Team Aretuza and Team Nova are proud to present our 7th Gwent Meta Snapshot!

Meta Snapshot #7

With the release of Crimson Curse and looking back on the reception to previous Meta Snapshots, we have chosen now to take a look at how we handle the release of Meta Snapshots. The simple fact is that the meta is ever-evolving, and we don’t want the Snapshot to be seen as stale and out of date, or etched in stone for an entire season. It must echo how the meta actually works.

With this in mind we would like to announce that Meta Snapshot #7 is now available in a revamped form. There are fewer decks in the Snapshot than in previous Snapshot releases, but over the coming days and weeks, as the meta shifts, we will look to add new decks that rise in popularity and strength as well as remove those that become less relevant. Tier too will change, as a deck becomes stronger or weaker it will find itself climbing or falling down the tier list to match.

To keep up with the meta snapshot as it shifts, you can follow us on Twitter, as well as Team Nova, or join the Team Aretuza Discord server, where we will post every Meta Snapshot update as it becomes available.

The initial release of our Meta Snapshot of course contains new decks that have come into existence because of the release of Gwent’s first major expansion, Crimson Curse, including: ST Engine Harmony, Assimilate NG, Self-wound SK, Zealous Orders featuring Queen Calanthe for Northern Realms and Midrange Bleed, using the new Bleeding mechanic, for Monsters

You can find the initial Snapshot, as always with the help of our friends at Team Nova, here. Happy Gwenting!
