Maximizing your End of Season Rewards
I want to show to you a very simple way to increase your EOS rewards by roughly 65%. All you need is two accounts and maybe some Hive Power for Resource Credits.
End of Season Rewards
The first season of the new rewards I played only on one account and got to about 70 EOS chests. I noticed that I already had something like 50 chests after the first half (7 days) of the season and that during the second half I only made 20ish chests.
This is because the more chests you unlock, the more rshares you need for the next one. The same concept applies to the daily quests. That's why you unlock the first 10 chests rather easily, with a few wins, but then need a quite a bit more to get like 13-15 chests.
Let me show you what I mean:
The current season has 18 days, so halfway point was 9 days. The screenshot was taken after 9 days of playing and as you can see I earned 1,158,890 Season Points which adds up to 58 chests.
Now, if I were to play the rest of the season (another 9 days) on this same account and make another 1,158,890 Season Points I would end up with 2,317,780 Season Points total or 76 chests.
The "strategy" is therefore super simple. You play your first account for the first half of the season (however long a season is, divide it by 2) and make 58 chests for example. Then you delegate all your cards to a second account and play that for the second half of the season, making another 58 chests.
This way you end up with a total of 116 chests instead of 76, which is a profit of 40 chests!
There are some other things to consider and I'll go over all the pro's and con's.
- More Chests in total
- Can play your ECR down below 75% on account 1 after the first half of the season and on account 2 after the second half of the season = more daily chests on these 2 days
- One account can quickly get too high of a rating, making it difficult to win, because of the competition. Starting from a lower rating with the second account mid season will give you a lot of wins and daily chests
- Delegating is easy with PeakMonsters and has no cool down
- SPS staked - unless you have enough SPS to stake on both accounts for them to be eligible in tournaments, you can only play tournaments on one account, therefore for one half of a season
- Strategy might become outdated, when you need SPS staked to earn rewards
- Some cards might be on cool down from playing on the days of switching accounts
- You have to get two accounts to the first league your playing in, to maximize your rewards (I usually rent for the account that has no cards in the first days of the season to get it back to silver after the reset to bronze and then let it sit there until I switch accounts mid season)
- You might need some Hive Power for Ressource Credits to delegate your cards, especially if you have a larger collection
If you have a second account, this is a super easy and not too time consuming method to increase your EOS rewards by a lot. All you need to do is delegate all your cards to another account after the first half of the season and then back at the end.
If you're someone who plays a lot of tournaments and earns SPS through them, but don't have SPS staked on two accounts, you might want to consider if the extra chests are worth not playing in tournaments for half of the season.
None of this is financial advice. These tips are for educational purposes only and might all fall out of date as both Splinterlands and the Crypto Market in general are subject to constant change.
