G.I. Joe: Battleground “What’s Mine is Mind” PVP Event starts tonight!

If you’re like me, you’ve kind of been enjoying the couple day break between events, and taking the opportunity to level up some characters and get teams squared away for the next big rush.  It also helps that DeNA and Mobage have been loading up on Double XP days between the events as well.

Well, the time for rest is over, and everyone’s favorite event type… PVP launches tonight!  Featuring exciting new cards for Tiger Force Beachhead and Rock n Roll…and while Beachhead looks really awesome, he’s one of those pesky Legendary cards.  Check out the event details below with some screen caps for these great looking new cards!

About the What’s Mine is Mined Event

Cobra is running strip-mine operations across the globe. What’s their goal? Cobrinium – a new super-metal that will fund their machinations for decades. Only G.I. JOE can stop them! Deploy worldwide as G.I.JOE and put an end to Cobra’s insidious ploy, or stand your ground as Cobra and teach the Joes what it means to face the enemy.

G.I. Joe: Battleground new Operation: Takedown Event has begun!

With no advanced warning, and fresh off a double XP weekend, G.I. Joe: Battleground has launched directly into a new Operation: Takedown event!  Following up on the Tiger Force vs. Python Patrol conflict from the previous event we have Rock Viper and Copperhead going up against Tiger Force Duke, with Tiger Force Flint as the ultimate Legendary reward card.

Some exciting other new recruits have joined the fray as well, featuring the awesome Toys “R” Us Python Patrol versions of SAW Viper and HEAT Viper along with the Valor Vs. Venom Python Patrol Viper!  I can’t get enough of this obscure awesomeness from DeNA and Mobage!  Check out a screen shot gallery below.

The G.I. Joe: Battleground Congo Clash event launches tonight… with TRADING!

Yes, that’s right, G.I. Joe: Battleground players…the day many of us have been waiting for has finally arrived… according to the latest press release from DeNA, Card Trading functionality will be enabled tonight with the launch of their latest event: Congo Clash!

Congo Clash will give us some brand new event cards Lamprey, Roadblock, and another Legendary card: Serpentor!

Now I’ll be right up front…  not a big fan of the Legendary cards.  I’ve been playing this game religiously and diligently since it launched, and I still enjoy it immensely, but the concept of Legendary cards which are only available to the Top 30 players of a certain event really rubs me the wrong way.  We all know these card games are developed to make money, otherwise, why do them?  But I can think of other ways to reward players for spending cash other than designing extremely exclusive cards that those of us (some of whom DO spend money on the game) can never own.  I fear it will create a divide that allows the big spenders with rosters full of Legendary cards to basically walk over the rest of us.

But time will tell how it shakes out.  I’m keeping my mind open.  Meanwhile, I still loved the Major Bludd card from the last event, and I will happily pursue Lamprey and Roadblock as they look like two really awesome cards as well.  Details about the event below.

About the Congo Clash Event

On a routine flight patrol, the Joe’s Tiger Force has discovered a Cobra power base in the depths of the Congo. Tiger Force immediately engages in a heated firefight to destroy Cobra’s energy source in the region. In response to this threat, Cobra sends out Python Patrol to turn the tide of the battle in Cobra’s favor. Will Tiger Force or Python Patrol prevail and prove they’re the kings of the jungle? And more importantly, why is Cobra operating a power base out in the middle of nowhere? Find out when you play this week’s Congo Clash event!

New Trade Feature

Trading is now available in G.I. JOE: BATTLEGROUND! Players can now trade their favorite Joe and Cobra characters with each other. Trade and build the most powerful squads or trade to complete your collection of units. It’s time to look through all of your units to see which ones you need and what you’re willing to offer other players.

New G.I. Joe: Battleground PVP Event – Nemesis Rising!

If you’re anything like me, you were wondering exactly where Nemesis Enforcer was throughout all of these recent Cobra La events in G.I. Joe: Battleground. Well, wonder no longer, as a new PVP (Player Vs. Player) event begins today, and features the one and only winged Cobra La enforcer as the first ever Legendary Rarity card.

See the full details below, including images from event cards. And how about that? Direct To Consumer Major Bludd?! Excellent. There’s been an infusion of DTC inspired cards recently, with Scrap Iron, Mutt, and Salvo, and I love seeing the obscure source material used in the game. Very cool.

DeNA’s G.I. JOE: BATTLEGROUND mobile game is launching a new Player vs. Player (PvP) event called Global Warfare: Nemesis Rising. This exciting event will run through October 4, 2013.

About the Event

With the defeat of Golobulus in Shanghai, Cobra-La’s resurgence seems to have been ground to a halt. Nemesis Enforcer has awoken but is now without a master to take orders from. Without Golobulus’s command, Nemesis Enforcer has become a wild card. As Joe and Cobra forces battle each other around the world, it has become clear that Nemesis Enforcer’s intent is showering destruction all around him until he can be subdued by a new master.

G.I. JOE: BATTLEGROUND will introduce its first legendary rarity card – Nemesis Enforcer! Battle other players and reach the very top ranks for a chance to get this powerful new unit to your squads.

