Splinterlands Meta Snapshot: Diamond League

in #splinterlands2 years ago

The time has come to analyze the statistics for the diamond league, this is a rather tough league in which you see teams with all the characters at the highest level, the entry to the champion league that every splinterland player aspires to be.

I have made some adjustments to my algorithm and I have cleaned a little the database, to bring more reliable data. I realized that the way I was placing the percentages of use was very high, this is because sometimes a character can appear 2 times in the same battle if each of the players uses it, so a card can have a 200% use, which seemed incoherent to me, to solve this simply divided the result in half, understanding that the percentage of use is precisely the percentage of times that the character is chosen to participate in a battle.

I was also counting the number of battles that I consulted from the database but I was not subtracting the battles that I erased when I updated it, which also modified the percentage of use, they were very few battles and did not affect much the result but in the future, when I start erasing data by age could have been a problem.

Well but I will not distract them with more talk and let's see the results for this league of which I have compiled 2794 battles.

  • Selenia Sky is the second most used summoner in this league and also with a very good winrate, very different from previous leagues where we saw almost no legendary summoners.
  • The despised Malric Inferno is not doing so badly in this league, in fact of the "rare alpha-beta summoners" is the one with the best winrate.
  • Like the previous leagues there are three monsters that we see even in the soup, I mean the chicken, Lord A and the Ooze.
  • The most Used untamed card in this league is the Parasitic Growth with 53% winrate. I wonder if it has any relation to the rise of Malric? what do you think? leave me your comment.

Good analysis. I can see Malric being popular with a heap of these melee-heavy cards. Also the speed-boosting fire supports, like flame imp and goblin shaman.

And besides the many debuffs there are for magicians and archers now.
Thanks for stopping by.

Nice information! A great Splinterlands post! ~@clove71

Thank you very much for your support.

I don't think increasing the use of Parasitic Growth is because of Malric Inferno. In Fire Splinter they already have Serpentine Spy with more damage and faster speed. The only thing Parasitic Growth is better is the scavenger ability.

Yes but remember that you can use both on the same team, and Malric's bonus helps the parasite a lot.
