Splinterlands 5 Year Anniversary Event

In celebration of the five year anniversary of the initial launch of the Splinterlands website (then called Steem Monsters) and Alpha pack sale, we will be launching a promotional event where we will be giving away TONS of prizes in the form of various Splinterlands assets that the company has accumulated in its treasury over the past 5 years.

The prizes will include new player Titles, lots of land plots, Runi, and all types of different booster packs, including some Alpha packs! To earn the prizes, players will need to burn DEC or DEC-B and there will be both leaderboard prizes for the players who burn the most as well as random giveaway prizes that are available to everyone who participates.

Event Details & Prizes

The 5 year anniversary event is scheduled to begin during the scheduled maintenance window on Tuesday, May 30th, 2023 and it will run for 30 days, ending on June 29th, 2023.

Players will be able to access and participate in the event through a new tab on the shop page within the Splinterlands website. During the event, players will be able to burn DEC or DEC-B tokens and receive points for each token burned. At the start of the event, players will receive 3 points for each DEC or DEC-B that is burned, and the number of points received will decrease an equal amount every day until the final day of the event when players will receive 1 point for each DEC or DEC-B that is burned.

This way players are encouraged to burn their tokens as early as possible, and it makes it harder for players to snipe the top leaderboard spots at the last minute. Please note that players will need to burn their DEC or DEC-B through the special event page in the Splinterlands shop for it to count for the event. DEC or DEC-B burned via other methods, including manually sending to "null" or upgrading guild buildings, will NOT count.

The players who have the most points at the end of the event will receive the following prizes based on their leaderboard rank:

PlaceRewards
1"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 1 Tract
2"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 50 Plots
3"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 50 Plots
4"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 25 Plots
5"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 25 Plots
6"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 25 Plots
7"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 25 Plots
8"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 10 Plots
9"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 10 Plots
10"The Burninator" Legendary Title + 10 Plots
11 - 60"The Incinerator" Epic Title
61 - 200"The Scorcher" Rare Title

Note that in the event of a tie, the account that reached the final amount first will be considered the winner. Also, if you don't know what "The Burninator" is - please click here.

In addition to the leaderboard competition and rewards, every 10,000 (10k) points that a player earns during the event will provide a chance to receive one of the following items from the prize pool:

  • Land Plot (200 total available)
  • Alpha Pack (100 total available)
  • Beta Pack (250 total available)
  • Untamed Pack (500 total available)
  • Nightmare Pack (1000 total available)
  • Riftwatchers Pack (1000 total available)
  • Runi (25 total available)

Players may earn one item from the list above for EACH 10k points that they earn during the event, so if a player gets 100k points then they will have the chance to earn up to 10 items from the above prize pool, whether or not they are on the leaderboard. Players who place on the leaderboard at the end of the event will receive their specified leaderboard prizes as well as having the chance to receive the above prizes for each 10k points they have earned!

In total, there will be over 3,500 prizes given out as part of the event worth roughly $150,000 at current market prices!

Guild Power

In addition to the awesome prizes listed above, each DEC or DEC-B that is burned will be turned into Guild Power (GP) for that player, which means it will be able to be applied to guild buildings in the near future when the Guild Power feature is released. The feature will change all guild buildings to require Guild Power to upgrade instead of DEC, and Guild Power will be able to be acquired by burning DEC or DEC-B at a 1:1 rate. The difference will be that players take their Guild Power with them when they leave or are kicked from a guild, and then can re-apply it to a new guild later!

This means that if you burn 1000 DEC during this event, then when the Guild Power feature is released you will have 1000 Guild Power that you can apply to the upgrade cost for any guild building, which allows you to get double the value for burning DEC during the event than you would if you were just contributing it to your guild! Even if you're in a guild with maxed out buildings, we are planning to add a number of new guild buildings in the next few months, as well as a leaderboard for the guilds with the most total Guild Power, with lots of great rewards, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to gain value from all of the Guild Power you receive during the event.

Thank You!

It's crazy to think about all of the things that have happened during the past 5 years, both in Splinterlands as well as in the world in general. Back in May of 2018, the project was called Steem Monsters, the Hive blockchain didn't exist, no one had heard of COVID, and bitcoin was worth about $7,000.

