The 32-deck pool will be divided into 3 random decks for each player.

They must be played with; it’s a BO3, thus you can ban one deck from the opponent list.

It’s a best-of-fives format for the Grand Finals, so plan accordingly as it’s possible for there to be a total of 10 games.

You have to use the Aretuza Ban Tool, this will give you the coin you get to play and the bans.

Due to the double-elimination format of the competition, each participant must lose two games in order to be eliminated.

If you lose again after being sent to the losers brackets the first time, you are eliminated from the competition.

The winner of the upper bracket will face the winner of the lower bracket in the tournament’s grand final, and the winner of the losers bracket must defeat the winner of the upper bracket TWICE.

You are not permitted to play a deck again throughout the match after winning with it.

If a player utilises a deck that is prohibited or modified from the one chosen during the draws, that player will immediately lose that game.

Players CANNOT CHANGE the assigned decks.

The player who achieves two victories win the match.

You must be on the Discord Channel if any problem shows up or if you have any question/suggestion:

Dates

Main Event, Casino Gwent Cup: from September 8 to September 30 (This may change)

Players will see their opponents on 6th september.

After getting to know your opponent, you should speak with them to determine when is the best time to play your matches.

If for any reason any player couldn’t play the match the day they talked about before, the player who shows up will pass for the next round.

After 15 minute of waiting, if for ANY reason the opponent still hasn’t arrived, the player who did wins the round.

Every round will start at 00:00 Hrs in Mexico (GMT-5).

All players will have until 16:00 Hrs (GMT-5) of the same day to get in contact with your opponent, then you must inform the staff on Discord at what time you will play, use the Discord Section called #Time-Matches.

If for any reason you tried to contact your opponent and he didn’t respond, you win this round.

The agreement of the pairings may have some issues because of the time zone differences. Both players will be eliminated if they cannot agree on a time for their matches to take place

Ties, disconnections, bugs or cheats

If there is a tie, the game must be played again with the same deck and coin.

The player who encountered a bug or error must take a screenshot of the issue and submit it to his opponent so that he can determine how to proceed with the game in that situation.

If they are unable to come to an agreement, they should speak with the tournament moderators to resolve the issue.

Here are the Moderators of the CGC Discord:

mcm5392#3609 (ESP)
TeaAddict#0517(ESP)
AcidBunny#5715(ENG)

The Winners Bracket Final, Losers Bracket Final and Grand Final will be held on the official CDPR tournament platform.

The match must be restarted if a platform error occurs during the match that prevents the players from finishing the game or from watching the broadcast of the game.

The final of the winners’ bracket, the losers’ bracket, and the grand final will be broadcast live on the CGC Streamers simultaneously, players are NOT allowed to stream the Finals.

The practice of cooperative gameplay* or stream sniping is prohibited. If any participant is caught (with evidence) doing one of these practices, they will be eliminated from the tournament.
*Cooperative gameplay means that you get help from friends to play the match, telling you how to play or what is the best way to play, this can happen when sharing your screen to your friends or teammates via Discord. This is considered a disadvantage since you are supposed to play the tournament alone by yourself without any help.

Every player has the ability to broadcast their games on any streaming platform. Because the streamer is in charge of his chat, he must take care to ensure that no one gives advise during the games. To avoid any suspicion of coordinated gameplay or stream sniping, we recommend a few minutes of delay.

Charity Tournament: Gascon’s Gift (Main Event)

Introduction

And just when you thought things were about to get dull… day 2 of the ShupeTV/Bandit Gang charity event appears! After the battle on the 7th of August between a troll and a pig, where the pig ended up gaining the upper hand in the end, will today be the showdown between some of the best players from the best Gwent teams!

Gascon’s Gift has the same goal as yesterday, to entertain people and collect money for a good cause, while this time each of the nine invited teams picked their charity they want to fight for.

Without any restrictions or special rules, we can expect a more competitive and meta oriented battlefield… but who knows, maybe someone will surprise us with some spicy line ups which prevail to be the winning strategy.

So again, let’s take a look on the tournament settings, the invited teams and who will participate trying to duke out Gascon’s Gift tomorrow!

Charity Tournament: ShupeTV vs Bandit Gang

Introduction

Il était une fois…months ago when ShupeTV casted the Kalkstein Horror Event, organized by Team Elder Blood, they were able to watch some of our Bandits in action. Since then both teams developed a deep friendship, especially with our French players Xhanthiax and Sikamouk. Some Bandits, like Sawyer1888 even managed to win the weekly Shupe community tournaments, in his case it was under the motto Blitzkrieg.
(Who else could have won it…)

Based on this history both teams always wanted to have a face off against each other, so we thought why not combine it with a good cause? The idea was to make it entertaining but also unique and challenging. So, for that reason day one of the charity event is meant to be the day Shupe finally catches the Pig…or maybe ends up like Robert Baratheon.
A troll fighting against a pig for a good cause, what more to ask for on a Saturday afternoon?

Let’s take a closer look on what the tournament will be about, its participants and what to expect.

Charities

Each team will choose a charity of their choice. There is no limitation on this charity in terms of the cause it supports, its political affiliation, or its geographical location. All that Bandit Gang asks is that it is a public non-profit charity. All donations during the weekend will all be entered into the prize pool and donated accordingly by player placement.

Prize constellation

Winning Team – 65% of the prize pool towards this team’s charity
Second placed Team – 35% of the prize pool towards this team’s charity

Rules

The event will be played under a special ruleset with certain restrictions. This means for example Team Bandit Gang have to include Gascon or other Bandit cards, while ShupeTV obviously has to play singleton Shupe or other ogroids. The team with the most wins will also win the whole event. In total that means each player has to play one Best of 3 with his or her faction against their opponent, so we have six games to cast.

If the event ends in a draw in total, each team picks someone for a final face off in a Best of 5, where all decks has to get a win.

Tournament Format

Start Time: Saturday August 7th @ 8am CDT

Six players of each team will face their opponent in a regular Best of 3
(Three decks, one ban etc.)Each player will receive one faction which he or she represents, means that this specific player has to create three different decks with different leaders of the same faction 🡪 The teams decide for themselves which player will represent which faction

Some deckbuilding restrictions count for all decks together, means for example if you need to play Shupe, at least one deck must be a Shupe deck, the others can be non-singleton.

For each team there will be different restrictions, fitting to their team’s name or based on other things, which will be worked out together by ShupeTV and Bandit Gang.

For ShupeTV the tournament will be streamed at

For Bandit Gang the tournament will be streamed at
