Hello, couldn't resist returning to soul calibur after VI was announced and seeing so many old returning characters (hoping for the return of setsuka or her play style). Not new to the series and have experience in fighting games but I never really understood the meta of soul caliber or how the game was to be properly played. Hopefully you guys here can answer this question or point me to threads that answers this for me.

Is the meta of Soul Calibur comparable to anything else? I play mostly Tekken and Dead or Alive as far as 3D fighters and Blazblue for 2D; these games I have somewhat understanding of what I should be doing.

Its not combo heavy like Tekken, and more focused on neutral unlike DOA; so what should my be aiming for when playing?
