40K Tournament Rankings for 2008

Australasian Warhammer 40000 Tournament Rankings (2008)

In 2008 there were 58 Warhammer 40K tournaments across Australia and New Zealand that contributed to the Warhammer 40K Tournament Rankings.  There were an average of 31 players per event, with 1047 players in total taking part in these 40K tournaments in 2008.

The downturn in the number of events being held and the number of players taking part compared to 2007 is probably a result of the fact the Games Workshop stopped running their GT and Conflict tournaments in Australia and New Zealand.

The largest 40K events in 2008 were:
