Deckbuilding has changed drastically in Homecoming, providing us with more freedom to create our decks.
To utilise this freedom to our full advantage, the video offers suggestions to card distributions, how many archetypes should be included in a deck and more.

In addition, we'll take a look at each faction to discover the mechanics and potential synergies of their cards.

Brouver Shupe is a deck that was first introduced after the Midwinter Update in December 2017. However, it did not reach its full prominence in the meta until Saber97’s guide on April 2018, and further innovation by high-ranking Chinese players in May 2018. After that, it quickly rose in popularity, culminating in Gwent Open #6 where six out of eight players (including the winner, Kolemoen, and runner-up, proNEO) were equipped with it. However, Brouver Shupe then fell out of the meta, becoming much less popular as a ladder and tournament pick.

This article will track the rise and fall of Brouver Shupe, and how this has been impacted by the changing tournament meta.

Hi. I’m Lothari. I have been playing Gwent since the end of the Closed Beta and, having spent some time as a game developer in my day job, not only do I have a good grasp of the game as a player, but also some insight into its development process.

After a long wait, Homecoming is now right around the corner. What we’ve seen so far has made a lot of the community nervous. This is somewhat normal with all games, but with this article I’d like to look into some of the concerns raised so far and whether we actually need to worry.

This article is one of two that will be published over the coming days.

The article gives insight in the tournament preparation of Team Aretuza’s Gwent Challenger #4 finalists AretuzaAndyWand and Damorquis.

Preparation and the choice of the right strategy is crucial when going into Gwent Masters tournaments. Predicting the opponents’ line-ups, making the right meta call and inferring information from previous tournament performances of decks and players respectively, all of that lays foundation for the choice of strategy for the next event. A good tournament preparation includes not only a strong strategy, but also a fair amount of practice and testing, to optimise not only the tech choices but also the player’s ability to execute the game plan successfully.

The Arena Tier List that we present on our website is based on the normal Arena mode where all the cards from all factions are available. Since the interactions between different cards with different factions, are a huge part of the evaluation process, the tier scores would not reflect the reality during the events such as Faction Specific Arena Mode (cards from only one faction are available) or One-Color Arena Mode (only Gold, only Silver or only Bronze). Therefore in an article series we are going to discuss how to approach to the different modes and the significant changes on the tier scores of the normal arena mode.
