PS2 Alert Metagame Analysis: 4th Jan - 4th Feb 2021

Posted by:  Charoplet 04.02.2021

One month ago PS2Alerts Beta had been released. Today [DIG] Maelstrome26, the creator of PS2Alerts informed people about the PS2 Alert Metagame Analysis after 31 days of tracking:

Hello everyone to the first monthly Alert Metagame Anaylsis for the month of January 2021! This will be a monthly series where I detail the changes between each month and how well each metric / faction is doing towards the overall metagame.
All data and information is sourced from the PS2 Alert Tracker.Data is correct as of Friday 4th Feb 15:40 UTC.

Alert Victories All Activity Levels (every server w/ PS4)
  • Activity levels are calculated based off an average of alert population. They are broken down into the following brackets:
    • Prime = 4+ platoons each side
    • High = 3-4 platoons
    • Med = 2-3 platoons
    • Low = 1-2 platoons
    • Dead = <1 platoon
Current leader: VS!

Over the past few weeks NC really have upped their game and have started to challenge VS for the top spot in the all bracket tier, with only 27 alerts between them. TR is lagging behind in every single metric possible right now, including server level brackets, in exception to Cobalt TR, where they are sitting at 31% Prime wins, whereas on all over servers they are sub 30%. TR is really suffering right now!

VS remains the dominant force globally for all prime bracket wins, in exception to VS on Emerald who are behind NC by 3% (3 alerts between them!). Miller VS are tryharding and leading the faction with a whopping 48% win ratio.
Best faction performers VS (all alerts): Cobalt VS with an impressive 46% victory rate.
VS (prime alerts) Miller VS with a staggering 48% win rate! Two weeks ago this was Emearld VS, just goes to show how early in the metagame stage how the numbers can swing!
NC (all alerts): Ceres NC with 43% victory rate. On PC, The win goes to Miller with a 41% victory rate. BHO ghostcap stronk mateys, Mikey needs his Blues!
NC (prime alerts) Emerald has taken the crown from Connery with edging a 35% versus 34% win rate. Two weeks ago this was SolTech.
TR (all alerts): Terrans are consistently underperforming across the board with sub 30% win rates on all servers except Genudine who's on 33%. Please note, Genudine's Alert data is a little behind due to recent DDOS attempts, causing alerts to crash and skewing the stats, so I chose to turn them off for a period.
TR (prime alerts): Out of the best they can do, Cobalt TR is leading the faction with a 31% win rate.

Best PlayersGloballyCurrently, we're using raw killing potential to determine this award, which could be rebranded into a "Alert Farmer League", who knows. Globally, the top player for kills is [1RPC] ursuak (NC) hailing from Miller with a whopping 9,721 kills. His KD is 3.21 (3,030 deaths).

Best OutfitsGloballyGlobal award goes to, unsurprisingly, yet again, [SKL] KSoKaars Legion (VS) with massive 327,072 kills, 404,070 deaths and a measily 0.81 KD. They also have captured 1,971 bases. A true zergfit fitting of the game's meta.
Note, I realise that for many people they would like to see "kills per player" of an outfit stats. I'll be working on those soon.
However, Outfitless players on NC Emerald outshine any singular outfit by approx 18k more kills. Emerald NC,

Best Vehicle CategoriesThe stat breakdowns on this are a little light as there is a TON of data for vehicles, please visit the website for a increased breakdowns, below is a summary.
Sorted by KD, here are the top 3 vehicles types (excluding bastion as the API doesn't give us "bastion died" data.
SpecialColossus with 16.69KD, 38,507 kills in total.
MBT / TankMagrider with a 5.62KD, 375,993 kills in total.
AircraftLiberator with a 5.53KD, 238,333 kills in total.
Note on this, the Scythe is massively underperforming with a 2.05KD, whereas the Mosquito is at 2.52 and the reaver is at 2.57.

Hottest BasesA recent addition to the data collecton, we are starting to get a picture of the most captured bases. They are:

Facility
Type
Continent
Captures
Cobalt Geological Outpost
Construction / 1 min
Amerish
1,248
Berjess Overlook
Construction / 1 min
Indar

Construction / 1 min
Esamir
883
Sunken Relay Station

Tapp Waystation

Unsurprisingly they're all the 1-minute bases, there's going to naturally be more of them. Below are the top Amp, Tech and Biolabs:
  • Tech: Eisa Tech (Esamir) with 269 caps
  • Biolab: Acan Biolab (Hossin) with 358 caps
  • Amp: Baldur Amp Station (Esamir) with 301 caps

And there you have it! Vehicles, class information, Faction Combat metrics and much much more are available on the official PS2 Alerts website
