Jaxel is the owner and operator of 8WAYRUN; so if you have any issues with the website, he's the one you should be bugging about it. During the days of SOULCALIBUR II, Jaxel may have been considered one of the top Talim players in the world. But since then, he has become a total scrub who can barely play at a competitive level. Keeping that in mind, you should take anything he says about the game with a massive load of salt.
WELCOME BACK FELLAS! I just can't express how happy I am about this. I am super hyped to think that they might just maybe possibly have abandoned their ill-advised 17 year timeskip with all those forgettable characters and are going back to their roots. Do young mitsu and Sophie mean we're getting soul blade two? I HOPE SO. Even if it's an mk9 style reboot of the first 3 games I'd be more than thrilled.
