There are two types of people in Empires and Puzzles; the Haves and the Have nots. And if you’ve just endured a proper slapping in this last Rush Tournament, there’s a good chance you’re a ‘Have not’.
What am I talking about? Treevil, of course.
Showing up to a Rush Tournament without him is like showing up to a Shootout with a wet fish.
I’m not saying Treevil needs nerfing; I just want my lunch money back.
I don’t even know what they’re trying to prove with this last Tournament, -I mean, a 3-Star Rush with no Yellows? That’s death on a plate.
Treevil must’ve been wetting himself backstage! He couldn’t wait to get out there and floss it up.

Should Treevil be Nerfed? (Empires and Puzzles)
I’m not a fan of nerfing Treevil and certainly wouldn’t want my lighthearted commentary to be seen as anything more than that.
I do like the idea of SG handing out a Treevil to every newborn player. You know, to even the playing field.
Because, like the right to learn, or the right to the Internet, surely everyone has the right to a Day 3 of the Tournament?
Failing that, and please do cover your garden tree’s ears, but maybe… and I whisper this, but maybe, we could… stump the f*#ker?
They’ve got fancy new techniques nowadays, -he needn’t feel a thing.
In fact, Treevil looks like the woken dead, a dried-up old tree captured by some evil spirit, so maybe that won’t work?
Still, I don’t like the idea of nerfing him and would rather take my losses.
Treevil Versus Faiez (Empires & Puzzles)
I was talking up Faiez ages ago, and I still really like him.
What does he do? He Boosts the health of all allies by 350, makes them immune to new Status Ailments, and issues them a +30% increase in Defense for 4 turns.
If Faiez manages to fire off, there’s hope.
And hope is a good thing, maybe the finest of things.
But let’s be honest here, that won’t always happen… enough.
With Treevil as Tank, he gets all the tiles and can keep firing to his heart’s content meanwhile, Faiez is left out there begging for a chance to shine.
But if you get there first, or near the time of Treevil’s big moment, well, it’s Blue Pill heaven all the way.
At least, until Treevil charges again.
But if you fail, you’re destined for a Red Pill dystopia, my friend.
Here’s the thing, I don’t wanna brag or nothing, but…
…I’ve been pulling down Top 1% & Top 5% in these recent Tournaments, then comes around this 3-Star Rush abomination and my win rate’s been thrown all outta whack.
I know this game’s heavily weighted on luck, but call it personal intuition, or miraculously divine insight, but I figure that big glowing tree’s got something to do with it.
He took my team for everything they had, like an energy company in times of high inflation.
They came out of those battles apologizing to me like they did something wrong!
But we’ll re-group, talk it over, and live to fight another day.
If you’re reading this guys, stay strong. ✊
Treevil Review (Empires and Puzzles)
My final thoughts:
Treevil is the most devastating 3-Star Rushy in all creation.
But I actually think it’s the low health that Rare heroes suffer from which makes him so potent. And nerfing him may well just give rise to some other tiny monster.
What do you think? Is Treevil too much trouble? Or, do you already have him and so find yourself decidedly biased? 😂
It’s a joke! However, your thoughts are most welcome.
Oh, and I have a plan for next time: I’m levelling another Faiez!
What’s your strategy?
