Gwent: The Witcher Card Game on Xbox One and Windows 10

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, a popular digital fantasy card game on Microsoft’s Xbox One console, has just implemented an update to its matchmaking system which should apparently benefit higher-tier players who had been having trouble getting matched with payers of similar skill levels.

“For the past couple of weeks we’ve been exploring the difficulties a number of top-ranking players have experienced with GWENT’s matchmaking. Knowing how important it is for you to be matched with an opponent just right for you, regardless of your standing on the leaderboard, we decided some refinements to the system were necessary,” the official statement reads. “The adjustments we’ve made are now live. They make searching for opponents faster and more precise, and the number of ranking points distributed after each match better reflect the matchup. We’ve also realigned the ranking for the top of the leaderboard, while retaining the relative order in the ladder. These changes will mostly affect top-ranking players. However, we believe they will.”

Gwent is currently in Game Preview on the Xbox One and is available for all console owners to play for free. A version for Windows 10 is planned which will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title supporting cross-play and cross-saves between console and PC.
