Axie Infinity: Origins Meta Report - Season 9 Late Rare Era (24 Jun 2024)

Archetype Usage, Win Rates, and Matchups

Turnip ruining the party for the balance team this Rare Era, but it is not without its counter. Some top players are shifting to Sponge to counter the Turnip dominance at the top. Let's see how things will play out at the end of the Rare Era.


  • Turnip dominates the top but not without its counters

  • Number of players at Tiger or above is similar to last season

     Chick      14628 51624-66251
       Egg       9105 66252-75356

There are now has over 75000 players who played Axie Origins this seasno with over 400 players made it to Challenger. It is also interesting to see that the numbers at Tiger or above is similar to last season, which suggests the "additional" player count is mostly from Play to Rice playing a game or 2 a day without climbing much.

Archetype Usage

Overall archetype usage

Turnip seems to be the winner for this Rare Era where the Rare Runes and Charms are not as powerful compared to the value Turnip gives. Rare Era generally favours strong cards given the power level of Runes and Charms are weaker, and Turnip is one example. However it is likely that Turnip may fall off next Era as Aggro hits harder and faster but we will see.

Besides Turnip, we see Feather, Poison, Sponge, Glorious Mane, Sustain, Triple Owl, and Topaz in 1900-2000 VStar. In other words, other Turnip, things are not actually mostly okay.

Archetype Win Rates and Matchups

Overall Archetype Win Rates

As usual, some archetypes are better than others. The main one that stands out of course is Turnip at 79% win rate at the very top.

Archetype Matchups

The meta is continuing to evolve even within days. In this report, I collected data for Days 10-12 of the Rare Era. It seems like some of the top players are shifting to Sponge to counter Turnip. The end of the season is probably going to be a fun one for the top players to snipe each other with certain matchups. For the rest of us, just enjoy the diverse meta in whatever VStar brackets we are in.


Turnip ruined it for the balance team this Rare Era. Let's see how things will go in the Epic Era. My guess is that it is probably not going to Turnip but I may be wrong. Let's see.
