The Faultless Blade retains his top spot in July’s ranked season!


Give me your tears and blood.

Nerat Kirine

July 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. 

Nerat Kirine

Low Terra

The Perfect Swordsman, Lucius of the Emperor’s Children, retains his top spot this month, fighting off competition from all sides. Taking 2nd spot is Nerat Kirine, stealing and plundering his way up from 12th, reinforced by the Orphans of War’s new reinforcements and mission. Equally bolstered by the Titandeath expansion is Cor’Bax Utterblight, with his first showing for many months, as he claims 3rd position. Corax and Raum round off the top 5 with minor changes in their positions from last month.

Holding 6th is Tarvitz, defeated from trying to take the number 1 spot from his brother last month, followed closely by Santar who claws up a couple of spots. Kharn enters the top 10 once more from 14th last month, with Guilliman dropping out of the top 5 to hold 9th, and Malcador appearing out of nowhere to round off the 10th position. Two notable movements are both Sevatar and Curze dropping out of the top 10 to both 11th and 12th respectively, as well as Luther taking a tumble as well. Ulrach Branthan makes a good showing for the first time in many months by taking the 15th spot.

High Terra

Lucius once again holds the top spot at High Terra, and incredible feat on its own, for a 2nd month running. With a use rate of nearly 14%, and a potent win rate to boot, he seems to be the dominant Warlord. Speaking of warlords, Nuntio Dolores batters Sabris Regnum down to take 2nd spot, with the familiar Nerat Kirine claiming 3rd. Corax takes a hit down to 4th place, with Kharn also dropping to 5th as newer Warlords try to shake up the meta.

Fresh from the Garden of Nurgle comes Cor’Bax Utterblight, appearing once again for the first time in several months in the top 10 of High Terra, dislodging Guilliman down to 19th position. Sigismund takes a hit down to 7th position, with the ever-present Raum claiming 8th. Sharrowkyn reappears at 9th position after dropping off entirely last month, with Branthan making a better showing in High Terra by rounding off the 10th spot. Both Marius Gage and Luther take some of the biggest hits this month, dropping well below the 20th position from their former 15th+ positions over the last several months.

Can Lucius be allowed to continue his dominance of Terra? Will the Faultless Blade ever tire, or will a new opponent find a way to beat him? We’re already seeing both Orphans of War and Ruinstorm taking full advantage of their new Titandeath expansion cards to challenge the meta, but who will defeat the perfect swordsman and claim top spot next month?
