Didn't have much time to play today, but I tried out a practice match just to see and I'm really impressed by firstly the updated look, and secondly, but how slick and fast it now is. The turn change is quick, card placements feel snappy... it feels really good.

They've changed the abilities around a bit, so I'm going to have to suss out my decks. Will put in some time over the weekend.

It says right after that, that they are prepping out another wave of keys soon.

No spoilers from their claims so far. Characters are cards so you'll glean some info but I haven't seen anything at all that is an explicit spoiler.

Did your code just come in or from yesterday?

Got it just after midnight, 00:08 October 26th. (GMT+3, 16:30 right now).

Thanks!

FWIW I'd registered the day after registration opened IIRC.

Looks like Gwent is a Play Anywhere title so Xbone and PC are crossplay. I wonder where this leaves PS4.

That Xbone and PC are crosspaly has been known for a long time. PS4 will probably be alone in their ecosystem.

The 'Deathrattle' ability (not sure the Gwent name) continues to be very good when used strategically.

Prize Winning Cow

When removed: Spawn 1 Chort unit.

Removal can be due to damage (strength reduction), but will also occur at the end of the round. So you could start turn 2 with:

Chort


I'm no CCG/TCG pro, but this card (and others like it) seems pretty decent. I've been using this with an Eredin/Monsters deck.

Something to keep in mind is your monster deck ability where one card randomly stays on the field. It can choose the cow which means you could be stuck with it and no Chort.

Edit: Also, I am always looking for a PC code if anyone wants to help me out.

The Closed Beta is expected to end sometime in the spring of 2017.

They might have it in open beta before it goes to version 1.0

From what I understand it'll be F2P with paid expansions and card packs so basically Hearthstone

This game is fun. I barely touched Gwent in Witcher 3, so I have no frame of reference, but the design is very solid. So many decisions to make and risks to take.

After several disastrous plays, I understand how Scorch works, so that's good. I like the way gold cards work, too, since that curbs the pay to win tendency in these kinds of games.

Yea I've had that happen, but it ended up winning me the game in round 3. That deck ability has potential to piss people off with the RNG aspect of it. I've also had it select a Chort to keep at the end of round 2. The 'deathrattle' strat is by no means a guaranteed win, lmao.

Problem with Hearthstone is that model is pretty unappealing to new players IMO. I wouldn't start playing HS now because it's an expensive mountain to climb (if you intend to be competitive), even with the 'Standard' play mode. I've kept playing since pre-beta, but if I missed a few xpacs, I doubt I'd return.

But you're right, the model seems to be working quite well for Blizzard, and I don't hear too much complaining about that aspect of the game.

It's death wish in this game if memory serves. It's actually easy to counter with scorch :P

So, I've played a few matches and mostly lost. Is it me or is the game tuned to pretty much force you to buy decks and cards to be competitive? I don't think I've gotten a single new card after the tutorial.

Haven't had a single game where the opponent didn't gg, granted they were good games but if you get free stuff for it why not.
