For years he competed in Gears of War and after playing the Witcher 3 he got hooked on Gwent. He has always been an Xbox gamer and since Gwent was killed on Consoles, he made the move to PC, just for Gwent. The X in his nickname actually stands for “ex-Xbox player” since his tag on Xbox has always been enerGii without the X.

Nova
renova- Article Writer, Streamer & Gwent Academy Player

Nova is a Russian girl, who makes her way to the top of the ladder slowly but gracefully. Having tasted the temptation of Gwent’s competitive life one day, she jumped from the creative side of the team to the front of the Academy division and does her best to improve her skills and become better at the game. She loves to write, but rarely does so, and this contradiction can briefly reflect her whole essence. She hopes that she can leave at least a tiny, but her own, mark in the game, and make people’s lives brighter with the help of creativity.

Remember that most things, even the greatest movements on Earth, have their beginnings in something small.
