Considering it's effectively random feels like a shaft to anyone who has been signed up for awhile.

Plus, if you can't criticise, what's the point of a beta?

I agree.

To more feedback that is given to the dev, the better.

I think the whole play area is more small.

The cards are hard to read.

The art direction looks like it is a step back with The Witcher III Gwent subgame.

Yeah this is legitimately hilarious. Whenever you use something like Scorch or pass the turn the controller has the fiercest vibration I've ever felt.

I've played the tutorials and 2 games online and like it so far except that I dislike how nearly every card buffs or debuffs one or more units, it feels like it makes it pretty unpredictable what your opponent's strength will end at.

It is, there is an option to turn cross play off and the game even tells you about it the first time you go to play online.

This game is great. Been on a winning streak with an Monsters/Eredin deck.

So far this doesn't seem as tied to RNG as other card games which is nice. There still is that aspect, just not so frequently.

Edit:

At certain points in the game, aren't you betting on that? If my opponent has 2 cards left, I want to determine whether he is going to try to take the round or play defensively. That could even impact if I decide to pass when I'm well ahead.

Got an invite, played through the tutorials, opened some packs and built a Monsters deck. Have won 4/5 matches so far, and I only played a game or two in my time so far in TW3. Is Gwent any where near as deep as Hearthstone?

This is basically a new game so know one can really say how deep it is. It's still being balanced as well

The small changes from the witcher 3 version keep throwing me off. Like horn not being a 'buff' but just being a one time use. Also ran into what I assume was a bug where I rezzed a unit of mine and it went to the other side like a spy. Lost me that game :/

I still don't like that pass means pass until end of the round. I know that it is there as strategic move but still.

That's part of the core design of the game. The fact you can't pass your turn and always have to play a card, but you can pass the round, giving it up or hoping it will give you a strategic advantage.

Yeah I've been having some moments like that as well. Minions that get buffed seem to reset after a weather effect if you clear it too.

If you use Clear Skies to remove weather effect it will "return all affected units to their base strength."

I've been following the changes in the new Gwent version, but maybe one of the surprises for me is the amount of cards with the new wounding mechanic. It isn't just a few.

This might sound dumb, but if you have XBL Gold, can you play the beta online. I only have Silver and I think all my games have been against CPU players.

Curious, have you played Gwent or just not interested in card games at all? Seems funny to me when people literally sign up for every beta on earth with no idea if they care about the game or not :P

Either way, I'd recommend trying it if you're not giving your key away. Gwent in TW3 was amazing fun, and this is a lot more complex, if not a bit buggy atm. The bluff game is strong.
