CD Projekt Red hosted a Gwent tournament this past weekend as part of the Masters series, and after some tough competition, the publisher has crowned Ilias “AretuzaAndyWand” Karamanis as the winner of the May 2018 Open. And no, this was no the tourney held in a salt mine, sad to say. Not every tournament can have so epic a venue, after all.
The tournament saw the highest ranked Pro Ladder players face off for the $25,000 prize pool and Crown Points, which serve as ranking points of Gwent official esports series. Players were also competing for spots in the tournament’s final, which guarantee participation in the next Gwent Challenger.
If you missed the action, you can watch most of the May Open tournament recorded on the official CD Projekt Red Twitch.
