⚡️ AMA Summary ⚡️

  • All airdrops were determined to be Legendaries
  • Next two are already designed and can be seen in Eye Candy
  • Then there will be the six Legendary designed summoners
  • Legendaries are the hardest rarity to get so it is more of a reward for those who buy packs and receive these airdrops
  • Team has been working on land economics and design decisions, but can’t leak any just yet
  • Totems will be able to mined/harvested from land
  • Overall totems will be scarce and limited
  • Next use-case will be for Riftwatchers
  • Other use-cases would be for promotions that the team is in the works of spinning up
  • “We want to see vouchers be integrated into everything we put out there” — Aggroed
  • Tournaments will probably see a big revamp in the future
  • WeirdBeard is going to enhance these in a huge way!
  • If you want to leave feedback for how Tournaments are created and planned, throw it in the #tournament-planning Discord channel
  • NFT’s are receiving harsh criticism from the general population
  • Splinterlands is targetting the percent of people who are open-minded and understanding the advtanges of NFT’s and NFT gaming
  • Splinterlands is going to be building upon their brand recognition to help go mainstream
  • Not a huge priority, but everyone wants to see something happen with skins
  • Needs to be a balance between fan art, animations, analyzing the battle field, etc..
