Splinterlands Strategies: A TWO year wait..., where is Land?
I was so tempted to name this post, 'Where the FUCK is Land'. That could have been a little strong.
With SplinterFest being over, I hope the Splinterlands team can get back to delivering what we want.., and not what they want.
...'it looked grand, more so than HiveFest 7. Who's bigger.. HIVE or Splinterlands?'...
I spotted a lot of images of LAND, that's what WE want but have not heard about the dialogue behind what was shown. Please release some footage, under the @splinterlands account. We are dying to hear, besides see.
For us non-mortals who didn't attend it's been a little softly softly regarding information.
If you think I am giving Splinterlands a hard time then you’d be right. I am both their biggest fan and harshest critic.
Since November 2018, I have been playing and investing in this game. I am what you call an OG player. Every day I collect my SPS, DEC, and VOUCHER and plough them back into the game.
...'I have a large stake in Splinterlands, and shitloads of NFT's. I care about where it's going'...
Madness you say. Yes, probably but one doesn’t bail out in a bear market.
The LAND delay is a big gripe. I wasn’t one of those visionaries that managed a TRACT for $1200 or a REGION for a measly $8500.
“Fuck that, they are expensive”, I thought at the time. I remember the post that was flagged (downvoted) by a certain prolific antagonist of those days.
For the rest of us, we mostly sat up. DEC started to go crazy and I pondered not wanting to go with the hype. I don't tend to follow the herd.
Eventually, I conceded to buying 11 PLOT via the Team Possible consortium. They are still holding my virtual assets and as a Top Five Guild, I have complete faith in them when the time comes to redeem these PLOTS.
This was TWO years ago. TWO years is a long time in the crypto world. Entire Metaverses have been created within that period.
We are starting to see concept art. For crying out loud will you get on with the thing that we all want the most..., LAND?
I know Splinterlands will harp on about the sheer amount of content they are dishing out. Yes, they are, some of it questionable in my opinion.
Rift Watchers is great. I purchased 2000 packs + 400 extras. That's $10000 worth of SPS and VOUCHER blown. There's no question I am a fan of this game and believe in its future.
I check frequently to see if the 800,000 pack target has been breached. It's always a disappointment. Are they too expensive; is the mandatory VOUCHER requirement too much?
It’s probably neither. The fact is I believe there is little new blood coming into the game. Much of the reward schema is targeted to the Diamond and Champions leagues.
What do I suggest? How about some tutorials?
A friend of mine, @steddyman used to be an avid Magic: The Gathering player. He has a stash of Splinterlands cards but after a year still has not fully grasped the mechanics of Splinterlands.
As a veteran Magic: The Gathering player who bought Legends packs back from the stores in 1994, I personally find Splinterlands a lot simpler. Yet he doesn’t.
Can we make it easier for newbies to get going? It’s not friendly at all. If you want those packs to sell then dangle a longer carrot.
‘Splinterlands is an expensive game.’
This is another gripe I had from @steddyman. I can’t deny this claim, and if you want to get even in the Silver league it’s going to cost you some.
I was lucky; I was there before the explosion of August 2021. People went crazy, but it was then too late.
Is it too late now?
...'when Rebellion is released, Legendary Summoners like these will be the new powerhouses in Modern, don't overlook them'...
It will never be like the Untamed days again. I sold those packs for $1 each, lots of them. They dropped like candy in chests. Any one of them could have contained a Kitty.
Who doesn’t want a Kitty?
It’s not too late, and some of the newer in-print cards will be powerhouses one day, but this team needs to stop slipping with those dates and deliver.
LAND is what many of us want. Not Tower Defence, Not American Football.. LAND. I hope you can hear me loud and clear @splinterlands.
