The Top 4 of the ATLANTIC CITY OPEN and SAN DIEGO OPEN

Well, well well, with this weekend over and two large events taking place with the Atlantic City Open along with the San Diego Open there’s some heavy hitting lists that popped up.

As a side note, Atlantic City had over 180 participants! That’s insane and the event was a rousing success. Unfortunately there was no stream for the tournament however things went super smooth and people had an awesome time with it so thank you all who attended! Next one is going to be the Lone Star Open so make sure you’re ready for that! You can get your tickets by clicking on the image below.

For those of you hoping that the recent Balance Slate would make things more interesting along with the recent nerfs to Tyranids with Encircle the Prey and the Maleceptor taking a hit, I regret to inform you that Tyranids are still running strong.

Coming from the Meta Monday post off of r/WarhammerCompetitive thanks to user JCMS85 here are the win percentages for this weekend

Pulling from this data, the Top 5 Win% armies over this weekend with over 100 games played were:

  • Tyranids (524 games played) – 65%
  • Harlequins (139 games played) – 62%
  • Custodes (267 games played) – 57%
  • Drukhari (102 games played) – 56%
  • T’au (406 games played) – 53%
  • Craftworld (409 games played) – 53%

The Most Played Armies over the weekend not including Space Marines were:

  • Tyranids – 524 Games
  • Craftworld – 409 Games
  • T’au – 406 Games
  • Imperial Knights – 297 Games
  • Custodes – 267 Games
  • Chaos Knights – 214 Games

Now let’s take a look at the Top 4 lists that ended up winning Atlantic City Open and the San Diego Open

Atlantic City Open

We’ve got a more decent spread here than we do with the San Diego Open with Eldar and Thousand Sons making it into the top 4 along with Tyranids and T’au.

4th Place – Daniel Wohlmuth – Eldar

Everything you Need to Know To Start Collecting an Aeldari Army - Warhammer  Community

Hail of Doom has etched itself into my brain as nightmare fuel. With so many options to have a Fire and Fade option for popping over walls, shooting and then going back as well as Swooping Hawks redploying after shooting with a mass amount of Shuriken Cannons these lists are incredibly powerful. Making their rounds around the tournament sphere, this is definitely something you should be prepping for when making your future lists.

TJ comes back and this time is running Thousand Sons getting into 3rd place for a very respectable finish. Cult of Duplicity giving options for the Terminators to move across the board and with a list that isn’t souping with any other Chaos faction giving us a pretty traditional Thousand Sons list piloted by a great player. Armor of Contempt and All is Dust coming in big for these dusty bois.

2nd Place – Anthony Vanella – Tyranids

42+] Warhammer 40k Tyranid Wallpaper on WallpaperSafari

Good ‘ol Leviathan Tyranids coming back for a 2nd place finish. This list runs 2 biovores as well which is a personal favorite unit of mine with the new book and opting to drop the Harpies in place for more Raveners and Carnifexes. Shardgullet has also been dropped on the walking Hive Tyrant in place for Maw Claws of Thyrax now that they can’t be equipped with 2 Heavy Venom Cannons with one being a relic (which was a sorely needed nerf).

The T’au wavered but are back and still wreaking havoc at the top tables. Going with T’au Sept for the free re-roll for your shooting and the option for +1 to wound still makes the army extremely killy and one of the best Alpha Strike armies in the game.
