Let’s create a MASTER List of people who used to frequent this forum but who have now left us.
Think it’d be good for people to refer to.
There is sometimes a tendency to think that those who rage-quit were silly or ‘that couldn’t happen to me’ but to the contrary I think that our alumni started off as half-content people like you and me and then just became totally disillusioned with SG. Of course, not everyone left because they were angry.
If we could list them all on one page it might cheer people up.
Happy for everyone to lighten the load and just chip in names with links here lol
Feel free to even make up a special ability, add a quote or brief bio for them.
Edit: This is a WIKI and can be edited by anyone
LIST BEGINS HERE (WORK IN PROGRESS):
Celtibero (June 2020)
I leave with great sadness, leaving behind 2 alliances with wonderful people. They are the reason why I kept holding on. Here I also leave unforgettable people, I do not want to name anyone because all of you have been equally important.
dafrca (August 2017)
I wish the best for those who are still playing. And I want to thank the developers for the fun I did have before the change.
Darth (December 2018)
I played this game with all my heart & love and energy. Bc of some personal issues I left, line also.
Rest of the real players I hope you guys get out of here and find a new game like we did that literally allows you to spend or be ftp and still enjoy yourself.
The amount of money required here is not worth the return as almost every event can be manipulated by cash versus skill.
Coming into a game like this and getting upset because you spent to much mony is your fault and your fault alone.
Ellilea (July 2018)
Known for her detailed and thoughtful posts and lobbying for change from SG . Early critic of SG not listening to feedback
Etlecho (June 2018).
Strong Forum Contributor of 30 total forum posts before his 16 posts on leaving.
So I hope y’all have fun, but I’ve had enough.
FrenziedEye Post 22 in this topic for his farewell (July 2020)
The OP for this list and a FTP superstar.
Garanwyn (August 2019?)
Mod, known for his detailed on-demand statistical / mathematical analysis
Nope I only had one account. Just got bored and decided to do something funny when I quit
Jedon (Unknown - June 2019?)
Jovial character, had to leave due to illness
JGE (17 December 2020)
So for now I am going to drop out of the forum. But still play the game until I have used up all my mats maxing out any hero I can over the next 4 or 5 months.
Kerridoc (October 2019)
Champion Mod / Game Designer, always willing to offer tips to beginners. Left to save the world from climate change.
I’ve also been asked by the new Climate Council to help plot a course for Maine to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 and 100% renewable energy by 2050. These goals are tremendously challenging and will require my focused attention.
Consequently, I am cutting way back on my screen time–and with that, I’m going to stop playing E&P and wind down my participation on the forums in an orderly way. It’s been a fun 2+ years, but it’s time to move on. My best wishes to all, especially the many forum regulars who make these forums such an interesting and unique place.
King_Kyree77 (08 April 2021)
I just wanted to say goodbye. For those of you who struggle to make it through the day without thinking about this game, you may want to consider doing what I did. This game can be hazardous for your health if you aren’t careful enough to realize it. In the end, I came to the realization that Empires and Puzzles no longer brought me joy and it is with an unburdened heart that I say farewell.
Lady Achilles (January 2021)
Well respected forum and beta contributor.
I wanted to be able to say bye to everyone before I leave the forum.

I know many of you saw this coming long before the costume moment, it was just my personal tipping point that makes me say enough is enough. I enjoyed the connections I’ve made on this forum, among the alliances I’ve participated and in Beta. Wishing you all the best for 2021.
Lest007 (25 January 2021)
First of all, I want to mention that I had fun for the past 3 years playing this app. Can’t deny that whenever I was bored everywhere, I would go I would open my E&P and have some awesome time building my roster, war, titans and events. However, since the past nerfing incidents I realized the game was taking a different direction. I completely agree that past HOTM like Telly, Vela needed some nerfing and totally agree that introducing costumes for S1 heroes was very logical to balance the game.
Mariamné (December 2019)
Graphic design contributor extraordinaire, made infographics for event challenges etc
Thank you very much. I wish you all good things.
PS : I will try to publish Teltoc Event in january 2020.
