💥 Company Updates 💥

Chaos Legion:

  • Pre-sale is currently at almost 600k packs sold
  • There is not a private sale for Chaos Legion
    • Rather, it is a volume discount for those looking to buy very large amounts
    • These purchases will still need vouchers if they want the bonus packs
    • These purchases also don't have an advantage of buying before anyone else
      • Will need to manually make the purchase once general sale is live within the Shop
    • Basically, they will be worked with one-on-one to make sure their purchase goes successfully

  • Packs can be opened officially on December 8th
    • All Chaos Legion cards can be used in ranked and tournaments
  • Team does not think Chaos Legion general sale will sell out in 24 hours
  • The first few airdrops for the general sale may be adjusted to include anyone who buys within the first 24 hours
    • This is to allow everyone the opportunity to get in on these airdrops
    • Official news on this topic will be posted in the near-future

Dev Updates:

  • Chaos Legion is still highest priority (launches December 8th)
    • Team is still implementing the stats of cards
  • Devs are committed to making the Chaos Legion launch as smooth as possible
    • Trying to anticipate the huge strain on servers and scaling to meet the demand
    • Servers have been in a very stable state for the past couple weeks
  • Devs are also actively working on the enhancing the market
    • Problem: Market items showing as available but actually sold
    • Partial Fix last week: warning of problem in real time
    • New Fix: New update will drive down chances that you are buying something that somebody else has already purchased
  • First version of SPS Governance
    • Will work similar to delegated PoS like on Hive, EOS, WAX, BSC
    • SPS token holders will be able to vote on Validators
    • Validators will run open-sourced software developed by Splinterlands
    • Splinterlands wallets will be transitioned to multisig wallets
      • Validators will be the signatories on these multisig wallets
    • Main change will be in regards to handling treasury funds
      • SPS token holders can submit proposals and vote on them
      • Validators will sign transaction for the proposal
      • Completely autonomous system and gives SPS community full control
    • Goal is to have this implemented by early next year

Support Updates:

  • Tickets are decreasing overall, even though community and game is growing
    • August/September had about 10k tickets per month
    • October had only around 7k tickets
  • Week over week, there were over 3 million new sessions on the Splinterlands site
    • 7.8M unique users -> 10.7M unique users (last week)
    • On track to being more than 10.7M unique users this week

Creative Updates:

  • Team is under pressure with Chaos Legion, but super excited for the launch
  • Chaos Legion is top priority, but other things like land are being worked on in parallel
  • Posted last story of the Tome of Chaos
    • These stories have some sneak peaks into Chaos Legion monsters!

Community Moderation Updates:

  • Welcome HomesteadHacker to the team!
    • Main goal is to provide a safe and secure community for everyone
    • See the updated post on our official Docs site!
  • Once organized, community moderation has some awesome plans:
    • Mini AMA's in Discord
    • Twitter AMA's/Sessions
    • Cooperate with Marketing & Support

Sales & Marketing Updates:

  • Team is working on giant deals with guilds/communities
    • Goal is to try to get as many people into the game as possible
  • Working on a lot of big partnerships as well
    • Stay tuned for the announcements

General Team Updates:

  • Continue to onboard new devs to take issues off of YabapMatt's plate
    • Matt wants to focus more on design and new feature development
    • Just added a couple more developers just last week
  • Reminder, all team members are players in the game as well
    • So when features are created, they are created from a player perspective first
  • Don't miss Dygycon this weekend!
  • Player Feedback
    • Feedback being taken at https://feedback.splinterlands.com/
    • Incorporates player feedback into the game
    • Community can vote on which feedback they like the most
    • Eventually will become a proposal for SPS holders to vote on
  • Team is working on bringing in game updates within the game itself
    • That way all players are exposed, and don't need to be on Discord or Telegram

⚡️ AMA Summary ⚡️

👀 = See Eye Candy!

Chaos Legion 👀:

  • Yabapmatt thinks general sale will last months, Aggroed thinks first week
    • Team is not going to change how the sale is going to go
  • Starter deck will change when the Chaos Legion is launched
    • Will be Untamed, Chaos Legion, Dice, and Untamed/CL Reward Cards
  • Aggroed will put out a post soon about the volume discounts they've been discussing

SPS:

  • SPS utility is coming
    • Not top priority but still on the team's roadmap
  • Those who stake SPS will continue seeing greater earnings

DEC:

  • If DEC decreases in price, DEC rewards will decrease as well
    • That is why there will be SPS rewards though as well in the future
  • Spending credits in game gives DEC more value
  • Team is constantly buying DEC every day in order to allow players to buy from the market with credits
    • Sellers receive DEC from sold cards, or rentals, even if bought with credits

In-Game Market:

  • Team is hoping to implement the in-game market for land, titles, totems, vouchers, etc...
  • Goal would be by end of 2021, but not guaranteed

Land:

  • Probably will leak into Q2 of 2022
  • After Chaos Legion, land will take the next top priority
  • Team will provide sneak peaks through Q1 of 2022

Vouchers:

  • The vouchers given out during the presale and post-presale are the same token
  • Next voucher airdrop will continue on December 8th
    • Will be 66,666.66 vouchers dropped a day for 30 days
    • After the 30 days, voucher drop will be 20k/day indefinitely

Modern/Wild Ranked Formats:

  • Won't be released until January 2022 most likely
  • Collection power will probably align with the two different formats
    • Example: Alpha card's power won't count towards Modern CP

Player Feedback/Suggestions:

  • Any feedback or suggestions should be submitted to https://feedback.splinterlands.com/
  • So if you really want to see a change made, post your suggestion and get people to vote it!

Mobile App:

  • Team would love to enhance the current mobile app
    • Want to make it as effective as a desktop browser
  • Probably won't happen for another 3-6 months

Job Opportunities:
