We just finished up with the fall 09' tournament here in White Plains, NY and we had a surprising repeat! Jawaballs returned to take the top spot of OVERALL BADASS. Greg from Brothers Grimm took 2nd place Badass and our own Danny Internets took 3rd. Robert Roda took Best Sportsman and Ben Bangley wowed with his Eldar for Best Painted. Special mention has to go to Rob Baur for his great work on his awesome ork/guard army. I was back and forth all day on who was the winner! Jawaballs was also in the running until I caught him with some mold lines on a couple of guys.
It was the closest tournament that I have ever seen. We had a three way tie for third and a tie for first. I dont know what people will say, but the way we had to choose a tie breaker was the only way I see possible. The scoring of our tournament considered battle points and sportsmanship. These were the only two categories given a numerical value. Sportsman was used as a tie breaker for battle points, but as usual, sportmanship scores were all perfect. Go figure, I really hate sportsmanship scores, and with a tie in battle points and a tie in sporty points, how do you pick a winner. We choose to look at the toughness of opponents. Jawaballs won because his opponents had scored more battle points than Gregs. That is how we then decided who won third and who lost out. To be honest, I wish that our club members would have lost out in both situations because of the possible whispers saying there was homecourt advantage pressed here. I want to guarantee to everyone that is not the case!!!!!!! It just worked out that way! So what do you guys think. Given the situation should we have chosen a winner a different way?
***edit*** In the future we will keep track of either kill points or victory points in order not be put in this situation again!
