Edit For what NR need aristocrat tag? For NG asimilation? you want destroy this game totaly? WHERE ARE NERFS NERFS NERFS for NG? Half of the NG cards need nerfs - over half of this cards need to have proviosion 15 or more with this new tactic this game will become unplayable, or at least give us possibility to ban fraction on matchmaking.

Fine change to Equinox, though it makes the Protector a bad card again. (Warlord is fine though, of course, gets an vfx instead of a nerf, lmao)

Don't mind the Spring change, either, even though it's also a nerf. Makes playing traps a bit more interesting. Will see if the new support will also make them viable enough to offset this.

Iorveth Gambit suddenly feels like a 12p card. Going to be interesting trying to fit all of the new trap-related cards into a deck.

Edit
For every person that will write such things there will be a one buff for NG in the final patch before gwentfinity.

Nice, new cards! I'll stop my comment here, cause i cannot find anything positive to remark about this garbage patch and giving certain cards Aristocrat tag is just showing that you love Nilfgaard a lot. Why not give Crone tag to all Crones? Why just the Aristocrat tag? Explain me this! Biased NG devs?

Hahaha, it is funny and possibly true.

No changes.
Completely understandable /s
 
Why not changing also Artaud Terranova at this point?

Provision cost changed from 13 to 9.
Powert changed from 4 to 8.
Ability changed to
Deploy: Spawn and Play a copy of all the non-Disloyal units you gave Spying to during this game, excluding self.

Hey Devs, please make this change before the end of the year. Nilfgaard needs to be improved, it's too weak as it stands, and nobody is using this faction.

Edit
Seems pretty likely that when the NR reveals are made there will be a new archetype involving the Aristocrat tag. If not, in the near future. That's the way it usually goes.

C'mon guys, what were you expecting?
They forgot about the game about a year go, or maybe two years.
Why would anyone expect anything good now?
Of course! especially if you are about to release the last components for a game, you do your best effort to leave the game in its best state possible.
But NG, SK, and NR are dominating the meta.... Might is a condition that is easy to cancel, MO is always prone to have this absurd setup requirement Insect spawn, Aquelarre, Might, Frost, Beelding, Too many points slam R3 Units....

In contrast, NG requires little to zero setups to Steal card, Cancel effects, and interrupt opponent tempo.
 
Please keep your posts civilized and constructive. Even when criticising or disagreeing. Few posts deleted and few edited.
 
Nilfgaard
Ard Feainn Heavy Cavalry
- Provision cost changed from 5 to 4.
Syndicate
No changes.
The strongest getting stronger, the weakest getting weaker.

Looking at the pre-release balance changes, Enraged Cyclops must now be the MO card getting nerfed fastest.

Stupid me thinks game would become a bit more like in back the early days with every "balancing". Instead it gets more boring meta again and again. No wonder the game will soon no longer be supported. Still play it, still refusing meta decks.
 
Hi,

any particular reason the number of wins is no longer shown on the player profile and instead you chose to show (what seems to be) the cycle progress instead?
Do you think we wont be able to recognize griefers and rank system abusers?
Or are you maybe trying to incite people to do the same? i.e. stay at rank 8-15 after playing since beta and hope to match up and abuse new players
Ladder and match making make no sense, at least to me since 90% of the time i match with people with over 3x my number of games
And its disappointing if hiding the number of games was the chosen solution instead of reworking the algorithm

These players have no business matching at their current rank

The new display is misleading, but not fooling anyone of matching with a huge handicap

View attachment 11357440


Also such guys have no business matching Pajabol and Mya-mon in pro rank
View attachment 11357434


No one actually trying to learn or improve at the game is enjoying such match ups

Cheers!

Watch out for that Spring as you play the Gambit, haha. Trippy stuff. Also, pretty sure Sticky Situation flips when opponent "spawns" a unit instead of "playing" it, too.
 
Agree.... would be better that they keep the Purify row effect and add another effect like "Units suffer 1 damage per each condition removed by purify ".
Yeah please change it back.
I even used it quite good in a rats-monster deck to give mourntart a good meal. Now its rather boring and also basically a ST card

Easy. You see the number of wins in the bottom right corner of the profile. :coolstory:
