Welcome to Kenny's

Daily Pack Opening & Giveaway

Episode 31

So... I moved up to Diamond... Needless to say, I have gotten many more losses, as expected.

I didn't expect to see SO many max-leveled cards all the way down in Diamond 3 however... I figured people with those collections would stay farther up in Diamond, or even all the way up in Champion.

Anyway, between bumping up, and the raise in DEC, I'm getting a solid $0.60-90 per win right now :-)

Be sure to follow me on Hive, 3speak, and/or Odysee (the blockchain video platform with that pays you) so you don't miss anything!

Without further ado, let's crack packs!

This first embed is @3speak, and there's an Odysee embed at the bottom of the post.

Last Episode's Winner

Last episode (and until the 18th), we had a giveaway of 50 SPS, across 5 winners. The prompt for episode 30 was to about what everyone's favorite abilities in the game are.

This time there were 35 entries, and I decided to switch it up and not only give out double the SPS (since I skipped a day), but also just giving the prizes to 10 folks that haven't won one of my giveaways yet:

Winners: @l337m45732, @theduce, @chuckrick, @yras, @mr-kerad, @koodies, @magooz, @putu300, @rqr4, @kotenoke

Thanks for entering everyone!

Today's Giveaway Prompt

So, from now until October 18th, when the air-drop for Chaos Legion vouchers starts, I'll be giving away 50 SPS on every episode!

Every episode will be the same format, 5 winners chosen by RNG, from the valid entries. All that is required is to leave a comment responding to that episode's prompt/question.

Today's prompt is:

What ability or other game mechanic from some other game would you like to see added to Splinterlands? Or at least something like it - feel free to go in-depth.

Good luck!

Watch on Odysee

I always think that element strengths & weaknesses (i.e. water is buff against fire) will be a great addition to Splinterlands.

Thanks for the giveaway.
Cheers.

Thanks for the SPS! I'm not sure if it's already an ability... I'm pretty new, but it would be cool if there was a summon x card when y card dies. Or revive a card that was already killed. Something like that. Good luck everyone!

I would love for a story mode or maybe a dungeon mode. Like what if as a guild you could tackle some piece of storied lore. I don't know how that might end up fitting into the current mechanics but I love single player and multiplayer exploring games. I think combining some of that with the art and lore of splinterlands would be an amazing next step.

That sounds like a great idea!

It could be some kind of competitive cooperative boss battle - that's something that has existed in various mobile and other digital card games.

I might actually write a whole post with what it could look like, without having to change much at all from how Splinterlands already functions.

Well and it would be a great way to help increase everyone's knowledge of the lore. Could be splinter specific lore or it could be the lore for the editions. I have to imagine something like that would be on their road map since the lore is already written.

One aspect that I think would really help gameplay enjoyment would be some kind of chart or tracker to let you track your rating in the leagues. By the time the end of the season rolls around I typically forget the journey and it would be something I would enjoy watching. We could also track earnings and other stats.

I would love to see ability activated when a monster is hit. A bit like thorns but for posion (toxic?) Or Stun (freeze?) So you could have a little low mana guy that is just a pain to hit, maybe a good sneak destroyer?

Thanks so much! I saw the SPS go through and have been waiting for your post.

For this one I think I'd like to see an offensive buff ability. This is in the same realm as my madhatter card idea. When the monster successfully lands an attack, backline card gets +1 melee attack. This would be restricted to 5+ mana cards however as this buff could potentially give an attack to a card that wouldnt otherwise have one. It could potentially see an interesting meta develop with creating a superpowered backline tank.

I haven't played that many games in this style. Getting paid is great. Seeing their collection power is interesting. Possibly some random events. This could be 5 points of stats will be randomly added or removed from random characters for this match. Might have to be semi random due to provable and fair fights.

Oof on the timing of that General, but still a great pack.

It's tough to come up with mechanics from other card games that would work in Splinterlands, mostly due to the lack of interactivity after the deck-building stage. Maybe some kind of ban list, where before either player starts choosing their team, they have a chance to ban their opponent from playing certain cards. It could even come with a cost, like reducing the mana cap by some percentage, or adding an additional penalty to that player's team.

Hmmm... actually you could do a lot with that outside of banning cards. There could be modes where you each get the chance to add modifiers before the battle starts. There's an opportunity to really expand on the pre-game without changing any of the core battle mechanics. I guess some of the stuff in the land expansion might be similar. We'll have to wait and see on that.

