Jaxel is the owner and operator of 8WAYRUN; so if you have any issues with the website, he's the one you should be bugging about it. During the days of SOULCALIBUR II, Jaxel may have been considered one of the top Talim players in the world. But since then, he has become a total scrub who can barely play at a competitive level. Keeping that in mind, you should take anything he says about the game with a massive load of salt.
As another year goes by, we get another big platform upgrade for this website and forums! Lots of changes, which led to an extended downtime today (in addition to our 3 minutes of downtime every morning for regular maintenance). While last year's upgrade brought some pretty big structural changes, this year's upgrade is more of small quality of life changes.
Long hinted at, and long awaited for, Setsuka has just been announced for a return to SOULCALIBUR VI! Setsuka was first introduced in SOULCALIBUR III, and her moveset was adopted by Alpha Patroklos in SOULCALIBUR V. Official release date for Setsuka is set for August 4. Trailer and artwork after the break.
Along with Setsuka, also announced was the 2.20 balance update to be released alongside her, as well as the next character creation pack.
We reported a few months ago that SOULCALIBUR VI was added to the official lineup for EVO 2020. EVO 2019 being the largest SOULCALIBUR tournament ever, it was nice to see VI get another year at the premiere event. Unfortunately, due to complications caused by the SARS-CoV2 virus, the event has been officially cancelled. This was just announced on the @EVO twitter.
