Ok, so i used to play Tau in DC, got to around 1450 then stopped playing due to other games comming out. Bought SS, messed around with all the races and eventually fell back on Tau.

Im still having alot of the problems i had against some races from DC like Orcs, and Necrons, however these problems are now compounded by the introduction of the SoB and the DE who also give me a headache. The nerfs to Vespid/TC dont make things easier either.

So what im asking is in these MU what would some of you more experienced Tau players do. Ill list the BO's i generally see and have the most trouble with below.

DE -- Mandrake/Hellion Harrass =>Bike Spam =>Tier 2 Archon (with his ridiculous 2 of your squads are gonna die no matter what you try to do abilities)

Orc -- Usually 2x Slugga Harrass =>BM/Shoota's => 2x Jump Orcs (forgot thier name)

SoB -- Anything with flames, Ive been realizing i simply cant make enough units to compete...Snares are destroyed immediatly by Flamer Squads with Missionaries, and FireWarriors die while they dance.

Necron -- Im sure i dont have to go into detail here but we'll say Wraith Spam just for kicks.


So please any Experienced players who can help meout with possible counter BO's or tactics, its greatly appreciated.

Orks i have a big problem, i find its hard to dance around em, especially with boss tele. and fruiting shoota boys, what the fruit is with orks having about the best t1 shooting unit??? no setup time, a fruitload of damage, and decent hp units. And as tau its not l ike u can get anywhere near his turret-bristling base. So yeah, orks... just quit.

SoBs not much xp against em, but yeah fw spam (dont re-inforce the squads unless ur swimming in cash) with tc is good enough.

necrons, they used to be bad, but they are just annoying robots now. Just fw spam as said above + tc, throw some snare traps, and their already slowness becomes agonisingly slow and u can easily shoot em to pieces. no need for vespids. then u just tech to skyras with bombard, and put some broadsides in to rip his base up (never do this myself, but i think will work)... or if u want, be safe and fast tech to crysis suits.

not sure bout de, but i think lots of fw + commander is ok. if thier bikey things are spammed, just keep fws away and upgrade ur cloaked scouts.

hope that helps.