It is what it is :-P I actually just thought of a great use for it as I'm sitting here typing this.

Maybe some kind of ban list, where before either player starts choosing their team, they have a chance to ban their opponent from playing certain cards.

They actually added this in brawls 2.0 - there is now a Guild ability that allows players to ban 1 card from each opponent, in home games.

There could be modes where you each get the chance to add modifiers before the battle starts.

I really like the sound of this! I really like the idea of running custom battles (like you described or even setting the mana/rules) as well. At least for friendly challenge matches, if not for tournaments. If I want to run an whole tournament that is no magic, no legends - why shouldn't I be able to?

As to the difficulty due to lack of interaction, I can definitely see that - I guess they have already covered a LOT of the basics. I can think of a handful of abilities :-)

Thank you for the giveaway.
I think it would be fun if there was a tag team feature. It's like placing a card collection that includes a tag team bonus into a battle deck. For example, the Giant Roc card, Flame Imp, and Spark Pixie. If placed in a lineup, it has a tag team + blast bonus.
If one of them dies, the tag team bonus will be lost.

untitled_1.png

Effects
Side of the battle will increase the probability of an unexpected victory.
On the collection side, players will try to complete their collection to get a tag team bonus. Cards that have low abilities, which have not been in demand, will be hunted by tag team collectors.
Splinterland may publish a list of monsters that have tag team abilities. maybe based on stories, similarities in abilities, or similarities in numbers. a minimum of 3 cards to have a bonus tag.

I'm not sure if this can count as entry but here it goes:

I can't think of any in-game mechanic that I'd like to add because I'm totally okay with how Splinterlands currently is. What I want as an addition though, is the battle pass system that is similar to Dota/Valorant. It is basically buying an item that is worth >$10, then you get to unlock additional items after that by levelling up and doing quests based on that.

It would be fun to have something like that, which could serve as an additional daily quest where we could unlock cosmetics or one-time use ECR regen potions.

I think it would be interesting if there was a game mechanic wherein a monster had a specific counter to one to three cards, where the card in question did triple the attack damage towards those very few cards. That could be interesting, but that also could have some significant disadvantages, so it would need to be carefully balanced and could serve as a mechanic used against overpowered cards.

A mechanic that could be really interesting is a healer that could heal specifically your backline units. It could be another option for keeping important damage units alive aside from, for example, throwing a tank in the last slot to defend against sneak, which sometimes could result in a loss of dps due to the tank likely being melee.

The proposed mechanic you are suggesting already exists in the game.

That mechanic is called Triage, and there's at least one card in each splinter with it... though many not at level 1.

I'm not sure if there's anyone with this ability, but I'm thinking of a Dark Knight with a sacrifice ability. He's a tank with high hp, some armor, and maybe void armor, but has low melee attack. Every round he'd sacrifice his HP to make his attack stronger. For example in round one he'd have 10HP, 2Atk, next round (assuming his armor took all the damage) he'd have 9HP, 3At, and so on.

If this could be about what will be the new ability to release, I guest I want a card ability that will always attack first no matter what the rules is, he will attack first at a normal rules and also will attack first at reverse speed rules, maybe a good name would be "Godspeed" or something about always being first. Thank you for the giveaway.

I'd like to have even just a bit of player interaction while in battle and make it less auto. Maybe a one time chance, before the start of a round, for a player to switch a monster in battle with another from his/her deck with the same mana cost. Basically a substitution. Or a special ability that makes the player choose which enemy monster to attack first, like an upgraded snipe or opportunity albeit one-use only. For example, given 3 enemy mons with 1 hp, instead of rng, you have the option to pick which to kill first. I don't mind the auto battles, but being able to use the brain once or twice in-battle to probably execute a game-changing tactic would also be fun! ^~^ @harayatim

I would love to see the ability of losing a card, for real and forever. I mean, it doesn't necessarily be one of our permanent and hard earned cards, but maybe a kind of brawl with some cheaper or easy reward that can be lost and win only in battles. Let's see you got some deck of 10 cheap disposable cards, but you get another that is golden legendary and also disposable one. You could sell that one, or have it as a kind of badge. Or maybe after having, I don't know maybe 1000 disposable cheap cards, you can trade it for an actual permanent Epic, Rare or Legendary. The thing is to incentivize people to win and get more of those.

