I will ask again; better at what?

Stealth Suits are cheaper, and are good vs hoardes.

Crisis Suits are tougher, and can be equipped to deal with heavy armoured infantry or vehicles.

Typo on your part WG - Stealth Suits are cheaper, and are good vs hoardes.

Each suit has it's own niche - your question is nearly impossible to answer since each excells at different tasks. Crisis suits are tougher but lack the Stealth protection, Stealths have less weaponry but are half the cost etc.

And asking you for correct spelling isn't "spam", it's forum rules.

According to your account, you're from an English-speaking country. Considering I was 90% perfect with regards to linguistical composition at 12, you have no excuse.

I don't know how much I can expound on what wargamer said, but I'll give it a shot.

A successful list will probably have some of these units, as they both provide things the Tau list needs, and can't get anywhere else.

Stealth provides a mobile unit that can harrass many types of enemy through volume of fire.

Crisis are less mobile, as they must stay near terrain to avoid getting sniped by missile/lascannons/etc, but they provide the only real mid-strength, low-ap weaponry the Tau can take in any number.

If I had to take just one, I'd take the crisis suits, because I'm dumb sometimes and take what I like more. *The stealth suits are probably a better choice, however, as their stealth ability, combined with infiltration, makes them a much more useful unit tactically. *I'd just max out or railgun-toting hammerheads to cover my lack of mid-strength weapons.

That's really wonderful. Considering he may be dyslexic, a non-native English speaker residing in the US, or have a host of other unknown problems, he could very well have an excuse.

That said...Mattz, take the extra 10 seconds and spell correctly for everyone's benefit.

Mental difficulties are not an excuse... mainly because I have them myself.

Most people would take Stealths just because they're cheaper and, in most cases, take Crisis Suits for HQ choices.
