Next AMA - Friday, December 31st, 10AM Eastern (2PM UTC)


I'm very happy to hear that you're focusing on making the game more accessible from a UI/UX stance. I feel that the game is currently being held back by some poor design and flow choices. I personally know of a few people whom I tried to introduce to the game, but did not join because it just didn't look appealing. Hopefully this will change soon.


Looking forward to seeing the coming developments and where the game goes. One question I had was regarding Riftwatchers. I have been seeing a lot of people talk about it the last several months, but I do not recall seeing a post about it. Could you explain what it is or is there a post talking about it? Thank you in advance!


Riftwatchers will be a mini card set, not a fully set like Untamed or Chaos Legion. Dice was the first mini set and Riftwatchers will follow very closely to that. I believe there were just around 20 cards in Dice, so I'd guess around the same for Riftwatchers.

Although, Dice was mainly made up of summoners for most of the Rare cards. We don't know if that will be the same for Riftwatchers or not.

Also, Dice was only able to be bought by DEC. The price was 3000 DEC ($3 since DEC was mainly $0.001 during the sale) at the time. I'm sure Riftwatchers will be a bit extra, and may require vouchers to be used with it.


„No more land will be minted in the future for Splinterlands”.

Is it as related to land of Praetoria or all land?

You wrote article on 17 October 2020 that there will be more continets to explore.

„In addition to the 150,000 plots on Praetoria that the Wizard's Council has now given to the three exploration companies, they are also believed to control and closely guard additional lands spread across the six continents that, in addition to Praetoria, make up the known Splinterlands world.„

„ It is most important to note, however, that the current 150,000 plots will be the only land ever available on the island of Praetoria, which gives it significant benefits. The Praetorian land is covered in a magical aura that is believed to originate from large dark energy pools located beneath Mount Mox. That means that these "alpha lands" will receive boosts to both crafting and resource harvesting speeds as compared to lands on the other continents.”

I have been playing for couple months and missed chance to buy land at fair price. I hope that there will be presale of second continent fot SPS stakeholders.

Can you clarify land expedition and other continents? Is Praetoria the only continet you planning to mint?


The team continues to state that they don't plan on minting any other land for Splinterlands. I'd say they are about 99% committed to keeping their word on this. Although, they have mentioned that if they were to ever add more land, it wouldn't be in Praetoria, and whatever new land was to be introduced, it wouldn't have nearly the same value/utility as the current land would.

Lastly, the team has mentioned that they do want to create new games beyond Splinterlands that would have a land economy as well. Again, this wouldn't affect Splinterlands in any way though.

Awesome I cant wait for the land update myself, im a new player but since starting in August of this year, ive been able to build up 4 land plots at this point. The first two airdrop cards look awesome also!!


These updates are all very promising! Thanks for keeping your community updated:). The other day, in the discord, I read that travel will be part of land update and great to see that here too. An idea popped up in my head then that maybe some land owners can build inns/lodgings on their plots and concentrate on gathering resources related to food and wood and so on. Players travelling can rest at these inns for the night and pay for lodgings and food.... so many possibilities for land, am quite excited! Will such buildings be allowed to be built?


I've been waiting for land usage for a while. Wish I would have bought more but it's okay. I love the progression of the game. This dedication makes me appreciate the game more!


Pretty exciting stuff! This is what I need to hear to avoid panic selling as my collection value plummets daily. Diamond hands!


With everything pointing to a complete collapse in value under the weight of all the inventory out there and SOOOO much more to come still in CL, I can't believe you intend to go forward with EVEN MORE CARDS with Rift Watchers. Give the new cards a break. It seems like you're mixing up company profit and whale networth with sustainable success. They aren't the same.
