The guy playing Tau is from Tabletop Tactics. I've watched both games he's played. He's very pessimistic about Tau on 8th and his summary is that the nerfbat has hit way too hard with no real justification to back this up. He's pointed out how markerlights look good on paper but getting to 5+ on the table is way too hard and how even getting there just evens out the field with other armies.
I'm really wondering what he'll try now, he said the last thing he wants to try before being convinced the Tau are close to unplayable is a crisis list.
On his first game he went with double Riptides and a Surgestorm and a very low model count against literally a million Tyranids.
On his second game he went with 4 devilfish, a stormsurge and some infantry against blitzkrieg Dark Eldar w/ air support.Spoiler!
Edit : He's going Stormsurge + full infantry
Edit 2 : aaah, and a massive crisis drop, k, he really did field a crisis list
Most important of all: is he telling GW people about those points?
