My Rental adventure 2023 - 29 weeks later, as I am waiting for Land 1.5
Splinterlands latest news are:
The Modern format is now bot-free, and it seems to be a huge success. If they decide to take the bots out of the tournaments, this will be awesome for the game, and already we have a proposal for this one, quite promising, I think, as lately was slowly becoming a bot farm game, and all the joy was being sucked out of the game play.
You can now buy Riftwatchers with DEC. 5000 for 1 pack. I was a proposal almost ready to offer RW packs for 100 SPS, as a way to get some more SPS out of our hands, but this may only help major SPS holders and whales, I think, and not so much the common player, while the packs are quickly sold and out of our hands.
Soulkeep and Genesis League Goals are in the final stages, and you can play them soon, as average player. Genesis League is Open Beta today, 04/08/2023.
Check the new updated roadmap, we are getting there, with some work to be done on the land feature soon, but there is some worrying feeling, as quite few old-time players stopped being active in the game, with the profit going down. We need new players, and some easy way to onboard them. This is the improvement that I would like to see.
Staking SPS replaced the collection power, and this is big for the SPS utility, as until now we had only some feeble attempts to use it properly, at least this is what I think. I need 128K SPS to play on Diamond II efficiently, and right now I only have 102K, I will focus on getting there next few months. You can still play on higher ranks, it is just that your rewards will decrease if you do not have the right amount of SPS staked for that rank. I think the best you can get is x12 times the rewards if you have enough SPS staked, with smaller amounts if you do not have enough of it. You got a base rewards, you got the boost up to 12 times, and you got a guild boost also, mine is 7% now. And the best of it, you can rent your staked SPS. If you want to do some advanced math, the formula for the SPS multiplier is = max ((staked_sps / (staked_sps + rating_constant)) * 13.3, 1) when rating_constant is = ((rating -100) * 0.007) ^3.5 . Where are you? Do the math!
As for my Splinterlands plans I am getting in and out Diamond I, but My Chaos Legion core cards are all max level now, and the leveling of the Riftwatchers cards is on with few more cards upgraded. I may focus on upgrading some of my summoners next, now that they are cheaper then before, as we were informed that they will not be used for land.

As I have started this few seasons ago (beginning of November 2022), these are my stats:
Chaos Legion packs unopened: 435 (+1)
Riftwatchers packs bought: 163 (0)
Riftwatchers packs unopened: 0 (0)
Cards upgraded and rented:
Not much was done, I have only upgraded 2 Riftwatchers cards, the Arachne Thug to level 7:
...and the Runeslinger to level 4.
Bought some Time Meddler cards too, 3 more BCX missing to reach level 5.
The time is near. I am now upgrading key cards, looking at some summoners that are quite cheap, and continue upgrading the Riftwatchers. The strategy was to use the DEC from rentals to upgrade fully the Riftwatchers set, but the renting profit plummeted lately. ( I have left to upgrade 10 common, 12 rare, 6 epics and 7 legendary cards). I want to buy some max level Gold and legendary cards, if possible, to get 5 lands fully prepared (1 Keep and 1 Castle, and the 3 occupied ones). In the same time I need to get some more RW packs, already started to buy them, one by one, 8 this week, now that CL ended, and use the GLX and SPS rewarded from now on to upgrade some more cards. Vouchers still go on Tribaldex for more SPS farming (Voucher - Hive pair). Whenever I get more than 5 CL packs, I sell them for Hive, same with the land, 5 common lands per week/month, until I sell the remaining 90 left to sell. I will adjust the strategy as I go.
All the best,
