wow, actually I think it could do with a bit of fixing :P

I'd drop the static FW squads for Mobs of 20 Kroot

drop grenades on the Devilfish teams and swap the BS for an Ion head would be a good idea.

what armies are your main opponents? and what type of armies do they play?

I kinda thought the same thing, I just make random lists every week so I wasnt sure why they complained about this one.

I usually end up playing against Khorne(very few marines, alot of deamons), Iyanden(no idea what the idea behind this is, I think he just likes walking around with 20 wraithguard, and complaining about their short range..), Normal Marines(a few very expensive squads and a horribly overpriced HQ), Dark Angels(havent played in a while, I just remember getting smacked around), Blood Angels(only has enough to play 500pts. so we just grab random infantry and play), Imperial Guard(Armored Company), and occasionaly Dark Eldar(listens too much to the Iyanden guy who dosnt know what hes talking about so she hasnt even won a game in as long as I can remember).

yea, for those opponents I'd go with my orional suggestions, kroot should mob the low no's of uber marines and Ion is oh so savage vs berserkers and wraithguard..mmm...expensive models .

you have enough seekers so that you wont need the BS vs anything but the AC and even then I'd simply change it to a railhead as the sub > Guardsman ;D

I have in the past, the problem with settleing on a list against these people is that it turns into lets all build lists specifically to defeat that Tau players army...

I'm in the process of getting another group of people together, I'm just questing to find another person who thinks this army is overly cheesy..

It's a TROOP heavy army, and its the way tau should be played. I can't believe anyone would find that list cheesed, let alone one person!!!!!
Give your friend a reading of the codex in the areas where tau are deployed by manta, use mobility, etc. Seek and ye shall find....
