Current Top 10 Empires & Puzzles Defense Heroes
At 1500 hours UK time, on 26th Sept 2021, I reviewed the top 50 Empires and Puzzles Defense teams. Based on the data, here are the Top 10 E&P Heroes:
10. Prof. Lidenbrock
Cobalt sits just off this list at #12. While Xnolphod, a notable new Season 4 Hero, resides at #16.
Leave your opinion of the current Top 10 in the comments below!
P2P Tower Of Magic Final Stages Paywall (Empires and Puzzles Mag)
Last week, it became apparent that if you wanted to complete the Impossible levels of the Magic Tower, you’d have to use some gems. Many claimed this was evidence of a growing gap between F2P and P2P.
For my part, I didn’t complete the Tower because it was just too much of a grind. That means this situation didn’t affect me at all.
Still, I’m not surprised, because Empires and Puzzles is a business first and foremost. It is the objective of every business to maximise profits. To that end, I imagine SG wanted to experiment with the idea, and that they’ll now review the data and community opinion.
Limiting other Events/Quests in this way, especially with my personal favourites, would be a shame. And I hope it doesn’t happen.
At the end of the day, most Gamers will seek enjoyment at minimal expense, while developers will seek to learn exactly what ‘minimal expense’ means to their users.
We’ll see where it goes from here, but I remain positive.
On the flip side, if SG sat on their laurels, the game would fizzle out… It’s all about balance.
Is Everyone playing Mono Raiding Teams now?
Everywhere I look, I’m seeing Mono Raid teams. ~Which isn’t what I was expecting.
When I review new Heroes (here), I’m working off the idea that most people are playing 3/2 or a variation thereof. It’s the reason I didn’t rate Sergei too highly or Alexandrine for that matter. I saw them both as specialists; more useful for Titans & Stages.
But if you’re running a Mono Purple Raid Team and you see Sergei’s Tier-1 Special, you’ll rightly think he’s the best thing since sliced bread.
Anyway, I’d love your input: Are you running a Mono Raid Team? If so Why? And is it for every Raid, or just occasionally?
This isn’t a challenge. I play for fun and don’t claim to have the right answer. I’m only interested so I can bear it in mind with my reviews and other content.
I Pulled Alexandrine… Is she better now I have her?
Oh yeah, I pulled Alexandrine. She will get levelled and she will get played.
She looks great, a 5-Star blue healer. I’ll let you know how I get on.
Clash Of Knights, Alliance event (Empires and Puzzles Mag)
I’m sure you’ve seen the big new alliance event on the horizon; Clash Of Knights. It looks fantastic and I’m saving my gems for it.
I haven’t reviewed any of the Heroes yet, but it’s next on my to-do list. I did catch something on Social Media, one of the new Heroes who looks awesome:
The Hero I’m referring to is called Esme. Here’s her Special:
- Destroys all Fiends from all allies
- Recovers 40% health for all allies
- If an ally had Fiends they will be immune to new Fiends for 4 turns
Esme is a 5-Star, Average speed, Ice (Blue) Hero. And will be the first able to remove Fiends.
From what I see, Clash Of Knights will be with us early to mid-October. ~And my review/guide will be up within the next week.
