October Meta: A practical contender rises to the top


After a season of galactic warfare, October is over and a new Warmaster has taken the title! This month’s data has been collected, so it’s time to take a look at the numbers from this last competitive season and check how the rankings in High Terra (3800+) and Low Terra (2500-3800) have evolved since last season. 

“I’ll let my bolter speak for me.”

– Aeonid Thiel

After the last balance changes, the top-performing Warlords in the previous season have ceded the top ranks, and the Ultramarines have soared up high in the rankings for the first time in a long time. Some Warlords reacted faster than others to the balance changes and the ranks have moved significantly compared to last month, so let’s take a look at how they stand.

Low Terra

Roboute Guilliman returns with a vengeance and takes the first spot of Low Terra after the recent changes. Camba-Diaz takes a few more steps towards conquering the table but falls short in front of the Primarch. Santar and Raum rise up to the third and fourth spots with very similar scores, and Luther closes up the first half of the top 10 in fifth place, falling from grace slightly compared to his last month’s great results.

Khârn falls to the lower half of the top 10 and is closely followed by Marius Gage, who claims the seventh spot after jumping 81 whole steps compared to last month. A triad of Primarchs closes the top 10 spots, with Angron, Vulkan and Rogal Dorn taking the eighth, ninth and tenth spots respectively, with pretty similar results during this season. Also worthy of note, the Alpha Legion has infiltrated the ranks and managed to get two of their members into the top 20, with Alpharius and Exodus in the eleventh and fourteenth spots.

High Terra

The Ultramarines take over High Terra with unparalleled determination. Aeonid Thiel conquers the table and becomes this month’s champion after climbing 76 steps to claim the first spot in this month’s ranking. Camba-Diaz once again resists in the second spot, but he can’t get too comfortable, for a menacing Guilliman stands right behind him. Closing the first half of the top 10 we see Santar and Khârn, who have fallen in comparison to last month.

Raum leads the lower half of the top 10 climbing six spots since last month. Marius Gage stalks the possessed Word Bearer very closely, ready to slay him whenever he has the chance and climb further in the ranks. Luther drops a couple of steps during this month’s season but hangs in the eighth spot. Finally, closing the top 10 we have former Ultramarine Tylos Rubio climbing into the top ranks and getting the ninth spot and Corvus Corax making it into the top 10 after last season’s drop.
