I load everyone to the balls with uh....materia balls. Nobody is set to a specific magic type because I worry more about making sure that every magic i'm trying to level is present in the party at once. I only care about who has what materia for specific events or fights. Otherwise it's all about maximizing AP gain.Did you try to experiment different characters with different materias, or did you feel the characters were more appropriate towards certain ones? Because I always felt the latter. I.E. Aerith felt like the mage of the group, so I always gave her stuff like mp plus, cure, fire, ice, W-Magic, etc. Yuffie is a nimble ninja, so I give her steal, time, throw, gil plus. Barret was the tank, Tifa was a skillful monk with counters things a fighter would do, Red XIII was the analytical tactician/support with buff and deff, and Cloud probably was my jack-of-all-trades guy.
Of course, I had to switch the materials around to match the situations, but I personally thought some characters would prefer certain types of materias
