I've gotten beaten by tyrinid armys all the time :realmad: it's so annoying!
What tactics can i use against them? :confused: :
Firstly, enjoy your stay at librarium online.
Secondly, pure ranting will get you nowhere, perhaps you should offer more information, such as what army you use and what types of creatures you face.
I will post again when you have cleared everything up
You can also search the forums. There are several threads about Necron vs Tyranid tactics you could reference.

You want to beat nids? easy. To defeat the nids you will have to
-cut down the horde of cheap bugger(gaunts for example) with massive small arm fire
-tyranids suck when outside synapse so shoot the synapse creature
-aim your bigggest guns at tyranids monstruous creatures
-kill genestealers before they kill you
I would really help if you posted both of your army list.
You'll always struggle with nids simply because if you go for destroyers you'll struggle to take out the TMC's. If you go for heavy destroyers to negate the 2+ save you'll struggle to take out the large hordes.
take both in a large-points battle and you're fine.
I'm going to try that tonight. The problem is though that it leaves you so short on standard Necrons. Going to try 2 HD's and 5 Destroyers tonight and hope that he doesnt field more that 2 TMC's My other tactic is 6 HD's but I tend to get swarmed when I try that. It's a good job I'm not bothered about winning!!
I would say use a VoD to get you out of CC if you get caught with a Tyrant or something (thats what I do). I also would say use a monlith for the same purpose, as it can save Necrons. Plus he will have problems killing it, right? I dont know about newer tyranid weapons in the new codex, but in my old one they arent that great at anti-tank, espcially since they cant get extra dice against a 'Lith. I usually take Spyders,too, as he has problems hurting them, and they can hurt big ones somewhat, too. And I agree about killing Genestealers before they kill you!!!
Actually Tyranids are decent against vehicles, since a good amount of them have rending claws or are monstrous. But no, they still can't rend the living metal of a Monolith, which as a bug player is very annoying.
Dont bother with MCs if you can shoot closer stuff, especially if its fast.
