In addition, the poster also dropped some info on points drops:

Again, these are unconfirmed so they might be wrong, mistranslated, or someone is just flat out messing with folks. However, let’s assume these are partially accurate. That poses some interesting questions for T’au Players out there! Furthermore, it makes us wonder if their Markerlight table has been tweaked at all. So many more questions than answers…


Well T’au Players – if these are real, what are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below!
