Is it jus me or is Ork vs Tau even worse than b4? It seems now all ork has 2 do is overwatch and attack move sluggas an stormboys. Watched sum replays and seems every tau is strugglin vs any ork player with half a mind. Tried kroot opening, tried fw opening any advice on wat 2 do?

Thanx

Wow.....Epic thread prunage all the way back to the OP. That has to be a new personal best.

On a more serious note:

Zlod: don't post in this thread again, as you clearly have nothing constructive to add.

IMo Orks are still > Tau, its better than in DC , but playing vs ork, you need to go for eco , thats the only way to beat him , its still very hard MU for Tau.

I recently had a game where the ork used his first 2 gretchin squads to mine as many sp's near my base as possible. Since a vespid opener vs. orks is retarded, i had 0 detection and lost quite a few stealthsuits and map control completely.

IF, and i say this IFFF you can hold ur base and a decent amout of res points against orks long enough u may fast tech out of it. Use about 4 squds of non-reinforced tau + tc, reinfoce if u reallllly have to, but stay near ur upgraded LPs and defend. long range is great for defence. U may be able to hold off for a while by dancing around if he flies stormboyz in. But fast tech ur ass to crysis n skyras with bombard, u shud be able to get hammerheads then as u start to push him back, n game over. If he has heavily invested in infantry and teched a bit slower, ur hammerhead shud be able to destroy his stuff be4 u got any troubles....

although i doubt against orks any tau can last longer than about 5 mins...

I actually had a great game about six months ago with a decent ork player on doom spiral, he made it to mega nobz but skipped flashes (big mistake) I went kauyon and had five FW maxed, we ended up at each others bases, and rather than either turning back we both focused on destroying each others base. I had an engineer and SS and began to build in his base. I survived, he tried to put up a quick barracks but never made it. Moral of the story, If you cant defeat your opponent head to head, try something totally off the wall. May work, may not...
