Details of the Splinterlands Battle Ruleset Update
The major highlight in the Splinterlands Battle Ruleset is that players can now activate up to 3 rulesets simultaneously. This applies to the Gold League, Higher Ranked Battles, Tournaments and Guild Brawl Battles. This is a major upgrade from the previous use of 2 rulesets.
Besides changing the number of combinations, the team will also modify how players can choose them. Henceforth, rulesets will not be divided into the primary and secondary categories. Instead, users can combine them as they want, except for specific exclusion or incompatible power-ups. This update opens opportunities for players to combine in-game boosters that were not there before. Splinterlands intends to make gameplay more immersive and fun-filled by providing users with more combinations.
The team also hints on possible changes occurring in the future. Therefore, they are advising players to adapt their tactics to these modifications. Besides the in-game benefits, this update will ensure that every card in Spliterlands is useful and has value. This is what TCGs should entail – a competitive game with a wide selection of cards.
Below is a breakdown of how the changes will take effect:
- Bronze: 75% of 1 ruleset and 25% of a “Standard” ruleset.
- Silver: 75% of 2 rulesets, 20% chance of 1 ruleset and 5% chance of a “Standard” ruleset.
- Gold, Tournament and Brawl Battles: 75% of 3 rulesets, 15% of 2 rulesets, 8% of 1 ruleset and 2% of a “Standard” ruleset.
Updated Compatibility Lists for Cards
While the Splinterlands Battle Ruleset Update enables you combine as many cards as possible, not all power-ups can work together.

- Equal Opportunity – Aimless, Melee Mayhem, Super Sneak and Target Practice.
