This sort of thing should kind of be expected from the boss character of a game. Dont they need something to distinguish them from the rest of the cast?

He's less magical than Azwel in that most of the things he creates are still physically swung in melee rather than everything levitated.

2B definitely strikes me as a boss type if she weren't a guest i'd say she definitely fit as a boss or secret character.

Rock getting in rather than Algol doesnt piss me off. Its both Yun and Hwang that bothers me. I'd like for PS to make a decision between the two of them, not both. I'm still holding out some hope that "star" is Algol but that might be a long shot. Oh and of course Li Long would also be very annoying.

Not interested in digging up those pointless arguments consisting of "but they can easily change these characters to make them different". Or "Hwang and Yun fight very differently". I dont care. Several duplicated weapons will still be very disappointing.
It's quite possible to have both Yun-Seong and Hwang by giving them a different weapon. I kind of envision Yun-Seong with a "Korean Sword" which looks closer to a one handed Katana than a Dao and he could also take in a few moves from The Apprentice from SoulCalibur IV to further differentiate him.

Li Long could also be made to be more different by being given a three-section staff, which is what they called his weapon in the European version of Soul Blade as a way to censor Nunchucks. The actual weapon is completely different from a Nunchuck.

Maybe I'm the crazy one, but Algol seems relatively more or less on the same level as Azwel.
I'm not a big fan of Azwel's moveset either. I would much rather see more grounded weapons like a three-section staff, flail, javelin & shield, hook swords, dagger, and more.
However, the biggest difference between Azwel and Algol appears to be that Azwel has a personality that can easily be made into a meme while Algol is too bland. Also, unlike the other meme character Dampierre, Azwel's design is actually good and fits well with the rest of the cast.

Azwel and Algol are great as two extremes to their spectrum. Like Abyss and Elysium. Algol may be all the world will tremble at my feet, yet he is still a loving man and father. He is a formidable warrior, he doesn't really fight dishonorably. Even though he is an "Evil" boss he is more like an Anti-Hero. There really are no Heroes and Villains in war because one side will always suffer at the others behalf. Azwel on the other hand is like the crazy magician/alchemist person. Who is dishonorable and manipulates others. Even though he has some attacks that he comes straight at you, most of them are ethereal. They will always play off each other wonderfully.

No, that is not why a lot of people are opposed to him. They dont like him because of how he is. Its somewhat annoying at most that he isnt CASable. You've been on and on about this as if CAS is the most important aspect of the game. Even to extreme degrees when it isnt nearly as important as you suggest. In any case there was an improvement from 4 to 5 in that regard so saying "he isnt CASable" is premature if we're talking his hypothetical inclusion for this game.
If Algol does make a return I’m sure he’ll be just as meter heavy as he was in SCV.

I hope Yell, Yellow and Snow receive their signature stages.
I hope the missing stages are destructible and transitioning. Ivy's mansion would be more enjoyable if you can knock someone down the stairs out of her laboratory into the main hall.

For a game created by Japanese developers featuring Samurais and Ninjas taking place during the Sengoku Era of Japan, I am genuinely surprised that SoulCalibur VI does not have a Japan stage. If SNOW is who I think it is, I'm hoping that the stage she comes with is either Jyurakudai Villa or Kaminoi Castle.

SNOW = Setsuka. But is there anyone else it could possibly go to?

STONE = Rock. But some people are convinced Rock won't be coming back. Some say it could be for a guest....

REPTILE = I can only think of you know who. But will it be AEON (SCV) or LIZARDMAN (SCIV)?

YELLOW = For some reason people are convinced this is Hwang due to translating this word in korean? Some say it's Dampierre.

STAR = Now...some will say the translation thing means this is Yun Seong. Others will say Algol. Some will say Viola! What do you think?

YELL = Now this is contentious. Who the hell is it? Hilde is speculated but yell doesn't fit her. Some think it could be none other than Li Long. Honestly I have no idea who it could be.

It seems impossible that they would put both Yun Seong and Hwang in the same season pass

Alright, time to guess how long it takes for Project Soul to release Amy. Let's see, on one hand, it's tempting to say "roughly 2 months", like 2B, but, on the other hand, 2B came with a new stage, while Amy doesn't, although she does have something that 2B lacks: a Soul Chronicle episode.

My bet is on two months. One month and three weeks in the best case scenario.

Well, that CAS pack is definitely not looking great. Disappointing regardless of how i judge it. Either considering the lack of new pieces or if the returning ones are useful.

Yeah I'm not too happy with it either. I see more I'll find useful in Amy's CaS pieces to be honest.

Dammit, I was hoping the pirate jacket was separate from that stupid bra. Oh well. At least the skirt is usable.
My thoughts exactly. Jacket is amazing but those bras are damn stupid most of the time. It's pretty strange considering the fact that making it a two-part shouldn't be in any way difficult task and they would end up with two instead of one.

Anyone else find it a bit odd that Rock's helmet is on here? I dont get the impression anyone particularly wanted that even among Rock fans and if they are in fact bringing him back for season 2, i dont see much of a reason to include that now. It would make sense to include that for people to make Rock CAS off Astaroth if they weren't planning to add him but otherwise... i dont know, that seems weird.

I noticed, but they can bring him back with any animal, maybe even a new one! I don’t think it means much, maybe just a peace offering for the time being. Should have given Aeon similar treatment, if you ask me.
