Let’s talk about the Gwent Roadmap for 2020

This article was written by SynergyGod3773 and edited by Sevenzh.

The Gwent team, led by Pawel Burza and Jason Slama, recapped Gwent Homecoming’s first year and brought to the forefront their aspirations for the upcoming calendar year. These topics included all of the following: PS4/Xbox One – Support will be discontinued for consoles

Deckbuilding on Patch Day: Thrive Monsters

Hey guys, I was thinking about doing another generic, “Top x cards of the expansion” article, but we see enough of those. This month, I wanted to write about something a little different, and I’m not sure how it’ll turn out.

Not wanting

A META mill deck?

I was always fond of milling my opponents. Before the patch that changed the Mulligan system you could easily mill your opponent in Ranked matches. And my-oh-my how fun was that! But since the patch became live all the milling fun just died. No more over-drawing for your opponents was available as they would only get more redraws like that. And the solution? It was nowhere to be found… Then the New Season had come. It brought something new and

Tier List for the Modern Age

The update to the mulligan system brought back the consistency that we all loved about pre-homecoming Gwent. As a result, we have seen the return of leaders like Unseen Elder and Morvran Voorhis, since they are no longer held back by too few mulligans. Moreover, it’s easier to run low provision bronzes and situational cards now, since you can mulligan them or find them much easier as needed. Some notable cards from the current meta are Geralt: Yrden, Hanmarvyn’s Blue

Gwent Meta Update – Dec 12, 2018

Intro It has been scarcely a week since the December 4th Patch hit the Gwent scene, and boy has it shaken up the Meta. Among the many changes to arrive in the game include huge nerfs to heavily used cards such as the Witcher Trio (Eskel, Lambert, and Vesemir), many of the Nilfgaard and Scoia’tael bronzes, and some of the more controversial cards such as Xavier Lemmens. Additionally, many cards received mild buffs to help them see the light of

Gwent Meta Update – Nov 27, 2018

While the meta still exists in this form I’ve decided bring all this hard work and rising decklists to light.
