So the latest season is coming to an end and I gotta say it's probably my most enjoyable yet. Especially with the introduction of "Guilds". I have managed to finish this season in "Champion I" which is a big deal to me, as before the highest I ever got was "Champion II". Pretty chuffed at that. But I tell you, the level of competition is insane at these levels...
Trying to get into the 5,000 points category is extremely difficult for me. Guess that means some improvements have to be made to my game. A few extra cards added to my arsenal may help, although I believe I've got most of what I need. One regret though is not buying the alpha "Death" splinter when they were cheap. Still, as I say, I've got most of everything else.
But yeah, sometimes I get proper mad when I lose. Do you guys get that way too? I suppose that's a good thing as it means I really care about doing well in the "Splinterlands" community. As do many others too. A few matches I've lost by only a point and the swears starrt flying. Once I was this close to putting a pen through the monitor screen. But yeah, that was admittedly a little too OTT at the time.
Watching this game unfold has been a privilege and ultra enjoyable too. From my perspective, by far the best version of a business model using the STEEM blockchain by a long shot. This season's introduction of multiple rules was a curveball I didn't expect. It was quite amusing when the missus found out and for a while, was totally lost. She's also doing pretty well too, being in the "Peakmonsters [PREMIERE]" guild.
All in all, this game has the hallmarks to be a blockbuster in the crypto world. The mechanics are beautfully balanced and the core gameplay is oh-so-addictive by nature. And we have so much more in the horizon too. My "spliterland" goals from here? Trying to get into the top 50 at the end of a season. This season might be too late now but you never know. See y'all on the battlefield!
