Brawls and Battle Helper - Update
Last week I wrote about Battle Assistants and Brawling, specifically, looking at the public data around who is loading funds to XBot's Battle Helper. If you don't know, XBot is a token-based battle automation service for Splinterlands, and Battle Helper is their Discord-based tool to recommend highly ranked lineups for any match, including brawls and tournaments.
Last week was the first brawl cycle that Battle Helper service was "open to the public" without a token, and it was a great kicking off point. Now, another brawl is finished, so let's take another look at how things are developing.
More Guilds and More Users are buying Battle Helper Credits
Whether you look at the number of guilds with at least one member using Battle Helper...
|Number of Guilds with BH Users (by Tier)||Current Cycle||Last Cycle||Total Guilds in Tier|
...or instead you look at the number of players...
|Total Users (by Tier)||Current Cycle||Last Cycle||Number of Frays|
|Other (includes players not in a brawl fray)||28||32||-|
Across the board, we are seeing more guilds with Battle Helper users, with the biggest increases at Tier 2 guilds.
Spotlight on Tier 4 Guilds
Let's take a look at the counts since last time at our most competitive Tier:
(Someone made a big move, see if you can spot it!)
|Tier 4 Guilds with BH Users||Current Cycle||Last Cycle|
|✨[RKO] Outta Nowhere ⚡ 🧨||14||12|
|Team Possible Hackers||5||5|
|YGG Brawlers (Ásgard)||4||4|
|The Guild of Neoxian||3||2|
|[KoG] Guardians of Glory||3||2|
|T&A Legion I||3||2|
|[KoG] Shield of Glory||1||-|
|[KoG] No Guts No Glory||1||2|
|The Grand Praetorian Army||1||1|
Let's do this again!
If you, like me, think this is an exciting place to watch, keep an eye on this blog. We'll keep watching this. And please feel free to suggest other data points we might want to explore!
Until next time, thanks for checking this out, and keep brawling!
