TOURNAMENT FORMAT & DECKS

Official GWENT Masters tournaments organized by CD PROJEKT RED will each follow the same Single Elimination, Best-of-Five format. A player will be eliminated from the tournament if they lose a match. To achieve victory, players must win 3 out of 5 games against their opponent. This format also applies to the matches held during the main event of licensed tournaments.
In the case of licensed tournaments not organized by CD PROJEKT RED,  an open qualifier available to all GWENT players will need to take place prior to the main event. These will be played in a Swiss-system, Best-of-Three format. A player will be eliminated after 3 match losses until only 8 players remain. To achieve victory, players must win 2 out of 3 games against their opponent.
Ahead of the tournament, each participant must build 4 decks from 4 different factions. No two decks can be of the same faction. Opponents will be able to ban, in secret, a chosen enemy deck at the beginning of each game. Once the players have each banned an enemy deck, they will choose 1 out of their 3 remaining decks to use for their first match. Winning decks can’t be used to play another match, while losing ones may be used again or swapped out for a different one.
