Missed Opportunity or just lower profit margins.

I am not sure when the new news of vouchers being required still after pre-sale came out but if I think about it now. I am stupid.

Somewhere I read that vouchers will be required for the first 2million packs... Glancing at the below image, I think that would be very difficult seeing as there is a million max and each pack costs 1 voucher.

Anyway, whether it is too late I have decided I will be needing 100 vouchers. Now I am very aware that the voucher to pack ratio has been broken beyond repair. So the whole buy a voucher then a pack and sell the pack manoeuvre is not realistic in the least anymore.

Now we buy to keep. Since the prices are controlled for the most part by those who have the most, and fair enough. The vouchers will possibly keep climbing, and everyone will be forced to buy at whatever price the biggest holders set.

They do not require to sell, they sell because they want to. For the most part, some bought early and there was a pretty cheap period where if you could stack vouchers it would have been a good buy. Possibly the deviation from pack cost difference is merely that, recouping costs.

Anyway enough musing on shit I don't know. I do not that I have decided having 110 packs of chaos would be the ideal scenario for me in the long run.

Since I play actively - mostly - whether I keep the packs or open them both will pay for themselves.

Keeping the packs, means 550 cards. So at 0.10 a card with the worst of luck and possibly lower for some with the increased dump truck supply. I would be paying at current prices $2400 for something that is only worth $55...

Sounds like the crypto thing to do.

If I really wanted to have nothing I could resell that at the current pack price and get back $880.

Then have no packs or vouchers.

Be out $1520 with no way of getting the money back either.

So with that logic, I have decided to pay $2400 give or take a kidney, depending on the whales' wishes. Go forth and hope I do not have shit luck and maybe my packs, if I am able to purchase them will be more than $55 worth.

Heck, I am hoping that in a year they might just be $2400 worth and have earned me some nice working profits in the meantime.

I saw what you did with the Eth... lol you are a handful

I don't think I am touching anything splinterland right now, I had my chance and I blew it. I will let my brother handle the rest. Was thinking about playing some chaos packs until the voucher thing. I just cant risk it

There will be plenty chance to get packs later at the standard prices, I think for many unless you getting vouchers for staking it is fine to wait and depending on post pre-sale costs I have no reason to buy packs with vouchers.

Loved meeting you today in the Hivefest metaverse @Nonsowrites. I am only sorry my technical stuff was playing up at the time. I did switch over to PC afterwards and that was so much better! Hopefully get a chance to chat tomorrow :-)

Was tempted to sell my vouchers (I'm getting 3 in total) but the possibilities of what's inside the packs make me giddy. It's a win either way

I think it can be, some patience I guess. The main gamble might be opening and not getting great cards or holding and the packs price way higher in a year.

Hi,
the first million packs will be bought by the normal distribution of vouchers (30 days at 33,333 vouchers a day). The next to million could only be bought with vouchers too, but the voucher distribution gets doubled.

Ah, I thought maybe I remembered wrong. My main concern really is will vouchers now pump purely for the pre-sale rush, then probably go half the price for the next million and a half packs ... Although I guess I am concerned for no reason because regardless I am going to try get my pre-sale packs since the only real value to the voucher system is in receiving the airdrops. Once I have that theree is no reason not to wait for normal pack sales but that might be months. Thanx for the correction.
