After the recent news about smaller support for Gwent in 2023, and no official tournaments or content starting from 2024 we need to adjust our plans. We want to continue what we did until this point, but realistically with the expectations of the declining number of viewers on streams, readers of articles, and snapshots, we might need to cut some content that we do. Especially when looking into the far future. We read a lot of positive feedback from the community on Reddit, streams or Discord, that there are people interested in Gwent even when it will not have official support, and community-driven balance is enough to keep them interested in the game and community content. However those are only speculations, and we cannot be sure if those people will still be in Gwent next year, or even next month. So we want to ask everyone who values our content, can, and want to help the community team providing more content in the future to join our Patreon. This will give Us a real grasp of the players interested in Gwent still in a way that is a little more than casual gaming. We will make our plans in taken into account the number of Patreons we will have next month. We might be forced to adjust to reality.
Also as a reminder, our Patreons get early access to decks from the snapshot and our other content.
On a positive note, we recommend everyone to check our 25 days of Gwentmass event, we are in the middle of it so a lot of stuff is already available: interviews, articles, infographics, tierlists, summaries of 2022, crosswords, and so on, the full list you can find here.
Meta snapshot #32
[26.11] Release: 8 new decks, new ranking, new videos, new matchups & gameplan info.
Outside our windows, many of us can only see depressing rainfall or maybe even snow. On these gloomy evenings, it would be best to get yourself a cup of hot tea (maybe make it Irish), cover yourself with a blanket and spend a few hours with your favorite card game.
While preparing the list, we noticed that this season is exceptionally rich in devoted archetypes.
With the approaching winter, a wild hunt runs across the board, led by Auberon and Caranthir. After the nerfs on Nilfgaardian soldiers, the devo monsters gained another good match-up.
Skellige warriors can ward off the cold from the outside, thanks to their thick fur.
With the changes on Arnjolf, the strong finisher champion’s charge came back in the vogue.
The heat can also be given by the glowing coins.
In the Syndicate, the well-deserved top place was won by Sigi, Junior and King of Beggars. The ability to play Tunnel Drill along with Collusion pays off with a deadly pace and control option.
After the nerf on Yrden, which was the biggest surprise of the last patch, the decks of Renfri NG and KP Knights can easily dominate duels and come out with a winning hand.
There were also nerfs in Scoia’tael, where controlling Harmony gave way to loyal Symbiosis. Dryads effectively created a fast pace from the beginning of the match, which can make the opponent’s heart beat faster.
There is nothing left for you but to brew the hot tea, sit back comfortably in the armchair, choose one of our proposals and enjoy the evening.
See you in the ranked matches!
