HOMECOMING: What we know so far

The Q and A of Homecoming distilled from the Ask a Dev thread. Some questions and answers are para-phrased for the sake of readability.
(This is a work in progress.)

Gameplay (Combat)
Q: How many rows will Homecoming have?
A: Two, but rows will matter again. Thronebreaker will also be translated to the two row version of the game.

Q: How many bronze copies can you have in your deck?
A: Two, max.

Q: Can you tell, at least roughly, how many cards will be changed?
A: Approximately 80% of the cards will change. Evaluating the row change based on current card design does not give a clear view on what we're aiming for. We'll talk more about gameplay once we have the final design and hopefully that will put the pieces together.

Q: What role will tutor cards play in Homecoming?
A: There will be less tutor cards in the game. As it stands now, we got to a point where we had a tutor overdose.

Q: Will gold immunity return?
A: No.

Q: Are locks still going to exist with Homecoming?
A: Yes.

Q: Is the mulligan/card selection going to be changed?
A: Yes.

Q: Will carryover cards remain in homecoming?
A: We will limit carryover.

Q: Will weather be changed?
A: To a certain degree, but not a lot. This is still being worked on.

Q: How will the interactivity with the opponent be handled? Will he have different ways to counter our moves during our turn, or maybe will just revolve around the ambush mechanic?
A: You'll have time to counter your opponents plays in your turn, we'll also have ambushes for counter-play, you can choose when to activate some ambushes which is cool and a new addition to the game. For example let's say you have an ambush card in play, but the condition for it's activated ability has not been met, you can choose to flip the card and activate it's ability, of course this ability won't be as strong as the one which would be activated if the condition was met and the card flipped on it's own - this is an idea we're toying around with atm

Q: Is it true that minimum number of cards in a deck will be increased to 30?
A: We'll see. We are still playing with this idea.

Q: Will there be drawing cards in-between round?
A: Yes.

Q: Will there be cards that include other already made cards like silver mages (who can cast 3 spells)?
A: There will be some fixed choice cards.

Q: Will every card (faction card, not neutral) be part of some archetype or there will also be "hybrid" cards that work well in multiple decks?
A: There will be hybrid cards.

Q: Could you tell us, to what extent the card's abilities design is completed?
A: We have all factions designed and they are in the process of being tested, more info regarding game design will come. Not ready to get into specifics just yet. Biggest challenge is nailing the new look of the game.

Q: What I'm wondering is whether in Homecoming the cards and archetypes will be unique or whether there will be copy-paste design.
A: We're not aiming for copy-paste design, but for new and unique abilities.

Q: Is RNG really that big of a the problem?
A: RNG is the biggest problem. We have to remember that this is a card game and card games will always have RNG. Of course we will try to limit the amount of RNG in the design space.

Q: Will the rarity (white, blue, purple, gold) change?
A: No change here.

Q: Can we expect new mechanics and keywords that currently do not exist?
A: Yes, there are new keywords and mechanics, including more faction-specific ones.

Q: Will row limit still be a thing? You said that row limit could be canceled and you were considering "a pile" display of the same card with multiple copies on the board. Will you stick to the "pile plan"?
A: Row limit is a thing. We're thinking about piles for tokens and/or the possibility to destroy a card a replace it with a card in your hand.

Q: How will the leaders look like in Homecoming?
A: Leaders are totally different, will wait with going into their mechanics, cause it's a cool surprise, which needs visual representation.

Q: Right now Gwent combat doesn't seem smooth in terms of responsiveness to clicks. Is this on your radar?
A: Yes, it is.

Q: Will locks be getting an overhaul with Homecoming?
A: They might see a change.

Q: Will tags have roles?
A: They will, but there will be less of them.

Q: Will removal/damage be nerfed or reduced?
A: A bit less power on units and less damage done by specials.

Q: Are the rounds and how many of them remaining after Homecoming?
A: Rounds stay the same.

Q: Will Create be a specific Gold mechanic? If yes will you guys reduce the amount of Golden cards with it on top of that?
A: No, it won't.
Gameplay (Features)
Q: With the new tutorial, will the rewards be distributed for players who had already done it or will it be obligatory to play it again?
A: You'll have to replay it; we're reworking the whole tutorial.

Q: Are leader challenges going to remain with Homecoming for new players to unlock leaders or will that work differently?
A: Yes, we will have leader challenges, but done in a different way.

Q: Will arena see an overhaul or do we get new game modes?
A: Arena won't be overhauled. We're focusing mainly on delivering the game and not adding new features.

Q: Do you guys have any plans at Homecoming or at a later stage of adding a prestige system to the current level system?

Q: When you are changing whole leveling experience, can we expect that our account level progression will be restarted?
A: Players will be assigned corresponding levels in the new system.

A: It stays pretty much the same.

Q: What will happen with our ranking points when Homecoming launches?
A: You will be transferred to the new system.

