Hello to all of you fellow Monsters! Let me say to everyone who has been here a year or have just recently started Happy Anniversary to you! There are actually quite a few people that have been here for so long since the very start! I need your name in the comments below! I am lucky to be included in them. I posted on Steemit everyday since I started the end of May, 2017. I posted mainly photographs as well as recipes. I was highly interested in finding a perfect crypto game for me though to have fun with! I saw a coming soon Steem Monsters post like 5 months prior to their release in the end of May, 2018. I found Steem Monsters literally 2 days after it was live as they started buying packs. I remember being mad I lost 2 days, lol! Back then, all you could do was to buy the cards and like myself level them up to get ready for battle which was coming around September of 2018. The cards were the first cards which are Alphas. There were not any stats on them. Everyone had gold fever as well! Including myself! You wanted to open up a Gold card as the prices were crazy high for them. Gold Foil Legendary cards were around $700 to $1200 USD value! Often at times whales would come in and buy them all up to make their set complete! Lots of people would stream their pack openings live and we had so many giveaways as well! This is my favorite t-shirt gifted to me from the awesome Team member @reseller

A wonderful community started to form into which is known now as the Splinterlands community! Founders Aggroed and Yabapmatt are outstanding Steem Witnesses and I believe their kindness rubbed off into the community. Everyone has said how much they do love Splinterlands and the community as it is truly one of a kind! So many people helping others, gifting cards, delegating cards for free,etc. I have witnessed so many acts of kindness here. It is amazing to be apart of it. Back then I had a little BTC, LTC and Ethereum. I had played crypto kitties which was awful and cryptofighters which was not much of an improvement. The Ethereum blockchain was just so slow for me and also the fees were outrageous! I felt right at home at Steem Monsters back then and eventually put all of my little crypto stash into them. With the release of DEC Dark Energy Crystals recently the game just got so much more fascinating! Wow! I can only imagine how much Splinterlands will grow more then. I love the game and I love the community here! I want to mention everyone I have ever come across in the community but know I won't be able to remember all names. Thanks so much for being here and I can't wait to see May, 2020! Splinterlands to the MOON!!!

Join me here for a brief little tour over my old videos from June, 2018 and up!

These are some of my favorite old memes!---

thanks clove!!!!!!!!! happy one year anniversary!!! i first heard about SM's from @exyle and his amazing posts about it early on. i was already a huge fan of matt and aggroed...and used steembot tracker all the time...and read aggroed's regular posts...which were many back then. i trusted their genius! after i bought my first alpha packs...i had noooo idea what to do next. that's when i started looking for other steemians sharing ANY content at all...on the subject and FOUND YOU!'ve carved my journey here with your constant sharing...and incredible kindness. i feel like i've studied at the SM school...of clove71!!!! truly, you have give sooooooo much to ALL of us! a true leader and community member. it's an honor to battle a long side you...and lose to you most of the time lol!~ :) please keep it coming sister!!!!!!! we are with you!

You are too kind! What an incredible journey you have had! You are amazing always up there so high on the leaderboard. Exyle got a lot of people on board with those awesome posts about SM back then and even now! I did not what to do with those cards either except level them up to get ready to have a maxed set for when battling did start! I knew I wanted to battle so much! It was an accomplishment back then just to have a maxed set! What fun times and so much more to come...the guilds coming up are going to take it to a whole other level! I am excited to see what is going to happen and I am so glad and grateful to have you in this incredible community! We are all lucky!

Thanks for the mention. Was a nice surprise!

See you on the battlefield.

Thank you for all that you have done for our community.
I think generosity and kindness is contagious so when SM promotes these behaviors, then the community will follow its leaders. You are certainly one of these leaders that make this game/community more enjoyable.

Thanks so much! I still see you on the battlefield and I'm like oh no!!! LOL! You are such a great player!! You know Guilds are coming up soon! We all need to think about that. It is going to be so much more fun too! Love it!
selenia gold (420px, 10fps).gif

Thanks, you are an awesome player too. You are in the bucket of clever players where I have to change up my strategies to try to beat you.

I am looking forward to the guilds. All the new features have been great, so it should be exciting. Although I fear if all the Champion/Diamond level players unite without including the Gold/Silver/Bronze/Novice level players, then there will be a deeper segregation between the player groups. Let's see how it turns out thought. I have no clue what are the detail of the Guild feature.

I already belong to a guild called TeamPossible. We support and help each other through sharing knowledge, upvotes, and delegations. We were lending cards before the delegation feature was available so there is a lot of trust and respect within the group.

That sounds interesting! I can't wait to see what will be going on too! I'm excited about it though! That's awesome you all have been sending cards before delegation! Nice name too! :-)

I delegated my SP to SM for DEC so my vote is 0.0 !! LOl! I did however send you a booster pack for making me burst out laughing!! I love this!! I need a list like this of Old Timers- or Steem Monster O.G.'s that is!

Thanks for the mention. Loved the video from the beginning of SM. Great progress

Right?! Can you believe the cards so long ago and how we were all buying them with no stats or anything! I'm definitely addicted to the game, I can't help it, it is too much fun and who doesn't want to have fun?!! LOl! Glad you are here!!
Silvershield Paladin (831px, 10fps).gif

I was like a layman, I bought more than 200 packs without knowing that the cards can be used for playing or why some cards are high in the markets. hope I did not sell any legendary gold foil by mistake or maybe I didn't get any. SM is my first online gaming experience and I am very. I am playing for any miracle and rewards but yes I get lots of fun too.


and as you mentioned the Angel of Light used to be 6.99$
Even without stats.

And btw weren't the legendary cards all golden at the start ?

and when they introduced Gold Foil cards they changed legendaries into purple colour.

Yes!! All GOLD! I loved the design but I also love the modern new and futuristic designs they have as well! The site looks incredible now! This is too funny!!!! hahaha!!! Very True too!!!!

Always in need of those summoners
