Chaos Legion General Sale & Volume Discount Details

avatar

As we have previously announced in this post, the Chaos Legion edition is planned to be released on Wednesday, December 8th, 2021, and at that time another 2M packs will be made available for purchase and will still require VOUCHER tokens for each pack purchased just like in the presale.

At that time the distribution of VOUCHER tokens will resume at double the rate of the presale so that 2M VOUCHER tokens will be distributed over 30 days. Once the 30 days has ended and an additional 2M VOUCHER tokens have been distributed, the VOUCHER tokens will continue to be distributed at a rate of 20k per day for the forseeable future, and will have a variety of uses within the game going forward.

Once the second phase ends, then the general sale will begin, which we expect to be sometime in January of 2022. In the general sale, VOUCHER tokens will NOT be required for pack purchases, but they will still be required in order to receive bonus packs for bulk purchases.

Please see the following post for more details about the Chaos Legion sale phases and the plans for VOUCHER token distribution: Chaos Legion Updates & Official Doctor Blight Reveal

Airdrops

The Doctor Blight limited edition promo card airdrop will ONLY be available to players who purchased Chaos Legion packs during the presale period in which the first 1M packs were available for sale.

In the second sale period where an additional 2M packs are available for sale and pack purchases still require VOUCHERS, two more cards (yet to be revealed) will be airdropped after each subsequent 1M packs are sold to players who have purchased Chaos Legion booster packs before that time (including all purchasers during the presale period).

Once the general sale begins, then a new card will be revealed and airdropped to pack purchasers each time another set of 1M packs are sold.

In order to attempt to prevent a huge rush to buy packs when the general sale begins, we will make it so that ALL packs purchased in the first 24 hours of the general sale will be eligible for all of the remaining airdrops.

For example, if over 3M packs are sold in the first 24 hours of the general sale, then there will be three new cards airdropped to pack purchasers, and EVERY PACK purchased in those first 24 hours will be eligible for ALL THREE of the airdrops.

This means that there is no rush to get packs quickly when the general sale starts - everyone will have 24 hours to purchase their packs and receive all of the same benefits as players who purchased earlier.

Additional Bulk Purchase Deals & Promotions

While anyone who makes a larger pack purchase in a single transaction through the Splinterlands website during the general sale will get the opportunity to receive free bonus packs (provided they have enough VOUCHER tokens), the Splinterlands team is also extending additional bonuses and promotions to groups and organizations that are looking to make very large purchases and/or bring in large groups of new players to the game.

Any one-time purchases of $100,000 USD or more will receive:

  • 1 Chaos Legion pack for every $4 spent
  • 5 Legendary Potions charges for every $4 spent

Example: A $200,000 purchase will receive 50,000 Chaos Legion packs + 250,000 Legendary Potion charges

Any one-time purchases of $1,000,000 USD or more will receive:

  • 1 Chaos Legion pack for every $4 spent
  • 5 Legendary Potion charges for every $4 spent
  • 5 Alchemy Potion charges for every $4 spent

Example: A $1,000,000 purchase will receive 250,000 Chaos Legion packs + 1,250,000 Legendary Potion charges + 1,250,000 Alchemy Potion charges

Please note that anyone taking advantage of these bulk purchase deals will still need to spend VOUCHER tokens in order to receive any bonus Chaos Legion packs with their purchases.

Guild Purchase Deals

Splinterlands is also actively looking to incentivize third-party blockchain-based / play-to-earn gaming guilds to join our ecosystem. We are looking for guilds with large, active player bases looking to purchase the required amount of cards or packs to make 250+ bronze decks or 30+ gold or higher level decks.

We are ideally looking for groups that have raised investment either through token sales or venture capital rounds, have relatively large player bases, and that are willing to put time and energy into introducing their players to Splinterlands, training their players on how to play the game, and share our values of spreading peace, prosperity, and freedom.

If you have a guild that matches this description we're offering the following bonuses to entice you to come here. We will create a custom package for your guild with one or more of the following bonuses based on the guild size and other factors:

  • 1 Tract of land (100 plots) from Splinterlands' promotional reserves, while supplies last. (Approx. market value: $80k)
  • Splinterlands will purchase a max-level guild Town Hall building, or equivalent amount of DEC spread across multiple in-game guilds. (Approx. market value: $40k)
  • Provide Summoner's Spellbook promo codes with referral bonuses tied to the main guild account. Guilds can gift these promo codes to the people they recruit to the game and will receive 5% of the lifetime purchases of those players as affiliate rewards. Please note that affiliate rewards are only available to purchases made in the Splinterlands in-game shop using Credits.

As mentioned above, the exact bonuses and amounts will be determined on a case-by-case basis for each guild based on the amount of value they will be bringing to the ecosystem either through direct purchases, new players, or other things.

Splinterlands is also open to accepting third-party guild tokens as payment! Once again, this will be on a case-by-case basis for each guild token based primarily on the current market availability and liquidity of the token.

How to Participate

Anyone who is interested in taking advantage of either of the above two offers should contact @aggroed (aggroed#5133) in the Splinterlands Discord Server.

