BDCommunity Presents:- Splinterlands Quidditch [Year 1]

in #hive-1902123 months ago (edited)

Hello Dark Mazes, Wood Nymphs, and Grey Wizards Of Splinterlands. From a land far far away, We bring you news of a 'Bout' so tricky that even the mightiest untamed summoners fear to call upon their legendary heroes once they are in the arena. It's a contest unlike any other ever seen before. Because, once you enter, there is no going back.

We will test your agility, endurance, your skills, and your writing abilities all at once. To get your hands on the prizes, at the very last stage, you have to impress our Night Elder, @azircon Dada.

No leveled up Gold Mimosa, or Yodin Zaku will save you when you come face to face with our mighty Night Elder. So, start honing your Splinterlands skills right away, as it is the only thing that will save you from his wrath. :V

On a more serious note, we are very excited to announce our second writing contest with a twist. This is a contest solely for the folks of splinterlands. The participants have to write about particular topics only about the game that will be preselected by us.

So, Without any farther adieu, We present to you, Splinterland Quidditch- Year One's Topic.

Topic: How Do You Win On a 12 Mana Battle Using Any Splinter Of Your Choice?

If you are still not clear about the concept of the contest, just carefully read the following explanation written bellow.

In-Depth Trivia:

For example, lets imagine a scenario where you are trying to complete your quest for the day, and at the very end, its a 12 Mana limit game. Now, You have to write about that.

You can use any splinter, any type of card, and any set of battle rules to explain it.

Another thing you have to remember is that when you write the entry, you have to thoroughly describe why your strategy is the best-suited one and against which line-up and ruleset, it might fail.

You can add in-game imagery or footage played by yourself too to explain it.

Lets say, you can use Kron The Undying from Earth Splinter in such a battle, and you will have a high success rate at winning. Here is a post link as an example.

But, in the posts first comment, our dev @reazuliqbal explained how this lineup too can be beaten by a monster with stun ability as a tank. In your entry, you have to explain it like that, the pros and cons of your strategy, as shown above.

Do not use this exact lineup as your entry tho. It will cause an automatic disqualification.

Nice contest from the team, time to pick up my pen to write something amazing.

A cool initiative... I love it and hope that this contest is more of permanent thing.

Nice Initiative Indeed.

Nice Contest BD

Interesting one and should test the skills of us battlers.

Looking forward to participating in it :)

Yaay... Time to smash my newly sl journey with this contest. Yikes.

I've been wanting to learn how to play on splinterland. I think it's high time I took it more seriously.

I did get 12 mana battles but lost both, lol. In my opinion, the death splinter would be better for low mana

Nice contest! I need to get in on more bdc events. It's not exclusive is it?

I was that unlucky guy mentioned in @azircon's blog link shared :) and yes, as @reazuliqbal mentioned, couple of stuns could have changed the battle outcome had I had a level 7 or 8 Stone Golem instead of level 5 one ;)

Anyways, here is my link with a battle for this contest along with link to Twitter share.

Good luck to all :)

Here's my ticket, I hope you like it and it's on time. Thank you very much for the contest.


With a little effort, I made my post but I have noticed that the contest expired and it was not taken into account could someone please tell me what I did wrong ... if I am in disqualification or something similar?
