My First Taste Of The Champions League

in Splinterlands4 months ago

Hey Splinterlands fans

Its the end of the season and we're getting our rewards today, this season is the first time I've broken out of diamond into champions league 3 after MANY seasons of playing so this is my highest finish and I am pretty chuffed about that.

It entitles me to 80 loot crates plus 16 loot crates for my daily rewards and I managed to rack up enough DEC to purchase one untamed pack. So I've got plenty to get through in my recap of the season so let's begin.

Daily Reward

I managed to score 4 cards in my daily reward and one of them was a Gold Sand Worm worth $1.5 so my day got off to a good start

End of season reward

My end of season rewards weren't too great, did manage to pull 5 rares and couple of epics and 6 of them were part of the new reward cards which I'm pretty stoked about, loving the ant miners lol I got 31 cards with a total value of $1

Untamed packs

I pulled out two untamed packs one with the DEC I had and I also got one as part of my end of season rewards, very cool, the first time that's happened. I managed to add an Azmare Harpoonist to my deck, which I've never had and got 10 cards with a total value of $0.87

Upgrades

As you well now when you get your end of season rewards its a good idea to see if you can upgrade some monsters and I managed to find 3 that could do with a boost

Silvershield Assassin

Moves up to level 5, no attribute upgrades but its now a terrible threat, with a new ability in poison, which works well when combined with its sneak and double strike.

Kobold Bruiser

On the untamed side I moved this one up to level 2, nothing much really, the card is worth $0.05 and has increased its HP from 3 to 4.

Gremlin Blaster

This rare bad boy is now on level 5 and worth $0.67, its upgrade saw it lose on HP down from 3 to 2, but it has picked up the stun ability which is cool

Nice dude I held my quest yesterday so that I could open the new cards and got some commons but nothing great. Glad you got a gold foil! That’s bad ass! Especially getting to champion 3, too. I’ve gotten there the past 3 seasons I think, first one by pure luck but thankfully the last 2 a couple days ahead of the end of the season so I get those big chest numbers lol

Off to open my season rewards!

Thanks I love gold cards it’s now two end of seasons in a row where I picked up a Goldie!keen to see what you got handed this time around

Eh not much lol on this account I got a big load of horse shit so that was annoying but on my other account I grabbed one epic, two gold commons (not new ones lol) and some rares. Nothing great but decent enough to make up for it. I at least got lots of potions on my main account, only need 300 more legendary potions to get to 550.

I think I’m at a decent point too where I can farm and sell my DEC for hive. Hoping to recoup the 400 or 500 hive I spent in cards and packs back when it was Steem lol. One of the guys I have in my other guild sells all his DEC for hive and bought I think 1 or 2 Ethereum with it so I’m looking to do the same!

I think I’ll be doing something similar I’m not really so big on the untamed and now that I see they are given as rewards too I’ll be farming DEC for HIVE and then into SWAP.BTC building up a little reserve there

So how are you doing the swap.btc thing? I was going to just send it through Blocktrades to one of my mainstream accounts but is swap.btc on hive engine worth it? I think there's something there as a peg but not sure how useful it is.

Is the fee for Blocktrades lower than that of hive engine?

Yes that’s why I’m using SWAP.BTC it’s cheaper and I can build up a reserve before sending onchain transaction! Instead of having to pay Everytime I use blocktrades I can just keep piling up those small amounts into BTC

Damn that's awesome thanks for that tip man. I think I'm going to stack into Bitcoin right now in hopes of it mooning later this summer lol Edicted has me thinking it might get double or triple its current value. I'm thinking around 18k, trying to be more practical than 20-30k.

I still dont know why i am not playing this game ...

Lol I was the same took me months to get into it and seeing everyone post about it and I eventually gave in and haven’t looked back since

I think i will start when i am fine with my exams.. as I can be addicted to gaming

LOL I’m the same if I have to game I do it in the holidays or most of the time mu consoles are packed in the cupboard

I'm not a game kind of person but with Splinterland trending on Hive. I have tried learning how to 😀 last night was no success.

I am a game person but i am finding it hard to get around it

I wondered if I will succeed in knowing how to play considering you finding it hard

You will .. maybe i am not just patient with it. There are different factors

I will keep trying

There are lots of factors but if you give it time you will learn it. Once you get some decent games going, you can learn to appreciate it because the ruleset and your cards available really make it fun.

The best advice I can say is to try to play by the ruleset first, for example melee only, then look at your opponents cards second. If in melee only your opponent is using the Life summoner that adds 1 shield of defense to all cards, try to use a monster, if you have one, that has piercing damage which goes through armor. Once you start to develop some strategies like this for the individual gameplays you can tweak them to fight tougher opponents!

Thanks alot for the tips much appreciated ☺

Congratulations to have reached the champion league. ;)

Thanks, whats was your highest finish? Do you play?

I stopped and sell all my cards last year. I don't like the gameplay, too slow and repetitive, and you need to always spend money to advance or stay where you are.

I understand and yes it can get repetitive! I’m just really a card collector I used to do it as a kid and enjoyed it so that’s why I like this game

!ENGAGE 20

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

Silvershed Assassin is def one my best!

For sure and now that I it has poison ability I can realty kick ass with it! Add that with a team member that has inspire and it will take any team apart

Thats super cool. I usually mix it with Daria Dragonscale and that inspire monster, cant rem its name

If Daria is available I always take it because it’s my highest level summoner lol

You smart

unnamed (3).gif

Yeah man same here lol my Daria is my best at level 4. One of my guildmates was a beast and maxed out his Daria back when it was still in print. I'm jealous! Such a crazy card and now he tears shit up no matter what he's playing.

Gosh i'd love a maxed out one I am in 2 minds about selling DEC of just buying summoners and destroying everyone lol

One of my deadliest combinations is with Daria and inspire. I won't reveal my ideal lineup unless we meet each other on the battlefield! :D

Battles will be had soon!
