For better or worse the Gwent community is going full meme during this wait for Homecoming.

There's a six month wait until the new version comes out, heard it was because they changed project lead. I recommend going to reddit and twitch and doomsaying about two rows killing the game forever.

Is that in the same game? Or completely new? What the gently caress happened it was really off to a strong start.

Yeah, it is a large scale overhaul / update that should change core mechanics or something like that. A lot of people really hated on the midwinter update (if you weren't around, it added the keyword create, which functions like hearthstone's discover) and there was a ton of complaining about that and other things with it.

If you consider releasing a balance patch, a hotfix, and the coolest faction battle prize they've done so far as essentially abandoning the game, sure.

I mean yeah, I get that the announcement of the revamp has left some things up in the air, but all of y'all act like they shut down the servers the instant they announced Homecoming.

Oh, as rydiafan says, the game is there, fine, and functional! There won't be a lot of updates for awhile, but with the nerfs to some of the more egregious cards, gwent is still playable and all. I don't know what the latest boogeyman deck is, though...

There's no planned changes until october. I still play the game but "abandoned" is totally a fair description. If a card is op or obnoxious now, like Restore or Assire + dead spies, nobody in a position to change it can be expected to care.

It's also not clear at all just how different the game will be in october. I think two rows is only the very beginning, I give a 30% chance of face being added to the game.

The game isnt bad by any means right now though. Alchemy and greatswords seem the strongest but if you have some plan to beat them, even a dumb one that relies upon drawing specific cards, you can enjoy yourself.
