Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

I'd rather we get constant teasers that are spread out properly to maintain excitement than an information overload of amazing things in a single day. Granted, they probably made headlines for revealing multiple upcoming content in a single day.
While I recognize this is a reasonable "your mileage may vary" sort of thing, I also have to say this is a sentiment I've never understood: I just don't see the value in being kept in the dark about upcoming content for longer than is necessary. In other words, if there were six characters being released in a given year, I would rather know all six on day one than be spoon-fed one reveal every two months, if it were a matter of free choice. To me the wait is more reasonable with no mystery involved, especially if that mystery came about as an artificial construct used in an effort to prop up enthusiasm.

And honestly, even if they had gone farther than just revealing Haohmaru and a rough outline of the rest of the season two content, it seems to me there would actually be more hype for most veteran players, since you could speculate on what the returning or new characters would ultimately look like, play-wise. Yes indeed, I would gladly trade up to knowing the exact identities of the Season 2 Four in an instant if I could. But I guess those of you who have a preference for info being doled out slowly are fortunate in that regard, because Namco definitely leans much more closely towards that approach as opposed to full info dumps--particularly for Soulcalibur.

2 month ago, Kissandra released + promised Season 2 = steamchart of SC raised from 200 to 1600
Now, steamchart of SC returns from 1600 to 200

It seems that the problem is not in the lack of characters, not in patches, and not that the players have forgotten SC ( Street Fighter has about the same 1,500 -2000 online)
Lots of players want SС, they just got not what they wanted

The main hero of the game (Groh) is the weakest and most unpopular character (i dont see groh mainers on twitch and youtube).
The main villain of the game (Azwel) is undoubtedly the most powerful character
IMHO it says a lot about the game

Uhhh I guess? I just don’t feel like playing because I really want a korean swordsman in the game and the game needs a content refresh desperately. Until then I’ll just wait I guess

I've taken a little break as of now to try and be refreshed for Season 2, but the thought that Hwang will be gracing us and there will be new tools for everyone has me completely excited.

I'm hoping with all my heart we aren't doing another Cassandra like wait for Season 2. Which so far I'm worried but I have some hope.

I’ve been on and off with this game myself. If we’re in for a long wait for Season 2, then let’s just say it better be worth it.

Also, how dare an Amy main express hope on here? That should be disappointment to you people goddamnit. Kappa

@LisaK The petty asshole in me would love to see Salia make a substantial appearance in a Soul Calibur game just so I could watch Sieg x Hilde shippers get salty when they notice how Sieg and Salia are "good friends" as per the New Legends of PS artbook. :P
I enjoy collecting salt.

I believe she uses a sword of some kind, rather than a lance, based on concept art.
I'm sure there's a way to distinguish her from Hilde aesthetically, hopefully without making her look like a prostitute.
