Year 1 Battle Statistics

I've kept track of games played from roughly August 2008 to August 2009 to track how much of a geek I am, haha. I may have missed two or three games but it's pretty close.

53 total games played. 28 different players involved (including myself).

36-5-12 (W-D-L) Overall record.
23-3-9 overall with Orks.
11-2-3 overall with Space Marines.
2-0-0 overall with other (Eldar and Tyranids).

7 games involved either teammates, were 3-way 1vs1vs1, or Apocalypse games.
6 out of 7 of these games I played as Orks and had an overall record of 3-0-4.

In 46 standard 1 on 1 games I am 33-5-8 against 23 different players.
20-3-6 with Orks.
11-2-2 with Space Marines.
2-0-0 with other.

Other Stats:
Most common point level was 2000, with 2500 being a distant 2nd, followed by 1500.
The most common armys faced:
1. Space Marines (not a surprise but Black Templars being the most common is sort of surprising).
2. Chaos Space Marines (a very close 2nd).
3. tied between Eldar and Orks. (sort of surprised at the number of Eldar).
5. tied Chaos Demons and Imperial Guard.
7. tied Witch Hunters and Tau.
9. with 2 or less apprearances: Necrons, Tyranids, and Dark Eldar. (only 1 game against the bugs... surprising.)

Chaos Space Marines were the most difficult army type to defeat, followed by Space Marines. Everything else was crushed for the most part haha. Notable defeats outside the Marine types include losing 2 games with my Space Marines: One against Ghazghkull fueled orks and the other my only game against Tyranids.

As for accomplishments I won a 2008 'Ard Boyz Qualifier, won a Club only Tournament, and won the Local League. This was due mostly to playing updated codexes for 5th edition, experience (having been playing since '93), and blind luck. I don't expect to do this well in the next year for a few reasons: 1) Planetstrike. This will add a new dimension to the game and really be something different. 2) New Armys. I plan step outside the comfort zone and field Necrons, Tyranids and Space Marines mostly and relegate the Orks to large scale battles... maybe, haha.
