Guild Update

Posted in Arcana on November 30, 2012

Two weeks ago, we asked who was the best guild. And that's from the standpoint of "people who have registered with their guild on Planeswalker Points, not "which guild has the best aesthetics" or something fuzzy like that. We're measuring success here.

Here's how things stood at the time:

Izzet1,196,44010,234116.91
Azorius1,062,5198,564124.07
Dimir716,9186,489110.48
Simic687,2815,195132.30

Boros409,6094,32494.73
Orzhov379,8543,573106.31
Rakdos367,0864,51181.38
Gruul205,4471,726119.03

As we discussed at the time, Izzet has the most points, but that's probably because they have the most members. On a points-per-member basis, Izzet is behind Simic, Azorius, and even Gruul!

So let's check in again and see how everyone's doing. This race is far from over!

Rakdos454,8794,77595.26
Gruul262,2721,933135.68

So what's changed? Well, each guild has some new members! Here's how that breaks down:

GuildNew Members
Dimir515
Azorius511
Simic481
Izzet445
Boros358
Orzhov331
Selesnya293
Golgari264
Rakdos264
Gruul207

Izzet is still on top, but it's not pulling in the most new members! So its victory is not at all assured. If you haven't joined a guild at Planeswalker Points, you could be all that stands between your guild and victory!

But the actual metric is "total points." Let's see who's gotten points in the last two weeks!

GuildNew Points
Izzet241,474
Azorius240,495
Dimir164,411
Simic149,849
Golgari115,227
Selesnya97,502
Orzhov96,109
Boros92,090
Rakdos87,793
Gruul56,825

Well... Izzet got the most. There's not a lot of drama there. But Azorius is right behind! Part of that is because Izzet didn't have any Grand Prix winners in the last two weeks, while Azorius had one:

Grand Prix Bochum: Martin Juza (Simic)
Grand Prix Taipei: Makihito Mihara (Azorius)

That's one win for Simic and one win for Azorius, which matches up well with their excellent points-per-member numbers. If you're thinking about winning a Grand Prix in the near future, make sure you've chosen your guild at Planeswalker Points!
