2K games, win losses are compared against the average for that army (builds in an alternate approach to composition scoring for their core tournament rules set!)
Favorite opponent votes are part of the core overall system.
I think it's good but interesting.

I like it, although the 2000 pts. surprises me a little, I think I'm just so used to 2250 now. I hope that they run it in Canada. It's been a couple years since GW has done really anything larger than a store tourney up here.

I wouldn't hold your breath - -I'm hearing north american GT's are being cut back outside of Vegas.

Ugh, bad news. On the bright side, I don't think they can cut any more here mathematically. That said, I might consider going down to Seattle this year, so that could be foiled.

I'm actually surprised even with the low population density there aren't more Canadian indy GT's seems like there is a solid WFB playing population given the internet presence :)

Not to drag it out too far, but for some reason GW decided to pass it off to independents a few years ago. Many of them do a great job, and my impression is that probably we have more people involved as a percentage of population (totally unfounded allegation though). I think that part of the reason is the way that our population is distributed, and the other part is that even though they pawned off some of the responsibility for organizing, it's mostly plodded along well enough. On the downside, they sacrifice some of the control that they have in that they could tell us that 3000 is the new standard, but the catch is whether our tourney organizers go along with it.
