My Splinterlands Blog #95 - Upcoming Fire Summoner & End of Season
Welcome to another entry where I write about my journey playing Splinterlands! While this isn't exactly fresh news, one thing that I didn't really cover was the release of the upcoming legendary Fire Summoner for Chaos Legion, Conqueror Jacek. This will be the first summoner that gives Scattershot, so your ranged units will attack random enemy targets. The main attraction is probably the +2 to Speed, which is a fairly significant boost.Not as overpowered as Yodin Zaku, but he will likely be more affordable!
This has been a fairly tough season, at least in my opinion. It may just be coming off of the very long previous season, where there was plenty of time to grind up ranking. Or, maybe I just ended up playing at times when there were more good players online.
Not a lot of other news, and lots of screen shots of season rewards to get to, so let's take a look at the break down of the week:

I also opened four Chaos Legion packs. I opened them together, rather than individually:
Guild Brawl #96, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild did mediocre, coming in 6th place overall.
Vs. KHENZBOI of CRYPTO MILITIA - opponent fled
Guild Brawl #97, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild did better, coming in 2nd place. I didn't have any opponents this time around. But, I did open one more Gladiator pack:No gold foil cards, so nothing to help out my Brawl deck.
No trading or tournaments for this past week. As usual, I made it into Silver I for the majority of the season on my InvestYGator account, while I only ended up in Diamond II this season on my main. I still got a few Champion chests from last season:One legendary, a Chaos Legion pack, a couple gold foil commons, a couple of decent DEC amounts, and lots of potions.
My InvestyGator account got a lot more chests, though usually of lower quality contents:One Chaos Legion pack of note in the first set of rewards. One more Chaos Legion pack, plus an epic card, of note out of the rest.
That's about it for this season. I was pretty happy to get the last Djinn Oshannus I needed to max out his level. With the trading, and buying, that I did earlier on I am starting to get to a point where I don't need any more copies of some cards on my main or alt. I should be renting out a lot more, but managing that well can also be time consuming. There are some services out there that will rent cards for you, but I'm hesitant to give out any of my keys.
With the new season, I'll once again be trying to grind my way back into Diamond league. I'm far less concerned about getting into Silver on my Investygator account, as I tend to do that easily the first day of the season. At any rate, that's it for this season wrap up. I'll be back next week with an update on the next season!
