      All platforms are equal, but some of them are more equal than others.

        Are PC, Xbox, and PS4 all in the same player pool ? Do PC mods like Gwent/up,tracker give any advantage over a console opponent? If so, what's a solution ?

          All players are in the same pool and the only advantage trackers give is showing which cards have been played, which does make things easier, but it isn't breaking the game. (Besides having statistics for winrate and stuff.)

            Having a deck tracker is a pretty huge advantage vs not having one. Probably to the point where it should really be a feature of the game. It'd kinda be like if half of the pieces in chess were invisible so you had to remember all their locations, but you had the option of wearing special glasses so you didn't have to remember where those invisible pieces were.

              Yes you can. You just can't look natively. PC has external trackers that allow you to look.

                The speed is the advantage. Also, deck/graveyard trackers allow you to view what has/hasn't been played without your opponent knowing.

                If you use the in-game graveyard, your opponent knows that you are hovering over a GY.

                So yes, trackers do things that you can't achieve within the game itself.

                  I play on both console and pc and if your a good player the advantages pc players get with gwent tracker and or gwent up isn't as bad as people say it is. But on the other hand the trackers are nice and they give you the ability to focus more on the game itself and less on how much you are losing/winning by, or what cards are still in your deck, or what cards your opponent has played, or what the base strength is of a buffed/damaged card is, or your winrates of specific decks, or....wait....that kinda is a big advantage.

                    A tracker is only an externalization for the memorizing skill. As regard gaming ethics, this is considered cheating (for instance online poker sites are banning users of such applications).

                    Any CG is having some rewards in the end, even if only of virtual nature. Take Gwent. To reach them season or rank rewards, one has to play a lots of games while the attributes defining the mood, and implicitly memorizing, are changing based on surrounding environment and based on biorhythm. Sometimes is easy to keep track some times there is lot of distraction. Is like in sports, good days, bad days. But this is part of any competition.

                    A player whom uses a tracker will better avoid the negative influence given by these bad days when memorizing skill is not running at full capacity.

                    My conclusion: on long term they will be advantaged. So OP is right, console users are disadvantaged in comparison with PC users.

                      I want to put a stop to all the talk of pc players with decktrackers having an advantage. I play real TCG's its called write that shit down on paper with a pencil. You can look in discard piles at any time too.
