taking a second guess. :-D

I didn't even know you were playing this game :^)

Nice to have a lucky charm on your side.

I never played Splinterlands and I don't think I ever will. I only have 8 arms and they are already all over the place...

Hahaha,
I revived the gaming only a few months back. And trying to revive it.
This one is challenging enough to keep me engaged.
:-D
And simple enough that I don't get stressed out. :-P

Maybe the MMW and the Raptor can get on something together. I mean apart from the regular Chess. What do you say?

Nice XD

12yo and I bought some packs in the presale. I sent him one pack to get him to a round number and to get me down to an odd number (his ocd was kicking his butt about it not being a round number and mine was nibbling on me about having an even number).

My remaining packs were alright. Youngest got a Legendary and a LOT of epics so he decided that it was the pack I had sent him that had brought all the luck XD

ps - so your meme, are you the one inside the armour or the one who shot the arrow? XD

Hahaha... I am not sure if it's OCD. But it always bothers me when the volume is something like 23-24.. why not 25 or 20. Same goes for alarm.. my wife has this habit of setting alarm like 06:42Hrs... I mean what madness is that. It bothers me a lot it's like having a itch like in back where you can't scratch. That's not OCD, it's normal behaviour right?.. right???

I hope you get good cards..❤️☮️

That's probably normal XD as far as I can tell it might be a mild tendency if you feel compelled to "fix" it/really, really struggle not to fix it (because normal people as far as I can tell would notice and go hm that's odd but otherwise not care) and full blown to bad if you HAVE to fix it otherwise something terrible will happen.

Ah... I think I can live with the alarm begin set at time which is not divisible by 5mins.
😆

And if I try to correct it there is small chance that bad thing happening to me (small chance of me pissing off my wife)...

So we all have OCD it's just the severity.
❤️☮️

and you say no luck? That legendary is the most sought after and very good. Continue playing and also start buying individual cards from the market after the price falls or from general sales.

Haha.. this is borrowed luck dear.
I am making progress though. I rented out a few card this season giving me 27DEC/DAY. It's not much but still a good progress from my stand point.
Also I cracked Silver III.

See you soon in battlefield or maybe after a year 😆😆😆
