Tom Chilton Interview: Possible Raid Boss Before Cataclysm
2010/02/18 at 7:01 PM
published yesterday an interview with Tom Chilton, game director for World of Warcraft, looking back on the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.
They talk about how what classes we might have seen instead of Death Knights, graphical improvements, PvP, why Ulduar was chosen and even a brief discussion of the content patch between now and and Cataclysm.
Hint: It just might be a
single-boss encounter in the Ruby Sanctum
, inside Wyrmrest Temple!
For the final question, there’s been some rumors going around and I wanted to clear them up. You guys have wrapped up the main Lich King storyline.

Blizzard and Upper Deck Parting Ways
2010/02/12 at 8:10 PM
As some of you may have heard on other sites, such as
are not renewing the contract for Upper Deck to produce the trading card game cards. This is a big change as Upper Deck is one the biggest distributors of TCG that I can think of. Blizzard has said they will continue forward with the TCG and are continuing to look forward.
Now onto a little speculation! From what I noticed and have heard about around the water cooler (You didn't know we had a water cooler?) is that Blizzard likes to do things in-house. Compared to when Blizzard and Upper Deck first launched the WoW TCG, Blizzard has received a lot of experience in the TCG arena and they may have decided it's time to bring the project under their own umbrella. This would mean Blizzard would begin printing the cards and distributing it themselves and would have more freedom in how to handle things.
You can read the post by Blizzard regarding this after the break.
