The usual troll reply.

Disruptor bombs can be dodged and they got a very long recharge time. Not really an effective thing.


then you really suck with the disruption bomb, sorry

also, you know you can target generators right? no shield recharge then


You know little buddy from under the bridge, that just because they are targeted does not really matter since RNG screws it up?


still helps slightly doesn't it? or is that option to target it worthless and do nothing?

It does not do much in my experience. Works roughly one out of 3 crits.

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

My thought was why don't they make the prow deflector not need an upgrade for sheilds, but then link it to movement speed like holofields?

Functionally similar to disruption pods increasing your junk save from 40k TT.

Mechanically a port from eldar.

Functionally make the tau player choose between closing tank or stationary dps...

I'm seeing a lot of ways to flank the Tau at the moment, with or without abilities. Tau ship speed even with AAF on is pretty slow comparably. I haven't tested a build using speed upgrades for the Tau yet, but I'd guess they are slower than other faction equivalents.

Even Orks can flank them pretty easily though maintaining the flank requires more strategy. If you can get around to ramming position they are pretty vulnerable.

But not by enough for it to be effective in the situation you described.

its better than nothing which you believe you have :L just whine and bitch nonstop about tau being op simply because you can't outsmart them, but if you beat them, its because the tau users are stupid and can't play the game, double standards stamped all over you

The usual troll "learn to play" stuff. You are running out of ammunition? I'm sure there is some under the bridge you post from.
