I completely agree with you, but doesn't the usefulness of SoA boil down to how many counters do you plan to use in an encounter?
I see that on paper it can be broken if you chose your maneuvers around it; what interests me is how would look the pool (not necessarly the best pool) of maneuver that can gain valor from SoA.

On the same line, I would like to know what do you think is the best stance for a character not built to exploit SoA.

Thanks in advance.
