Gold Foil Upgrade Progress - Painfully slow but still chugging along. 5 New cards maxed to my level.

in splinterlands •  2 months ago 

That is just an image of my playable cards. I have many more that are delegated out. Hard choice to delegate out 3 or 4 level 5 cards. Or have one level 8 card...... not sure what is better.


The Upgrade Project

I decided at the start of the year, I wanted to upgrade all my decks to Gold Foil reward cards. My primary deck is running a Gold League level, level 6 summoners. I continue to spend most of my DEC earned on GF upgrades, and sending my old cards off to the rental market to see if I can earn that .001 / per day per card.

First Post

No changes in my Epic or Legendary status - this post will continue to focus on the Common and Rare cards I can use most often. Below is on my on going list.

As you can see, I have made decent progress in getting some of these to the max level that, and use them daily. So far I have.

  • Exploding Dwarf
  • Ettin Spearman
  • Sea Monster
  • Octospider
  • Creeping Ooze
  • Goblin Mech
  • Gremlin Blaster
  • Furious Chicken (Doubt I will upgrade, although the new game type is making me consider the upgrade for the enrage benefit)
  • Baby Unicorn - missed last post
  • Silvershield Archers - missed last post
  • Wood Nymph - missed last post
  • Beetle Queen *New
  • Sea Genie *New
  • Albatross *New
  • Vampire * New
  • Gelatinous Cube *New

While it may not look like a of progress. I actually decided to try to upgrade my 3-4 rental decks to gold at first. So I have many of the new reward and untamed cards at level 5, or multiple level 5 versions delegated to rental decks. Now that my rental service is gone, I am not sure what I will do.

I hope a new rental service steps up or takes on new customers after my cool down, it will be depressing to manually be splitting this stuff, but then again, I guess maybe it will be better for me in the long run.

I am still buying packs, hoping to hit that GFL luck, but so far I haven't had much. I know its a numbers game and I am just not buying enough packs to actually have a chance to hit many.

I will be taking another look at my cards and seeing what cards I will focus on upgrading next, and what I have extras of. Once I get it all updated, I will hit discord and looks for some trades to swap GF and get a win/win out of it.

If you get a Gold Foil card and want to sell it for above DEC burn value, hit me up on Discord, I am always in the market and trying to upgrade as I can. I am also looking for Untamed cards, they will help fill out the Silver decks!

Sounds like nerdery to me 😂

Full on brother... can't hide it!

That's a lot of GF. Congratulations on that little collection. Any idea on how long you think it will take you (at current rates)?

Never, honestly. I have my primary deck at level 6. .... then 5 other account in silver leagues. I will never get them all GF before we run out of this card set and we start another. Not to mention 2 of my rental decks are sitting idle, no longer getting played and earning me DEC to upgrade. Its a ton of cards!