Anyone looking to participate in the guild promotion will be required to provide identification and complete an interview process to evaluate the guild and the opportunity.

Splinterlands reserves the right to deny access to this program to anyone for any reason.

Availability & Transparency

Chaos Legion booster packs will be distributed to purchases of the above program within the first 24 hours of the general sale going live, which is currently expected to be in January 2022. All funds must be paid to Splinterlands in full before the general sale starts in order to receive Chaos Legion booster packs.

No more than half of the total Chaos Legion booster packs available in the general sale (6M packs) will be available for the bulk purchase program. The remaining 6M packs, plus any packs not sold as part of the bulk purchase program, will be available for purchase through the Splinterlands website when the general sale begins.

Participation in the bulk purchase progam for the total of up to 6M Chaos Legion booster packs will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Splinterlands will publish the total amount of packs sold through the bulk purchase program in order to provide full transparency to the community.

Get Packs Before the General Sale

We highly encourage anyone who is concerned about not being able to get Chaos Legion booster packs during the general sale to take advantage of the voucher system in order to obtain their packs earlier.

3 million Chaos Legion packs (20% of the total) are being made available for purchase ahead of the general sale using the voucher system specifically so that we can ensure that all players have an equal opportunity to get the packs that they want and not have to worry about a quick sell-out. Additionally, purchasers during this period will have access to the first two airdrop cards that will not be available to purchasers during the general sale.

While VOUCHER token prices have been relatively high on third-party markets to date, the tokens will be awarded at double the rate during the second phase starting on December 8th, and, more importantly, VOUCHER tokens can be earned for free simply by staking SPS tokens in the game.


Stay tuned for more updates from the Splinterlands!

Free Potions is a much better solution than additional price breaks. This is a great solution to what could have been a really sticking point for some players. Thank you for the hard work you put into this project. I cant wait for Chaos Legion!

I like how you guys are transparent. It gives you feedback which allows you to adjust and refine your policies and programs. I'm thrilled that EVERYONE will have 24 hrs to buy packs and still get the bonus of the airdrops, plus you still enabled the big boys to show up and get some white-glove treatment. Good solution and very much looking forward to Dec 8th!!! Thanks SPL team!!!

I think that this sounds fair for all participants in the splinterlands ecosystem. There are some good deals there but existing players can take advantage of then at 100k. Their are incentives for bulk purchases for guils and a massive incentive with the tract and guild set up. Generous but if you can bring thousands of players in as a group probably worth it.

THanks for the transparency to the community and the great work so far. Can't wait to get my chaos packs and with 6m going into the general sale will be plenty for everybody that is ready to go on day 1.

A solid plan of action which tries to bring fairness for most of the Splinterlands players. Yeah, will not be easy for those that didn't invest a dime, but if they stretch a bit and purchase Vouchers and Chaos Legion packs these will pay out in the long term. It is just a matter of strategizing.

The remaining 6M packs, plus any packs not sold as part of the bulk purchase program, will be available for purchase through the Splinterlands website when the general sale begins."

The plan is still that they get credits and if the players buy 51% of the remaining packs first, those 6m aren't there anymore? Or are those 6M reserved for guilds regardless of whether the remaining packs sell out or not?

I read it as "first come/first served, so if the 6M packs available for bulk purchase aren't sold by the time the 6M packs available to individuals are sold out, then the individuals will be able to start buying from the 6M and the bulk buyers will only be able to buy whatever is left.

Very clear. Well done! You guys have been doing a great job on transparency and keeping people informed as to how this all works. Much appreciated!! Congrats on the success so far and, for the most part, flawless delivery. I can only imagine the amount of work you all have had to do behind the scenes with the massive explosion of users. 😃

One thing I might suggest: if and when the 6M public sale packs sell out and the 6M available for bulk have not, you may consider carving it out piecemeal. In other words, if individual sales hit the 6M and there are 2.5M packs left on the bulk side, you may want to just offer up 500k or 1M to the public and reduce the other side by the same amount. I am just picturing a scenario where it will look like there are 2.5M packs on sale to the public and then in the blink of an eye, they're gone because you sold them to a bulk purchaser. Something like that happening, while technically being something people should realize is a possibility, might create some headaches and angst among the "public" if it happens all at once. Just a thought. You guys certainly don't need my help on any of this. 🤣

Keep up the great work!!!

Assuming you know in advance how many bulk purchasers there will be, will you let us regular players know in advance? At least a ball-park figure on how many millions are going in bulk in that first 24 hours.

Just so we're better able to judge our phase 2 buy-in.

I really dont like the idea of 6 millon packs being left out of the general sale for guild and bulk buys. Especially the catering to guilds part since I really doubt their ability to bring over any sustancial amount of players but I dont doubt their ability to make easy money so I feel like we will see a lot of card and pack fliping from them. I guess only time will tell but I kind of feel its a bad desition that will backfire eventually.

