I tried making a start with it, but by now the starting price of getting some Axies to breed was when I checked it out recently $191 for the cheapest one, and you need three of them to atleast start with it.
$600 as a starting line is just a little to much for giving it a try. Ofcourse it is paying of now, but you dont know if that will be the case in the next month.
I like the $10 starter pack price in Splinterlands. It is not too much, but still enough to keep the bots out. Way more user friendly!
