In Splinterlands, it is a bad idea to upgrade league from Bronze to Silver without upgraded cards πŸ€•

I think it is a really bad idea in #Splinterlands to upgrade from Bronze League to Silver League, when all your cards are still at Level 1. While I was still at 1,000th Rating, my monsters were massacred by an opponent with Level 2 Legendary Yodin Zaku. πŸ€•

Sort: Β 

I personally only upgrade to gold league on the day before or day of the season ending. Without the proper cards, I think you can still win but each jump in league becomes much harder.

If I upgrade my rank 1 day before, I can collect the bonus chests from quests rewards twice. So long as I burn my energy capture rate, I won't have to worry about fighting.

Pros:
1 more quest reward chest and maybe a few more DEC per win (but more loses so might even out)

Cons:
Harder Fights and tournaments are more expensive for certain ones

Since this is my first time in Silver League, I have learned a lot not to upgrade to Silver again unless I have upgraded cards or there are 24 hours left before the next Season. πŸ™‚

Thanks for your reply! πŸ˜€

When I was in Bronze League, I used to enjoy Win Streaks up to 50%. Now in Silver League, I can't even win 3 consecutive games. πŸ™

By the way, what do you mean with "So long as I burn my energy capture rate, I won't have to worry about fighting."? πŸ€”

The day before season end, I finish my quest and then I do extra battles to drop my dark energy capture rate down to like 70%.

Then I rank up and collect the extra chests. The next day (if quest comes early enough), finish the next daily quest (tougher fights) and collect the quest rewards before season end (extra chest still there). This means without much effort, you were able to collect the extra chest rewards twice while only doing the quest once in the higher league.

Alternatively, you can just upgrade your league rank just before season end and then collect the quest rewards for the extra chest once (without fighting in SIlver).

Thanks for your reply! πŸ™‚ Anyway, I have the following questions about your comment. πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

Why down to more or less 70%? πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

Are those chests the Daily Chests, or the Season End Chests? πŸ€”

I got more confused. 🀯 Sorry. 😨


I tried ranking up after I finished my Daily Quest for Bronze I, and found out that the Daily Quest for Silver III shares the same cooldown as the League below it. 😐
