I have decided to join today because i want some feedback from other people who play this game. I am student going for a math and statistics degree and in my spare time i use statistics to make sense of table top games (such as this one). I have been playing anima for half a year now as the azur alliance. This is not my first table top game, i also play W40k and have been for going on 7 years now on top of playing D&D (3.5, screw 4.0) for 11 years (i will not include all the games i play here) so you know my credentials are in order. Now the issue i keep running into is that the azur alliance is just not good enough, their characters do not do enough damage or if they do they are to expensive or will die when matched against anyone else. They have some good things like deadmoon and Alastor are cool, Reindhold can be fun and maximo and hardo are interesting but overall the azur alliance when compared to other teams just sucks. Samael has dinah,ophiel,konosuke and other amazing characters as well as better advantages. The empire is just broken in every aspect, the church is almost as bad as the empire and wissenschaft has cordelia (lets just say nothing more about that). In short, after doing out the probability and playing many games i just can see the azur alliance being any good. I have heard that they are working on it and some characters will be released to off set this (i am looking at you Aizen) but when i look at the other people being released they are just as good so nothing is going to change. What do you guys think, anyone have anything to save the Azur alliance or are they just a cool fluffly team but in the game they are terrible.
