My Rental adventure 2023 - 20 weeks later, as summoners are here!
Splinterlands latest news are:
- There is a new event, where you can get some amazing prizes is you manage to be in the first 200, and some more random ones for every 10K of DEC tokens that you burn, celebrating 5 Years in Splinterlands. We are talkings tracts, lands, legendary titles and a lot more. Even some Runi and all kind of packs, starting with Alpha, all the way to Nightmare, but the standard is high, as the limit to enter into the first 200 club right now is to burn more than 450.000 DEC.
- Guild redo is on the cards, as I just listened to the Town Hall, even with some new buildings, and now we got Guild Points, burning our DEC and DEC-B tokens, the good news is that we can get 90% of our guild points back as we leave the guild, with 10% remaining to the guild as penalty for leaving. There is a permanent donation, and the personal one, that you take with you when you leave, depending if you check the "Donate to the guild" button or not. There is a 7 day probationary period for new members, with some restriction. And the best option of all, you can now buy Blood Stones and Power Stones using DEC, to boos your gladiator pack rewards.
- Staking SPS will replace the collection power, and this is big for the SPS utility, as until now we had only some feeble attempts to use it properly, at least this is what I think. You can still play on higher ranks, it is just that your rewards will decrease if you do not have the right amount of SPS staked for that rank. Some words about SPS delegation were said too. You may need up to 11K SPS for Silver, up to 58K for Gold, and up to 177K for Diamond. Then you need 241K, 318K and 413K for the Champion ranks.
- Secret of Pretoria 1.5 Land Whitepaper is out, and I can probably can make few articles about it. This is the short version, with the most important bits. We have 150 regions with 1000 lands each, so the total number is 150.000. All teritories have 20-22 regions. There are 14 different terrain types, 4 rarities (common, rare, epic, legendary), and the resource type can be natural, magical or Occupied. Each region will have a castle and 10 keeps, this specific plots can collect taxes and fees from the entire region. We have Starter packages, that can be bought with DEC-B and DEC, doing different things. Important bit is that some contain free Power Sources, as each plot need one to work, and if you buy it is 5000 DEC. Up to 5 cards can be staked normally, to get resources, construct building and so one, and the Alpha Beta etc are better than Chaos, Legendary are better than common, and Gold are better than Regular. Max level is the best one too. Think about this and how the market will boom when the land is here. You need 10K DEC to stack a max level card, and less if the card is lower level. There is a Production Points (PP) system and the better your staked cards and the land rarity, the bigger is the production. Plots needs to be cleared, and you use production points for it. Magical lands research the Secret of Pretoria, Occupied lands mine SPS. Runi gives you an extra card spot to stake. Runi, Totems, titles, can be used to boost production. There is a resource called Grain, consumed by workers to achieve 100% production. Less Grain, less production. Harvesting will be similar to claiming staking rewards. Any change to the plot will trigger auto-harvest. On the version 1.5 there is a 10% tax on all harvest. Transporting Grain or other resources from one region to another implies a 12.5% transportation fee. Cards can be staken instantly, but needs a 3 days cooldown when unstaked. Below you can see the new roadmap.
As for my Splinterlands plans I was testing myself to see if I can reach Diamond once more, but right now I realized that I played too much in Silver and I forgot how to play properly in Gold. I may try the alternative solution and see if it is easier to do it in the Modern Format, without bots. Seems a bit better. My Chaos Legion core cards are all max level now, so it is time to start on the Riftwatchers level up. I did use some extra SPS exchanged into DEC to upgrade some key cards, and I may focus on upgrading some of my summoners next, now that they are cheaper then before, as we were informed that they will not be used for land. I burn a bit of DEC for the contest, but the Leaderboard is crazy, with 450K DEC to burn to enter in the last spot of the leaderboard.

As I have started this few season ago (beginning of November), these are my stats:
Chaos Legion packs unopened: 422 (+2)
Riftwatchers packs bought: 155 (+1)
Riftwatchers packs unopened: 4 (+1)
Cards upgraded and rented: I managed to upgrade some of my summoners, now that they got cheaper.
Upgraded all of them to level 4.
Upgraded to level 5
Upgraded to level 6
The time is near. I am now upgrading key cards, looking at some summoners that are quite cheap, and continue upgrading the Riftwatchers. The strategy was to use the DEC from rentals to upgrade fully the Riftwatchers set, but the renting profit plummeted lately. ( I have left to upgrade 13 common, 12 rare, 6 epics and 7 legendary cards). I want to buy some max level Gold and legendary cards, if possible, to get 5 lands fully prepared (1 Keep and 1 Castle, and the 3 occupied ones). In the same time I need to get some more RW packs, already started to buy them, one by one, now that CL ended, and use the GLX and SPS rewarded from now on to upgrade some cards. Vouchers still go on Tribaldex for more SPS farming (Voucher - Hive pair). I will adjust the strategy as I go.
Just in case you need something extra, check this cool Zealy contest - lots of Hive and other prizes - check it out!**
