IA vol 3 states that "Tau eyesight is good, but they focus on distant objects slower than humans."

>B. T’au society is divided into population segments that are called "castes", but rather than the hierarchical, racialized class system this might imply, these "castes" are more like distinct cultures whose societal roles are different but hierarchical status isn't (except for the Ethereals, the rulers). Like many things about the T'au lore, it's likely the term "caste" is used as an orientalist signifier to emphasize their East-Asian theme and aesthetic.
The castes are not hierarchical, but they are racial. The castes were formed from tau sub-species that were eugenically engineered to perform roles their biology made them suited for more adeptly. There is also a rank system based on merit, and technically the position of Ethereal supreme is determined democratically by the Ethereal council. A Tau might argue that an Aun'la is equal to a Fio'la because determining what should be worked on and performing the work are both needed for the greater good.

>C. Ethereals using mind control is hinted at, but ambiguous (and worth noting that the lore is written from an Imperial point of view). You're free to accept this as your preferred interpretation but it falls into the same category as "Tyranids are fleeing a greater threat" or "Alpha Legion is still secretely loyalist".
No, mind control is pretty much set in stone, what is ambiguous is to what extent it is used.

>In conclusion, there are many arguments for why T'au are the "least bad" faction in 40k so it's no coincidence they're coded left-wing (though Games Workshop has responded to fan backlash about them "not being grimdark" and made them less sympathetic). You're free to like them or not, just worth correcting a few things people say about them.

They didn't really say anything to out of line, but I don't really know why they appropriate tau iconography and terminology when they seem to understand that tau don't follow their world view.

>crisis suits dumbed down so far you wouldn't even recognize them as the most iconic faction defining unit
Enclaves have the thought and design the core tau 'dex should have had and their role in lore is way overblown.

Please stop pretending all T'au player are scum.

We've been trying to overcome our negative reputation since 3rd edition and we're almost there.

>Unlike Tau
Tau consistently lost to DG, having their empire carved into during the current campaign. Their campaign into human lands has been reversing the tides in current campaign with IG carving back their land slowly after Tau's supreme leader was assassinated.
Deldar, Eldar, and Necrons have destroyed small chunks of Tau in their own spheres of influence.

The only victories Tau had was over SMs, Orks, Nids, and initially IG. While nids were easily disposed of, the GSC infestations have been slowly spreading on a consistent basis.

The Greater Good will see us through. The vaunted Imperium could not conquer the Tau Empire, and the Empire even out-adapted the Tyranids.
The future is in the hands of the Ethereals.

Providied excellent customer service and shown passion for the game.

Seriously, I get hating the higher ups, but it's not the managers who raise prices or make a retarded codex. They just run their store and are happy doing it. I've not once had a bad experience with staff in any GW stores.
