Welcome to the Fifth Edition of Team Rankstar’s Wild Meta Snapshot for 2019! In this meta report, we will be going through a tier list of 55 decks we’ve seen frequently on ladder, explain the method of computing the tier list, break down the meta and analyze the decks as detailed as they need to be. In this report, we have included a new section named Class Power Ranking and will be further discussing the state of each class in terms of power and diversity.
We collected our experts’ opinion through a spreadsheet, where our Top Wild legend players will rate the given decks with a corresponding score from 1 to 4 in increments of 0.5 (with 1 being top Tier 1 and 4 being bottom Tier 4). We then collect the result, standardize and categorize them in 4 different Tiers. This is what they mean:
Tier 1 (Meta-defining)
Highly-optimized decks with extreme raw power that are very well positioned in the meta.
Tier 2 (Legend-viable)
Competitive decks that are not as well-rounded, but can snatch games off of Tier 1 decks or prey on their direct counters.
Mind Blast Priest
Inner Fire Priest
Burn Big Priest
Darkest Hour Warlock
Tier 3 (Average)
Fringe decks that can capitalize on pocket metas that allow it, however, are either suboptimal or outmeta.
Tier 4 (Underwhelming)
Decks at a weaker power level that require an extensive understanding to be able to pilot well, however, are not recommended for ladder experience.
Within each tier, decks are categorized to either High tier, Mid tier or Low tier to further differentiate their power level.
For Class Power Ranking analysis, we allocate points for each deck from Tier 1 to Tier 3 then sum them up. The point system for rating a single deck is as below:
Tier 1: 18 (High), 15 (Mid), 12 (Low)
Tier 2: 9 (High), 7 (Mid), 5 (Low)
Tier 3: 3 (High), 2 (Mid), 1 (Low)
Each deck is also assigned a popularity ranking and a respective coefficient multiplier based on its popularity. The highest multiplier is 12 and the lowest is 7. For example, if Odd Paladin is High Tier 1 and has a multiplier of 12, it will bring the class an additional 216 points.
Therefore, a class can be placed highly on the Ranking system based on one (or both) of these elements: having a few strong decks (deck power) or having many decks (class diversity). If classes share the same score, the class with more top decks will be ranked higher.
