The World of Warcraft 5 Year Anniversary: BattleCry was the celebration of the five years of World of Warcraft and the fifteenth anniversary of the Warcraft universe. It gave players the opportunity to show faction pride and unlock iconic Warcraft artwork through Blizzard combining thousands of player pictures into a photomosaic.


During creation
In celebration of the five-year anniversary of World of Warcraft, we’re giving members of the Horde and Alliance a chance to show their faction pride and unlock iconic Warcraft artwork in the process. Just print out the Horde or Alliance symbol, take a photo of you and/or your friends showing off your faction's emblem with pride, and then send us the picture via the submission form. Your photos will be used to gradually build a Warcraft photo mosaic, and the more photos we get, the more artwork we unlock on the website. Once the total number of submissions reaches the threshold, we’ll reveal an exclusive new piece of art in a master mosaic. Be a part of Warcraft history and submit your photo today!
Thanks to the combined effort of Warcraft players from around the world, we have reached twenty thousand submissions, and the final World of Warcraft BattleCry Mosaic has been revealed. You can now check out the complete mosaic, which can only be described by one word: epic.
Thank you to everyone who sent in their pictures to help us create a little piece of Warcraft history, and thank you to all our players around the world for your continued support. Lok'tar!
