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.

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!
