World of Warcraft Trading Card Game ends

After nearly seven years, Blizzard has announced the end is nigh for the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game. Last month’s card release – Set 21, Timewalkers: Reign of Fire – was designed to “grab everyone’s attention” and also to provide a fitting end to the official game.

The writing had been on the wall for this one – Set 21 contained “every single one” of the rare and sought-after Loot cards from sets 1-20, plus bringing fun, original gameplay mechanics and adding extra back-story to Warcraft III. A fine note to go out on.

Publisher Cryptozoic explains:

While we are sad to see the World of Warcraft TCG end, we are proud to see it end on such a high note.

We hope that you have enjoyed cracking packs and playing with the most iconic characters in the Warcraft universe as much as we have. From raid and dungeon decks to unique heroes, each with their own deck-defining powers, the World of Warcraft TCG has left an unforgettable mark on the world of trading card games. Darkmoon Faires have long been a place for the most friendly and welcoming gaming community on the planet to come together and share their enthusiasm in a competitive, yet friendly, environment.

Officially, this is the end of the TCG. There will be no more official tournaments hosted by either Blizzard or Cryptozoic, and there are no plans to renew the license. If you hold loot cards you have not yet redeemed, you can still get on that via the game’s website, and if you want to hold your own tournament, feel free (just stick to the guidelines).
