CD Projekt Red, creators of The Witcher series of games, announced GWENT Challenger, an official GWENT: The Witcher Card Game tournament organized in partnership with ESL.
This tournament will pit 4 best players from the community against professional gamers: Trump (Jeffrey Shih), Lifecoach (Adrian Koy), Noxious (Kacem Khilaji), and ppd (Peter Dager). GWENT Challenger finalists will compete for a total prize pool of $100,000.
“It’s a real privilege to observe how active GWENT players are in the realm of competitive gaming. Community-powered tournaments like The Passiflora Championship, The Seven Cats Brawl or The Gwentlemen’s Open are a source of inspiration for the entire team, and we definitely want this part of GWENT to grow,” said Paweł Burza, Community Manager, CD Projekt Red
“GWENT: The Witcher Card Game was created because The Witcher community wanted it. Now we’re seeing more and more gamers wanting to play GWENT competitively, so here we are with a chance to play against some heavy-hitters, and a prize pool to spice things up,” said Marcin Iwiński, Co-founder, CD Projekt Red. “I can’t wait to see who wins!” Iwiński adds.
