https://www.playgwent.com/en#about

Gwent, or more accurately Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, is a strategy card game originally created within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt before being moved to a standalone card game by its developers, CD Projekt Red.

Played on a game board, or battlefield, players take turns playing cards with the goal of having a higher battlefield strength than their opponent. Cards can be units played on one of three rows (melee, ranged and siege rows) with a numerical strength value and ability, or special effect cards that affect units or even the battlefield in unique ways. End the round with a higher strength value you’re your opponent and you take the round. Win two out of three rounds and you win the match.

Here is a short video that might help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVbewPvzBCA

Heavily reliant on deck building, sequencing, planning and bluffing, Gwent is unlike any other card game you’ve ever played. There are no life totals, no alternate win conditions or even resources. The only way to win is to have more points than your opponent at the end of a round and to win 2 of the 3 rounds in your match.

You can currently play Gwent on the PC and Xbox Live, with the PS4 client launching during the open beta and Android/OS clients planned. There is some client cross-compatibility, with PC and Xbox Live players currently playing together. Most of us play on the PC, but you can play wherever you'd like and each system features it's own leader board.

Open Beta

Currently in Open Beta, Gwent has seen significant gameplay changes during its development. Many players fell in love with Gwent in The Witcher 3, but players will find that the Gwent they play today is very different than the Gwent they may be used to. If you played Gwent in The Witcher 3, or even early versions of the closed beta, you’ll recognize the core game play of Gwent but almost nothing else. Some of the significant changes you can expect to find with the release of the open beta include:

No more faction bonuses. There are still factions, yes (you’ll find more on them later in this post), but the faction bonuses have been worked into that faction’s cards.
Weather is now completely different. Weather is still a mechanic in Gwent, but it no longer reduces unit strength to 1. Weather is now only applied on one side of the battlefield and on the row of your choosing, but it has varying effects based on the type of weather played (frost, fog and rain).
In addition to the 3 cards you can mulligan before the match begins, you now mulligan 1 card in between rounds 2 and 3.
Leaders are still present, but are not simply abilities you have access to until played. They now represent a unit with an accompanying effect.
There are several new keywords, card balance changes and even game design changes that make Gwent very different than what it once was. Whether you are a returning player or a new player, you’ll find that Gwent is currently unlike any card game you’ve played.

If you played during the closed beta and are coming back for the open beta, here is a video you can watch that goes over the changes a little more in-depth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiUfHNmsQ5w



Playing Gwent:

Gwent now features a robust tutorial that will teach you everything you need to know about playing Gwent. Because Gwent is free to download and play, it’s better that you just create an account, log in and let the client teach you everything you need to know about Gwent. In addition to learning how to play, you’ll unlock many great rewards, including every leader currently available in Gwent. The system is fully voice acted by Geralt and Ciri from The Witcher series and is based on the two characters dueling each other.

Playing For Free:

Wait did you just say Gwent is free to download and play? I did. Gwent is perhaps the greatest Free-To-Play (F2P) card game currently available. CDPR is very generous with rewarding players for playing. In addition to daily activities granting random cards, crafting materials and even packs, you’ll get rewards for leveling up, ranking up and even where you place on the leaderboards at the conclusion of a season. Even the tutorial, which offers over 5 hours of instruction, will unlock rewards.

Deck Building

Deck building is an important, fundamental feature of nearly every card game. You’ll find this is to be especially true in Gwent. To build a deck you begin by choosing a leader card. Your leader card is basically your general, hero, boss, or whatever you’d like to think of it as. You always have access to your leader card, but your leader card can only be played once. Decks have a minimum deck size of 25 cards and a maximum of 40 (you should almost always run the minimum), not counting your leader card. Bronze cards make up the bulk of your deck and you are allowed up to 3 copies of each bronze card. Think of bronze cards as the core of your deck. There is no limit to the amount of bronze cards you can have in your deck, other than that you cannot go over your deck maximum size. You are allowed 6 silver cards in your deck and can only have 1 copy of each silver card. Silver cards are powerful, deck defining cards. Lastly, you are allowed up to 4 gold cards and like silver cards, you may have only 1 copy of each gold card in your deck. Gold cards are the signature cards of your deck, representing supremely powerful effects and abilities that often swing the game in your favor. In addition to having these powerful effects, gold units are completely immune to interaction by your opponent. If you play a gold unit, rest assured that the unit is going to impact the board and will continue to impact the board throughout the round. You should always run the maximum amount of silver and gold cards that you can fit into your deck.

When deckbuilding, you’ll want to focus on a general deck strategy and synergy amongst your cards. Because of how Gwent is played, it is nearly guaranteed that what you want your deck to do will happen during play. You don’t really have to worry about bad draws or not getting to use that one combo you put into your deck. It’s gonna happen.

The Five Factions

Nilfgaard
More than any other GWENT faction, Nilfgaard relies on diplomacy and subterfuge to disrupt enemy strategies and enact its own. The empire plants Spies behind enemy lines to perform sabotage and reveal cards in the opponent’s hand. Well-aware of power’s benefits, Nilfgaardians target the strongest enemy units, crippling them or eliminating them altogether.

