It's been only a couple of days that the Chaos Legion set has been released, but honestly seems ages. I have personally never saw anything like that in Splinterlands: I started playing 18 months ago in the Untamed era, and during this timespan, I have not seen the game changing so much like it did in the last 2-3 days.
Chaos Legion at the very end did exactly what promised: it shook the Splinterlands ecosystem from the roots. There are now tons of new cards to play with, some of them with new abilities, and this will lead to many players changing usual lineups. This will probably affect heavily also the market, for now in an unpredictable way: some cards will drop, some will rise. First of all the players need to adapt to the new scenario.
My first impression is that now the game is way more varied and, somehow, fun: some of the old players will now have new lineups to face, new strategies will be developed in the newt days.
As always, the best way to understand all the dynamics going on is by playing, reading the stats, and copying from the best.
Do you want an example? Until yesterday if you needed a Life tank, level 4, with Shield ability, you had to go with Silvershied Paladin, at least 50$. Now you can have a similar card with Chaos Knight for about 5S.
This will make a lot of new players more competitive, at least until January when we will have splitted leaderboards.
My overall opinion is that the game needed something like that to let new players fully embrace the Splinterland experience: otherwise with almost all the cards out of print the entry-level for a newbie would have been set too high, letting them with the feeling they came too late.
When I started playing Splinterlands was a hidden gem, with less than 10.000 active players. Now it's a rising star in the crypto world, with over half a million active players, and it's extremely important that all these new members of the community have a fair chance to make the same journey we did.
Chaos Legion is necessary to scale the ecosystem up, and hopefully, we will all benefit from that in the long term.
