At long last, free2play accounts are a reality.
@tcpolymath has done a yeoman's work and created the @herons-unlimited bot that will automatically (ottermatically?) manage delegated account payments. This will allow the creation of more and more f2p as time isn't spent in account management.
Check out the introductory post here: https://steempeak.com/splinterlands/@herons-unlimited/herons-unlimited-basics
If you are interested as a player or as an owner, come to the discord here: https://discord.gg/hXpQsHC
Now it is possible to come in as a new player and start hitting high levels of competition without having to invest hundreds or thousands of dollars first.
Like I've been saying all along, the goal here is to democratize SplinterLands. The more people we can bring in to the game, the better off we all will be in every way. Competitions will be better. Deck values will rise. People trying to game the leaderboard will be unable to forfeit against themselves. DEC sinks will go through the roof. And more players = more fun!
If you are a large account owner, I invite you to consider creating your own f2p accounts to help bring in more players.
For these 2 accounts listed here, they are Champion level accounts. You should be able to get to at least Champion III if you are an active player.
The splits will be 60 (me)/40 (player). All rewards cards will be sent to the ottermaker service to be converted to 101% of their DEC value. DEC will be automatically split and sent to my account and your account. So you need your own STEEM blockchain account to receive the DEC.
Let's hit next season hard!
So those two accounts have been taken, at least for the moment.
But fear not, noble warrior! More accounts are coming. Now that automation is installed, I'm going to be rolling out many different accounts at many silver, gold, and champion levels as quickly as possible.
