The beginning of the presale of the packs of cards of the new Splinterlands cards collection, the Chaos Legion collection, is really coming.
The pre-sale will start in less than two days: 1 day and 17 hours!

Two days ago I published a post in which I shared some of my calculations, hypothesis and considerations on the convenience or not to participate to the Chaos Legion presale.

Yesterday, the Splinterlands team held an AMA (Ask Me Anithing) that cleared up some doubts about the presale and highlighted additional benefits for those who will participate in the presale.
You can find the latest post published by @splinterlands with a recap of the October 15, 2021 AMA at the following link:

Pre-sale benefits

(Update After AMA)


Bonus Bulk Purchase


image.png
As stated in the post published by Splinterlands (AMA):

To receive the 20%, 15%, and 10% bonus amounts, you need to do buy as a single transaction.

To receive the additional card packs as a bonus, you need to buy the minimum number of card packs necessary to receive the bonus in a single transaction.
For example, if you buy 50 packs of cards in a first transaction and 50 packs of cards in a second transaction, you will not be eligible for the 10 additional packs bonus.

Title The Legionnaire, Maverick Status, Limited Edition Promo Card


Except for the bonus for purchasing multiple packs of cards in a single transaction, all other benefits can be earned in subsequent steps and transactions.

All other pre-sale rewards will accumulate as you buy

The big news to come out of the Splinterlands AMA is that:

Bonus packs will count towards all pre-sale benefits (title, Maverick status, promo card).

So even Bonus packs will count towards all pre-sale benefits.
This is an important new feature that allows you to achieve some benefits by buying fewer packs of cards.Thanks to this new feature, for example, obtaining the title "The legionaire" will be easier!

Title The Legionnaire


Thanks to the latest novelty to get the Title The Legionaire will be enough to buy:

  • 870 packs of cards in one transaction (see calculations in the following image).


image.png

  • 910 packs of cards (purchase divisible into 8 transactions of 100 packs and one transaction of 110 packs)


image.png
Both purchased packs and "The Legionnaire" titles will be immediately counted in the Splintershards token airdrop (SPS) score calculation.The Legionnaire title will be worth 100000 SPS points.

The Legionnaire title will be worth the same as the Untamed & Explorer titles (100k SPS points).
Chaos Legion packs and the Legionnaire title will count towards the SPS airdrop immediately

The Legionnaire title will be cumulative: whoever acquires 2000 packs of cards during the presale will be entitled to 2 titles that will be worth 200k SPS points.Note: only the packs of cards purchased from the Shop section of the Splinterlands website will be considered for the attribution of the title "The Legionnaire".

Limited Edition Promo Card Airdrop


The additional benefit for those participating in the Chaos Legion presale is the chance to receive one or more limited edition Promo cards.
The features and battle statistics of the card that will be distributed via airdrop to pre-sale participants are not yet known.
image.png
But as announced during the AMA the promo card will be a card with strong features:

Teams goal is to make the new promo card awesome and highly sought after.

Note: only the packs of cards purchased from the Shop section of Splinterlands website will be considered for the airdrop of the promo card.The same applies to the Promo card as before for "The Legionnaire" title, and including bonus packs in obtaining presale benefits will allow you to receive an additional number of Promo cards by buying fewer card packs.Every 50 card packs purchased during the presale will be guaranteed to receive 1 limited edition promo card.
**For every 1000 packs of cards purchased during the presale, you are guaranteed to receive 1 limited edition GOLD promo card.Whoever buys 1 pack of cards during the presale will have 2% chance to receive via airdrop at the end of the presale one limited-edition promo card.Those who buy 50 packs of cards during the presale will have:

  • 2% chance for every pack of cards purchased to receive the limited-edition promo card get the guarantee to receive a limited-edition promo card.
  • the guarantee to receive a limited edition promo card

Those who buy 137 packs of cards in one transaction will get:

  • 2% chance for each card pack purchased to receive the limited edition promo card.
  • +10% bonus packs (13 bonus packs)
  • guarantee to receive 3 limited edition promo cards (this is the big news)


image.png
If I buy 100 packs of cards I am guaranteed to receive 2 promo cards
If I purchase 137 cards in one transaction I will receive 3 promo cards instead of two.

New Leaderboard for Chaos Legion presale participants


As announced in the AMA post published by Splinterlands a leaderboard will be introduced in the game to reward players who purchased Chaos Legion card packs during the presale.

There will be a separate leaderboard page for Chaos Legion pre-sale buyers.

This is another important new feature that introduces an additional benefit and incentive for buyers of Chaos Legion card packs.Benefits based on the number of card packs purchasedThe benefits for those who participate in the Chaos Legion presale will not be the same for all participants and will depend primarily on the number of card packs purchased during the presale.
+ card packs purchased = + benefits

The token Vouchers


Splinterlands is my favorite blockchain game and so far it has given me fun and financial satisfaction.
In 23 months of playing and investing on Splinterlands I got a really good profit: + 36201$ for an investment cost of only 524$.
image.png
I would have liked to get 1000 packs of cards in the Chaos Legion presale (purchase of 870 packs of cards in one transaction) but I will not be able to make my desired purchase because I will not receive enough VOUCHER tokens to make the desired purchaseNo Voucher = No Party! (No Pack!)During the presale, 1 million Chaos Legion card packs will be made available for purchase and 1 million Voucher tokens will be distributed at the same time.
The requirement to buy a pack of cards is to have and use a Voucher token.

