It has been awhile since we heard much news on <A HREF="http://entertainment.upperdeck.com/wow/">World of WarCraft: The Trading Card Game</a> from UDE. However, the guys over at <A HREF="http://www.gamingreport.com/">GamingReport.com</A> have a <A HREF="http://www.gamingreport.com/article.php?sid=20590">new preview</a> which goes over a few aspects of the game (in particular, the "Raid Deck" part) and goes into a bit of Q&A with the developers. It's a very nice read.

They also have a <A HREF="http://www.gamingreport.com/gallery/v/gamatradeshows/gts2006/games/cardgames/World+of+Warcraft/">series of snapshots</a> which show off some of the art and packaging on the cards which was apparently shown at the GTS 2006 trade show. Thanks to Smeedle for the heads up on this.

Read it and while I probably won't be buying any considering I already wasted hundreds of dollars on all the other card game fads, although I'm probably one of the few in my area who'd even consider buying these.

If I did though it'd be for the scratch-off cards to get shit in WoW( if they were decent items and not just generic blues) and for the artwork and genuine novelty of having them, I still value my MTG collection, unlike my hordes of stupid pokemon and yu-gi-oh cards...ugh..

My friends loved Pokemon back in the day, and I fortunately didn't get sucked into the whole card thing until after we switched to the slightly less screwed up M:TG game. I think they still pull out their cards every once in awhile and have a few games, so hopefully those few who still play will switch over to Warcraft.

From what I've read, they're all going to be cosmetic and noncombat items. If they give ANY stat bonuses, it'll be trivial.

If they give me something to transform into a Murloc or Make me look undead(with my gear on) I will buy shitloads of packs to try and get it.
