Yet, it brought something new to the table and created a community significant and stable enough to become self-sustainable. Developers listened to feedback and did several revamps of the game that made it a much better experience for both casual and tryhard players.
In 2019 Gwent had its first official esports series (not counting Challengers from previous years), called GWENT Masters, which should have come back this year, starting this March.
Unfortunately for Gwent fans and professionals, the world is in a state of emergency right now, and like many other big esports competitions, this too has been postponed without a new date on sight.
The official Twitter statement says that they will share a new plan for hosting the tournament soon.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the current COVID-19 situation and with our utmost priority being the health of GWENT World Masters participants, guests, and employees, we made the difficult decision to postpone the event. We will share a new plan for hosting the tournament soon.— GWENT Masters (@GWENTMasters) March 10, 2020
