Data for October 1st-2nd with these states/locations:

Texas, Austin

Rulers not on the list in the spoiler DID top 8 but show zero because I calculated that top 8 % number only using two complete data sets for the total appearances and top 8. Example: I have the top 8 for New Jersey and the total # of players but not who played everything else.

An even crazier example: So far I only have word of two players using Wu-Kong. One of them got top 8. That puts it on Charlotte level status. I left it out though because the tournament where it got top 8 I don't know if that was the only one represented or if there were some in other states/locations.

Knowing how likely a ruler is to get into top 8 is much more important than knowing how many people are playing it and that's why I've been so careful to use only full data sets.

% of Ruler/J-Rulers that got into top 8

Total known Ruler distribution

Total known top 8 appearances

What this means so far:

(1) Zero is good like everyone thought but not as good as everyone thought.
(2) Charlotte Darkness/Water control is disgustingly good.
(3) Valentina 2.0 is disgustingly good. One of the promos coming this month is Barrier of Shadows so that will help new players shut her down. If you are an older player with old copies of barrier please trade them to new players once you pick up your promos. The last thing we need is people getting frustrated if a Val 2.0 resurgence occurs and leaving the game.
(4) Arla's additional 2 counters on Artemis, the God's Bow were enough for him to out-value Charlotte when used in a Darkness/Water/Light build.
(5) Water/Bow is super common so aggro decks should use Dreams of Flight and/or Rapid Growth
(6) Imperishable is still VERY good if it's STATIC. Sure J-Rulers without it as a keyword can do stuff on their front-side if they die but the fact is a lot of rulers don't generate enough value on their front side.

I don't know why but when I am on the "Edit Page" screen for this post and I hit preview I can see the images I linked. When I am on the actual posts page I cannot.
