The Emperor’s Champion cuts into February’s meta report!


“Nothing worthwhile is done without challenge.”

– Sigismund

February has ended, a new Warmaster has taken the title and a new competitive season is on the go! This past month was not a usual one though, since it saw the appearance of the new Sons of Horus Legion in the midst of its competitive season. Did they make their mark in that short time?

Well, let’s take a look at the numbers from last month’s competitive season and check how they are standing in the Standard High Terra (rating 3800+) and Standard Low Terra (rating 2500-3800) rankings, and see how they have evolved since last month. 

Low Terra

Sigismund continues his success streak earning February’s top spot in Low Terra, sporting a remarkable Win Rate. Following him very closely as the month’s top Warlord picks, Gabriel Santar and Luther jump into second and third spots from last month’s fourth and sixth respectively. This feat is emulated by both Curze and Raum, who manage to climb from ninth and tenth to this month’s fourth and fifth spots.

Leading the speartip of the top ten’s second half, Abaddon becomes the first of the new Warlords to be lauded in a Meta Report. After him comes Horus Aximand, who has not been able to achieve a good level of success in matches yet, even if he was one of the favoured player picks after the Legion’s release. Closing the top ten we have Sanguinius who fell from last month’s second to this month’s eighth, Jangsai Khan swooping into the ninth spot and Exodus, who slowly but steadily made it to the top positions of the list.

High Terra

The Emperor Champion’s honours keep growing, as he also took February’s first spot in High Terra! Iapto leaps into second place with a very advantageous Win Rate and Jangsai Khan speeds up into the third spot granting the White Scars representation in the top 10 of High Terra for the first time in recent months. In another twist of fate, Kroeger has relentlessly advanced from outside the top 10 last month to the fourth spot in February, with Sergeant Cork taking the fifth rank with another great win rate in High Terra.

Abaddon once again joins the top 10, taking the sixth spot and closely followed in Use Rate by the daemonic Raum but finding less success on the ladder, as players adjust to the new playstyle of the Sons of Horus. The original version of Lucius gains his last meta success before the new one takes his spot, earning a very good eighth spot. The Warmaster himself enters the Top 10 battlefield once again after his new version was released, taking the ninth spot. Rounding the top of High Terra Gabriel Santar drops a few spots from last month, but still manages to keep himself among the highest positions.
