Default MY entire concept of 40K shattered

so im reasonably new to 40k and hardly know the rules, but i thought i understood the basics, i playes a game or two against my friend and got a dirty shock the (A) attack stat is only ocncerning close combat, i was under the impression that 2 (A) attacks ment that you could use a weapon twice, for example i assumed that a stealth suit would shoot its assult 3 weapon 2 times resulting in 6 shots, when i hear that this concerns close combat i think "why the **** would i want 2 attacks with a ****ing stealthsuit, their ****ing useless in combat DX" helllp meeee

No help for it partner. Tau are a shooter army while most others love face to face so that is where the focus generally lays. We are still a dang good army though you just have to make sure to cut them up so that their WS and A stats never come into play. Wish could help but really thats all there is to it. Now if you wanna go CC you could always go for basic Tau troop requirements and then bulk out with a Kroot mob force. Especially with Vespid for assault squads. Never actually seen it done but have thought about it.

The only reason tau have WP and A is so they stand a chance in combat, the guys who make 40k arn't mean enough to give tau WP1 and A1 for every tau model (not kroot or vespids)

Their is a light at the end of the tunnel how ever. The Kroot are an excellent infantry choice. where most people consider them to be a throw away unit; I have found that if used properly(Skillfully) they are excellent in almost any situation.

The Kroot can beat the crap out of most enemy assault units provided you:

A. Took the shaper upgrade
B. Field at least fifteen of them, with four-six Kroot Hounds
C. Infiltrate/Outflank your foes

They are decent at shooting. Their field Craft is awesome, Infiltrating them into a forest terrain piece, and makinm them act as a turret is an awesome tactic. You get a 3+ save, and if enemy artillery is a problem you can always make them go to ground and get a 2+

Contrary to that, if you are hoping for your actual TAU troops to beat things in assault, you are out of your mind.

Oh, you are not out of your mind for equipping EMP grenades and assaulting vehicles with your fire warriors.

That we are not suppossed to let their armor live long enough for our firewarriors to worry about needing to assault it with grenades...that was all I was illuding to.