For me it would be great if there was an in-depth stats tracker like in MOBILE LEGENDS, although we can view these data, it would be better if it will be like this:

STATS.jpg

Instead of PUSH, KDA, SURVIVAL, etc., maybe we could place magic tank, physical tank, magic damage, speed, heal and others. This stats can be viewed for different splinters. So by having this, we can easily see what are the counters for splinters with high magic damage or high melee damage and we can also see what our splinter line-up is lacking. I hope you get what I am saying hahaha

I would like to see a position disruptor skill. Like the card is in first position, there is a chance to "hook" a backline card of the enemy and put it on their first position.

Much like Pudge from DotA.

I'd be choosing Global silence wherein during the first round.. all enemy abilities are silenced.. it would be great specially against those you uses, sneak and other abilities that attack another target... It can also cancel the taunt skill that can prevent a tank from aggroing the cards attacks..

My favorite game mechanic from another card game comes from Magic the Gathering, which I personally don't see why these two get compared so much. Yes, they are both card games where you summon monsters to fight for you, but layout, design, mechanics, basically nothing about the two are similar aside from the premise. Anyways, my favorite mechanic was really a couple of them combined together, which really came together when they released the guilds, the blue and black specifically. The melding of technics resulted in a very ruthless, vile, and often extremely efficient deck build centered around preventing your opponent from being able to play their cards while forcing them to throw away their potential future options at the same time. 🤯

Splinterlands is an amazing innovative step forward for gaming, and it's is free to play, so you can get a feel for the gameplay, and only $10 to buy you're own spellbook and begin earning by gaming. If you join through my referral link which will help me in the future, and I can help you get a step ahead by hooking you up with some cards! https://splinterlands.com?ref=sublimjester

  • Raid Mode ~!
  • Locked League to the range of versions of cards like MTG! (That mean re-release of old cards (minus reward/airdrop cards of course) once in a while which will allow new players to get popular card)
  • Events with color lock/ban lists
  • Negative Mana Card(s) with negative effect to own team which will allow players to increase total mana

The game itself is pretty perfect.

What really needs to be improved is the order and convenience of everything. For example as a player who rents out a few cards, an easier interface for managing the cards I rent and rent would help a lot. Or notice of cancellation of rental etc.
Similarly when choosing the cards for battle, an option to create favorite cards that I use quite regularly (the chicken for example) would make life easier ...

On this subject they can take a good example from any other game, but the one I remember particularly well on this subject was X-COM. This game required management of several things simultaneously but it always felt so smooth and simple.

Pushback ability would be interesting. Only the card in the frontline could use this ability. The creature would have a 25% chance to move the enemies front tank 1 space behind, so the second creature in line would be now the front card.
This ability would be a double edged sword:

  • in case there is a glass cannon in the second space or a card with reach, then those could be eliminated easier
  • in cases, there is a heavy tank in the second line as well, then the healthy tank would come forth and start the fight, giving a better chance for the enemy team to win.

The card with the Pushback ability can only be a high mana tank or a pacifistic card with no attack.

It might be a simple one but I think it would be fun to have an in-game chat while you were battling with another player in real-time. As long as you don't leave the battle, you can chat with the opponent. It's good for learning purposes but I can also see the negative impact of it which can lead to toxicity.

I would like to see the Equipment mechanic from Magic the Gathering: cards that aren't monsters, but are attached to a monster to give it an advantage.

For example, there could be an Equipment that would give +X Health to your frontline monster. When the 1st monster is killed, the equipment would also be destroyed.

This would allow a player play MORE than 7 cards max (1 summoner + 6 monsters), as you could spend you mana to play extra Equipments.

Splinterlands already has so many abilities that it's difficult. Maybe an ability that allowed other monsters to attack from a space where they usually can't attack. So a melee monster that is in the first position has this ability that allows the next melee monster to attack as if it was in the first position.

The Splinterlands community is the best, you prove it once more! It's because awesome people like you starting players have a chance to build their accounts a lot faster.

The ability I would like to see is not really an ability. Some card games have cards you can "fuse" with your hero, in our case our splinter, like a shield or a weapon that makes that hero (splinter) a bit more powerfull.
