Prior to this update, there have already been a series of implementations. With the last of them coming on the 28th of June 2022. Following their launch, the team observed the attitude of users towards the changes. However, the reception from the community has been receptive. The reports show that the alterations are ensuring a more stable reward system.
The Splinterlands New Ranked Rewards System
The Splinterlands dev team will be implementing parts of the new ranked rewards system in the coming days. On the 18th of July, there will be a release of the first updates. This will come after the upgrade of the Modern & Wild battle format on the 11th of July.
Below are some modifications to expect:
- Implementation of new daily focuses that focuses on the use of cards with certain abilities. The team intends to add between 10 and 15 types of these. More so, these new additions will function alongside element-based focuses. However, these boosts will not apply to lower leagues.
- Splinterlands is also changing the daily focus mechanism. Following this update, players will earn points to their daily chest. This will apply, even when they do not use any focus cards. Although using specific cards will increase your benefits. Furthermore, there will also be an increase in the number of reward shares needed for earning daily and seasonal focus chests. This is to compensate for the increment in compensation.
- There will be an increase in the minimum time you can rent out a card from 1 day to 2 days. This implies that cancelling rent on the first day will not take effect till the next day. The aim of this adjustment is to reduce the act of exploitation by some players. They rent out their cards on a single day and burn down the ECR on that account.
- By the 18th of July, SPS will replace the use of DEC as the year-long airdrop coming to an end. The team hopes to implement SPS as the reward for ranked battles. Also, the plan is to lower the flow of DEC into the markets. As will reduce the rate at which players will be selling off this token. This move will help to stabilize the price of the token.
