# The Splintergains report ~ Luck down, market up - Splinter Stats Season 53 Report Card
Alright, I'm here again to report on my most recent Splinterland season. Felt like I was low on luck but enjoyed playing the battles and seeing the development of the game progressing so it's all good in the end. Market seems to be going up too so I'm curious to see the progress numbers. For the news this season:
Rentals v 2.0 released
There's now an in-game rental system where you can use your won dec to rent cards and thus progress faster and break through those power walls reuqired for each league. This is huge as it requires hardly any knowledge and allows people to really get ahead on minimal budget or even go free-to-play after the initial spellbook purchase. I've been using the old rental 1.0 (still am actually) but it was kinda tedious and you needed to make some transfers to use dec, the new system is way more convenient. I still recommend anyone wanting to rent, or rent out for that matter, to check peakmonsters.com as they offer some extra custom stats and ways to rent or rent out in bulk.
Airdrop of sps is getting close
Year long airdrop of a new governance token, it's exciting but soon to be released. So more on that next time.
Let's look at the stats from this last season!
|Rating||2260 - Gold II|
|Total Rating Movements (+-)||4896|
|Ranked Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||1.17 (129/108/2)|
|Tournament Ratio (Win/Loss+Draw)||0.00 (0/9/0)|
|Tournament Reward Placements||1/2|
|Highest Rated Win vs||@epicteam (2889)|
Slightly lower ratio, I had to grind for some dailies so that makes sense. Still, above 1 is fine for me, finished in gold II again and am slowly building my own deck to a higher power level so I can cut back on rental costs and actually invest more in buying cards. Slow and steady!
Top 10 Summoner Usage
|Summoner||Frequency||Teams Fielded||Win Rate|
|Drake of Arnak||1||0.43%||0.00%|
Funny Alric is in the top spot, Expected Lyanna to be there as I use her most at lvl 4. Guess I had soem tough water quests or it was available more often, not too sure.
Top 100 Monster Usage
|Monster||Frequency||Teams Fielded||Win Rate|
|Spirit Druid Grog||10||4.27%||90.00%|
|Torhilo the Frozen||10||4.27%||40.00%|
|Child of the Forest||3||1.28%||66.67%|
|Serpent of Eld||2||0.85%||50.00%|
|Warrior of Peace||2||0.85%||0.00%|
First spot we'll skip, you know the drill..
Cornealus takes econd this season, I really should be getting one as I'm renting it now. It's such a great card. I especially like it in poison ruleset. Even without doing damage its survival rate is so great, with lyanna it has +1 hp and thus gains +5 hp with every heal cycle. So a match with less than 5 damage incoming or poison and 3 or less will have the opposite team wither away while cornealus stays strong.
Win Rate by Ruleset
|Odd Ones Out||14||50.00%|
|Keep Your Distance||12||66.67%|
|Fog of War||12||58.33%|
|Rise of the Commons||12||75.00%|
|Up Close & Personal||8||62.50%|
|Back to Basics||7||28.57%|
Nothing out of the ordinary here, actually my least favorite part of the report.
Ok I didn't win a single standard rule match, that's silly I'll try harder next time :-P
|Final - Spring Train Silver (w/NFT GIVEAWAYS)||Silver||Open||92/100||0.00 (0/9/0)||3 DEC|
One tournament I unfortunately had to miss :-(
Last spring training too, will see how the nft's will appreciate over the coming years

Ha, now the good part! For anyone who read my last report:
I managed to pull my first Legendary, no gold foil, but still. Almo Cambio is the card and it's an interesting one. High HP and not affected by negative status effects. It has no attack though so it's more a pure tank/buffer to hold the line. Interesting for sure and used it on several occasions.
Other than that.. pretty shitty season in rewards, maaaany potions, ok one big chunk of 2k dec (included instead of untamed packs since they sold out?) but mostly low amounts of dec and commons and occasional rare card.
Total ranked earnings is good though: 8k
I'm gonna save up a lot of dec and probably buy packs when the new set releases, gotta put those potions to work got a lot sitting idle..
Collection progress since last season
Gotta mention, when I wrote the last report I already had the Legendary card (+1k power) included in these stats. But wow, as I got only common and rares after the Legendary the power hardly grew. But ever since the untamed set sold out the market has been going up and up, $30+ increase on a collection of just $80, you do the math.. Will it stay that way? Will the new set devalue the current cards? Nobody knows for sure but for now things are looking good. The early sets before untamed are still high in price, if this repeats the cards will only go up. It all depends on the growth and development of the game of course. But from the looks of it, there's a bright future ahead!
Peakmonsters value+power progression (Reversed chronological order):
$ 111.12 using Market Prices // 13,790 DEC
$ 79.18 using Market Prices // 13,410 DEC
$ 60.42 using Market Prices // 11,880 DEC
$ 34.60 using Market Prices // 9,100 DEC
$ 28.53 using Market Prices // 7,230 DEC
$ 21.32 using Market Prices // 5,320 DEC
This is new! Cool new feature. I rented one Gold Foil Legendary to get enough power for gold II. Also only rented out a few cards so hence the big difference.
Another crazy season and different from all earlier ones, high total dec earnings, low power gain, HUGE value gain. Splinterlands never fails to amaze. Hope you liked my report. Let me know how your season was and what your strategy regarding SPS airdrop and buying into the new set is (or maybe not buying is your strategy?) and I'll see you for the next report!
For anyone who's only now hearing about the game and wanting to try it out this will take you to the main page.
