# A Season of Looking Ahead - Splinter Stats Season 71 Report Card
What's up Battle Mages? Last season we looked back at some of the cards that will either make me consider playing Wild Format, or I will miss dearly if I choose to go Modern only. This season, it was a time for me to look forward at what lies ahead as we anticipate the arrival of several new cards and more importantly, some major changes to the reward system promised by the developers in the coming month.
|Rating||2773 - Silver I|
|Ratio (Win/Loss)||1.58 (323/204)|
|Tournament Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||Infinity (10/0/0)|
|Tournament Reward Placements||5/9|
As expected, my performance in season 71 is similar to last season's. My highest rating was slightly lower but my winrate ratio is significantly higher. I also broke my longest winning streak from 13 to 19 (it has since been broken again but that's a story for next season report), and perhaps more noticeably, I finished much higher making the top 100 for the first time at 97.
Despite these improvements in my overall performance, my game hasn't really changed much for the past several seasons. I've still been playing in Silver, using mostly my own cards majority of which consisted of Chaos Legion and Reward cards, plus the free to use starter Untamed common and rare cards.
There's no incentive for me to go higher because the current rewards aren't worth it. I don't desire to fight in the leaderboards, my collection isn't up for it both level-wise and the lack of access to most of the key cards to be successful there. It's evident by now I don't want to rent, and buying cards right now is out of the question due to my current financial status.
This lack of progress in my game is making it stale for me, and coupled with the lower earnings, it's become hard to be motivated to play. I'd probably earn more if I were to just rent out all my cards and not play. But that's no fun and I still enjoy playing so I won't resort to that.
Hopefully though, the announcement of several changes in the game as well as new things to look forward to help the game steer to the right direction. I'm not sold on the idea of removing the daily quest and will reserve judgement when we get more details or even when it gets implemented but the announcement of 10-12 new reward cards have got me excited. It's always good to get cards for free and we've all been getting tired of the current reward cards so these additional cards will certainly make it more interesting, especially since they hinted the possibility of cards having abilities intended to be part of Riftwatchers that will make their first appearance. Seeing that the next Chaos Legion airdrop cards are not gonna be here anytime soon, these new rewards will tide us over until those Legendary summoners start to drop.
The reduced earnings when using starter cards to deal with the bot problem will affect me slightly because like I mentioned, I'm using some of the Untamed ghost cards. So maybe I will have to go back to renting a few in order to not get penalized as some of them have become integral to the current meta like the Unicorn Mustang. But hopefully, I can just buy them soon, even just level 1's.
I do like the update of not showing the name of your opponent, to prevent win-trading, and also usage of other tools that give some advantage.
More details about SPS validators have come to light as well and hopefully, all of these will help propel the game forward and ultimately be catalyst to increase the value of our assets again. Let's wait and see. Hope and pray.

Terrible tournament performances. Like last season, I didn't join much except for the N00b Modern Kobold which almost guarantees receiving pay out more than the entry fee.

No legendaries this season. One single gold foil common and one regular foil epic for the entire season are the highlights. Also a drought for two seasons now when it comes to Chaos packs.
🟣 Rental Report
Similar to the previous season, I rented out a few extra CP I had during End of Season and earned a good bit of DEC for the last two days of the season.

Slowly going back to 2000 staked SPS, and I mean very slowly. I had to sell my Gold Foil Ifrit Rising to help pay them bills and that resulted to a noticeable decrease in my daily SPS Airdrop.
It's been a few months of struggle, many may have left, but those who remain and continue to believe in the game are looking forward to these news with hope.
The past couple of Town Halls seem to have been met more positively than the lot before them. For me personally, while I have my reservations (I fear that removing the daily quests may result in making the game feel grindy), I welcome these changes because something needs to be done to resolve the underlying issues affecting the game economy. It is good that they finally are addressing these issues and that is already a major step in the right direction. And if they get the new reward system right, maybe, I'd find my motivation again to go back to playing Gold instead of chilling in Silver, or even aim higher like Diamond which I've only ever reached once since I started playing. I do miss playing with more card abilities to manage and if they nail it and the rewards will be worthy, I may reconsider changing the way I've been playing since December.
