yea but the thing is. Hwang himself isnt exactly a great designed character in my opinion (i dont hate him but he is kinda whatever) they'd have to do alot to make him as good as the others.
His moveset so far kinda felt unfinished even worse on yun. And if you just look at a black sillhouette of hwang it could literally be anyone. Compared to rest of the cast who are easily recognizable. I just dont see how hwang has any advantage in that area compared to their other options. And bringing him back just because of nostalgia is dumb.

I disagree with that, considering the silhouettes for the random encounters in Libra of Soul is what got people guessing Hwang would be in the game to begin with, the guy on the far left who has a curved sword that is obviously not a Xianghua weapon. The Korean boys have their own unique factor as well as anyone else. One of them deserves to make it in, and Hwang is more logical than Yun-seong. It very well could be Yun-seong instead, for more friendliness for the future, but it would serve to frustrate and enrage Hwang fans feeling strung along and jerked around.

I also feel it's the Ultimate right time for Hwang, also if he comes back, he'll pretty much feel like "almost" a brand new character, while of course retaining some of his core aspects and moves.

With that, he also has a small appearance in SC6 already, while it doesn't confirm anything, but that's a nice plus to consider tho.

Hwang has an okay chance but I wouldn’t hold my breath considering how he hasn’t been used in a long time. Before Hilde was revealed, my S2 prediction was Hwang/Haohmaru/Setsuka/Newcomer. I still think a newcomer will likely happen after the interview, but we’ll see. The way I look at it is that if it’s Hwang, cool. If it’s someone else, or something new, also cool.

Also, I prefer Hwang over Yun-seong, but alas, they seem dead set on keeping the latter in the spotlight.

And that's where I disagree with you.

Is true that Hwang had similarities to Mitsurugi in Soul Edge and to Xianghua in Soulcalibur 1 but then again, Soulcalibur 1 had Sophitia/Lizardman, Nightmare/Siegfried, Astaroth/Rock and Kilik/Mina. (You could even add Edgemaster/Inferno if you wanted)

But then again, Hwang has always had the core of 3AA, 2K, 1B and 66KK as his core and has always been competitive. (High Tier, Top Tier and Mid Tier in Soul Edge, Soulcalibur 1 and Soulcalibur 3 Arcade Edition respectively) As long as he has that core, he will always be competitive, much like Mitsurugi with that fucking 2KB mixup reset for so many games. Hwang had great throw range and throws in Soulcalibur 1 and SCCs in Soulcalibur 1 and Soulcalibur 3 console version, which gave him great mixup and mindgame potential.

Hwang with a mix of his Soulcalibur 1 and SC3 AE moveset should do fine and for his Soul Charge game, obviously the SCCs that he originally brought.

And Hwang has ALWAYS been better competitively than Yunsung.

I think the last 2 characters of the SP2 are Setsuka and Yun-Seong.

Really hope we'll get also news of the 3rd DLC character at EVO Japan.

Even if we do, and they announce Setsuka, I'm not really going to be all that hype/excited. That all lies with the fourth, the real mystery.

Not that I've got anything against her, it's just like yayyy Setsuka, who has been predicted / practically known for at least a year, zero shock / surprise.

Well, that depends if the moves make it in and don’t suffer any drastic nerfs or negative effects during the transition to SC6 (if he’s in S2). After all, this character has been absent for a decade as playable among the roster and could end up receiving a rework (much like Rock or Li Long).

I'm more worried about CaS D. The last one was bad, lots of stickers, a costume that should be free, an new outfit that looks like a Yoshimitsu reject costume and 6 accessories that should be in the game.
I think in those few years that I'm here I already mentioned what I wanted, what I think or what would be good or fair as DLC, so I give up talking about the possible DLC characters from Season 2.

I just noticed this, color 2 for Setsuka, αPatroklos? No, this bastard will never take the place of my Setsuka again even as a color! LOL Change it with her SC4 1p.

I would argue it’s possible / likely. Sophitia has a Pyrrha Omega recolor and Cassandra’s hair looks a LOT like Pyrrha’s hair when broken. Amy has a Viola recolor Azwel. Patroklos has suspiciously been absent of references.

You're right, but we will see! BTW Rock, Natsu, Xiba, Leixia, Algol and ZWEI haven't got a reference by a character in the game.. For example: Rock-Astaroth, Natsu-Taki, Xiba-Kilik, Leixia-Xianghua, Algol-Azwel, ZWEI-Groh.