1 Chaos Legion card pack purchased = 1 token Voucher used

The Voucher token distribution mechanism


Starting on the first day of the presale of the Chaos Legion collection card packs and every day for the duration of 30 days, an amount of 333 Vouchers will be distributed to players who have staked their SPS tokens according to the following formula:33333 / total SPS staked * SPS staked by playerCalculate the number of tokens you can receive in relation to the amount of SPS tokens staked is easy thanks to the calculator of the site https://www.splintercards.com/tool-vouchers.html
image.png
The updated number of VOUCHER tokens I should receive daily starting October 18, 2021 is 2.45 Voucher tokens per day for a total of 73 Voucher tokens in 30 days.
image.png
With 73 token Voucher I will only be able to purchase 73 packs, I will not get any bonus on my purchase and I will only receive 1 guaranteed promo card.
image.png
To get to the first case of "Smart" purchase I would have to buy 64 VOUCHER tokens to be able to buy 137 packs of Chaos Legion cards and get 150 packs of cards + 3 promo cards.
image.png
Obviously the calculation returned by the Splintercards site is an estimated calculation because if the total amount of SPS tokens staked will increase during the presale and I don't increase the number of SPS tokens staked, the amount of Voucher tokens I will receive will decrease.In fact two days ago, on October 13, 2021, the number of SPS tokens staked was 135653888 and today it has increased to over 139 million tokens.

What will be the sale value of VOUCHER tokens?


We will know the answer to this question when there will be the first sales offers on the markets of:

Voucher tokens will be distributed on the first day of the pre-sale so it's not possible to buy them today but on Hive Engine there are already offers to buy them.
image.png
I checked the purchase offers two days ago and the situation remained almost the same.
As you can see in the image above, leaving out the first purchase offer which is a fraction of a token (0.001) and therefore irrelevant, user @trifenix has kept his purchase offer and is willing to buy a VOUCHER token for the price of 20 HIVE.
There is no longer an offer from user @shauner who has removed his purchase offer (in my opinion he did the right thing).
Users @fau12345@xerxesdave@snaiper1731@tornflesh and @kungfukid are willing to buy VOUCHER tokens for the price of about 10 HIVE.Based on the current value of the HIVE tokens (1 HIVE = $0.772).20 HIVE = $15.44
10 HIVE = $7.72If we assume that the average cost of a VOUCHER token will be during the presale of 10 HIVE and the HIVE token will maintain today's value a Voucher token would cost 1.93 times the cost of a pack of Chaos Legion cards.Those who will not have VOUCHER tokens and want to purchase 137 packs to receive 150 will have to spend:

  • 548$ to purchase Chaos Legion card packs ($4 * 137 card packs).
  • 1057.64 for the purchase of VOUCHER tokens (7.72$ * 137 packs of cards).

With this purchase the hypothetical buyer will receive three limited edition promo cards and his purchase will have been profitable if the three promo cards he will receive are worth more than 1057.64$ (in the short or long term) otherwise he will have had a loss.

As announced in the AMA post published by Splinterlands:

Vouchers will not be completely useless after Chaos Legion pre-sale.
Current plan is still to require vouchers past pre-sale for a bit (wait for official announcement)
Goal is to give the SPS token as much utility as possible
Metering out public sale will affect teams income so this decision doesn't benefit team

VOUCHER tokens will play an important role even after the presale.
In his helpful post, @rosiew published the following question and answer from the Splinterlands AMA:

On normal sales, is no voucher needed?
The exact details will be published. For some amount of time going forward we still plan to meter out the voucher system but at some point we will remove the voucher system completely.
Perhaps bonus packs have to have vouchers (just something we are talking about).
We're actually trying to meter out how much money we make from this to slow it down.

So for future updates on the use of VOUCHER tokens we'll have to wait for future announcements from the Splinterlands team.

Conclusion


With this post, I tried to show the most beneficial purchase cases based on the news announced by Splinterlands during the October 15 AMA, and I hope my post will be useful to those who asked me for advice and to those who will participate in the Chaos Legion presale.As I wrote in my previous post, my participation in the Chaos Legion presale and the amount of my investment will depend on two important elements to consider and evaluate:

  • voucher token sales value.
  • battle statistics and potential value of the limited edition promo card.

In the following image is the table I created that summarizes some important details of the Chaos Legion presale.
image.png
The changes announced in the AMA by Splinterlands have added benefits to Chaos Legion presale participation and will change the previous purchasing strategies of presale participants.
The most important changes are as follows:

  • The counting of bonus packs in presale rewards
  • A ranking for presale participants
  • The immediate validity of purchased card packs and titles received in the calculation of the SPS token airdrop score.

Do you like the new features introduced by Splinterlands?
What strategy did you choose to follow for the presale?
Tell me in the comments your intentions and plans for the purchase and I'll be happy to read and comment.
I hope you liked this post and thank you for taking the time to read it :)
