A NDA recently came up which allowed KingBlackToof to discuss a significant change coming soon to Gwent! You will soon be able to position cards on the board. Currently whenever you play a card to the board it goes to the right of whichever card is already on that row. When this patch is enabled you will be able to put it to the left, right, or in-between cards already on the board. You will still, however, be constrained by the card’s row e.g., Melee, Ranged, or Siege.
Check out KingBlackToof’s video below which goes more in-depth on the upcoming change.
