Electric current Superlative 10 Empires & Puzzles Defence Heroes

On 22nd October 2021, I reviewed the top 50 Empires and Puzzles Defence teams. Based on the data, here are the Peak ten E&P Defense heroes:



Krampus ↑i

Bera –

C.Kadilen –

Hannah ↓1

Frigg ↓3

Morel ↑ii

Odin ↑1

Elizabeth ↑one

Here’southward last month’southward list:

Prof. Lidenbrock

Where, oh where, is our Beloved Sif?
She’southward now 19th, and likely to exist dropping fast.

Not much unexpected otherwise. A slight re-shuffle of the elevation iv?

For the record, Gravemaker is in at #12, Cristobal is at #xvi, and Wolfgang is at #20.

What’s your opinion?

The Double, and Reverse Double, Germination Nerf (E&P Mag)

This month saw the nerfing of the Double, and the Reverse Double, formations.

Basically, heroes who would normally only effect nearby allies, like Brynhild, were able to effect all allies, if placed equally Tank in those formations.

This also went the other way, with heroes who hit 3 enemies, beingness able to assail the unabridged enemy squad, if the Defense was in 1 of those formations.

This modify has no incertitude acquired a re-shuffle across E&P. In my case, Brynhild has lost all of her Emblems, and the privileges which went along with them. She’southward also been demoted to the bench… indefinitely.

In my recent review of Ludwig, I suggested that he was the reason for the nerf. And, I suspect we’ll see more heroes simply like him, who are super-powerful, but simply local.

I thought it would be fun to list the
Acme 5 Heroes
who lost out due to the Germination nerf:

Main Lepus ↓

Hannah ↓don’t count me out

Gravemaker ↓needs a costume

Brynhild ↓retired

Sif ↓1,000

New Hero Of The Month Family Bonus (Empires and Puzzles Mag)

If you oasis’t noticed all the same, all HotM older than 2021 now have a Family unit Bonus. And, I think it’s awesome. It gives lots of old heroes a new lease of life, in today’south game.

Since the modify, I’d been playing Reuben, who felt pretty poor before. Now, he summons a small Minion for the entire marry team -at Fast. Which is pretty cool.

I’m certain there are other gems, also. And many that volition get undiscovered for awhile.

Regarding the new Family Bonuses, my first thought was: This is why they Nerfed Devana’s Chemical element Link, which increases mana. Considering, she’southward about to practise it for all allies -pretty powerful stuff.

Anyhow, here’south what nosotros have so far (taken from my Tavern of Legends guide):

2017 HotM Family Bonus

  • ane-2-three heroes from the 2017 form receive +5%, +10%, or +15% mana generation
  • Elemental Link will now
    bear on all allies,
    if you accept two HotM on the aforementioned team (this is massive)

2018 HotM Family Bonus

  • 1-ii-3 heroes from the 2018 form receive +x%, +15%, or +xx% defense
  • Elemental Link will now
    affect all allies,
    if you have 2 HotM on the same team

2019 HotM Family Bonus

  • 1-two-iii heroes from the 2019 class receive +x%, +15%, or +20% assault
  • Elemental Link will now
    affect all allies,
    if you accept two HotM on the aforementioned team

2020 HotM Family unit Bonus

  • one-ii-3 heroes from the 2020 course receive +10%, +15%, or +20% healing
  • Elemental Link will at present
    affect all allies,
    if y’all have two HotM on the aforementioned team

2021 HotM Family Bonus

  • Coming shortly – Jan 2022

What are your thoughts?

Empires and Puzzles No Spend November Protest

This month saw the promotion of
No Spend Nov,
a protest (if I’ve understood information technology correctly) designed to highlight thespian dissatisfaction over the speed at which we’re seeing new Events and new Heroes.

Popular:   League of Legends Account Generator

Likewise, thespian concerns that heroes are much stronger than their predecessors, and that there’south a general lack of resources to Level these heroes, once you’ve actually got them.

Hither’s a post I saw on social media:

Spread the word!
The meridian Eastward&P alliances are uniting for this cause.
Enough is enough SG.
two week cold-shoulder begins Oct 22nd.
#SlowDownSG #nospend #nospendnovember

Facebook post

What are my views on the outcome? Well, I tend to run into it from both sides.

As a business,
I think Due east&P are doing what they tin can to ameliorate profits. They’re searching for the upper threshold, and there’s ever a chance associated with such exploration.

That’s considering the player-base wants perceivable balance. However, I suspect SG are well aware of this, and volition have a fluid organization in place, which allows them to advance and withdraw, as required.

They will likely take analysts, advisors, and experienced members of staff, all trying to make Empires and Puzzles equally good as it can be -for the Players, and for the bottom-line.

And so from a concern point of view, I’1000 not overly concerned. It’s
pursuit that makes the game what it is. In my view, they’re testing the upper threshold, and may take made contact 😂.

From a Role player point of view
at that place’due south no dubiousness, I’d like to see more than rewards in my Chests. Information technology tin experience similar an anti-climax when you’ve worked to complete them, and only receive a footling dross.

That goes double for Elemental Chests. I’thou sure, I used to become 5-Star Ascension Mats from those in the past? Nowadays, I’m lucky if I get a Troop token.

I’thou not too fussed nigh getting the new heroes though, but if I pay, I’d like better Odds.

And that doesn’t need to hurt F2P players either; if y’all merely increase the odds of pulling, by the number of times you pull?

Over again though, I’ve received and then many free 5-Star heroes over the years, it’due south not a massive business organisation. Albeit, they’re non the Magic heroes, merely I can

As a F2P/C2P thespian, Preparation Camp 20, Chest rewards, and the odd purchase, have got me by fine.

Regarding all the new content? I like it. It adds a Freshness to the game (and too gives me something to write almost). -If the developers could add together
a little more residue (which I’m sure they volition), so I retrieve about people would be happy.

There is a power creep going on, but information technology doesn’t make a departure if it’s Ludwig receiving Malosi’south tap, or Krampus. -At my level, I’m always fighting above-my-weight-class anyhow.

… While I’thousand on the subject area: I think unique player rewards are a good thought, like a badge or symbol for your profile, if y’all manage to reach #1 in your land, or in the World.

At the end of the day,
Empires and Puzzles is 1 of the best games.
Period. I started writing about it because I needed to lean into my habit.

We all know, you lot can’t please all of the people all of the time, but hopefully, they tin satisfy the majority.

Old Carper’southward New Grading System (Empires and Puzzles Mag)

I’ve been posting hero reviews for a while now, and wanted to quantify my stance in some way.

I’1000 non much interested in precision points, but I exercise care nearly how a hero’s going to perform on the battlefield. With that in mind, and with tongue firmly in cheek, I’ve created my own hero grades.

Hopefully, you find it both useful and entertaining.

Sometime Carper’s Empires and Puzzles Blog Tips Page

At the suggestion of a subscriber, I’ve created an Empires and Puzzles tips folio.

The idea is simple enough: If you accept an Eastward&P question, I’ll give you my best opinion. Information technology’due south also designed so others tin can contribute, should they cull.

And with
that, we’ve reached the end of some other month’s roundup.

Before you go, I wanted to thank everybody who reads this web log. I really appreciate it.

I look forward to your comments!
