This is my first season in SteemMonsters and I can't believe i put off playing the game for so long. It was probably because i didn't want to spend so much time on the game (you don't have to) but also because i didn't want to spend that $10 ( i should have).
As the game and economy continue to grow, i think there's no point delaying, especially since the price of Steem continues to fall. Longer term, i'm starting to have more faith in SteemMonsters than Steem.
Longer term, i'll probably have to invest in summoners to make it to the Gold League and beyond but for now, i've bought two legendary cards that have made the climb to Silver II a lot easier and also the game a lot more enjoyable.
Say what you want but losing 10 games in a row with basic cards is not fun at all.
Both cards have been very helpful, Ruler of the Seas probably more so. The Minotaur Warlord is a good one to have against magic users. Hopefully the fact that they're legendary also means that they keep their valuation better over time.
Bought 3 Untamed Packs. Hopefully the cards in them, which will have at least a rare one, will be worth the $2 each. So far, my impression has been that cards less than epic tend to be worth little at least when they're only level 1.
