Tuesday Release Update with Investygator

Less Pop-ups

Two options have been added to disable some Tournament and Brawl notifications. They are on by default, meaning you will receive all notifications about Brawls and Tournaments.

Disabling Tournament notifications will hide the Tournament Has Started, Next Round Started, Anytime Tournament Active Reminder, and 15 Minutes Check-in Reminder notifications.

Disabling Brawl notifications will hide the Brawl Start, Fray Assignment Changed, No Opponents Found, and Brawl In-Progress Reminder notifications.

Tech Modernization

The Other Items page will be moved to the Tech Modernization client.

An issue where some Tech Modernization pages were still accessible when the site was in maintenance will be addressed.


Sound will be added to a number of the land displays.

General Updates

Combined the display of the DEC-SPS liquidity pool down to one entry on the UI.

Removed references to card “editions” and replaced them with “sets” in various game texts.

Past Town Hall Summaries


Next Town Hall - Monday, April 24th, 4PM Eastern (8PM UTC)


the summary came really fast the last few times!😍
thank you!


Very unfortunate to see a cyber event hit the company and to the extent that it did. A 6 figure exploit is nothing to make light of. A hack of this extent hitting a more normal company would have been a huge deal in the cyber security and risk management community.

TBH, I'm somewhat concerned that the Splinterlands team doesn't have a sound security tone at the top. Between this actual external attack and the issues with the recent GLS exploit I hope you guys hire a CISO or at least a few experienced security engineers asap. While a CTO is certainly appreciated and needed they often don't have the experience in this space needed specifically.


$180-195,000 total funds that were affected

It means the range of value is between $180 and $195,000?

Or is it between $180,000 and $195,000?


The later to my understanding - between 180-190 k.
