With three weeks of competition down the leaderboard continues to be dominated by a trio of top tier bhumbas, and the battle is on for the hearts of the Battlesnake Community in the 2022 Spring League competition.
Who are the Top Tier Bhumba's of the Week?
A quick glance at the leaderboard this week shows little has changed in the top 3 positions, with Jaguar Meets Snake, Combat Reptile and Shapeshifter continuing to fight for Spring League supremacy, putting even more distance between themselves and the remaining Elite Tier Battlesnakes.
Despite that distance, however, there is little doubt that the leaderboard is full of some highly competitive Battlesnakes. And so, we thought this week would be a good opportunity to take a look at a few of the talented (yet less well-known) developers and their newly minted Spring League snakes.
