A new wave of piracy takes over may’s meta! Take a look at the latest meta report


May’s end also closes its competitive season! A new Warmaster has taken its predecessor’s mantle, and now it’s time to take a look at the numbers from last month’s season and check how the rankings in High Terra (rating 3800+) and Low Terra (rating 2500-3800) have evolved.

This is the first meta report since last month’s Warlord overhaul, so we are glad to see the top positions shuffle around and new faces entering the rankings. Let’s take a look!

Low Terra

Hadrabulus Vioss has returned in force, taking over the first spot of Low Terra’s meta, followed by Nerat Kirine, one of the biggest scourges of the ladder in a bygone era who had not seen this much play in years. Rogal Dorn leads the Imperial Fists into the third spot, while the Lord of the Flies and Ferrus Manus close up the top five with fantastic Win Rates.

It’s worth noting that Arkhan Land and Luther, even if not as popular choices as other Warlords, still pack a punch in today’s meta. The same can be said for Sevatar, Aloceri or Tybalt Marr. All in all, Low Terra’s meta this past month has been very diverse, with lots of Warlords offering viable and winning strategies.

High Terra

In a curious twist of fate, the first two positions of High Terra are a mirror of Low Terra’s. Kirine takes the first spot, pushing Vioss to a very respectable second place. These prickly pair have managed to keep a staggering number of Primarchs from reaching higher in this month’s rankings. Angron, Alpharius and Rogal Dorn close High Terra’s top five in very good positions, albeit with a slightly lower Win Rate than in Low Terra.

Iota and Lion El’Jonson have both entered the top rankings with a very good win rate, while the Callidus Assassin and Arkhan Land have become quite a menace in the recent meta, sporting dangerously high rates of success. We will keep an eye on how the most recently introduced or changed Warlords trend and make adjustments if any of them start displaying unhealthy play patterns for the game.
