For smaller players who want to get some plots and are worried about missing out on the second round lottery:
I have two guaranteed regions (from Round 1) that I'm willing to use to help smaller players. I'd let players buy between 1 to 50 plots at $9 per plot (the at cost rate if you were part of a pool, which is cheaper than the $12/plot you'd pay if you bought individual plots in Round 2 and even cheaper than the $10/plot you'd pay if you bought individual plots in Round 1):
I'll buy the guaranteed regions anyway so you don't have to worry about whether or not the pool has gotten enough participation. And since these are guaranteed regions, you don't have to risk missing out like with the Round 2 lottery.
You'd get 9 raffle tickets with each $9 plot.
I'd distribute the plots and the raffle tickets as soon as they are received (right when the lottery period ends and pre-sale #2 begins).
I do strongly prefer U.S. PayPal for payment (since the original amount was put on my credit card), though I can also probably take any sort of crypto that Splinterlands accepts. For those who want to buy land with DEC, I would suggest contacting cryptoeater, Team Possible, or vcdragon.
If someone wants to buy more than 50 plots, I can put the excess (over 50) on the waiting list. I want to first give as many people as possible the chance to purchase plots. If there is leftover supply, then I can sell the rest.
