Recent Updates

Release Notes - 2021-12-01

We've rolled the following platform updates out today around 16:00 EST.

  • The market was updated to significantly reduce the lag between buying and listing a card and seeing those changes reflected in the market.
  • Top Battles makes its triumphant return to Splinterlands. Now with even more speed!
  • A lot of significant performance updates to the Leaderboard.

We've been working hard since that point tracking down several cases of issues on the market with gold foil cards specifically. Based on these issues, we're currently in the process of disabling several aspects of the market performance updates for the evening so we can regroup in the AM with a fresh set of eyes. We'll keep you posted.

While we're disappointed this is the result, we are excited for the other updates and glad to say we're seeing the Top Battles return to a working state.

Thanks for your continued patience with us as we gear up for the launch next week of Chaos Legion! We're geeking out with excitement just like you are to see those beautiful new cards make their show.

Great to see you guys are publishing your own summaries of the Town Halls. Very helpful!


They have been for quite some time - they were just published by brybro27 for a while.

I was always curious why so many other folks post straight up summary posts of the AMA, since there's already a super comprehensive one every week (besides rewards of course.)


Really? Lol, I totally I have missed them so far. :D


I still create them, Splinterlands just post them now 😅


Way to go support, solving more tickets than were created! Here comes Chaos Legion! I like the wallpaper with the dragon on it, pretty!


i can smell, Chaos Dragon!!




Great contents, always read AMA, lovely games!


Wow I'm looking for Campaign mode - PvE 🧡
