Devil Jin is a character that has been banned since the beginning of Soulcalibur V. Whether your reasoning for wanting him gone was due to his crazy pre-patch ringouts or his Tekken origins, the official reasoning for the ban was from the lack of a character model. This means that we are forced to use character creation mode to access him.

The potential problems with that is that there are certain hitbox issues that can be induced by the custom characters that cause unintended misses or hits. Recently, we have developed a team in response to the online players who use Devil Jin and don't want to go out to tournaments because of the ban.

THE SOLUTION

We have made and set a standard character in creation mode. That way we can have consistency in any wonky hitboxes that may occur by using the same model every time. Now it is like the wonky hitboxes we already have for the characters in SCV!

Here is the video made by Avylon. If you don't know who they are, they are the ones responsible for getting off-stream matches on YouTube and running brackets at events. Subscribe to their YouTube channel for Soulcalibur V tournament matches!


The first tournament to allow Devil Jin will be Summer Jam or possibly the side tournament at CEO. We hope to see you all learning how to use and beat the character for the future.

If you really want to take up tournament time giving DJ a nice outfit, that's on you. A quicker and more effecient way is just giving him the mummy since it's one of the first things you already have from the start.
 
i wish theyd stop trying to make SC tekken.

if we wanted to play that, we'd go buy it

and now we're hearing about this right before SJ coming up? most of us haven't given a crap about DJ all this time bcs he's banned, but now we have to cover our asses and read up on his data just in case some nobody shows up with a DJ main?

guess ill work extra hard on my zoning game - _-
