So Land Is Finally Coming Next Week!

Do repost and rate:

It felt like forever (and then some) but it seems like Land 1.5 is finally going to be deployed on next Tuesday as of the most recent town-hall. First we've heard about land was in early 2020 and needless to say, nobody in the community expected things to take nearly as long as they did in the end. On a personal note, seeing Farpetrad repeatedly post that development on land had only started shortly before Splinterfest is something that could get me really salty.

But it is what it is, and with Matt taking over I'm all for a fresh start and rebuilding trust again. So I'm not going to get into that stuff any more and will instead focus on the positive side of things. Land is finally coming, and I'm really exited for it! So in this article, I'm going to discuss my personal plan for land and what I'm going to do moving forward.

As you guys may know, I was one of the lucky people that got to buy a full region during the first presale and I've held on to it ever since. Over time, I've bought some additional plots when ever I saw a good deal and so right now, I'm sitting on a total of 1,056 plots. Getting all of them running is going to require an insane amount of SPS. If I were to put max level monsters on all of my plots, I would require a total of 52,800,000 DEC, so close to $53,000. Unsurprisingly, I don't have that amount of money sitting in my account... not even close.

I had started to save up DEC several times over the years but then usually something else came up. The latest episode of this happening was the Rebellion presale. I went back and forth between buying Rebellion packs and saving everything for Land several times but in the end decided to get myself some Rebellion packs. Firstly, because I want to keep competing at the top of Modern Champion League but also secondly, because I wanted to support the company and show my support for this whole fresh start thing. So I ended up buying 1,200 packs in the presale:

While this used up most of the DEC I had saved up I'm somewhat confident, that this still was the right decision to make. Actually playing  will remain my highest priority and on top of that, I've probably made about 1,000,000 SPS just from holding that land all the time so I'm not really in a rush to get as much return as possible out in the early days of Land 1.5. That said, I still want to utilize my land of course and come Land 2.0 I want to be as ready as possible to fully dive in the then way more complex economy.

Land 1.5 will only feature three different resources that can be harvested:

  • Research Tokens
  • Grain to feed the monsters working on land

As indicated above, I feel like I've already made enough SPS from land. Additionally, between ranked, tournaments, brawls, and staking rewards I should still earn about 1,000 SPS a day even without the bonus from SPS. Also, with everything we've learned from Matt about the Secret of Praetoria, I really want to get involved with that early on. In terms of grain, I will try to produce all the grain I need myself but nothing more. I've heard from several people that they plan to go hard on grain but honestly, I feel like that's a dead end. We might see some early high value sales for grain initially, but by the time the grain market is in the game most people will already be self sufficient so I don't believe that there are any major gains possible from farming grain.

So what does that mean for my initial setup? I do have 6 rare and 1 Epic occupied plot in my region, so I want to get those up and running for SPS eventually:

Everything else will go towards Research Tokens and grain to keep everything running. Because of my Rebellion shopping spree, though, I will only have enough DEC to set up 20 plots initially. With this very modest amount, I'm only going to man my Epic occupied plot and everything else will go to magic plots for research tokens and natural plots for grain production.

I was lucky enough to pull one extra legendary plot in my region and also got one legendary Magic plot. So these 10 natural legendary plots should hopefully be enough to get the grain production going from the get go. I will then put everything that's left towards my most rare magic plots and just see where that takes me from there. My keeps and castle will sit idle initially because my plots are obviously spread out across all the tracts and so I don't feel like I have a tract that would really make it worth my while to get the tract or keep already set up. So at least in my region, all the tax will get burned completely - you may consider that my contribution to reducing the total amount of SPS that's ever going to be there.

With Rebellion around the corner, for the moment that's going to be everything I put into land. My first priority will then be to max out my Rebellion set. As always, I intend to use a regular foil deck, so all my gold foils will be sold on the market and converted to additional packs and singles. The same is true for any spare copies of the promo cards I get and hopefully, this should already get me quite a bit towards maxing out my first cards. Everything that's still missing after that will be acquired aggressively, so I'm totally prepared to burn my daily SPS gains and sell my vouchers until I have the whole set maxed out, which I hope to achieve no later then the end of December.

After that, the Conflicts system is already going to launch which means I will need to acquire enough battle wagons to stake my (then complete) Rebellion set. I won't burn SPS for that, but anything else coming in will go towards that part until I have enough battle wagons to stake everything I have. Only then, and only if nothing else comes up, I'll start to look at land again. Starting from there, I will acquire additional DEC from renting cards and SPS, and possibly selling additional vouchers again. I expect renting returns to go up quite a bit again, so I should make about 10k DEC total a day again which would allow me to bring another plot online every 5 days.

So while I'm really excited about land finally going online it's also going to quite a while before everything is really set up on my end. Let's see how far away Land 2.0 is and if my priorities will change based on that. My (now not so) secret hope is that land serving will come around sooner and later and will take care of more and more of the plots I don't have in use yet. Either way, there are fun and exciting times ahead of us!

And that's all from me for today, thank you all for reading and see you next time.
