First couple of days at Splinterlands
The first word I could think of as I am writing this is "Frustration". I am not entirely sure who will see this as this is my first day at Hive blog likewise and I am uncertain about its inner workings.
That said, the first I've seen of Splinterlands was when my friend showed it to me. He enticed me with promises of a balanced matchmaking, and a balanced combat. Sure enough, I was excited.
When I had finally tried it out, I had found out that there was indeed merit in his promises. The combat is balanced, and the matchmaking is even better than a certain MOBA game's cough cough. That's not to say that they are comparable, but the matchmaking in this game had been significantly far more enjoyable for me.
But why was "Frustration" the word that came to mind if I were satisfied with both of these aspects of Splinterlands?
It isn't frustration at the game, but rather, that I could not seem to improve yet. Which I think will soon be mended, throughout my plays. I seem to be missing something important that could help me improve. I do not know what it is; maybe it's a strategy, maybe it's a mindset, an approach to the combat, or the limitations of my selections of cards so far.
With that in mind, reader, I would like to ask you to give a struggling player like me some tips and tricks, maybe a viewpoint or an approach to try, as I am at my wit's end.
