Nova Open Best Region, Club, and Sportsmanship

Last week we took a stab at parsing through some of the data from the NOVA Open tournament to find the Best Armies. Facing the Grey Tide did a more in depth analysis with some great insights in their NOVA Recap Part 2. So now that you have some information on the best armies of the tournament I wanted to dive into some of the Nova Open’s more interesting details. I’ll be looking at the best region, best club, and finally, my favorite, the average sportsmanship score by army.


Best Region:

Region Average Points Players from Region
Illinois 124.6666667 3
Pennsylvania 118 6
New Jersey 110 11
Virginia 109.6875 32
Delaware 102 4
Massachusetts 102 5
Maryland 101.8333333 6
Connecticut 85.6 5
North Carolina 81 4
New Hampshire 61 3

I pulled out all the regions that had less than three players and this is what we get. Illinois and Pennsylvania are rocking out at the top with a decent showing of players from each region doing quite well. I have a suspicion those players are veterans of tournaments in Chicago and Philadelphia which are both hot beds of competitive 40k. Another data point that stands out is the 32 players from Virginia. Obviously NOVA is in DC and so should draw quite a few players from the Mid-Atlantic area but none of the other local regions had quite as strong a showing. I’ll have to be keeping a look out for more local tournaments in Virginia if the community is that strong.

Nova Open Best Armies – 2016

The Nova Open Results are in! Remember that Nova splits players into brackets so there are two values to consider, position and score. Position (out of 145) is determined by a player’s performance in their bracket while score is the raw score of the player regardless of bracket. You can also find the most played armies at Nova. I’ve gathered all the data and here are the Nova Open best armies by position:

Army Average Position
Imperial Knights 52.83333333
Chaos Daemons 57.13333333
Chaos Space Marines 57.14285714
