Finally managed to play my first Defiance game! Here is how each character worked: - Jaan Staar: My character, good surviability and so many wounds that I didn't worry about going inconscious. Could tank enemies thanks to huge HP pool and rerolls. Also hits hard on Close Combat, and the Symbiobomb proved usefult to directly kill a Nox. - Quiang Gao: Very tanky, as expected, but also good at dishing damage. During a couple of turns the enemy hackers hit him vey hard and we were worried, but against the rest of the enemies he was very good. - John Hawkwood: He turned out to be our "hacker", thanks to the extra die provided by the Focused state. Good support character as we could always see which enemy unit activated next. The player is getting a bodyguard for the next mission to do the shooting while he relaxes and activates consoles XDDD - Lucien Sforza: Turned out to be the weakest character of the team, as the lackluster Rifle wasn't very effective even against Targgeted enemies. The player complained a lot because of this, we'll see how the character progresses through the Campaign, I hope he becomes more useful.
