Does it matter who I use?

There are now about 50+ new characters since I last played. I was wondering how much of a disadvantage might I be at using the characters I am used to? The characters I use are Reboldeaux, Coimbra, and Auch characters like: Lisa, Emilia, Brunie, Soho, Lorch, Mia, Irawain, Soso, Angie, etc. I'll probably use them again since I am used to them but just wondering if they're inferior to the newer UPC's. Any kind of feedback is cool, thanks guys. :)

+1 game need be balanced but we should start work 1 by 1 because that is a lot work if we presionate too much with that maybe can change idea of Administrators about do it

Read it and vote https://granado-espada.to/index.php?threads/some-suggestion-about-figther.44/ this is a initial change i was suggested with this keep totaly out but we can experimentate and be how progress in power and be little change and no broke the char and then reverse changes

When getting started its always good to have a buffer, and one of the better ones is available in Coimbra, Emilia. Her protection field can get you out of some nasty situations and has wizard buffs plus Enhanced Tactics.

For your other 2 slots pick depending on your gear. If you have weaker gear its a good idea to get 1 tankier char and 1 dps. Claude/Idge are good options which you can make use of during late game as well for debuffing. For dps you have a lot of choices, but musk/brunie seem to be quick and easy choices.

keep stock Fighter. Crusader stance is very useful for progressing questlines, especially Montoro-Grandies recruitment, unless they nerfed those missions.

In short- you can still use utility -based old chars for buffing\debuffing, but current balance killed 90% of old DPS chars (they`re simply outscaled now by rare\ modern quest chars).
Last 50 chars (dunno if that`s exact, but ~~ from the time of Codename L and SFLynn release) is the most destructive thing for the game balance ever. Pre-CNL there was a good reason to play 80% of chars, they was needed due to contexts and situations. Damage gap between stock&early quest chars and "modern" quest chars was not that big, and rare chars was usually pure-PVP based with defensive stats in their buffs instead of offensive in quest char` buffs. Compare SFL & Lynn, EJudith and Judith, Olivia& Spy Olivia- usually quest versions was more into damage, but rare char was able to survive better.
Since then...
CNL was the 1st char that was overall destructive for game meta. Her damage was too much, and job skill made her a good universal pick (i think until Cr.Daria release, that`s a couple of years!)
Not only Leona required way more stuff to use her (CTB weekly grind for book), but she was simply put into buffer role.
Next big destructive call was Aclla - she simply outdamaged every single MDPS on release. Her 20k% summary channelings was out of meta by any means, she basically 1-2shot most of actual missions. And then its began- Aclla, QSJoshua, Ruby...
IMC caputred themselves in their greed. They kept producing more and more powerful characters to milk money.
At the moment there`re only a few viable quest DPS, and their viability is mostly "well, it`s not THAT bad".
Dont get it wrong, tho. Most of characters, if equpped good & combined with some knowledge, can compplete almost all current single- player content (scenario, private missions, stuff). But it`s VERY hard to compete with rare (meta) chars (some of modern rare chars is still "for fun", not so focused on damage, but using interesting mechanics, like Hildegarde, Nike,Freya,etc. They`re out of this, ofc.) using even best quest DPS.
So...you can pick someone like Calyce, go till the lategame with her solo, but in lategame she`s simply outscaled by Moon\MSB. Same with other DPS categories.

Tho that`s where Andromeda have its biggest chance to shine, as you`re able to get even chars which is P2W on other servers. I see it as the top important feature, tbh.

Im on for this, i love my old rnpcs but they are too weak in comparison to even use outside of derping and messing arround... the easier balance its to bump their base stats to be more align with modern rnpcs, a more indept balance would be bumping the % stats their stances passives have and the skills themselves... an utopía would be giving them unique custom stances (stares at mr boma)
