My Journey into Splinterlands
A couple months ago, after 3 plus years Hiveing on the chain, I finally decided to jump into Splinterlands. I received some SPS in my HE wallet and with all the growth and hype Splinterlands was experiencing I figured I would jump in and see if "better late than never" would apply. Besides I'm always looking for more ways to derive an income stream. :)
After buying the spell book I started playing a bit with the starter cards to see how things worked. Of course like most noobs I was getting hammered regularly. lol. I finally learned a little strategy and won enough to level up and earn 5 loot chests. After that I figured how to achieve the quests and earned a few loot chests that way.
Next I started exploring Peakmonsters and discovered I could buy sets of cards. I kept checking back and finally found a set of about a hundred that I could afford. I then went about combining cards and adding a few more to start making some rentals available.
After a few more buys and sells and nearing the halfway point of my 3rd season of renting, I now have about 40 cards I rent out. I have been managing the rentals a lot closer this season and after only averaging 60-70 DEC per day I am now over 100. Not sure if it is due to my management of the cards or whether the rental market is just more lucrative right now. :)
I'm looking forward to the end of the season to see how well I might do with the rentals. One thing I would like to be able to do is specify the duration of the rental. Maybe 24 hours, 3 day, 7day. I don't like stopping multi-day rentals early, but when the cards are renting for 50% or more it's hard to pass up on that extra rental revenue.
At any rate I think my main focus will be on rentals for the moment. Hopefully I will be able to add some more cards/packs when Chaos Legions drops. I will probably play enough to get the 5 loot chests and a couple quests. I can't see myself being a dedicated player though and with the recent rule changes for low tier loot chests I may not even play that much. Time will tell. :)
