The Ultimate Warhammer 40,000 Metawatch Championship Guide

# Warhammer 40,000 Metawatch – The World Champions of Warhammer

Last weekend witnessed the clash of titans in Atlanta, Georgia, as the best Warhammer players from around the world gathered for the largest Warhammer tournaments in history. With over 40 nations in attendance, the World Championships of Warhammer became a battleground for strategic prowess and cunning tactics. The Warhammer Design Studio closely monitored the results, casting their gaze over the grim darkness of the far future.

In a recent Warhammer TV episode, Warhammer 40,000 Lead Stu joined forces with Nick to delve into the tournament results and their implications. Two prominent names, Mani Cheema and John Lennon, battled their way to the finals, where Chaos Space Marines clashed with Ultramarines in a tense championship match. Mani Cheema emerged victorious, wielding a Chaos Space Marines list that proved superior to John Lennon's Ultramarines.

**John's Tactical Missions Strategy**

John Lennon adopted a Tactical Missions strategy, drawing from the Chapter Approved deck to secure additional points. His army featured durable Deep Striking Inceptors and infiltrating Scouts, enabling him to achieve shifting Secondary Missions.

**Mani's Rhino-Driven Maneuverability**

In contrast, Mani Cheema favored reliable Fixed Secondary Missions. His Chaos Space Marines list, known for its Rhino-driven maneuverability, allowed him to consistently score Deploy Teleport Homers and Cleanse.

This discussion extends beyond the World Championships, delving into win rates across the competitive scene. Analyzing data from the last 60 days, the team scrutinized 200,000 games involving 36,000 players. At the pinnacle with a 57% win rate are the Craftworlders, maintaining their strength after targeted changes in the previous Balance Dataslate. The Drukhari cousins sit at 44%, a tad lower than the Studio desires but still formidable.

Stu and the Studio aim to fine-tune these factions in the upcoming points review and Balance Dataslate. Their focus then shifts to internal balance, aiming to broaden datasheet diversity in the competitive scene. While most factions boast balanced win rates, some have only one or two viable lists or playstyles. Anticipate changes that expand diversity as new Codexes bring fresh Detachments, supporting novel ways to play.

For a deeper dive into these insights, be sure to watch the full video. In the coming week, we'll also hear from the Warhammer Age of Sigmar team about their own World Championships conclusions.