G.I. Joe: Battleground Operation Takedown Event featuring Golobulus!

Our short break from G.I. Joe: Battleground events has now ended, and the awesome Cobra La story continues! So far we’ve seen Pythona and the Royal Guard…well this latest Operation: Takedown event showcases Golobulus, who is making his move to topple the world powers!

For folks who have been playing G.I. Joe: Battleground, the formula is familiar. Based off of various boss fights or rampaging boss fights, you use your reloads to battle iterations of dangerous Cobra villains (in this case Golobulus) as you navigate through a special map. Keep your eyes open for Mainframe and Stalker, as they provide massive bonuses to your attack power!

Check out a small gallery of screenshots below and fire up G.I. Joe: Battleground! Let’s take down Cobra La!

G.I. JOE: BATTLEGROUND Launches Wrath of Cobra-La Event

We’ve had a nice few day break from the whirlwind of G.I. Joe: Battleground Events, but according to DeNA, that break ends today!

It was hinted at a while ago, and today it’s official… Cobra La is back!

I love how they have built up this story over the past few events with Snake Eyes infiltrating Cobra and stealing documents, and Cobra trying to recover those documents, and now the existence of Cobra La is out in the open and its up to Falcon to stop them before it’s too late.

Wrath of Cobra-La Event Description

Thanks to the courageous efforts of Snake Eyes and other Joes, the Joes have discovered that Cobra-La did not perish as originally thought and that the threat of a Cobra-La resurgence is very real. Using data obtained from Shipwreck’s commando raid, the Joes were able to pinpoint the Cobra-La’s revival to a remote region of the Himalayan mountains. Now the Joes gather their most elite squads for an all-out assault on Cobra-La’s clandestine operation.

Are the Joes ready to face the dangers of Cobra and Cobra-La’s forces in their underground burrows and put an end to return of this ancient evil race?

Find out in this week’s event!

Still haven’t played G.I. Joe: Battleground? Give it a try this month and get SCRAP IRON!

G.I. Joe: Battleground has been around for a few months now, and the game developers continue to raise the bar, with the artwork on these characters.  This month is no different.

Each month the game offers new and different cards and incentives to “Invite” people to join.  This month that incentive is SCRAP IRON!  A long time fan favorite character, Scrap Iron appears in the artwork as depicted in his Direct to Consumer version as well as the 25th Anniversary Extreme Conditions Arctic set.  The choices of these obscure homages is just one of the reasons why this game and the artwork within are being embraced by G.I. Joe fans everywhere.

If you haven’t tried it yet, head to GIJoeBattleground.com and download it.  When you first play, you will begin a “Boot Camp” training session.  After that training session is over, it will ask for an “Invite Code”.  If you enter my Invite Code 7jhfsx you will get a free Scrap Iron card (as will I).  It’s a great incentive and the artwork here is incredible.

This only works for new players.  Thanks and enjoy the game!

G.I. Joe: Battleground launches new map, double XP and Cobra La Incoming!

The last G.I. Joe: Battleground PVP Event has been met with some pretty vocal criticisms, mostly for the perceived uneven gameplay and buggy software that appeared to permeate the entire event. Well Mobage and DeNA are doing what they can to erase bad memories with a couple of exciting announcements over night.

First of all, folks have noticed a grayed out area called the “Florida Everglades” and that grayed out area is now active, offering a wealth of more missions for both G.I. Joe and Cobra! Included in those new missions are some exciting new character cards for folks like Sneak Peek and Muskrat, and judging by the announcement image, Desert Scorpion and Recoil are in the wings as well.

To go along with the new map, G.I. Joe: Battleground is offering Double XP on all missions throughout the entire weekend, so take some time to level up your backlog of characters.

You might want to focus on levelling up the G.I. Joe side, though, as Mobage also warns us that Cobra La is coming! A new event is apparently on the horizon, and based on the shaded images, looks like we’ve got Falcon and Pythona to look forward to (among others I’m sure).

G.I. Joe: Battleground launches Shipwreck’d PVP Event!

Well, we now know where the Cobra La hint fits into the grand scheme of things with G.I. Joe: Battleground!  DeNA revealed information today about a new PVP Event launching today, featuring Cobra La and a new Epic Shipwreck card!  Check out the full details below:

Description of Shipwreck’d PvP Event

After the Joes successfully decrypted the Cobra data obtained by Snake Eyes, they learned a frightening truth. Cobra-La is still alive, active, and seething with anger and hatred for G.I. JOE. In response to this grave threat, Joe teams from around the world have scrambled to launch various assaults against known Cobra intel centers to obtain information on the whereabouts of Cobra-La. One such perilous mission involves Shipwreck and a team of commandos finding their way onto a Cobra submarine. A close quarter firefight breaks out on the sub that threatens to blow up the nuclear powered titan with all combatants still on board.

Take up a side as Joe or Cobra and fight against other Squad Leaders. Will you side with Cobra to protect Cobra-La’s nefarious plans, or will you go with the Joes to unravel and put an end Cobra-La’s comeback?
