My Splinterlands Blog #99 - Season End and Riftwatcher Pre-Sale
Welcome to another article where I write about my journey playing Splinterlands! There's a lot of stuff going up as pre-sales over the next couple of weeks. Today the Riftwatcher's set went on sale a little after the end of the season. The initial "pre-sale" lasted a little under 2 minutes, where the first 500K, of 3 million, packs sold out.It's since sold another 140K packs, though at a much slower rate.
I tried to buy 50 packs to get the promo card, but my purchase was about 12 seconds too late after it had sold out. They've said they'll refund people who just missed out if they want to return the packs, but so far I haven't taken them up on it. Granted, as the prices of Splintershards (SPS) has gone up, it would make financial sense to get it back and buy 50 packs for less SPS.
Anyhow, with a lot of season end items to cover, let's move on to the usual breakdown of the past week:

Since I got so many from daily chests, I opened up 4 Chaos Legion packs at the same time this week:Sadly no summoners, gold cards, or legendary cards. The one epic is not my favorite card either, though the rare and common cards are generally good ones.
Guild Brawl #102, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild hasn't been doing great in brawls. We came in 3rd from last place this time around.
Guild Brawl #103, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. While I felt like I did decently, the guild came in 2nd to last place.
Vs. SUNCROW of TAVERN JUSTICE - opponent fled
Vs. KDUBB of KORTKLUBBEN - opponent fled
I opened up one more Gladius Pack:No gold foil cards, so nothing new for my brawl deck.
No tournaments or trading this week, though I was looking at my extra cards and thinking I should try to trade some of them. Another tough season, where I only managed to squeeze my way into Diamond at the end of the season. Silver was fairly rough too, but I was able to stay in Silver I fairly easily on my alternate account.
I got 69 Silver chests for the season on my alt, and 39 Diamond chests on my main. I actually think the Diamond chests may have come out better this time around though, due to the amounts of SPS in Silver chests just being so small.Part on of my Silver league rewards for my Investygator account. A lot of potions, small SPS amounts, small merit amounts, common cards, and a few rare cards. The first half of my main account's rewards. A much higher amount of SPS, two epics, and a Legendary card made this a much nicer reward set.
I should note that I mainly played in Wild all season. I did run up from Bronze III to Silver I on my alt account in Modern at one point, but only really played Wild on my main. And, that's plenty for this week! Thank you for reading and I’ll be back next week with another update!
