UDE terminated. Forums shut down.

Post  Kusig on Thu Mar 11, 2010 2:27 pm

Upper Deck Entertainment is now closed and all employees terminated. The forums have been closed and are no longer functional. Therefore Critshappen.com has just become the GO TO place for WoW minis.

Mr. Shadestep here and I figured that I'd come out of the shadows long enough to give Steelwing a big gnomish salute for hosting this minis refuge. Back to the shadows for me though.... Suspect

Indeed, it is a bittersweet day. As much as I hate UDE for what they did to minis, I've spent almost two years now checking wowminis.com multiple times a day. It's strange to think that I won't be going back there...

That said, I'm happy to make Crits Happen my new home, and I'd like to give a big thank you to Steelwing for being such a fantastic host.

As you all may or may not be aware, there is now an official Blizzard TCG forum at worldofwarcraft.com (no word on minis yet). Since I know not everyone has a wow account, if you ever have any concerns that you'd like voiced on the forums, please don't hesitate to PM me and I'll use mah wow accout skilz to post them up there for you.

Here's to the continuation of the greatest game ever, WoW Minis!

Update on UDE

Post  Tigersclaw on Mon Mar 15, 2010 5:30 am

UDE Entertainment hasn't apparently shut down. It's "restructuring".

They're also not firing people. They're thanking them for their services. Wink Gotta love corpspeak.

Basically they lost their two biggest licenses in a very short time. I don't think they need a lot more people working on PlayMarvel and Hello Kitty TCGs than they already had, so they let go of all the extra people. Nothing surprising.

They *might* still have a couple people working on future projects. Depending how large that part of the business is would decide whether they're phasing out of gaming entirely (maintaining staff for their current games but not planning on doing any new ones).

Well, at this point, I would unfortunately have to say that what happens to UDE won't affect us at all.


I just hope some of the UDE employees I met in my time playing minis are doing fine. Especially the guys at the Upper Deck Store in So Cal.

I believe that UDE's demise might jeopardize my getting the money they owe me and some of the other guys, though Blizzard has come forward and said we'll get our due somehow...

Apart from that I don't really give a toss.

Thanks for hosting this over here. It already feels more like home than those horrible UDE boards ever did. Very Happy

You need a Teh before your name.

"You guys can put anything you like, as long as it pertains to the minis game,"

Then how did a 'Huntre' get into this mix? I'm just saying! scratch

In all seriousness though... welcome to our new home! I'm going back to (hide in) my shadows now... Suspect

Hah, I try to, I actually play Street Fighter 4 competitively now. Infinitely harder and infinitely less money to make, but it's a lot of fun.

I saw that you took a DMF and 2nd place? at Nats. Grats man, I don't feel nearly so bad about you destroying me at Realms now!

Sending you a PM.

3rd place at Worlds, actually. Nats I forgot to flip some equipment, which isn't helpful when playing Velen Wall! Glad that makes you feel better. I can promise you could kick my ass at Street Fighter any time of the day.

I'm horrible at fighter games! Only thing I'm OK at is pikachu in Super Smash Bros for the nintendo 64, but I never use the blocking skills; I prefer to jump and run away.

Nice to see that at least a part of the minis community has a home elsewhere...I didn't post much on the old forums at UDE, so expect me to just lurk here and repeatedly ask if you can stand on pets.

Now let's see if Blizz actually carries on with the minis....specifically Onyxia and SoV.
