MEMBERS that had a Space in thier name
There was an 'EDIT' issue with login names prior to 1/17/2019 that had a space in it.
I removed the space on most of those. So as not to confuse everyone, I left the space(s) out. If you have any login issues try your user name both with or without the space(s).
Sorry about that!

Empires & Puzzles 'Hero Utility'
The utility that brings your Empires & Puzzles Hero Card Data, Hero Grades, Hero GPA's and Hero LEADERBOARD Statistics into your browser ALL at once! Access the Empires & Puzzles 'Hero Utility' to your right. Below is the TOP LEADERBOARD TEAM dating back to the first data sample on 7/29/2018 in their rightful positions. Other than shifting positions between each other (primarily the ladies) there have been very few noteworthy challenges to date.
Meet V3 - the new HERO UTILITY!
In addition to the Hero Special Skills image being added to the Summary Results, I have also included the Family Link Identification Images when applicable (Season II Atlantis Heroes)
The Period in Review: Dec 28 - Jan 06
Top-100 LEADERBOARD trophy count ranges: 2,728 up to 2,992 (slight decrease from last period).
Mother North debut's @ #12 three spots higher than Misandra's debut last week @ #15.
Misandra RISES in her 2nd week of the board from #15 to #11 - the Top of the RISING!
Santa Claus steps into the TANK position - advising us he is the true "Center" of attraction!
Richard seems to be given New Life amongst the slew of new Heroes - he is becoming more regular.
Sartana sinks once again to her all time low of 5.80%|500 - due to the increase use of Dark Heroes across the board: In particular Panther, Victor and Kageburado.
Guinevere on every other team of the Top-100 (50% use) up 17 uses and from #5 to #2!
Initial Grades for the 4 Seasons!
Onatel - matches Yunan stat for stat.
Talk about TWINNING... First time I've witnessed this occur!
There is one signifigant difference: Mana Speed.
Weighing in at #5 POWER and #5 DEFENSE w/Avg Mana Speed.
Deals 250% damage to the Target & Nearby Enemies.
The caster steals generated mana of the target and the nearby enemies over 4 turns starting low and increases every turn until on the last turn all the generated mana is stolen. This effect can't be dispelled, but gets removed if the caster dies.
Element Link recovers 4% health for all Holy allies for 6 turns. This effect can't be dispelled.
THE ULTIMATES: The Top 5
#1 Gravemaker in 75 of the Top-100 (17.40%|500). He extends his consecutive WIN streak to 21 in a row at #1. Duplicate use up from 7 to 12 this week. Is there not a single competitor who can budge him from the Throne? Gravy nearly doubles use over his counter-parts in the Top 5.
#2 Guinevere in 50 of the Top-100 (10.00%|500) up 17 uses and from #5 to #2!
#3 Zeline in 44 of the Top-100 (8.80%|500) down 1 use and one position.
#4 Alasie in 43 of the Top-100 (8.60%|500) up 4 uses, down 1 position.
#5 Sartana in 29 of the Top-100 (5.80%|500) down 6 uses, down 1 position.
THE ULTIMATES record for lowest use @ 46.6% on 12/27/18 and highest use @ 56% on 11/03/18 in the pool of 500 heroes.
Gravemaker holds the record for highest use @ 18.60% in the pool of 500 heroes set on 10/27/18.
Sartana holds the record for lowest use @ 5.8% in the pool of 500 heroes set on 11/24/18 and 01/06/19.
Magni holds the record for highest use @ 7% outside the Top-5 set on 7/29/2018.
NEVER has any of the Top 5 stepped outside of the Top 5 since data sampling began on 7/29/18.
THE CONTENDERS: Top 6-10
The Holy War is alive and well. Darkness snuffs out the Light this round! Panther scratches her way back to the Top!
#6 Guardian Panther in 21 of the Top-100 (4.60%|500) up 7 uses and into the CONTENDERS again, 2 duplicate uses.
#7 Drake Fong in 17 of the Top-100 (3.60%|500) down 4 uses, down 1 spot, + 1 dup
#8 Victor in 16 of the Top-100 (3.20%|500) back on the board after debut 3 weeks ago
#9 Hel in 15 of the Top-100 (3.00%|500) up 3 uses and up 3 spots back into the CONTNEDERS.
#10 Lianna in 13 of the Top-100 (2.60%|500) up 1 use and up 1 class, back in the CONTENDERS.
THE RISING: Top 11-15
Misandra makes her Move! Rising to the top of the RISING in her 2nd week on the board.
#11 Misandra in 11 of the Top-100 (2.20%|500) up 1 use and up 4 spots to the TOP of the RISING!
#12 Mother North in 10 of the Top-100 (2.00%|500) making her DEBUT @ #12!
#12 Delilah in 10 of the Top-100 (2.00%|500) down 5 uses and down 5 spots.
#14 Marjana in 9 of the Top-100 (1.80%|500) down 2 uses drops 2 spots.
#14 Joon in 9 of the Top-100 (1.80%|500) makes it back on the board, welcome back J.
#14 Magni in 9 of the Top-100 (1.80%|500) drops 5 uses and down 5 spots.
#14 Khiona in 9 of the Top-100 (1.80%|500) makes it back on the board, welcome back K.

