gwent closed beta errors problems

Torrential Rain wrong description

This is a textual error. Torrential Rain affects the Siege row, not the Melee row. This is common knowledge to experienced Gwent players, but it can confuse new players. The developers are working on resolving the issue. Until then, try to remember – Torrential Rain affects Siege, not Melee.

No level up rewards after Level 3 in Gwent Closed Beta

Some players have complained that the game isn’t giving them rewards for leveling past Level 3. Luckily, this is just a visual bug. You’re getting those rewards, it’s just that the game doesn’t display it. The developers are working on solving the problem. Meanwhile, try restarting the game and checking the counters again.

Can’t save custom decks in Gwent Closed Beta

This is one annoying glitch and many players have experienced it. Fortunately, the developers said that restarting the game should fix this problem.

Gwent Closed Beta card disenchant not working

A lot of players complained that certain cards can’t be disenchanted. This is one more glitch that you should be able to fix by restarting the game.

Swallow not working on Geralt

And it’s not just Swallow. Thunderbolt doesn’t work on Geralt either. Many players have attempted to buff Geralt with potions. After all, potion cards give witchers more strength than to other cards. This is not a bug – Geralt is simply a gold card, and potions won’t work on gold cards. The ones that do get the extra buff are Vesemir, Lambert and Eskel.

Prize-winning Cow spawns two Chorts

The Prize-Winning Cow spawns an additional Chort on the opponent’s side sometimes. It seems to happen when your opponent already has a Chort on the battlefield. The developers are probably working on this, but for now, be careful with the Cow.

No post-match rewards in Gwent Closed Beta

There’s a bug where the game doesn’t show any rewards after the match. This seems to affect PC users mostly. The Spoils Of War screen will come up, but the game won’t show your leveling nor the ore and scraps that you’ve won. This is a visual bug. You’re getting your experience, ore and scraps, it just doesn’t show it. If you restart the game, you’ll see that the numbers have gone up.

Gwent Closed Beta crashes to main menu

The game sends you to the main menu after you’ve tried to do something. This error seems to happen at random. You’ll be browsing through the store or the deck builder or just trying to enter a casual match. Suddenly, you’ll get booted to the main menu and have to log in again. Unfortunately, there’s no known fix for this, but restarting the game might help.

Foltest leader ability not working

Sometimes, Foltest creates copies of your units on the opponent’s side. Instead of copying your units to your side, using Foltest’s leader ability will sometimes give the copies to your enemy. Unfortunately, we haven’t found a way to work around this.

Gwent Closed Beta crashes after opening keg

There are reports of the game crashing after opening four cards in a keg. Some players have had the game crash on them after revealing the first four cards. There’s no official solution, but it seems that the issue seems to resolve itself after the first four tries.

Stuck in deck builder in Gwent Closed Beta

Sometimes, players might get stuck in the deck builder. You might be able to filter the cards, but that’s it. The only known solution is to close the game using Alt+F4, sadly.

This guide is a work in progress. We’re going to update it with more information as it surfaces.
