Soul Calibur thread
 
I always wondered why there was never any SC thread. Its been a year and a half since SC6 so I'm not gonna name this a SC announcement thread.
I usually main Ivy and Zasalemal since the two have the most unique weapons. If there are any SC players here, who do you main? Unless its an OC in character creation

Gothlegend 19-04-19 15:35

First main ever was actually Cassandra, who I don't play too often now because she seems a little slower than what I prefer. Otherwise I'm dominate with Talim or Ivy due to speed and occasionally Rafael.

Jami393 19-04-19 19:07

Can I be pedantic for a second? Soul Calibur is the blade while Soulcalibur is the title of the franchise.

jajay119 19-04-19 19:28

I wish they would go into the links more between the SC and Tekken charscters. I'd like to know how Ivy is linked to Nina/Anna. It'd be stupid for her not to be given they essentially used to reuse Ninas model.

Catapharact 19-04-19 20:31

I usually main as Siegfried or Nightmare; Especially when I take a low guard with him. A few well placed hits usually drains a person to oblivion or sends them flying for a ring out.

Either that or I become a complete troll on people and use Maxi :p. Ah the sweet sweet sound of people cursing my name after they try in vain to defend against Maxi's combos...

Other than Taki, Maxi is the best rush-down character

My fav fighting game series.

If the rumours are true, which it seems very likely to be, then Cassandra is the next DLC character. If that'll happen then apart from Ivy, my fav characters will be DLC (2B aside) which is kind of annoying. I wanted to wait for a sale on the season pass but decided not to because of that :/

They changed Amy a lot in this, I actually liked her in SC4 better.

You spend many of your seconds on here being pedantic. A change of pace would be nice. :pi:

I did it once before and you're not letting it go even though it was still right.

I'm waiting for her to be next on DLC but it looks like Cassandra is next. I'm suprised I didn't main her when I was younger because she seems right up my ally in terms of character taste. She is very lady-like and feminine yet tough without being a femme-fatale. I guess I was too married to Ivy lol

Grenade 22-04-19 18:49

If we get a second season pass *fingers crossed* we should get her and hopefully Hilde.

I really missed Setsuka in SC5.

Yeah apart from the spelling of the title. :pi: Joking of course.

Catapharact 05-05-19 14:50

Finally decided to give the character creation option in SC6 a try and I have to say, its been a fun experience creating new character designs :D.

I wanted some of the female characters to have a more... coverage in terms of Armor but unfortunately, SC6 doesn't has many good armor options for females without them looking too goofy. So I did the best I could.

Some of my characters:

Apologies for the Double Post but given that there was already a thread on the topic, I didn't want to create another one.

A little something for all Soul Calibur Fans out there :D; A real life replica of the Zweihander Requiem; The sword of Siegfried:


Catapharact 10-08-19 13:27

Well Ladies and Gents... Cassandra finally makes her Entrance:



She is a DLC Downloadable character but she comes free if you already have your season 1 Soul Calibur 6 pass active. Just got her yesterday and me and my Niece have been putting her through her paces.

She is a VERY strong close in fighter. Unlike the heavy hitting Astraroth, she is very fast and Nimble, all the while having hard hitting moves. She can also throw her Shield for Medium range Damage as well.

My Niece has figured out that she is perfect counter to Nightmare if she can get Cassandra close enough :p. So she has been putting me on my toes Lol!

It has also been announced that Soul Calibur 6 will be getting a Season 2 DLC. No word yet as to when that will release:


Grenade 11-08-19 02:52

She looks great! I missed her a lot. :o Her look is somewhat inspired by SC2 (and I appreciate the recolour they gave her to as well!), she even has her old sword back. But her SC4 outfit is selectable in CAS...

Yeah they changed her quite a bit moveset wise, she had a few Captain America moves. She is still a rushdown character and plays mostly like SC4 but they have added new gimmicks just like Amy and her Rose Perception mechanic. Cassandra has Divine Force where she has lightning around her sword and shield, she can do a lot more damage and even with her Critical Edge. I need to play her a bit more. Her Soul Chronicle was very shocking by the way, I won't go into details but I loved the twist they gave us.

Happy to hear we're getting a second season pass. The game needs all the support it can get and I was rather worried with the radio silence that we weren't getting more updates. The last thing we need is this game dying quickly like SC5 and potentially not get a sequel. I think we'll see the first DLC for it near the end of the year. Looks like they're making it possible to block reversal edge, THANK GOD!

Fingers crossed Setsuka and Hilde makes it in. I'm sure the former will be included but I don't know about Hilde sadly :( I would rather lose the guest character in favour of more legacy characters. But I do like the new Samurai Shodown game and Haohmaru is cool, although I would rather they have gone for another character because he is too much like Mitsurugi. Nakoruru would have been the better choice imo...

