Polish developers CD PROJEKT RED have announced a one-off competition in conjunction with ESL to find the best GWENT players in the world. The top four will be pitted against four of the best professionals for a chance of winning a share of the $100,000 prize pool.
These professional gamers are well known as the best of the best, with Trump (Jeffery Shih), Lifecoach (Adrian Koy), Noxious (Kacem Khilaji) and ppd (Peter Dager) the competition will be tough.
“GWENT: The Witcher Card Game was created because The Witcher community wanted it. Now we’re seeing more and more gamers wanting to play GWENT competitively, so here we are with a chance to play against some heavy-hitters, and a prize pool to spice things up,” said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD PROJEKT RED. “I can’t wait to see who wins!”
The registrations, rule set and the tournament road map are all available on the official website.