Q: Will you be substituting the current "Win x matches with y faction" quests with more interesting ones?
A: Yes

Q: Do we get a new faction in Homecoming?
A: No
Gameplay (Faction Specific)
Q: What about cards that interact with the opponent's deck/graveyard and resurrects?
A: Skellige will be the faction with more graveyard interaction for sure.

Q: After Homecoming, will there be some decks like 40 NR, which has a very high upper limit, but a very low lower limit?
A: Probably not

A: Your collection will automatically be milled, giving you full scraps for normal cards and powder for premium cards. You will retain the kegs, scraps and powder you've already collected.

A: We're trying to have a standard number of cards for each faction.

Q: Can you tell us the number of unreleased cards you have already prepared?
A: I can just say a lot.

Q: Will there be a fixed limit for Gold and Silver too after HC? Will it be fixed or within a range? Like Max 4 gold, but you can go with 2 gold too and get more Silvers (for example)?
A: When building a deck you're only restricted by the deck building cost of each card.

Q: Will resource system have same values for each card rarity or it can vary among one rarity (Gold 1 cost 100, Gold 2 costs 120)?
A: Most likely based on rarity and ability.

Q: Will deck building work the same way as now?
A: It will be different with regards to deck size and the provision system.

Q: What is this "Provision system" I keep hearing about?
A: Each card has a cost, so when you build a deck it has to fit the the total cost for the deck.

Q: You said that every faction will have the same amount of cards does that mean you might add new cards or you will remove some cards so that every faction has the same amount of cards?

A: For now, we are on schedule, dates I'll share at a later time. Visuals I'm pushing for, don't want promise anything tho — sorry!

Q: The first week of August is almost over and we're dying of hunger. When can we expect rations of (video/gameplay) leeks?

A: We tried timed immunity and sometimes it worked, but we weren't too happy with it, we're still playing around with the idea.

Q: What is the design teams philosophy on factions and creating new ones - is it to separate mechanics that would be broken if in the same card pool or simply to group archetypes that have synergy together? and what will the purpose of neutral cards be, after Homecoming?
A: A bit of both actually, because you want to bring in new archetypes and also cards supporting existing archetypes. Neutral card will be more versatile after Homecoming for sure :)

Q: After Homecoming, what's more likely the new faction that's been mentioned or something smaller like Vampire expansion or new leaders for factions?
A: We'll see ;)
Q: How will the leaders look like in Homecoming?
A: Leaders are totally different, will wait with going into their mechanics, cause it's a cool surprise, which needs visual representation.
Let me guess, leaders are represented by actual 3D models that will stand against each other in the new battleground themed board? :3
I wonder what they are doing with them.
Q: What happens with your collection when Homecoming hits?
A: Your collection will automatically be milled, giving you full scraps for normal cards and powder for premium cards. You will retain the kegs, scraps and powder you've already collected.

If you're going for a full collection check your Golds before the patch hits then if you want to Prem any you have. I swear I also read from Burza that Spies will no longer be a thing, thank God.

Why does that matter? You don’t lose any scrap or powder
Why does that matter? You don’t lose any scrap or powder
My bad, should've made it more clear - It's mainly for people going for a full Premium and Standard collection. If you have two Leader cards for example, you can transmute the extra copy to get the Premium version. Seen as (for me at least) they're quite hard to come by in kegs, it might be wise to Transmute any copy's you have, if again (I should've made it clearer) your going for a full collection.

Edited the last post
For me the biggest change is actually the deckbuilding. No limit to golds and silvers, the only limit to build a deck being the cost of it in scraps seems a bit too much, and similar to Hearthstone. I don't like it too much if I am honest.

Anyway, thanks @4RM3D I guess all we can do is wait and see
I know that I am most probably in the minority, but I am quite a bit concerned that we are only 2 months (give or take) from the supposed launch date and we've been shown nothing but promises and the info we got is pasted from scraps here and there (btw thanks for that, 4RM3D). The fact that despite this being named Homecoming, the devs are again playing the "yo, we can haz a few good ideas how to change the game despite doing things in the same vein before *cough*midwinter*cough* and people didn't like it much" card is not reassuring either.
Call me paranoid, but I've got a bad feeling about this.

Without a shadow of a doubt Homecoming will be delayed. I guarantee it to you. So when we get told it’s coming in November or December don’t get disappointed. If I’m wrong and we get it in October then hey, we’re getting it “early” for all intents and purposes. If they’re already 2/3 of the way finished and can’t even show a small clip or even a screenshot, then things don’t look so good. Think how we were promised info nearly 2 months ago.
Burza said that they are currently on shedule. Also there was never said that homecoming would come in october, the only information was that they needed 6 month for homecoming.

Well yeah actually, if they tell us in April that they need six months time then obviously they’ll be releasing after they finish developing it. You think they’re going to finish developing Homecoming and then choose not to release for a few extra months? I’m pretty sure they’ll want to release it as soon as possible considering they haven’t had an update to the game in around half a year and even their most loyal players are considering leaving.
