@GML: First off, stop misquoting me.Every time I have quoted you, I have not changed a single word that you have written. So every quote has been accurate to what you have written.
Just to grab one misquote:
On the more positive side though, T'au got a real boost in shooting, now they have 3 shooting phases...
I used a ":" then a Link, explaining it. not "..."
Secondly stop putting words in my mouth.Where?
You claim Tau have 3 shooting phases, which would imply that Tau have three phases in which they can shoot in the same turn. I'll even give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you are referring to game turn, not player turn.
I never mentioned the same turn, I was referring to the article which I provided a link to in the same sentence. Would you like me to cut your sentences in half when I quote you?
You are building up strawmen arguments and then attacking me for something I didn't even say.
Thirdly you are the one moving the goalposts to try and punch holes in my conclusions.Ah yes, arbitrarily. Or it's a typo, because everyone is perfect when writing on the internet. Let's ignore every time I used the word "Terminator" and instead focus on the one time I used "Terminators."
You arbitrarily mix single and plural, when it suits you.
You actually think several terminators and a single MEQ model was the comparison I did, and not the other way around?
No the focus was that you made an error in assuming it was a single MEQ model, and not an opponent playing a MEQ army. Then you started to attack my conclusion from the wrong point of view.
But let's address this whole moving of goalposts:
Your first statement was this:
On the more positive side though, T'au got a real boost in shooting, now they have 3 shooting phases...You claim Tau have 3 shooting phases, which would imply that Tau have three phases in which they can shoot in the same turn. I'll even give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you are referring to game turn, not player turn.
Your error is pointed out to not be the case what so ever in that there is no way that the Tau have three shooting phases in a (game) turn.
Yet again you attack the strawman, I never mentioned "Turn". I was referring to Frankie's article. I suggest you read it before you make any more assumptions.
Your flopping between a plural use for MEQ, and singular for GEQ, would imply that the plural is due to the fact that you are referring to to separate engagements. At no point did you clearly state that you are going for an equal valued opponent. When I point that out, then you bring out the idea that you clearly meant for the engagement to be a 3v1 fight.
What it all comes down to is, quite simply, this:
You stated that the Tau get 3 shooting phases, which is incorrect because they are able to shoot in three separate player turns. You can throw math out all you want and change how things match up, but in the end you are wrong.
Again you make faulty assumptions building a strawman and attacking the semantics.
I do not know how you play your games, but I mostly play with equal points on both sides.
I agree with you that T'au do not get 3 shooting phases during the same player turn nor in the same game turn, I even spelled it out for you, that it takes 3 player turns.
But again if you read the article, you will understand that I am just adding a third phase to Frankie's two phases, which I also proved to you based on the firepower T'au can put out during these three phases.