MysterySpin (May 2020 - 500 days after Hero Academy was announced)
Known for his detailed analyses and extraordinary knowledge
notyou87 (13 April 2021)
I am not great at writing, so, ignore if it’s all over the place…
Last night was the end for me, I decided to spend more money on the S3 offers and did 30 pulls, resulting in my a Sonya and Stonecleaver. It made me feel sick to have spent so much money and to realise I had spent £160+ in April alone (pennies to a lot of you, i know). To me, this is a huge amount of money, the money I do not have to just throw away in a game (or life) of any kind. It’s 2 weeks of rent for me or 6 weeks of groceries.
Sadly, I have to admit I am addicted.
Novo (June 2020)
Much loved calendar girl. Dedicated many hours to producing detailed calendars of the games schedule.
NPNKY (June 2020)
I’ve realized that what I enjoy most about the game is the people in my alliance and here on the forum. Since that’s where the enjoyment comes from, that’s where my energy will go.
Also known as a straight talking advice machine, medical professional and rescuer of noobs from themselves.
Polentinha (November 2020)
Should I write here? Well… the time has come.
With many things happening… I have bought a new phone and decided to don’t install Empires again. I’ll use this thread opportunity to say I had a good, really good time around more than anything.
I’ll also apologize for many screams I’ve did around this forum. Lol, I only wanted the better for us.
A Titan of the game, @Razor ran one of the best fan sites available, provided a huge amount of quality data and was an integral part of TitanMafia and the Batman family of alliances. He was also a true gentleman - humble and ready to help; few have contributed so much to the community.
Richter (May 2020)
Fearsome FTP legend who valued sportsmanship and fair competition
I wanted to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many on this forum for their kindness and contributions. From the expansive guides on monster drops, to the research done with tile probability, to the encouragement shown to myself and others, it has been a privilege to experience the game with many of you.
A list of accomplishments I have been proud of:
1.Reached global top 1 in trophies
8.Did it without ever using any gems in any summon portal since I started playing
Rigs The Necromancer (May 2020)
Remembered for Flags.
Hopefully devs can put more weight into the voices of their playerbase in the future and improve things for you guys.
I wanted to stick it out for Crew-, but even a daily login feels too forced and the game is just not something i look forward to anymore. Actually dread just opening it.
Rimbros (March 2019)
Remembered for her 9 posts created, and 21 hearts given to her beloved forum members.
I know that the developers and owners of the game do not listen to us, many people complained about why in Atlantis invocations heroes come out of season 1, why a hero that season 1 costs 300 gems in atlantis costs 350, why put dust and straw to make it more difficult to get good heroes, and yet they never did anything
Russo (12 January 2021)
my moment came + 3 years of game a lot of fun with you … many good times … Thanks to all the warriors for the 3 years of game
Scrape (August 2020)
Was asked to post here from a response in another thread. I’m definitely not a well known player or forum member, but will say farewell anyway. Logged in one last time to take a picture of my final stats.
SolemnWolf (Unknown date)
“This guy basically, arrived, changed everything we knew about how damage was calculated with one of the most mathematically proficient threads ever written and quietly left.”
sutechan (January 2021)
Well, tired of tiles being “random”, this is my last alliance war then I stop the game.
spending money for random that is no illegal in mainy countries in Europe
so i quit this game
Just the place for a Snark!
Now he’s gone, I don’t know why
And 'till this day, sometimes I cry
He didn’t even say goodbye
He didn’t take the time to lie
@Vikingblood80 sadly announced he is leaving the game. He was / is a true math geek and authored useful threads and offered tons of advice to benefit the player community.
WhenWeCollide (27 January 2021)
So, with that I say goodbye. My leaving won’t make a difference to SG, or their bottom line, but it does to me.
We lost one of the best today. @Wormwood retired. I’ve known him a long time and it’s a very sad day for me. He was always happy to help and always a very positive person to interact with. It’s a huge blow to this community to lose someone like him. Farewell my friend and enjoy your retirement, the free time and the extra money you’ll have in your pocket.

It’s not impossible I might play a little at some point in the future, but I don’t see myself going back to any form of regular or competitive play unless there’s something very distinctive and interesting added to the gameplay.
