The Warhawk holds iron back in December’s meta report


“Saving mankind from the darkness is no weakness.”

– Jaghatai Khan

As the echoes of last year’s battles fade away with the beginning of a new year, it is time to celebrate the glory of a new Warmaster stepping forth to claim the honour of December’s ranked season. Let’s take a look at the latest numbers and check how the rankings in High Terra (rating 3800+) and Low Terra (rating 2500-3800) have evolved.

A small balance update will soon follow to tweak the most pressing issues observed during the latest release windows.

Low Terra 

Sevatar seizes the top spot, proving why he is the first Captain of the Night Lords and stands among the few officers to earn his Primarch’s trust. Champion Dornax has become a force to be reckoned with, demolishing foes to secure the second spot. Meanwhile, Mortarion and Jaghatai Khan attempt to settle their rivalry on the ranked ladder, with the Primarch of the Death Guard keeping the upper hand for the time being. Tacitus Proctor closes the top 5 below his dominant position last month, but still with a very successful season.

But hold your boltguns! Beyond the top positions, other Warlords made a mark in the current meta. Notable mentions go to Luther, Gabriel Santar, and Calas Typhon, each showing promise to players wishing to crush the ladder in the future season.

High Terra

In High Terra, we witness the rapid ascent of the Warhawk, Jaghatai Khan, claiming the coveted first-place position with an intensity that echoes the roar of his bike. Champion Dornax clinches an impressive second spot, asserting dominance also in High Terra. Sevatar adds swagger to the mix with a third-place finish, followed by Mortarion and Numeon, who round off the top five with an epic clash of fire and ruin.

Noteworthy mentions extend to Iota, who experienced an unprecedented ascent through the ranks thanks to her rocketing Win Rate. Sanakht also stood strong against the current meta, preventing no less than four Primarchs from reaching higher positions in last month’s High Terra standings.
