When did you start playing? What is your level?
*Around 8 months - level 52
Who is your avatar? Do you rotate your avatar?
I mainly switch between Tudan and the Blue Trainer Hero . On Holidays I use some of those specific heroes, but only if I already have them in my roster.
Who is your favourite 3? Why?*
Definitely Frosty - it was my first maxed hero and he served me great. He has a very good heal (only 5% less than Rigard) + minions. In the beginning I was using him with Buddy and they had also the family bonus. I emblemed him to +19 and also limit broke him and now he is close to 700 defense and 1100 health, so, not having a deep roster, I even use him as healer in war. He’s great with Frosth. Although I do need rogue emblems for Frigg, I do not see myself taking the emblems from him very soon, especially as he is often in my 3* defense teams.
Runner-ups are Kvasir - everyone loves him so I don’t think an explantion is needed about him and costume Renfeld. If I manage to fire him the first time, more often I manage to win that game.
Who is your favourite 4? Why?*
Costume Rigard. I got him a bit late - after two or three months and he improved my game greatly. He is almost in my every raid team and I always count on his healing and cleanse. I did not manage to get his costume yet and I really wish for that, especially for firing him in 9 tiles (though I also need to get a mana troop first :D).
Runner-ups are Boril, Mist and Gullinbursti. I think Boril was my first maxed 4* and was the one to whom I owe completing S1 after only 3 months. I don’t use him so much anymore, but he is still a good hero to have who helps me for some of the boss stages on seasons maps. Gullinbursti is with Rigard part of my main raid offense team together with either Mist or Wu Kong. I only change her (in my mind it’s a she, not sure why :D) for some of the Holy tanks.
And I should also mention Caedmon, who is one of the best if not the best 4* snipers and his dispell won me a great deal of raids. Actually my favourite raid team is currently Rigard - Frigg - Caedmon - Mist/ Wu Kong - Gullinbursti. I know it’s 2-2-1 and only one 5*, but it has gotten me to diamond
Who is your favourite 5? Why?*
It is difficult to name one, I think it’s my defense triumvirate: Black Knight, Cobalt, Frigg. I got BK in a 10 pull a couple of days after I started playing (the Avalon event in December and I got one of the Christmas offers for the pull) and I did not know what treasure I had, as his special did not seem very straight-forward and his 50% change to reduce the damage to 1 seemed low to me
I started to research on him though and I started to experiment with him, especially since he was my only 5* together with a couple of 4* and 3* for the S1 missions. Next week I pulled Cobalt in a 3 coin-pull from the Ninja tower. After I was being immediatly killed in raids by Boril, his by-pass was WOW to me. I did another 10 pull and got Mica and Jade. Even though I did not have the unfarmable ascension mats, I maxed BK, Cobalt and Mica to 2.60 and they were in my main defense for the first 2 months I think. And on offense, the ninja family bonus dodge saved my ■■■ quite a bit in fights.
I knew that I was going against the advice of most players to ignore the 5*-s until I get a complete team of 3* and 4*, but I don’t regret at all. They helped me to advance very quickly, as their stats were better than those of a 3* and their special skills gave me a tremendous advantage.
I got Frigg three or four months later from a few coin pulls and I was completly surprised and shocked. I never thought I would get her and I was hoping for another hero. I don’t remember which one, but I am quite sure it was not as good.
Because I had the ascension mats to max Frigg, I maxed her quite quickly. BK and Cobalt followed and I kept advancing in the raid arena and I started not to be only cleaner for my alliance
What do you enjoy most about the game?
Wars - because t combines PvP play, alliance play and involves several different teams and synergies. It’s basically the main content I watch now on E&P, because in tournaments it became boring to see people using the same attack team over and over again.
What is your happiest/funniest memory in the game?
Well, I guess there were these major turning points - finishing S1 after 3 months and S2 after 6 (on normal), getting in gold arena after 2 or 3 months, then in platinum and finally in diamond. And of course getting some great heroes from 1-3 coin pulls. And the funniest - when I did stuoid things because I did not pay attention to what that hero special was saying. For example in a raid I thought hiding is similar to ghosting and I kept ending tiles into Russula charging her right away.
As I know that it’s a touchy topic, I think that it would be useful to be open about spending. I definitely don’t think one should spend in order to enjoy the game, but for sure it helps with getting better heroes and sometimes mats that help you advance quicker. I have spent on the game between 30 - 70 euro per month (on special offers with coints and gems for pulls. A few of those included also an unfarmable ascension mat).
I know it seems like a lot, but for me it’s a stress reliever and it’s quite less than how much my friends and many other people spend on cigarettes or alcohol. And I would have spent this money on junk food if not on E&P. I am not judging anyone and I agree that it might be stupid to spend so much money on a mobile game, but so is to spend money on many different things (including fancy clothes or uber because you don’t want to use public transport etc). The reality is that actually very few of us are actually wise about their spending habits and I don’t regret that I have spent on this “stupid” game than on (even more) sweets and pizza And I will stop when I don’t feel like continuing.
But I would like to highlight that overspending leads to nothing I overspent twice - when Ursena was featured in January and when Alfrike and Bera were featured I think in May. I was missing a really good purple 5* and you know how it is… Overspending didn’t help me absolutly at all. If you are on a bad streak, spending more will not help. And if you are on a good streak, it will not last long, so it’s no point to overspend

What is the single biggest thing you’d like to see happen in the game?
I would like to see wars in which all players need to use also 3* or 4* heroes or where you can use only certain classes (like they’re trying to do now with the Tower of Magic). It would be great to see new synergies created in Pvp fights.
