No, they're not.
That speaks more to the player's ability, not to the faction being in any way broken, given the amount of Eldar ship's i've blown apart with all of those.
You must really be facing off the worst of the worst.
I think the same about anyone who have to face people that constantly complain about them being "instant win". The fact people are too inept to adjust to a different style of fighting to deal with the Eldar is the source of the problem, not any imbalance in the Eldar.
The fact is that they're FAR from overpowered like most people seem to believe is the case. (Note, I'm not saying they're underpowered either.)
Could you please provide any reasoning how they are not overpowered?
-Their holofields protect from standard weaponry.
-They are too fast to be targeted by abilities that their holofields don't get.
-Their pulsars deal burst damage that is equivalent to totally accurate and longer ranged ork mega cannon.
-Their favours give them +20 Troop value, negating LS weakness, or instant-through shields GUARANTEED LS (Orks were bashed for having a Shokk attack gun that mostly fails to succeed) or bonus FIFTY PERCENT stealth damage. Can apply to said pulsars.
-Carriers? Darkstar ability negates them all.
There is no adjusting to their "style" even if one has to tailor their entire fleet to fight them, since any cooldown ability that twarts their attacks has 3-6 times the cooldown of their lances.
Shield overcharge may protect against lances, but only once for every 4 passes.
Scaring them off with a bomb (not damaging them, mind) can only happen for every 6 passes, IF the eldar player goes full retard and bunches the ship together.
And even if it worked, such a fleet would be vulnerable to the other 2 race. Where do I get my renown to always specify my fleet against the enemy I clairvoyantly know I'll be fighting?
Taunt? All eldar has to do is set facing to broadside, countered.
Ramming? Something that fast? Perhaps if eldar player goes AFK.
There are 4 things an eldar player needs to do for instant victory:
-Avoid slow AOEs, rams and such. Burst out of it.
-Set facing to broadside.
There all done.
