So I have played 10 games in a row now and won all 10 easily, I've tabled 6 of the 10

My force is over powered and I'm starting to get bored of easy wins, what do I do. Tone down my list, let them win? I've even started to give my opposition tips to help them win...

What makes it worse is I usually miss rules that would help me further and allow them to do things that goes against rules...

I'm starting to think I've bought loaded dice.

Who are you playing against and what is your list. If your taking a win at all costs tourny style list to a local casual playing group then the wins are not surprising. It could also be that the people you play against just really suck.

yes this is a hard thing...in my store i am undefeated...and there is constant complaining about that i can be beaten..which i believe is totally ridiculous..i dont play power builds and constantly change my lists as not to get bored myself...i dont feel that you should weaken yourself to make other people happy..but more you should seek out players that are better than you...the other people should lift their game to beat you.

when i play people that are not as good im usually allowing them to redo thier moves as i explain what will happen...so i enjoy the teaching aspect and a deeper learning of the game..

so if you look at it that way,,you have just as much fun

I have a eldar mec and jetbike list (not going to give away my winning formula)

I have entered into a league to see competition is better. I would say the club I play with has some harden players and they bring good lists. They just don't seem to utilise them to there potential. Also they always underestimate the power of eldar jetbikes :)

Well there's your problem!

Nah on a serious note, problems like this can be a tough nut to crack. My advice would be to try and make fluff lists, fun lists that have no real interest in winning. Try some obscene comboes and see what happens. If your opponents win, they get a raise of morale and you loose nothing. You always have your winning list you can refer back to if they start getting overconfident.

I suppose it gives me a chance to play with a list or maybe add allies and start a new army.

I'm hoping a league might make things more interesting but it will take the fun out of it if things get to serious.

Or maybe I just accept Eldar can't be beaten :)

Everyone I know are having massive problems with Eldar, so there might be some truth to this :p
eldar is not unbeatable..i beat them quite regularly..but in saying that we dont face taudar power combos..
you just need to out play them...sounds hard but it can be done

I agree, it's all about tactics, too many opponents are scared of moving units up the table ad sit back hoping there fire power will do some damage.

I know I'd be decimated in hand to hand but I've yet to face an opponent with the guts to get up close, or should I say the tactical know how to get up close and keeping out of a fire ally way

I think the problem is your opponents don't have the experience to deal with your list. After years of playing against speedy dark eldar, eldar list I have learned to flood the board with my troops and lock them down into close combat but that was years of figuring out and Eldar are still a tough nut to crack. I would keep the normal list and after beating them tell them you would die if they got into close combat with you. A fun list of oddball units that you want to try might be fun. I have a April's fools list I play that is totally random units that I rarely would use in my regular army.
