The end of the beginning: World of Warcraft TCG is closing

I have never played it, but had always thought the game is in relatively good shape.  No dTCG is at the level of Magic nor Yu Gi Oh but after those big two, I thought Vanguard, and the WoW TCG were the biggest.  There were some players questioned, what would happen with HEX and Hearthstone?  The two companies behind the WOW TCG are now working on the new dTCG, which is a direct competition to WOW TCG.  The answer is here.  The WOW TCG is ending.  Blizaard has Hearthstone and Cryptozoic has the HEX.  So it’s the end of the beginning.

World of Warcraft Trading Card Game

We wanted to take a moment to thank all of you World of Warcraft Trading Card Game players out there for your support of the game for close to seven years.

We’ve had a blast working on it, and we knew that Set 21, Timewalkers: Reign of Fire would really grab everyone’s attention. In addition to delivering original and fun gameplay mechanics and giving players a new way to explore the story of Warcraft III, it’s stuffed with every single one of the much-sought-after Loot cards from each of the previous sets.

Set 21 represents something else as well: it’s the climactic last set for the WoW TCG. We are grateful for being able to collaborate with the artists and everyone else who helped make this game a reality all these years. We’re also thankful for all the players and retailers who’ve participated in the community globally. You made ripping open booster packs, discovering the wonders they held, and then building decks and taking them into battle a truly awesome experience.

Thank you all again for your support in making the WoW TCG one of the most epic trading card games of all time.
