From Rags to Riches or in other words how I'm progressing to becoming a Starbits Millionaire!
As a quick summary, I started in RisingStar in May 2021 but just drifted with it till I started blogging about RisingStar at the end of August 2021 and decided to chart my progress to becoming a Starbits Millionaire.
It's not rocket science but in short what is the quest - the quest is to bank 1,000,000 starbits and get the Starbits Millionaire Card! Primarily as a free to play player but if I find a pocket of crypto floating around I might just speed up the process too!
Still tweaking the metrics but the current report is as follows:
Lets start with the basics
- Missions completed - I managed to do 96 missions this week. I've done a few more "Radio Interviews" to fill in time.
- Cards owned - Woot - a few new cards - I bought a couple of cards to up my fan level. I couldn't help it, just had to do it. More on this a bit later.
- Starbits - In game increase of only 1,800 but more on this later.
- Skill/Fans/Ego - Still managing to keep this ratio in check so that's good as there's no impact on my earnings due to ego yet.
- Level 61 - Still averaging around two levels a week.
Diesel Pool & Hive Pizza/Starbits Balances
The risk this week hasn't been so worth it - the value of the amount I put in the pool decreased by about 6%. Overall from the very first investment in the pool I'm up but it's been a bit of a sad week on this front. I think part of the reason for this is that PIZZA has fallen a fair bit since I started - hopefully it recovers! I'll stick with the pool a while - my daily rewards are creeping up which will help a bit.
As alluded to above I couldn't help it - I had to spend a little to up my fans so I could do the Record a Demo mission (and with some drunken fans the Acoustic Tent mission). Just felt I needed to progress a little.
I withdrew 25,000 from in game and spent about 16,000 on three cards - a repeat R76 George with 100 fans/150 skill for only 3,000, a R79 Katie with 100 fans and 175 skill for 7,000 and a R54 Ellie with 120 fans and 150 skill for 6,000. All very good deals I think. This has proven to be a good investment as it's enabled me to do some new missions, increased my Skill to Ego ratio a bit and increases my average starbits per mission a little. It also just feels good to have some new cards and progress along the missions a little!
Current Strategy and considerations
Slight change in strategy - doing some even longer missions (record a demo/acoustic tent) when I can and then balancing that off with a music lesson & short 5 minute missions to burn up the energy pool and using a pizza slice to repeat. Basically its the same strategy as before but with slightly different missions. It will be interesting to see how many bits I make over the week with a whole week doing this.
The pool hasn't helped this week but hopefully it recovers. I may just decide to cut my losses at some point and just store the bits but havent decided yet.
And that sums things up for another week - let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts.
