The Unified Tournament Circuit is a regional circuit for Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar which covers the area between Virginia and Newfoundland. In case you missed our announcement, you can find it here.
Last Weekend’s Events
Last weekend’s biggest events were the 40k GT at the Toronto Gaming Expo (TGX) and the GTs at the 2023 Salt City event, covering both 40k and Age of Sigmar.
TGX 40k Singles Event
This 87-player event ran over six rounds and two days and was making full use of the most recent slate of balance changes and points updsates. We’ve already covered the results of this event in this week’s Competitive Innovations. Despite the nerfs, Tim Deetlefs took first place with his Aeldari list, winning a close match over Nick Jagiello’s Necrons.
- Tim Deetlefs (Death or Glory) – Aeldari
- Nick Jagiello (Halton Heretics) – Necrons
- Adam Houser (Stud or Scrub) – Genestealer Cults
- Éric Marcoux (Death or Glory) – Aeldari
Salt City 2023
Salt City played host to two different GT events this weekend – one each for Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar. The 40k even was the larger of the two, running seven rounds over three days and starting on July 7.
The Salt City 40k GT
Salt City used a hybrid approach to the balance updates: They used the updated rules for Fate Dice but chose to not implement the updated points values as the changes dropped too close to the event. We’ve already covered the results of this event over in this week’s Competitive Innovations. This event was notable for featuring six Aeldari lists in the top 10, though first place went to Steven Crawley of Team Death or Glory running Imperial Knights. Steven edged out Brad Chester by the narrowest of margins to take first place, beating Brad’s OGW score by 0.01 – both players finished 6-1. Though had it gone to battle points Cullen Burns (5th) would have won with his Aeldari list. Steven had an impressive showing, going 3-1 against pre-nerf Aeldari at the event.
- Steven Crawley (Death or Glory) – Imperial Knights
- Brad Chester (Death or Glory) – Aeldari
- Chris Martens (DMG) – Aeldari
- Sam Bouabane (Death or Glory) – Aeldari
- Cullen Burns (US Army Esports) – Aeldari
The Salt City Age of Sigmar GT
This 33-player GT played out over 5 rounds and 2 days was hosted by DaBoyz GT events. We’ve already covered the results in greater detail in this week’s Competitive Innovations in the Mortal Realms article.
