Global Cup - Mafia Wars Limited Time Job

In celebration of the World Cup, there is a new limited time job in Mafia Wars: the Global Cup. This event is live now and runs through Tuesday night (as 12:00 AM on 6/23 is the first minute of a new day - we will see if they keep that or switch it to ending Wednesday night).


As you can see, there are three primary objectives of the Global Cup event: Master the Global Cup Job, Complete the Global Cup Collection, and complete the Winners are Grinners achievement. Here is how each one breaks down:

Master the Global Cup Job to 100%

This one is fairly straight forward. Players can choose between three jobs:


The Counterfeit the Tickets job costs 30 energy and takes 5 minutes to complete. It provides 1% mastery. In theory, by repeating this job over and over again every 5 minutes, you could master the job entirely in under 9 hours.

Jobs can drop either a collection piece or a loot piece. Here are the drops for each job:

Counterfeit the Tickets - Red Card (vehicle; 35 attack, 30 defense):


Alter the Vegas Odds: The Wall (Armor; 23 attack, 39 defense) - thanks Joe for the pic!


Fix the Global Cup: Striker (animal; 47 attack, 35 defense)

Note that we do not have much time to finish this event - today (Friday), Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. This is just under 5 full days. As a result, you will be hard pressed to finish the job on time by performing the 24 hour job. Most likely, you will need to perform the 5 minute or 8 hour job some in order to finish without spending Reward Points.

For taking the job to 100% mastery, you get the Global Cup (armor; 47 attack, 29 defense).


Complete the Global Cup Collection

There are 7 items in the Global Cup, and it works much like it has in previous limited time jobs.


English Ball - Drops from Jobs
French Ball - Drops from Jobs
Brazilian Ball - Global Cup Job (drops randomly from any of the limited time jobs)
German Ball - Global Cup Job (drops randomly from any of the limited time jobs)
Italian Ball - Drops from winning fights
Argentinean Ball - Drops from winning fights
Spanish Ball - Free gift from Mafia members

The reward for vaulting the collection is Injury Time (weapon; 38 attack, 52 defense).

Note that now you will need to get two different items collection pieces from the limited time job. Prepare to do the 5 minute job often in order to get all the necessary items in time!

Complete the Winners are Grinners Achievement

This is easy - simply vault the collection and master the job and this completes by default.

Thanks everyone for the info; the loot list is now complete.

  8. Can't seem to put people on hitlist, it says I don't have enough health even though I have over 100 health remaining. Also, still getting robbed even though properties are not ready to collect.

    Zygna your quality control sucks!

  9. i have mastered and vaulted and haven't got the achievement yet. anyone else having this issue??

    ReplyDelete
  10. yeah.. i also have the same issue.. maybe after 100% mastery we will get achievement..

    ReplyDelete
  11. If you look on the achievements list - the achievement isn't even in game atm. Figure they will add it soon, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I went to fight this morning and (in Bangkok anyway) there are TWO lists of people you can attack - a random list and a rival list.

    So many new things this week....

  13. The Global Cup is a armour not a weapon!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I got 3 French balls and 3 Brazilian balls, however not any English or German? Will they appear later?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I got 2 English and 2 German, no French or Brazilian. May be they want people to trade for the collection.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Got every balls the 1st day, alone on 1 account.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I got both the English & French balls from the Mugging job in NY, then later got both again twice in Ch 7 Bangkok. I found the 2 fighting ones in all cities.

  18. Winners are Grinners
    Earned on June 20, 2010
    Earned by mastering the Global Cup feature job and vaulting the collection

    It's definitely there now. It only showed up after I'd vaulted the collection, though that could just be coincidental timing.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I vaulted the collection and got the achievement but it said 1 of only 6 remaining...could it be that there are only a limited number of the achievements to go around?

  20. Hello, everyone. Zynga recently published this in the MW facebook page:

    "Get ready to throw down! We’ve made some cool new changes to fighting - an updated fight loot table, a dozen new items that'll drop exclusively from fights, Bangkok loot, and more are on the way. You can also battle your Goliath and increase your chances for huge rewards. Now’s the time to show off your mad fighting skills!"

    No news here, but does anyone knows what the "You can also battle your Goliath and increase your chances for huge rewards" part is?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  21. No clue on that goliath thing.. strange lol. Maybe it'll go in game soon enough.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Jack, I noticed that also. I wonder if Zynga is making it so it shows up for the people who finish the limited time achievement but doesn't penalize the ones who don't get it done? ie for them not showing up at all?

    ReplyDelete
  23. i think the special achievements only appear if you are able to get them? at least some of my friends who didn't get love hurts or lucky shot don't have them in their achievement list

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's what I noticed. I didn't get the Love Hurts or Cashing Out achievements, and they're unattainable now. They've both been dropped from my achievements list.

  30. I'm getting no balls from jobs either. Usual daily routine is use all 700 energy, then engergy pack, which is enough to level up, then 700 energy again..... but so far, not one single ball from jobs.

    Got the ones from fights, and have completed the global cup job, but only got one ball from that.

    Got the English ball frm my wishlist, but still need the French and Brazillian

  43. MWG - Is this a trading forum now? You should either create a MWG trading post or delete these annoying posts! There is an official forum for trading!

    I had to trade for over half my footballs, very poor drop rates for this I found. Didn't get a single one from the limited time jobs and only one from normal jobs. Heaps from fighting though.

  55. Wooo... Just seen the refit of the head-bar... It's sad... this refit seems to me like a children's game... I understand that Zynga might want to concentrate on another demographic, but with all the subjects in MW... Not that kind of title...
    Anyway, maybe it's just me.
