Any chance you could give us a feel of how big this meta is? (i.e. local, state-wide, multi-state, international)
It's interesting see a relatively large team tournament (I count 17 teams, 91 people, but I guess that's including alts) less than a month after the WTC have such a wildly different meta from the latter. After a quick glance at Cryx (because it's my faction), there's only 1 person playing Slayer spam and between that and 1 Denny 2 list, it accounts for most of the Slayers present in the entire tournament. Conversely, everyone and their dog (bar 1 person) is playing Skarre 1 Dark Host.
I wonder if this is a reflection of the North American meta or the global meta evolving, or if there are simply more "casual" players that don't really care about what "the meta" thinks.
