💥 Company Updates 💥

SPS Validator License Sale

  • SPS Foundation is starting the License sale on Wednesday, May 25th (Check out the Node Shop page)
    • None of the sales is going to the Splinterlands company
    • 80% of the SPS is going to be burned, 20% goes to the SPS DAO
  • Licenses will be NFTs so they can be transferred like all other assets
    • Will be included in the non-card market when released as well
  • Will be able to hold multiple licenses under one account and link that account to the licenses
    • That way you won't need one account per license
  • Goal with SPS Validators is to have all assets (DEC, cards, land, etc..) to be mixed into the validator system
  • Outside interest has expressed they'd like to invest $1M+ in Node Validators
    • The presale is geared mainly for current players who already own SPS + Vouchers
  • Presale will only allow 1 license to be purchased per transaction
    • Tranches will allow as many licenses to be bought in one transaction

Development Updates:

  • "This is the summer for Splinterlands where we will be dropping things left and right" - Hardpoint
    • Land development is progressing
    • Ranked Rewards being officially released at the end of this season
    • Modern/Wild will start the testing phases shortly after Ranked Rewards are out
  • Win-trading solution
    • Team automated the process for analyzing patterns between accounts to determine who may be win-trading
    • If players are found to be win-trading, they will be grouped together so that they can't be matched together
  • Team has had some major wins on server performance
    • Team put more rate limiting on servers
    • Team also put out some critical fixes out that has helped reduce server costs by 50%
    • Means the team has more money to put towards other projects/teams

⚡️ Q&A Summary ⚡️

SPS Validator Nodes:

  • Q4 2022 SPS Validators - Mainnet will be live & SPS rewards will begin
  • Q1 2023 Splinterlands Validators - When other assets (DEC, cards, land, etc..) will be moved over to the Validator system


Ranked Rewards:

  • Ideally, you should be getting roughly the same amount of chests in each league you are in
    • If you don't have the levels for higher leagues, you should optimally stay in the league that better suits your levels
  • What is being released next week at the end of season isn't going to be the only changes made to Ranked Rewards
    • Team will constantly monitor the changes and adjust based on analysis and feedback from community
  • Team would like to add a whole bunch of different focuses in the near-future

CL Summoner Airdrops:

  • Airdrop rates are set to still be an additional 25 packs for each Summoner released
    • These numbers won't change even with more packs being opened recently

Riftwatchers / Vouchers:

  • The team will determine how the Riftwatcher sale will be handled once we get closer to the Riftwatchers release
    • Anything could change in the few months leading up to the release so the team wants to adjust as they see best
  • Generally, vouchers will be required for at least a certain part of the sale
    • Still up to debate is whether vouchers will be required for the whole sale or not

Guild Brawls:

  • The team did release changes in regards to brawl rewards a few weeks ago
    • Team is monitoring the changes and analyze how they affected the economy
  • Team is limited in capacity and would love to put more work into Brawls when time allows

Modern/Wild CP Requirements:

  • Team doesn't want to increase CP requirements even as more and more cards are released into the economy
    • Would make leagues harder for new players overall to climb
  • Team will review how the economy and system works once Modern/Wild is live and will adjust as needed after
