    I don't think that they will change anything with trophies/pheme etc. in the next version. They are removing the Alliance Hall of Gods, not the (player/trophy) Hall of Gods

    My Ariadne can go on with Dumpster's GK forever 😉 (high phy resistance, stun, and LoH help). But in the end I need invoc if I want to kill it. The last time a GK killed my Ariadne is Neptune24's. But I also killed it, in less than 10s 😁.

    Dumpster, your GK is really strong. I wasted too much time with it so in the end I needed to invoc to break the gate. If we ever meet in wars, I'd invoc right away to kill it

    Since the questions of the OP were somewhat answered, I'd permit myself to continue to hijacking the thread as long as it's constructive, like you said . I agree that CD seems to be the most important perk. Next war season we'll go to TL, you know, it's like a dream for the members of our team. But before the next war, I asked everybody to superforge 2 CD rings and CD capes for war heroes. If I ever have that Hercules' cape, I'd refine CD to his bracers. Of course I'd prefer Odysseus' boots so I don't need to refine CD ... now knowing that I cursed 1 Herc's cape and 3 Ody's boots in the early days ... 😅😅😅

    My apologies for having somewhat hijacked the thread. I agree, we should stop this here. BTW, the d-word I used wasn't in an insulting manner, it's just an expression to show that I didn't want to enter the "I am stronger than you" type of discussion. It's just a game in the end 😉. The first time I used this expression is when you started our "conversation" by "what's your current rank in leadership board?", so I just wanted to avoid going in that direction. Sorry if there's any misunderstanding. And last but not least, I don't think that it's a joke to play in top 100, in any game. It's hard work, time, commitment. I am no there, yet. I am about less than 200 trophies from top 100. And if I ever enter that list, I still need to continue if I don't want to be kicked out. Again, let keep peace and constructive discussions in the forum. Sorry if you felt angry 🙁. P/S: what's your IGN? so that I will pay particular attention if I ever meet your base on my islands . Having a base that constantly kik Hades is no joke, my hats off for that!

    Haha I knew it . I was reluctant when I wrote about Herc's cape because I thought guys like you'd disagree 😛. But let's say that an average player wouldn't hesitate to use that cape while I saw people wondering if they should use Ody's boots. Between you and me, I'd take Ody's boots any day against Herc's cape. We seem to have some common preferences, don't we 😉? @HOLYDIVINE In true end-game any hero can beat any base, really. It's a question of preferences/habits in the end. I have 8 heroes that I can randomly take to wars and Herc is one of those. Again, I don't want to make this a d*ck-measuring contest. My Hercules can reach the GK of a full maxed-out base (all barricades and towers maxed, at current levels, all blessings) with 1m30s left without dying nor invocation (killing the GK is an entire different matter). I don't take him to wars because I prefer some others, but he's my 4th hero so I do use him for raid during wars.

    Sorry HOLYDIVINE, I don't want to start a d*ck-measuring contest. Let's say that I'll enter top 100 in 1-2 days, depends on how much time I can AP farming 😉. I started the game in 2018, so young account, always behind in terms of ascension level, which might be a reason why I don't enjoy Hercules. Herc, like most solo heroes, prefers to be at higher ascension levels where he can take advantage of absolute-value perks/abilities (damage, LoH, etc.). Heck, even frostbite is tided to damage (multiplier) and demolition is just right for him. I'd like to echo Dumspter's opinion: Herc is very easy to build to be decent! Look at his uniques, one is the best perk to quickly get to the gate, the other is one of the best perks to kill the GK. Both uniques is on offensive items so they don't take away anything from him (think about Jason's vest and Odysseus' boots). Easy to build to be decent, and gives players the impression of absolute power. Same with Perseus as GK, easy to build. But, in my opinion, there are better in terms of pure potential, if we can ignore the costs and time to build. If you can 100% most of the top 100 with your Herc, it means that you might have a very well-built Herc. It doesn't mean that Herc is a cheat code. If one looks at my Ariadne's battle log, then she'd be a cheat code, too .

    That I totally agree

    True! And in wars it means you don't get 100% ... big consequences . Oh well ... that's why I leave Hercules at home, but it belongs to another discussion. He's far from the "cheat code" that someone thinks he is 😛.

    I didn't want to test it, but received the answer by ... accident . In a raid, my Herc rushed ahead of the troops. I destroyed the two Nyx, that's sure because I wanted the troops to take care of the rest of the towers that I left behind. In the end, I destroyed the Apollo Gate, maybe a little bit too early, so I ended up with +3 trophies and 98%. So I think that any one tower you miss still gives you full trophies and 98%. I have missed 1 Nyx several times, but in that particular raid I was sure that the one missed was not a Nyx.

    What you say is true for troops. The hero is under your control, either you fight or you run. Hey, you can test it with map full of towers and troop waves, no barricade. I did my homework 😛.

    Q&A Questions January/February

    I've just made several tests, using my Jason. I started the battle with offensive/defensive modes. Here's the observations: Speed is not affected, Jason arrived at the GK at the same moment. He killed the GK at the same speed. In all my tests, offensive or defensive mode, he reached the Gate at the same exact moment. Without power, he destroyed the gate in 16s, both modes. With 1 Talos, he destroyed the gate in 14s, both modes. So my own observation is that defensive mode does nothing to the hero. Of course I can't cover all possible cases, but if you think about how things are coded, it'd be strange if there are some complex "if ... else ..." here.

    I see Federer as Ariadne, Nadal as Hercules and Djokovic as Achilles (or any allrounder 😛) Ariadne is da best

    Phil, I really like your suggestion about power percentage, great idea, really, I'd like to see it implemented! I also agree with Archimides about motivation for top teams/players, and above all, please cease the hate that's going on in this forum. I started the game 1 year ago, so in no way I am "old-elite" player but I still enjoy the game, try to learn things/aspects of the game and improve myself. There are advantages of old players that I can't never catch up (Odyssey) but then, finding a workaround is fun. If you can just AP everything then why keep playing? Having hard challenges makes everybody better. I am thinking about Federer-Nadal rivalry. One would argue that without Nadal Fed'd have 30 Slams but would he? The top guys in tennis are leagues above others because they keep improving themselves, in a positive manner.

    I started the game in 2018, there were 4 workers at that time, if I recall right.
