This series of articles is dedicated to novice and beginner players in Splinterlands like myself.Follow me in my journey to navigate Splinterlands.
Let us learn and have fun together!!!
We begin from where I left off... I ended my first season at Silver III, and started this current season from Bronze II.
I wasn't feeling too well for over a week, and did not get to battle at Splinterlands for several days. Hahaha... even as a new player, I had withdrawal symptoms. Did I tell you that this game can be addicting, hehehe?
As soon as I was felt better, I was on it!
You know how it is... and it should never be a cause of frustration... You win some, you lose some!
I was going up and down in points, and going from Silver III to Silver II, then back down again to Silver III.
Who would know that I'd be sick again for another week and I couldn't go to Splinterlands. Goodness, I really wanted so much to play ... did I tell you already that the game is addicting?
This was where I started from last Tuesday- at Silver II with1558 points.
Again... you win some, you lose some. I continued to play for about an hour and a half until I reached 1785 points at league Silver I! Yay!!!
Here is my battle log, as I reached GOLD III League in some 25 minutes.
I was lucky to be on a "Win Streak" and reached 1923 points to make my goal of 22 Reward Cards for the season!
If you guessed 🤔 that I stopped playing, then you are absolutely right!
The saying goes: 'A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush'.
I chose to stop playing rather than risk losing points.
I have secured my 22 Reward Edition Cards that I battled to win!
I shall wait out the end of this season and look forward to opening the reward cards, crossing my fingers 🤞 that I get some good enough cards 👌 to compete at the Gold League.
If you note the tip of the finger of the emoji hand below, I will be starting at the 1200 points rating at the start of the new season.
What helps me to understand Rule Sets, card placements and how the abilities of cards perform in a specific rule set is watching the entire battle. In fact, I watch all my battles from start to finish.
Here is one example of how card placements of common monsters can out-do rare and legendary cards with great abilities on an opponents line-up.
My "tank" is a common neutral level 1 Peaceful Giant, supported by common monsters of low level, except for one.
Enjoy this brief 2-minute video (2.5x speed) and see how my cards performed in a 17 Rounds battle! The game is so challenging and enjoyable even at novice and beginner leagues!
I hope that this article will be helpful to novice and beginner players of Splinterlands.
I have a passion for stacking silver & gold, home-cooking and travel. Follow me in my life journey.
Thank you for viewing this article. I will see you again soon!
