Splinterlands SPS Milestone Reached + Card Improvements

avatar
(Edited)

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone who celebrated Christmas had a great day with your loved ones. Just around the same time, I have noticed that I have finally reached my first milestone for my Splinterlands SPS journey, reaching 50k SPS staked in game. I started staking most of my SPS due to the nice APR it has offered to his holders and as Chaos Legion is being released, we have been advised the more SPS staked, the higher the number of vouchers you can receive to be in the presale. It has been awhile since the last card pack buy so I want to make sure I can secure some Chaos Legion packs before general sale. Knowing my luck, I might not even get a chance securing what I wanted if I leave it to the general sale. So therefore I have collected slowly and here I am over 50000 SPS staked.

The price of SPS have moved up and down the last few months but this hasn't deterred me from staking and buying more. I have been using spare Hive on Hive-engine to get SPS when the price is low and slowly accumulating here and there. I always believe that accumulating slowly hurts less for the wallet than putting out a lump sum. Slowly but surely, the goal will be reached. The reason also why I am staking more is I do want to get more vouchers and hopefully get more packs for the next 2 million packs and get the next airdrop cards. In the past, the airdrop cards have been doing well therefore I will try at least get my hands on some if I can.

Apart from reaching my first SPS milestone by the end of the year, the other thing I have been looking at is to make my existing cards a little stronger, ie leveling them up hoping to get an extra ability for them. The card I have leveled up recently was Gargoya Devil. I love neutral cards as they can be used with any splinters so I try to find upgrade those ones first. I have leveled this card to level 4 so it activated the deathblow ability. I had a number of these single cards and with the current price at under 25c, I think its chance to level this card up.

The other one I upgraded was Pelacor Mercenary. Many people see this as a flesh golem replacement but personally, I still prefer using flesh golem in my lineup. With Pelacor Mercenary currently at around 7c, it is a great card for new players as flesh golem is pretty pricey at the moment. At level 6, you get heal ability therefore at around $7, you can get a card with two strong abilities. I've got mine up to level 7 so I can get a higher life hoping to keep it alive for another round. I'm in the process of leveling this to level 8 as my summoner can support it to this level hopefully get this done without buying anymore cards.

50k SPS is a LOT! Congratulations! How long did it take you to reach that? My next goal is 50 SPS staked 🙈
Have a merry christmas.

Any amount is great no matter high or low. I can't compare to some of the whales on Splinterlands but hitting a milestone feels good! I started staking since the beginning and bought a bit here and there when the price is what I considered low hopefully reaching a bit closer to my goal

Merry Christmas to you too! :)

There's nothing like a milestone!

Although my current stragegy is to sell 90% of it for BNB-BUSD and pool it for cub, I'll use those same funds to buy back when it starts to hit $0.15.

Barring some expertly timed announcement about land or an exchange listing I think the price is going to start tumbling pretty soon.

What's your goal?

At the moment I am deciding if i want to get more vouchers/packs or keep staking as the apr still very attractive. I also want to keep hold of some as I know once land comes out, I will need SPS and DEC to keep them going .... just speculation but from what have mentioned from the AMAs in the past, SPS and DEC will be an important part with land.

The prices might dip a bit but not too much I hope or else probably looking to get more LOL

Next goal is to focus on Chaos Legion first (immediate goal) and see how I can improve my collection since I am in a better position than I did when Untamed was out ....

Happy Holidays! :)

I'm confident that value with flow to SPS long term, I'm just expecting a dip in January. Ultimately I'd like 500K SPS staked before land is released, at least 200K!

And lots of gold cards to stake to that land too.

And probably a fat wad of credits/ DEC to upgrade whatever else comes along with land, I have this feeling that managing land is not going to be cheap, but then again i Imgaine winning battles without what is produced on said land is going to be practically impossible.

It's just a matter of timing when to pick up more SPS for me. I am risking a bit by selling, but there's also the fact that I have to take something out while the going is good. If there's a wider crypto crash in January SL will follow right along with it.

Wow! Congratulations for reaching that 50k mark! If I am not mistaken, you received more or less 300 vouchers during the presale. Opening such big quantity of packs would be very exciting. I assume you stocked a lot of legendary and alchemy potions on your account.

Yes around 300 from my calculation but I have been buying some vouchers as well from the market. I am not intending to open all of them partly because I don't have enough potions but do want to keep the unopened for the airdrop points 😄

That's great! It's good that you have extra fund to buy more vouchers. I also realized that after opening my packs, my airdrop points declined. In my case, still supporting 3 sons so my budget is really tight. I received 6 packs for I only staked 1,020 SPS. I already opened all of them. At first, I was thinking about the use of potions. I never thought that they are not enough. Now my legendary potions are only good to open 1 pack.
