Nilfgaard vs Northern Realms Faction Challenge

A new faction challenge has begun today, this time between Nilfgaard and Northern Realms. Check out the details and rewards below:

They've changed things up a bit again, with an updated "faction keg week" following the event. This time, you will get a guaranteed premium card from the losing faction in the first 4 cards and a pick between 3 cards from the winning faction as the fifth. It's unclear from the description if that will be premium as well.

The event runs until Tuesday, June 26th, 12 PM (noon) CEST.

Quote from CD Projekt Red

The battle is about to begin. On one side: proud forces of Northern Realms. On the other: powerful Nilfgaardian Empire. Who will emerge victorious? Choose your side!

Throughout a week of intense skirmishes, the most loyal supporters of both factions will be rewarded with these spoils of war:

In addition to the rewards listed above, we’ll be launching another Faction Keg Week. This time, all three cards in the “Choose 1 out of 3” part of the keg opening will belong to the winning faction, and there will be a guaranteed premium card from the losing faction in the initial choice of 4 cards. The event will last from Wednesday, June 27th, 12 PM (noon) CEST till Monday, July 2nd, 12 PM (noon) CEST, and will affect all players, regardless of whether they participated in the Faction Challenge or not.

Faction Challenge will end on Tuesday, June 26th, 12 PM (noon) CEST.
