New Splinterlands Blog - My Intro and What to Expect

in Splinterlands9 days ago (edited)


This is my first Splinterlands blog post. Ever!

So first thing is: Thank you for visiting and reading! I'd like to give you the tl:dr version of an introduction for myself and then tell you why you should come back and be a regular visitor.

Who is King-Of-Rockets?

Right off the bat, I am the self proclaimed king of rockets. Why? I don't know. It just sounded interesting at the time. Now I'm stuck with it. Let's move on.

I am a relatively new player to Splinterlands. I started around February of this year. I've made some real progress since then. Thanks to the guidance and generosity of a couple experienced players who I now proudly call guild-mates, I've built myself quite a decent deck, if I do say so myself. It's not the greatest collection ever put together. My budget isn't big enough for that. But I think I've made some good purchases since I started and managed to put together a more or less solid Gold League deck. It's still a work in progress for sure but all in good time. It's enough to get me into Diamond II and if I was a better player, perhaps Diamond I or dare I dream... Champion III! That's a lofty goal but I feel like with enough practice and grinding, I will get there. I can feel it!

Well, a few more awesome cards wouldn't hurt either :)

Thank you so much! Very much appreciate the welcome... twice! My humor is way better than my Splinterlands skill so that's what I have to rely on lol. Well, at least I think it is. Maybe they are both awful. I guess we'll see. Regardless, I appreciate your support!
