[UPDATED] Faction Challenge is back!

Side with the mighty Empire of Nilfgaard or bloodthirsty Monsters, compete for dominance over the battlefield over a week of intense skirmishes, and earn rewards!

The Challenge will last till February 1st, 2PM CET.

1. You need to win at least 1 game with either side of the Faction Challenge to join the event.
2. Only wins achieved during the challenge (i.e. not your overall career victories) with either Nilfgaard or Monsters count toward your challenge allegiance. 
3. Challenge progress is determined by wins against all factions: those participating (Nilfgaard, Monsters) and not participating (Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, Skellige) in the challenge.
4. The number of your wins with factions not participating in the challenge does not affect your challenge allegiance.
5. Playing games via friend challenge does not count.
