Hi, I found this: The Tau powergamer test.
What do you think of it? What's silly, what's good?
The whole thing is silly, that's kinda the point. The thing about hammerheads being 2 pts each is kinda retarded as it's virtually a requirement for Tau armies.
Overall score: 14
Normal Gamer (not suprised in the least)

What? Using kroot squads are powergaming? Well, I always thought my list was at least a bit fluffy, and not powergamin, one railhead, over 30% in troops and 2 squads of kroot.
But behold, I'm a slightly competitive gamer just because i dumped most of my points in elites and troops.
By the way, I found this very silly. Powergamin for taking kroot?!?!
no, they gave you powergame points for taking squads of exactly 10 kroot.
Anyway, got 37. Only 6 FW, no devil fish? Got me nailed. 2 stealth teams? Cisis with driones? Over 35% in Elites? Over 35% in heavy?
I got 28.
Having 2 HQ's, 2 Railheads, a XV88 team with ASS and shield drones killed me.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
I think its flawed somewhat.
Like for example. I have 4 squads of 10 Firewarriors not in a DF. 6 points each? Come on....
And of course,So I have maybes 35% troops? So I also have 28% and 15%?? o__O So I have to ADD points O___oit's cumulative!
Same for the Elites....

17 for me! Slightly Competitive Gamer...
Wow this thing really works.. haha :ninja:
I had my friends took this test and it turned out all true.
For being a slightly competitive gamer makes me want to win most of the time when I play and also dont want my opponent to grieve over the loss. This is what I always do (always).. when my opponent starts to losing bad due to poor tactic/bad dice rolls, then I would push out my units to feed him purposily to make him feel better (like he's actually doing something) .. and try to minimize the victory point in all.
My other friend, who scores a 27 (the only Tau army list he ever played.. but it reflected true upon his play-style on his main chaos army).. Moderate Competitive Gamer. It's in him, and his motto.. Play-to-win or dont play at all. Sometimes he would get really angry because we are not helping him instead of his opponent on beating him (he never loss one game, so it's only fair to help his opponent .. which is happen to be our friend too).
Now this friend of mine who plays guardsmen casually scored a 5.. he's a fluff player who doesnt care about anything other than having fun. Even when we are cheating him when we play.. haha :x

Dude, you haven't done the test correctly.Originally Posted by Toastee
The line about 6-11 fire warriors, is 6-11 fire warriors in total, not units of 6-11 fire warriors. You cannot get this penalty if you have 2 units of fire warriors.
And the troops % clearly says less than. If you have 35% troops, you do not have less than 28% troops.
Mastershake, it's only a hammerhead with a railgun that gives you 2 pts (3 railheads totals 8pts, 3 ionheads only totals 1pt), and while a requirement in good lists, some people don't take it, thus get less scores (because their list is less competitive). Simple.
lordnoobs, using squads of 10 kroot, no matter how many you have, is minimising troop choices (but squads of 10 kroot are awesome, any great gamer uses squads of 10 kroot).
My friendly list gets 12, normal gamer, my competitive list gets 47, highly competitive gamer.
Aside from the %'s, everything changes dramatically depending on how big of an army we are talking about. It's surely silly but here goes:
1000 static scores a 10
1000 hybrid scores a 33 (eep!)
1500 mech scores a 19
