Many will remember GameKingAT from the early days of GWENT’s pro ladder. A true soldier to the grind, the young Austrian was never far from the top of the leaderboard and was able to attend every GWENT Slam that Lifecoach put together. He came close to winning GWENT Slam #1, where a dominating performance against ImpetuousPanda’s Mill list earned him a cult following. Unfortunately, he fell short and was unable to take down Freddybabes in the final, but that didn’t stop him from returning to win GWENT Slam #2.
Don’t forget about the Challenger #4 Qualifier, which will be held on July 28-29th (Saturday and Sunday)!
This weekend saw the sixth official GWENT Open in the GWENT Masters series, and the players proved the meta wasn’t on auto-pilot. With everything from Sihil to Imlerith: Sabbath making an appearance, this was one of the most diverse tournaments yet.
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.
