Well well well, a lot has changed since I found this game, but let me start by telling you what to do.
Because if someone had told me what to do, I would not have wasted four months and probably doubled my money already.

So where did I go wrong?


My Biggest Mistake (So far)

I got some awesome advice after asking for it, I think I was playing for two months by then.
The advice was to forge my cards, upgrade them, and make them shiny.
Sounds like great advice right, and I did what was suggested without Doing My Own Research....guess what it did not help me move up at all and I spent quite a bit of GODS on it. I will explain the why of this situation below.

What A Noob Needs To Know

First of all, I struggled with the lingo, but this place will explain the Terminology.
Now, let's start with the stuff that made me feel stupid:
GU stands for God's Unchained.
And the W & L in your daily play to earn overview stand for Wins and Losses

If you forge a creature and play on a desktop, you might not find it once forged. I have to reboot the game for it to show up, the same happens when I buy one.
And last but not least if the Play button remains grey it's probably because you did not select a deck (and I actually contacted support for this, not that they could help, but I just did not understand why the Play button was not working anymore)


My Favorite Mistakes

So why was it a mistake to shine up my cards, because no one told me I should upgrade all of them to see an increase in the fragments I receive for winning a ranked battle.
Just check out the difference between 29 Meteorites & 1 plain vs 30 Meteorites.

So I played several months with a deck containing meteorites, shadows..... and plainies and hardly saw any increase in fragments without understanding why.
Another mistake, that I keep making till today is giving a card I just played blitz and then wanting to attach the opposing GOD in the first turn, I think I will never learn to not do that.
My last favorite mistake, copy-buying a deck. I found a pretty cheap deck with a pretty good rating and I bought 90% of it. When playing I found that 30% of the cards I bought did not suit me. So instead of copy-buying a whole deck, I would suggest slowly integrating them into your existing decks one by one.


Where to buy?

Tokentrove is fine for buying and selling if you ask me.
By the way, I made several buying mistakes, one was that I thought I was smart and bought two of these girls:
Now they are awesome, no complaints there but....
OOPS OOPS OOPS; you can have only one copy of cards with a legendary rarity.
And there is one more....
Last month I told you I was gonna save up to buy this guy:
66 GODS seemed a fair price, but when I made those 66 GODS this guy was worth 85 GODS????
Since then he came down a bit, but I felt quite stupid for not buying at 66.

How Not To Get Ahead in GU

Just do what I do, play the game for 3 months every night 10 games a day without any research or asking questions. It´s the best way to waste your time, and become an autodidact or better said an unguided.

So the best way to get ahead is to play the game 10 ranked games each night and ask questions. Dive into the realms and understand how the game works.
Because as soon as I started asking questions I increased quite a bit. And challenging myself to write about it also helped because it pointed out that there were some things I had not thought about.

Another useful piece of advice

Play, Forge, Buy, Repeat.
The cadence of the game is nothing more than that. Invest the GODS you make in forging and buying cards. Don´t go on a shopping spree like I did. Add a card that seems to fit your strategy and try it out, if it works for you you´ll know soon enough.

Have a Strategy

After your first weeks, you should start thinking about and looking at other people's strategies. Because you can pick and mix cards all you want, but it will not be a winning deck if there is no strategy structure in the deck's build.
Now there is more than enough out there about strategy, but if you are just starting out and don´t want to spend too much quick and deadly might be a good start.

Multiple Decks

Personally, I focused on hitting the ground running with one deck and not diversifying until I had some sort of clue about what I was doing in these realms.
I still think it´s a good approach, although if you are thinking about multiple decks early on experimenting with different gods is a smart thing if, unlike me, you don´t have one god calling you.

I heard the voice of deception from day one, and it´s only now that I am thinking about pledging my allegiance to multiple deities.

Handy sites I found too late:

So if you want to check out stats on decks and keep an eye on your own add your uses to GU Decks:
https://gudecks.com/meta/match-results?username=bitcoinbaby
To keep an eye on what you are holding and what cards are Forgeable I use GUForgehttps://guforge.com/4523822
And I am still using https://market.immutable.com/ but why I don´t know I guess it gives me a nice overview of my inventory and what I have on sale.

Selling

That reminds me of another expensive noob fail. When I first started selling I had no idea where to find a proper price index. So I just put in a number and if it did not sell I lowered it....you can´t get more degen than that.
Nowadays I use Tokentrove for buying, selling, and checking what price I should use to sell.
I figured out something btw regarding buying and selling. I often find that 1 shadow card is cheaper than 5 meteor cards. So I thought myself so smart buying that meteor card which it probably was.

But when the 5 meteors are cheaper than the Shadow card, even after forging, it does not always work out. It might be a gut feeling but Shadow cards do not seem to sell as easily as Meteor cards. But that is only a hunch that I need to keep an eye on.
Other than that I am selling only cards from Gods I have no interest in playing. And use the tokens to buy cards that fit my Godly taste.

Metamask

One more thing, I struggled slightly with setting this up so just as a little heads up:
To buy and sell you need to set up Metamask first, there are probably more options but as you are a noob just do what I say😁.
Creating A wallet



If you have Metamask already just jump to 2:10
Okay not doing the whole tutorial stuff there is enough of that online. I wanted to talk about how to get ahead quickly as a noob, something I failed in so I am the best person to tell you how not to.

Now I still have a million questions and I will work them out step by step and keep you posted. So if you are new to the game, you are not too late. Probably just in time as the bulls are coming and GODS is picking up the pace for the first time in 6 months.
Now it´s not at all about the money....or is it?

It is because I need that magical internet money to improve my deck and if you play it smart and time it right you are just ahead of the bulls....meaning that while you are enjoying a good game and improving your deck....the worth of the token backing your cards is increasing. So if after two years you are done playing, it might be actually worth something.

But starting out expect to spend 2 hours playing 10 games and make 15 dollar cents.
So a last piece of advice, and probably the best piece is: don´t invest your time if you are not having fun playing.
 

For now;

Thank goodness you made it till the end Pees, Love and I am out of here!
