Here’s a roundup of changes coming to Gwent in the near future that were displayed on the Gwent live stream today (VOD Link)! The big change will be the ability to position cards on the board rather than they just being added automatically. We’ll also be getting Avatars, Emotes, and a newly textured game board with more information (graveyard and deck count). They also confirmed that they won’t be introducing any new cards in the next patch.
I think I got the majority of the changes, apologies if I missed any!
