This may just be me but I think the introduction of microtransaction pets has something to do with this. It's no secret that the existence of loot cards have been driving up the demand for the trading cards and in a way loot cards are a form of microtransaction. Now that people can get that pet for $10 in the blizzard store there really isn't much reason to go ahead and buy the cards. Im pretty sure Upper Deck wasn't too happy with microtransactions and I wouldn't be surprised if the introduction of the microtransactions was a deal breaker for blizz and upper deck.I could be completely off but just throwing that idea out there

Hmm. Smart speculation, Sky. I'll go with that.

I don't know about that, WoW's TCG is actually pretty popular amongst TCG players. And, of course, the pets have all been mutually exclusive.My understanding is that Upper Deck has been engaging in questionable business practices, which also caused them to lose the licensing rights to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.
