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.

EVO, the yearly tournament just released their games list for the upcoming championship this summer. Among the staples of Street Fighter, Smash Bros, Marvel and Tekken; SOULCALIBUR also made the list for the second year in a row! Last year's EVO was attended by over 700 players and was won by Yuttoto from Japan.

EVO 2020 takes place this year between July 31 and August 2 in Las Vegas. It is considered the largest and most important fighting game tournament in the world and players tend to save up all year to be able to attend. More information about the event can be found on the EVO website.

Voldo Soul Gauge Glitch Discovered... Summarily Banned From Tournament Play
  • 3,234

Recently a glitch was discovered with Voldo that allows him to activate Soul Charge, or his Critical Edge, even if he has less than 1 bar of super. I wont go into more details on how to do the glitch, but it's pretty evident, easy to spot, and not something a Voldo player would ever do "by accident". This is a potentially game breaking bug, and we have to wait for Namco Bandai to fix it via game patches.

Speaking with other players and moderators, the general consensus seems to be to soft-ban the glitch. Voldo would not be banned, but the use of the glitch would be. If a player does the glitch in a tournament match, they will automatically lose that MATCH. This is because using a Critical Edge through this glitch may often result in the end of the current round. If such a case were to happen, it would be hard to return to the status quo. To make things easier for tournament organizers, and uniformity of enforcement, we have decided to penalize an entire match.
