Weekly Bandit Gang Content Update #4

Welcome to your weekly Bandit Gang content update.

Hello Strays of Spalla!

We hope you have had a great week, because we sure did, topped by our amazing watch party in the Discord  to watch the first Gwent Open with the BG community. Moving forward, we will make sure to announce any similar events on our socials!

Another thing I would like to touch upon is all the letters we received regarding the interest in joining Bandit Gang for article writing and guest writing. I have talked to a variety of people and decided to take three Article Writers on a one-month trial and three additional Guest Writers to contribute in our writing endeavors. We look forward to seeing what they can bring to the table!

Thank you for 200 subscribers!

Thank you for supporting us by subscribing to our YouTube ! We reached 200 subscribers and we decided to make a video to mark the occasion. In the video, we go through the current successes of BG that led up to this milestone and how excited we are for the future of the team and the channel. We hope you enjoy!

So You Want To Play Sihil!

This Saturday at 4am CEST, Carrost will be unsheathing Sihil, testing out its balance and whetting it to reach its full potential. And knowing that the last two cards Carrost has been talking about are getting attention from CDPR with the next patch, do we foresee another Sihil meta? Oh no, I surely hope we don’t. I believe there are still people out there with PTSD from the last time! Anyways, let’s see what he will write about the card first. You can also read the other two articles he wrote here.

Interested to see the editing progress of the next Lore Blast video?

Enzo is once again planning to stream his editing process of the next Lore Blast episode on Twitch this Saturday starting at 4PM CEST. What this episode is going to be about? Who knows. Tune in here  to find out.

Weekly Bandit Gang Content Update #3

Welcome to your weekly Bandit Gang content update.

Hello Strays of Spalla!

Another splendid week we had last week, and another splendid week ahead of us. Last weekend we had the Season of the Bear Top 64 Qualifier and it was casted by one of our Content Creators and it was so cool to see that we had BG representation for the very first time on an official tournament cast!  I am speaking of TheOneChristo  who casted the final two games alongside his longtime friend WatchFlake. You can find the matches on his YouTube channel. This is just another example that not only we are growing as a team, but also that our members are getting more recognition in the community. We are immensely proud of him getting this opportunity and nailing it!

Listen to the Tunes of Gwents Elite, a soundtrack for Climbing and Grinding the ladder

Ever wondered what your favorite streamers listen to? Academy Manager and Article Writer Sawyer1888 , talked with over 60 people from the Gwent community about their favorite music to create this unique playlist: The Tunes of Gwents Elite. You can read more about it here , but make sure to give it a listen too!

The man put in a lot of time and effort into this specific project, he said so himself that over 50 hours were spend reaching out to all the people and talking to them. This is just another example of how we at Bandit Gang prefer quality over quantity.

Weekly Bandit Gang Content Update #2

Welcome to your weekly Bandit Gang content update.

Hello Strays of Spalla!

First of all, thanks to anyone out there that has been watching and showing support to our streamers play the game Trials of Fire live on Twitch, we hope you had a great time in this week of spotlight. Yesterday we concluded it and it was good to see that many of our content members worked closely together, by either hopping onto each other streams or just hanging out in the Twitch chat and helping out by giving tips & tricks.

Speaking of tips & tricks, Enzo has worked on a first impression and guide video for Trials of Fire regarding the Bandit Gang YouTube  which you can check out down below!

If  you want to see more of our videos then feel free to go our videos page on the website, we recently launched it . You can get directed towards it here.

A warm welcome to the latest addition to the Content Team!

Graphic Designer: NotKelseyArt

Carrost is the latest addition to the Content Team for Team Bandit Gang. During his 1 month trial we found out that he has quite the skill-set for when it comes to content creation. While he has been playing Gwent for over a year, he is relatively new to streaming on Twitch. His charisma and passion for memes is something that we liked about him. Not to forget to mention that he is a Voice Actor in his daily life and you can expect to hear his voice on a few projects that we have planned on the Bandit Gang YouTube channel. And at last, Carrost is a talented article writer as some of you might have already witnessed, so believe me when I say that you should keep your eyes peeled on this man.

Side Note: There will be an introduction interview released with Carrost this week on the Bandit Gang website.

A new series of columns called ''So You Want To Play!'' has been introduced

With Carrost getting out of his 1 month trial, he immediately put pen to paper and started a new series for the Bandit Gang website. Its a series of columns where he lifts a forgotten card out of the muck of disuse and attempt, just for one moment, to elevate it to something usable. In his first edition he wrote a column about the card Poor Fucking Infantry, also known as PFI. You can check it out here.

