  • Season of the Bear is ending!



    Season of the Bear is ending soon – it will conclude on Thursday, March 29th at 10 AM CEST! But before you board your drakkars and sally forth in the final battle, let’s take another look at the rewards you’re fighting for:



    Shortly after, the season end rewards will be distributed and the new season will follow – are you ready, dh’oine?

    Hm.. I have seen very few bears this season; slave drivers, viper witcher & elves most of the time.

      Yep.. that seem to be the meta right now. I hope they change it a little bit after the next patch.

        Yup, hope for some nerfs, most cards are too strong, it;s easier to nerf them then powerup 90% of other cards, like half of golds non usable, and many bronzes as well.

          I'll be getting the Vernon Roche avatar and I'm so happy because I missed out the last time. Temeria!
          If it's peace you desire, prepare for war.

            Well, this is quite strange. I don't know why I tried like mad to get this Vernon Roche avatar couple seasons ago (Rank 20) and now almost everyone will get him for "free". I don't consider myself "elitist" or whatever and honestly I'm not against spreading rewards between more and more players but at least CDPR should make "former" Vernon Roche avatar special/different. Otherwise it's quite unfair.

              Sure. If there isn't still a balanced patch, I'll take a break from Gwent RNG festival; the create mechanics put Gwent back to the ancient history of Closed beta.

                  I am in top 1k atm, and create is everywhere: elf scout, slave driver, rune stones. I just want to rage quit when I play weather and the opponent keep drawing mage, abaya from runestones and the removal weather guy (dont remember the name) of ST; the alchemy Calveit deck always has slave driver, runestone or black blood; the ST swam deck never exclude elven scouts; Eithne usually put runestone in deck and the special card that create unit from your faction

                    Runestones are in almost all the decks to give Vesemir another target except Mandrake.

                    Elven scouts and slave drivers provide another body for the ale and Vrihedd officers/dragoons.

                    That said, I don't think that create is the problem. The problem is its tutors have a good synergy with current archetypes.

                    I even played against Foltest swarm (at around 4100 MMR) who had Black Blood to increase the chances of getting Hubert.

                      Hey, create is not luck, it's skill. You put this awkwardly flexible card in your deck, then you say a little prayer, and when you get what you prayed for, you have just outskilled your opponent. It makes the game so much more skill based. Just like reveal for example. Who would've thought that partially RNG based mechanic that actually lets you see the hand of your opponent was a bad idea?

                      But yeah, updates come maybe every 3 - 6 months with smaller ones once between them if we're lucky. We still have all sorts of problems with just trying to get into a match. We have bugs and problems with mechanics.
                      Bronze cards with stats of overpowered silvers get released. Gold cards with questionable designs get released. While someone has to come up with all these cards, someone else should probably take the responsibility of what actually gets released, even in beta, since the updates are rare. We are just stuck with these problem cards, combos and mechanics. A card that in practice is a free 25, now a free 22, is probably not very fun to play against. Or a card that in general literally wins the round if not dealt with right there, even if it's the first card played, is probably not very good design. If you need to play at least two cards in every deck just to counter one possible gold card, there might be a slight problem somewhere.

                      And that Thronebreaker Campaign announced 8 months ago...?

                      I think about taking a break again about every time I play.

                          ST don't run Vesemir, the ST & NG runestones are used coz they are OP and almost give you a good value; slave driver not only give one extra body but also reveal the opponent's deck and destroy their strategy; it's one of the most disgusting cards atm. Only players who play them think that they are fine xD.

                            Slave driven is broken i admit. But general create mechanic is very good for game. If you use create runstones you can get a good card but also worthless 10 point card max in some situation. A bit of rng is NEEDED. You want that a game become passians when you know exactly what will happen and in waht order. There will be situation that (for example) NG beat Skellige and Skellige beat Monsters but Monsters beat NG (most of the time). A bit of rng make that every deck now can beat every other deck (most of the time and with a bit of luck).

                              IMO I don't feel Avatars and Borders should be that exclusive. I feel that Titles being difficult to obtain makes more sense, at the end of the day bragging rights comes down to MMR and leaderboards not the Avatar, Border, or Title. Also some seasons are easier to rise the ranks others aren't so I have no problem with the Avatar being given out at Rank 15. Just food for thought or fuel to your fire whichever you prefer.
