All the hate because I play Tau.

Even GW designers recognize this. They had to develop the tau purely as a marketing move, but still shoehorned one of their original choices (the kroot) into them because they were simply too awesome to abandon in favor of a lazy weeaboo-pandering army.

Guess I'll have to keep making do with the fan one.

Even DoW was like "oh, let's go with the badass Kroot dinosaur as the super relic unit". Krootoxes were fucking insane in Soulstorm, too...

But yeah. A change in fluff with renegade tribes of Kroot would be awesome. If the Greater Good was ever realised, the Kroot would stagnate and die.

As much as I don't like Tau, why the FUCK is that a character-defining trait?

It's probably everyone else, because only faggots play MEQ

>> No.22970146

Can't it's the only closet store in western PA. The other ones are 3-4 hour drives, not including traffic. Not only that, but I heard most fans of 40k act like this to Tau players.

Depends, all I did was come in one day, brought a Tau Crisis suit along with paint, model snow, and a Callidus Assassin blister then some neckbeard noticed me with my stuff and soon word spread about me being a Tau player.

Next time I came there, I brought my army (Just a battleforce and the suit) and they started to shit on me for it. Luckily the Eldar/DE, and Daemon Hunter players invited me to a team match and we became friends.

I tend to just be quiet, only talking when spoken to.

Of course I sometimes buy stuff for my friends like FW stuff during Christmas (Or WAAAGGHMAS!!! as it's called in the store), b days, etc for them and they do the same for me.

Does this make me a faggot?

Western PA, near Pitt. It's around 30 minute drive from me place and other stores take 3+ hours to get to. The nearest GW store is in Philly.

>> No.22970157

that makes no sense, to the kroot, the tau are just another client, except they're an especially gullible and preachy one, that's why they pretend agreeing with them. Technically no Kroot genuinely belongs to the tau empire.

Thanks for the example.

>> No.22970172

do you go on about how Tau are the good guys?

basically the stigma around tau players comes from a few vocal ones who are absolute-mega-faggots, it'd be like having a Ultramarines player around who constantly spouts the spiritual liege lines.

do other players act like this about their armies?

if so, they are the faggots, if you do, you are the faggots.

but then again tabletop gaming is full of anti-social neckbeards, so often it'll just be dicks being dicks, and the 'normal/nice' players know who these people are and secretly hate them whilst not doing anything about it.

>> No.22970180

I mean personally I don't dislike the tau, I think the fluff needs more effort put into it by GW, but being a relatively new army it's fair to see why they might not have a lot of it.

I mean hell, I even got my brother into 40k and helped him start a tau army.

>> No.22970182

It's why I was saying a change in the fluff wouldn't be amiss.

And you say that, but the Tau have imposed some hefty restrictions on them. Key of which is that the Kroot are forbidden from ever eating a Tau.

The reason why they'd be renegades is because the Tau saved the Kroot homeworld from the Orks.

>> No.22970184

The only good fluff-fag is an Ork fluff-fag. All the Marine players I know always cry about the ridiculous things their Mary-Sues have done.

No, I actually try to make them out of sort of neutral. Some Septs and Ethereal do sterilize populations until they come to the Greater Good, while sometimes some Septs give away advanced tech for free like candy.

The other players on the other hand constantly go on about how powerful and strong their army is or do circlejerks about each other's armies.

Though usually in Apoc, it's:

Space Marine Chapters, IG, Chaos/Daemons, Newcrons, and Orks vs Xenos plus SoB and Daemonhunters

We tend to lose since they mostly spam super heavy tanks and walkers, but our side usually use flyers and gargantuan creatures.

The only good fluff-fag is the one that actually knows his stuff. Bonus points if his army is fluff-based too.

Honnestly, the worse I've seen was a Space Yiff neckbeard. "SPACE WOLVES STRONG! They are the bestestest."

That was before the 5th ed codex, I can't even imagine what the guy is like now.

taus, daemons/chaos-corrupted, tyranids/tyranid-infected. And maybe Kroot, I don't remember.

>> No.22970245

I remember Tyranids, Chaos flesh and Tau are forbidden.

Anyway, point of what I'm saying is that they could easily break away. They're warp capable for Christ's sakes.

Also: "When traveling the Kroot have no difficulty using warp-drives unlike the Tau, though how they do this is unknown to the Tau. They appear to have a natural affinity for navigating towards inhabitable planets, almost like a sixth sense."

Nope. According to the 3ED Codex, the Tau know about Kroot activities of fighting outside the Empire. The Tau don't care and will ignore it as long as the Kroot continue to support their Empire.

Anyways, I am interested it knowing what restrictions you're talking about. Because I never heard of any.

They allow them to eat the dead, they allow to build ships, and they allow those who don't agree with the treaty to go and come as they please to their home world. So what are these hefty restrictions? The just ''don't eat us'' one?

Don't be jumping to conclusions.
The road to Cruddace is paved with good intentions.

As a player in an area with all those area armies plus tau OP.
I came to the same conclusion as >>22970087

Speaking of cruddace OP, I'm so sorry.

>> No.22970531

They laughed at me when I started my first army as Tau two years ago. I laughed and drank their tears as their main force in Apoc died to a nuclear explosion when a seeker missile killed the warhound. Farsight then dropped down with 7 suits and opened a can of whop ass.

>All the hate because I play Tau.

What the-

That is so wrong on so many levels (the hate, not your post)
I'm going to assume you are winning games because that's the one thing that gets under the before mentioned skin, "How could this low class warrior beat me, a sayian elite" retardation logic that powers their little worlds.
It falls outside of what they are use to, the armies you mention are a part of a closed ring common updated armies that deals in MEQ and nothing else, if you beat them by doing something is (oh the irony) alien to them, and win, they will run amok.

Seriously, I play sisters, Eldar and Daemons, and I have to hear loud whines from CSM, marines of all flavors, to some extend guard, nids and pretty much every other army out there, I can't help but roll my eyes when the Space wolf/dark angel threaten to quit the table while calling me a horrible person when I'm winning with DAEMONS, freaking mono god army to boot.

Alright.. Rant over, in short, these people are the problem not you, I have nothing but respect for people playing with older armies because in all fairness they are playing with a handicap which they have chosen to deal with, and anything other than more marines and guard or newcrons are a welcomed sight.

Exactly, small closed minds that can't think outside the box.
They are horrible and frankly should be thankfull they got something other them marines and guards to play against.

It's getting rampant, seriously it's starting to be like large club games of Warhammer fantasy (On a side note, fantasy's players are waaaay better IMHO) where there is always, ALWAYS one Orc player more then there is room for on the evil team so he have to play for the good guys, and ALWAYS ends up playing against the other Orcs.

I managed to win a tourny as Eldar mainly because the necron players managed to eliminate themselves against eachother and a few lucky matches against guard.
