Hero Reports (LEADERBOARD) | Data Extracted:08/25/2018

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 and extend the statistical data reporting - much will be revealed over time as it is immediately. We realize this isn't 100% accurate and sampling times will vary. The data is very revealing never the less and we are enjoying doing it for now.

1) Top 15 Used Heroes (This does include duplicates on a team) Note: The D_Overall = the Defensive Grade.
2) 5 Stars Not Used (Not including 4*s because so few are used. In this set Boldtusk, Melendor, Rigard and Sabina all appeared 1x)
3) Top 5 Alliances (We sort them by Alliance name so only 1 is recognized if there is a duplicate at #5)
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.
7) Which Heroes Had A GPA Change This identifies all Heroes who's Grading has improved or declined since the last data pull.

Empires & Puzzles - Which Heroes Had A GPA Change

As of 8/12/2018 we have added the Rare Heroes to the Hero Utility. Understand that our LEADERBOARD Statistics are pulled from the Top 100 LEADERBOARD teams so Rare heroes will never contain this section of the data. This is true of the Epic heroes as well (I mention those that appear in report definition 2). As of this time there are enough long term players of the game that they have a full 5 star team. p.s. I remember when having Boldtusk as your front man was GOLDEN!

The WEEK in Review: August 19-25, 2018

Gravemaker stays in the #1 Spot in the LEADERBOARD Ranks. That makes it 4 in a row for Gravy as well a 2% increase over any prior import sample. NOTE: There were NO hero grading changes between this and the last data import.

This particular combination has continued to outshine all others, maintaining around 50% of the LEADERBOARD use market of the Top 100 players.

Sartana dips to her lowest percent use since this data sampling began. Alberich has been consistent in walking in her footsteps. Magni and Delilah are the runner ups thereafter.

If you review the heat map below you will see that Gravemakers Use grew during this import and EVERYONE ELSE dropped in use.

The 'Boss' showed up... Again!

Of the 6 Legendary heroes who received a 'balance change' from the Dev's back on 8/14/2018, only one truly improves this week. 'Boss Wolf'. He had been completely absent from the 1st 3 data extractions. On the 4th following the announcement he appeared in the Top 100 lineup 3 times.

This week he stepped it up a notch showing up 5 times @ the Center position. Those who own him must be pleased with the buff. To revisit: his special/satus effects increased in duration from 3 to 4 turns, and an increase of enemey mana reduction from -24% to -34%. This was certainly the most signifigant of the 'balancing' efforts that SGG's made from my perspective, and it is looking promising for some of the Legendary Wolf's owners.

Boss Wolf Improvement

I realize Delilah, Aeron, Zeline, Alberich, Marjana and Ares have been showing up in the center role regularly/occasionally based on data collection. Of them Ares would be my choice.

Regardless we need another dependable tank in the game other than Guinevere and Gravemaker (whos most successful in the flank position anyway). GL - Boss man!

The Creature from the LAGOON...

Whoa! Surprised to see her in the data already, Fully ascended in a day!

Misandra looks pretty tough, I'm pretty sure we will be seeing a lot of her in the next few months....

So who had any idea that the Atlantis Summons was going to disappear for a month!??

Glad I was on my game and pulled everyone’s cards right away! They are permanently available in the Hero Utility.

Empires & Puzzles FAMILY LINK - Reference

Hey Titan Slayers! The Family Link power is unique to the Season 2 Atlantis Heroes! All 17 of them!

There are some slight discrepancies in regards to one’s ability to combine family members i.e. being that The LAGOON FAMILY has 7 members while The SAKURA FAMILY and ATLANTIS FAMILY only have 5 family members each.

In the later cases, odds are not as promising… then again the LAGOON FAMILY’s 2 extra heroes are the 5*s (the only ones in the Atlantis Heroes), so availability of even receiving them may even out the odds. We will see.

This is a fairly Large image file so that you can see the thumb nail Hero pics (and clearly identify who the 5/4/3 stars are - or as E&P refers to it (‘Rarity’) and their Element. I ordered the Family's Heroes by Rarity then alphabetically by their name. You can click the image to enlarge it/save it.

Empires & Puzzles Atlantis Family Link Quick Reference

This Quick visual reference was put together with Roxy's assistance - Thanks Roxy!

The Hero Utility is ATLANTIS Ready!

TITAN MAFIA! Let me know what you think so far about Season 2. Pros/Cons. The only hickup for me so far is the game froze when I completed province 1. Was able to end the app and its working again now!

ROXY picked up the following while they were available to be summoned: Proteus, Gobbler and Agwe (all 4 stars). She is leaning toward leveling Gobbler.
