WOAH! So STOKED! The chart below shows the number of games played since launch. You can see a steady march towards new all time highs since DEC and Guilds came out at the end of May! This is a very healthy season end and I'm very excited!
We changed the fighting system in February. So, the first couple of weeks were literally just people spamming the same team over and over at each other. So, with little effort we achieved 47k games played.
In February the system changed and now you have to figure out team compositions, you know who your opponent is, and we introduced more rules. We lost players through a very long crypto winter through may, but with the introduction of DEC and Guilds we've been growing despite Steem having lost 99% of it's value since all time highs.
This latest season end marks the highest number of games played in the new system and we're gearing up for the true ALL TIME HIGHS. Maybe that'll be next season.
Splinterlands is Strong!
All that's to say that the Steem community, monster fans, and the whole Splinterlands community is doing really well. We're growing in an insanely bad bear market. Seriously, this game is unstoppable. Look below. We just hit a card marketcap of $3M!!!! How's your portfolio of things other than summoners and monsters done?
Time is Running out!
Look, Spinterlands will have a post soon detailing how alphas did in the past year since they sold out. Short answer, really effing good. Beta packs are nearly out. I doubt they'll make it out of September. There's no way we make it by Halloween. Literally any day could be the last day now cause if there's even a minor spike or anything happens in the market to steem, btc, ltc, trx, or eth you could see some heavy purchasing and miss your chance.
I'm so proud of this team and this community! Thanks guys! Splinterlands is killin' it can't wait to see how crazy this thing gets in a bull market!!!

$marketcap is a command that we've used in Discord for over a year to track market prices. It tallies up the asking prices and multiplies it by the bcx that exists. There are many ways to count marketcap. I'm not advocating this is the best one, but it is the steady value that we've used for over a year. It's just a data point and you can track this stuff however you want. This is how I choose and think it's a great and steady metric.
