Default Help My Tau Enemies...

Before I start this post, I have to say in no way am I saying I am the greatest Tau General (Shas'O?). I would also like to say I am not a master of anything to do with this game, I just tactically approach things presented.

Anyway, onto the topic. I started up my Tau a little bit ago in anticipation of the new Codex. After I've done so I haven't lost a game, in fact I've only lost 5 Firewarriors in 5 games..

Has anyone else reached this pinnacle of domination? I've entered somewhere that I don't want to be. I want my friends to have fun, I don't want to cream them. But, out of respect I don't want to throw the game. Is there anything I can do to give them some kind of advantage without making them feel developmentally challenged?

Well, thanks to all that read, and understand what I am trying to explain. Thanks for replies and ideas that anyone can spare.

<3 the Greater Good

My advice would be to make an army that is limited like O'shovah's rules. It looks like a fun challenge.

What kind of army do you use,what armies does your opponents use? these are very critical questions.

i had this "problem" to,the way i dealt with it was when my opponent made a good move i "accidentally" did something to teach him that the move he made was good (id move up a crisis suit and let it get torn up) stuff like that.

Dont handicap yourself for their sake. It will lead to much better games in the future. While they die, they should be learning. When they learn how to exploit the Tau Empire's many weaknesses, they will probably do a lot better, since it sounds like you are indeed a very good player (and very modest.) In other words, if it doesent kill them, it will make them stronger.

Direct them to this sight it should work quite well.

along with the above just get someone who is very succesful at the game and have them use your friends army. then you try to make some mistakes but not too many,and then you show them that their army is quite good when used right :.

the only way you could have lossed so little is if your freinds dont move or you have been treated with the dice gods or you have got a rule wrong and are horribly abusing it or you just another flipper. yes this game tatically minded but it still heavy chance based meaning it is impossible to not loss any thing.

1) if you've got a rule wrong i dont know i need to see battle report to know
2) if your freinds cant play i need to see battle report again
3) if your the dice gods favoured one dont worry there fickle and get board easly
4) your a flipper. flippers are produce because people hate dice going every where. this means they dont role they flip. there are two types of flipers, 180 and 360. you not a 180er because you dont lose majourly. if your a 360 i cant say. solution roll with a cup into a box it band to role on table at by club because other wise your cant get good rolling or the dice end up ever where.

i'm sorry even a good player loses more than 5 fire warriors in a ture match.

Well I played games like that before. I played a 2000 point game where I raped marines and lost 1 rail gun. It's was due to the fact he was foot slogging and overestimated his equipment. Like the Land Raider for example. Marine players tend to think this one tank can win them the game and build a whole strategy around it. What's sad when you destroy it with relative ease the army crumbles. Also the fact he has less than 50 models in his army don't help.

we always do 1000-1500 just because weve got 4 hours at most to play our games and we always have some distraction.
