One reason I still play Splinterlands / Swapping DTC for moar cards!

in LeoFinance6 months ago

I play the daily quest on Splinterlands almost daily, and although my deck is not so up with the times and it can take up to 30/40 minutes to complete the quest, this is one reason to keep on turning up.

Yesterday, was the second day of the new season and I'd been placed back in the Gold 3 league. Here, cards are not running at max abilities due to reduced Summoner capabilities, and the number of rewards chests is only 8. It's not usually my favourite part of the season for those reasons, and there does seem to be tough opposition (better/more players?) at this level - It's a bit of grind, even if you quite like the game.

I started my quest for the day at 18:04 local time and played 12 games through to 18:44 when I claimed my reward chests. I was doing other things as well it seems - transferring Hive-Engine tokens, a little bit of Rabona, and some Cryptobrewmaster too, but those probably didn't cut into the time too much. Oh, and some Scrabble against my mum - she starts messaging me if I've not played any of the 15 or so games we have running at present 😵

Anyway, back to 18:44 and.... ohhh, it's shaking (legendary), and oooh, the crystallizing sorta sound, a gold one!

This one!

The slight chance that a card like this will drop is one of the main reasons I play each day, and it was 'won' at Gold 3 level which I suspect does not require a large investment into the game.

My first thought, and what I did the last time this happened, was 'sell!'. I'm unlikely to collect more of these, but the last gold legendary I sold has doubled in price since soo, maybe I'll keep it. I also mentioned it to a fellow player who thinks cards like this could be useful when Lands arrives, so for now, I'll keep Mr Dog and see what happens.


DTC tokens > Splinterlands Cards

Today has been another good day for my deck as collected 9 more decent cards in a trade for some tokens I wasn't aware I had. It seems there is a dtube airdrop of DTC underway, and I'm in the list!

I did register for dtube earlier this year (which is a requirement for the airdrop) but had totally forgotten about the airdrop and at the time didn't expect the tokens to be worth anything. Also, the boss has left a shitty-ass comment on a post of mine earlier this year so I wasn't interested in supporting the project - but hey, I'll take some tokens to sell/swap for something I do find value in...

Gold Alphas, and some other decent early cards too - Not bad for some tokens you'd forgotten about.

I wonder if/what 3speak (a project I much prefer) are planning for an airdrop, those ones I'll probably keep a hold of and try to collect.

Thanks to @dontstopmenow for giving me the heads up about the DTC airdrop, and also wanting to trade me some cards for my DTC.

Not bad at all 😃

cool card that that spirit grog dude. not a must have, but like using it.

But when you only have one level, best just to look at it in your deck and not play it? 🙂

yup. maybe even send it to an alt so it doesn't fk with your head:)

I got a GF ancient lich the other day, guess i could go and buy it's 3 mates.... hmm maybe in a month or two :)

That's what happens when you have 1 of a new card - first thing to do is go check for mates :)

Hmm, kicked some ass there. A minor role but did its bit!

Everyone seems to be on that drop list, even me who doesn't even like dTube!

I didn't read up on the criteria but assuming posting/delegating/voting were part of the calculation. Johal and many of the top 10 didn't claim!

Is it too late to claim? I missed it all.

I think that unless you registered earlier in the year with dtube then the drop isn't available.

There are 3 methods to login (wtf), I found that only my Steem login details would display the notification that there were tokens available to claim.

Can't remember if I did or not. Where is the claim link.. I can't see it, and if I did register... where can you find the tokens?

If you login with Steem credentials, there should be a notification in notifications saying you have tokens to claim.

Into here?: https://d.tube/

Says user does not exist...

Yes. I have a feeling that you may not have joined up with dtube when they were sorting out registrations. It's as clear as mud though with 3 logins and I'm not sure if you can register with dtube now and then sync your Steem account, sorry.

Wow, nice one to get on a DQ. I got a fairly valuable card recently and sold it as I was not likely to use it. I bought a few when I sold my ST++M. I tried levelling up some golds to make a bit more on battles. Having failed to get land in the first round I may try again, but I am reluctant to spend much more on the game.

Enjoy your new cards. Maybe we will meet in battle and you will thrash me :)

A gold legendary on a daily quest with 8 chest - that is pretty lucky!

I'm in on the Land, although not 100% sure what I'm getting - it's in the capable hands of my guild who also missed the first round. No clue what will happen but I'm glad I've got a small investment into the game which could put Hive on the map.

See you on the battlefield :)

What's DTC?

dtube coin, I think?

Ahh, dTube is still around then eh?

Seems so. Token is available on Uniswap and so it's had a couple of pumps of late. Think I got 1000 more, which at current price of around 50 cents is better than a kick in the ass.

Project Activity Update

This made it look more tempting to play the daily quest more

You never know when you'll have some good luck :)

nice card pull dear @abh12345. I just wanted to check with you on the 3Speak tokens. Did you invest in them when they were being SOLD and also traded on HIVE-engine. I did buy some of those tokens and now they aren't traded anymore. Tried reaching out to some people but I didn't hear back. Did you buy those 3Speak tokens earlier? Cheers

Hi, thanks, very lucky :)

I didn't buy any of these tokens on S-E / H-E and don't think these relate to the airdrop I have heard about.

Wow, that is a pretty decent haul. I have never gotten a gold legendary card. I have gotten some decent other ones though. Are you going to try and take part in the land sale? I think I have a couple of plots coming my way in this next one. I pretty much just play to complete the daily quests too.

I'm not sure on the odds but I think this is a rare event!

Yes I'm taking part in the land sale, my Guild (TeamPossible) are taking care of it and I think I'll get 8 plots from the next sale.

Ah, okay, I know that guild. I think I am in their land pool as well even though I am not in the guild. Kaiser got me hooked up!

That isbthe beauty of the game some day its booom....
Its always wxciting to see a shaking card but real excitement comes when they shaking card turn into gold...
Awesome pulll... congratulations...

Thanks for sharing

which rewards $ 57 worth of just one card. You must have been very happy also having seen the reward you received at the post hahaha

Well, I know why ill be keeping at it. Nice content. keep it up!
