Tournament Report: September 23 2018

TOURNAMENT REPORT: SEPTEMBER 23, 2018

 

Greetings fellow Doolysts,

Tournament report is back. Sorry for the small break, we went through some administrative difficulties. Hopefully, the tournament report will be back on a regular schedule.

LEAGUE STANDINGS

We have finally come to the final, 12th week of the Meltdown League regular season and the hype is real! Standings after week 11 are as follows:

Top 12 ranked players at the end of the regular season are automatically qualified for the playoffs and right now, 22 of them have a theoretical chance to do that. Those who fail will have another shot in the Last Chance Tournament – where the 4 best placed will join the top 12 in the playoffs, in the final battle for the big title and all that comes with it (the money, the fame, the bragging rights etc).

Congratulations to the 5 players that already secured the top 12 spot: SonOfMakuta, Briguy77, DracoMoriarty, ImprobableBlob and Spammernoob. The fight is not over for them, however — they will look to improve their position and get the best possible seat for the playoffs.

TOP PERFORMERS OF THE WEEK

These players have scored a perfect 3-0 record during week 11.

Briguy77 (6-0) – Wanderer Ragnora

Niklaren (6-1) – Wanderer Ragnora

Zabiool (6-2) – Titan Argeon

WEEK 11 METAGAME ANALYSIS

Magmar and Lyonar stand out as the most played factions. This is, in part, because of the traditionally strong decks (Wanderer and Egg-nora for Magmar and Healyonar and Titan for Lyonar), but also because of the large number of different competitive decks these factions provide. This week, 14 different archetypes have come from these 2 factions alone!

While Wanderer Ragnora remains the most popular deck with 6 pilots (followed by Wanderer Reva and Titan Strategos at 3 pilots), in terms of performance it was overshadowed by the other popular deck: Titan Strategos with a winrate of 85.7% (compared to Wander Rag’s 77.8%). The winrate of all Titan variants combined is 90%!

What continues to surprise us is the high diversity of the meta in our league – out of 41 players that have competed during this week, we have seen 27 different archetypes played!
