I have always assumed comp stood for competative, but i resently just discoverd is not that simple. Could anyone explane the Community comp system for me?

The term 'comp' is used in several different ways but in the context of your question I think it's referring to any system that seeks to alter or limit your army composition. For example, if a tournament decides that Eldar Windriders were limited to 1 heavy weapon per 3 models that would deemed to be a comp tournament.

Well in that case I'd refer you to their own "About" section: http://www.communitycomp.org/#about

Quote :
Community Comp is designed to provide a grading system for armies so that Tournament organisers can escape the toils of devising their own comp system and to remove the guessing game of playing in a comp tournament. With all the scoring out in the open, players build their own comp score so they are never surprised by a bad score and never end up bringing an army that is far softer than other armies at the event.

It's an Australian built system - I was fairly active as part of the committee for the last couple of years.

The sad part is, people locally got sick of being told they could not take things they had built and painted so more and more events are using ITC - including the ones I run.

It succeeded for a while but it's fallen behind with just a handful of people left trying to keep it going.

I've found it to be overly restrictive when I did some research into it in the past. With GW releasing new books and resources weekly/monthly, having highly restrictive rules has a tendency to get outdated and sound draconian very quickly. In my opinion, that is the biggest problem with highly restrictive comp systems like that one.

The ITC suffers from the same problem to a lesser degree, but they at least revisit rulings fairly regularly, and their people don't seem completely opposed to change(as other, smaller organizations seem to be) when new things have been released.