TITAN of TOON! Entry by @NAKA
RaZoR Reaches #1: Reflection
January 8, 2019. 3,083 Trophies.
I made the decison to get the #1 spot over the past 3 weeks. King of the Hill for 6+ hours on 2 different occasions today.
Staying on TOP of Crystal Palace, Seven Days Departed, Blazing Dawn, Seven Days Fermented, Ritual, Seven Days Reborn, Crystal Assasins etc.
Trading top spots with the same - PicklesXJ of Ares Acolytes (Hey Pickles) was my most competative bout for #1 lasting several hours.
What's BS about this is there is no HIGH SCORE to shoot for? To be continued... or maybe not.
I play Russian Roulette everyday... a man's sport.
It became the TO BE CONTINUED VERSION... I started investigating this in early December 2018. I have personally seen the score in 3,1XX - just not rising to 3,200 yet - I believe that is possible, but I have not seen it.
You can’t raid someone less than 300 trophies below you, so you’ll run out of opponents. That is when you receive the 'No Opponents Found' message.
Anyway. Tonight (1/17/19) I would have broke 3,100. However at the request of a undisclosed player I whacked @Heretic whom revenged me the instant I would have achieved it!
Special Congratulations to @RoXy of TITAN MAFIA whom made it to position #2 while I was on my long stance @ the Top!
So following is my proof - I have my High actually recorded. These were taken over January 08-09 and January 17th of 2019. I tried to put together a fair representation of that time-frame.
As a member of Militia Misfits (@MrsBCW & @MrB).
As a Member of 666 : HERETIC : 666 (@666Sweetness).
As a Member of Go Rin No Sho (@Slingbow).
THE HIGH SCORE TO BEAT AS OF 1-17-19
I have done my research. I’ve been in the hunt. I’ve asked the right questions. I have the answer - to the best of my knowledge. In today’s terms obtained in v17 and this was posted after release v18.
Kamikaze_Assassin posted 3,269 - @JimMayehem @ level 60 joined Crystal Palace 199 days ago.
TEAM: Misandra (29) Zeline (29) Guin (29) Grave (29) Kage (29) - the parens are troop levels.
I’ve seen JimMayehem in my runs - he is now level 62 - current trophies 2,615 210 days a member.
This checks out - this is the HIGH SCORE TO BEAT! Set approximately 1/10/2019.
Hopefully it is being updated in the Empires & Puzzles Official Forum as it increases so we know what we are shooting for!

HAPPY NEW YEAR
It has been a great 5 months with all of you via the 'Hero Utility', Titan Mafia site and the E&P Forum! Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas that do celebrate it and a wonderful end of December who don't! HAPPY NEW YEAR NEXT!!!!
E&P FAMILY LINK - Reference
There are 21 Season 2 Hereoes at this point. With the addition of Kageburado to the SAKURA FAMILY - We have a match up against the LAGOON FAMILY! Family Link's power is unique to the Season 2 Atlantis Heroes!
There are some slight discrepancies in regards to one’s ability to combine family members i.e. being that:
- The LAGOON FAMILY has 8 members while
- The SAKURA FAMILY has 8 and
- The poor ATLANTIS FAMILY only has 5 (NO Legendary).
This quick Reference is large enough that you can see the thumb nail Hero pics and clearly identify who the 5/4/3 stars are 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.

