Hotfix is now available!

New hotfix for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

With this update, our main focus was to fix all major issues experienced by the players, especially the connection errors and the visual bug which made it look like Arena decks could be played in other game modes.

Full list of changes:
  • Fixed an issue with double matchmaking in Arena mode.
  • Fixed problems with entering scrolls in Arena mode.
  • Fixed an issue causing “Unknown error” when exiting arena.
  • Fixed an issue causing the game to freeze when canceling and re-entering matchmaking.
  • Fixed an issue which made it look like Arena decks could be played in other game modes.
  • Fixed connection issues.

Congratulations to the winner of GWENT Open #5!

GWENT Open #5 is a wrap and proved to be one of the most diverse we’ve seen. Not only did it include a returning champion — some old veterans showed up, too! But it was the new faces who truly shined, and AndyWand in particular — a player that we first saw at GWENT Slam #2.

If the fix is hot, then why is that poor soldier (still) freezing? Heh, better taken some more fitting background like Korathi Heatwave.

Ahem, back on topic...

The picture represents moments just before the hotfix hits. Notice the crow, it's curiously looking up.

So just completed an arena run and 0 DCs. Also didn't see that "trying to reconnect" thing even once. Even lag seems a lot less now. Hope it stays this way forever.

Please release balance changes. I know you said you didn’t want to do it mid season but how is this season any different from the last if there are no balance changes?

its funny because a few games after the hot fix, which did nothing btw, i got disconnected from my 8th game of arena, which was a win 100% btw. Fix the problems for real next time

Disappointing and frustrating experience.

Connection issues are still quite prevalent

EDIT: Just came back home and after I did a quick research, I found out that the problems are probably with my internet provider. What a shi**y coincidence that my internet has problems the same day patch is uploaded . I would like to apologize for doing hasty conclusions and I deleted original reply for not being true anymore. I hope my connection issues will be over soon and I will try the new hotfix again.

The hotfix didn't fix squat. First Ranked match of the day and the game gets stuck in r1.

The ability to play Ranked even when you started an Arena is a big improvement. I really like to have the freedom of switching from a mode to another without being commited to do the full Arena run when I started it.
So far I haven't experienced any issue with the servers, it seem to have worked at least for me.

Thx a lot guys.

Honestly it'll pass, WD being one of the worst pick in limited since pretty much everyone open pass on R1 and dry pass on R2.
The only way to get a decent value out of it is to drop it R1 and pray that you win the CF (so you kinda block your opponent's open pass) but even then, as soon as he/she gets ahead on tempo he/she will be out of here (which is easier to achieve in Arena than it is in constructed).

In any other scenario she's just a 3 points unit that thin out your deck, which ironically isn't that good in a format where you're most likely to have some blanks (better keep a good hand than mulliganing into a blank).

So far I tested it on PS4 and PC, and it's really a lot more stable. However, for those who are still having problems, please report here: https://www.playgwent.com/en/contact-support

if anything, the servers are worse on xbox. and there is no rhyme or reason as i think i exp'd maybe half a dozen diff situations with disconnections. please fix your servers, especially when you give daily quests to make me play arena, yet its the worst mode for DC's. 2 lives lost. i quit playing after the last one as figured that's how #3 would hit me. and please don't ask me to report to support. i did, but the last time i reported this crap, i was ignored.
