Rising Star New Pack Opening & Card Giveaway - Win Buster or Jerome (Ends June 24, 2022)

A few weeks ago I had a Rising Star contest and put up an Take RS card as the prize. Stay tuned below for the results and a new giveaway!

Since my last giveaway, there have been several changes proposed for the Rising Star game. The most impactful being a change in the requirements for the STARBITS Millionaire mission. This mission pays out 10,000 STARBITS and can be run once per day. The requirements are that you hold the STARBITS Millionaire Card and attain level 50. The STARBITS Millionaire Card requires that you hold one million STARBITS either in your Rising Star account or on Hive Engine. At present, one million STARBITS is worth about $90 USD.

Given the current mechanics of the Millionaire mission, it takes 100 days of running it in order to earn back the one million STARBITS cost. In doing so, you are forgoing other missions that return XP for that 65% health that is required. Beginning toward the end of June, a new requirement is being added that you must maintain a certain level of fans in order to run the mission. This number of fans will increase by 100 each time the mission is run. This means that in order to keep running the mission, you'll need to spend the 10,000 STARBITS on buying new cards or packs.

There is a great analysis of the changes available from @libertycrypto27 that I encourage you to read: @libertycrypto27/important-changes-to-the-starbits-millionaire-mission-calculations-and-considerations-engita

New Pack Opening

Because of the planned changes to the Millionaire Mission, I am going to increase my pack openings in order to boost my fanbase. I fall quite short of the required number of fans and will need to get caught up if I want to keep running the mission.

Pack 1:

Pack 3:

Let's take a look at the cards I received:

i80 Triangle: 5 Luck

87 Donna: 10 Fans, 0 Skill, 0 Luck

R205 Andy: 100 Fans, 75 Skill, 4 Luck

85 Kelly: 10 Fans, 0 Skill, 0 Luck

i81 Busker RIO: 5 Luck

R196 Star Visionary: 50 Luck

i68 Kalimba: 10 Luck

i80 Triangle: 5 Luck

R183 Gustaf: 100 Fans, 100 Skill, 4 Luck

Considering that my new goal is to increase my number of fans, these packs were not very helpful on that front. Out of the six cards, I only gained 210 fans. That's less than 100 fans per pack which is the minimum needed to keep the Millionaire Mission going. It appears that purchasing cards on the market may be the only cost-effective way of maintaining mission eligibility.

My current RisingStar stats are as follows:

6154 Fans
1237 Luck
9431 Skill
158 Cards

Level 62

My next goal is getting to level 65 so I can unlock the Band Auditions mission and complete the Local Gig Circuit zone. One of these days I will need to run a profitability calculation on my average daily STARBITS generated compared to what I'm going to have to start putting back into card purchases for the Millionaire Mission.

I've dug into my card holdings and will be giving two discontinued cards away - Buster and Jerome.
