Getting Ready For Land!
So with the whitepaper 1.5 released there is a lot of planning
You can have a look for yourself here. If you are planning on getting involved with LAND you have to read through it. There is a lot of info in it and it takes a while to read through it. Perhaps the most important thing to know now is that phase 1.5 is coming probably some time in June/July of this year. So there is still a bit of time to try and maximize your strategy.
Yesterday I had a look at my cards to see how good they would be on land. the first thing you see are the terrain preferences in that regard. It is complex, have a look for yourself:
We have 14 terrain types with various bonuses or nerfs depending on the splinter. I made a table for myself to get a better overview:
There are 12 "normal" types and one "special" as you can see. They are the Tundra and Canyon giving different stats than the other terrains. There are two ways of looking at this table: either from the terrain or the splinter perspective. This is shown in my table as well.
The nerfs are quite large with -50% so it's going to be detrimental to find the right plot for your cards if you do not have a large quantity of plots (i.e. <20). With 20+ plots you will probably get one of each terrain type which will allow you to use your cards optimally, unless you have more cards for some splinters than others (which will probably be the case).
Here is an overview of how you will get PP:
Looking at my cards
If you want to maximize the PP you will get per plot you have to have a detailed look at your cards. The oldest edition, the highest rarity as well as gold foil cards will give you the most PP. So you have to filter your cards depending on these attributes. I have been with Splinterlands for 3+ years, but as you can see my cards are rather average.
The most PP I am getting is for gold legendary cards. They each give 2500 which is good, but considering that one could be getting 100k PP for 1 card (!) (a gold foiled legendary of the alpha set), it is quite low. I also only have 5 of them. But since they come from 3 different splinters, I will not be able to utilize them on one plot together with the highest bonus. Then I have 3 legendaries of the beta set giving 2400 PP each and 3 epics from the chaos set giving 1250 each. I also picked up some maxed lvl reward cards, but they only give 1100 or 1000 PP.
With my cards I will be able to utilize my plots rather below average. The only real chance to get significantly more PPs will be by getting a more rare land plot or buying better cards (but the first is luck and the second is now very expensive). Nevertheless, I am hyped for LAND as it will be exciting utilizing them and also seeing how they will affect gameplay in the long term.
What is your strategy?
Thanks for the great overview, I was considering to use max level legendaries if I buy some land, but might have to rethink that strategy now.
I have picked this post on behalf of the @OurPick project which will be highlighted in the next post!
yeah, it's actually somewhat disappointing to see how little PPs legendaries are giving. It's really gold foil or older cards that make a big difference. But maxed legendaries will still be good in battle

The land game will be huge. As well as the Splinterlands ecosystem as a whole. I am trying to complete my Splinterlands max-level deck. So I have no excess capital for land.

hmm, I think it will be smart to get some land. But there is a good chance that after the surveying starts you will be able to pick up some cheap common land plots
great overview I will have to rethink my future step
Happy if it helps :)

I think land will earn better than battles for a few weeks. So I will probably use my Gold Epic reward cards on land.
I think it will be longer than that, but we'll find out soon ;)

How many days we were only reading news of land within sprinterland and today reading your post it seems that land is coming soon. The price of the lands is very high, very few people will buy it and play on it.
