Welcome to another article where I write about my journey playing Splinterlands! This season was a particularly short one, ending early due to there being an update on the 15th of August. The next season is a particularly long one because of this, being about 17 days long.
The deployment of the next phase of land to public testing didn't happen, and is delayed until "it's ready for testing". No major updates this past week, with a few bug fixes being rolled out and Splinterlands finally accepting their soccer game's tokens for purchasing Credits to use on the Splinterlands market. This next phase of land was said to be coming out in August, which at this point I'm presuming to mean the last week of August.
I did open a couple of Chaos Legion packs this past week:
With some disappointing results. Both packs just had the minimum single rare card and nothing of note beyond that.
Guild Brawl #167, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild came in 4th last place, with one person failing to submit teams. A lot of the guild isn't even signing up for brawls, and we haven't had any new people join. This is probably my own fault in part, though it's a bit awkward for me to try to recruit people now. Anyhow, I did well in my matches:
I also opened one Gladiator pack, getting much better results:
This season I just managed to limp up to Gold III on my alternate account at the end of season, and Diamond III on my main. I played a tiny bit of Wild format on my alternate account, as I didn't want to drop out of Gold league, and was doing much better than I had been doing in Modern. I'm starting to think that maybe I should switch back to beating up more poorly equipped bots, as the real players in Modern tend to have a lot more max level cards - at least in Silver on my alt.
I didn't get a ton of chests this season, and nothing too exciting for rewards. Maybe I should stop jumping up to Gold at end of season on my alt, as I'd probably have a lot more chests if I was getting Silver season chests in Silver league. Here's what I got this season:
My alternate accounts season rewards, which were Gold league quality chests.
Diamond chests, which are mostly unimpressive. The gold commons are nice finds, but no packs of legendary cards.
As I said, I expect land 1.5 will be out around the end of the month, unless it gets delayed yet again. I don't really see that happening, since the company seems pretty focused on getting it out the door. I'm not sure it's going to be the magical fix for card and token prices that people are hoping for, but maybe it will make cards a bit rarer again.
And, that’s about it for this week. I’ll be back in about a week with an update. Thank you for reading and if you have any questions or comments, please let me know below!
