Quake Champions Duel competitions are up and running and it is time to look at the developing champions meta. Using Data from the later rounds of past duel tournaments I analysed how often and on which map champions get picked by top duel players. With 546 champion picks overall we are already able to observe some trends while the full picture is still being drawn.
Nyx is by far the most picked champion so far. On every map. In fact her pickrate is only mimimally affected by map picks and is picked by players in 3/4 matches at the moment. More surprising then Rangers second place is Visor coming in third. He is picked most often on Blood Covenant.
The two champions with aircontrol find themselves at place 5 and 6 in the ranking. Their pickrate seems to be tied to certain players, it will be interesting to see if more players will warm up to them over time.
Both B.J. Blazkowicz and Scalebearer are very map dependant picks, they see a lot of play on the small Corrupted Keep and are barely touched on Blood Run.
On the Bottom we have Gelena and Slash. While Gelena seems to have found a niche on Blood Run, Slash was ignored by everyone. Everyone but hell and chypher that is who tried their luck with her on Ruins of Saranth.
The data was collected from the available vods (thanks to plusforward.net) of the later rounds of the following tournaments: 125 FPS QC Duel Sunday Cup #2, COOLLERZ Saturday Online Cup #1, ESL Wold Championship NA Qualifier #2, ESL Wold Championship EU Qualifier #1, ESL Wold Championship EU Qualifier #2.
