Greetings @splinterlands mates, Finally Kickstarter/Fundition campaign ended with great numbers of pledge amounts. $305k total was pledged in the whole crowdfund!!!... 23 days ago I Pledged US 1000$ on Splinterlands Fundition Crowdfund and after that I added $1000 more with that. SM team tempted all players and investors to pledge more on crowdfund for exciting bonuses. Even some people took a loan from great @neoxian bank to participate in the crowdfunding. Before Kickstarter/Fundition started I bought 500(+75) UNTAMED packs from Steemmonsters (via MonsterMarket) just after the UNTAMED release goes live and after few days crowdfunding started and I felt so bad because I thought I will miss all those bonuses. But after a few days SM team confirmed that they will give out digital reward bonuses to those who bought packs at an early stage. So my total investment to Fundition $2011 and I will get Bonuses for $3000. There Four major crowdfunding quest unlocked during this period, Chain golem Quest, Alchemy Potion Quest, Legendary Potion Quest And Orbs Packs Quest. Those quests unlocked just after the conditions/targets fulfilled. Let's see what was those targets/conditions and how many bonuses for those quests.

As you can see the higher tier you have the higher amount of rewards you will get. But sometimes lower tier also become profitable than higher tier. Every splinterlands players are curious about CHAIN GOLEM. Because we yet don't know how many bcx needed to max UNTAMED edition cards and also what will be the UNTAMED edition cards burn rate. On this post I am going to compare 5x $200 = $1000 vs 1x $1000 = $1000 Pledge and also 2x $1000 = $2000 vs 1x $2500 = $2500 pledge. As far as discussed on the maverick channel my assume UNTAMED combine rate will be the same as BETA edition, but the burn rate will be lower than BETA. So for better understanding, I am counting UNTAMED combine rate same as BETA and burn rate for CHAIN GOLEM - standard (1000 Dec/bcx ) and gold foil ( 50000 Dec/bcx). As I said those burn rates just assumption and taking as example for calculation understanding.
5 x $205 VS 1 x $1005
So this is the difference between 5x $205 pledges and single $1005 pledges. At first come to cost, I don't think everyone need that much starter packs. So if I go for that then I will take 1 starter pack on (5x $205) rewards, for that total cost will be $1005 which is equal to single $1005. Then comes to UNTAMED PACKS, If you go with (5x $205) then you will get 25 less UNTAMED packs than single $1005, which is almost 61000 DEC loss according to current DEC market price. There is no title for (5x $205), There is
THE UNTAMED title for single $1005 tier. Now comes to Standard Chain golem, this is the reason why most of the people want (5x $205) tier. For (5x $205) tier you will get 5x MAX Chain Golem, where for single $1005 tier you will get only One MAX Chain Golem. So as I said if UNTAMED combine rate = BETA combine rate, then to One max Chain Golem = 11 bcx and if the burn rate 1000 DEC/bcx than max Chain Golem Burn amount will be 11000 DEC, so for (5x $205) tier you are getting 55000 DEC worth CG(if you burn) and for single $1005 you are getting 11000 DEC worth CG. Well, I don't know how many people will burn that card, but remember there will no new Chain Golem printing after this crowdfunding distribution. Just like Shin-lo, So maybe holding this card can be much more profitable. But, for sure after reward distribution complete there will be a war on Chain Golem. Because the amount of CHAIN GOLEM distribution is a crazy amount. Now comes to potions, if you pledge (5x $205) tier then you will get 142 less charge of legendary & Alchemy than single $1005 tier. Lastly Essence Orbs, there is no Essence Orbs for (5x $205) tier, But for single $1005 tier you will get 50 Orbs( worth 125,000 DEC).
CONCLUSION: After all this reward analysis, to me (5x $205) is the worst choice. If you choose (5x $205) tier you will get 4 extra max standard chain golem but you will lose 25 UNTAMED packs, Untamed title, 142 charges of each potions & 50 ORBS. So think before you do.
2x $1005 tier VS 1x $2500 tier
Well this one obviously for me. After ORBs quest announced many players raise their pledge amounts to $2500. because for $2500 you will get 200 Orbs. My pledge amount was $2011, I will get 2x 50 orbs = 100 orbs. But if I added $500 more then I would get 100 more Orbs. But I didn't, Why? Maybe you can think that it was a bad decision to not put $500 more, maybe it is or maybe not. Let's go in deep, the Untamed pack reward at same Roi. For (2x $1005) tier I will get 1 extra starter pack and 1 extra title too. And the big thing is for (2x $1005) tier I will get 2 x Standard Max Chain Golem and 2x Gold foil Chain Golem, where for single $2500 I will get 1x Standard Max chain golem and 1x Gold foil Chain Golem. That's what holding me to not go for $2500. So, for not going into $2500 I lose 10% bonus potion charges and 100 Orbs, but getting 1x Standard Max chain golem and 1x Gold foil Chain Golem, also one extra title. So even if 1 bcx gf chain golem burn rate down to 50,000 DEC then that will be worth 250K DEC. I can use that to buy Orbs and get 110 for that. So, the standard one is my bonus. Honestly saying to me (2x $1005) tier looks more profitable than $2500.

What I am getting from this Crowdfunding?
As I said, I will get a total of $3000 worth of crowdfunding bonuses and I am choosing (3x $1005) tier. Will get 1150 UNTAMED packs, 2 Starter Pack, 3 the Untamed Title, 3 Standard Foil MAX Chain Golem, 3 Gold Foil MAX Chain Golem, 3606 Brilliant Legendary potion charge, 3606 Brilliant Alchemy potion charge, 150 Orbs. That's it! Oh !! another thing I forgot to say, I also get chance to design an Untamed legendary summoner which comes with $5000 tier. So how I got that?? Well most of you know I belong to Neoxian Guild and every season we did raffle draw. Our guild leader @neoxian did $5000 tier pledge and he give that to the guild. That player whoever donated the most DEC to the Guild of Neoxian during Season 25 will win that and luckily I got that. Thanks to @neoxian for his generous support. That's all for now, let me know what you are getting from this crowdfund on the comment section.
