Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

Basically they want to be talking about balance for the game and their vision for it.
page 1573 if you want to see what others said they'll be talking about.
But I think that's about it.

I might potentially stay waiting with false hope for Cassandra.
Oh okay. Thanks :) I suppose we will get no news of Cassandra ?

I really hate being pessimistic but I’m a realist.
I don’t think it’s looking good for SC6 in terms of a growing success rate.

I’ve just dropped out of the live stream they had concerning character balance and it quite evident that the western side of the world had nothing to do with it.

As they were discussing top 5 characters used by the JP player base and the changes to them before and after patch 1.30.
2B
Ivy
Nightmare
Siegfried
Amy

They don’t appear to be talking about balance as a whole, the game itself or by an international standpoint.

And as a devoted lover of Soulcalibur this has thrown me back a little because it highlights how non important the West are as a demographic.
It was thoughtful of them to apologise for the lack of communication since EVO japan, but I feel that was directed at the JP fan base if you consider the set up.

Im gonna give it until EVO this year but if you don’t water your plants kids... they die.

Well, that arguably is exactly the reason why the game actually turned out good to begin with, so I personally can't hate the approach as a whole even if it has some negative sides to it here and there.

I'm starting to think this kind of secrecy has only worked against SC. It may have better to get it clear right off the bat, like this.
I suspect it has to do something with just Cassandra not being ready yet.

It's also Bamco the experts of Secrecy, you know before T7 S2 they didn't give any clue that the game will have something after first season, like NO clue at all. They may be may silent just because there is nothing plan (the worst case/hope it's not the case), or in the way more best case just to create the huge surprise effect when (if/ihope) reveal season 2 at Evo, gotta say that as much i hate it a lot at first but the surprise effect was so big gotta give them that, let's hope the silence for SC6 means something huge is coming soon, and honestly i feel the chances are in the + side if you consider all the events and facts.

Shame on me for adding to everyone's low morale here, but indeed, if Cassandra is gonna be released "before or during summer," well, summer lasts until, like, September 21 or so. Therefore, Bamco could indeed sit around and wait all the way until EVO to reveal her... ☹ That's a long drought.

This with a slow reveal of content for the DLC character would be the best way to handle it in my opinion. For instance, reveal all DLC characters via character art once they allow people to buy the season pass, and then with each month either reveal character screenshots or character gameplay. That way people know what they're paying for and there is a constant stream of news rather than having several months of silence.

I like this idea a lot. I find it way better than blind-buying and wondering WHEN content will ever come out. Yes, they dangle the carrot in front of you until the content finally arrives, but at least you have some visual reassurance of what you're getting, so you can stay enthusiastic until its arrival.

To me it just doesn’t make sense how they don’t have a clear schedule with releasing dlc. I know there’s a lot of stuff that i don’t have knowledge off but if you’re going to charge people €30 for a season pass then you should have atleast some clear information about the dates..
