Two weeks have passed since my initial look at the Competitive QC Duel Meta. Since then I have further collected data and we can now look at the Champion pickrates that established after the changes to Clutch and nerf to B.J.'s Dual wild.
The Ranking below shows how often Champions are picked for a match. For the initial meta report I used proportion of picks for all champions. A Champion that is picked in ever single match will now show as a 100% pickrate instead of 33% of all picks. This should make the numbers more intuitive and show differences more clearly.
The data was collected from the available vods (thanks to plusforward.net and cooke) of the later rounds of the following tournaments: 125 FPS QC Duel Sunday Cup #3 & #4, COOLLERZ Saturday Online Cup #2, ESL Wold Championship NA Qualifier #2 & #3, ESL Wold Championship EU Qualifier #2 & #3 & #4.
Nyx keeps her place at the top with an almost unchanged pickrate of 75%. While her pickrate is still very even across all maps, the numbers show a trend to avoid her on Corrupted Keep (still #1 pick tied with Ranger) which may be affected by Clutch who is picked there especially often. Trailing by only 2% is Ranger, now almost tied for the first place. More players than before are confident to pick him on every map now. If the trend keeps true, Ranger might be the most picked Champion soon.
While Visor also saw a slight increase from 37% to 42%, he is now definitely a tier below the top duo. Blood Covenant is no longer his strongest map and his weakest map, similar to both Nyx and Ranger, is now Corrupted Keep. Up four Ranks is Clutch. People seem to take their time getting comfortable with his new movement, but there is a definite trend here, going from 22% to 28%. Some players, like agent, now play Clutch as a staple while others are only picking him on Corrupted Keep.
Leading the third tier of mediocre champions is Anarki, down from 28% to 22%. Interestingly his former strongest map Blood Run is now his weakist. There is not mich going on with Scalebearer, he gained two ranks but his pickrate remained the same. Sorlag goes down from 25% to 16% and is now most prominent as a flex pick on Corrupted Keep but not seen all too often. Down 4 ranks, only half as less popular as before, is B.J.. Note that despite the nerf to his dual wield and the following abandonment, his 30% pickrate on Corrupted Keep (compared to 13% on his second best map) remained unchanged!
Gelenas pickrate manages to go down even further, from 7% to 5% and she is now almost on Slash level at all maps but Blood Run (13%). Speaking of, Slash goes from 2% to 4% and remains irrelevant.