A video about the powerful spell Alzur's Double Cross and its creation

In case you missed it, our Lore Blast Episode 4  got published last weekend and has gained over 200 views already, not just from lore fanatics, but also from a lot of other members in the community. It has even received the Hugz Award and Snek Award on Reddit.

Lore Blast is a series of short videos covering various topics in the World of the Witcher through Gwent and the Witcher games. With the voice of Moriarty and the Master Editor Enzo to make it look pretty, this series has gotten a significant boost and more consistency.

We are thankful to anyone that has commented and shared our Lore Blast videos!

Bandit of the Month March

Graphic Designer: NotKelseyArt

It might not have come as a surprise to you, but of course we had to give the Bandit of the Month to Enzo who has brought life to our YouTube channel. Enzo is someone that has been constantly improve himself when it comes to content creation and video editing. If it wasn’t for Enzo, the Lore Blast series would not have continued. As Moriarty himself said that he wasn’t happy with his own video editing. Therefore, we want to congratulate Enzo with becoming the BOTM of March!

Weekly Bandit Gang Content Update #1

Welcome to your weekly Bandit Gang content update.

Hello Strays of Spalla!

Thank you so much for opening up this article, we hope you’ve had a lovely month so far.

It has been quite the month for Bandit Gang already, with the #SayNoToNetdecking  video that went live on April 1st, episode 3 of Lore Blast and the week of Spotlight for the game Trials of Fire.

The overwhelming response for the #SayNoToNetdecking video on our YouTube  and coverage on Reddit  with receiving the Helpful Award & Bravo Grande! Award  has delighted us at Bandit Gang. Especially considering that it was a group effort, its nice to see that the work payed off.

It has already reached over 700 views and is nearing the 1k views, thanks to all of you sharing and viewing the video!

Every year, Bandit Gang decides to say no to something on April Fools, while its a joke there is always some truth hidden within it. Last year we said no to the card Bribery, this time we decided to say no to Netdecking. While we have nothing against Netdecking itself, we hope to encourage people with the video to simply be open minded and try to build their own decks, even when it means that you will be playing bad cards and fail with them.

Usually when a meta snapshot releases, or a video regarding a deck that gets published by a popular streamer/content creator, you see relatively quickly that the meta starts to shift. Simply because people start Netdecking like a herd of animals, resulting in Homebrews disappearing, and that while encountering those decks in my opinion give me more pleasure when playing against them in Gwent.

One could say that a Homebrew is like a fine pearl. As long as its hidden in the shell, at the bottom of the sea, no one thinks of admiring it. But if you can bring it into the sunshine, this pearl will shine and attract all eyes. Thus the Homebrew, which is hidden from the eyes of the world, will one day shine before the Angels in the sunshine of eternity. A Homebrew, like a pearl, must be brought to the light for people to appreciate it. However, even if no one sees a Homebrew, it will always last in eternity and stand the test of time.

A video about the lore behind Viraxas and the Kingdom of Kerack

In case you missed it, our Lore Blast Episode 3  about Viraxas and the Kingdom of Kerack got published last weekend and has gained over 300 views already, not just from lore fanatics, but also from a lot of other members in the community. It has even received the Helpful Award on Reddit.

Lore Blast is a series of short videos covering various topics in the World of the Witcher through Gwent and the Witcher games. With the voice of MoriartyUK and the Master Editor Enz0Plays to make it look pretty, this series has gotten a significant boost and more consistency.

We are thankful to anyone that has commented and shared our Lore Blast videos!

Bringing spotlight to the game Trials of Fire

This week is a special week for Bandit Gang. We got the opportunity from Neon Bedlam  to bring spotlight to a game called Trials of Fire that is getting out of Early Access tomorrow. Weevil and myself wrote a piece for it which you can check out here.  But, you can expect a lot more from Bandit Gang. There will be an impression video on our YouTube tomorrow and many streams from our Content Creators tomorrow and in the weekend too!

A weekly spotlight is something that might happen again in the future for us at BG, where we are able to give spotlight to a game and work together as a group of Content Creators to give our fans some extra content aside of the regular Gwent content that we produce. In my opinion, its always a good to thing to abroaden your horizon when it comes to gaming in general. Because in the end, Gwent is not the only thing in life. Although Geralt might disagree with me there…

Thank you so much for reading, and for supporting our content at Bandit Gang. Next week I will be back with more content to go through. But for now, I hope you will have a nice rest of your week!
