Splinterlands – Where to next?

About a week ago Splinterlands came with its next update about Chaos legion which is their new line of cards. After the Alpha, Beta, Dice and Untamed packs now Chaos legion will be the next line of cards including details on how to buy them

What will these new updates mean to me as an average player with a small stack of cards and what will be the tactic?

SPS

One of the changes already from a while back was the introduction of the SPS token which we all receive in a daily airdrop for holding your assets. It will be used for governance later on, but now also the staking of the SPS token finally has use case. Buying Chaos legion packs will be possible with credits. You know, the golden thing on top of your screen which no one ever uses. But now these packs will be only available with these credits, and you can buy your credits with DEC and SPS as well as other cryptos.

Perfect you think. Buying packs with SPS which you receive for free daily. Win win I would say, buying packs with free money. I get a couple of them and have around 2500 SPS, so I thought it would be some good shopping time for me.

But then came the big buttttttt

I still get nice daily rewards with my quests. Always still worth it, although a bit lower in price now


So a Chaos pack will cost $4 which is more expensive than the previous packs, but since the game went up so much in popularity, it seems reasonable before everything sell out in a heartbeat and the market will be over flooded. To buy a pack you will also need to pay with a different currency called VOUCHER. VOUCHER will received with having your SPS staked.

Crap there goes my idea of buying tons of packs with liquid SPS, because I need to stake them to receive VOUCHER. Annoying, which means this is brilliant market move actually. Reason for people to stake and not to sell, and there you have it.

You will receive VOUCHER on the daily and I am curious how much I will receiving. A sure thing is that with my 220K DEC power and the SPS that comes from that, no way I will be having enough VOUCHER for my planned 100 packs, which is kind of a bummer.

Not every draw of dailies is that nice. Can’t have it all


So what then?

Good question. Of course there was also a big land sale a while back which still has no use case as yet. Also what you see in the brawl as well as with the land expansion is that Splinterlands is not really the game of the small player anymore. With my 220K DEC value and my 2237 ranking points I really am not that big of a player, even though all my cards are like level 4 or so, I am one of the lower ranked players in my guild, and there for not playing and not receiving any merits for that.

Are you catching my drift? If you are in the lower levels of playing the question will rise if you will be able to keep up with the bigger boys and if that makes sense. My collection was worth around 19K in its previous all time high and now it is worth around $12K which is still a crap load of money for digital cards. But the crossroad is there of what is wisdom with my collection.

Cashing out a bit and playing with that in the bull run, or hoping that I will benefit from the fruits of the next upcoming changes. Time will soon tell what the decision will be

I think that Splinterlands is barely in the spotlight as it still has so much more growth and expansion. Looking to the future while guiding yourself from the past, packs will always be valuable and give great returns. I think this is one investment to HODL and sell along the way maybe x2, x3 or x5.

Well since there are 4 times as muchs cards in the new legion and maybe not an nft hype going on in 4 years, we dont know where this will end. Yes, pokemon cards now are worth a lot, but from a lot of other games they are not.

Balance is key I guess, I have a lot of doubles..it is about those doubles and not the ones I actually play with hehe

Great post! I think the addition of the two leagues will make it so you won't need to compete with the big boys, and this is a great time then to become one of those players in the "Modern" League (versus the Wild). Hope that makes sense! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Tell me a bit about more leagues getting in? You mean chaos league cards? Or actually something in between gold and silver. I guess I missed this update about this here so am very curious haha.

Thank you for all the support there!

Well, for Chaos Legions they will have two different Leagues is what they called it but that is true that it's confusing when you also have the various metals being called Leagues. Anyway, they will have a Modern League or Group, where you play the Untamed cards and the Chaos Legion cards and they will have a Wild League or group where you can play ALL the cards. You have the opportunity to earn DEC and rewards in both groups although they haven't exactly determined how that will go yet. I hope that's helpful to you! :)

This tool should help you work out how many vouchers you are likely to get with your stake. 😊

You should receive about 0.3 VOUCHER per 1000 SPS staked, a day. They will be in high demand so one thing you could consider is maybe selling VOUCHER on the open market, and use the 'cash' to convert to DEC and just buy cards you want after people start selling them. (Wait till the news wears of ofc, and prices start normalizing.)

BUT the downside is missing airdrops if you don't buy packs, so that's something to consider too.

Just thought I'd drop the 'alternative route' with VOUCHERS I've seen people consider in several chat rooms.

(People think VOUCHER might sell for at least (!) pack prices. So yeah. Just think about it.)

Ahhhh you know me. I want these cards fast because I just like having cards haha. but my greedyness hasn't made me think about this option as well, so thanks for the eye opener.

Maybe I should stake some more indeed to sell...18 oktober..I have some time to think about it haha

Remember you can't open the packs until after the presale either :D So not sure if you get the cards earlier at all :D Just the bonuses, which, to be honest, are cool, but yeah...

I will try to get 100 packs in the presale myself, but will also try to buy some later on, after the hype is a bit over :D

My plans changed drastically, after I read, how much staked SPS is needed for buying one single voucher.
Voucher prices will be high as well.
My 500-1000€ I put aside for Chaos Legion won't enter the bidding wars to come. I will scoop up cards, when they hit the market after CL release and hopefully there are a few packs left for us pleps, when the whales have eaten.
I mistakenly thought, CL would be a chance for ambitious newbies to catch up, but I guess, I was wrong.

I see what you mean. Having 2000 SPS staked now and that will even not give me a voucher per day. Guess I will be buying some packs, but selling some SPS as well. Not the whole buy-the-cards-bonanza as I had been wishing for

With my 50 staked SPS, I won't have a chance to be elligble for even one voucher. I hope, I can early on score one or two airdrop cards, but I don't keep my hopes up for that as well. But at least a couple of packs would be nice :o).
