The Gwent Season 3 Masters have come to an end and like clockwork, a new update is about to drop – tomorrow, in fact. Patch 9.6 isn’t a massive update but it does add new cards and makes some important changes and work on new features. Among the latter is the option to skip steps of removing and adding packages in Draft. Also among the new features are new trees in the Reward Book tied to the December card drop. (That would be the twelve new cards we mentioned.)
Included in the new cards are two new monster units: the Arachas Queen and Regis: Reborn. One is an insectoid and the other is a vampire so there’s a bit of variation there. Skellige also has two new units, Cerys: Fearless and King Braun – both human warriors. In the Northern Realms set, two more humans – this time soldiers – join the lineup, King Henselt, and King Radovid V. In fact, every faction received two new cards each, as well as several changes to existing cards. You can read about them all on the Gwent site.
Of course, some of you might want to know about the Masters results so Alexander “TLG_Cyberz” Schmidt from Germany was the ultimate winner. He walked away with $35,140. The runner-up was Ilya “BigKuKuRUzina35” Lyapin out of Russia, who earned $9,230.
