Hello! As y’all know, I do a lot of Aether Raids defense business. In the past few months, I’ve been working with spreadsheets a lot, because I had an Informational Systems class where we worked with Excell regularly. So then I decided to practice my Execel spreadsheet skills a bit by starting up this! It started out pretty small, but thanks to the help from consistent contributers and readers, this thread has grown a ton and we’ve collected a really awesome amount of data. If it’s your first time checking out this post, welcome!
The data has been a long-term project, and I regularly work in this thread, so thanks everyone for helping, reading, and supporting! I’m really glad this usage statistics thread has become a pretty cool place lol. While I am not currently collecting any more data, because the AR-D meta is pretty stable and I’ve gotten busy, I will be posting a large final data summary eventually. Other than that, we still discuss AR in general here. Have fun!
Old Instructions for Posting Screenshots (NOT CURRENTLY COLLECTING DATA)
This thread is for general Aether Raids discussion, and also where Tier 21+ users provide screenshots of defenses they’re battling throughout the week, so that I can record them into the stats. I’m always looking for more contributers, so if you’re in T21+, I’d love any data contribution, and if you’re not, feel free to stay for just discussion and analaysis lol. I do weekly analyses on the data, and sometimes other stuff.
If you’re in Tier 21+ and would like to participate, just post the date of when you did the battle, the tier you were in during the battle (or the tier of the defense user - really I just need some approximation), and then the six units on the defense. You can type out the six units, or just give a screenshot (preferable so I know it’s not made-up).
Old Updates & Statistics
EDIT: Here’s the top 10 list and number of times they’ve been recorded, so far (the rightmost column is the number of times they’ve been used total).
EDIT 9/13/19: Here’s the newest version! I added a nice chart and whatnot.
EDIT 9/13/19 (Later): Just found out that somehow I skipped HS Micaiah in the table that accumulates and counts everything, so now I added her into that big table on the left, so now she’s on the charts now. Updated charts are posted right below the earlier screenshot. There was also an issue where I skipped a place in the table I think? Hard to check for typos and whatnot, but I’m doing my best to keep eyes peeled lol.

- Unique Rank: The rank of how commonly the unit is used. When it’s a tie, the unit that’s first alphabetically is put first. However, that doesn’t come into play too much near the top of the usage statistics.
- Instances: The raw number of times the unit has been used out of recorded teams. The instances count is used to create the Unique Rank statistics.
- Usage Percent: How often the unit is used out of all surveyed units. For example, Legendary Azura has consistently made up approximately 9-10% of the total units used in Aether Raids defense.
