    There are YouTube videos that explain how to play this game. Its confusing at first. but after watching a few videos, I believe I have the hang of it.

    Personally I just really hate card games. I don't play card games in real life, and I'm not about to start playing virtual card games..

    The only gwent game I played was in White Orchard with that professor or whoever he was, and I won the game. The mechanics aren't difficult to understand at all..

    But I consider all card games to be boring as hell, so I don't bother with them..

    I freaking love Gwent, and am quite addicted to it (along with the whole game of course). I'm still early on in Velen (like level 12 or so) and I played and beat every single NPC I've met so far that has the option to play gwent, with the exception of a fisherman from Oreton (which has and insane Nilfgaardian deck!).

    Gwent might be a bit overwhelming at first, I really hated the avalanche of tutorial bubbles, but once you play a bit you will easily get it. And remember, the more you beat different NPCs, the better your decks become, since you win a card from every victory. Oh and hero cards... mmm, shiny... :nerd:

    Qwent can be frustrating when your opponent throws lvl10 cards at you. My opponent had 3 lvl 10 cards and after that I just stopped qwent throughout all my game.

    How do I get the health bars back when they suddenly vanish? :(

    Edit: Seems I'd accidentally turned it off in the options, doh!

    The upper left bars always vanish when you are full HP and are not in combat, no idea if there is a way to have enabled to be always on.

    I have a level 10 card of my own but I'm damned if I know how I get to use it. I have all these decks. I try to use what I think are the best. My opponent either throws superior cards down or passes over and over. I've been 40 points in front and still managed to lose overall somehow. I just end up confused. :3eyes:

    I start a game of gwent with the oh so full intention to have fun while learning but the game seems intent on making me learn by being punished or downright ridiculed and so I end up detesting playing it time and time again.

    When some random merchant completely hands you your ass in a friendly game you honestly just want to tell both him and the game that is gwent that they can both go and s*ck f*cking c*cks in b*stard hell. The pair of motherf*ckers are welcome to one another and never hope to touch it again.

    Yeah it was completely off in and out of combat which made it a bit frustrating! It's always showing when you're not at 100% health either so I was used to seeing it as most time I wasn't full health but then it vanished because I'd turned off some of the clutter stuff in the options but guess I turned this one off as well by mistake.

    dont know if repost, but anyway, here we go, just found this one here:

    [Streaming/Textures]
    UseMipRefiner=true

    no perf drop, but theres a difference in the textures. more detailed maybe? dunno..its better..

    here, you can see it clearly on teh wood stumps.. its more detailed..

    UseMipRefiner=FALSE

    UseMipRefiner=TRUE

    I really hope once redkit is released we'll see a higher poly mesh mod be released.. At times when some cameras are zoomed in close to some items its jarring at how low poly they are..

    Yea, those are from last month. I haven't tried adding them to my user file yet.

    I haven't heard anything about them being such a huge improvement however. Or am I just the only one who hasn't been using them?

    well, i wasnt shure ether where to put it..
    BUT, i did put it in rendering.ini and user.config..

    Afterwards i learned that stuff in the rendering.ini is the Default setting wich the game uses, when u do it or change stuff in the user.config it will override the the changes that where set in rendering.ini..
    so, u should use teh user.settings for it, just paste

    [Streaming/Textures]
    UseMipRefiner=true

    at the very bottom...and youre good to go.. But u might need to set the file to read only after saving, since the game does remove that setting afterwards.. dunno why..

    thats why i have it set in both, user and rendering.ini.

    and again, theres NO perf. drop at all..

    hope that helps.. greetz

    Roger that - except I haven't stopped playing - BUT!
    I haven't been able to beat those NPCs brandishing lvl 10 card
    AND
    Commanders Horn ( you know, the blowable variety? ;-) )
    AND
    Hero cards.
    Doesn't matter how many times I reload - my highest card in the Northern Realms is 8, and I just can't beat these mofos with the better decks?
    Either I have missed some opportunity to buy/win higher levels;
    OR
    I am a complete goober.
    Latter I know to be true, but still *pouts* 'not fair'

    Apart from that this game is like nothing else.
    Also reading how various game gods have beaten the game in yadda yadda time, this boggles my mind, I am 70 hours in, only at level 13, 25% in and still heaps to do in Velen!
    Incredible :)

    I'm 20 hours in and GoG says I'm at 15% yet see the spoiler.

    I'm at level 24, already found Ciri and I'm at Kaer Mohen ready to start the battle. Is that close to the end of the game?

    I didn't even know that until I had destroyed them all, I only knew about it because it said so on one of the loading screens.
