Hero Reports (LEADERBOARD) | Data Extracted:11/03/2018

We freeze the Top 100 LEADERBOARD Teams at a given interval and collect their information through Empires & Puzzles interface and place it in a data store. We understand that ranks can shift some during collection - still an excellent sample. Data Sampling will occur on regular basis (day) at a random time.

1) Top 15 Used Heroes (This does include duplicates on a team) D = Defensive Grade. O = Offensive Grade. GPAb = GPA Blend of the D + O.
2) 5 Stars Not Used Only incuding Legendary Heroes as including Epic would make for a long list and not really provide any insight.
3) Top 5 Alliances (We sort them by Alliance name so only 1 is recognized if there is a duplicate at #5 for the current week)
4) Most Duplicated Hero (A Hero gets 1 'vote' for each instance they are included 2 or more times on a players LEADERBOARD team)
5) Hero Pos Top 5 (ea Type) This adds the Left/Right Rear positions together, the Left/Right Flank positions together, and the Stand alone Center position. The Report then identifies the Top 5 for these 3 sets of data.
6) Hero Pos Top 5 (multi Type) This includes the Top 5 Heroes being used in more than one position - by the total in all Positions (so a True Top-5 Hero could be replaced in this data set).
7) Which Heroes Had A Grade/GPA Change This identifies all Heroes who's Grading has improved or declined since the last data pull (Red=Decline, Green=Increase, Yellow=Just used as filler to identify the change lines).
8) Top-100 EPIC Hero Appearances

In regards to Rare Heroes - understand that our LEADERBOARD Statistics are pulled from the Top 100 LEADERBOARD teams so Rare heroes will never contain this section of the data. As of this time there are enough long term players of the game that they have a full 5 star team. This is true for the most part in regards to Epic Heroes as well - those that do appear - consider likely special (Kiril is one such Hero that has life after a players move into the Legendary player realm (for special purposes at a minimum). These Epic heroes are in report 8.

The WEEK in Review: Oct 27 - Nov 3

Top-100 LEADERBOARD trophy count ranges: 2,624 up to 3,015 (a lower bottom and equivalent top to last week).

Delilah and Drake aren't so Holy this week slipping backwards into the RISING group joining Fellow Joon.

Lianna and Guardian Panther move up into the Contenders.

Khiona and Aeron hang tough in the RISING group.

Khiona's 2nd week in the top 15!

Gravemaker's record breaking stops today.

Athena's 3nd Week as a No Show. Expectations were we were going to see her and Natalya due to re-release.

Must have been because ATHENA was BEING CROWNED QUEEN OF E&P - 2018! ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!!

The beautiful NATALYA was also participating in the grueling 3 day contest, losing by a mere 3% of the votes. She held the lead many times throughout the contest and came in with the most significant margins of victory against opponents (winning over 75% of the voters more than once). Special Recognition certainly in order for this Woman who nearly became our Queen!

Hel drops 1 spot to #9 - continuing to make a strong showing for being one of the best!

Crystal Palace makes the move to take 1st place from 7DD this week.

The Top-5 team ties their highest pool use of 56%!

NATALYA so close! We will see you next year for another opportunity, you had an amazing run.

Special note 2 - Natalya and Athena share the same Blended GPA @3.45.

Only 2 Epic Heroes show up in the Top-100 teams this week - Kiril and Rigard.

A large list of Legendary Heroes sit out again this week. See Report 2) 5 Stars Not Used.

NO Grading Changes this Week.
Zimkitha HOTM-18

So no Changes but a huge addition...Z hits the streets and she is on FIRE. She enters the game as the 18th Hero of the Month! I heard through the FIRE-LINE that She is Azlar's Daughter. The story is/was Azlar is the LAST OF HIS KIND! Were this true, it would make complete sense HE would keep his daughters existence a secret. Curious if this will somehow interject some drama into the game?


#1 Gravemaker in 82 of the Top-100 (18.00%|500). He extends his consecutive WIN streak to 14 in a row at #1.
The Record setting streak ends for Gravemaker this week. Drops duplicate use from his high of 11 to 8.

#2 Guinevere in 58 of the Top-100 (11.60%|500) - moving up 2 spots from last week in to the rarer 2 position for her.

#3 Alasie in 53 of the Top-100 (11.00%|500) - including 2 duplicate uses.

#4 Zeline in 40 of the Top-100 (8.00%|500) - down from last week.

#5 Sartana in 37 of the Top-100 (7.40%|500) - remains in the bottom of the Top-5 with a slight increase.

This Top-5 team TIES the record for highest use @ 56% in the pool of 500 heroes set on 10/13/18.

Gravemaker holds the record for highest use @ 18.60% in the pool of 500 heroes set on 10/27/18.
Guinevere holds the record for lowest use @ 6.8% in the pool of 500 heroes set on 9/29/18.
This Top-5 team holds the record for highest use @ 56% in the pool of 500 heroes set on 10/13/18 and matched on 11/03/18.
NEVER has any of the Top 5 stepped outside of the Top 5 since data sampling began.
