UPDATE: This post has been updated with the English patch notes..
When v1.10 came out, we already knew that the next patch was scheduled for January. Because of the release of 2B, they had already announced their intentions for changes. While we had basic planned changes, we didn't know character specific nerfs and/or buffs. Well as of this moment, we have those details... in Japanese.
Last month, we ran a contest based on people's creativity with create-a-soul. The contest prizes (and the idea for the contest in the first place) were provided from QanbaUSA (use promo code 8WAYRUN2018 for a 10% discount on all orders). We asked you to post your best CAS creations and the moderation team and Qanba would select our favorites, and reward the top three with some Collector's Editions for SC6; featuring a beautiful Sophitia statue, and a steelbook that yells at you when you open it.
In addition to today's patch notes reveal, Namco-Bandai has also confirmed that 2B, star of Square-Enix's Nier: Automata, will be released this Tuesday! Included with 2B, will be her special stage, custom character parts and music.
We've known for a few days now that a patch was coming soon for SOULCALIBUR VI that addressed some network and character creation issues with the game. However, we did not know how the upcoming patch would affect balance, or if it would affect balance at all... well now we do! Namco-Bandai has posted official patch notes, which you can find below:
Man, Qanba USA really loves you guys! For the third month in a row now, they have been supplying us with arcade sticks and goodies to show their support for the SOULCALIBUR community.
This time, they have given us three, yes three, collector's editions for SC6 for the Xbox One. Yes, I'm sure by now, all you already have your copies of SC6 and have been playing furiously since October. However, that doesn't mean you managed to get your hands on a collector's edition, with it's beautiful Sophitia statue. Last month's contest was a test of skill (congratulations to @IvantheTerrible for his win); but this month's contest will be a test of creativity!
What do we want to see? It's simple, Show us your best create-a-soul characters. You can include them in the comments as screenshots or videos on youtube. At the end of the month, the moderation team here at 8WAYRUN will review all the entries and pick out our top 3 favorites!
Scheduled for release tomorrow on PS4, and later in the week for Xbox One and PC/Steam, the first post-release patch for SOULCALIBUR VI has been revealed. These patch notes are being taken from the Japanese Soul Archive; so bear with us for the translation:
Voldo and Tira Soul Gauge bugs have been fixed. They will no longer be able to use Soul Gauge techniques before they actually have the required amount of meter.
Adjusted the tracking of Geralt's and Tira's unblockables. Not quite sure what this one means, but it is assumed to be an adjustment to their ability to tech trap.
In addition to the above changes, there is also a fix to the rankings display for the PC/Steam version of the game. Again, we don't really know what this means.
NEC 19 will be held in King of Prussia, PA, December 14-16th. As of right now, we have representatives from Singapore, France and Mexico confirmed. As well as America's best, and possibly Canadian representatives!
Now we're trying to pull in the money to help Kura (The top Korean competitor) to NEC! He's already received a bit of help, and promotes a donation goal to get to NEC himself via his twitch:
