Japan has it's 3rd COVID - 19 state of emergency this year. I don't even think SCVI is getting a Season 3 anymore. Setsuka's EZ Normals will never be removed. :(

I guess Woahhzz's win at WePlayUFL for SCVI didn't matter. Everyone wants Setsuka's JFs to remain pointless.
He won pulling off JFs left and right, not using any "EZ" imputs as far as I'm aware (I'm not a Setsuka player myself, but I've seen plenty of JF pink weapon trails from Woahhzz at that tournament). Which means "EZ" imputs were a non-factor, which is exactly what was expected to begin with, since their purpose is to help new players, not pros. Which means everything works exactly as it's supposed to.

Woahhzz only did 6A+B from Neutral. He got 2143BB in combos, but I saw the JF version once. The Pink Trail is from Vernal Reflection only buffing JFU & it's terrible. Your wrong about the purpose of the EZ inputs. They were made to ruin Setsuka. 1A JF is completely pointless because both the normal version & the JF Version are -6 on HIt, That's why Woahhzz was using 2361K because it was 0 on Hit. When Setsuka came out in August her JFs were pointless. That is why I whined to get 3B+KB & 6A+B nerfed. Patch 2.30, Setsuka's 4B:B & 1A+B JF matter a lot more, The normals aren't going to be removed and that's sad because nerfing Setsuka's normals is impossible. RIP SCVI Season 3.

Well if she's been ruined for you, play someone else or go back to a previous game. It's not out of the ordinary for players to switch characters because they've been changed to the point they don't feel satisfying to play. That's happened to me multiple times, you get used to it.

I use to play Xianghua in SCII because I enjoyed her style. Then when SCIII came out, X was insanely OP. I dropped Xianghua because old games couldn't be patched. Then I mained Setsuka because she was a breath of fresh air being a new character & difficult. Setsuka was replaced for no reason by A. Pat. I maining Leixia for SCV & Xianghua for Season 1 & most of Season 2. I knew Setsuka would return, but I didn't expect her to be EZ. I want the Normals gone so Setsuka can be herself again. I can do the JFs, but the Normals do the same thing & there are no frame differences. At least 4B:B & 1A+B JF matters. 1A is really bad because this is the only JF that's pointless. Every JF Setsuka has in SCVI matters except 1A. I hoped Woahhzz's win would convince Project Soul to remove Setsuka's EZ Normals. It's sad that SCVI Season 3 isn't happening now because of a 3rd COVID - 19 State of Emergency in Japan.

Good, you've already got someone you're familiar with. Drop Setsuka and pick up Xianghua again.

EDIT:

Goddammit Yoshie don't pull on my heart strings like that.

No, Setsuka is too important to me. I love doing the JFs, but I just want the EZ Normals to be removed so her JFs will do insane DMG.

I have legit criticism about the EZ Normals, but everyone hates me for wanting Setsuka's JFs to matter.

They do matter already because the "EZ" commands do way less damage and cost meter, but that's not enough for you so you should just drop Setsuka because Project Soul is never going to get rid of them. You're the only person to complain about them compared to the plethora of players that use them. There's only one JF move that I think needs a significant buff and that's 1AAA by making the string fully available on whiff, making it jail and the last move being a break attack that guard breaks. I sent that request a long time ago and yet I can still enjoy playing Setsuka because her flow chart, while simple is still extremely satisfying to pull off.

I was just hoping for SCVI S3.
If they do Season 3 SC6, which for now is still a thing of interrogation, i am for it but they will need to release it with it a next gen patch upgrade + netcode improvement.

Honestly with next gen that just dropped i wouldn't mind no season 3 if it means we will get SC7 around 2023, so 2 years from now. Considering Soul Calibur 6 released in 2018, 5 years between the 2 games isn't that unrealistic.

The most common annoying thing in all fighting games in this generations are 2 things: Netcode/Overall online experience, and loading times.

Soul Calibur 6 doesn't have loading times that are too annoying level like Tekken 7 PS4 for example, but it's always nice to have fast loading times, specially now that i taste it in some games it really nice change. And about netcode, i think Japanese games devs are starting to finally give importance to this aspect for their fighting games, so for SC7 if the game will be a thing (and i think it will) it could have a real solid netcode (fast loading are pretty much given)

A brain new Soul Calibur game designed around SSD, and that would have a solid rock netcode, like similar to GG Strive, that would super neat.
