Hi all,
Did any of you manged to win that batlle on highest difficulty lvl? I have fully upgraded camp. But i've lost a few golden cards durring the campaign. Eyc, Gabor and Rayla.
I'm struggling with it for a few days now, trying different deck builds and i can't defeat that nilfgardian bastard!
His ability to draw 3 additional cards from his enormous 90 card deck to his hand is killing me. He can win even if i have 100 points (or even more) of adventage over him after pass!!!

I am experienced Gwent Player and If whole Thronebreaker game wasn't a big challange even on the hardest difficulty than this battle.... it feels impossible to win...
I'm begging you please help me
Did any of you manged to win this nightmare?

Battle is not that hard,i won with knight spam deck easilty since u can get 300+ points in single round with it.Just use reinforce on adepts to add mass knights into ur deck and save ur combo for last round, u have to win round 1 tho.
Hello.

I won battle on first attempt using Skelige warriors + Lyrian Scytheman + Alchemists.
First round won by Skelige Wariors alone (something around 72 to 68).

Second round Lyrian Scytheman deployed with card that allow You to draw all of them from Your deck, Skellige warriors resurected from graveyard and Alchemists.
With this comibnation I had around 350 points at end - enough to win battle.
Also Mahakam Beer (or whatever its called) card was useful, since it was giving me 4 points for every enemy turn.

I am sorry that I do not remember names precisely - I was playing in polish language version and I have finished campaning already so I can not get back to my deck and check names in english.

Best regards.

R1 I used rivian pikemen (have 5 of them in the deck) so it's instant 30 points with high morale.
Then I play around with stray slingers to buff Gascon, and r3 ez win with black rayla, reynard, gascon, etc..

There is also a "Fury" solution, with destroying an entire aep dahy's deck in the 1st round, then finishing his hand off in the 2nd. It's only possible if you have requisited ballistae earlier.
The Deck is Angreni Blade, Manticore Trophy, 5 Ballistae, 5 Scouts, 5 Adepts (2 cloning of the Scouts in the first round is essential for the victory), 5 Medics, 1(2 for higher initial draw rolls) Bomber(s), 2 Pitfalls, Arnjolf, Blacksmith (Marching Orders, Reinforcements, Decoy, Any card), Eyck, the rest is entirely optional.
The strategy is to create 2 Pitfalls and Fire rows, then deploy Arnjolf and as much as possible ballistae as fast as possible. At the rounds around 5 you need to expand your scouts count with 2 adepts to 9 and deploy them with reinforcements card in time to repopulate your hand before it ran out. The remaining Adepts should create more ballistae, for the 2nd round. Then just keep rotating your scouts back and forth, to and from, deck and graveyard, using Angreni Blade, Medics and shooting out your worked out scouts to free the space on battlefield. Having that done, you will have guaranteed enjoyment of the 30 rounds of burning agony of the nilfs, to the last one in the deck. The 2nd round use blacksmith to summon another several ballistae (created with adepts in the 1st round) and serve them with the topping of Eyck and whatever you like from the rest of your deck.
It is possible, with a bit of luck and point stealing units you can turn the tide easily. However, the fight, similarly to several other fights in game is bugged. I lost several times just because the enemy's general used his special ability two times in a row. I also won several battles during the game even though I literally lost them. CD Projekt, fix your game, it brings you shame!
Also, the fact that you cannot just resume from this battleafter quitting the game is utter nonsense! Why? Why am I forced to repeat the useless part before it? And why do I have to watch the beginning of the intro each time I start the game (plus, thanks to that I realized that the bounty hunter who releases the narrator is an utter idiot)? Why press and click through three screens which makes no other sense than to just piss the people who have bought the game?

Sorry for the rant, I am really annoyed by the fact that this battle I have just finished had to be repeated so many times due to a bug (and that leaving today would force me to go through the previous one and all the narration-spree again).
Not cool, CDP, not cool. After this whole Thronebreaker thing, with all of the bad PR, and talk of real like politics references in your next game, I am pretty worried about Cyberpunk and I am not sure I will pre-order (which was my intention before).

Well perhaps I wasn't imagining the generals special ability over usage then! I thought it was me.
I've also had several times while trying this battle that using the reinforcements card didn't bring in the units I clicked on, the card just disappeared after use and didn't play anything - had that 3-4 times.

Eventually, I just gave up on this as I just didn't have the deck available to win. I'd unlocked every options and had masses of resources but due to not finding any challenge (on hard) right the way through to the final battle, I'd skipped most of the last section's side quests just to get to the end of the story.

Also, I don't know if the recent 1.1 patch upped the difficulty in the last battle again because the strength of his cards is way above any winning strategies that I've seen on youtube. Most cards he plays (or compares from the deck) are 10-19 and most of my cards are 10 -11 so he gets the +10 boost almost every time. Even when I got a points advantage, I'd run out of cards and he'd be drawing an extra 3 cards (6-9 total) 2-3 times in a round.

Having to click through the story section to reach the battle just burned me out in the end and with no way to go back and gather more cards I don't think I could win.
