Just a quick heads-up about this scheduled event, following the delay of the free-to-play card game spin-off from The Witcher. You'll need a key to take part (distributed from tomorrow, 22 September, via Twitter and FaceBook - I expect that these will be plentiful), but this could be a good opportunity to try out the game at an early-ish stage.https://www.playgwent.com/en/killtheservers

Hope everything’s well on your end!
Us? A bit anxious -- we’re on the verge of launching the Closed Beta of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game and we’re cooking up a special event connected to that. It’s called Kill the Servers!, it’s taking place on September 23rd and 27th, and it will allow some of you to play GWENT even before the Closed Beta!
Metaphorically speaking, Kill the Servers! is designed to punch our hosting backend in the gut. We want to see how everything reacts to a lot of you joining the battlefield simultaneously. Once you blow out the fuses, and you probably will, we can fix things so the Closed Beta runs smooth when we launch on October 25th.
Long story short, we want to stress test the servers and we need your help to make that happen.
Help us, will ya?
