As Gwent is slowly wrapping up its Closed Beta phase and preparing to enter the Open Beta, the first official Gwent tournament has wrapped up. The game is picking up more and more steam, proving that it’s a serious contender in the collectible card game sphere.

Before the tournament, there was a community qualifiers competition. The top four contenders (Mikhail “Fion56” Yastrebov, Alexey “Oikumena” Raspopov, Alexander “ProNeo” Shpak and Barret “Vishra” Goss) participated in the tournament, along with four professional players – Jeffrey “Trump” Shih, Adrian “Lifecoach” Koy, Peter “ppd” Dager, and Kacem “Noxious” Khilaji.

The event was truly worth watching, even though it lasted some ten or so hours. All the candidates fought valiantly, and we got to see both some brilliant plays and detrimental misplays. In the end, there could only be one winner, and that was Adrian “Lifecoach” Koy, who went home with $60.000. Here’s the list of the top four contestants and their winnings.

  1. Adrian “Lifecoach” Koy — $60,000
  2. Kacem “Noxious” Khilaji — $20,000
  3. Peter “ppd” Dager — $10,000
  4. Mikhail “Fion56” Yastrebov — $10,000

Hopefully, there will be more Gwent tournaments in the future, and they’ll be just as exciting as this one. As already mentioned, Gwent has ended Closed Beta registration, in preparation for the next phase. Once the Open Beta is up, there’ll certainly be an influx of new players, widening the user base and, perhaps, bringing in future champions.

Below, you can see a compilation video of the Challenger tournament highlights. Or, if you want to watch the whole thing (and it is worth watching), you can do so on the official Gwent YouTube channel.
