DYMYSTFYING HOW SPLINTERLANDS GAME APPEARS TO US
In the Battle, your team is playing against the opponent's team.
Your team consists of 1 Summoner and 1 to 6 Monsters, which are in form of cards.
The aim is to defeat the opponent's Monsters. Which means all his or her cards will be knocked out while yours will be left standing (maybe 1 card or all).
UNDERSTANDING THE DETAILS OF THE GAME
Every game has:
- a Combat Rule
- Mana Cap
- and Available Splinters
- The combat rule tells us the rules of the game.
- For beginners, you'll always see Standard rule.
- For the Standard rule, there's no modifications to the standard gameplay rules and mechanics. Everything is the same.
- But from Bronze 2 upwards, you'll get different rules.
- Every card has a mana level attached to it, both the Summoner and the Monsters.
- Mana cap simply means that the total amount of mana of all your cards should not exceed the specified mana cap of the game.
- There are 6 Primal forces in Splinterlands: Fire, Earth, Dragon, Death, Life and Water.
- The Summoners and Monsters are from one of these 6 forces.
- If you use a Summoner from a primal force, then your Monsters will come from the same primal force.
- However, we have Monsters who are neutral, they can be summoned by any Summoner.
Having considered the Combat of the Game, Mana Cap and Available Splinters, remember that you have only 3 minutes to do all your selections and strategies.
CREATING YOUR TEAM
Create your team based on the Combat rules, Mana cap and selected Splinter.
CHOOSING YOUR SUMMONER
In creating your team, the first thing you do is to select your SUMMONER.
Here are what to consider in choosing your Summoner:
- Consider the Primal Force: fire, water, earth, Dragon... etc
- Consider the mana of the Summoner, based on the mana cap of the game.
- Consider the ability/style of the Summoner
CHOOSING YOUR MONSTERS
Next is choosing your Monster, and this is where you need to consider a whole lot:
- Consider the Mana Cap
- Consider the health
- Consider the Speed
- Consider the kind of attack and the attack effect
- Consider the Kinds of Attack
- Melee Attack
- Magic Attack
- Ranged Attack
- Consider the style
CHOOSING YOUR LINE-UP
SO FROM ALL WEVE LEARNT, HOW DO WE CONSIDER THE STRATEGY TO USE IN
CHOOSING YOUR PLAYERS FOR LINE UP?
Consider the following tips:
- Make sure your first 2 or 3 cards are short range attackers.
- Do not use only long range attackers at that first line up.
- 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.

Smiles, those cards you selected for that game means say you don kill your opponent. The sneak and the opportunist. 🔥...
Great content man. Who find time to go through the video.
No be small
I dealt with my opponent and I won the game with all my cards intact.
Yea, it's a long one, but the fact is, you can't exhaustively explain all there is in Splinterlands game in just a 5mins video. I didn't even touch the unique styles/skills of each cards.
Well, I summarised it for those who may not have time to go through the video.
Hello. Can players change their cards from one account to another in a tournament?
Do guilds have this option so they can always have most powerful cards? A lot of Gold league players in Bronze tournaments.
You can also tell the robots quite easily. Usually no profile icon and a number after their name. They keep those things running even when their DEC pay out is hardly nothing. There high cards will still beat most players though. You can beat them but it takes some stragy and better cards of course.
I just began playing tournaments on Splinterlands.
I believe transferring of cards to another account can be done as usual, except if there the tournament has rules/guidelines preventing it.
I'm not in a guild yet, so I really don't know the benefits of being in a guild. I hope to be in one soon.
Nice information on the robots... I'll put them into consideration.
