Greetings and salutations Doolers! It’s been a while I know, especially since the last Tournament Report. Some of our staff have been busy with IRL things and the tournament scene has been pretty stale ever since the Bamco-Battlefy partnership fell through but the ladder GOD himself RHacker93 along with a great team of staff have been preparing a community-run league and the first week has just concluded!

Weekly Faction Statistics
Whenever I ask a top-level player in the Duelyst client who wasn’t competing in Meltdown League why they decided not to compete they all gave me the same answer, “There will be too much Wanderer and because of it the league won’t be fun.” Honestly, going in that’s what I expected to match up against primarily but RHacker93 compiled all the statistics and this league is feeling pretty diverse. Wanderer Rag was the most represented archetype but that was only at 12% with a 58% win rate within each game.
If you asked me to predict the meta of this league going forward I think you will see a good performance from Lyonar with decks such as Tempo Ziran & Strategos Brome making up a reasonable portion of the deck lists whilst holding the highest win rates that weren’t one player running the only version of their deck and getting 6 wins.
