I have a new metric for you today: TD30 per Faction, where I calculate the TD30 for each faction against the other factions. So not only can you now see how a faction is performing overall, you can see how they stack up against the other factions in the long term. You can check these out on each Factions Performance Metric Page, such the Eldar one here: https://arkhonareports.wordpress.com/faction-performance/eldar/
The Loyalists had a distinct decline this week, sadly reversing signs they they were improving. They did not start in a very weak position, but dropped consistently throughout the week, with losses to both Eldar and Chaos not being made up by some incidental incursions into Ork territory. Both of their performance metrics have dropped sharply as a result, and their TD30 is once again in the negative..
The Orks have followed a similar trend, also reversing some recent improvements, and are now barely ahead of the Loyalists. Once again, their low population has hurt them against the Eldar, with heavy losses not being able to be reclaimed due to the scant number of matches. Their performance against Loyalist and Chaos forces was more mixed, though tending towards the negative in general. While their TD30 continues to rise based on historic gain, their TD7 is dropping again, and will shortly begin affecting their TD30.
The Eldar have had the clearest and most distinct increase in performance over a week that has occurred since I started recording, with an almost straight line across the chart. They made significant gains against all three factions, and although they fell back against the Orks, they more than made up with gains against Chaos and the Loyalists. With a rise in both performance metrics, the Eldar are now clearly the dominant faction across all measures.
Chaos recovered from a short slump, and the maintained a steady territorial control just over the quarter mark. Their late week losses against the Eldar were completely offset by gains against the Loyalists and the Orks. Their TD30 is recovering, but their TD7 is currently flat.
This week saw the Loyalists and the Orks both in strong decline, Chaos holding steady, and the Eldar capitalising on the weaknesses of the Loyalists and Orks. The territorial rankings as of now are:
Eldar: 31.8% (+5.2)
Chaos: 26.0% (-3.2)
Orks: 21.4% (-1.5)
LSM: 20.8% (-0.5)
The TD30 rankings are:
Eldar: 118.0 TD30 ( +9.5)
Chaos: 34.0 TD30 ( -8.0)
LSM: -7.0 TD30 (-25.0)
Orks: -145.0 TD30 (+23.5)
