CD Projekt Red announced their partnership with ESL today to start the first tournament based on their latest card game, GWENT.
GWENT Challenger will feature four of the top players from the community against professional gamers, Trump (Jeffrey Shih), Lifecoach (Adrian Koy), Noxious (Kacem Khilaji) and ppd (Peter Dager), to compete for a prize pool worth $100,000.
Paweł Burza, Community Manager, had this to say about the event:
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
