Welcome to another article where I write about my journey playing Splinterlands! It has been a fairly quiet week, with most of the big things happening after the end of this season, such as Lux Vega finally going on sale several weeks after Splinterfest. The biggest news from the past week was probably the rollout of phase one of Tech Modernization, replacing the login with a newer, seemingly slower, one.
I’ll cover updates that happened after this season next week. This week, let’s just focus on what happened during the first half of the November 2022 season, starting off with the breakdown of the past week:

To celebrate the first air drop card for Riftwatcher’s being released last week, I opened up 20 packs to see if I could find one:
Guild Brawl #114, playing Bronze League Gold Foil Only. The guild came in third from last place, continuing our mediocre stay in Tier two brawls. Starting next week, SPS rewards are being added to brawls, and we’ll see if that bring out any more people to actually play in the brawl battles.
Vs. ZEESHANNAQVI3RD of GLADIATORS III
Vs. SARGUY43E of ICED NFTEA-THE DOJO
Vs. DOGFALL of SPLINTER SKULLS
Vs. MIKO67-004 of WASH-RINSE-REPEAT
Vs. PRINCE.RENNYN of CARDS OF FURY
I also got one more Gladiator pack:
As usual, no real trading or tournaments. I finished out the season in Diamond on my main and Gold on my InvestYGator account, which is also fairly usual at this point. Here’s what I got for rewards:
The season was a bit of a grind, dropping down and climbing back up within the league over and over again. Well, my Silver league alt account was a bit easier to just grind out matches on. Looking back over the past week, the rewards were fairly decent for the season overall.
I do need to spent some time adjusting my card collection. With the upcoming change to reduce focus points earned from battles for playing lower level cards, I need to look at shifting some higher level cards to my alt and possibly trying to level up some cards on my main. Though, the expense of the latter is probably going to be a bit prohibitive, so at least renting out a lot of my extra cards would probably be a good idea.
The plan for the next season is pretty much the same, try to struggle into Diamond league on my main, while just getting to Silver I on my alt and farming extra rewards. Though, the notion of scaling down to only playing one account is kind of appealing from a time perspective. It can take a while to run through enough games each day.
And that’s about it for this season report. Thank you for reading! I’ll be back next week with an article on the changes coming in at the start of this new season!
