Splinterlands - I made it to the Gold I league !!!
I know a few of you don't like Splinterlands posts, but I hope you'll either scroll past this, or indulge me occasionally.
I've been watching my friends in discord, telegram and even the Roaring Twenties guild boasting about how they made it to either the Diamond or Champion leagues and it's been bitter-sweet.
Firstly, I am proud of their success with this game and know that the prizes that they have won, while a little less than before with the new Loot Chest reward system, but still substantial at their level.
Any bitterness, and it's minimal believe me, comes from comparison and envy.
See, it's only recently that I started playing with the seasons in mind rather than just doing the daily quests and I've struggled to get into the Gold leagues of the rankings.
So, for the first time ever I finally made it to the Gold I league, one level below the Diamond leagues, before starting to slide back again. It's a good thing the prizes are awarded at the highest level you reach within a season! :)
After a hiatus,@holoz0r is BACK! And after telling me it would take a while to match me in the Gold III league, he flew past me straight into the Diamond III league! Awesome stuff.
That didn't take long at all. You can see why I'm a little green with envy.
It's all good really, I am just glad to see him back, and hopefully gain access to his new analytics of the cards, their combine and burn rates, prices, etc. These are exciting times indeed!
Anyway, when the season is over, I got this message:
I've got my eyes on the prize
After clicking on Claim Prize, you will see a page like this:
30 Loot Chests waiting to be opened...
You have a choice of clicking "Reveal All" up the top, or opening each chest one by one.
Personally, I like the build up of suspense of opening each one, like opening a Christmas advent calendar, counting down to Christmas Day.
Because the cards and other prizes are too large to display (or rather, I'm not going to spend hours editing screenshots together :)) I will just show my rewards page from peakmonsters.
My favourite of this batch is the Nectar Queen.
Other prizes included:
333 Dark Energy Crystals (DEC) total
5 Legendary Potions
6 Alchemy Potions
I've heard people complaining about the limited rewards this season, but I understand why it's being done.
This is still a great game and I will continue to play it.
Until next time, see you in the Splinterlands!

As a side note, there was a little bit of controversy that lead to the name change of the card to Flame Monkey.
I won't go into it, but I am glad that it's been resolved.
