What Is The Middle Sixty?
Guest column by Jason Byrd
Hello, this is Jason from Military Gamer Supply and a member of the Warhammer 40K crew, Team Sex Panther. I’m going to do a series of articles designed for the average competitive Warhammer 40k player, also known as the middle sixty.
Sixty in this instance is a percentage. Not the top 20 percent or the back 20 percent. If you are going 2-1 or 1-2 in your average Rogue Trader Tournament (RTT,) this is you. If you win nine out of ten games against tough opponents, you probably won’t learn anything from this series.
The middle 60 is where I am. It’s where most of us are. There are enough writers that are top tier players. It’s a big gap from 79 percent to 10 percent and it’s not always easy to see how to cross it. This series will attempt to break that gap down into manageable steps. We’ll explore some of the things I’ve done poorly and things I’ve seen others do. I may not be able to get you out of the middle 60, but hopefully I can get you closer to the front.
Comment below and let me know what you think I should cover or anything you’ve learned as a player that others could benefit from. Thanks for reading.
Jason recently took part in the Las Vegas Open, the premier competitive event for Warhammer 40K earning a place within the top 25% of competitors from around the world. Additionally, he received a trophy as Top General for Renegade Knights. This article is the first in a series designed to help those who want to help themselves improve within the competitive gaming scene.
