ETC Match-up Analysis

Posted below is some analysis undertaken by an ETC "analyst" that looks at the results of specific matchups at this year's ETC.

While it doesn't differentiate between different list build - and appreciate that the total data points are 768 - it does give some insight into how certain matchups played out.

An entry has only been included where the matchup occurred at least 5 times.

Some points I noted:
  • Dark Elves, High Elves and Daemons were very strong across the field
  • Dark Elves had no "bad" matchups whereas DoC struggled versus Lizards and High Elves vs. Dark Elves (this last one was important given they are the two most prevalent armies)
  • Skaven and Empire have higher good matchups than most - but that matchup process is important
  • WoC and Woodies were general underperformers (more surprised by the latter than the former)


  1. Hi Pete, Dumbo here.
    What do the numbers and the colour coding mean?

    1. Average points out of 20 for the matchup. Number of matchups.

      Red = Shit. Why did you get me in this.
