In the first update since November and the finishing of the first group stage, Steve has sent round an update of the second group stage.
With my group having finished their games a while ago we had been eager to get an update (Paul and I were both convinced that we had placed last, not sure if i’m happy to have been correct in that conversation 😉 but at least I can concentrate on the Kings of War comp now). In terms of the final positions in Group A, I had predicted Dan or Neil to win so no surprises there and they are both strong contenders to reach the finals.
It turns out the delay was mainly due to most of the other groups not having played a huge amount of games so there having been little to report on.
With only 2 weeks left to play the games it is likely that many will be outstanding, especially with the 40k tournament starting.
At least one person (Stevie B – Ogres) has withdrawn and I suspect a number of other entrants have probably also withdrawn.
As a reminder, the top 3 finishers in groups A and B will be joined by the winners of groups C and D in the final playoffs. I have added in the confirmed results to the below (I’ve made the assumption that Luke will win Group D.
QF1: Group A 1st (Dan W) v Group D 1st (Luke B)
QF2: Group B 1st v Group C 1st
QF3: Group A 2nd (Neil R) v Group B 3rd
QF4: Group B 2nd v Group A 3rd (Paul B)
SF1: Winner QF1 v Winner QF4
SF2: Winner QF2 v Winner QF3
FINAL: Winner SF1 v Winner SF2
