Don't worry, unlike Facebook, Discord integration is not going away! However, the integration system with Discord had to be changed, and because of this, everyone's account which had been linked to Discord has been un-linked. If you try to log into the forums with the Discord button, before you re-link your account, you may receive an email association collision error. As such, you will have to log into your account with your normal username/email and password. After which, you can re-link your forum account to your Discord account.

If you don't remember your account password, you can use the lost password form to get a password reset sent to your email. If you're still having issues, please use the contact us form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Again, I am sorry for this, but because of security protocols, we couldn't just copy the old information over to the new...
Facebook Support Coming to an End...

Yesterday, Facebook disabled our connected app here at 8WAYRUN. They claim we are "creating a negative user experience that is in violation of our Platform Policies". Naturally, that vague accusation doesn't mean anything. Trying to get in contact with Facebook about this returns canned responses which in no way give us further details on the problem. As Facebook, like many web platforms have no real customer service; it doesn't look like this problem will get fixed anytime soon.

As such, Facebook integrated features on this website, such as single sign-on may be broken. If you use Facebook to log into this website, please make sure your account has been updated with other login methods. Definitely be sure to add a password to your account so that you can login without depending on third-party services. If you are having problems logging into your account, please use the "Contact Us" form in the footer.

We now know that Season 2 of SOULCALIBUR VI officially starts on November 25. In addition to a new trailer, which shows off some more of Hilde, we also learn a few new details of some major combat changes. Firstly, we're getting a new "Soul Attack" system, which seems very similar to Tekken 7's own "Rage Art". There is also a new "Resist Impact", which will allow you to parry any move in the game, even unblockables; it remains to be seen if you can parry break attacks.

Along with the release of Cassandra yesterday, SOULCALIBUR VI was also updated to version 1.50.

Mostly unimportant stuff. However, this morning, BANDAI NAMCO has updated their official patch notes with character specific balance changes! Those changes can be found below.
