More Rising Star milestones and some Splinterlands brawls

in Rising Star Game2 months ago (edited)

First of all, some people may have noticed a lack of running posts from me lately. I am not exactly injured, but my upper leg muscles have just not been feeling right lately. I could still run, but it did not feel right. It was not painful as such, but I want to give my legs a bit of a rest and see if they recover.

Meanwhile I keep playing a couple of games on Hive.

Rising Star

Rising Star is still evolving. A major new feature is music promoter. This allows you to bid to 'promote' a mission. From that you can earn a new token called STARPRO. The main use for that seems to be the ability to buy a new card that lets you finish short missions straight away. I had a play with promotion, but only won a tiny amount of STARPRO. Others are really into it. You have to spend your Starbits and I prefer to use them for other things.

One thing I have been spending on is crafting. This allows you to mint cards by collecting parts. You can see below all the cards I have crafted, as seen in NFTMart. I have been concentrating on production as they help in the lessons I do to increase skill.

Crafted

Thanks to all those extra cards I am managing to maintain my position in the game rankings. I have a lot less total cards than others up there. This means I get a bonus extra HIVE or so each day, but it is just another fun aspect of the game.

Ranking

Having over 200 unique cards puts me third by that measure, well behind the top two. I will keep running a few crafting missions each day. I hope to get more gold parts to make more valuable cards, but they are pretty rare.

Another milestone is having over 200,000 fans from my cards. That means I earn a good amount on each mission. Apart from crafting that gets ploughed back into buying more packs. Some days I will use some of the Hive Engine tokens I earn to buy enough Starbits to buy packs, whilst retaining the million I need in order to run the millionaire mission.

More new features are due. There is an ominously empty 'Records' tab on the cards page and @risingstargame is not telling us anything about it. He likes to tease us. To get news on the game you should tune into his weekly Youtube show where you can win cards and hear lots of music from the community. After all, the game is about music and lots of musicians are playing it.

There is a musician called Billy Korg, who I am not sure has a Hive account, who was the latest to get his own legendary card. So far nobody has had that card in a pack. @foxon is so desperate to have it that he is offering a load of legendary cards in exchange for it.

Billy Korg

I am getting several batches of packs each week, but legendaries are hard to find. There will only be fifty in total of this card. I have found a few legendaries and have bought others. The asking prices for some seem crazy when people ask for HIVE as the price is so high now. I am not that desperate for them.

Splinterlands

I am also still playing Splinterlands. I recently got enough cards to play the Diamond III league again. I could get well past that before the power limits came in.

I am part of the Splinter Elites guild and have participated in the new 'brawls'. I think this is somewhat like tournaments, but I have not done those yet. In brawls you compete against other guilds. There is a set of battles each time and you choose one of the appriate level for you.

Brawl

At the given time you get a list of opponents to battle and select your cards. The battles happen when both players are ready. In my first one I won a few, but in the next it was restricted to Untamed cards, which I do not have many of. I lost all my bouts that time. I guess this is another incentive to buy the new packs. I have just been spending DEC on upgrading the cards I have, but I may be missing out on some cards.You just have to pick a strategy that works for you.

Hive has got me back into playing some games, but I am trying to avoid them taking over my life. I need to get back to running soon as well as making music.

Hive five!

Impressive supply of crafted instruments!

I'm offering all the legendary cards I get opening packs until the first L14 Billy Korg is found in a pack... for some reason, I'm really good at getting L7 John 😃 Only @nupulse (Billy Korg) can make me happy right now. I should really write that dear John letter

Current prize for giving me the first L14 Billy Korg found in a pack:
1 x L1 Trenton Lundy
2 x L2 Raven
2 x L3 Limo
3 x L7 John
1 x L11 Private Yacht
1 x L12 Gribbles

================

I hope the legs get to feeling normal with rest! Until then, I'll enjoy having you around Hive more

@foxon You are selling me? But I have been so good to you 🤣😂

Awww, sugar dumpling... I'm not selling you. It's a giveaway 😃

😂🤣😅😅

I was about to say @nupulse is Billy Korg. And a talented musician he is. Challenge accepted. If I get a Billy we can talk.

Great post @steevc. I agree 100% with you. Id rather use my starbits than waste it on music Promoter. Maybe not right now. But I hope to compete with you big guys one day. I got a long way to go though! But right now it's just wishful thinking!

The community around the game is great and @risingstargame (aka jux) does an amazing job.

I was fairly early to the game and so have done well from it. Spending a little on it does help, but have to keep it fun.

!ENGAGE 20

Lol I feel like I spend way too much time. But I'm only 4 months in. I will get there! Thanks for the motivation!

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

ALL of those cards for a Billy (complete with his COVID hair-do)?.

Yep!

Blimey, that is generous.

I wasn't sure if @nupulse was Billy. I'd be happy enough to swap if I get him. It's been a while since the card was issued and I'm surprised he hasn't popped up yet.

I haven't tried the promotion yet. I didn't understand the video the first time and will need to watch it again if I'm to have a go.

I gave up on the crafting. I hope at some point the market page changes so it's easier to see which ones are for sale. Scrolling through them all takes too long.

Still trying to get a bunny guitar. 26 missions and no luck so far. 😂

Splinterlands investment seems to be doing very nicely. 😁

I hope your legs return to normal soon!

I may come back to promotion some time. It is not essential to the game.

I have spare Easter guitars. Do you want to make me an offer on one?

I'm really not sure what is up with my legs. Maybe it just down to getting old :)

I think I'll keep going with the missions. Thanks. Surely one must be coming my way soon!

If not I'll get back to you . . .

. Maybe it just down to getting old

I hope not! 😊

P.S. Do you have any idea why I don't get a slider when I upvoted on Hive? Is there a setting somewhere?

There may be a lower limit on HP for getting the slider. I have no idea where that is now. You may get one in peakd. Did you convert your HIVE to other tokens?

!BEER

You may get one in peakd.

Yeah I wondered abut that although maybe it doesn't matter since I don't curate from hive.blog much.

Did you convert your HIVE to other tokens?

Yep. I bought BTC shortly after the airdrop since I'm wasn't really active and I didn't like the way the whole thing was handled.

LeoFinance tempted me back to curate and read a bit and I've kept in touch via Splinterlands and, more recently, Rising Stars.

Thanks for the beer. 😊

I don't understand the whole pro thing. I haven't gotten any of the tokens at all. I am just about to the point where I can buy some more packs. It seems like it is taking me longer and longer to get to that point. I need to start crafting some more stuff too. I'd like to snag some more fans so I can earn quicker.

Building fans helps, but the good cards for that are expensive. You have to find the strategy that works for you.

I likely won't be buying any cards. If I can't get them in packs I will just do without them.

206.., I am slacking. Crafting some Prod items would help. I have none.

It could be worth spending the odd hour on. We have been promised some use for all the spare parts we generate. Time will tell...

We have been promised some use for all the spare parts we generate.

We have?.. I must have missed that.

Jux mentioned it when the guitar crafting started and we were getting loads of silver strings. Not sure if it was in a post or the Sunday show. The odds are not the same for all the basic parts.

I see you are catching up in the rankings. Keep at it.

I've been watching all of you who are ahead of me very closely! I'm learning from the best!!😎
