Multitracker is useless when you have markerlights, period. And Plasma is fairly weak for crisis suit weapons when considering the alternative options. Lose 6" and have an assault 3 gun or keep the RF1 gun that you can't advance with as effectively? Get three guns for your crisis unless you can't physically field 3 weapons on them in which case go with ATS.
Effectively going 4 sets of crisis suits is really not an effective way to spend your points in a tournament setting. Paying a lots of premium for 3W T5 3+ with fly that only has a BS4+.

Ghostkeels are meh for the points, you better hope you sell the distraction carnifex to your opponents or you won't get your points worth out of it.

Greatly dislike having only a single commander in the list. If you're going competitive you need to have a bunch of commanders. Like at least 3 or 4 in a 2k list. Unfortunately that's what we're saddled with a the moment for Tau.

Let's see what we can do! Let's throw out the Kroot, the Fireblade (you have no Fire Warriors nor many Gun Drones), change the loadouts on the XV8s/Ghostkeel/XV9s, drop a few Stealthsuits, and consolidate the Pathfinder teams. Here's what the list would look like:

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
Elites - 3x Stealthsuits w/ 3x Burst Cannons; Homing Beacon (110)
Elites - 3x Stealthsuits w/ 3x Burst Cannons; Homing Beacon (110)
Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 9x CIBs; 6x Gun Drones (336)
Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 9x Flamers; 6x Gun Drones (255)
Elites - Ghostkeel w/ Cyclic Ion Raker, 2x Burst Cannons, Target Lock, ATS; 2x Stealth Drones (179)
Elites - 2x XV9s w/ 4x DBBC, 2x ATS; 4x Gun Drones (234)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 8x Markerlights (64)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 3x Rail Rifles, 5x Markerlights (137)

There's 1601 points, still lots of room to grow! Let's add another Fusion Commander and a Commander with Missile Pods, as well as a few more Pathfinders.

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Commander w/ 3x Missile Pods, ATS (156)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 8x Markerlights (64)

Here's the complete list:

-

HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176)
HQ - Commander w/ 3x Missile Pods, ATS (156)
Elites - 3x Stealthsuits w/ 3x Burst Cannons; Homing Beacon (110)
Elites - 3x Stealthsuits w/ 3x Burst Cannons; Homing Beacon (110)
Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 9x CIBs; 6x Gun Drones (336)
Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 9x Flamers; 6x Gun Drones (255)
Elites - Ghostkeel w/ Cyclic Ion Raker, 2x Burst Cannons, Target Lock, ATS; 2x Stealth Drones (179)
Elites - 2x XV9s w/ 4x DBBC, 2x ATS; 4x Gun Drones (234)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 8x Markerlights (64)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 3x Rail Rifles, 5x Markerlights (137)
Fast Attack - 8x Pathfinders w/ 8x Markerlights (64)

Total: 1997 - Command Points: 6 (2 Vanguard Detachments, 1 Outrider Detachment)

I admit, I personally don't really like XV9s or Ghostkeels, but if you like using those units then stick with them. Anyway, what do you think?
