Why is everyone hating on the chicken?

Why is everyone dumping their chickens?

The market price of the Furious Chicken has tumbled from $35+/BCX to about $21/BCX for a single unlevelled chicken... and a lvl 6 or lvl 7 chicken is going to cost you just $8.88/BCX now.

WHY? WHY? WHY?

Fair enough... I get that the new Chaos Legion Fiends are the newest (and better) 0-mana options, and if I have just 1 slot left in my line-up, I'm definitely taking a Fiend over a chicken... BUT... what if you have 2 (or more) slots open... as is often the case in very low mana cap games.

Take this battle ( https://splinterlands.com?p=battle&id=sl_b4f604f9d78955a3aec64ffff796b1fc&ref=braaiboy ) for example...

P.s. I was on a snipe quest, hence the inclusion of the (rather expensive) Mantoid in this game. I almost certainly would have had a different line-up were it not for the requirement of including a sniper... but even with 2 x lower mana cost cards, I would STILL have had 2 open slots.

So yes, while the Scorch Fiend dealt the final blow, my fiend would not have survived were it not for the chicken 'taking one for the team', leaving my Mantoid in the first position, and unable to attack I would have lost the game.

Never heard of Splinterlands?

If you're reading this because of a Facebook or Twitter post, you might not have heard of Splinterlands before...

In short:

@Splinterlands is an online blockchain game built on the Hive blockchain. It is similar to Magic: The Gathering and other trading card games... but now each card is an NFT & these NFT's and other in game assets are tradable and have real monetary value. #SCORE!

OH the pain of the Chicken Hate!

This is normal in any trading card when a new set comes out.
People liquidate their card holdings to stock up on cards.

I am sure the Chicken will recover.
I may pick up a few if they get cheap enough.

Yeah... I get that a bit of a drop is to be expected (managed to scoop up a few Wavesmiths & Oshannus' on low-ball offers)... but I don't get the chicken's drop.

Anyway... I'm happy (except that now I have chicken FOMO) 😜

Because every one knows they are not even real meat! More like a vegetable like a cucumber or squash! lolol I know very very little about Splinterlands, but I'm hoping to take some time to research it. I was just coming back on hive when the chaos packs arrived so I bought a few even though I knew nothing about it! lol

WAHAHAHAHAHAA... Yeah, chicken IS a vegetable 🥒🥒🥒

Re getting in to Splinterlands: I'd highly recommend doing some research into it. Yes, the economics are great and lots of $$$ to be made, but more NB: it's a really cool game.

That is a decent size drop. The price might uptick again once the new second ranked battle league is put in place. !BEER / !PIZZA

Yeah, a lot of the older edition cards took a dip and will see gains in the coming months again... I'm just torn between picking up more chickens and picking up new packs now though.

Prices are falling across the board for the most part. The sudden influx of 15 million packs of new cards over the next few months is going to flood the game with supply and it will take a while for it to get soaked up.

I think most of the old cards came down in price as there is now a big supply of new cards on the market, some at very cheap prices. I believe the older cards will still reduce in price, before they start to become more expensive again!! (This could be our chance to level up some of our older monsters)

I was buying Kelps the other day at $15 and today they are $4. I think part of it is the liquidating of all cards but also there seems to be a glitch that's driving prices down harder than they would be otherwise.

After buying a few $15 kelp initiates I noticed about 15 of them wen ton the market for $8.72. I threw in some credits and tried to buy them but I kept getting the message that they were no longer available. I tried on and off all day because they were still there and it kept failing. Today--many days later-- I see they are STILL there even though its been several days and of course, the next sellers undercut it until a $15 card is selling for $4. Which when I tried to buy, gave me the same error.

There's a lot going on out there that hurting an already strained system. The collapse of players and the rental market hasn't helped either. Today the rental market did the same numbers it did in the second half of August when there were 1/5 the active players.

hmmmm... now that you mention it, I noticed the same thing the other day... tried to buy some random commons with credits from an abandoned ALT account... and the first page of (very low priced) cards all gave errors when trying to add them to my cart.

...and then like you say: The next seller tries to undercut when dumping their spares, which has a ripple effect.
