This weekend, we’re moving onto the second and final part of the Mid-Season Tournament – the Play-Off Stage! Join us at twitch.tv/cdprojektred on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 4 PM CEST on both days.

In the Group Stage, we saw 16 players battling it out for 8 spots in the Playoffs – in case you missed the games, check out our short summary below:

Group A was won by holdyr who advanced to the Playoffs via the winners bracket after defeating Mya-mon369ex 3:2 and PSYCHOKID777 3:1. Mya-mon369ex redeemed himself later in the losers bracket, eliminating first 优柔寡断的司徒空 3:2 and then PSYCHOKID777 3:0 in the tiebreaker.

In Group B, it was Kaneki_Yamori who triumphed in the winners bracket after a 3:1 match with DG_gameip and 3:2 with kams134. After the initial 3:1 loss to Kams134, Lerio_2 moved on to the losers bracket where he won 3:0 against DG_gameip and then claimed his revenge against kams134 with another clean sweep.

Group C was dominated by Puzzle.Express, who won against magpie131 3:1 and kerpeten96 3:0. Kerpeten96 was the second player to advance from that group, after beating Liu_m in a tiebreaker for the second time, 3:1.

In Group D, Danirai came in first after winning against one of the favourites – TLG_Pajabol 3:1, and then Spellingbee, also 3:1. The last player to advance was decided in the tiebreaker match between Spellingbee and TLG_Pajabol, which ended in a 3:1 victory for Spellingbee.

And now these 8 brilliant players will play for a share of the prize pool and, of course, a spot in the GWENT World Masters tournament. Who will be able to claim the victory?



And let’s not forget about our wonderful broadcast team who is also joining us for the weekend:



Ready for some GWENT action? See you soon on the Twitch chat!
 


The Mid-Season Tournament begins this weekend with the Group Stage! This is where 16 players will battle it out in the Dual Tournament (also commonly known as GSL) format. All players have been randomly seeded into 4 groups:

Next, through a double elimination, the top 2 players from each group will qualify to the Play-offs:



These 8 players will be invited to participate in the Mid-Season Tournament Play-off Stage – broadcasted live on our official channel on July 1st-2nd!

Its prize pool is set to be 20 000 USD + 50% of the proceeds from sales of special esports bundles available in the shop. 2 000 USD out of the sum will be distributed among the 8 players who made it to the Group Stage, but failed to advance to the Play-offs. In addition to the monetary prize, the winner of the Mid-Season tournament will automatically reserve a spot in World Masters at the end of the year.

Group Stage matches will be casted live by your favourite streamers: pawloex, Moshcraft, Lemon, Ceely, TheaBeasty, PiotrCNS, Rykov, Bomblin, Mercernn, lionhart, GhostArya, Interloper, Elquellora, and Gravesh. Check the schedule below!

Hey everyone!

While the first card-drop of 2023 is only one more month away, we are introducing some keychanges with Update 11.3, specifically to Draft and bandits like Gascon!

Before jumping into the update, make sure to check out our Developer Update for more thoughts on the changes.

Changes

Draft Mode: GWENTFINITY update - Introducing several key changes to future-proof Draft Mode, and make the experience more distinct overall:

-The drafting process has been changed. After drafting the leader ability, players draft packages of three cards, eight times, and then draft their stratagem. Players will receive the option to add, and then remove a single package after each match.

-The packages are no longer manually built, but randomly generated from the ownable card pool. Each package is assigned a faction faction, and has a total provision cost ranging from 20 to 26.

-The in-game timer has been reduced from the usual 60 seconds to 25 seconds.

These changes aim at making Draft a more varied environment and to future-proof the game mode in the context of GWENTFINITY. The change of the turn timer also aims at making matches quicker, further differentiating Draft mode from standard matches. For more info, tune in to the developer's video!
