Competitive Innovations in 10th: Grey Nice

We're in a bit of a holding pattern this week, as there weren't too many big events and (as sometimes happens when a balance update hits) people have fallen back on some reliably brutal builds to stomp on anyone...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Cybork Bullying pt.2

It's me (Wings) in charge again today, freeing me to be monstrously self-indulgent and write about a Showdown I was in. I won't say that no one can stop me, because there are several people who probably could, but...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Cybork Bullying pt.1

It's a whole new metagame (a few stragglers excepted) and the delightful scent of novelty is in the air. For some reason, it smells like fungus beer. We've got new points to take old favourites down a peg, and lots...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: A Challenger Approaches pt.3

We've got Lowest of Men in charge today as we turn into the home straight, covering the final five tournaments from another bumper weekend. That includes: 2024 St. Louis Annual Last Minute Tournament (SALT) 4. Nurglemania (2-täger) War At The...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: A Challenger Approaches pt.2

Me again. Did you know there was a whole tonne of Warhammer this past weekend? That includes one event (Warzone: Dice Goblin) which I shamefully failed to notice had used the Dataslate and new Ork/Custodes books, so well done...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Variety Show pt.2

Two flavours of Space Marine, Daemons, Tau, some elves still somehow - lots more variety on show today as Lowest of Men takes the lead for part 2. Today we're covering: The Los Angeles Classic GT '24 Vanquish 2024 ADFWGA-ANZAC Cup...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Silver Surfeit

A relatively quiet one this week, presumably because everyone was too busy hunting for eggs and feasting on chocolate, or whatever you get up to over Easter in the country of your preference. I assume it's nice. Four events this...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: The Imperium Strikes Back pt.1

TheChirurgeon: Welcome back to another week of Competitive Innovations, where we recap the weekend’s GTs and Majors, talk about the matchups, and analyze the top lists. Normally you’d see James “One_Wing” Grover in this space talking about events, but...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Silver Tide pt.1

Welp, it's finally happened, this week we're going to three parts. That's because the past weekend was an absolutely astounding blowout of 40K, featuring ~1200 players participating in 16 GT+ events (around half of them majors) and that doesn't even account for...

Hammer of Math: Save Distribution in Warhammer 40k

This week's Hammer of Math expands on the work from last week and looks at how Saves are distributed across the competitive scene. Last week we looked at how toughness characteristics were distributed in Warhammer 40k tournament lists and talked...
