Exciting times in the world of Splinterlands!

I'm sure if you are following the game, you'll know about the new summoner that is being revealed at Splinterfest, the DeFi pools opening up and of course, the end of the SPS air drop. It's bringing the entire game into new territory and again, like I've mentioned before...I'm more bullish than ever.

If my country ever relaxes their COVID laws, I might try to drive down to Las Vegas for Splinterfest. It's not toooooooo far away and gives me an excuse to go to Vegas lol

Last week, I reached a few milestones that I wanted to share with you, hope you guys enjoy my journey in the game :)

Maverick Status Unlocked!

For a lot of veterans in the game, they reached this during the Chaos Legion pre-sale. For the rest of us common folk, we had to grind over the past few months. But last week, I hit a goal I never thought was even possible...

4 bucks per pack was expensive! So when DEC lost it's peg and I could basically get Chaos Legion packs for almost 50% off...I started stacking them up. And late last week, I reach 1000 packs purchased!

I even got my fancy title in the #Splinterlands Discord too...I feel like a winner!!!!!

Champions League...Me?

I kept getting my butt whooped in Modern league, so I've been focusing on WILD.

And after a few win streaks, blind luck, and some opponents leaving the match...I actually hit Champions league last season.

Yeah, I know....Jongo??? I still can't believe it but my new addiction to the actual game play and strategy has helped me a ton.

O.K. full disclaimer...I hit Champions league and never played a single match though lol It was near the end of the season and I knew I would lose...Hey, it's slow and steady for me!

Bila...Maxed!

There was a great post by @rosiew earlier this week about 'What our favorite card is in the game'? The must have on your wish list...

If you would have asked me this, 6 months ago, I would have screamed from the mountain tops....Yodin.

Now don't get me wrong, he's amazing. However there is a card I keep using over and over again...Which still to me, flies under the radar...

Bila is it for me! And this week, I finally grabbed the few copies I needed to get her maxed out! She might seem pricey (mana wise) but to me, that 4 magic is killer...Combined with life leech and stun, she's just really hard to defend.

I'm planning another post on my @jonnycoin account later this week too, because I did some 'additions' to my Life Splinter as well on the summoner side of things, and I'll share that later...Once again, it's my favorite splinter so I love working on levelling it up!

All in all, it was a great week for me in @splinterlands...Even with my little emergency two nights ago. I am still competing and learning more and more about how to possibly, in time, make Splinterlands....Dare I say it...A full time income???

Hey we can dream right?

I’ve come across you every so often and enjoy the battle of someone who actually posts on hive, not just some random bot account. I think we’re at 2/3, you’ve beat me twice and I’ve beat you once. Fun stuff!

Bila is definitely a great card! I have it level 2 but would love to get it level 3 for the stun, that’s an awesome skill to have! Some of my best battles are with her, the life leech is such a fun skill to have and has helped me our numerous times.

I'm getting my butt whooped a lot this season. It's like as soon as you reach a higher level, the reset of the season stats makes it so much harder to put wins together lol

!CTP

Dare I say it...A full time income???

Who knows. That would be fantastic ;-)

Dreaming for sure, but wow, it would be nice!

!CTP

Congratulations, Jon! Nice milestone!
!CTP

You're welcome and Have a great weekend, Jon 😀

Yay! What a great post!! Thank you very much for the shout out by the way. :) I beat that lovely card today and had a giggle to myself... all you guys who love Bila, and she is a fantastic card, but I might do a battle post about it because it made me laugh that I beat her with my humble cards. :) Have a great day!!

I do lose with her, but generally I stash her in the middle of my higher mana matches. She just adds health and seems to avoid the damage.

!CTP

Yes she seems like an amazing card. I'll be keeping my eye out for her as I build up my collection. :) She is definitely a winner! :)

Great work Jon! I've got a few additions lined up too. Need to check out these packs if they are on offer!!

Yeah man, when DC isn't on peg, it's always a discount on packs lol

!CTP

Congratulations on the milestone of unlocking Maverick status and nice knowing a lot of excitement came with achieving this.

I'm pretty excited about it all :)

!CTP

Congratulations, fantastic. I have to catch up a bit on the latest changes but there are many things that I like. It is really being a profitable game and a great contribution to the Hive ecosystem.
!CTP

Yeah and I mean, I dont think it's going to pay the bills right now for a lot of people...But long term!

!CTP

I thought the Maverick was 500 packs or did they change that recently? I haven't really been checking the discord much but it was around that amount when I bought in during the untamed era.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nah they changed it with the release of Chaos. Needed 1000 now.

!CTP

welcomd to the crew brother!!!

A wee bit longer than expected lol

!CTP

Congratulations, keep up the success.

Thank you sir!

I am still competing and learning more and more about how to possibly, in time, make Splinterlands....Dare I say it...A full time income???

Is this even possible by playing Splinterlands? Maybe with investing/delegating its tokens (DEC, SPS, SPT) to earn a passive income with them. But we need a huge amount of these tokens to have a full time income. And we can lease out Splinterlands cards too to earn DEC.

Hey we can dream right?

This is what it is. A dream to many of us (Splinterlands players). At least currently. Nowadays the reward system gives pocket money to most players. Maybe the top players in the higher leagues are earning a better amount, but currently I do not know no one, who would make a living simply by playing Splinterlands.

By playing it, there may be potential when player staking comes in...But I'm thinking the whole package. Investing, playing, etc.

!CTP

Congrats on becoming a Maverick. Looks like the Liquidity Pools for SPS will fit in nicely with you stacks of SPS. Are you unstacking some from the main stack to join the LP's?

!CTP

Nah just taking the daily I'm getting from my staked SPS, and then putting it into some pools. Seems to be working, and a decent return.

!CTP

Congrats and welcome to the Mavs! Building a Collection is just as excited (and sometimes frustrating) than competing!

It's crazy how much you learn about the cards, abilities and strategies the more you play. No amount of 'reading' or watching videos could have helped me understand the basics like this

!CTP

Congrats!

And looks like you discovered Super Bila! I used to rent her when I was playing diamond and she can be quite tanky, esp with the Blast ruleset and stun.....Stun is nuts

Oh she's awesome. I had her at level 3 for the longest time, because of stun...Just loved it. But figured seeing that I'm actually playing in higher levels now, I should get her maxed.

!CTP

Congrats to you for completing the marverick mission have a successful day😎
