40K Tournament Rankings
How and why the Australasian Tournament Rankings are calculated
Warhammer tournaments are regularly held to allow players to come
together to enjoy their hobby. Tournaments in Australia are
normally judged not just on if you win and by how much, but also on
other criteria such as how well your army is painted, your degree of
sportsmanship and the composition of your army.
For some, part of the fun is either comparing your skills against
other players, or having bragging rights. Others may just like to
see their name on a list of the best players across Australia and New
Zealand. The Australasian Tournament Rankings (ATR) provide this,
showing how successful players have been.
The key thing to remember about these rankings is that this is a
seeding system and is not a measure of capability. It reflects how
successful players have been, not necessarily how good they are.
In 2009 there were 71 Warhammer 40K tournaments across Australia and
New Zealand that contributed to the Warhammer 40K Tournament Rankings.
There were an average of 34 players per event, with 1275 players in
total taking part in these 40K tournaments in 2009.
