"Random Number Generator" (or "Generation"), randomness in Gwent or an instance thereof.
In Gwent, high RNG cards, such as Zoria Runestone, are seen as bad by some players as they come with high variance and their value can fluctuate widely. This makes them unpredictable. Another instance of high RNG in CCGs is draw RNG during the mulligan phase which can culminate in a topdeck battle.
Green Cricket is one of the heads of Aretuza, creating an environment where players and content creators can thrive and continuously improve themselves. In addition to his work at Aretuza, he runs a Gwent YouTube channel for beginners and advanced players alike.