The TITAN of TOON!
“TC20 (Training Camp) owners! Do you want to keep a revolving chance at a free Legendary Hero Indefinitely? Farm the heck out of Season One 8.7! The recruits are the key here and you get 8–10 for each 3 world energies! You don't get this anywhere else on average. It also gives you a fair return on swords, backpacks, heroes and troops to boot! Get to work!”
“Wanted Monsters Missions. Best way to zoom through this is Season One 7.4.
There are 4 waves.
4–5 monsters in waves 1–3. 2 bosses in wave 4. That is 14–17 monsters per 3 world energies. So 7 auto attacks will net you a completed monster mission! Sometimes it takes 8.”
“Hold on to your 4/5*'s as Small Giant Games can issue a 'Balance Change' in the future! As an example: Leonidas was a C and became a solid B Hero. Alternatively you can use them to build out your War team. Obviously focus on ascending A heroes 1st, then Bs. Some Cs have a purpose i.e. Kashhrek – solid A on defense and war defense.”
“Hero Grading. Compare 5s against 5s, 4s against 4s. Never assume a 4*A is better than a 5*B. Exceptions are a 4* A could be more effective than a 5* C/B- (They sure don't live longer though). A Fully ascended 4* can be stronger than a full 3rd ascension 5* (not always). Point here – ascension items for 4s are a walk in the park compared to 5*s... so be wise!"
“After completing a wanted mission (monsters/heroes) you can right click the chest and skip the 12hr wait for 20 gems! The closer you are to 0hrs the less gems it costs (there are skip limits). Why would you do this? Your bored. It gets you nowhere fast and rewards dwindle as you continue (both reported to me and experienced by me).”

BEWARE: 'ANY' member falsifying friendly competition data will be removed from the User Group promptly. If you're inputing figures based on memory - don't. Proof is Required for Prizes.

"Being the Lone Wolf isn't easy, but it has it's perks...
Such as total freedom - battling Titans when and where you want.
The best thing to me is You can visit other Alliances:
4 Reasons I do so
1) They need help killing a Titan
2) 1+ I'm interested in finding out how they interact together. Perhaps a future Ally or even Alliance (and this would likely be mutual - likely a closed group)
3) Stop in to see a friend
(open or closed group)
4) Passing by (open group) be some random hero walking in and out of their camp - idk to let go of a fudge dragon, ask which way is North, just say hi, or just park there and don't say anything no matter what!
Not sure if this Spotlight will become a regular thing...
The BLAZERS I feel are worth my time. I'll be back eventually to write about them as a team and their individuality with in it.
An NO, there will be no 'SECRETS' revealed. What's done in the House stays in the House."

OFFICIAL POLLING RULES
My Kick-Off RaNt!
Thanks @Petri for the post and @Coppersky for the reference.
This one is huge so placing it here:
ABILITY TO EVOLVE HEROES FUTHER.
We’re working on a new major feature that will enable all heroes to be developed beyond their current limits. This big feature is planned to enter beta testing soon.
The Challenge Events:
Pirates of Corellia
Fables of Grimforest
Guardians of Teltoc
Knights of Avalon
First - be stocked up on battle items if you want any chance to place in the top 4 ranking reward categories (and I mean stocked up). Otherwise, settle on just completing it with what you have. You will need something to help get you through the last level or two.
Second - this should be very obvious. DO NOT bring a hero in that matches the events reflect element - unless you have no other choice! There is that rare case where one is such a great strategist that they can do so.
Third - know who the Bosses and monsters are in each of the 10 levels so you plan appropriately with your battle items, hero team selection & placement from the beginning! Fortunately @Mariamne has documented this for us:
CE Boss & Monster Map
Fourth - this applies to the few - having a deep bench of fully or near fully ascended 4 and 5 star heroes of the opposing element (to the events reflect element) gives you the best odds of landing on the visible leader board! Honestly - any element other than the reflect element if you have the deep bench - the idea here is maximum damage! Logic will assist you after reviewing the map above.
I Feel there is still value in the hero cards being available - @FraVit93 put it in my head to make it so.
