Who's going to LVO 2019?

Recommended Posts

Ahoy all! 

I'm wondering who, from here, is going to the AOS champs / Las Vegas Open this year?
I'll be taking my nurgly-boys to both the champs and the more relaxed doubles.

Good luck on the final prep week (yikes) and safe travels!

I only ever hear about the 40k portion of LVO. I'm curious, how is the turnout normally for AoS during LVO?

I've only gone to the first one. It was a great showing! This year is about 150? 
40k is bonkers. They get a lot of attention due to the size. The US 40k is massively popular. 

I had a phenomenal time my first year.

Yeah the presence of AoS scene in the US pales in comparison to the 40k scene. It's a shame really. Still, I guess you can't look a gift horse in the mouth. 150 people is still 150 people lol.

A bunch of my Calgary peeps are going (one of our guys was one of the Tzeentch top ten finishers last year).

Is it this weekend

Feb 8th, you can follow placing on the BCP app. 

About 160 players pre drops, I’d guess 120+ on the day (40k has around 750+ and all the streamed games will be of 40k).

Friday and Sat 5 games. About 5 players will be 5-0 and and then the other 3 on 4-1 with max secondaries will battle it out in single elimination 8 man playoffs on Sunday. Sunday will also have the doubles tournament.

Here is the player pack:

I'll be there! I really wanted to play my Nurgle daemon army, but logistics in transporting everything from Atlanta made me downsize to the lower model count Stormcast.

I'll be there with my Stormcast. Still hoping the AOS scene in the USA will catch on little more.

150 players isn’t anything to dismiss. That’s a big turnout. LVO is probly the biggest 40k tournament in the entire world, so it definitely gets the glitz and glam, but it’s still one of the largest AoS tournie too. AoS is still a newer game than 40k, and hasn’t had the same tournament infrastructure built up around it here, but don’t downplay it just cause the 40k side is bigger

Also they announced today on the podcast that they were able to get what they needed to stream the AOS tournament on FLGs Twitch channel.

Stream won't be high quality as the focus will still be 40k but its great they were able to stream AOS at all.

I took a look at the three lists, which one are you? They all look pretty strong for this event. Hopefully the dice favor you.

I'm the triple-engine/shadowstrike list. It's a fun list but I'm not hoping for much with the amount of hard death lists out there.

@Dervinus Hah, that was my favorite list. I think shadowstrike is out best option and 3 eotg can combine that with what Darren was trying to do in the UK masters. I think it could do fairly well against death if you focus fire the eotg with mortal wound output.

If I remember correctly your artifact choice was the only thing I was confused about. I think Darren had a good idea in his 3 eotg list trying to buff the mortal wound output with Shyish artifacts.

 

Anyway I'm really rooting for that list to prove people wrong about competitive dinos!

Lots of amazing armies!

I was blessed by nurgle and falling down sick for most the event, but still got my games in.

Hope everyone had a good time!

I had a great time and played some really fun games! I brought a somewhat-competitive list (darn it I like Decimators so I'm going to use them) and went 2/3, not too bad for my first tournament with more than 20 people in it (especially considering two of my opponents finished in the top 30...ouch). I don't think I really understood how competitive a list could be until I got shot clean off the board in my second game, but still had a really good time, and my Stardrake did a drive-by miricle roll on his bite to eat a Knight-Azyros clean out of the sky, so that was pretty cool.