The Splinterlands team is both honored and humbled by the unbelievable amount of support and determination we have been shown by our amazing community over the past five years, and we see this event as a great way to give back to the players who make this all possible while also adding significant value to the overall ecosystem (which also benefits players) through burning DEC.

We want to give a big THANK YOU - from the bottom of our hearts - to our players, both old and new, who have stuck it out here through all of those ups and downs. We can't wait to see what the next 5 years will bring!


Stay tuned for more updates from the Splinterlands!

I like the idea, however, you should have added a Common Title not related to the leaderboard, non-tradable, for burning X amount of DEC so people can be guaranteed they get something to remember the event - The Noob Arsonist, The Fried Chicken - whatever.
Happy Anniversary! ;-)

"The Fried Chicken" has my vote LOL.

I've been here since the start and I am still playing Splinterlands 5 years later! Join my Splinterlands tournament LIVE on Twitch at clove71 for a 5-year Happy Birthday Splinterlands playing celebration! 1:00 PM EST!

Congratulations Clove, Happy to know that, amazing 👍

Looking forward to be there. Thumbs up.

There is a second tournament live streamed on Twitch at clove71 scheduled for Wednesday, May 31, 2023 at 7:00 PM EST!

Happy Birthday, Splinterlands! 🎂

This is seriously the coolest event you have done in a long time. Great opportunity for large and even greater benefits for smaller players. Including Guild Points in this makes it an absolute no-brainer to participate. Although I need my DEC for land, I will try to burn some as well. This is a win for all of us. Thank you for being awesome.

May the next five years be glorious!

I'm VERY happy with this set up!

DEC/DEC-B burning be like
Whales -Thank you for being our biggest supporters and being here for the longest time, we want you to benefit the most so for you, we give the Leaderboard
Regular players (majority) - every little DEC/DEC-B burned helps, so you get a chance to get something(hopefully), at least you wont feel getting left behind, sounds fair?
New players (is there even any) - same, you can join and burn DEC (no DEC-B though) to get a chance of getting something instead of investing on sure assets like cards etc -smart move :D
-saw in some forum, is it accurate?

anyway happy anniversary SPL!

Posted using Splintertalk

quite accurate but if you do the math, the required DEC burn isn't that expensive. You can get 10k points for a little less than $3 at the current price. Not to mention, on that 10k points, you can get a minimum of 1 pack. I am quite happy that the Chaos Legion pack isn't included in those prizes.

If you can get an Alpha pack for $3 (if you're lucky), that might've been the best reward you can get in a long time.

Every 10k points will ONLY provide a CHANCE to RECEIVE rewards so it's NOT GUARANTEED. the more players that burns the lesser chance you get especially if other players burns more than you. if you're not in a guild you basically get nothing out of the burning aside from a lottery ticket.

I see majority of players doesn't really care,like me, i'm not happy but i'm not against it either since i know that SPL is only doing it to improve the game economy.

In the end the only ones that will happy will be SPL and the whales.

This is NOT MAINLY to thank players but just an opportunity to improve the game economy. Just my opinion. No hate. I still love the actual game.

It is guaranteed. What is not guaranteed is the price you will get but it is guaranteed that you will get a prize for every 10k points.

"every 10,000 (10k) points that a player earns during the event will provide a chance to receive one of the following items from the prize pool:"

you are wrong! it can never be guaranteed when there are prize limits.
Every 10k points you get a ticket, and that ticket can be a prize or not.
Think about it, if there are 3075 prizes to be distributed other than the ranking, at the beginning of the event each Dec burned gives 3 points, 3333.33 Dec burned = 10 K points = 1 ticket
If only 10M Dec's are burned the chance is 1 ticket = 1 prize...if more Dec's are burned, the chance of receiving a prize decreases, meaning you may not win anything, only GP.

I see. I might've understood it wrong.

" You can get 10k points for a little less than $3 at the current price."

Where do I sign up to get these kinds of prices? By my calculations, 10k DEC is gonna cost you around 8 bucks.

more years to come

Battling since May 2018

i think im in for a while :D

I'm so happy being part of this community, Splinterlands is more than a game is a powerful community.

