Indeed, I believe Gwent from Witcher 3 is meant to be played with your friends casually, simply for fun. The game is balanced for a single player experience, it could never be a competitive card game.Gwent in the CE and limited editions was never meant to be used in competitive play - it is a collectors item. There are a number of problems we would have to address to be have a shot at tournament rules - we are focusing at making Gwent stand alone a good competitive game
No plans - we are doing our best to make Gwent work in the digital space - even considering physical from the get go gives you constrains we don't wantThen, the follow up question would be: is there any plan or wish from CD Projekt to release real gwent decks with the new graphics and ruleset in the future? Thanks.
