Hello fellow Hexers,

It’s that time again. Let’s have a look at the data for the month of September in Hex. Before we dive into the data, let’s look at the events that happened in September that could have an effect on general activity.

  • On Saturday September 9th, the Cosmic Crown Showdown, the Bash and the FiveShards Weekly tournament were all running at the same time, preventing several players from participating in one or the other.
  • On Monday September 18th, Lazgar’s Vengeance got banned from Standard Constructed, including the ladder and the Bash.
  • There were no FiveShards Weekly tournament on Saturday September 30th.

When a value has two percentage values next to it, the first represents the change of that value compared to the previous month, while the second represents the change of that value compared to the equivalent month of the previous set (3rd month of Scars of War, May of 2017).
