Playing the hive game.



image.png


It's all a game.



Life is a game but hive even more so. There are various levels, skills, achievements, groups.

You start at the beginning with little to no knowledge and over time build your account, fill your inventory and raise your level.

Life itself is a game. We go through a lot of the same processes as we grow our life balance. Make connections, build up assets. It's a big game and one that you play for a long time. The biggest problem with it is that you are jumping into another persons game.

The rules are set in their favor. The bosses have full advantage in their world and to get up the levels you have to do it slowly and work at an unfair advantage.



Hive is a different game.



While hive is still a game in the same genre. The rules are different. The game isn't weighted against you.

Sure it has unwritten rules, powerful bosses and the possibility of getting knocked down a few pegs but the system is the same for everybody. The rules are in the code and since everybody can see those rules they are on a level pegging.

Anybody can rise through the different levels by putting in the time and grinding it out. You can pay your way to the top and buy items and influence. You can make good connections and clan up to succeed. Find your tribe and grow as a group.

You can build a project and get others to back your vision. Add something to the system that helps you to grow in the game.



It's a long term game



I post about this topic more than anything else on hive.

Long term thinking is key to anything. If you look at the most successful player of any game i would bet that most of them have put thousands of hours into getting there. Hive is no different. The people that i have given the most support to are the ones that have been here every day. We are playing at the same level and have been competing and supporting each other for years.

New players find it hard to get support but they are playing in the lower levels. Trying to get to grips with the game and rise through the ranks. We have all been there and are the ones who didn't give up. Who kept playing and wanted to win the game.

The are still plenty ranks to climb before making it to the top and it will take even more years to do it. But that is where all of the fun is. Growing inventory. Making new connections. Forming groups and powering up to level up.

You don't have to play if you don't like. But if you do you should play to win.

Exactly. All of the layers keep stacking on top of each other and over the next few years will create more and more demand for hive every time.

It's a positive cycle that will keep growing as long as the community are interested and want to keep it going.

This is the best part of it. Hard work and consistency paying over time.

I tell my mentees on hive that you have to build resilience and relationships before you can make a few bucks on hive

I can see the benefits now for all of the time that i put into building this account over the past three years.

Time and effort will get you there in the end as long as you have the interest to keep going. It can be a grind at times but will be worth it for anybody that wants to get there.

And it’s an expanding game. H-E opened a whole new world of opportunities for play. Things like Splinterlands are effectively a game within a game.

It started off with just a blogging site but one team has expanded the whole system with hive-engine. Opened up a whole new level.

It will be interesting to see who can make the next big jump and bring another level to it. The best games keep evolving and throwing up new challenges.

I can’t be happier to be here in this moment to have absorbed the entire community into my consciousness to be part of a revolution in its early stages. You couldn’t have said these better. Cheers.

Things are very positive around here at the moment. We are seeing a lot of new people, projects and enthusiasm to build more.

Still early days but we can see where things might go form here.

I agree that we are in a Long Term Game. I have Recently Read About a Number of People that Walked Away from Splinterlands and Sold all of Their Cards. Now They Are Kicking Themselves in Hindsight for Taking such a Short Sighted View @niallon11........
I even have People that are not involved in Splinterlands at All and They tell Me It's Just a FAD and It Will Die Off Soon and my Cards will be of No Value.............
I Beg to Differ and it is still Only The Beginning of The Long Run I can't Wait to See What Happens When The LAND part of The Game Becomes Active...........
Stay POSITIVE and Keep High Vibrations...............

I sold all my cards several times. Luckily for me I bought back last April/May right before the pushing and shoving started. If I hadn't I would be devastated now.

Like many other people, before I never viewed the game in terms of long term. Now I feel like I should have realized a long time ago that a fun addictive game which involves crypto is eventually going to catch fire in popularity. I have also realized that I should have had more faith in the creators protecting long term investors which they have done through things like making older edition of cards worth more DEC, etc. I'm definitely going to be hodling my Splinterland assets at this point.

I have no problem with selling and it can often be the right move as crypto is volatile. Taking profits is smart when things are hot and gets you ready to buy back if things drop as they often do.

I have sold some cards since the start and wish i hadn't now but have the majority of them still since i liked the game so much.

It's no fad and has a strong base of players to keep it going with a huge possibility of going mainstream as more players come in from other sources.

Every year brings more additions to the game and i think that it's going to get even more interesting over time.

HIVE is definitely a long term game. It takes time to get out there but you definitely need to be consistent if you want to succeed.

IT takes time but with it being a small circle you can get your name out there fairly fast with a little effort.

Definitely worth it as everybody that has been here long enough has reaped the benefits. The same will happen for the people starting now that are willing to keep going for the next few years.
