I absolutely adore the Christmas season. The carols, the sweets, the various Christmas rituals shared by the people from all across the world. The Slavic world that Witcher Universe was built upon calls the happy celebration around Christmas, Christian and its pagan alternatives, Koledowanie. It’s a time to have fun and enjoy, if for nothing else, because it makes people happy.

The second Gwent Challenger tournament occured last weekend and *spoiler alert* our boy Freddybabes took the win, congratulations! My duty, as usual, is to give you some statistics in form of an infographic. If you haven’t watched the thing, make sure to check out the VODs on CDPR’s Twitch channel. Especially Tailbot’s matches are a blast to watch in my honest opinion.

Factions and Leaders

Again, as with GwentSlam #3, Scoia’tael was a niche pick, only brought by one player - Adzikov with Brouver Hoog as the Leader of the sole ST deck. Unfortunately, the Polish player was eliminated in the first round and did not play the deck once. All players did choose Monsters and Nilfgaard with Emhyr var Emreis being the only NG Leader chosen. For Monsters, Dagon hid in the Fog and was absent from the competition. Northern Realms and Skellige were the second most picked factions. Radovid was a niche pick for NR, only brought by Freddy and the remaining being equally popular. Crach an Craite and King Bran were both represented the same amount in line-ups but Harald was not chosen once.


Surprisingly for a tourney with such high quality players, there were lots of sweeps and only one match went through all five games! 8 games of a total of 25 were mirrors matches and in 5 of 8 even the same leader battled against each other.

The coinflip was once again not a noteworthy issue with an almost 50:50 outcome on red and blue coin.
