I enjoy playing the Splinterlands game on a daily basis and am keeping track of my personal results and earnings during the entire year bringing a report each month. I'm hoping to show a realistic picture of what's possible in terms of earning, how things change as the year goes by and hopefully attract some new players to the game.

Thanks again for the massive response to my January Report on Publish0x and to the many that ended up trying out the game.

February 2020 Season Results

I continue to play 2 accounts (Level 5 & Level 3) and completed all the daily quests as one of the first things I do each morning. February was the month where the Reward Structure changed. Previously only rewards cards were given out, while now there is a 33% chance on getting reward cards, 33% potion, 33% DEC, 1% Essense Orb. Most of my focus was on reinvesting almost everything I earned to buy more cards off the market in order to be able to lease them out to everyone that is signing up with my affiliate link so they get a head start when starting out.

February 1st Collection Value

At the start of February my total card collection value came at 505.65$ (363.79$ Main account | 141.86$ Alt Account) I managed to reach the Diamond 2 league on both accounts at the end of last season. (Rank 3266 & Rank 3114)

February Reward Cards

The month of February only had 29 days and only 1 set of Season rewards I managed to earn a whopping 589 Reward Cards in the month of January. If anything, Steemmonsters has been giving out way too many rewards to its players and they actually changed how reward cards are given out also requiring more to level up on the new cards that will be released from now on. It will be interesting to see how this will change the overall card earnings next month.

This month saw a huge drop in reward card earnings (~110$ -> 23.73$) because fewer reward cards are given out (228 vs 589) and I wasn't as lucky to draw a golden Legendary this time around. Since only 33% of rewards were given out as cards so a lot is made up of the other rewards that were given out...

February DEC Earnings

Aside from the regular DEC earnings coming from winning ranked matches, extra DEC was earned by the daily quest and season rewards.

Combined, I earned nearly 40k of DEC during the month of February which comes down to 21.4$ at current DEC Price.

DEC Investments - Buying Cards

I basically used all the earned DEC (Aside from ~3500 I put in savings) to buy up mostly single cards off the market I believe are potentially undervalued and useful for new players as a way to potentially get some more affiliates. (see my sign-up deal below). Some cards were also bought to enforce my own playing cards to get higher rankings in future seasons.

I spend a total of ~34249DEC on cards last month. The values I count them at are the lowest market offered BCX value while in reality, I could sell them for way more as most of them are single cards. The total current value is 18.433$

Potion Earnings

The potions give a higher chance of Gold or Legendary cads when opening chests and honestly feel kind of worthless since everyone is getting them. This is how many I earned...

Essence Orb Earnings

With the new rewards structure, each reward chest gives a 1% chance on an Essence Orb which gives a pack with 5 Promo Cards. I managed to get my hands on 6 Essence Orbs giving these cards with a value of 3.774$

February Affiliate Earnings

February was quite hectic in terms of new affiliates with 60+ people signing up to try out the game trough my affiliate link who all got some SP leased to them to be able to play the game along with a bunch of cards to give them a head start. I plan on making a more detailed report on affiliates and retention rates later this month. Accounts not having any SP to test the game out for free instantly caused half of the ones that signed up to basically give up instantly. I clearly state now in my sign-up deal that I will lease the needed SP to play withing 24 hours to everyone that uses my link

A total of 8224 games were played by new accounts thas signed up with my link. 17 Ended getting the Starter Set in order to be able to get rewards. The average rank of those reached was 1720 with the highest reaching 2785 in the first month of playing. Also, with the cards I leased out along with just the starter set, multiple were able to reach Silver 1 League (1600+) which is quite impressive.

Affiliate Investments - Buying Cards

I used most of the Affiliate earnings to buy cards that are both useful for my personal account and some more to lease out. I tend to scout the market waiting for players to dump cards to pick them up at favorable prices which worked out quite good.

I made 2 Splinterlands posts last month which both got curated (Thanks @monster-curator & @clove71). Pretty much everyone that puts effort into their making Splinterlands posts has a really fair chance to get curated and I would highly recommend getting involved in the community to all new players who are looking to build their collection climbing up in the rankings as these earnings can be used to buy more cards or packs speeding up the process.


All values are based on current values in case I would sell everything I right now have from last month's earnings in terms of STEEM / Cards at market Prices / DEC / ...

Total Card Collection Value Progression


If you want to try out the game for free to see if it's something you enjoy, that is possible. Everyone that signs up with my affiliate link will be leased 10SP which allows you to start playing within 24 hours after making an account. I will also lease outs some cards which will give an early game advantage to everyone that plays at least 5 ranked games with extra card leased to those that end up getting a starter set which unlocks the earnings of rewards and even more to those that also get at least 1 untamed card pack and up.

  • Make Account = 10 SP Lease within 24H after signing up which allows you to do transactions on the Steem Blockchain and test out the game for free. Make sure to use my Link as this is what I look at to give out delegations.
  • 5 Ranked Games & 1 Win = 4 Card Leases
  • Getting 10$ Starter Set = 16 Extra Cards Leased
  • Get at least 1 Untamed Pack = 8 More Card Leases
  • Get 10+ Untamed Pack = 3 Strong Card Leases extra
This deal is first come, first served. I might replace some of the cards by others in case I run ou. I will do everything in my power to make sure everyone that uses my affiliate link gets a nice head start in the game!. Leases will stay on for as long as you play and they are useful or until I need them myself. I am keeping an eye daily on my affiliates and leases will be done manually within 24 hours. Feel free to contact me on the SBC Discord Channel (username is costanza#2335) if you have questions or want to speed up the lease process. Each month this Deal will be Adjusted based on the cards I have available.
