The New Meta Is Here: Warhammer 40k Tournament Results

by | Jul 25, 2022

Now are getting into the new Meta groove, with 8 large events with over 28 players and at least 5 rounds. We saw no single faction dominate, but it is pretty clear which factions are doing the most damage. Necrons and Sisters of Battle on the top followed closely by a host of other armies including the new kid Chaos Space Marines. The Meta is looking “healthy”, with the major problem being certain factions having access to really easy Secondaries.

Faction variety has as expected is starting to contract, but we are still seeing lots of different armies having ways to deal with almost any list. We should though follow how Necrons are performing because while many don’t think they are as powerful as Sisters of Battle, you can see from the battle point totals that they are getting high scores with ease. It means even in games where an opponent might look like they are winning if you walked up a table, it is the secondary game and board control that helps this faction win big.

Below is the event results from the weekend of the July 16th 2022, just to get us caught up.
