    The first big update to Gwent Homecoming has just been released with a ton of balance changes, bug fixes and quality of life improvements. Additionally the UWP (Windows Store) version of Gwent is being retired. Players with a Microsoft account can request a one-time account transfer here.

    Quote from CD Projekt Red

    A new update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available on PC! This update signifies GWENT’s official release on consoles coming later today (you can find the overview of changes specific to the Homecoming Update here) and introduces multiple balance changes in addition to bug fixes for all platforms.

    With the December 2018 Update, we’re focusing on fixing game balance issues, squashing bugs and introducing a few “quality-of-life” improvements on the UI side. Notable changes include updated abilities for Xavier Lemmens and Wolfsbane as well as balance changes for the Leader abilities of Morvran Voorhis and Eithné. We believe that these changes will lead to a more diverse meta and lessen the number of “auto-include” cards for certain decks.

    The following cards will have increased milling value for 3 days following the release of the patch (more on this below):

    • Vesemir
    • Lambert
    • Eskel
    • Thunderbolt 
    • Drummond Queensguard

  • published the article Update to Artifact Provision Cost

    Quote from CD Projekt Red

    We’ve just released an update which changes the provision costs for some cards, mostly Artifacts. You’ll find a list of cards which received the change below. These cards will have full mill value (scraps only) until November 12th, 2018 10:00AM CET.

    Based on statistics, Artifacts have been been too dominant in the current meta, specifically Sihil, Mastercrafted Spear and Thunderbolt Potion. This popularity of Artifacts caused players to include Artifact removal in their decks. The problem with that was there were simply too many Artifacts, and not enough possible Artifact removals to make a truly feasible deck. It was never the intention to enable decks based solely on Artifacts.

    After weighing all pros and cons, our design team decided to raise the provision cost on Artifacts cards to decrease their number in decks. Also, cards like Zoltan: Scoundrel and Golden Froth have received higher provision costs. These cards together gave very high row buffs on stacked rows and could be a potential issue later on as the metagame develops.

    Here are the provision cost changes:

    Sihil 12->15
    Tainted Ale 8->9
    Summoning Circle 7->8
    Black Blood 7->8
    Ale of Ancestors 10->12
    Thunderbolt 7->8
    Mastercrafted Spear 5->7
    Wyvern Scale Shield 5->7
    Petri’s Philter 5->7
    Pitfall Trap 7->8
    Golden Froth 9->13
    Zoltan: Scoundrel 12->15

    Note: You won’t have to download an update, changes are done on the server side.

    This is just the first step and a small hotfix for the most pressing issues. We plan to release an update in December focusing on further balancing the game, as well as bugfixing.

    Dear community,

    When Gwent was announced at E3 back in 2016 we had already been working on GwentDB in secret for a while. We were excited to be able to launch the site immediately so the community could gather to find news about the game and start theorycrafting their own decks right away, even with the limited amount of revealed cards.

    In the past two and a half years, Gwent has had a closed beta, a year and a half long public beta, and now a complete redesign of the game marking its full release. While we're very excited about Gwent Homecoming, we simply don't have the resources to update the site's tools to reflect all the upcoming changes.

    Because of this, GwentDB will currently not be able to offer a database of cards, deck builder and popular decklists for the new version of the game.

    The news section and forums will remain online, and we'll continue to provide you with the latest Gwent updates.

    Thank you for using GwentDB to share your decks these past two and a half years.

    Northern Realms are bustling with things to do. Your journey will be full of difficult choices that will influence it and whatever you decide, you will have to live with the consequences — desertion, betrayal, or even death
