Splinterlands Social Media Challenge! Buy Chaos Legion Packs or buy Cards in the Marketplace?


Hi Everyone!
As a new @splinterlands gamer I’ve been enjoying ranked battles for almost 2 weeks now and the game is so much fun!

I’ve now reached 400 Rating points a couple of times and was very excited to go up a league level to Bronze II and start winning DEC: Kching!!!! but then I realize that I need 1000 power to unlock this level! 🤦‍♂️

I’ve been winning a few cards by completing the daily quests and reached a wooping 45 Power! 🎉 if my calculations are right, at this rate it’s going to take more than 9 months to unlock Bronze II I was hoping to get rich much more faster !LOL


My Skimpy card collection after 2 weeks!

So I’ve decided to invest on cards but turns out there is so many options: I could buy Chaos Legion packs for $4 each or I could buy cards individually in the market. I wonder what’s the best option?

You can buy Chaos Packs at the Splinterlands Store

I understand that buying a pack is a bit of a gamble but what is the average power you get in one pack?

If I buy cards directly in the market what’s the best strategy? Should I buy cards from the same Element or buy a bit of everything? Which are the bests cards a newbie like me should buy?.... So many questions!

The Splinterlands Market!

If all the cards available in the Splinterlands market aren't enough, it looks like you can also purchase them in other markets outside the hive: You can find links to Peakmonsters, MonsterMarket and CardAuctionZ on the market Page. What are the differences between all these marketplaces? Something I need to investigate a bit further.

I Undertand that you can also rent cards which is a cheaper option than buying them but I'm not sure rented cards increase your power or if you can only use them to play battles.

I'm sure the answers to all these questions depend on many other variables but if there's any experienced player that reads this post, your input is much appreciated!

If you are a newbie like me and have other questions that you want answered please leave then in a comment below and I will try to find the answers.

In the mean time see you in the battlefield!

Hi there!

In short some answers: From the cards epics and legendaries are a big help to have. Reward cards are the cheapest and very good. Peakmonsters site is super useful. Rent cards and try them out before buying them. In-print cards are cheaper than older editions, while they are still competitive. Buying specific cards is usually more efficient than buying packs. Still buying some packs from within the game gives you a chance of: 1) getting really lucky with the pull and 2) makes you eligible for airdropped cards. Plus it is always fun opening packs. Look around splinterlands community, check out some streamers, some give good suggestions for beginners/deck building. Also the game becomes much more fun in silver league.

I have delegated you some cards that give you enough power for bronze 2, have fun using them. I will leave them delegated for one week.

Cheers! and !PIZZA


Thank you so much @white-walker-13 for the tips and for the card delegation! (another source for power that I didn't know about)
I will definitely put them to good use.
