I guess we’re back and doing this again. Take a look at who’s winning, losing and this week’s top championship list in 40K – brought to you by BCP.

After a very long hiatus due to the world wide pandemic, we’re back with Best Coast Pairings to showcase the top list of the week for 40k. While the Tournament Scene has taken a hit, there are events happening. So, while the data set might be smaller than before (for now), we still wanted to bring these results to you. And since we are basically starting over at a strange time AND we’ve got a new edition, we’re resetting our counts. We still think folks should take all the recommended safety precautions if you are playing at an events – but if you’re going to play, you might as well have an idea about the current meta of 40k.

With all that said, let’s get to the results.

Welcome 40K players. Today we have your weekly report of all things competitive 40k.  We have the top lists being played out there in the world, what faction are winning, and the list that won the biggest event this last week.  So put on your armchair general’s hat and let’s dive into the data, brought to us by Best Coast Pairings.

The Top List: This is the anonymized, abridged army list that won the largest event in the past week we have data for provided by Best Coast Pairings:

From BCP:

Imperium, Aeldar, or Chaos is basically a unifying key between multiple factions from several codexes. So in the imperium example it’s like IG allied with space marines or space marines with knights. For chaos it would be demons allied with chaos marines. Any army not using a “pure” single faction army would fall into the master categories.
