EMPIRES & PUZZLES
Hero Reports (LEADERBOARD) | Data Extracted:01/30/2019
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 including Legendary Heroes as including Epic would make for a long list and not really provide any insight.
3) Top 5 Alliances Defined as the Alliances with the most # of members present in the Top-100 during a RADOM collection date and time! If the number of members present is a tie, it's sorted by Alliance name alphabetically (This method identifies the more active LEADERBOARD participants for the period).
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 setie).
7) ***NOTICE*** HERO GRADE/GPA CHANGE - This is now available within the review itself using a visual excerpt from the Hero Utility.
8) Top-100 EPIC Hero Appearances - It is VERY UNLIKELY that there is data in this extract anymore (or very rare).
In regards to Rare Heroes - they will never be found in the LEADERBOARD data. There are enough players with a fully ascended Legendary team.
It is becoming more and more rare that EPICS's are included in these teams.
The Period in Review: Jan 17 - Jan 31
The continued increase in team variant positioning is significant. The pool of acceptable 'substitute' Heroes for their long-term counter-parts of the Top-5 has expanded.
Changes have been evolving for the last several data extractions. There have been back to back lows in the Top-5 and a drop even in Gravemaker's numbers.
TROPHY RANGE: 2,694 to 2,950 (the lower bound moves up and the higher down)
TROOP RANGE (MIN*): 01 to 30 (Avg 13.20 up .17 of 1%)
TROOP RANGE (MAX): 11 to 30 (Avg 19.37 up .63 of 1%)
PLAYER LEVEL RANGE: 41 to 78 (Avg 54.39)
TALENT LEVEL HEROES: 10.6% were at level 1 (Over 50% were Gravemaker) only 2 were at level 2.
*Measuring min range as there are a good amount of stacked element teams. Troops for most players, currently have high degrees of maturity variation levels.

Player: uclapack of Crystal Palace ties Zero of 7DD
Present: 14 of 24 (58%)
This week: uclapack 2,845 Ranked 7th | Zero - Wasn't present in the data
THE FIRST EVER - DETHRONING of the Top 5!
SARTANA DROPS to Drake Fong... This can be attributed to: Victor, Kage, Panther and Hel as suitable if not better substitutes for THE ULTIMATES position of DARK within a RAINBOW team.
Zimkitha is only 1 use from Drakes position in THE ULTIMATES! A very strong showing and rebound! Players are experimenting a lot now that the playing field is becoming a little more even.
Evelyn makes her DEBUT @ #15 this week... This fast hit 3 is making it onto a lot of teams!
3,269 remains the HIGHEST OF ALL TIME (TROPHY COUNT SCORE in regards to v17/18 of the game). Set by Crystal Palace's JimMayehem approximately 1/10/19.
uclapack of Crystal Palace ties Zero of 7DD for TM's User Group Appearances in the Top-100 since July 2018.
20 Different Heroes had a Talent Applied (Rigard and Wilbur included for the EPIC's) in this data set.
This period sets the record for the largest mix of heroes appearing in the Top 100 players deck to the tune of 62!
This Periods TANKS
BOSS WOLF? RICHARD?
Granted use of heroes other than Guinevere and Gravemaker drops significantly...SIGNIFIGANTLY!
Yet here they are...in use order from left to right.
THE ULTIMATES: The Top 5
GRAVEMAKER remains the undisputed "KING of the HILL" for 23 weeks Running - nearly doubling use % over any other Hero in the game.
#1 Gravemaker in 64 of the Top-100 (14.60%|500) down 4 uses and duplicate use up from 8 to 9 this period.
#2 Alasie in 41 of the Top-100 (8.60%|500) up 4 uses and 2 duplicates, moves up 1 position
#3 Zeline in 39 of the Top-100 (7.80%|500) up 10 uses, moves up 2 positions
#4 Guinevere in 36 of the Top-100 (7.20%|500) down 5 uses, moves down 2 positions
#5 Drake Fong in 19 of the Top-100 (3.80%|500) making his debut in THE ULTIMATES - the first to step into it since data sampling began 7/29/2018.
THE UNDISPUTED TOP 5 LOSES 1 of its Members. IT FINALLY HAPPENED!
While use % remains fairly steady for the other unchecked 4 members of the Top 5...
Sartana who had set her record lowest use @ 5.8% in the pool of 500 heroes on 11/24/18 and 01/06/19 ends up dropping well below this low to a low low of 3.20%.
THE ULTIMATES set a record low use @ 40% this period. This is the 3rd consecutive drop (this being 2.6% and previously 4%).
THE CONTENDERS: Top 6-10
ZIM is BACK for the ATTACK! She worked things out via training with AZLAR. She could very well be a member of the shaken ULTIMATES very soon (only 1 use behind Drake).
#6 Zimkitha in 18 of the Top-100 (3.60%|500) hear me Roar!
#7 Sartana in 16 of the Top-100 (3.20%|500) down 13 uses and 3 positions.
#8 Lianna in 14 of the Top-100 (2.80%|500) down 8 uses and 1 position.
#9 Magni in 13 of the Top-100 (2.60%|500) down 9 uses and 3 positions.
#9 Victor in 13 of the Top-100 (2.60%|500) up 1 use and 3 positions.
THE RISING: Top 11-15
The Darkness maintains it's the Element! Knowing that 3 stay and 3 are very nearby... Fire's movement "doesn't bother them" states spokeswoman Khiona.
#11 Khiona in 12 of the Top-100 (2.40%|500) down 1 use and 1 position
#11 Delilah in 12 of the Top-100 (2.40%|500) up 1 use and 2 positions
#11 Alberich in 12 of the Top-100 (2.40%|500) down 2 uses and 2 positions
#11 Marjana in 12 of the Top-100 (2.40%|500) back on the board!
#15 Evelyn in 11 of the Top-100 (2.20%|500) MAKING HER DEBUT @ #15!

RAZOR's EDGE2 (Rarity/All)
Hello all - I know that I publicly talked about this potential change in the RaZoR's EDge. 2 figures are now displayed within the previous space. I dropped the Hash Tag (#) and separated the figures by a 'Forward Slash' /. The image and the highlights should make everything very clear. The left figure is calculated by using the specific hero’s in that heroes rarity, the right figure is the previous figure where Rare, Epic and Legendary heroes are compared together due to cross over with attack, defense and health. Where the most significant observations will be made is with the Rare and Epic Heroes. For example, Gunnar who is in the middle of Ares and Athena in the image below:
Previously users saw Gunnar's Defense Rank as #73. However within his own 'Rare' Rarity his Defense Rank is #1.I have color coded several additional examples in the image below just so you can get the jist of the 2 figures and how having them both can be much more beneficial!
