well I guess it all depends on your style of play and strategy. Tau are best used when you have some heavy units in front of your advance(hammerheads and/or krootox and GK) and your weaker infantry behind(preferably in devilfish apcs to keep up with the tanks) providing cover fire(FW still have the longest range of all infantry units in the game). Elites(XV-8 and stealth teams), as they can jump quickly around , should be kept in reserve and used only when is absolutely necessary.

The necrons however are best used when advancing slowly(the monolith moves very slow) and rely heavily on infantry(mainly because of their weak vehicles).

It's really weird, the bodyguards the Ethereal summons have such a long range it's not funny. On smaller maps you can just stick them in your base, and if something else sights for them, they can just keep firing at the other player's buildings and infantry.

But the necron destroyers are really powerful, except they're quite fragile, so they need the infantry to act as a meatshield while they absolutely pwn everything.

I think that the Tau will always be superior against anyone, but I think already figured that out:nodding: Anyway, Necrons will definatly win against the Tau, if confronted in a closed map. Tau forces won't be able to create effective tactics in close spot. However, in any other map or terrain, the Tau will always be victorious. A Necron player can easily destroy a Tau player on the beginning of the game, but generally, if the player isn't stupid and chose the right spots for a battle, the game is over very quickly!:cool:

if Tau get to tier4 there's no way the necrons will win over them because 2 Hammerheads and 3 Crisis suits will own any of the necron destroyers in an instant and if they come with the monolith just have a team of pathfinders mark the target and "all guns open up"

And you have seen that where? In the campaign on anything exept hard? Maybe, in the game? Not the slightest chance.

The tau way of dealing with the monolith is definately not hammerhead concentration, but stealth suit grenade spam.

The hammerheads have to be used somewhere else nad should keep some distance between them and lord destroyers.s

@manliner Krootox is far better in meelee including it's leap charge.

Well, in my opinion the monolith is one of the weakest relic units in the game. It's only true use is disrupting infantry because vs tanks it bearly scratches them. My way of dealing with the monolith is simple and effective: have a GK tie it up in meelee and use a team of pathfinders to mark it. Then order the 2 Hammerheads to open fire and it's bye bye monolith. With the monolith down the rest of the necron army will have no shield and you can now unleash the devastating firepower of the Greater Good! :)

All depends on what happens at the start. If Vespid and TC rush works Tau win. If Flayed spam on Tau base works Necrons win. That late on in the game it's pretty even and down to the players them selves. Tau are always at a dissadvantage as if they get tied up up CC units then you have to dance them about a lot and they are pretty expensive.
