Blizzard Entertainment has announced the availability of the Mohawk Grenade, and to do so unveiled a new TV Commercial with Mr. T — who curiously is wearing a J!NX Murloc Taco T-Shirt. Upper Deck and J!NX to lure people to World of Warcraft? A picture in my mind shows Paul Sams smiling with a shiny gold tooth. Now that’s marketing strategy at its best.

The Upper Deck Senior Director Scott Gaeta addressed fans at the official UDE forum to debunk rumors that the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game (WoW TCG) is nearing its impending demise after the ScourgeWar set (On sale November 22, 2009). The rumor caught momentum when the site claiming the demise said the buzz came from a reliable source. No wonder, the Senior Director emerged to squash the bugger.
Gaeta revealed their team visited the Blizzard Entertainment offices in Irvine to discuss their 2011 plans for the WoW TCG, and as UDE informed a few weeks ago, they announced a schedule list for 2010. The WoW TCG license is stronger than ever and to stay. The past weeks UDE has thrown the house through the window with spectacular WoW TCG Tournaments. Precisely yesterday and today UDE held the 2009 Season 4 WoW TCG and Mini Realm Championship with up to $500,000 in prizes.
That looks pretty strong for a TCG line nearing its demise …

North Las Vegas, NV (Sept. 18, 2009) – On Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12 and 13, Upper Deck International hosted its World of Warcraft® Trading Card Game Darkmoon Faire in Amsterdam, and the result was the biggest Upper Deck World of Warcraft® Darkmoon Faire event ever! With more than 3,000 visitors gathering at the Westerpark Gasfactory, event organizers were ecstatic by the turnout.
′As the last European Darkmoon Faire of 2009, we were expecting Amsterdam to be a bigger event than usual, but we never expected it to be this big,″ said Carl Crook, Upper Deck International's Organized Play Manager. ′We are very excited that the game has been able to draw so much attention.″
As curious onlookers approached the venue, you couldn't help but notice the demonstration queue spilling out onto the sidewalk, and Upper Deck's volunteer staff was kept busy all weekend long performing demonstrations for more 2,000 inquisitive visitors. Many of the new players stayed on to participate in the beginners' tournaments using one of the free Starter Decks they each received. Visitors were also given an opportunity to expand their World of Warcraft® TCG collection by the on-site vendor, who accommodated consumers by taking orders after selling out of all event stock by noon on Saturday.
A total of 21 different countries were represented by the 222 players who took part in the main World of Warcraft TCG tournament, while the online competition drew 12 times as many players as the usual number of Darkmoon Faire participants. The result was additional tournaments being added throughout the weekend to accommodate the high volume.
The next major World of Warcraft® TCG event that's scheduled is the World Championships, which will take place in Austin, Texas, from Thursday, October 8, through Sunday, October 11. The next Darkmoon Faire event will be held in Las Vegas on December 4 through 6. Both the World Championships and the DMF Las Vegas happenings are open to the public.
