WoW TCG Release Dates Shift: Feast of Winter Veil and March of the Legion in November, Maghteridon's Lair Delayed

Upper Deck has reshuffled some release dates for their upcoming products. Once again another Raid Deck is delayed as Magtheridon’s Lair silently slips it’s scheduled release until January 2008.

It’s a bummer for sure - not the end of the world but our eyelid still twitches in frustration. This “announcement” comes buried in the Upper Deck forums with no news on the official website news page, nor an article or a press release. So, last night we begrudgingly dusted off The Molten Core and attempted to rerun it with our alternates. We got smoked, so we have set a goal for ourselves to accomplish and that should keep us busy for the next few months.

We’re sorry to say that some stores don’t know the raid has been delayed and still list the expansion as either an October 2007 / November 2007 release, probably because they don't read the forums. And why should they? Upper Deck should be responsible and let the anxious gaming public know what's what. Blizzard doesn't pull this stuff with their original World of Warcraft franchise, nor does Fantasy Flight games with their Warcraft board game franchise. Upper Deck - once again - looks like it needs more staff in their PR department.

Anyway, the short of it: don’t be fooled by any November release dates!

Here's the updated schedule:

  • Feast of Winter Veil: November 14th , 2007 [Amazon, Funagain]
    The time of Winter Veil is here! The friendly goblins at Smokywood Pastures have selected a wondrous variety of goodies and gifts just for you. So gather your comrades and join the feast! Opening up an entirely new dimension for the World of Warcraft TCG, The Feast of Winter Veil Collector's Set provides unique content from the beloved in-game holiday event, Winter Veil. Each set contains 10 exclusive game play promo cards, two Pet mini-cards, three World of Warcraft booster packs (Heroes of Azeroth, Through the Dark Portal, and Fires of Outland), and a Feast of Winter Veil plastic deck box
  • March of the Legion Expansion: November 21st, 2007 [Amazon, Funagain]
    From his seat upon the Throne of Kil'jaeden, Doom Lord Kazzak raises his sword and calls the fell host to battle. Infernals march from the Deathforge of Shadowmoon Valley to bolster demonic armies across the shattered realm of Outland and to crush all those who stand in their way. The Burning Crusade is upon us! This fourth expansion set for the World of Warcraft TCG introduces new sub-factions, demonic allies, and new types of powers for your Hero.
  • Magtheridon's Lair Raid Deck: January 9th, 2008 [Funagain]
    Play as the powerful pit lord Magtheridon and his minions, and defend your citadel from the foolhardy heroes who crave your treasure! Or, form a raiding party with your friends and try to defeat the deckmaster's ultra-powerful Magtheridon deck! Each Raid Deck expansion set requires players to build their raiding parties using cards from the World of Warcraft TCG.

We suppose this is better in some ways, because now we’ll have more spacing between releases so we can focus on one or the other. The next major expansion isn’t slated until March of next year so the new Magtheridon’s release date plants itself to the left of center of an otherwise cold WoW TCG void this Winter.
