So if its cosmetics most of the players care about the grind is to 160 not 175!
Thats where you are wrong there is a title for doing all Ciri contracts, for which you need to finish 175.
Previous time many players complained that they completed the journey in 4-6 weeks and there are not enough rewards after it, there is no pleasing everyone.
Actually there is, make the 100lvl+ rewards, reward points only or throw some premium kegs in there, but don't put unique cosmetics related to the journey people paid for behind an insane grind that requires you to play several hours each day non-stop for 3 months; that is totally unreasonable and not a healthy habit to encourage your casual player base to adopt.
Two weeks in it is rather disappointing to see that the developers have zero interaction with players on their own forums, and don't see it prudent to participate in discussions about key game mechanics that some of their paying player base has serious concerns about.
Disappointing to see the whole Gwent community team MIA.
