What I love and hate about the new SteemMonsters update!
<div class="text-justify">
  
I have been waiting for months now for new stuff to be added on SteemMonsters and finally... something interesting was finally added and one that I actually welcome with two wide arms open. *So good job SM team! XD*
  
By now, most of you probably had already heard about the new SteemMonster update: the release of the so-called '**Dark Energy Crystals**'.

'Dark Energy Crystals (DEC)' can be obtained by players either by burning/converting owned cards to DEC's or through winning ranked matches, which then can be used to buy items in the shop or to purchase 'Essence Orbs' or simply 5 new random exclusive promo cards. *How cool is that?! XD*

What I hate though is the amount of DEC distribution:

</center>
  
As usual there is a huge difference as to the amount of DEC a low rated player gets compared to those at the very top. 
  
Bronze league players get ~10DEC's per ranked matched won while those in the higher Silver leagues gets around ~35 DEC's so I am assuming those in the Champion leagues gets way a lottttt more DEC's per ranked match won. XD
  
Obviously, this is somewhat fair as those at the very top invested more money and time (*talking about the non-bot players XD*) in the game but for poor people like me who is stingy in buying cards in the market, this will again create a huge gap between the rich and the poor.
  
I myself got ~450 DEC's today so players with double the rating as I am will likely get ~1800 DEC's if my math is correct. XD If they are bot players it's not unlikely that they will even reach 2500 DEC's daily and thus will get additional 5 new promo exclusive cards daily from the Essence Orbs purchase. *sigh* XD
  
>Lastly and what I hated the most with this new update is that the steemmonsters discord bot have stopped working today following the new update. T_T No more free $0.3-$0.4 upvote every 3 days (I share my SM journey twice a week)

EDIT: SteemMonsters Discord Bot is now working  so I guess everything's fine by me now. XDv  

I still do hate the fact that the amount invested in the game plays a veryyyy big part in one's progress and rewards but can't really complain much as it's also my choice to still continue being a free2play player.  I just hope that I will still be able to stay at least in the Gold leagues  after this new update. 

I remember back then when the rewards were still beta pack cards I was able to reach and stay in the Diamond II leagues. After the Reward Edition update, it was very hard to go back to the Diamonds but was still quite easy to reach Gold I. Months after that, nowadays, the highest rank I'm able to climb is only Gold II. Lol
