Bozzlife: A little late to the party (Splinterlands season rewards)

in #steempeak10 months ago


I am just now getting around to sharing the cards that I got from my end of season rewards at the beginning of this week. The truth is, there were only a handful that were actually worth sharing, and I also have just had a lot of stuff to say which led to me pushing this post back.

My daily quest rewards have also been pretty horrible. I am struggling to get out of the Silver Tier and I am afraid that with the holidays coming it is going to be even harder. I don't know about you guys but I am really looking forward to the mobile app being available.

Mobile App

Call me lazy, but it is such a pain in the butt for me to pull out my Chromebook or go down to my desktop in the basement and sit there struggling to win my five (or three) matches for the daily quest.

It is going to be so refreshing to be able to just sit on the couch next to my wife and swear at my phone as I lose yet another fight that I totally should have won.

As you can see above, one of my pulls is the legendary Spirit Miner and then I got a gold foil Silvershield Archers. I was pretty excited about those two cards. Everything else was just average at best...

Selling Alphas

I have been toying around with the idea of selling some of my Alpha cards. I don't have a ton of them and none of them are above level 3, but I think I could get close to $50 USD for the lot of them. Right now that can buy a lot of STEEM if I wanted to power it up. Much more than if I wait and the price goes up.

I am still on the fence about doing this. I just am not sure if now is the right time to sell. Please give me your opinion or advice if you have any insight on this.

Delegating to Herons

I am still throwing this idea around too. My win/loss record is proof that there are countless other people out there who are more skilled at Splinterlands than I am. It would be really awesome to tap into that knowledge and have them play my deck for me while I sit back and collect (share) the rewards.

Here is my biggest fear though... It is my understanding that whatever cards you get from your daily rewards they just burn into DEC. What if they pull that legendary gold foil that I can sell for hundreds of dollars and it gets converted to DEC? Did I just cost @mrsbozz a new pair of diamond earrings?

Is the likelihood of that happening worth the potential benefit of earning a crap ton of DEC? I just don't know. I have a fairly decent deck with most of my summoners being level 6 or so. I have no doubt that someone who understands the strategy better than me could probably easily reach the diamond league with my deck if not possibly higher.

Is it a risk I should take? I look forward to your input on this as well. I know some of you have delegated out your decks. Was the fear of losing a "big" card worth it?

Perhaps things will change with the mobile client. Maybe I will be able to play more casually than I have in the past and reaching those higher tiers won't be quite so difficult.

I look forward to your honest unadulterated opinions on all of this!

You should be getting in the Gold league easily with Lvl6 summoners. That's what I use and regularly hit Diamond near the EOS.

I too looked at Heron's but it all seemed so complicated I didn't bother. I do sell the cards I don't use, but struggle to sell golds. Not that they are hard to sell, I'm just related to magpies.

Silvershield Archers is a cheap card, but at (2) makes it in my lineup a lot. Double strike is better than it looks.

looking forward to the mobile app being available.

You can play on your regular phone, it's a little tricky but I have been doing it for months now.

Yeah, I know I can play on my phone, but the page just doesn't respond well. Like I said, I am lazy! Would you be concerned about potentially losing a good card but gaining DEC?

I like to have control of my assets..., Oooooh.. that came out wrong! So would always play the game.

It takes around 30 mins per evening and has become a ritual. I can play it at work sometimes. I dont play for the sake of it, just do the DQ's.

That is mostly what I do, just the daily quests.

Lots of people use the heron accounts so it might be great for you too! An upvote from Steem Monsters is on the way!

Thank you! I am still on the fence. I just don't like the idea of missing out on a good card :)

I just got to Silver II, but I am not playing every day. I'm out a lot this week. I'm seeing some new cards like that Ettin Spearman. I really just do the daily challenges these days.

I think my two main accounts are in Silver 1 right now. I am not sure how much I will be able to push into Gold with the holidays coming.

I could be wrong on herons, but I don't think the cards are burned I would assume the DEC is split between the person using the account and the person who owns the account. I'm assuming the person who runs herons then owns that card and either puts it on the Splinterlands market, or holds it in hopes of getting a better price in the future, but don't quote me on this.

I'm too coming to the same struggle at this point. I do enjoy playing, but don't play enough to justify just letting the cards sit around, not in my eyes, so debating selling the cards to focus on maxing out more legendaries to rent, or just purchase some more packs in hopes of an airdropped legendary. The struggle is real.

Yeah, I hear you. I guess my understanding was when you convert a card to DEC you are burning it. I also thought that the herons accounts just convert everything to DEC indiscriminately and split the gains. I could be wrong though.

Gold foil! and legend! in one season. congrats.
There are a lot of different combos to do with the new reward cards. The cube is really nice to play when in high mana matches and either player have low health monsters.
