I’ve been playing Gwent for the past couple of months, and I do enjoy it a lot, but just this past week I found my interest waning – for several of the reasons the devs cite. I do want rows to have a purpose, and I also find it annoying that the cards (which have beautiful art, some of it animated) look so small on the board. Coin-flip is annoying too; I’m not sure I love the sound of their proposed fix (leaders getting different initiative), but I’m glad they’re trying things. And yeah, I want the game NOT to be Hearthstone. What attracted me to Gwent is that it’s different: more skill, less RNG.
Anyway, I’m willing to give them time to figure things out. Most of the changes sound great to me.
