Anybody Else Playing The Gwent Beta?

14 posts in this topic

I'm playing the witcher 3 right now, and I got super addicted to gwent. I have four more cards to get to complete the collection, I'm just fast travelling around searching for more fools to beat. I'd definitely be down for a stand alone game. Is it still possible to get in the beta?

Not sure... I got accepted into the Beta about a week or two ago but I just started playing it today. Not sure how long the Beta is gonna be going either. Here's the website.

I've been pretty deep into it since the beta started. But since Northern Realms is garbage this patch I've scaled back a lot over the past couple of weeks.

Monster and Skellige are on top right now, Scoi'atel has some decent decks, Nilfgaard and Northern Realms are kind of in the shitter. Northern Realms lacks any sort of big-power combos outside of Henselt + Margarita (which is not reliable), and every other faction has better tools to keep power on the board over multiple turns.

 

There's been a lot of talk about the next patch and some of the changes have been revealed, but while they intend to have a lot strength buffs to many units, it doesn't seem like they're really addressing the low combo potential very much.

I play Hearthstone, Elder Scrolls Legends, and Eternal at the moment.

 

I am in beta and tried Gwent, it is not super appealing to me, it seems more like solitaire then you are playing someone.

 

From the little reading i have done it seems like a big money sink. Not that i am opposed to spending money, but i currently have 3 card games i do spend money on.

Thanks! I have been trying to get into the beta since I first heard about it becoming it's own game. I loved playing Gwent in the Witcher 3. Went all around collecting all the cards. 

 

I just finished the tutorial and built a deck and I must say this game is amazingly polished. They definitely took a good look at what makes Hearthstone so appealing. I was very disappointed how Magic the Gathering lacked personality and charm compared to Hearthstone and it seems Gwent learned from that. With this and Un'Goro coming out I'm gonna spend some serious money on card games lol. 

 

When building my first deck I'm starting with the Skellige deck as I loved that part of the game in the Witcher 3. I think I mostly played Scoia'tael previously in the Witcher 3. I can see myself playing multiple decks in this game.
