Most Selected Grand Alliance

This month I’ve included a split as calculated by the number of battletomes for each Grand Alliance, the column on the far right shows each Grand Alliances variance to this ideal share. Order maintains its 40%+ share of all armies at tournaments. While Death still props up the rest with 13.3% in Feb falling from 15.4% in January.

Grand Alliance Win Rates

Order remain the top faction with a win rate of 50.7% but this has dropped from 53.3% last month. While last months second placed Grand Alliance, Destruction has fallen to last place with a win rate of 46.3%. Chaos climbed from last place in January to 2nd place in February, increasing their win rate to 48.5% from 42.9%.

Most Selected Battletome

Stormcast Eternals are still the most selected faction with 14.7% choosing to play the faction. Fyreslayers claim the wooden spoon with 1.1% allowing the Hedonites of Slaanesh to move up a position and increase their share from 0.6% to 1.3% or armies played.

Battletome Win Rates

Many articles I’ve read and players I’ve spoken too have said that for balance to be in the game each Battletome needs to have a win rate of between 45-55%. This of course is a pipe dream and an extremely difficult task to achieve, that being said this does show which Battletomes possibly need to be reviewed by GW in the future. More so if a Battletome is consistently underperforming such as Skaven or Gloomspite Gitz

Top 20 Most Selected Sub-Faction

It’ll probably come as no surprise that the Hammers of Sigmar still lead the table in the most played sub-faction.

Win rates for Sub-Factions with 50+ Games

Legion of the First Prince leads the way here with a disgustingly good 61.1% over Jan and Feb. While Skaventide prop up the rest with 34%.

5-0’s & 4-1’s

Below is a list of the number of times a faction/subfaction combo has achieved a 4-0-1 or better at a 5 game tournament

(UPDATED) AoS Stats for January

I’ve updated the January AoS stats with a number of tournaments that happened at the end of the month, namely those in bold in the list below. Going forwards from February onwards, I’m only going to include tournaments where more than 16 players attended.

Be wary those, these are for all the one day and two day events that we’ve covered plus two or three more. All armies are at 2,000 points and using the current rules and FAQ’s.

The below list are the tournaments that have been used to populate this data.

Most Selected Grand Alliance

Table before LVO Update
Table after LVO update

With an increase of 455 additional armies to the table, the percentages have barely changed, with Order still top at 41.9% of all armies present at tournaments in January. The biggest change is to Death’s representation post the LVO, with their share increasing to 16.3% from 12.5%.

Grand Alliance Win Rates

Before LVO Update
After LVO Update

Order have claimed the top spot from Destruction post the LVO update, with Destruction falling to below 50% win rate overall. Death and Chaos pretty much remain the same.

Most Selected Faction

Stormcast Eternals are still the most selected faction after the update with 14.1% choosing to play the faction. Declan and three others were the only to represent Big Waaagh! at tournaments in January, but is Declan a trend setter?

Faction Win Rates

Cities of Sigmar take over from Idoneth Deepkin to lead the table here with a massive 69.0% win rate over 71 games. With Declan and the Big Waaagh! in second. However, let’s narrow this down to the more popular factions who have played at least 50 games:

A lot more factions in this table now with Cities and Idoneth dominating the win rates. Kruleboyz, Fyreslayers and Skaventide prop the rest up, all with win rates of less that 40% (this doesn’t bode well for my Kruleboyz at Burning Skies next month!).

Top 10 Most Selected Sub-Faction

Before LVO Update
After LVO Update

It’ll probably come as no surprise that the Hammers of Sigmar still lead the table in the most played sub-faction.

Skaventide have dropped completely from the table.

Top 10 Win rates for Sub-Factions with 20+ Games

Cities of Sigmar/Living City now top this table at 75.9% win rate over 29 games. While the Beasts of Chaos who are getting their (much needed) White Dwarf update shortly are sitting at the bottom of the table with just 28% wins from their 25 games.

AoS Stats for January

We’ve covered a lot of Top 3 lists over the last month, so I thought it would be good to look at some of the stats surrounding them.

Be wary those, these are for all the one day and two day events that we’ve covered plus two or three more. All armies are at 2,000 points and using the current rules and FAQ’s.

The below list are the tournaments that have been used to populate this data.

Most Selected Grand Alliance

Order tops the table with almost half of all armies being from an Order Battletome.

Grand Alliance Win Rates

The win rate for each Grand Alliance tells a difference story though with Destruction being the most successful and Chaos the least.

Most Selected Faction

Out of those 280 armies that we’ve focused on it’ll be no surprise that the Stormcast Eternals are the most played faction with nearly 20% of the field playing Stormcast. This would mean on average at a five day event you’re likely to play at least one Stormcast army.

Faction Win Rates

Idoneth Deepkin lead the table here with a massive 72.7% win rate over 22 games. However, let’s narrow this down to the more popular factions who have played at least 50 games:

This leaves the five most popular factions, with Ironjawz heading this mini-league with a 57.7% win rate.

Top 10 Most Selected Sub-Faction

It’ll probably come as no surprise that the Hammers of Sigmar lead the table in the most played sub-faction. The appeal of Dragons and Dracothian units is just too great possibly.

Surprisingly for me, Skaventide is in fourth despite having possibly once of the most outdated books?

Top 10 Win rates for Sub-Factions with 20+ Games

Idoneth Deepkin/Fuethan top the charts showing that perhaps they’re the easiest faction to pick up and play? My own beloved Kruleboyz/Big Yellers prop up the rest of the table with a measly 30.3% win rate.

Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar Analysis

So who’s their bogey enemy? Who do they lose to most often?

The data set is too small to have a any reliability at the moment, but Legion of the First Prince and Sons of Behemat/Breaker Tribe have had the most success against them.

If we reduce the opposition to Sub-Factions who have played them at least ten times then only the Ironjaws/Bloodtoofs have a favourable win ratio against them.

Ironjaws/Bloodtoofs Analysis

Again, the data set is to small to have any significance.
