Why is there so much fuss over what characters are good and bad?

Everybody is amazing if you actually take the time to train them. In Sacred Stones the one exception is Tethys as she is the only character who can never do damage. Everyone at their full potential is amazing. In Sacred Stones my friend had a level nine unpromoted berserk Ephraim mow down half of an army of mages, while his level four Falcoknight Tana soloed the level's boss, a general, in two rounds then moved in and singlehandedly took down the other half of the army without being hit a single time. The other eight people, who he hadn't been leveling much, struggled to beat a mixed force that was approximately equal in size to the groups of mages that Tana and Ephraim were killing. But in this game anyone you focus on leveling can become godlike.

If there's anything FE fans do well, it's argue over characters, tier lists, turn counts, and comparing the games.

Ignore 'em, 'cuz you can't change 'em.

Pretty much this. The old ranking system has most of us stuck in the 'Tier List/Efficiency' mindset.

That's the same view I hold, but you can't change idiots. I just ignore them.

Because that's what people do on gameboards?

In my beliefs, any character can be insanely good depending how well you raise them and from my point of view In one of my game saves, Ive spent a grand total of 110 hours and made everyone awsome.

Because otherwise there'd be nothing but marriage topics and people would make start asking why there's so much fuss over what characters marry who.

That another factor too and I rather find it quite annoying now. I was fine with it at first but as soon as everyone keeps talking about their OP children, I just didn't care anymore and just went with my own beliefs.

Which sucks because it only really matters for post-game content, which I doubt anyone is even preparing for at this point.
