What Is Seasonal Mode?
Seasonal Mode is a special game mode, rotating each month, with a unique ruleset where you fight another player. To join the queue, you need to be at least Level 10.
Playing this mode allows you to complete some quests in the seasonal Reward Tree. Also, this mode is the best place to complete contracts quickly, which will grant you Reward Points (RP). While spending RP, you will encounter special nodes marked with a chalice. Some of these will stop you from proceeding further until you finish a quest. A few of them can be done exclusively in seasonal mode, but most can be done in any mode in game.
What if I don’t have time and reward points for this season’s Reward Tree?
Fear not! CDPR provides a solution: each month, you can find a Seasonal Bundle in the store which contains few of the trinkets – also those unobtainable.
This month, you fight for the Draconid cardback, unique avatar, Draconid border, and the tittle “Dragonslayer”
“Both players have just 8 seconds to complete their turn and 15 seconds to complete the redrawing phrase.”
Are you tired of ropers waiting until the last second to play a card? Then you will love this mode!
Rules for this Seasonal are simple. You need to be faster than Usain Bolt, than Flash, than a Acinonyx jubatus, than… I suppose you get the point. There is no time to think, no time to convert your brilliant ideas into a masterful plan, no time even to properly do the math. There is only one rule you need to follow: Slam points on the board!
The idea for this mode is to build your deck with cards that don’t have long animations, don’t require more than two clicks, and can be placed swiftly and without too much preparation. It’s also very important to be familiar with the abilities of the cards in your deck.
Below, you will find my recommendations for the best cards for this month’s Seasonal Mode as well as deck suggestions that work very well in this mode and are fun to play. I don’t think a faction is particularly stronger than others. They all work great, with maybe a little Monster and Skellige advantage. However, each of the decks presented below requires some experience to pilot it properly. There is just not enough time to figure out things on the go!
This mode is a great place for people who are looking for quick games to perform daily tasks, quests and contracts.
