I remain in the accumulation phase as the growth of the player base encourages me to invest into the game. In fact, since my last thought process, I have been able to continue to accumulate Dark Energy Crystals (DEC) as the prices fell to ensure a good cushion of resources for some of the future developments like land sales. I have also pulled the trigger to have some participation in the coveted equity of the business behind it. Despite the volatility among some of the older and larger players, I continue to enjoy the development and the metrics the way they are headed.
I was surprised that the latest leg of 100k packs of Untamed were sold so quickly given the issues of card prices we had recently seen. It probably took me a couple of days to realize that the Air Drop had occurred so I was excited to see my results based on my almost 2,800 packs that were eligible. It somewhat makes sense that the packs have been sold quickly as the DEC prices have given them a substantial discount to the face value of the packs currently sold.
Despite some prior luck, I was unable to get enough air dropped to max out the card for my Collection. However, I was lucky enough to get a Gold Foil which I think balances out the results of the Air Drop. This means I will have to go to the marketplaces available and try to buy some additional copies to max out my card. It will be tough as I only have DEC to use for buying cards which I have been holding for the long term. I may look to makes some trades but I have been less successful trading as it is tough to get aligned with other players and despite me offering packs for trade, I rarely get any interest for them. I have been trying to get a Mighty Dricken for months now in exchange for Untamed Packs but no takers yet.
I am now getting really excited for the next Air Drop as it has the potential to be my own card. As part of the Untamed Kickstarter, I got into one of the high tiers so I could design a Legendary Summoner. What is exciting is that my daughter designed it so no spoilers but it will be different than what we have seen. I am so grateful to the development team as they took the idea and accepted it although I imagine they will need to give an appropriate spin for it to fit in the Splinterlands universe. Looking forward to seeing how it all develops!
