The Evolution of GWENT’s Factions

Imagine for a moment that you are the Lady of Time and Space herself, Ciri, and you’ve just travelled back to November 2016. Would you recognise the GWENT you’ve devoted hundreds of hours to? While it’s enjoyed a loyal following, there are many popular players that weren’t around during the very early days of Closed Beta. This was back when there wasn’t even a ranked mode and a “pro ladder” was the stuff of a Dragons Dream. The archetypes that made up the various factions have been through months of evolution – something which we recently covered in “5 Gwent cards that defined the past” – but with everyone gearing up for Homecoming, let’s take a more in-depth look at how the factions have changed.

Will round wins work in arena too? I hope they will since you are winning rounds, and you don't get the daily rewards if you don't do ladder.
Thank you !
Have a great day !

1) why SPORES card is still in game???? worst card design everrr (even worse than and !)!!! and it clogs whispering hillock's cardpool! very often! (this is veiled hint to delete it from gaaaaame)

2) can you invite SWIM for balance consultant work???? SWIIIIIIIIIM

3) ANY CHANCE coinflip probleeeeem (main balance problem anyway) will be fixed (ddd) ???? MAKE THEM

4) my friend played 200 hours and he have only1/6 of all golds and half of other cards. Such pattern is approximately for most of players i thinkkkk. The more cards you add, the worse for beginners, and the system of scraps is the same as a year ago, when the cards were much smaller in amount. I have 900+ hours and have all cards + i need 4 more golds. Maybe this is too much time. Any chance it will be changeddd to collect faster?? (heartstone is not excuse!)

Dear Burza, my respects man! and for all the gwent team! I have just one problem with this game : Will commons be more common in this game? This will help us to complete the collection faster. now I saw Super Skovoroda wrote a similar opinion and I think the distribution of rarity of the cards is the main problem.

Hey Burza! Firstly, good job all the guys at the CDPR. specially the artwork is top notch.
I would like to ask;

1. are you going to rework cards like Serrit which is a worse case of Elites? The rework on Treason was really nice btw.
2. can u make make locks good again? (with maybe armor or quen) cause right now nobody plays lock, as it is punishing (Tempo wise - consider droping a 7 str aucks) and it is jus easier to zap or viper witcher the cards, so most engines are impossible to work with; hence the game is getting to the point where it is jus who can put more numbers on the board each turn, and very little snowball potenital.
3.please introduce more cards to complete archetypes like Relict decks, Moonlight and etc.

Thanks again,
You guys are the bests

One of you guys used to wear a T-shirt with Ciri on it, will it be available in the shop?
Will be there premium keg promotions and/or half price transmuting in the future too? I missed both of them.

True. However, thanks to the arcane powers of transmigration, when the dedicated thread arrives, someone just possibly might be able to shift these existing questions over there. . . . No promises, though.

Hi Burza,
What exactly is the plan for Mac (and Linux)? I (and a lot of people) really want a Mac version

Hi Pavko (Burza),
Great work with the game and all the week in gwent videos. Despite what people might say, the current meta is one of the most diverse we've seen in the game.

1. When is the premium Pavko card with Burza voice-over coming? I've been saving powder for that.
2. When mid-winter update was released, rethaz said in a reddit reply that quen will come back in the future. Now you say that the core set is complete, so does this mean that quen is never coming back as a part of the base set?

Dear Burza, i'll leave my questions here since i will be at work during the AMA (sigh) hence i will not be able to post them at that time. I hope you'll read them and answer them if possible.

1) Are you guys considering solutions for the coinflip problem? And if yes what did you tried (just to get an idea)?
2) Will you fix the mulligan bug? for reference:
3) ETA on new expansion and his theme? Also will it comes with a new keg type?
4) ETA on thronebreaker?
5) What are the dev's intentions regarding create, which is hated a lot by the hardocore gwent's players?
6) Can we expect improvements on the UI?
7) Why arena don't progress the daily quest and daily round progress? And can it change in the future?
8) Speaking of arena, it's possible to get a kind of keg ticket as a reward so you can redeem it in exchange of any kind of keg instead of the "classic" one (if more kegs are going to hit the game)?
9) Is a new game mode in the work, and if yes can we get an hint on what it will be?
10) Will you guys ever make Kambi and Queensguards playable?
11) There will be any new kind of event (other than faction challenges and single player mini adventures) in future?
12) Titles, bords and avatar (especially the hard ones to get) will be available again in the future for those that wants to collect them?
13) Will we see more board options, like for example class specific ones (etc...)?
14) Can we expect a fix in the end of the game section when a player forfeit?

Dear BURZA, I apologize for my English. Here are my questions:

1) Will there be any changes to the issue of the first move?

I suggest adding to the player's hand a second card with the following properties:
Play the unit card from your hand and strength it by 4 stats. If the card has been discarded, remove the random card from your hand. You can not mix a card into a deck.

2) ProLadder. Is it possible to reduce the number of games in the prodlader to unlock the maximum MMR so that the overall MMR is more dependent on the percentage of wins than on the number of games?

P.S. The problem with the mulligan really exists.

Hello, Pavlick! Thx for great game! =) When we wiil see company with Queen Meva?)

Hello Paweł and team.

First of all, thanks for the game. I'm with you more than one year, and it was a really good one.

The second, many thanks personally to you, because you're almost the main source of love and hate for all Gwent players, and this is hard, I guess. Who cares that Gwent doesn't equal Burza? No one. Haters gonna hate.

And, the third, three questions from me:
1. What do you think of Lifecoach's Gwent inactivity, the reason of which is probably because of how game has been changed since he liked it the last time? AFAIK, he doesn't like Create mechanic, like in Hearthstone, for example. Do you have any plans to decrease RNG factor or maybe increase it instead? I'd prefer that Gwent is a game of skill, not game of luck. What about you?
2. Sorry for asking the 9000th time, but what do you think of coinflip and mulligan problems?
3. Maybe I'm wrong, but it feels like rewards become less qualitative. There are too many almost equal frames, meaningless titles, and avatars could have much better phrases (for some of them game should be 18+ though). Any comment on this?

Thanks in advance for the answers and good luck!

Hello there! And thanks for the game I really love. <3
Sooo... My questions are here!

===| 1st and really important to whole our community:
Could you formulate your position about tracker(s)? Please, say it – straight and clear. Right now we are segregated. There are players, who use trackers and have obvious advantage and there are players, who can't have it (console players for example). And that's not so fair play. What the developers of cool e-sport multiplayer duel game do right now to normalize that kind of situation? And, of course, how can segregated console player to fix it? Maybe you could create a way to move my account from PS4 to PC? I would love that. Because I do not want play without tracker while many other players (and my opponents, of course) have that kind of advantage. Please, answer, that is really important thing!

===| 2nd and kinda light:
Do you think Monster players or Northern players will be happy with that kind Faction Challenge reward – «the winning faction will get guaranteed first 3 draft slots of Arena»? Why that's good and fun and motivate for struggling? ))

Thank you for your answer and for your game!