Monsters
The world of The Witcher is infested with unspeakable horrors, most of which are gathered in the fearsome Monsters faction. Foul weather does not hinder these beasts—in fact, they thrive in harsh conditions. They attack in vast numbers that grow into hordes with the Breed ability, and when brute strength is needed instead, they consume their kin and absorb their strength.

Skellige
Skelligers embrace death’s glory, knowing their priestesses and medics can summon departed heroes from the Graveyard to fight another day. A Skellige player sends units to the Graveyard on purpose… only to bring them back later, stronger than ever. Skelligers also turn wounds to their favor by inciting their bloodied warriors to attack with redoubled strength.

Northern Realms
The Northern Realms seek to gain control of the battlefield by reinforcing their numbers. Their valiant commanders march in the front lines to inspire their units and boost their strength. Their troops can be immunized against attacks and weather spells through promotion to Gold status, while Medics can return fallen soldiers to fighting form.

Scoia’Tael
The Scoia’tael are supremely agile, able to outmaneuver their foes with units able to deploy to any row. As befits guerilla fighters, they often set ambushes: cards played face down which reveal themselves only when the trap has already sprung. To bolster their numbers, the Scoia'tael quickly raise new Commandos, zealous neophytes that take the opponent by surprise.

Single Player?

It's coming. CDPR has stated that they will be releasing a single player for Gwent in the near future, likely before the end of the open beta. Even better, the current rumor is that Gwent's single player will further The Witcher storyline, and could even be considered The Witcher 4. In addition to the robust storyline, you will be able to unlock new cards to use in Gwent multiplayer.

Limited? (draft, arena, etc)

Currently no such option, but there could potentially be one in the future. Gwent is pretty unique amongs card games, so this is something I don't believe CDPR is planning on exploring right now. They are currently focused on the single player aspect of Gwent and the existing game play you will find in Gwent.

my plan is just "when in doubt, pick skellige then nilfgaard"

if I have some nightmare choice between skellige cards, I'll probably go with whatever plays well in discard. I loved discard Skellige and it makes me happy to see Bran back in action.

Very much looking forward to tapping 400+ kegs in a row tomorrow.

Note for the OP: there is no cross-play between Xbox One and PS4. Microsoft has publicly stated that they are open to this generally, Sony is resistant. PC-Xbox One (obviously) and PC-PS4 cross-play are in the game.

Also for the OP, there is a combined ranked leaderboard. For closed beta, Xbox players had the option of choosing to only play ranked against other Xbox players, which naturally has a separate leaderboard. I'm assuming PS4 players will have the same option during Public Beta. You will have better competition and more players to compete with by choosing the cross-play option.

The meteorite powder is an insanely good deal for premium legendaries if you're into that. Crafting a premium legendary instead of a normal one is 800 more scraps, and dusting a whole keg ($1) gives you 50 scraps on average, meaning it costs $16 to craft a premium legendary instead of a normal. Using meteorite powder it costs $4.50! Lesson: never ever craft a premium legendary using scraps.

My bet is that they ended up spending a lot of money doing the premium art and are trying to make some of it back here.

On the PAX East panel about the art design they mention it roughly takes over 700 man-hours to make one card. You also don't get any extra scraps if you mill a premium card, so they really pushing people into collecting and playing premium cards. I can see powder being their best money flow outside of periods of new card releases.

I was so right. I've opened 45 packs and gotten zero silver cards.

Got offered a ton of golds though. I don't know if this is glitched because getting to choose legendaries (including premium menno, premium ciri dash) 5 times and epics 0 times seems crazy.

Most of it is just CB gameplay but from 3 minute mark you get a sneak peak at what the singleplayer campaign will look like, and people, this aint HS adventure poo poo. You get a 2D map where your geralt walks around, and dialog trees with NPCs, and it's in the W3 comic book style.

Edit: And the cinematic trailer, where Geralt and Ciri cap some fools that were trying to spoil their wizard poker.

I will never forget your smiles. I feel like I saved the world today. Just feeling like that is enough for me.



The challenges seem pretty dece so far. Beating up the skellige challenges using the most awful Skellige deck. Shame they don't give exp, I should probably hit up the matchmaker for for level 3 sooner rather than later so I can actually mill crap

Edit: And the cinematic trailer, where Geralt and Ciri cap some fools that were trying to spoil their wizard poker.

Expecto Patronum! Expelliarmus! Abracadabra! Argh, none of these are working.
Oh well, fall back plan.
ROOOAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRR!


So i'm in love with my favorite old deck, Skellige discard. The new Cerys is awesome, along with the Queensguard and Skalds.

Also, even though I made a deck and technically have alternatives, i'm running one of the starter gold cards, Royal Decree. It gets Cerys into play on round 1 no matter what, and I get to bring her back every turn. Cerys is basically the new Roach in Skellige, as long as you run Queensguard.

Are you running it with Operator to make a 4th queensguard?
