it's probably just because Eldar have a large amount of firepower and mobility which can be used in unison with each other to either tactically out-flex, flank or overun the tau fireing lines...

It's hard to say exactly but Eldar arent it, the troops drop to pulse fire and the tanks (which give them their mobility) come down relatively easy.

the worst IMO is 'Crons a 3+ and a get back up? that just messes with Tau. and the fact that wraiths turboboost to get an invunerable is disconcerting.

'Nids, not even close, a proper 'Nid army (lots of gaunts) is almost easy, they drop in record time to pulse fire, as long as the crisis and HH suceed in neutralising the big bugs its just not hard.

In my opinon the greatest problem is Chaos army, for example slaneshi lord with siren is doom to entire TAU army, and there are also other problems like blood leters and other daemons.

I find chaos to be no harder than normal marines, so they have daemons and some other tricks, I'll take darmons over Whirlwinds and vindicators w/ assault marines comnig from all sides :P

think of Necrons as Marines with even more tricks, and they get back up. It's normal to hear shouts of "why wont you stay dead!" coming from games stores ;D

I only said Nids because it just seems they would beat Tau... They're a good assaulting army. But I don't have any expirience with playing against Nids with my Tau.

Necrons are beasts. I started off with me playing Crons and my brother playing Tau. After many solid victories I tried out Tau against Crons and I got pretty annoyed. Although the Tau list was terrible too.

Necrons - no problem, Marines- kill 'em all, Eldar- easy prey especially biel-tan, Nids- tough opponant but hardly unkillable, Sisters- send 'em back to thier easy-bake ovens. I only have 1 problem army- Blood Angels jump pack army. Used correctly they negate alot of the tau fun tactics- like fish of fury and such- cause they just jump passed the tank. They are hardly impossible, just a very difficult army cause it is a continuous cat and mouse game. In fact this is my next opponant in a 2000 point game. Fear not, I'll still send em packing.
