Hey guys everything is underway, we have an Ork War Convocation matchup live on Twitch. Look up the player’s lists on the BCP player app. John McCool, and Jason Wolfe.

Ryan Mead is being a good sport about the bet he lost.

Update 2:07 Round 2:

We had one amazing match up between Aaron Aelong and Nick Rose in round 1. It was a close game and could have easily been a top table game at the event.

There were no real upsets this round however there are some intense match ups to watch.

– James Carmona v Michael Snider
– Aaron Aelong v Aaron Hayden

Two top competitors versus two top players from a hot young up and coming team. This is a great test to prove if Relentless D is a serious contender or not.

Update 3:06

Update 5:35


Geoff “Incontrol” is playing the number 1 ranked ITC player in the world, Matt Root. Head over to our Facebook page for live coverage there.

There were also two more amazing matches between,

  • Brett Perkins vs Andrew Gonyo: Tie, a game that came down to the last dice roll.
  • PJ Pants vs Brandon Grant: A game that deatured the reigning ITC champion taken down by a player very much in the hunt to take his crown.

Update, end of day

Looks like there were a lot of ties at the end of round 3. Right now we currently have 39 players with a 3-0 record and another 19 players with a 2-0-1 record. These 58 players pretty much have a legitimate shot at the top 8 if any of them wins out on day 2. Any other players need a LOT more draws and plenty of luck if they want to make it into the top 8 with a 5-1 record.

Below is the facebook live video of Matt Root playing Geoff Robinson. It was a great game and is a good watch, with plenty of sass, comedy, and tactical play.

      Fixed it Captain A. I wanted to save the gallery posts for the gallery page.

      Photo Gallerys are hard to put out on my phone.

    Yeah, resize please? 🙂

    Round 1 livestream: Ended due to time on turn 4.

    Games not ending naturally has gotten out of hand. Needs to be fixed BADLY.

      Who knew threwing rules on top of rules on top of rules, increasing the number of things you can take (by giving out *free points* formations), and allowing for things like Summoning would increase the time constraints!

    • Sam sanchez February 3, 2017 2:14 pm

      Hopefully streamlined 8th Ed fixes this without having tournaments forced to cut large chunks of points.

    • Alex R February 3, 2017 10:37 pm

      That’s the problem of the players and their lists

      • Threllen February 4, 2017 10:47 am

        No, that’s the problem of game/tournament design. No one should have to tailor their list to something they don’t want to play because of time constraints.

    That Tau suit roasting nids on his base is amazing!

    • Sactownbri February 3, 2017 10:47 pm

      Have to agree that is an amazing display board combo.

  7. Cephalobeard February 3, 2017 2:05 pm

    Would of been cool to have all 40k on the Stream for next year. Maybe a separate one for Warmhordes. Definitely turned off the stream during that.

      Come back for round 3!

  8. GreenInk February 3, 2017 7:50 pm

    Wow, a full half of the top 20 players in ITC have drawn or lost a game after 3 rounds, effectively putting them out of the running for top 8. Some clutch wins there from Brandon and Matt against tough opponents, and an uncharacteristic tie from Aaron Aleong. Plus a Dark Eldar player getting max points day 1!

    • winterman February 4, 2017 1:08 am

      Right now about 5 players will have 5 straight wins end of day tomorrow. So 3 players with a tie could creep in if they blow out thier remaining 5 games.

      • GreenInk February 4, 2017 1:50 am

        winterman, you are absolutely right. I jumped the gun before I did the math. Good news for some!

  9. C-Stock February 3, 2017 9:41 pm

    Harlequin player going 2-1 getting max points against War Con and Eldar…

    Looks like no one has an answer for the SW Mastadon on day one. Really interested to see how Don Hoosier does day two.
