Splinterlands Strategies: PLOT Tokens, a Bargain at $500 each?

Yesterday I bought some HIVE with USDT that was doing nothing but collecting dust for me on Binance, traded it for SWAP.HIVE and duly bought 3 x Splinterlands PLOT tokens.

How much was that you may ask..., around $1500. Are you mad you say? I could be, just look at my handsome avatar, that says it all.

PLOT’s used to be $20 each but you can’t forget ever seeing that kind of value again and I think they are still undervalued at 25x that price.

Virtual land is going bananas. Look at Alien Worlds and then look a little closer at the cheapest land plot.

Yesterday it was $6700. If the PLOT token 10x’s again it still would be cheaper and unless things have changed Alien Worlds is still a mining game or a fancy faucet.

...'Alien Worlds, a mining game still... it appears'...

Alien Worlds has a massive following and yet in my opinion is a much lesser game (is it really a game?), is less polished, and runs on WAX.

I like WAX, it uses something similar to the HIVE resource credits instead of charging user fees like these other unsuitable gaming chains use (I am looking at you BSC and ETH), so you need to stake a little for your transactions to be approved.

HIVE is still superior, with no annoying pop-ups, and Splinterlands is a much meatier game that does require an element of strategy to win.

As well as that, look at the interface? Nobody can deny it's super polished and looks fantastic.

We have all seen the meteoric rise in Splinterlands since being listed on some exclusive gaming site that evades me for the moment.

It's little wonder HIVE is extremely bullish compared to other tokens even in the face of the massive selloff yesterday.

When land arrives it is going to explode again and the landowners are going to be rubbing their hands together in glee.

...'PLOT is slightly cheaper than yesterday, but I bought before the crash. Story of my life'...

$500 per plot looks like a large gamble but is it? I already had 11 in the bag from the pre-sales but I want more and am willing to pay this price.

My buying won’t stop on the PLOT token and if I see any bargains along the way I will purchase more.

One thing I intend to do is retire from the employment rat race and blockchain gaming is going to help me do just that.

...'will we see tokens on the Playstation network? I think so'...

This is just the beginning. Give it FIVE years and the mainstream games won’t give you just kudos such as Achievements and Trophies. You will be earning tokens that have a tangible value.

There is going to be a lot of money to be made if you have the foresight to see what is on the distant horizon.

I still see Splinterlands going from what it is currently to a behemoth. The team behind it are dedicated, they take their time and we have seen little in the way of disasters in the past.

...'Facebook games are not in short supply. I don't play any of them. I value my time'...

It is only a matter of time before all those Facebook gamers playing those time-wasting games start seeing what they can get for FREE elsewhere.

Very little is the answer, but that is the lure. Even if a small percentage bite they will still be the early adaptors in a gaming world that is ever-changing and evolving.

Wow, I didn't have you pegged as a big playa/investor in splinterlands but so many plots! I skipped that but am now starting to feel a little fomo!

Just 14 Plots so far, not many compared to some. The land release will be a game-changer.

Still seems huge! I wish you luck on this journey, I think it is too rick for my blood! Although getting in at $20 would have been nice

It's true. I have a PS5 that I barely find time for now. Imagine the Assassin's Creed games where you can earn CREED tokens that are tradeable. The future?

Splinterlands has turned from a fun little game into a playground for investors with serious money to put in. Decent cards cost hundreds of dollars now. Okay, so I have done well from it, but that has been largely from playing, although I have spent a bit on cards. I can enjoy the daily SPS airdrop.

It's got to a stage where I wonder if it's worth levelling up my cards. I expect a lot of people will just rent out their cards rather than playing as they can get a nice income from that. I am renting out some from splinters I was not playing much anyway.

I wonder where all the thousands of new players are coming from and how many are bots. People desperate to make a few bucks will probably have to rent cards, but maybe that can be profitable. Recently there are been less cards in daily challenge rewards. If only I could sell those hundreds of potions I have.

The original land sale was a bit of farce as many people did not get a chance to buy any and some of us who did group buys have not got our plots yet.

I am not against you earning from the game. I do think they do a great job on design, but some of the fun has gone out of it. Despite that I do still play a bit each day and help out in my guild's brawls. It has got harder as I don't have some of the newer summoners that seem to give an advantage and it would cost a lot to get them.

Balancing fun and profit is a tricky task.

I don't have my plots either, (outside of these three). I am not playing anymore but will probably start again once Chaos is released. I miss getting the chests as its always a buzz.

Land was still on-sale at the regular price, its just that we all felt cheated as we didn't get in on the deals. Seeing now whats happened its a big regret and kudus to those who had the foresight to buy a TRACT.

I guess we missed out, but so it goes. Some people must be taking a huge profit on their investment without having to play at all. I think the incentives for actually playing should be better.

It may well ignite some fuel into the game. When the NFT's are this valuable.. the incentive to play again somehow returns!

Yes, but for now we are not winning many cards. When they do issue more packs the big investors may buy those in bulk. I'm selling off some of my DEC winnings as I can use the funds on other things.

The ETA for new reward cards is imminent. Those potions I was thinking quite useless for the longest time will come in very useful for the next expansion which I will be going quite deep into.

I'd tend to agree that the price hike has influenced my spending. I've only been levelling up new cards with my in-game earnings whereas when I started a few months ago when 2000 DEC was roughly the same as 2000 credits I was far more willing to throw £20 here and there to level up cards for the Silver rank bracket. I would dread to be a new player starting now as my initial £300-400 spend that got me into silver comfortably is now worth like £3000. Guild improvements have now also gone through the roof in cost. I spent like £50 levelling up my guild's buildings to like level 4 or 5 which was plenty for what we wanted (getting into brawls etc.) but now the price to level up a guild building has increased ten-fold with the DEC price boom.

Yes, everything is so expensive now. I'm not sure what can be done about it.

I would've loved to buy a few lands or even tracts, but at the initial price. Unfortunately, I wasn't around then, and now I have to watch land tokens to explode in value. But all active players will benefit in a way or another from this meteoric rise of land.

Be sure to get some Chaos Legion cards when it's released. I somehow doubt it will take 2 years to sell out like Untamed.

Very interesting! You kind of have me FOMO'ing a bit right now. I mean I have some land coming my way too, but I might want to go out and buy some more. I think I have the spare cash that I could buy a couple if I wanted to. It will be interesting to see how much of a push lands give Splinterlands when they finally launch.

You have seen what happened with Alien Worlds. I know there are other games coming out with land but a game that has been around for 3 years and very established is quite different. I will be watching for bargains.

I definitely agree with your strategy. I bought some land in the beginning but didn't really realize what the PLOT token was. Have to think about making a bigger investment. Those facebook gamers are indeed wasting their time and making facebook the money instead of themselves. I love Splinterlands and am so glad I go into it a couple of years ago. I'm going to make a mortgage payment on the 15th with my staking income from SPS - free money from the free money!

LOL, virtual landowners in a nutshell! We don't need property agents taking a cut and there are no rights for the tenants. They can be evicted at will with 24 hours notice.

Nice strategy dear. I was lucky to buy 1 tract for $1200 with Bat token, leveraging the 20% discount... No plans to sell any time soon. Cheers
