Gwent – What happened…

I was playing Gwent in beta. Quite a lot of it actually. I had worked hard for cards and even spent real money in game when they had a promotion. I stupidly thought that at least some of those cards would be saved. Logging back in since the new release was a real eye opener. The game looks quite different, I really thought it would look somewhat like the beta but boy was I wrong.  The game went from three rows to two! I can’t understand why? Three rows was fine by me. So of course so many card mechanics changed for this.

I’m not giving up on Gwent and will grind again with this newer version but bugger if I had known it would have changed this much I would have skipped the beta and just learned on the two row board.  And damn do I miss my cards….Birna Bran is completely different. From putting down a sea storm on an opponents row (which looked great graphically)  it now just draws 2 and discards two.

Phillipa….where are you????? Why can’t I find your old card? I’m afraid to see what else is missing or changed.phillipa

I hope this new version will keep my interest piqued. I did prefer it to Hearthstone but alas only time will tell.

What I’m Playing Fall 2018

I haven’t logged into World of Warcraft for over 2 weeks now. I’ll go back when the next update comes but not until then. I cannot stomach doing another world quest. I’ve played BG’s in game since 2006. I’m seriously bored of them.  I know if I do rated it could be better but getting into rated is a drag. Making my own rated is a drag. I just don’t have the patience anymore.

I got my Waste of Time belt and Baa’l but other than that nothing is much fun in the game. I won’t give up yet but for now WoW is on the shelf.

Rather than rush and buy Red Dead Redemption 2 or Assassin’s Creed Odyssey I have decided to be frugal and just finish all my games in my collection. That list includes Kingdom Come Deliverance on PC, Divinity Original Sin 2, Ghost of a Tale also on PC. On PS4 – The DLC’s for Witcher 3 – Blood and Wine and Hearts of Stone, Assassin’s Creed Origins (has only being played for 2 hours). Breath of the Wild for Switch and finishing on my 3DS- Luigi’s Mansion and Ocarina of Time. Those two are really close to the end so I just need to pull up my boots and work through them.

I just have a problem with not finishing games and it needs to stop. Hopefully I don’t get weak and buy another.
