These are approximate, so give or take maybe a couple either way.
Should be fairly accurate though.

W/L/D

Eldar 2nd Edition maybe 8 battles. 4/3/1

Space Marines 3rd Edition 4 battles. 2/1/1

Space Marines 4th Edition 8 Battles. 4/3/1
Daemonhunters 1 battle 0/0/1
Tau 4 Battles 3/0/1
Eldar 1 battle 1/0/0
Witchhunters 1 battle 0/0/1
Imperial Guard 1 Battle 1/0/0

Grand Total
15/7/6 28 games total.

I have never collected stats but I'll try to give a flavour.

My first armies were Dark Angels, Eldar and Speed Freeks. I maxed all these armies out to be competitive and won many more than I lost.

I then changed a bit as a gamer and only really play fluffy or quirky armies. For example an SM boarding party with only melta weapons as heavy/assault and only dreds for support. A daemon heavy wordbearers (no daemonettes) Tau with fifty fire warriors and no vehicles and 120 model walking ork army. Some of these are accidentally effective and some (Tau) are awful so I probably break even. I find I enjoy the challenge more. Speed freeks especially became almost impossible to lose with.

Jeez, I have no idea. I've played since 1989. I can say I've won more than I lost overall. I imagine I've learned a trick or two in nearly 18 years of playing 40K. Damn, I feel old now.

won-Too few to remember (stupid cheese armies, I must be the only person who fields a fare balanced army in my store)

I dunno man. When the games played gets up there in the hundreds, how on earth can you keep track of that?

How many games are you thugging your kid brother? How many are really legit? How can anyone tell? How do you judge whether a game IS legit? Does it have to be played at a convention or Battle Bunker? Does playing your kid brother at the dinner table count?

Elchimpster has the right of it there,
I have been playing since Rogue Trader was the rule book and used to work in a shop selling GW products during 2nd Edition.
Played more than 20 games a week back then for about two and a half years, I could not tell you how many games I have played let alone the W/L/D.
So..... not enough/many/too many :lol:

I fail to see the point in a thread like this. As has been stated, there is no way for anyone to prove/disprove the ratios someone gives so anything posted here will usually just be pointless. That being said, here is my w/l/d ratio

Chaos - 570/5/3
Tau - 251/76/4
LatD - 100/0/2


See my point?

Must be a headache to remember ratios and such
9/12/0 here but like 3 of the wins were from totally beating on my friends when it they were new, and same with most of my losses when i was new(er)
So yeah i agree on the point how much does w/l/d ratio really show?

I've also been playing for just over a decade, and we'd hit that 10-20 games a week mark. Back then, I was pretty unstoppable. I remember winning my FLGS gaming club by more than 30 wins than anyone else, and thousands upon thousands more victory points. My saving grace was that in every game I was losing badly, I'd steal away with the objectives. I couldn't even try to count the wins, but I remember every loss and tie. Its probably like this..

2e Ultramarines 30/1/0
2e Eldar 20/0/0
3e Ultramarines 90/1/1
3e Eldar 50/1/0
3e Armored Company 12/0/0
3e RT Armored Company 6/0/1
3e Tyranids 5/0/0
3e RT Space Wolves 6/1/1
3e RT Eldar 14/1/0
3e RT Word Bearers 25/0/0
4e RT Eldar 2/0/0
4e RT Armored Company 4/0/0

I've only lost 5 times, and christ they were wipeout brutal losses. Every other game I came near losing, I managed to grab objectives, hit high-cost units, or pick off their scoring units.
I had 2 terrible games, one with my Word Bearers and another with my Space Wolves, both in RTs. I had a single squad left with both and pulled off a narrow victory in one and a tie in the Wolves game. God bless Blood Claws charging.
Those stats aren't totally accurate, cause there are probably alot more home games I've won and a few more home losses that I can't remember due to time and quantity of shopgames.

Actually, I'm guessing all but maybe one or two people here have,m but the people who care are having shenanigans with their scores, and the people who don't don't post.

It's human nature, when comparing this sort of stuff, to justify to yourself that 'oh, all those losses didn't count, because they were against crap armies, and those ones don't count because I was a new player', and to similarly overestimate upon overestimations the amount of battles you've won. Everybody who thinks that these statistics are important does this, and that's the main reason I think they aren't. They're just not based in reality.

There are exceptions to the rules, but I generally agree with Uber. I, personally, am a sucker for stats. That said, I've kept very careful track of all of my games, of which there have been many. What would be the point in me posting the stats though? I doubt any would believe me, and even if they did, so what? The off chance that someone might believe me, care enough about my record to be impressed by it enough to stroke my already massive ego is not worth dealing with the far more likely and expected flood of people who couldn't care less or who would believe I am full of crap. More importantly, if someone is going to praise me for something, I'd rather it be for writing an article or helping those who need it, since those things are worthy of more praise than me trouncing a bunch of people just because they didn't think orks knew how to aim a big shoota.
