Tournament Leaders 1/28/14

Posted in News and tagged , , on by

DM232-3-colorHello everyone, medical and welcome to another look at the tournament stats! Before we get into the numbers, more about I just wanted to make sure everyone knows about the big changes that started this week. First of all, we’re currently running our huge Winter Sale, which cuts the gold prices of all items in our store by 50%! If you’ve been looking to pick up some event tickets to jump into the tournament queues, or wanting to get some packs to find the last few cards for your constructed decks, now is a great time to do it!

In addition to this limited-time sale, we’ve also made some longer term changes that are of particular interest to you, our tournament players. We’ve permanently reduced the Silver price of event tickets by 50%, and we’ve also altered the “First Online Win” daily reward to always award an event ticket! This should offer a nice cushion for the occasional bad draft, as well as allow more free-to-play users to participate in our tournaments.

Now on to the numbers! We pull our data each Thursday, which means these stats span from 1/16 to 1/23.

The draft list also has some familiar names.  cam101 has completed his quest to overtake bannedtim as the Lifetime win leader with nearly 1000 draft victories, in no small part due to his 47 undefeated drafts this week. bannedtim seems to have taken things a bit easy this week, but he’s still on our leaderbaord with 18 3-0 finishes, alongside some other familiar faces like Justice and Pascal3000.  zrandles is apparently a multi-format all-star, showing up near the top of both of our leaderboards in the same week.

It’ll be exciting to see what new faces break into our leaderboards over the next few weeks, as the Winter Sale and new event ticket changes bring fresh blood into the tournament queues!

mostpopularheroics

Draft Battle Techtician Heroic 74.85%
Draft Weirwood Patriarch Heroic 74.10%
Draft Grimgaunt Predator Heroic 65.51%
Draft Epidemic Heroic 62.45%

Weirwoodpatriarch3We’ve seen a lot of “what would you pick?” post on Facebook and the forums with regards to initial Heroic packs – so here’s a look at what you did pick. The top ten most popular Heroic cards seem to match many of the “top pick” lists floating around, with Battle Techtician edging out Weirwood Patriarch for the top spot. Players certainly seem to value the ability to pump the attack value of their team!  A pair of global spells a trio of tough to stop creatures fill out the middle of the list, with Epidemic edging out Ferocious Roar and Grimgaunt Predator rising to the top against Scrapforge Titan and Fleshfiend. Tempys seems to be the odd faction out on this list – the highest finishing Heroic for them was Master of Elements at 13th.

What do you think about this week’s  leaders? How would you rank your favorite Heroic cards in draft?

    Can this be considered a clear indication that Tempy is weak in drafting, or are we just missing out on a particular Tempys strategy that levels the playing field?

  2. DaRealUluMulu

    I really like competition and I like to see these lists. But plz doublecheck the database for small bucks ;) I am sure I got my victories in constructed and not in draft this week ;). Anyway, please give us more statistics ;D

  3. Wednesday

    Tempys just doesn’t have any heroics that are anywhere close to the same quality that we see in the other factions. Even Master of Elements is just a glorified Fangwood Ravager in most cases, since drafters seldomly want a high enough spell count to trigger Master of Elements consistently. Seismic Adept receives my vote for best Tempys heroic, followed by Avalanche Invoker.

  4. nli10

    Thats a good point actually – what is the must grab Tempys Heroic? Firestorm? Firefist or Cinderfist maybe? They (like Master of Elements and Static Shock) require certain cards to be effective, and archetype drafting isn’t really possible yet in SF.
