The competitive scene did not die after 2 years. There were still multiple majors with international competition 4 years in both here in the U.S and France. Calibur has never had a consistently large tournament attendance, it lasted just as long as the other Calibur's did competitively technically even longer because Big E still supports it. Your friend quitting competition 2 years in says nothing about the tournament scene, its competition, or SCV's depth as a fighting game. People who say SC6 feels like SC2 are either living in the past and hoping for SC2 again or have no idea what they're talking about. SC6 feels like SC6. Saying SC2 is the definitive Calibur is subjective.24 hours till Cassandra guys!! WHOOOO lol
Wait, who said SCV was a good game by just "gameplay" standards? That person needs to stop lying. SC is my favorite fighting game series and I can admit 5 was stripped if depth, charm and that SC "feel".
Thats why after about 2 years the compeitive scene for it all but died.
My friend made top 8 in 2 majors in 2016 (Summer Jam and I forgot the other) and he stopped playing the game in 2014. That speaks to how small the scene got and how simple the game honestly is. (Not saying my friend isnt a great player...cause he is)
SCVI is already said to be better by people who play SC competitively. They say it feels like 2, which is honestly the definitive one of the series. So, I think they could release a great game by June. They probably wont, it might be September but, they could.
