I hate to be negative about a game I really like, but for me the black sun expansion is significantly reducing my enjoyment of Gwent.
If you like decent balance and skill expression, this game is playable 3/4 months out of 12. Remaining time is just a chore dealing with completely broken and unsustainable stuff.Obviously have to add to the general chorus of disapproval - yes, this has been a really bad card drop. Several OP cards, Renfri is the worst card in some time (since original Viy?), double scenario decks are an abomination, etc. Made it to rank 2 but now given up on this month and hoping against hope for a drastic patch next month. I know it's naive of me!
Since mass OP Neutral card drops (GN, Renfri) deck diversity died (no wonder why).
I stopped playing since GN drop and still don’t want to return
I think its only you.Is it just me? I am finding Renfro far from the most dangerous of the new cards. Chapter 2 of most scenarios is just insane. Sir Scratch-A-Lot is borderline broken. In no way (at current bronze power level) is Deranged Corsair balanced. An unanswered Treasure Huntress is more dangerous than Renfri — and two Huntresses are available. Other new cards are also very good and may have uses I have not yet considered.
While it is very possible to make a good deck with 25 units, I think that the lack of flexibility in such decks will eventually push Renfri into the background. Yes, she plays for ridiculous points, but her synergies are very limited and her deck-building requirement often limits the potential of other cards.
Sir scratch is a Gold cardWhy not make Sir-Scratch-O-Lot a gold card and up its provision cost accordingly (or set its power to 1 and make it a potential easy snipe, although this could still not fix the problem for anyone who doesn't have a substantial amount of damage cards). Maybe change Imperial Practitioner to only effect special and unit cards (as far as I know scenarios don't count as special, given that they do not spawn the cow carcass for blightmaker). And jack up Renfri's provision cost to something utterly ridiculous to the point where having Renfri in your deck makes your deck a Renfri deck, rather than just an I-WIN button anyone can press. Simple fixes to some of the most broken stuff I've seen. I had a positive win-loss ratio before this patch came out, and now I'm sitting here on over double the losses of wins. In the vast majority of cases it's been because of one of those 3 cards (or combos in the case of the Eternal Eclipse+Imperial Practitioner spams), rather than being outplayed or outsmarted. It's tiring to play Gwent in its current form. These cards will all still be insanely good with these changes, but at least it won't feel hopeless to play against them.
I think he meant legendary as opposed to epic — although that won’t change how it is played.Sir scratch is a Gold card
I wasn’t meaning to say Treasure Hunters was a better (or more OP) card than Renfri. What I intended to say was that I fear Treasure Hunter decks more than Renfri decks because they tend to be balanced and consistent rather than one-shot wonders. Unless appropriately countered, good Treasure Hunters decks will easily out perform Renfri — and, I think, any other deck that does not use one of the new, super-powered cards.I think its only you.
OK. We indeed have Sir scratch a lot, wich is a broken card too.
Treasure huntress more dangerous than renfri? What?
Well i am doing something really wrong here. In The Last few days i only player hidden cache, problably more than 50 games, made more than 10 diferent decks to try to make it works and i can easily say you are wrong.
Yes, Treasure Hunters can be very good, specially if you manage to have a good carryover in coins, but they arent so broken as you said (or better than renfri).
You need to spend 3 coins to get 1 in The end of The turn, so you need 3 turns to gain your 3 coins back. Ok ok, you can combo with townfolks or bincy, but Even that its not broken, only good.
Also The cards NEEDS other cards (townfolks, bincy) or its extremly low tempo, unless, as i said, you managed to get carryover (but also if you stack all your coins in one unit that unit Will be Block or killed).
One more time, i problably played more than 50 games (maybe 100) to know what i am saying.
Hahah so problably you didnt faced me, because I dont think i am a so good player kkk.I think he meant legendary as opposed to epic — although that won’t change how it is played.

Of course, my perception could be skewed because I’ve only seen Treasure Hunters in the hands of good players; that is not true of Renfri.
