Final Splinterlands investment! Did buy a bunch of Untamed packs

The selling of the last Untamed packs does go pretty fast. So fast that I do expect them to sell out within the week. Maybe even faster and can it beat the end of this season. We did see this with the beta packs, who did sell like sweet candies at the last days.

My investment!

I decided to purchase a lot of 100 Untamed Packs. This way I do get a bonus of 10.
My investment did cost me around 510 Hive, which I did purchase on the market. So it took some time to convert the Hive to DEC, I did pay on average 0.00254 Hive per DEC.

There are a lot of possible options, what I will do with the packs. In first instance I did decide to open 14 of those (I did already purchased 4 yesterday with some earned DEC).
The other will remain unopened.

As we look at the value of the Beta packs, they do have a value of 28 Hive per pack. I did bought my untamed at 5,08 Hive per Untamed pack.
So, I do hope to make a profit out of it. After the airdrop of the governance token, I will see what I will do with them.

By owing 100 of these beauties, I will get 60000 SPS.
After that I can open in the worst case, 100 packs, good for 500 cards.
So I do think that I did made a good investment, but of course this does stay crypto and only time will tell.

Since I did buy the pack this morning and now the time of writing this post, another 3500 packs have been sold. Telling Usan Bolt would have troubles catching up!

The opening of the 14 packs

So 14 packs were opened, with the support of lots of potions!
60 cards in total.

I did get 2 of these:

These 2 alone are already good for a little bit over $32, around 26 euro. So I did recuperate already some of my investment.

Also did get 4 golden cards.
In total the revealing was good for $42.79 or 35 Euro.

If you do want some untamed packs, better hurry because they will sell out fast!
Time will tell if this was a smart move or not, but at the moment I do think that I took the right decision.
Even doubting if I will buy another 100 or not. Still have some USDT lying around after the FORTH airdrop.

Cheers,
Peter

Jesvssss! So Lucky! I am honestly jealous of your pull!!!

I bought 10 UT packs days ago, sent it to one of my alt to open (since I think this account of mine is cursed) and from $20 (20,000 DEC) the estimated value of all the cards I pulled were only $7USD. LOL And that is with both Legendary and Alchemy Potions.

I did get 1 COMMON GOLD though but no legendary which would immediately made that pull worth it.

Anyways, gratssss on your magnificent pull! XD

Thanks, it does make the investment is little less painful :)

If you buy packs off Hive Engine, do you still qualify for the airdrops? Saw some selling at a nice discount and thought it might be because they don't qualify.

I don't think they do. Only Packs bought in-game qualifies for the airdrop.

I tried buying UT packs on Monstermarket before since I thought they would also give some cashback for buying packs, but stopped myself after seeing a pop-up there that says that if you want the packs to qualify for the future airdrops, use the other link that is directly connected IN-GAME. So I think only packs purchased in-game qualifies for the airdrops.

I see.. thanks for the confirmation. Yes, it probably explains why they're going cheaper on there. Seeing as how I never get any airdrop card, maybe it might be worth it to save the 40c and buy a couple of packs on Hive Engine.

Honesty don’t have a clue. They don’t qualify for the Untamed drop for sure.
I do think that I you have them in the chain that will be enough. But I don’t know!

510 $HIVE is around 162 € Quite an investment :)

It's tempting ... And my thinking / deliberating is not as fast as Usain's running :)

Almost 10000 packs sold today. So if you do want to do this, you will have to be fast.
It was paid with the FORTH airdrop. Yes it is quite an investment, but a free one.

Oh yes, $FORTH :)

I put it into various #defi sites, @cubfinance included. I tried ten of those money-sinkers. Now, only https://app.treedefi.com/ remains as positive.

The problem is that I don't understand Defi at all. They all do seem like a money pit for me.
And if you don't understand, educate yourself or just stay away from it!
Thanks for the tips!

In the end, they are a huge money pit. It all depends on how lucky (early) you are. Also, it is extremely important not to be too greedy and to run away at first sign of prize dropping.

Come to think of it, it's better to stay away completely :)

That was probably the best. I do think that I overall in the green steemmonster wise. If I sell everything of course. Did already sell over 1M DEC good for 1800 Hive.
!BEER to you too!

My investment did cost me around 510 Hive

Yup... I fold.

Was free money from the $FORTH airdrop. Otherwise it was also a no brainer for me. Just no.
Was thinking in what I could invest what probably will go up in value!

Man...guessed I missed out on that one.

As long as people keep playing the game. Just waiting for what my 2 plots ROI will be.
