Your opinion is just as valid as mine. The question now becomes player base. Given the Gwent uninstalled club, poor throne breaker sales, and general dissatisfaction among Witcher 3 vets, the size of the player base is a concern. If it does not grow then Gwent will continue to be a financial disappointment for CDPR and will eventually likely end the game/sport. Only time will tell.
Having 2 cards instead of 3 makes balancing Engines more viable - and its not as oppressive as it was.
Two rows give more incentive to Movement and Row based synergies - which is deeper than it looks.
Drawing unlimited cards was a pain which messed up balance which is beautifully done now.
GWENT has a much better base than what it was in Beta and it can only get better now.
