Gwent Technical Update – Player Levels to be Set to 10!

The Gwent Beta Patch might be launching a bit sooner than expected! There will be a scheduled maintenance on the game that will have some server downtime. If your player level is above 10 it will be brought down to 10, if not, you will experience no change. This is to usher in the newly revamped XP and reward system, as well as the new Ranked Mode!

We are performing a scheduled maintenance of GWENT’s servers. During the server downtime, we will deploy the newest update including Ranked Mode as well as revamped XP and reward systems. As a consequence of the changes the update introduces, your player level will be set to 10 (if you were below that level, nothing will be changed). The maintenance should conclude at 3PM CET.

Gwentify Site Updates: Collection Manager, Deck Pages, Card Ratings, & Deck Builder!

Hello everyone, I’ve gone ahead and added some updates and improvements to some of our features.

Deck Builder

You can now sort by Loyalty, but you can also sort by cards you Own and Don’t Own if you’ve added your Collection to our Gwent Collection Manager. This will allow you to better know which cards you can use before you build the deck. I plan to further improve this feature my demonstrating how many of each card you know, but this is a good start.

gwentify-update001

Deck Pages

If you have your Collection added, you can now see how many of each card you are missing on the deck pages. This will give you a better sense of what you would have to craft to finish a specific deck. The numbers in red denote the cards you are missing. If you don’t see a red number it means you have all of those specific cards.

gwentify-update003

Card Ratings

I’ve added a star rating system for all of the current cards. This will give people a better sense of how good a certain card is and whether or not they should consider crafting it.

gwentify-update002

That’s all the changes for now, but I still have plans to add quite a bit more in the near future. If you’ve been using the site, thanks so much for being a fan!

Introducing Gwentify’s Gwent Collection Manager

UPDATE: The Collection Manager is back up and running and should be fixed. Please let me know in the comments if you have any issues, thanks!

Hey everyone, I’ve been putting together this collection manager for the last couple of weeks and I’ve just put it up live for bug testing. What this does is allows you to input your collection into our database to help with checking which cards you have when you get your Keg pick, and it also helps display which decks you can play in our deck database.

Check it out here (must be Registered to use): Gwent Collection Manager

Collection Manager w/Filters
Collection Manager w/Filters

You’ll notice when searching or viewing decks that you’ll either see the word “Missing” or you’ll see a red Scrap icon. What this displays is the amount of Scrap you would need to craft the entire deck based on your collection.

gwent-collection-manager002
Red Scrap Icon Displaying Missing Scrap

If you go to your Profile > Collection you’ll find stats on how many cards you have and how many unique cards you’re missing to complete your set.

Your Profile Collection Stats
Your Profile Collection Stats

I will be looking to add more features, but I wanted to get the foundation up so people could try it out. Here’s what I should be adding soon:

  • Table View: A more list based view instead of purely images.
  • More Collection Stats: Percentages and how far you are from a complete set (having 3 of each Bronze).
  • Premium Cards: Once premium cards are available I’ll want to have the ability to add them to your collection.
  • Better Mobile Support: Right now it isn’t really usable on a mobile device (can’t remove cards) and I will be making sure this is usable there.

Known Bug

There is currently a bug that doesn’t allow you to sort by owned cards if you’ve added cards and haven’t saved and refreshed the page. I’m still trying to track this down, but because it’s not a huge issue I’ve decided to go live with the collection manager. It’s my first priority to fix this problem. A workaround for this bug is that you can save your collection then refresh the page which will allow you to sort by owned/not owned correctly.

That’s it for now, I would greatly appreciate it if you could leave me feedback or bugs/issues in the comments below! It’s much easier to add more features when I know what the community is looking for, thanks!
