What the hell is some people's beef with archers/snipers?

They are a "bad" class, really? I thought that they were pretty good, not once has a bow user ever been the downfall of my army.

But they can't attack on enemy phaaaaaaaaaaase. D:

Who needs a sniper when you have an Assassin or a Warrior?
Xenoblade is the spiritual successor of FF12.
999 and Zero Escape both deserve are Visual Novels to DIE for.

Personally my dislike for them is simply they can't counterattack. They're not BAD units but. I just prefer my units being able to defend themselves.

lack of 1-space counter is why i never use them

A unit that can counter is better than one that can't.

No Enemy Phase.

That's literally all it is.

And since Warriors and Assassins can use bows, they feel kind of irrelevant.

3 other classes have bows, all with comparable stats and with a second weapon available.
