πŸ‘€ = See Eye Candy!

Chaos Legion πŸ‘€:

  • Pre-sale is on track to go live on October 18th
    • Started getting the bridges from Hive Engine and to WAX ready
  • Top 6 purchasers will be allowed to design their own Chaos Legion Legendary summoner
  • Teams goal is to make the new promo card awesome and highly sought out after
  • Chaos Legion cards should include a few new abilities added to the game
  • Once released, the starter deck will be the common & rares from Untamed and Chaos Legion
  • All bonus packs given out will take out of the 15 million supply
  • Only purchased packs from in-game will count towards the 13 monster airdrops
    • Packs purchased from other markets don't count
    • You don't need to hold the packs once purchased, can open or sell after

Pre-Sale Clarifications:

  • To receive the 20%, 15%, and 10% bonus amounts, you need to do buy as a single transaction
  • All other pre-sale rewards will accumulate as you buy
  • Bonus packs will count towards all pre-sale benefits (title, Maverick status, promo card)
  • There will be a separate leaderboard page for Chaos Legion pre-sale buyers
  • Legionnaire title will be worth the same as the Untamed & Explorer titles (100k SPS points)
  • Chaos Legion packs and the Legionnaire title will count towards the SPS airdrop immediately

Vouchers:

  • First voucher airdrop will start on the October 18th (time is still TBD)
  • Vouchers will be distributed as tokens and can be received as fractions
  • One whole voucher will be required for 1 Chaos Legion pack
  • Vouchers will not be completely useless after Chaos Legion pre-sale
    • Current plan is still to require vouchers past pre-sale for a bit (wait for official announcement)
      • Goal is to give the SPS token as much utility as possible
      • Metering out public sale will affect teams income so this decision doesn't benefit team
    • Players will see other use cases for vouchers in the near future as well

SPS:

  • SPS used to buy Chaos Legion packs will be used as corporate money
  • No plans for SPS burn mechanisms currently or in whitepaper
    • But team would like to add one or more in the future
  • Doesn't matter how long you have your SPS staked before Chaos Legion pre-sale
  • SPS for Land Expansion is still to be determined
    • Airdrop for land owners will be boring
    • Team wants to use it more as in incentive when land is released
  • Team wants to release a post soon with more details about SPS rewards
    • Whitepaper shows everything starting at the same time, not the case obviously

Rentals & PeakMonsters:

  • Peakmonsters is developing a rental auto-renewal process
  • Peakmonsters is developing a rental bid feature
    • Can make a rental bid for every single monster
      • Example: 5 DEC/day for a 1 BCX Lorna Shine
    • Or you can make a rental bid for collection power
      • Example: 300 DEC/day for 100k collection power per day

Scaling & Dev Work:

  • Hoping the end of season today will be smooth
    • This will be a constant improvement until end of season runs perfectly
  • Still ramping up the new developers
    • Will be dedicated to different pieces of the game
    • Land, gameplay, animations, etc...
  • Matt doesn't know everything anymore 😱
    • Game is growing too much for Matt to be a part of all developments
    • Good sign of healthy growth

Land:

  • Team is still super excited to be working on the land expansion soon
    • Chaos Legion release is first priority
  • Once land is released, there will be items and spells created
    • Items and spells will add an additional turn to battling

Wild & Modern Ranked Format:

  • Once Chaos Legion is released, Wild & Modern ranked formats will be released
    • Wild = Any cards can be used
    • Modern = Newer cards (Untamed, Chaos Legion, Dice)
      • Any card frame that looks like Untamed or Chaos Legion will be allowed in Modern
    • Makes the playing field more even for newer players
  • Reward pool will be doubled
  • Players can play in both formats
  • Will be separate leaderboards for both formats
  • Not planning on decreasing collection power requirements for either format

Network Bridges:

  • ETH bridge is created, just disabled due to insanely high gas fees
  • Want to bridge to as many other networks as possible in the future
  • WAX & HIVE are the main bridges currently

Essence Orbs, Azmare Dice & Riftwatchers:

  • These are similar card packs but with fewer unique cards in the sets
  • Can/Were only be bought with DEC
  • DEC gets burned if purchased
    • Adds value to all token holders (all players)
    • Team gets zero income from these packs
  • Essence Orbs & Azmare Dice are all sold out, Riftwatchers is next to be released
    • Riftwatchers will be worked on right after Chaos Legion

Affiliate Program:

  • Any Chaos Legion pack purchases with credits will count towards the affiliate program
  • Team is looking into maybe allowing all types of purchases count towards affiliate program

Tome Of Chaos πŸ‘€:

  • New stories posted every Friday at around Noon EST each week of pre-sale
    • Added to the Chaos Legion mythos
    • Will release multiple NFTs that will be associated with each story
    • Stories will tell the history of Splinterlands & Chaos Legion

Hey Guys @splinterlands ,

Just wanted to double check on something :
So ... one doesn't have to buy 1000 packs in 1 transaction to get the Legionnaire title?

i.e. Someone buys 500 packs , then another 500 later during the presale ... they would still get the Legionnaire Title?

I appreciate the summary of the AMA.
Well, to be honest, It helps when you are too busy to attend the meeting or watch the replay.
