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.
