No, You're not getting a new codex. Yes, GW hates you. Yes, the Tyranids are going to eat you. No, the Imperium did not lose to you, they got bored and left.

After the first few look, I stopped watching that specific thread a long time ago...just way too much stuff that is completely over the board/unrealistic.

I think you meant to say:

"No, you're not marines so you won't get a new codex. Yes, all your friends at GW are gone - look at the subpar writing treatment you get (shadowsun vs nids....seriously.) Yes, the Tyranids will eat everyone. No, the Imperium did not get bored and leave, they could not fight the Tau to a victory and had to cut their losses.

:

This is why you get Tau fanbois, because they get fed up with the anti-Tau crap coming from every other player. Add to that the lack of decent writing staff, and you have to put up with crap like shadowsun wiping out a splinter fleet with no loss, naturally leading to the anti-tau camp claiming "Well, a splinter fleet could only be two ships huuur huur" which then gives the Tau camp to reply "Nuuur, it was like 1337 ships and we pwn"

Lesson one - don't piss around and discredite Tau fluff, and you won't see Tau players upping it to retard levels.

Lesson two - the current codex is blatantly needing an upgrade, but only along the lines of ALL 4E dexes. 5th changed a lot, and Tau as well as others need to be brought into line.

Zen - if it annoys you so much seeing whatever it is thats upset you, I suggest you try and see things from the Tau point of view. There is a lot we need changed - but not at the expense of other needy armies.

I have no argument with that but still......the ideas they churned out *Spasm* I don't mind new allies. I don't mind new Fast Attack units like Tetras and maybe a Hover bike for them. I don't mind their vehicles being cheaper. I don't mine the XV-8 Crisis Suits.

What I don't mind is totally unbalanced weaponry like Burst Cannon being Rending, Pulse Carbine being Assault 2, Markerlights being Assault Weapons, Suicide/CC-Drones.

Some of them, I ain't gonna deny, they are flat out terrible.

The pulse carbine though, is a very good idea. Making the rifle heavy 2 and the carbine assault 2 means you will see a very unique difference between mobile vs immobile units, and it will be a lot more fluffy.

Not to mention, its barely a firepower increase. I doubt the carbine would even retain pinning, as it wouldn't need both.

Its hardly anymore overpowered or less fluffy than giving guard platoons access to Leman Russ' outside the FO chart.

Zen, we have autoguns. They use the same stats as lasguns though (so says IA: 5 and 6.

They need a revamp.......especially when I can pin down enemies in Dark Heresy with a Full-Auto Burst Autogun Fire.
