Is there some place I can check if the servers are up? I tried logging in since yesterday but it was only a couple times so I figured it might be on their end.

I didn't have any issues at all with logging in since open beta starter, it might be on your end.

Any idea on when the first round of changes is going to happen? I am loathe to spend valuable scraps on soon to be nerfed cards!

They've said they'll have a system in place to refund people that crafted nerfed cards anyway.

I expected the Morkvarg deck to get hit somehow, but maybe they'll reveal something later.

I lost 3 matches today due to cards in my hand being invisible and unplayable, what a great day.

I don't know how casual MMR is calculated but every time I queue up lately I get an opponent who is top 100 on the global ladder, and they all play tier 1 decks. Am I going to have to make a new account if I just want to mess around a bit with fun decks.

Yeah, I'm not trying to affect the gold card, but copy it's value. Sometimes that works, like Cynthia can boost her own value by the value of a gold card. I kind of assumed it wouldn't work though.

Cynthia does read (including golds), I don't know if there's any exception that doesn't have this.

I thought they made weather garbage, Goodharpy even lost another point - why is it winning everything?

"Ally" means units on the board so it should work with basically anything, not just hand/deck buffs.

They're planning to add some sort of new ladder system for everyone who ends this season above 4.2k mmr.

I think it's supposed to nerf self-locking as much as it buffs opponent-locking. And to kill Kambi truly for real this time.

It only damages enemies though.

They'll be able to do a lot more interesting things with golds now that they're no longer immune. Good change, much like getting rid of faction passives was good.

Igni isn't nearly as oppressive as some people make it out to be and isn't even run in the most popular decks at very high MMR.

Reveal isn't held back by scorch effects, it's held back by being a worse version of discard.

I got up to like 4400 but then started loving around and trying weird stuff, ended the season like 4050, do I get access to the pro ladder?

Yeah if you were at 4400 you'd be rank 20 which is enough.

I can't believe I haven't been able to make it to rank 20 after 3 seasons! I'm just never able to clear the hurdle with my best decks! No matter what deck I play or how I play it. So frustrating! I guess I should try a consume deck?

Just play dwarves.

3 points off CN is a big nerf and Paulie is an incredible card that should have been hit hard instead of balancing every other dwarf card around him.

As far as I know it's always been cross-platform between PC and Xbox/PS4 but not between the consoles themselves.

Whenever I play casual I get matched up against even bigger tryhards playing perfect netdecks. There doesn't seem to be any reason at all to ever play that mode besides not having access to ranked yet.

The design of the new Roche card is extremely bad. It simply existing will probably make ambush cards unplayable even if no one is actually going to put it in their decks.

Most of the new cards are too horrible to even see play in arena.

Estraysian
Dec 29, 2008


If you don't have consume techs it's often basically impossible to beat consume. Luckily consume will never be very popular on the ladder because then everyone techs against it and it'll never win.

Roluth posted:

So, card advantage is everything? Even so, I'm not sure why the 13-strength spy cards are played so often. They seem pretty good for sifting, but a 13-point swing against you seems pretty big. What's the reason for this? (EDIT: Well, other than the specific case you stated.)

Play a CA spy in a round you don't intend to win and the 13 points don't matter at all. Card advantage is basically everything in Gwent and proper use of spies and round/coin flip manipulation is almost required to win at a high level.

It should be on the social panel under your quests. Try restarting if it's not there or not updating.
