- how long have you been playing?
May of 2017. And I’m way too lazy to look up an exact date. I remember seeing the add on Facebook while I was traveling for work, got me curious, and the rest is history.
- what’s your current role in your alliance?
Current role is just a regular old member I’ve taken a backseat since my return to the game to avoid burning out and just have fun playing it.
- which hero are you currently levelling and how will you use them?
As of this moment I am not leveling any hero, but I’m getting very trigger happy to max my Guardian Chameleon. Really want to try it in events and some titans. The attack boost and Crit boost sounds fun. Will just need to figure out how to properly use the element change. I used a team of Evelyn, Greg, Kingston, Rat and Tarlak in the last even and it was disgusting. Melted the bosses in stage 14. So chameleon can only make it better
- Which is your favourite hero in your roster, and why?
This is a really difficult question. If I would pick 5 they would be Ares, Hel, Panther, Lepus, Black Knight. Picking 1 is almost impossible for me. So in terms of pure use out of all of them I would say Hel is my favorite.
A lot of people know that I didn’t have Hel in my roster until S2 and Atlantis Summons started. I started the game f2p and didn’t get her in my limited pulls that month. Anchor made sure to flaunt his 2 Hels in my face for a looooong time. She was the original OP tank. And is still just so good. Locks down an entire half of the field in War and raids, and is so useful on titans. And she is a lifesaver in the elite stages on the map.
- What’s your favourite source for E&P play advice?
Hmm, the 7D discord server has been my go to for advice for a looong time. So many amazing players there to guide you as your progress. Other then that I’d say my Alliance Chat is also a really good place for advice lots of really smart people there.
- Do you have a particular memory of a great victory, a tragic defeat or a moment of madness?
So many! The latest is one of victory. Our wars with Crystal Palace are always highly charged, ridiculously competitive and amazingly close slug fests. A few weeks ago our war was down to the wire (which is the norm between us). We each had 2 flags left and single digit points separated us with about 2 minutes left on the war clock. All 4 flags went in at the same time adding to all our anxiety and we are going crazy in the alliance chat just watching. The time ticked by to 0 and the hits are still in progress. About a minute and a half post the war timer our first hit finishes, it’s a one shot and we go crazy. 15s later CPs first hit finishes, also a OS pretty much returning the anxiety in full force. Fortunately we are still ahead by a few points. Then the wait gets really intense. You could really cut the tension with a knife and I was pretty sure I was going to have a heart attack. About 5 minutes after the war clock expired, our second hit finishes. It’s a fail! And not a great one. I think CP just needed 18 pts to win and I’m pretty sure we’ve lost this one. However before that could even sink in CPs second hit finishes, our alliance chat was going crazy!!! We had won by 3 points!!!
- Which Season 1 hero would you most recommend to a new player?
New player? BoldTusk. Bread and butter for you. I still use him till this day. One of the most amazing heroes in all of E&P. He is sturdy, the heal is nice, and the attack boost is game changing. I always tell new players to go for BoldTusk, Grimm and Wu.
- What can you see out of your window right now?
An lawn that needs mowing… badly!!! And it’s storming outside so can’t even cut it. It’s really annoying me. But the rabbits are having fun in the unusually tall grass
- If @petri was coming to dinner, what would you cook?
Petri doesn’t want me to cook… ever. But if he does come over I would first ask for my salary since I’m apparently a Dev then I would feed him a grilled cheese. Or if I’m particularly adventurous, I’d make Biryani (traditional Pakistani dish) He gets to decide whether he wants to risk it or not.
- If you could make two changes to the game, one realistic and one less so, what would they be?
Hmm. Realistic changes would be a) a functional hero academy that works for both f2p and long term p2w players. And b) variations in defensive formations. It’s about time…
Less realistic ones, T R A D I N G. Or the ability to give a small shock to the devs every time one of us pulls a duplicate hero from any summons.
- If I gave you $1000 to spend frivolously , what would you buy?
Oooo a $1000! Lets see… id probably buy a few LEGO sets and have a great time with my son. Now where is my money???
- this is a really strange and challenging time for all of us across the whole player base and all our communities around the world. How has your alliance been supporting each other or those around them?
It’s a stressful time in many people’s lives. Games shouldn’t add to the stress. So we do try to keep it as light as possible which is much appreciated. We have a few players on the front lines as healthcare workers who do so much and I am personally so proud of them And they know our alliance is a safe place for them to do whatever they need. Whether it’s venting, or binging on E&P shenanigans, or just sit back and enjoy light hearted banter.
Sooo about that $1000…???
