Starting Splinterlands as a New Player - Day 3

Day 3:

Daily Blurb:
Despite adding $50 in credits, I was still a little shy of the 1,000 CP I needed to advance to Bronze 2. So, I did what any self respecting addict would do. I bought another $10 of my new drug of choice and proceeded to chase the high. I did manage to get into Bronze 2 though, so I should be able to start earning DEC again and hopefully starting seeing a return albiet a slow one. I'm hoping to start stacking some DEC for the general sale of the boosters, assuming they aren't going to require vouchers.

Bought Spellbook: $10
Bought Credits: $50
Bought Credits: $10

Current Balances:
5,044 - Credits
6.911 - DEC
0 - SPS

Total Money Spent: $70
Total Account Value: $59.96 ($54.85 cards, $5.04 credits, $0.07 dec)
Total Profit/Loss: -$10.04

Prior Goal(s) for the Day:

  • Complete Daily Quest for rewards. (completed)
  • Get 1,000 CP (if possible) (completed)
  • Get to Bronze 2 (completed)

Goal(s) for the Day:

  • Complete Daily Quest for rewards.
  • Get $4 in DEC

Goal(s) for the Week:

  • Get an additional 3,950 CP to Unlock Bronze 1
  • Get to Bronze 1

As always, any advice or help is welcomed.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this.

Special thanks to @arkasz for delegating 10 hive to me so I have more RC!
You Sir/Ma'am are a treasure!

Thank You!


What cards did you buy to get the 1000 CP?


A bought a gold version of each of the common CL rewards cards. I also bought enough commons of each to have 2 lvl 2 copies of the normal cards. I probably could have gotten them cheaper had I been a bit more patient, but I wanted to get to Bronze 2 as quickly as possible to start earning DEC again.

Also, I figure Gold versions of the card will hold their value well/better. They typically have/do in normal CCG games, there isn't a reason to think they won't here.

In case you want to post for a longer time then power up 5-10 HIVE in your Hive Keychain. That way you will have always enough RC ;) This will be well worth it on the long run if your posts get recognized.

If you want to get to Bronze 1 / Silver 3 then start to work on this on the 3rd-4th day of the new season.
Why then?
The last days of the season have insane renting costs.
In the first days of the season a lot of players from the higher leagues fall down to the Bronze 3/Silver 1 leagues, so it is very hard to do even the daily quests.
The renting prices are also usually normalizing at that point, and many of the rents I had were not cancelled at the end of the last season (I hope the same will be true this time around as well).

Good luck on your journey.
