A very successful tournament. Everyone had a lot of fun, and most of the issues were minor to say the least. In terms of the tournament set-up, victory points was an interesting way to score. I think it is a very one-dimensional system, but it can be very fun. 
A number of players did not like the bonus objectives, and I can see why that is true. It could totally throw off the balance of the victory points, based on killing particular units. There was a slight intention for that to be true, but I did not anticipate it totally. I will try to make more balanced scenarios in the future. 

Once again, people loved the parameter points! I think all tournaments hosted by me in the future will use the parameter points. 

PS. 2nd place, who also had the most victory points, was a shooting orks list. I have been poo-pooed so many times against the shooting orks list, and it did fantastically well! So ha!
