Cryptozoic Entertainment has officially launched the World of Warcraft TCG: Worldbreaker Expansion and it’s available in stores everywhere.
Cataclysm comes to the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game on December 14th! Worgen and Goblin allies accompany two new Dragon Aspect Master Heroes. Plus, there are three new Loot cards: Landro’s Lil XT, Grim Campfire, and Mottled Drake. The common Loot card is no longer a consumable; it’s now a vanity pet, a new color of the Lil XT from the Blizzard store. The Mottled Drake is an exclusive flying mount ready to take to the skies in search of Deathwing. Head to your hobby or retail store on December 14th to find these packs.
Worldbreaker will celebrate its own release with Release Parties on December 18th and 19th. The format will be Worldbreaker Sealed Pack, and every player will win a foil Ruby Enforcer promo card just for participating. For a Release Party near you, please see Cryptozoic blog post.
Stores around the world that run Battlegrounds will host Worldbreaker Release Parties on the weekend of December 18th and 19th.
Participants will play Worldbreaker Sealed Pack and take home a foil Ruby Enforcer card as the participation prize. If you don’t know how to play the World of Warcraft TCG, you can visit these locations on the weekend of December 11th and 12th for a free demo.
The recent Darkmoon Faire Los Angeles yielded a winner: Alex Gellerman. The cosplay contest was won by Maryssa (Alexstrasza) and Cynthia Hall. Photos of the event can be found here.

Hello there, Cryptozoic fans. We had a setback regarding the production of Worldbreaker and its packaging. We’ve resolved the issue and the street date for Worldbreaker is December 14th, 2010.
As you can see from Deathwing’s jaw jutting out of the bottom of the logo, the set will feature Cataclysm content. In the game’s fifth year (hooray!), we improved Loot as well. The common Loot card will be an alternate skin Lil XT as seen on the Blizzard store. Yes, the common Loot card is now a pet and this will continue with each set moving forward. The uncommon Loot card is the Grim Campfire. You won’t need any scary stories to bring a fright to those around this fire! Finally, the Rare Loot will be the Mottled Drake, a flying mount for your World of Warcraft MMO character. We’ll do a big announcement about the Loot cards in the future.
Darkmoon Faire Los Angeles will be the first place you’ll be able to touch the new cards, as the format will stay Worldbreaker sealed. It’ll be the first chance for players to touch, see, and smell those cards! We will have spoiler cards featured here and through our international partners. We will maintain a forum post containing all the spoiled cards and links to the corresponding articles to ensure that every player has the same information available. So, please join us in Los Angeles December 4th and 5th as we unveil Worldbreaker to the WoWTCG community. Also, the DMF Room Rate expires on the 12th of this month. Book your room today.
We’ll see you next month in L.A. and look forward to Worldbreaker previews in the next week or two. Thanks and take care!
Cryptozoic Entertainment posted the 2011 Organized Play Schedule for the World of Warcraft TCG: Scourge War including the Darkmoon Faire, World Cup, Continental Championships and the World Championship.
To boot we have a preview of the AWESOME Darkmoon Faire Playmat reward featuring the Lich King.
Though Cryptozoic Entertainment is anchored in Irvine, CA, the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game community spans the globe. We fly our merry band around the world each year with the Darkmoon Faire tournament circuit, putting up thousands of dollars in prizes in the main event alone. If you want a Spectral Tiger Loot card, this is the best way to win one! The DMF is an entire weekend of festivities, a variety of tournaments kicking off each day with every type of player in mind. This is for our community; no matter what your skill level or dedication, there’s an event for you at the Darkmoon Faire.
It’s three-on-three for national pride! We’ll have our full tournament announcement in the coming month, but we do have some facts to share now. It’s a three-day event, and you’ll register a team on Day 1 with two of your fellow countrymen. You’ll compete on Day 1 individually (you won’t play one another) and each country’s top scoring team advances to Day 2, as well as at least 10 of the next top scoring teams overall. You’ll then complete on Day 2 and Day 3 with your team to determine who wins the World Cup. And the grand prize—a total purse of $100,000 in prizes—let’s just say you’ve never had a chance to win something like this!
The summer of 2011 marks the first time we’ll offer Continental Championships in North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia! Everyone is invited to play. Top finishers will win tens of thousands of dollars in prizes over the weekend, as well as an invite to play in the World Championship. Each Continental Championship weekend will also host a Darkmoon Faire main event and side events.
Amsterdam! Cryptozoic is taking you to the Netherlands for the 2011 World Championship. We’re providing over $250,000 cash (€ equivalent), and $50,000 to our World Champion. Buy a car or a house. This is life-changing money! It’s the biggest tournament of the year, and Cryptozoic will provide many ways for players to qualify. It’s a party and we want you with us in Amsterdam. Compete in the World Champoinship, Darkmoon Faire main event, or side events: we’re going to end 2011 with a blast!
