Public Beta for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game set for May 24th!

Scheduled to begin May 24th, Public Beta will be available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Public Beta is the next step in the game’s development process, one that we’d be honored to continue alongside everyone who’s been with us thus far,” said Benjamin Lee, Development Director at CD PROJEKT RED. “It’s also a chance for many new gamers to play GWENT for the first time and we’re looking forward to making the game even better with their help,” added Lee.
Watch the Public Beta overview live on the official CD PROJEKT RED Twitch channel
The stream will begin today (May 17th) at 9PM CEST
GWENT’s Public Beta is a fresh start for everyone. Card collections and player progress will reset to ensure gamers begin on equal footing. Everyone who participated in the Closed Beta will receive Card Kegs, as well as other in-game rewards for their activity. Additional information regarding Closed Beta participation rewards is available here.
The switch from Closed to Public Beta will entail a short technical transition period starting May 22nd. Until the start of Public Beta on May 24th, game servers will be offline for maintenance. During this time, GWENT’s Facebook and Twitter channels will provide updates on the game’s status.
More information about Public Beta, as well as GWENT in general, is available in the FAQ section of playgwent.com.

Both of these statements are word for word what they said... we are now notified 1 week in advance and haven't had new cards for much longer than 2 months.

We should be expecting at least 40 new cards for open beta right?

We've known the open beta and wipe were coming for months. Also the cards every 2 months is the post release plan.

That is not what they said. Back in December they said new cards and ladder resets every two months from then on, they also said they were going to let us play the campaign in closed beta and that it would be coming soon back in December. We never had a ladder resets and new cards came out 2 months only one time and they never launched the campaign in closed beta.

I am really curious about this threads picture. Looks like a feminine wild hunt warrior to me, amirite folks? I don't recognize her (if it's a her)neither from the books nor from the games. Does someone have an idea about the identity of this individual?

Yay! I have bought many already. I'm so excited for re-opening those kegs. It's going to feel like Christmas again

Ah, maybe I can finally get Roach! That buggy horse seems to be avoiding me. Maybe that changes in open beta. I hope, I hope...

Let's hope the reason why she wears the Red Riders' mask is not that she's ugly

Lets see the balance changes. Hopefully we can use more cards then before lol. In todays gwent u see only the same shit being played and that will not lead the game to success.
My hopes for the nerfs: Igni deleted or even all stupid scorch effects, retarded consumes, retarded NK chains.
