Because of the upcoming patch in August, I am wondering two things:
- Does the patch hit before the tournament?
- If so, does the tournament play with the old patch or the new one (including 20ish new cards)?

That's quite worrying. Surely that can't be the NEXT patch, otherwise we are pretty much waiting until September for new cards.

Patch before tournament is allways a bad/good idea bad, cause top players have there top places with prepatch decks. good, cause they need to bring something new for a short time, and it will make decks really interesting.

I hope to see patch before tournament. It would be interesting to watch, now it is too predictable and boring to watch.

Can you make prediction? Today all races have at least 2 decks, and it not contain difference of one/two gold/silver cards

I wish a new patch would hit soon (after Aug 1st, when qualifications are over), I look forward to new cards and mechanics.

Sadly, it's more likely they'll wait the end of the tournament and it will be August 26th

I hope the patch is before the tourney as well but as the Challenger tournament showed the hopes are pretty low.

An option would be to release the patch before tournament but still make the tournament with the previous patch.
Is that possible?

Maybe patch with new cards comes before tournament (I hope), since end of august is quite long. Maybe tournament will have news of the rumored single player storymode?

Storymode won't be coming until the game is 100% out of beta.

They will give news when they're ready. Posting a whiny post about it day after day isn't going to make it happen any faster.

Put me in the plus one count for releasing the patch before the tournament. I think it would greatly increase the excitement to see how the top players use the new cards. It might even bring in whole new decks instead of a few card differences.

Hopefully it can be released about a week before the tournament so the contestants have some time to try out the new patch and strategies.

Personally, watching a tournament that uses the same few decks that have been replayed repeatedly on the ladder, just isn't very exciting.

Hi :-)

If you read the "Competition Info" CDPR say that if the Patch comes out after 2 weeks before the contest they will play with this patch, so if it´s out one week before you won´t see the new patch cards there...

Im afraid they will release the new patch after the competition though... i wish i´m mistaken but i doubt it


Cheers :-)

P.S: Sorry about my english.