That's going to be a lot of DEC burned. $0.001 peg might go out the window and SPS might finally see it's day of being a swap for DEC! Awesome way to give back to the community and just make everything stronger. Including there could be huge promotion involved with this to get new players in and old ones active. I'm liking the setup and the thought out plan of how to do it. Well done! Thank you for making an awesome game that just keeps getting better

Great initiative by Splinterlands team to add more utility for DEC in the 5 years anniversary of Splinterlands. Always great to see all of those initiatives (including the idea to add more utility for SPS too)

Anyway, I was thinking that the way we celebrate the anniversary is adding more tournaments 😅, maybe like "5 years anniversary tournament"

Congratulations for the players who have been playing for 5 years 👍

going to but 10kdec b

That's a double down good thing.

  1. If you burn DEC/DEC-B at the start, the rate is a little less than $3 and you get at least a pack from that. Good deal from all sides.
  2. The guild power feature is quite good. I am in a guild right now but I think I am the only active member so burning DEC on this guild for upgrading buildings is kind of useless especially if the guild owner can just kick you anytime. Taking that guild power with you is a dual edged sword but kind of good.

Once it launches, it can be a fight for big dono accounts but even little accounts that contribute here and there will have security that their investment on the guild will not be for naught if ever they left the guild.

This is by far, the best promotion Splinterlands ever offered in my opinion. The required DEC to be burned is affordable even for little people and you are sure to get your money back regardless of what you get. I hope more promotions like this comes in the future and not only those whale-centric promotions.

no guaranteed win for burning DEC - just a chance to win something :(

It is guaranteed. What is not guaranteed is the prize you will get but it is guaranteed that you will get a prize for every 10k points.

"every 10,000 (10k) points that a player earns during the event will provide a chance to receive one of the following items from the prize pool:"

In your own reply you have quoted 'a chance'

Congratulations @splinterlands on five years anniversary keep pushing things forward splinterlands is a most valuable asset for hive blockchain community

Happy Anniversary 🎉

Been around for so long! Didn't realize it's been 5 years already! Thanks a ton being such a cool game. I'll burn some DEC 🔥

Nice to have a great event after a long time. Let's join the fun ,"Burn baby burn"

Happy anniversary Spl.

Happy Anniversary SPL team! This is going to burn a lot of DEC, great idea! Looking forward to it :)

Thanks for all you have done over the years!!!

Crazy event with even crazier prizes! 🤯

I can't believe I've been playing for 5 years! Time Flys! I Will be here for decades to come haha

It's time to burn some DEC!

untitled.gif

Greetings. Congratulations on this 5th anniversary. This week I resumed the game and I think I came at the best time to participate in all these activities.

I'm so happy to have been here for all those 5 years! It has been a wonderful journey and I can't thank the team enough for making this game possible for us!

Hell yeah, congratulations and happy anniversary! :)

I love you, SPL Team and Community! <3

Very well done @splinterlands - so the big DEC holders will get their top position and prizes anyway while the small players have to burn their hard earned DEC for a small chance to win sth. Meaning the gap will increase as usual and this prettty sure will attract tons of new players that are looking for a fun game with mobile capabilities, right? Wow, impressed! SMH :-)

  1. No one has to participate if they don't want
  2. The leaderboard prizes are a small portion of the overall giveaway
  3. This event has nothing to do with attracting new players, it's a giveaway for existing players as a thank you for supporting us these past 5 years

SMH at your ridiculous comment.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it has sense to burn all DEC-B we hava managed to acquire? I mean. If I planned getting DEC-B to help my guild, Splinterlands is giving an extra chance of winning something? Take care!

Ridiculous? @yabapmatt Seems many share these thoughts but anyway.

Burn baby, burn 🔥

Parlavamo del fatto che anche su Splinterlands sarebbe stato bello avere degli eventi ed ecco che esaudiscono il nostro desiderio ahahah @lozio71

A saperlo prima che avevamo questo potere, avremmo potuto metterci a parlare di questo argomento già da un bel po', e magari scrivere anche dei dettagli su quello che avremmo voluto, così da avvantaggiarci. 🤣🤣🤣

Potrebbe valere la pena di fare qualche tentativo anche con altri giochi, e vedere se funziona anche con loro, a questo punto.

