I has been a while since I did a general gaming post. I did write about making guitars in Rising Star and I have now made seven of them. I am up to 16th in the rankings, so get some extra HIVE each day for that. I have enough fans so that missions can make me enough to buy twelve packs every three days or so.
I have had a little luck with packs. I got another legendary musician and a legendary car. With some swaps and by saving up I have most of the vehicles now. Those boost my fans, but I need to do lessons to get skill to counter the ego. I do swaps with various people to get the instrument cards I need to optimise that. It is generally a good idea to get as many unique cards as possible to boost your rank, but you just need one of each. I hope I can get the trike soon, but will have to be lucky to get the yacht as prices are too high for me to buy.
We should be able to craft drums in the game soon and I hope to see further missions too.
In Splinterlands I am still limited ot the Gold league, but am gradually levelling up cards with my winnings. I got a nice amount of DEC this season and a gold card.
The pack I won was not too exciting. I am not generally buying packs as I prefer to level up the cards I have from the market.
The Splinter Elites guild I am in has a few free places if you want to join. You earn extra DEC by being in a guild, but are expected to contribute some to level it up.
I still play @dcity, but it's pretty passive. The tax is pretty high and I buy the odd card to occupy my citizens to earn a little more. I am really not sure which cards are the best to get.
I see others getting a nice income from the game, but as with all of them it is the big players who tend to reap the rewards, which allows them to get even bigger. In Splinterlands some huge accounts stay in lower leagues to win the season reward packs, leaving me with no chance. I do not really play these games for the money anyway. It is a little diversion to pass some time. I like the cards and the community in Rising Star. Splinterlands has the challenge of the battles. I guess if play dCity out of habit and it takes up very little time.
I know there are other games out there, but I do not really want to spend more time on playing as I have other things to do.
