Congrats Sweden Asgård for taking the title! Thanks to Longshanks we have some nice statistics from the event. Take a look from here:
My take for the most significant results:
First player won 57% of the games. This is no surprise to anyone who plays the game competitively. With the new unit movement rules you can get very far up to table when going first and that puts the one going second into a tough spot. Especially many of the best armies in current meta benefit a lot for going first. Hopefully this will be addressed somehow in the new Steamroller.
Mk4 armies didn’t dominate - quite the opposite. Storm Legion won 51% games and all others went well worse. So the best armies are currently legacy. This is very healthy for the game when some releases are still missing and cadres are still to come.
A few casters might need a tweak downwards. The sample size for many of the armies is way too small to draw any conclusions and is more about the player, but Retribution Shadows and Grymkin stand out at high win percentage and many games played. Sadly we cannot see the casters played but it is almost certainly mostly Thyron and Old Witch. These two stand out even after almost every team trying to build lists against.
What’s your take?
