Re: Local Tournament battle report - Tau still got it folks

I was only commenting on games 1-3 (the first day). The 4th list was strong and could hit top tier with a good player who understands their army well, but lists 1-3 are nothing I would expect to see winning a top tier round unless they just got paired with a net-lister or something they are a hard ...

Re: Commander keywords

Why doesn't the commander have the "xv8 crisis battlesuit" keyword? That doesn't let us embark them anywhere (specifically the orca). It doesn't make any sense. Because initial tau rule writing for both forgeworld and GW is about the sloppiest attempt at a codex I’ve seen in almost 25 yea...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Crisis suits and broadsides with BS3+ is something that I thing should really be in codex as they are elites/"snipers" and from fluff view they are piloted by elite warriors and have lots of electronics to help the pilot shoot, especially the static, stable broadsides with their precise r...

Re: Local Tournament battle report - Tau still got it folks

Does your local tournament rank off of W:L or off of victory points or a combination? If you are ranking off of W:L, then good luck and I hope to see on the top table If you are ranking off of VP, then you're going to be lucky to hit mid tier given the low VP wins you've gotten (especially if the t...

Re: Local Tournament battle report - Tau still got it folks

I liked how adepticon did it last year with keeping objectives relevant in every turn. You got to pick from 10 or so but you couldn't pick that one again and you had to complete it that turn. Made it less random but still had to go for some pretty crazy objectives at some point because you had to i...

Cool, thanks for the answer New stuff? i will love that appear more kroot units :D my knarloc and riders are so sad xD Honestly....I could not care less about getting "tau stuff that's not directly part of the tau empire." I want them to fix the units that we already have. This speculatio...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Also, for those of you thinking the markerlight stratagem is a step in the right direction, please repeat after me: A primary Tau mechanic should not need a stratagem to be viable Both things can be true, and are imo. Until we get a codex, the CA17 updates are a step in the right direction and we'l...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I don't think so. Playtesting for the next T'au Codex should be done. And most feedback would be taken from the playtesters and tournament players. Too bad they often have an other perspective on things like these than casual players. I think they might take into account regular player feedback if ...

Re: Local Tournament battle report - Tau still got it folks

Rough game four. My group is hot and cold on Maelstrom missions for that exact reason. Sometimes, the cards make for an incredibly fun back and forth game... and sometimes, they make the game completely lopsided and frustrating. Such are the fortunes of war, I guess. This is one reason I absolutely...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

One thing I've noticed when playing against a myriad of other armies is that we have waaaaaay less access to moderate strength, moderate rate of fire, AP-2/AP-3 weaponry. They are extremely prevalent in other armies which is compounded by the fact that most of them hit on a 3+ as well. If we want to...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So the Fire Prism may be a good example of what we can expect. Overall they are very similar platforms. Same Toughness, only a difference of 1 wound. Fire Prisms have slightly longer move, but the weapon is shorter range as well. It has a single fire weapon with high Strength, high AP, and d6 Damag...

Re: Burst cannon vs gun drones

I'll have to give it a try...although most of the people I play are on the ITC circuit, so they are WAAC. I may be thick but I have no idea what that means or why it makes a difference Serious tournament players on the points leaderboards, and WAAC stands for Win At All Costs...even above making/ma...
