August meta: confront the reign of the Eightfold Path


August has finished, and its season of galactic warfare closes its doors! After the latest balance changes, the top positions have shaken up a bit, especially in Low Terra. It’s time to take a look at the numbers from last month’s competitive season and check how the rankings in High Terra (3800+) and Low Terra (2500-3800) have evolved. 

“This makes my heart sing.”

– Khârn

While overall we see the largest change amongst the Warlords of High Terra, there’s still a noticeable fluctuation in the rankings, due to both the introduction of new Warlords to the game and the ascension of a certain dominating Warlord. Let’s take a closer look and check how the ranks have evolved.

Low Terra

Camba-Diaz takes a stand and jumps straight into the first spot of Low Terra in his first full season since his release. Khârn and Santar once again occupy the second and third spot by a very little margin, followed by Raum who has jumped from the seventh to the fourth. Leman Russ climbs from his position last month and claims the fifth spot, closing the first half of the top 10.

Lion El’Jonson makes an appearance in the Top 10 for the first time in more than three months, getting in the sixth spot. His ever-loyal seneschal Corswain watches his back from the seventh spot, as Angron wrathfully attempts to go back to higher ranks in Low Terra. Right behind Angron, Rogal Dorn and Konrad Curze close this month’s top 10 with very similar stats to their brothers. Vulkan, Ferrus Manus and Malcador didn’t quite get into the top 10, but they will surely attempt to break into it during next month’s season. It’s also worth mentioning that while Zahariel and Lord Cypher didn’t get close to the top 10, they did manage to get the highest win rates in Low Terra. Is this a sign of things to come?

High Terra

After many months slowly climbing the ranks in High Terra, Khârn becomes this season’s champion and conquers the first spot, followed by the previous season’s champion, Lucretia. Very close to her, Santar jumps from the seventh spot to the third, and Camba-Diaz establishes himself in the fourth rank of High Tera. After his recent change, Malcador takes a huge leap and closes the first half of the elite’s top 10.

Lorgar finally gets into the top 10 again and leads the second half, with a hand ready to shove the Sigillite out of his way. Raum follows him very closely in the seventh spot, climbing a bit from last month’s position. Finally, closing the highest echelons of Terra, we see Angron, Iota and Corswain in fierce competition for the eigth spot, which Angron managed to claim by the skin of his teeth.
