The Lord of Serpents infiltrates the top of the ladder in this year’s first meta report


“Exactly as planned.”

– Alpharius

January has ended and with it the first ranked season of the year, as a new Warmaster claims the title. 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. 

Low Terra 

Sevatar proves his legendary skill and terrifying brutality, managing to retain his spot at the top of Low Terra rankings two months in a row. Primarchs Alpharius and Mortarion follow closely, threatening to overcome the first Captain of the Night Lords from the 2nd and 3rd spots respectively. Exodus keeps his targets located and finishes 4th, with Tacitus Proctor closing up the top 5 once again.

Outside of the highest rankings, some familiar faces have also shown an incredible performance, with Walords like Kaeria Casryn and Luther achieving an impressive Win Rate. Infocyte Assassin Lea Rayne makes a strong debut and takes the 12th spot for Clade Vanus.

High Terra

Alpharius’s strategic excellence during his first full ranked season earns him the first-place position, with marksman Exodus following in his Primarch’s footprints. Sevatar consistent performance grants him another third-place finish, barely ahead of newcomer Lea Rayne. The Red Angel climbs two spots and reclaims his place among the strongest competitors, rounding off the top 5.

After his victory during last season, Jaghatai Khan has fallen down to the 10th spot, with runner up Champion Dornax disappearing from the top of the Ladder after the latest balance changes.
