the $100,000 winner is Guillame Matignon, who crushed his opponents (including the US Champ Brad Watson) with-- what else-- a Blood Elf Paladin. Unfortunately, it looks like UD's Ben Drago was far too busy to blog, but UD's official site has lots of great information and recaps.
- This really was a World Champs-- players hailed from countries all over the globe.
- Here's a great walkthrough of the artists' table, including a few good insights from the artists about where the card art comes from.
- Unfortunately, Upper Deck didn't let us into that dinner with the developers that they held, but here's the two guys who got to go.
- And finally, the players: they put together not only profiles of the top 8 players, but after it was all said and done, an interview with the $100,000 winner. The French player ran undefeated for 12 rounds to win it all, and how'd he do it. "Aggressive Horde, always." For the Horde!
