First of all, some fun stats we’ve assembled:
Overall General’s Handbook 23-24 Statistics
These are the win rates for all the armies since the Launch of this GHB.
Meta representation (or meta rep) is very important for much needed context on win rates. Larger player-bases have larger skill expression distribution and so if a faction has a high meta rep and also a high win rate it can show a major issue with the game.
We’ve broken our Faction vs Faction comparison down into two images to make it more digestible. Find your faction on the left to compare it’s win rate against factions on the right.
Battleplan Win Rates
Battle plan win rates are important because and a great way to encourage tournament organisers to change up what plans are played. More diverse battleplan picks can drastically change win rates for certain factions.
General’s Handbook 23-24 Month on Month Statistics
Faction representation and win rates have continued to fluctuate wildly at the start of 2024. However, Seraphon, Blades of Khorne and Gloomspite Gitz display a relatively high and consistent representation throughout the edition, pointing at their perceived strength by players, even when their win rates have dipped within that period.
Andtorian Locus Statistics
Only one army now falls above the Goldilock’s Zone for balance (45-55% win rates), but those that struggle below it continue to have a tough time in anticipation of a long-awaited Battlescroll.
Andtorian Locus Win Rates and Meta Representation
This is where the real spice of the stats are located, in our opinions! Most armies have a “pro” build and it’s those we really should rate armies on, and discuss balance changes to. These builds often rely on the synergies that come from a certain subfaction, so where that subfaction has the highest win rate and largest meta representation within their faction (those with the chunkiest coloured blocks in the graphic above) it’s clear there can be potential for balance issues.
We don’t have the player stats up and running yet, but we do have some insight into the hardest working players in the world and it’s unsurprising to see the top name. The man who hates to lose, Tom Guan!
In addition, we’ve also compiled some more regional player rankings:
