April GWENT Challenger is coming… to a salt mine!

As the next GWENT Challenger tournament is approaching rapidly, we have some exciting news to share with you!

The venue of the last Challenger, Moszna Castle, was an amazing place that we could transform into a true Nilfgaardian stronghold. We’ve been searching far and wide for a perfect location for the next, Mahakam-themed, tournament, and we’ve finally found it – the April GWENT Challenger will take place on April 28th-29th in the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine!

We changed the venue for the April tournament, which was initially set to take place in the United States, because we want to focus on finding the coolest places and ways to make the streaming experience of the upcoming tournaments as fun as possible. We want to provide you with the most authentic experience of The Witcher universe, and exciting & unforgettable esports adventures. We’ve removed the tentative locations from the GWENT Masters schedule but don’t worry – we still plan to bring future GWENT tournaments to different countries, including USA, China & Japan!

As for “Wieliczka” Salt Mine, it is one of the most valuable monuments of culture in Poland, featured on UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List. The mine combines centuries of tradition and modernity — hundreds of years of history locked in an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure. If you enjoyed your trip to the Nilfgaardian stronghold of Moszna Castle, you’ll definitely love the what we have in store for you at the salt mines!

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.
