Gwent Patch Notes – Patch 0.8.37

This is a minor patch to fix bugs with MardroemeSpawn either a Mutagen or a Spores effect. and a few other cards.

Gwent Patch 0.8.37 Patch Notes

With update 0.8.37, our main goal was to address a set of important issues that have recently come to light, including the use of Mardroeme to get an auto-win after not choosing a target for the Mutagen card. This was not how we intended for the card to work and was something that required our immediate attention, because of the effect it was having on ranked play (players who abused this exploit have already been banned).

Other issues that have been addressed in update 0.8.37 include server errors caused by killing Morkvarg on 2 Strength and playing 3 Reinforced Ballistas and Redanian Elites. These actions should no longer cause the game to desynchronize.

Leader’s Changed to Epic

The rarity of leaders has been changed to epic. If you owned any ones you weren’t given originally, you’ll notice that you’ve gained some Scrap (600 for each). This change makes it easier to create leaders and makes them more likely to show up in Kegs.

Philippa Eilhart Nerfed