I liked the part about the 24 hours buy and the airdrop I dont know if it will be enough to make packs last at least 24 hours but its a good measure

That is a valid point, but keep in mind, that the 6M packs will be offered to active guilds. These are for the most part players, who would have purchased big chunks of the packs anyway and this way, they can pool their resources. And on the general sale release day, the shop is not overrun with those people but only us ordinary users, who purchase a few to a few hundred packs.
The queue will be much shorter that way in my opinion. Whales and big guilds will have their fair share and money is not infinite. I guess, there will be plenty for us on the first day of the general sale and we still get the promo cards for the other 6M if we purchase in the 24 hours of release.
Seems fair to me.

I play axie and I know those guilds and what kind of "players" they bring... The issue I see is that they dont bring players they bring "schoolarships". The main difference between those is that schoolarships only invest once or when its absolutely necesary. After that inicial investment they just extract money from the game. They work the same as bots. When you make it really cheap for them to enter then is a no brainer for them.
Of course you can argue that those players are not actually bots and might like the game and reinvest with their own accounts. Well thats true but unlikely (on a grand scale). Or at least I think there are better ways to atract those users. You can do promotions for big youtubers and that kind of stuff and will probably have the same results.
I have no doubt that the active daily users will increase but they wont bring money into the ecosystem wich is what every crypto game needs.
Those are my main concerns with this, I saw it happend on other crypto games, even in axie. In fact those guilds are not investing this money in axie because axie its not what it used to be in terms of profit.

Your point is valid tho. I think we will have the opportunity to buy the packs we want on the first day. Im not that much worried about that (only a little heh).
But I still think is a bad move overall and wont help the game, quite the opposite. I really would like that the few assets I have keep their value somehow, I dont want what happend to axie to happend to splinterlands.

I think, I know what you mean and that is a valid point. Let's hope, devs keep an eye on those players or on any kind of abuse. Well, abuse is a harsh word, but you're right. When players only extract value from the game, because they can pay monthly bills with that money, it is difficult for SL to grow further.

The remaining 6M packs, plus any packs not sold as part of the bulk purchase program, will be available for purchase through the Splinterlands website when the general sale begins."
So it's basically still privat sale just with another name? So how does it work with air drops then? 6M packs won't get on the Splinterlands website if they get bought by whale guild? But how is this working? Like if i buy on day 1 am i still eligible for these 6 air drops. Technically they got bought days before.
Still don't like the privat sale. Would be ok to give the potions for big credit purchases so they can buy the packs themselves like everybody else. This way it's still privat and there are still 6M packs less for active players. That's just bad!

But nice try with the name change. Very transparent... lol

Keep in mind, that 9M sold already at that point and mostly to active players and money is not infinite. Those players had to purchase these 9M packs too and most certainly are satisfied by then.

If not, 6M packs on the first day of the general sale, my elbows are well-trained :o).

Thanks for being transparent. Good move with putting a cap on the the non private (private) sale of packs. I do think yous are handing out free cash when its not needed. The above "extra" rewards are insane. The 5/10% bonus paid in potions is reasonable and a very smart way to give a bonus. Interested guilds would likely been on their way to Splinterlands regardless. Smart on them for getting themselves extra on top of what they would of likely spent anyways.

Thanks for all yous do and for always handing out more to the players then we likely should get. I'm not sure if there is another company in the world that is structured in such a way. Yous have built something very interesting that goes beyond being just a game.

I love that we finally have some clarity regarding the bulk purchases. I am very happy with how the splinterlands team was able to find a middle ground between offering white glove service to big purchasers, and protecting players who want to make first day purchases during the general sale. the only question i still have is, will there be a break between the 2 million pack voucher required sale and the voucher-less general sale? I am hoping for a couple days between with a specific start time so I can make sure to get my order in, as apposed to not knowing that the 2 million mark was hit and the general sale starting immediately. So excited!

I'm pretty sure, that is for the aforementioned guilds, who pool their money or professional guilds from other games, who want to buy in and make splinterlands another e-sports game. That is pretty exciting to be honest.
I was very critical of the hush-hush deals and the lack of communication before. With this, I have no problem at all.

Thank you very much. That was the roadmap, I hoped for a few weeks ago. I appreciate the transparency effort and measures to ensure, everyone is well served.

Even if I'm not getting any packs, because I didn't klick the buy button quickly enough, this way I know, there were no secret deals behind our backs.

The fact, that active guilds or guilds-to-be are getting bulk-purchase-deals is fair enough. It will hopefully increase the active player-base and potentially decrease bots, which would be a good thing for all of us.

Thank again for the new policy and the roadmap. For transparency-sticklers like me, this is very important.

This clearly contradicts your earlier statement that only pre-sale purchasers would be eligible for the airdrop benefits. So what's the point of buying pre-sale if in the general sale everyone will be able to have the same benefits? Dr Blight + two cards only?

My head hurts when I read this...

As much as I understand that you want to avoid that the packs are sold out to early (what I appreciate), I think all these numbers and conditions are waaaaaay too complicated...

I think there would be other and better options for a fair distribution of packs:
for example there could be a limit of daily pack purchases per user.

This would be fair and understandable for everyone.
