The LVO 2018 Warhammer 40k Championships hit 512!

Well, wow, we did it! We hit the magic 512 player cap for the Warhammer 40k Champs event at the LVO 2018. We’ve also got the wait list link for those of you who missed out.

We honestly never knew if this was even possible to do and joked about “what if we hit 512!” back in the old days of tournament organizing when we were over the moon to hit 100 players. So, it’s been quite the journey and now we’re already talking about what it would look like to crack that barrier and head on up towards 1,024?! That’d be something else.

Bot for now, we’re stoked to be able to say that that horizon has been reached. Thanks so much to everyone coming who helped make this possible. If you missed out, sign up for the wait list, below. We pretty much always have drops as we go, so you may get lucky and get one of those as they become available.

See you all in Vegas! Time to make some more terrain…..

    Hey guys, I’m really sad to see the cap hit. I just have been waiting for funds to purchase a ticket and today was the day, I think I may have just missed out. I appreciate the waitlist and really hope that something works out as I have already booked flights and whatnot from Alaska. Hoping luck is on my side here, but thanks so much for having a way to make it happen if it can.

      (dude people drop all the time; get on that wait list ASAP!)

      Don’t despair ol’ chum – get on that waiting list!

    • Reecius December 5, 2017 3:07 pm #

      Damn, that sucks! Yeah, get on the wait list pronto. We always have drops though, so you should be OK, might just take a few days to a few weeks.

    Yeah I can just about guarantee that there will be drops. I recall that the last day to get a refund was a month before the event, so end of December. Im sure plenty of people that bought tickets will drop right around then. You should be just fine if you got on the list today. I recall hearing that only about 80% of paid entrants show up.

    • Reecius December 5, 2017 3:08 pm #

      Yeah, in 2017 we had a 20% no show ratio which is bananas, it’s usually 10%, With this many people it is likely that we will have probably several at least drops before the deadline.

    Wow! 512 people! So 9 rounds to determine a single undefeated champion? Buckle up buckaroo.

    • Reecius December 5, 2017 3:17 pm #

      Yeah, going to be quite the spectacle!

      Will we be lucky enough to have you again this year, buddy?

  6. rivercity_gaming December 5, 2017 4:09 pm #

    So lists are due for manual review in triplicate when?

    • Reecius December 5, 2017 4:30 pm #

      lolol, no, haha. We will get it set up for people to start registering on BCP very soon, though.

    • jifel December 5, 2017 9:29 pm #

      Soon, we will have privately contracted list checking firms to go over submitted lists 😉

      • Reecius December 6, 2017 8:35 am #

        Lol, right? Just patiently waiting on that list building app….

    Awesome! I’ll be on the AoS and Shadespire side of things, but it’s great to see 40k doing this awesomely too!

    • Reecius December 6, 2017 8:35 am #

      Shadespire and AoS are doing quite well, too! Going to be a bumper year without a doubt.