Se dovesse realmente essere così, però, credo che il prossimo step sia tentare con i 6 numeri del SuperEnalotto e incrociare le dita... 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

!PGM
!PIZZA
!LOLZ
!LUV
!MEME

Ahahah non sarebbe male come super-potere effettivamente ahahah soprattutto se accompagnato magari anche dalla fortuna necessaria a vincere qualcosa!

!PGM
!LOL

Beh... se funzionasse come ha funzionato per il contest di Splinterlands, basterebbe parlarne, citando i numeri che si pensa potrebbero consentirci la vincita del premio più consistente, e attendere semplicemente che ciò accada.

Il che non sarebbe una cosa poi così spiacevole, visto che mi aiuterebbe a sistemare, in pochissimo tempo, un bel po' di situazioni spiacevoli, e credo che mi consentirebbe anche di togliermi parecchie soddisfazioni...

Purtroppo, però, temo che non sia esattamente così facile, anche se, sognare per un attimo, oltre che essere gratis, è decisamente piacevole.

!PGM
!PIZZA
!LOLZ
!LUV
!MEME

Per fortuna che quello è ancora gratis, davvero, per cui ogni tanto possiamo indugiarci e sognare qualche favolosa botta di culo (magari una Runi nella raffle di Splinterlands con 1 solo ticket ad esempio ahahah)

!PGM
!PIZZA

Una delle poche cose che ancora continuano ad esserlo, fortunatamente, anche se, per come stanno andando le cose, non mi meraviglierei affatto se, un'oggi o un domani, ci si ritrovasse in una situazione in cui anche quello diventasse a pagamento.

Per quanto lo ritenga, quindi, altamente improbabile, se non letteralmente impossibile, non vedo perché non concedersi il permesso di sognare, almeno, una cosa di questo genere, anche se sarebbe, effettivamente, una botta di culo a dir poco stratosferica, ma in fondo ne ho viste di ogni, e, quindi, perché no.

Non so se sei sul gruppo discord di NFT Italia, all'interno del quale c'è anche una sezione dedicata a questo gioco, ma qualche tempo fa c'è stato uno degli utenti che, con un solo Plot, si è ritrovato a pescare un terreno leggendario, con tanto di castello e tutti gli annessi e connessi.

Di conseguenza, ribadisco, perché, almeno, non concedersi il lusso di sognare e poi stare a vedere che cosa succede?!?

No, non sono sul gruppo, ma che botta di culo stratosferica quel tipo ahahah di certo sarà stata una giornata memorabile per lui!

I'm amazed at how much value there is in this ecosystem. Burninators unite!

Steem Monsters/Splinterlands was one of my favorite video games for years. I started it with the Beta starter set on 2018.12.30, but I stopped playing it months ago, because the game became too hard to play (for me and for many other people too). And I have not played any video games in the previous one month. But generally I like video games, and I played many video games a lot in the past.

Good luck and have fun to those, who are playing Splinterlands.

Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings and much love from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.

Happy Birthday :)

Im not a fan of lotteries tbh. I feel like this isnt really giving back either. I get that the dollar amount in prizes will exceed the amount we probably burn but lotteries never seem like winning opportunities to me. I think I'll take yalls advice about how we dont have to buy everything and skip this anniversary event unless I happen to need to upgrade something in my guild. Maybe a reward for actually playing the game next time??

I was wrong, We burned way more than the price of the prizes and it seems to have brought us together as a community. While I would have loved a special card in the chests that we could only earn for these 30 days I can also admit I was super wrong. Very well done

Players **MAY **earn one item from the list above for EACH 10k points that they earn during the event... ....Players who place on the leaderboard at the end of the event will receive their specified leaderboard prizes as well as having the **CHANCE **to receive the above prizes for each 10k points they have earned

so if i earn 10k points, i will earn a CHANCE to receive an item from the prize pool...

so it's a lottery?

Similar yes

Congratulations splinterlands. Waiting for the Event. 😍

That's a good idea for DEC burning. I hope DEC will be pegged at its core value some day.
HBD Splinterlands.
