This post is geared for people that understand the game #splinterlands.
Splinterlands is destorying the values of NFT gaming. They are promoting ideas that are crtically detrimental to the future of blockchin (real money) gaming.
As a player, you know that cards were sold in 'packs' for $2 each. These packs each contained cards that were clearly sold under the condition that they were limited NFT assets to be used in the game to win real money rewards.
That's not what happened. Splinterlands decided to add something called 'ghost cards' These ghost cards are EXTRA copies of existing NFT assets, that were once sold as LIMITED. They are now theoretically UNLIMITED (limited by the number of accounts created).
There are a number of cards, including some from the most recent set, Untamed, that are given away for free, to every single account (300k+) that exists.
These are server-based (non blockchain) COPIES of cards that were sold as LIMITED NFT assets.
Yes, the game itself gives away COUNTERFEITS to be used IN-GAME so players could earn the 'real money' rewards. NON BLOCKCHAIN assets in the 'blockchain game'...
This DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF THE WHOLE GAME! Some people INVESTED in these 'game' NFT cards, thinking they were limited! They are not! They are FREELY DUPLICATED for everyone to have...
By everyone, I mean mostly BOTTERS. Botters have scaled up and they are growing large. They are using the 'ghost cards' to earn the daily reward. Splinterlands did this. They gave them YOUR cards (extra 'copies') so that these bots can easily WIN enough to collect the rewards.
I don't throw around 'FRAUD' lightly. Think about it, you THINK you're playing a blockchain game. But the BLOCKCHAIN assets they sold you are being DUPLICATED fraudently on the server in order to win the rewards.
Remember. You were sold limited NFTS useable in game. The game decided to trash your NFTs and install their own private version so botters could better compete with you for the rewards! That's the whole reason you BOUGHT these NFT, is to earn the rewards! Welp, now the botters are getitng so much of the rewards, thanks to their FRAUD server-cards.
I WELCOME anyone to COMMENT and debate in defense of the splinterlands! The game defrauded players / investors.
