And another thing... CDPR is a very generous company (in the age of loot boxes) that rewards people who have supported the game from the beginning. I have almost every card in the game and never paid a cent for any of them. I have enjoyed countless of hours of entertainment and really still enjoy the game... so the least I could do is say Thanks!
well, yeah, with my playtime i also was never forced to pay for any card, i actually would have spare scraps for about 4000 barrels if needed.And another thing...

Was here since the early beta and gave up the game after HC. Now i just log here every 3 months to see if the game is still alive.
I'm still mad about what CDPR did and i dont intent to ever come back to this shadow of what Gwent was. #notmygwent
Given the incredibly good press CDPR (mostly deserved), the massive fuckup that beta gwent was, it is unbelievable that nothing really transpired to the press. It was a scandal really and proof that even the posterchild of the games industry can fuckup like the rest.
Couldnt have said better myself.
Played since the beginning of closed beta. Old players probably will remember me. For me Closed Beta Gwent/Open beta (before they screwed up) was a masterpiece of a CCG. Probably the best i ever played and ever will play.
The only one that comes near is Dominium (yes, the physical table top one), but even so, gwent was a masterpiece.
Its really sad what happened.
I dont even consider what is left gwent anymore.
I have my precious 'Pioneer' title and 2600+ hours in the game. I've never stopped playing the game even through the long wait for Homecoming and the seemingly knee-jerk nerf/buffs to cards since. I have kept playing because I just love the game. Beta was very different to the game we have now and to be honest I prefer the game now - yes, there's a much larger element of randomness now due to the lack of tutor cards but it feels to me that there is a much larger pool of decks that are viable.
For those who didn't experience beta here's a Beta game between me and McBeard (the game now really is unrecognisable from beta):.
The visuals are massively different, the cards all do different things, card values are different, leader powers are different...I could go on but Gwent now is a completely different beast than it was before. I still love it though and, while the dev team may make mistakes, they seem sincere in trying to be open and in making the game better and I remain confident that the game will indeed keep getting better. I don't see myself not playing it any time soon.
I played from the beta..... in the console. I quit the game months ago but when I knew that the console accounts need to be transferred to a PC one, I installed th game in my new PC and I can´t stop playing now...
I came back after a year, second time after 6 months.
Having total of +1000hrs played, I`m not really a pro.
But I miss the Beta, it was prettier, for example it had 3xcopies of bronzes, that made animated trios - it was really cool. (like couple of NR infantry units: PFI, blue stripes, etc)
