Well, congratulations to all who advanced, and well played (and good luck next time!) to those who didn't.

Well, that's my list gone. I'm really not surprised, though. It's what happens when you enter a list that generally does better in 4e.
Alright on to the knock out rounds, I do have a question though how were the match ups decided on? It doesn't seem to be 1 vs 16 2 vs 15 and so on down the list. Were the match ups setup to avoid CSM fighting CSM? Is there a set bracket or will all future pairings be set based on who is left?
Just looking to understand how the knockout rounds are going to go and great job on keeping everything running smoothly Dan, you rock!
I think he did some random way, like names in a hat or something. But yeah i think it would have made more sence to reward the highest ranking lists and do 1 v 16, 2 v 15...
5/6 Chaos Marine lists
3/8 Marine lists
3/5 Ork lists
1/1 Cron list
1/4 Eldar list
1/2 DE list
1/3 Nid list
1/3 Guard list
0/0 DH lists
0/0 WH lists
0/2 Chaos Daemon lists
0/2 Tau lists

For the knock out rounds, I split the top 16 in two (top 8 and bottom then had the them play off against eachother. So the 'leader' or seed 1 will play seed 9 2vs10 3 vs11 and so on. Player one had already played against player 9 so I had to swap them around, no fun replaying a game eh!
kevin vanrooyen, Thanks for the break down, I was suprised that neither of the Tau or CD lists got through, they, on paper, looked nice but I think they faced some harsh opponants and didnt get things there way.
How has everyone felt this has gone so far?
Do you like this Swiss to Knock out style game? Would you have preffered something different?
I've enjoyed the votewar and thought the Swiss style worked well. Maybe it didn't really make a big difference but atleast I feel the lists at the top earned the place and didn't get in just because of playing so called weak lists.
I was suprised that atleast one of the CD didn't make it both were in the top half of the table before the last round. One of the tau lists had very small troops which I think hurt it alot can't say for the other off hand. Lastly Kudos to CSM 5/6 lists in the top half only codex with a better % is crons and they only had the one list.
Last question is how are the next set of matchups going to be desided?
I think we should all get used to the Ork vs CSM matches. I think we'll be seeing a lot more of them in the next two rounds.
Yeah the list I wrote up was really just a fun list (Patient Hunter) Got hit by a lot of high model count armies though >.< was a lot of fun voting and looking at the other lists too.
Change is good
