Splinterlands | Equalizer Challenge

in Splinterlands2 months ago

Something differen this week in the Share Your Battle Challenge as it is a game rule that is being highlighted instead of a card or an ability. This is the Equalizer Game Rule...

Game Rules are a great thing in Splinterlands as they make almost every match unique in one way or another and give almost every card actually useful when the right conditions are met. The Equalizer rule is one of the more recent that was added giving each card the amount of Health to the one that has the highest on either team. This usually brings about my favorite matches as they tend to play out fun and interesting.

Equalizer Game Rule Tactics

There are different tactics I use to put myself in the best possible spot to win these matches.

  1. Let max health come from the opponent his cards. This basically gives you an edge on mana that you can use as health is one of the factors calculated in how much mana something costs. Especially in low mana battles, if you can feed of the health from one of your opponent his cards you almost always will end up as a winner.
  2. Heal can be super useful since it is done as a % of the total health, so low health cards will get 2 heal each round while high health cards can get healed with 4 extra life.
  3. Using Specific cards that have low health as disadvantage. I'm mostly thinking of something like the Exploding Dwarf or cards that have the Life Leach ability like the Vampire.

In this specific match, I went for max heal and a hard (impossible) to kill tank in the form of my Lord Ariantus. Using the Daria Dragonscale Summoner that gives +1 Melee Attack, I followed it up by 2 big melee cards. The Dragon Jumper & the Sand Worm. The Double heal for my main tank came in the form of the Tortisian Chief and the Crustacean King. To end the line-up I choose for the Water Elemental which has self Heal. All my monsters got a lot of extra Heal from my opponent his max heal card which is key to success in these matches.

My tank was simply impossible for the opponent to kill and the match ended win an almost flawless victory where all my monsters stayed alive.

I continue to offer a win-win deal to everyone who tries out the game using my Referral Linkand from what I have seen, this is the most favorable way for any new player to sign up at this moment. Right now, this deal really helps to increase new players their collection score to at least around 5000 which allows for Bronze 1 rewards. See Full Sign-Up Deal.
To see what can be expected in terms of earnings from the Splinterlands game, check my monthly earnings reports. The numbers will likely go down with the new reward restriction implementations that started this month.

Important: Treat games in the first place as games and not as investment opportunities, Splinterlands allows you to earn some money and get good returns but you are much better off flipping burgers in Mcdonalds when looking at the money earned for the time invested.

Hive Power Up Day - Let's grow together!

Those monthly winnings are impressive. I think I'm running at around $2 maybe... but I guess we all have to start somewhere.

It takes quite some time to build something up with the game and you also need to tap into all earning aspects to really make the earnings considerable. Should be interesting when I do my calculations for September as the rewards really got cut down a lot with the new system.

Good Luck !

@tipu curate

I love that you include links to the previous Battle Challenges. Awesome.
