T’au Superior Firepower Beat Back The Bugs: Warhammer 40k Tournament Results

by | Jun 12, 2022

The reign of Tyranids is soon coming to an end and even without the Tyranid changes being official, this weekend saw them begin to falter. Tyranids only had one 1st place crown and “only” 8 total placings out of 27 possible podiums. The real winner from the weekend was the T’au Empire as they won the largest events and scored the most 1st place podiums from the nine detailed  events.

Beyond the T’au Empire performing better than expected, post Tyranid codex release, we saw a surprising drop of Aeldari for no apparent reason. Now  only two weeks away from the new Chapter Approved; we will get a few customary weeks of inconsequential results, where we really won’t learn much about where the meta is heading for the rest of the year.
