I think you may be right.Not that I really want to be CDPR advocate here (I am one of those disgruntled Beta players), but this game was put on ice for 6+ months last year. I can only imagine they were working on some of this for some time and are now throwing all the ideas out in sort of a rapid fashion, disregarding the balance of the existing cards, but trying to shake the stalling of the game (because of badly designed cards).
What can I tell you - get used to it around here.That would annoy me greatly.
Yeah, I know what you mean. Last days I am having fun with Usurper in Seasonal. Pity if you missed last Season' Seasonal - it was actually pretty fun. This one is OK but it can get really frustrating with the amount of removal.... Also a disgruntled Beta player. I'm giving HC a good go and trying very hard to like it, but it's some way off yet.
Seasonal mode is the only reason I'm still playing, to be honest. It at least allows a little extra creativity. Agree that this month's specials fiesta isn't particularly enthralling though. Last month's bleed/vitality was fun. I actually found the Elves seasonal most fun of all. Trying to construct your deck so that you could control which matching provision cards you pulled added an extra part to the puzzle. Just a shame that Assimilate was a bit overbearing.Yeah, I know what you mean. Last days I am having fun with Usurper in Seasonal.

So I was right; Instead of Dijkstra we get an unknown generic character. That's a shame.That's Gudrun Bjornsdottir, leader of the Tidecloaks, a gang which harasses the Novigrad harbours.
A new character, let's say. Whether she's generic or not is yet to be seen.Instead of Dijkstra we get an unknown generic character.
I'm intrigued. What particular aspects of his personality make him so popular as a projected leader?I'm annoyed by the lack of Dijkstra.
He also appears in the background story, doing exactly the same flipping a coin. There he is the one forging the alliance between the 5 groups.Also intrigued by the mystery narrator character who flips the coin. The voice was unfamiliar so I can't even begin to guess who it might be. June 28th is only a week away, though.
He is also the only member of the Big Four not included in the trailer.The most likely candidate would be Dijkstra, which fits into the timeline and his character.
From the way the figure was described in the story, I doubt that is a dwarf or a halfling as those would be too small.Maybe it's Vimme Vivaldi; he certainly has coins to flip, and influence in the city. Not to mention he plays gwent in Witcher 3. Hehe. The voice didn't sound anything like him, though.

It may be worth noting that there were no Skelligian pirates -- nor female ones, at that -- operating in Novigrad when Geralt encountered Dijkstra there in Witcher III; so, in that regard she and her gang are unique. Skelligians tend to prefer operating offshore, rather than in a city.

Personally, I always thought him a bit of a pompous, condescending, windbag -- who made rather poor estimates of people -- regardless of how many times his genius as a spy, diplomat, and administrator were extolled by others.
