It's still brutal for any newbie to pick up the game though. HS has atk/def values clearly illustrated but holy hell is it a pain for me to try and learn what a new card does just from watching someone play and not explain.

I'm not sure what you mean by "do something about the keywords." The keywords have definitions that pop up when you hover over the cards, so you can learn what each card does in a few seconds the first time you see them, and that is just reinforced if you see them multiple times.

It's hella aggravating to open kegs and not understand what any of the keywords mean

Is there any word on whether the GOG version will carry over to the mystical UWP "You can play this on Xbox too!" version? I'd rather not jump on this only to have to restart in x months when the UWP version comes out.

Some of the popular streamers/youtubers must be consulting or testing some of the changes and they kind of let things slip every now and then, and one of the things they let slip seems to be a patch in less than a week and a half that is addressing a lot of things. One of them is Rag (nerf), another is Queensguard (nerf) and another is Northern Realms (buff). That's all I could really piece together from vague allusions on their videos.

It's great playing this game early, especially for ranked. Just hit level 10, placed immediately into rank 7, which is free kegs and stuff. Try and hit rank 10 as soon as you can, then go into ranked mode just so it auto-places you.

You're already rank 10 I'm still just rank 3 from getting my 6 crowns a day.

Any of you guys coming from hearthstone? Would love to hear some comparisons, thx in advance

Beyond what the guys above said about devs being better (it's true), I jumped ship during closed beta.

Advantages over HS:
-Easy landmarks each day (win 6 crowns, win 12 crowns) that I prefer over the HS quest system
-As a result of the above, you can accumulate cards faster. You can casually average 1-2 kegs a day easily.
-Each game feels more involved. I play HS on my second monitor while browsing/watching twitch
-Due to rarity restrictions, there is effectively a cap on the cost of a deck
-It genuinely plays like a different game and it's a fun change of pace for someone who's been playing HS since the beta like me

Cons over HS:
-Oh god the UI

Jesus Christ the amount of exp needed to unlock ranked mode is insane.

I know. I've been slow rolling getting 6 crowns a day and i'm still rank 6.

I'm F2P except for dropping 20$ on kegs so my collection isn't diverse enough to build a competitive ranked deck anyway because I'm unwilling to mill everything but my main deck.

I've opened 6 Wild Hunt Riders, wish I could have swapped one with you! I've noticed a weird little bug with them too - since there are actually 3 different rider cards they won't necessarily auto mill when you actually have extra copies - you can have up to 9 of the buggers before they can be milled with the mill all extra cards button.

That's not a bug though that's a feature because of the different art cards. It's kinda annoying but different art is cool

I do wish they had an option somewhere for milling the alt art cards. Have "keep 3 of one kind" or "keep 1 of each kind" and have the auto-mill mill the others. I hear they plan on allowing crafting in the deck construction screen soon so that will help a bit, but doesn't do anything for cards/factions you aren't playing.

This would be amazing

Darke GBF posted:

Think of lock as "removes any card text on this unit". It gets rid of everything but boosts and strengthens.


Unlocking a locked card resets it to normal before buffs right? If something locks my Ekimara, will it get resilience back?

Are Crones good? It feels like a trap given that decks are limited to 6 silvers. My brother has been complaining that he lacks flexibility since he has 3 crones + weather/lock mages.

Swim's Spellgaard deck is pretty incredible, probably because people don't know how to play against it yet. It's basically Spell ST but with Nilfgaard.

EDIT: A deck tracker is reaaaally useful for this deck.



All of Swim's decks on GwentDB are great. Super useful writeups, card explanations, craft orders and budget versions / replacements. http://www.gwentdb.com/members/swim/decks

I finally hit level 10 and unlocked ranked after grinding with a modified Frost/Weather hybrid.

Why does the game send you back to deck selection sometimes when it finds an opponent? I assume it's some kind of bug and not important, but maybe im missing something.

Presumably it's because it finds the opponent but then fails to connect the two of you together

Is Savage Bear supposed to stop deploy effects from going off? I just played my Wyvern into my opponent's Savage Bear and I didn't get to deal any damage to any of his units. I could understand SB killing 1 health units before they can trigger their deploy effects, but the Wyvern has 6 health.

Did the Wyvern die? It's an oversight. New patch that should be hitting Monday should fix it. All battlecries should proc before you lose the unit I believe.

Also is the Bekker Monster list you guys talking about this one?

I was going to write a longer post but honestly monsters has everything. Bronze Triss is their third best bronze card. They have their own Tibor. I guess the one thing they don't have is over the top Nilfgaard silvers.

Monsters doesn't really have the room for that anyway if you're running 3x Crones, 1x Mage.

He is still really good, especially in the current meta where people like to run units like Dol Blathana Protector, Spotter and Pirate Captain. Sometimes you can get him up to 20 strength and deny them a powerful piece of their combo.

I wonder if it's worth swapping Coral for Regis:Vamp in my Panda Bears deck to gently caress with decks that rely on bronze unit synergy

There's a trick to get around this, if you hover over a card in the graveyard menu and hold Tab the menu will hide and you can see the card on the right of the board - highlighted red if in their graveyard or blue if in your graveyard.
