Welcome, welcome, welcome. Now, I don’t wanna waste your time, so I’m not gonna write some long-winded opening dialog that no one’s interested in.
Instead, I’m gonna focus on E&P and ask the most pressing question I can:
What (if any) impact did the Winter Nerf have on the Defense List?
“Hey, Old Cynic!… wait a sec…. please man, just one sec… I mean, I really wanna know… What’s Nose Cleavage?”
No – no! Not this time! I won’t do it. Let’s jump straight into our Empires and Puzzles February Agenda:
AGENDA (Empires and Puzzle Magazine)
1. Top 10 E&P Defense Heroes (updated as per)
2. New Empires and Puzzles Quiz!

Current Top 10 Empires & Puzzles Defense Heroes
On the morning of 26th February 2022, instead of walking the dog, I reviewed the top 50 Empires and Puzzles Defense teams. Based on that data, here are the Top 10 E&P Defense heroes:
8. Quenell ☆ (7 appearances)
8. Mr. Pengi ↓6 (7)
8. Ludwig ☆ (7)
7. Wolfgang ☆ (9)
5. Morel ☆ (10)
5. Bera ↑5 (10)
4. Krampus ☆ (11)
2. Frigg ↑4 (14)
2. Xnolphod – (14)
1. Elizabeth ↑3 (15)
Here’s last month’s list:
Empires & Puzzles Top Defenses
It was clear while compiling this list, just how much more diversity was on display.
Last month’s No. 1, Costumed Krampus, appeared a staggering 34 times in January. Whereas today, Elizabeth (this month’s No. 1), only needed 15 appearances to bag that same spot.
And for the record, Costumed Krampus has now officially dropped out of the Top 10, and can be found languishing just outside it, with only 5 appearances (5 too many?).
Moving on and we can see, all the Christmas heroes have lost ground, with only two appearing inside of the Top 10 (Krampus & Mr. Pengi), compared with the 5 we saw last month.
It does come as somewhat of a surprise to me, to see C. Mother North benched by so many players. But I guess with the Minion nerf, and the loss of synergy, she was finding it too difficult to keep her corner spot (she only appeared 5 times this month).
Xnolphod, once again, is close to fulfilling his full potential. Nearly, nearly.
But, what you don’t see, is Ferant, the 4-Star hero. He’s busy chasing down the pack, and leading the charge for 11th place. He appeared a total of 6 times this month (up from 2, previously).
He’s the only 4-Star hero, I can ever recall, even coming close to the Top 10 Defense Heroes List.
What’s your take on the changes we’ve seen this month?
New Empires and Puzzles Quiz
I wanted to make these monthly updates feel more like a Magazine, and the introduction of a Quiz seems like a good idea.
This creates 2 solid features each month (the Defense Heroes List and now, a Quiz), and if/when there is News, well, that can be added on top, too.
Here’s how the E&P Quiz will work:
- There are 10 Empires and Puzzles questions
- You answer as many as you can in the comment section below
- But, you don’t need to write out the questions, just the answers next to the question number, so:
1. Devana. 2. Etc. 3. Etc.
And after you’ve committed to your answers, you can check if you were right on the quiz answers page.
Remember, cheating is only cheating yourself… Here we go!
Old Cynic’s Empires and Puzzles Quiz
1: Which 3-Star hero has this in his Special? ‘Summons a Bee Minion for each ally.’
2: Which Family is Fenrir a part of?
3: How many Ducks routinely fly past the Castle?
4: What Class of hero has up to a 30% chance of reviving with 1 HP?
5: How many turns does Costumed Krampus taunt for?
6: What is ‘Double-Tapping’, and is it OK?
7: What does the DRAGON BANNER do?
8: Which 5-Star hero has this in her Special? ‘The target and nearby enemies can’t gain mana for 3 turns.’
9: How long is a standard Titan battle?
10: How many tiles are on the game-board?
If lots of people get the right answers, I’ll make it more difficult next month (assuming people play & want more!).
