Welcome to The Better Meta.

My goal for this site is to collect lots of quantitative analyses on Paladins competitive data. I’ll organize these analyses into readable charts that update automatically, so as the game is patched, people can take a look at how the patches actually affect gameplay. The first chart compares basic champion stats across time, and includes winrate, damage, popularity, and so forth.

I decided to make this site after hearing so much back-and-forth about the state of the Paladins meta. People were avoiding certain champions (Kinessa), and fervently picking others (Makoa). Were these picks justified? How would we ever figure it out without looking at the data?

Access to the underlying match data was kindly provided by Hi-Rez, and is freely available to anyone who requests an API key from them.
