At Bandit Gang, the end of the year means the end of year interviews. All members are put to the test one by one about the events of the past year that shaped them. Private as well as business. In these interviews in which no mince of words will be stated, no taboos exist, sometimes harsh words are used and where you get a nice insight into the soul life of the interviewee.
Babyjosus: Welcome Arya, you are next in line after Corchit. How would you reflect on the year 2021?
GhostArya: I don’t even know where the year went! It seems like such a short one honestly. However, a lot has changed and looking back at it, it was definitely an exciting one.
BJ: I know you achieved certain goals on Twitch this year. How do you look back at those?
GA: I celebrated one year on twitch and reached 2k followers, this was huge for me! I am glad I managed to stay somewhat consistent and streaming now feels like an actual part of my life compared to last year when I was unsure where it will all go.
BJ: Glad to hear that! You also started the beginner series with Christo, what made you decide to work on that?
GA: Lots of people who tune into my streams are people who just started playing Gwent and would ask me about how to get started. So I wanted to be able to provide them with some materials they can rely on, but I didn’t find anything I truly liked – so I thought we could make it happen as a team! It turned out to be quite a big task tho!
BJ: And we all know you are a hamster mom. What has that been like this year?
GA: Benny is getting older and older (he will be two years in April!) and that means he needs more attention. He has been a great company during the year and we enjoy every moment with him. Hope we get to see more of him on streams.
BJ: This year you also met some of our team members like Bomblin, Kalvino and Mercernn, how was that?
GA: Aaah, that was the best best best thing ever! I really enjoy meeting people from the Gwent community and I feel like I have made some new great friends. Hopefully, I will get to visit Bomblin again soon, we need more slav co-ops.
BJ: We definitely do! Is there anything (else) that you would like to do next year?
GA: Work less? Haha. I want to travel more if it will be possible – so maybe I get to visit more Gwent people?
BJ: Who knows! Do you have any new year’s resolutions?
GA: Work less! (Yes, I have to mention that again).
That’s it. I used to give myself goals for each year, but we will just see how things go.
BJ: Good luck! Anything you want to say to the reader in anticipation of 2022?
GA: We all hoped 2021 will be better, but 2022 seems like a much luckier number, so I am going into this year quite optimistic.
BJ: Cheers and happy holidays!

*You think you all will expect the first 5, those are just my favorite and top ST cards of 2021.
3.Sorceress – fish lady
6.Squirrel – Benny!
7.Gedyneith – My favorite scenario that I feel like is finally seeing more play
8.Wild boar of the sea – maximum PEW PEW – or at least… a cool animation?
9.Magne Division – this was buffed so well and with the bonded changes I feel like Magne Swarm is just too good!
10.Tempest – repeat after me: tempest has value. Sometimes the value is moral victory.
