i think orks and ig r the worse agaisnt tau cause orks cant win t1 agaisnt lp2s and tau's lp2s r the best ingame. tau can vesp rush and knock down the banners to detech an ork player (espicially a nooby one)\ ig really have no chance agaisnt tau... imp gaurds have no health no mele arent the fastest unit dont have good ranged bad moral snd weak heavy weaps till t2 (nade launchers? give me a break) and to top it all, krootox are igs worse nightmare
I'd say Necrons are excellent for taking out tau. Solar pulse just ahnihilates anyone who uses FW and kroot aren't all that strong. When the later tiers hit, the only problem they can encounter is the horribly op'd krootox. Space Marines and chaos are good to because there units are strong right off the mark, and both contain stealth units effective enought to quickly wipe out any pathfinders or vespids. There core units also have enough melee potential to fend of kroot.
Necrons and marines are good against anything thats why you can use them against tau :)
Slightly cooler than a n00b

Nade Launchers pwn tau for all the reasons i said earlier, but just incase you forgot, they have really long range, do 128+ dps (when upgraded) and knock down units, so yeah they pwn. Also, tau can't rush IG, unless the ig player just sucks. Your fire warriors will never get set and the ig player can just put a squad into melee mode while the other squads pwn you. Krootox do a lot of damage, but they take forever to kill a squad of IG as IG spawn fast. Also, becuase of the no rush thing the IG will have time to tech up so it will be a high tech battle. In which case the IG aren't weak in Morale, they are actually the strongest in the game, especially when they get priests. The pyskers can strip krootoxs' souls unless relic has fixed that in a patch. And baslisks have a longer range than any tau units, so the IG can just sit back and earth shader you to death while he slowly catches all your SPs making it immposible for you to reinforce at which point the ig guy wins. I see that necron has a lot of of votes which perplexes me. A good tau player will never let you get close enough to do any damage and will focus his fire on your flayed onese while they are still coming out of the ground. Tau can also spam krootox which necrons have a really hard time killing.
The reason i think that necrons own tau, is due to the special ability's of afew units, ie wraiths, phase shift may not be usefull against players becasue there smart enough to target other units, but it still allows any wraiths to get into position to melee any fire warrior squads, which really disrupts the overall firepower of the tau forces, and thats when you deploy the flayes one's to finish the job. As for dealing with the krootox, the simplest way is the most common way, they may be strong but they lack the ability to effectively deal with massed troops. hence the flayed one's or NW come into play. Or if you don't feel like that send in some scarabs they can get real annoying real fast.
Ruley;3468321guhhh, chaos are nooby now, with infiltration rules messed up there infil army is so gay! same with necron, infil monolith, COME ON! but if u wana use that agianst tau, go ahed.
LMFAO chaos are one of weakest races early tier 1 and tier 2 only when they get possesed oblits and infil plasma can they do damage so please dont back mouth chaos like you actually know what you are tlking about

True Chaos is fairly weak in tier 1, but so is Tau. Based on my skirmishes, the quickest defeats I've had as Tau have been against Chaos where my base is discovered early.
Next to that, I'd say SM is toughest as long as they get their infiltration detectors out early.
