World of Warcraft Trading Card Game closes its doors

World of Warcraft TCG closes its doors
The latest release in the WoW TCG -- Timewalkers: Reign of Fire -- is also its last, according to an announcement on the official site. For nearly seven years, the WoW TCG has been a staple among players in and out of the game alike -- tournaments hosted around the world were as wildly popular as the loot cards in decks that could be turned in for in-game items. Reign of Fire not only tackles the events and story of Warcraft III Timewalkers style, it also includes every loot card that has ever been released for the popular TCG.

Although this is the last set release for the WoW TCG, players will still be able to redeem loot codes for the game on the official website -- so don't despair if you've yet to use your codes for in-game loot! This announcement also marks the end of official tournaments hosted by Cryptozoic or Blizzard, but player-run tournaments will likely still be around for some time to come. At the moment, it seems that Blizzard will not be renewing the license for the WoW TCG.

This is, of course, not the last we'll see of Blizzard-inspired card games, with Hearthstone on the horizon. However, the WoW TCG, introduced during the Burning Crusade expansion, has been a constant for WoW players, and its contribution both in and out of the World of Warcraft will be missed. The announcement on the official website has more information for players, as well as a short FAQ.

Bonus loot coming to WoW TCG's Reign of Fire expansion

wow:tcg
The third set in the WoW: TCG Timewalkers block, Reign of Fire, is due for release on Tuesday, July 23rd and even if you aren't a regular WoW:TCG buyer, you may want to reconsider this one. That's because according to this post by Mike Rosenberg, any and all Loot Cards from each of the twenty previous expansions will be available in Reign of Fire. In addition, the odds that one will appear have been increased to 1:9 from the normal 1:11. There will thus be four Loot Cards per box, and four rare Loot Cards per case. That being said, the previous designations of common, uncommon, or rare, don't necessarily indicate their frequency of appearance in Reign of Fire, so be warned!

The rarest of all additions to the new expansion, however, are the so-called God Packs. These are entire packs featuring nothing but loot cards. That's right--an entire pack of WoW:TCG loot cards. I'm certain this will make numerous collectors very happy, however be warned! The God Packs are extraordinarily rare. Simply getting one is a feat in and of itself!