We need more stages in this game too and NOT just variants of existing stages. I'm so disappointed we didn't get any with the first season pass!

Grenade 03-11-19 17:32

Hilde will be the first character for Season 2! No release date yet.



Also every character will be getting new moves:



Surprised to see Hilde coming back, wasn't so sure if she would make it but I'm SO happy :) Her redesign is great and she looks like royalty! :D

SC6 will also be at Evo Japan in January so I'm sure the next character will be shown there, which will probably be Haohmaru from Samurai Shodown. I'm feeling more confident that we will be getting Setsuka and Yunseong afterwards, not sure which order they will be released. When Season 1 was datamined Cassandra was listed before Amy, but she ended up being released after so who knows.

Grenade 20-11-19 22:26



Lots of new stuff highlighted in this new trailer. Season 2 will come on the 25th of November, Hilde will be released on the 26th of November. Her SCIV 1P is coming for free as CAS parts. Every character is getting a lot more new moves than we thought. We're getting a new UI!!! Also more stages are coming, one new stage is that daytime version of the forest that was shown before, another is a boring endless training stage and 4 more afterwards. I think some of them will be variants of existing stages. Also some new CAS parts, but honestly a lot of them look pretty lame...

Thank god for the stages! SoulCalibur VI is extremely lacking in this aspect, and since it's a reboot it's a shame that so many classic stages were left out...

Well the new DLC will be releasing here in Canada on November 26, 2019. Looking forward to it. Its interesting that they chose to bring Hilde back when there were more calls by the fans to have Setsuka back. I remember there was a lot of backlash against Hilde by the fans with her being too unbalanced in Soul Calibur 4. I personally didn't see the issue; If anything, Ivy is a hell of a lot more unbalanced compared to Hilde.

I am loving her new look. She is adequately armored but still open for movement.

Setsuka and either of the Korean guys are probably coming right after Haohmaru so maybe it's a "best for last" kind of thing? Lol.

I'm pleasantly surprised by Hilde's redesign.

I like her new face and hair!

The boob-shaped Armor is ridiculous though 😂😅

Meh, we will chalk that up to fantasy and aesthetics :p. I mean, considering that this is Namco, we should be happy that they didn't take the opportunity to go full bikini armor :p.

I still have nightmares after the DLC outfits for that free to play game...I can't even remember it's name anymore 😂

Catapharact 26-11-19 22:46

Downloaded the Season 2 version of the game, the Character Creation and Hilde DLCs today and I am somewhat satisfied with what Namco has given us.

Lets start with Hilde and the new added moves for various characters:

- Hilde had the potential for becoming as broken as she was in Soul Calibur 4 had it not been the addition of new moves for another Soul Calibur 6 character (who I'll get to momentarily.) She has excellent Mid to Short-ranged attacks and very devastating long ranged heavy attacks. If timed right, you can easily win a fight with four heavy attack moves. The downside to Hilde is that she has a slow recovery time between moves; Almost on par with Nightmare. New players can be easily taken off-guard but for the veterans (especially those who main as Nightmare,) you can easily lul someone into believing that they have an opening for an attack and then you can counter with heavy hitting moves.

Moving onto new character moves:

- With the addition of new moves, Groh has become even more formidable; To the point where he could easily be OP. His Steed of the Night Powerup has gotten additional moves, making him just as flightly as Cervantes without the lag, which makes him more dangerous. The upside is the fact that Steed of the Night can only be used during Soul Charge. However, given that this is Groh, that won't be an issue at all.

Finally we come the new Character Creation DLC:

- Kind of a downer that we only have four new set of costume ensembles and two of them belong to Hilde. That only leaves two costume sets for male characters. Seems kinda imbalanced but I am sure this will all change once new DLCs with male characters arrive. On an important note, we FINALLY have proper armor for female characters! God damn, this has been a long way coming. Hilde's Armor is so versatile that it can easily be incorporated into a lot of clothing sets, which is very much appreciated given that what was available, your female characters looked either really clunky, drab, boring but reasonably functional as a fighter or they looked really cool but also seemed like they belong at a Halloween party rather than a sword duel.

How one of my female character looks in a full classic Hilde Armor set:

https://i.postimg.cc/SxS1kkVk/SC20.jpg

Please bear in mind that I am advocating the need to change all the female characters in the game into full armor clad lancers so please refrain from commenting with a statement like "what? you want to put all female characters in burkas?" Far from it actually. Its just would be nice to see more female outfits that are a cool looking and relatively functional medium between a Burka and metal thong.

Other than that, the new layout looks amazing, the new online ranking system is very well welcomed and the new stages are wonderful addition.

P.S. Regarding Hilde's story; You will find out as to why Hilde and Siegfried never became a thing. Unfortunately... It happened due to a very uncomfortable reality of the Medieval times *cue banjo music.*
