Hello everyone!

The admins, moderators, gamers, investors and those I haven't mentioned yet 🥰 It is my pleasure to be part of this community.

O yeah! I'm new in this community and new in Splinterlands game, and this is my very first post in the community.

I registered on Splinterlands' website on Wednesday, 5th January, but the rules of the game wasn't clear to me. I read the instructions on Splinterlands website. Even after @starstrings01 gave me some guidelines, I wasn't convinced and ready yet.

I went on YouTube to search for tutorials on Splinterlands game. I came across a Video titled “Splinterlands Beginner's Guide” by Solaito NFT Gaming Channel. It was indeed helpful and I must commend the creator of the video.

Well, to be honest, after watching the video I still wasn't convinced; I felt not ready yet.

But yesterday, after I read @clove71 post, I saw the need to join the Splinterlands community on Hive, Discord and other platforms. At least it will give me the opportunity to meet other gamers, learn from them and their experiences and share mine also. I believe with this I'll become a better Gamer and become better at Splinterlands Game.

From @clove71 post I met @rentaw03 my very first friend from the Splinterlands Community who gave me a gift card as a welcome gift.

I am truly grateful @rentaw03 🙏

I was also welcomed at the discord channel and, in fact, I received an interesting and educative response to the question I asked in the group.
I truly feel elated and welcomed!

MY FIRST BIGGEST WIN AS A NOVICE/NEWBIE IN SPLINTERLANDS

VideoCapture_20220108-231323.jpg

I began playing the Splinterlands game after I bought my first spell-book 18 hours ago (around 3am UTC +1) it took part of my sleep. And so far, I have played 19 games already 😅😅.

So far so Good, I can proudly call this my Biggest Win!


MY STRATEGY

Here is the Strategy I followed to pull of my First Biggest Win as a Novice or Newbie.


MY SUMMONER

So, I chose Tarsa from the Element of Fire, as my Summoner. Since I have limited cards as a novice, I chose Tarsa over Pyre from the Fire Family.


MY MONSTERS

  • I Chose Living Lava as my first card to go heads on against the opponent. It has 2 shields, 6 heart, although it doesn’t have higher speed but it has proven to me to be great at the first position.
  • My next pick was Radiated Brute: well I don’t know why I chose it hahahaha… maybe because of the 5 lives. So I placed it after the Living Lava so that if it replaces the living Lava, at least, it got 5 lives (well this is if sneakers and other long range attackers don’t kill it).
  • My next pick was D Jinn Appreentice… well, no special reason for choosing this card
  • For Radiated Scorcher, I chose it because it has 1 mana….. hahaha, and so I can fill up the space
  • I chose the rest (Goblin Fireball and Serpentine Spy) to see what they have got to offer me… and indeed it was great.

APPRECIATION

I appreciate @clove71 and the entire curation team, admin and moderators of @splinterlands community for running this platform and making it a home for lovers of splinterlands. A home where they can share their experiences, battles, art, partake in challenges, win crypto and other fun activities. It is truly and awesome job. I also appreciate @rentaw03 who is my first friend from the Splinterlands Community. I hope to see more of your games and grow with you also.

Thank you for the warm welcome

Awesome game strategy @ksam

I love the fact that you are eager to learn and play splinterlands. Nice one man.

I am also very new at playing this too. I am yet to get my spellbook so I play practice games.
I am curious to know how you won the game without even losing a card. What was your strategy? Is it speed, shield or your attack style?

Thank you so much bro
I'm grateful

Well from what I've learnt so far, the fact is that the strategy is a combination of many things.

*Try to consider these tips which I formulated so far.

  1. CHOOSING YOUR PLAYERS FOR LINE UP
  • Make sure your first 2 or 3 cards are short range attackers so that they can go head-on with the opponent's first line up.
  • Do not use only long range attackers at that first line up because they will receive multiply hits without even attacking their opponents.

Let me give you a relatable example:
An arrow man and a swordsman going head on.

You know the arrow is a long range tool where you can shoot from far distance, while the sword requires that you are close to your opponent to fight him.

In @splinterlands game, when the arrow man is the next opponent in the line (that is, short range) to fight heads on with the swordsman, the arrow man will not move or kill the swordsman. Because he is not a close range warrior. So here, the swordsman will defeat the arrowman without receiving a hit from the arrowman.

That is why you need to consider putting close range warriors first so that they can go head-on with the opponents.

  • Your first card should have good health (5 and above), speed (3 is nice, minimum of 2), shield if possible and special style will be helpful. Just like the Venari Knifer of earth Kingdom. The card has
  • 7 (heart) life
  • 4 speed
  • 2 Melee attack effect
  • With an additional style of Thorns... what it means is that, if you attack it head-on, you will be affected by its Thorns also. So this is a great game to be the first in line. So it can kill a card either by attacking the card head-on or by receiving a hit from the card head-on. Its a win-win (attack and defense strategy for just a card)

Screenshot_20220109-103222_Brave.jpg

  • After you've considered the card that will be first in line, make sure the next card is also a Melee attacker so that if the first card is knocked out, the second card can still go head-on with the opponents. Consider the speed, life and attack of the card, also consider shield.

  • Your third card should be a melee attacker or a magic attacker. Magic attackers can either attack from closed range or long range.

  • then your other cards should be long range attackers so that while the first game is going head-on, then can also attack from where they are. Some games attack by shooting fire or arrow from where they are, while others attack by jumping from their own 2nd line to attack the opponent (sneak). Consider using them because they will help defeat or weaken the opponents cards even before they get to the first line up to go head-on.

  1. Choosing your Summoner
  • If you look below the Summoner, you see +1❤ or +2🛡 or -❤... etc, what it means is that

  • if it is a + plus, then when the game begins it distribute the stat to all the cards. For instance a +1❤ means that all my team members will have extra life each. A +1🛡 will mean that all my players will be given an extra shield at the beginning of the game.

  • if it is a - minus, then it is an attack against your opponent. -1❤ means that all the opponents team will lose a life at the beginning of the game... A -magic attack will mean that all the opponents card will be attacked with the magic attack.. and you know that the magic attack is dangerous and it never misses.

Just try these few tips for now...

Awwnnn... This is beautiful.
You guys are enjoying some games here.
I'm not sure if/when I will get started with games, I feel the not ready thing and after reading how you were tutored and still had to go on research to learn this, I feel I like I cannot learn this that easily.

Hahaha
One thing about gaming is that most of us have been playing small games since childhood: from the little Snake games, to brick games, to different levels and types of football games. We've built the interest, zeal and logic of playing games. Such that we can learn new games immediately.

And remember those games we played during our Childhood days were played for fun and we enjoyed them. So right now, we have a game where you can play for fun, enjoy and also win crypto 😅😅😅 that's double, infact triple blessings.

So if you're not a gamer, it may be very difficult to get used to playing games for fun, else the interest will be for the crypto. But the disadvantage is that if the crypto isn't forthcoming, the game will not be enjoyable again.
