Unexpected warlords prevail in January’s meta report


January has ended, a new Warmaster has taken the title and there’s a new competitive season on the go! As usual at the end of a season, the stats are in. It’s time to take a look at the numbers from last month’s competitive season and check how the rankings in High Terra (rating 3800+) and Low Terra (rating 2500-3800) have evolved. 

Fire knows not of mercy.

With the Galaxy in Flames expansion over and all new cards released and in circulation, January is a fresh look at how the new meta is evolving, and which new Warlords we are seeing make an entrance. New cards or changes to existing ones might also make a difference on older Warlords, giving them new avenues to try when climbing the ladder. We’ll start with Low Terra.


Low Terra

Camba-Diaz reclaims the top spot as the Warlord with the highest use rate in low Terra. Corax climbs to second place, while Anacharis Scoria barrels his way to third after the latest balance patch. Sevatar overtakes his Primarch to take the fourth place. Luther, Raum and Santar continue to hold tight to their positions in the top ten, while Fulgrim and Guilliman drop to ninth and fifteenth place respectively.

The Raven Guard continues its rise, with Corax and Sharrowkyn rising high in the rankings. Curze and Santar take the remaining spots among the top ten warlords in the season. Meanwhile, Kroeger raises significantly in the ranking up to fourteenth place, while Nomus Rhy’tan reaches the top 25 for the first time with an impressive sixty percent win rate.

High Terra

Following on from Low Terra, Scoria takes the top spot in terms of use rate, while Nomus Rhy’tan climbs to a sixty five percent win rate, and nearly ten percent use rate. Corax, Tarvitz and Camba-Diaz continue to hold onto third to fifth places with stubborn tenacity. Horus takes a stumble down to ninth from second, as does Qin Xa from his primacy last month, as well as Fulgrim and Pollux dropping significantly.

Further down, we see Marius Gage cut past Vulkan into tenth place, knocking Kharn down to thirteenth. Surprisingly, up from twenty third, Lorgar ascends into the top ten, taking seventh, while Exodus plummets out of the top ten down to twenty eighth position. Sevatar continues his gradual climb, while Curze claws nine places up to twelfth.

With a shake up of new and old Warlords in the higher levels of play, what new tactics and decks will we see to combat these front runners, if any? Who will take up the challenge and face down the might of the Salamanders, Mechanicum and Imperial Fists?
