The yellow one is an AS soul, and it's equal to one soul to limit break any gold AS character, it's actually really good to max out any other Tekken character (or any other AS character like the epic quest characters) when you don't have their souls and before using element souls. Just recently I maxed my Paul between the AS souls and his own souls (and getting a second and a third copy of the full 5* character, that's 60 souls at once per copy), and I keep rolling for more AS soul bingo for the other characters - I'm working my way through Armor King, Kazuya and Heihachi a lot faster than the measly 12 souls a day for one character in the soul quest.
The only dud on the roulette is the capsule box, but even that is nice to have because capsule are so rare to come by and there's so many characters to give them to (but I don't try to get a bingo on them if I can't get the AS souls).

Katsuhiro Harada Wants To Know If Players Still Want Tekken x Street Fighter
Somebody tell him
(My marketing view is that TK7 and SFV are selling very well, so there is no opportunity to drop TK x SF on the market).
Somebody tell Namco to fire the people in that marketing team already.
Well, seeing how he decided that SF and KoF characters in Tekken should still play like their original game and not like Tekken characters, TKxSF might still fail for reasons other than market saturation.
Uh, someone in that Twitter discussion points out that Fahkumram could be adapted from a TKxSF version of Sagat. If this is what Sagat could be, it might work out yet.

Still trying to get Paul in that freaking roulette
Have you been picking up the tickets every day and trying to get three identical rolls in a row (removing unwanted rolls and keeping the other two until you get three identical rolls) to get some extra souls with a bingo ? I used souls to limit break him to lv78 which means I rolled like 280 souls (edit - minus 50 from getting his affinity to 15 but plus 150 that I used on his battle card). It's been a couple of weeks of free tickets, there's no reason you shouldn't have very close to 200 souls to just craft him. And if you want to try paying rubies to roll him in the roulette, the secret shop also gives 10 tickets for 150 rubies every time the shop resets (I think that's twice a day), which is 100 rubies less than rolling the roulette 10 times directly with rubies.

A lot of characters have been introduced showing how they were affected by the Mishima conflict, not how they affect the story. That alone sounds like they exist for their premise / archetype / foundation, however you want to call it, not for how they can pull their weight into the future. Miguel lost his sister in a bombing raid, so he fights. Steve is a test tube baby, so he fights. Leo remembers her mother, so she fights.

You guys do realize that Tekken has reinvented movelists of existing martial arts with new characters before, right ?

If you didn't get him from the roulette, but you got enough souls from it, go to the craft menu to exchange him for those souls.
Schoolgirl Xiaoyu can only be obtained by paying money from the Tekken Shop (the one with the red spot on the left of the main screen), and the last 3 can only be obtained  in the two gachas.

NO MORE EPIC QUEST BS FOR ME YEAAAAAAAAAA
Congrats. Do we know when episode 1 will be available, with Saisyu, Yashiro, and Orochi ?
I'm working on Chizuru's card, lv35 buff but I'm still around 8 minutes.

I had zero interest in Leroy but he actually looks damn good with his moves. Fahkumram is the opposite, he looked cool for a hot second (Sagat on hyper steroids) but those overblown tattoos are a massive turn off. Leroy's tattoos don't look nearly as "oooh I'm such a criminal" edgelord. It just looks like someone wanted to go full reverse from Josie.
Ganryu just makes me want to call the cops for stalking. His outfit is okay.

So I gotta ask, what's the recommended characters that are available now that I should be trying to get and raise?
Don't want to be spending resources when there's something I can get more mileage out of.
I love Andy 98's entire gameplay concept with the bleed resist down, bleed, and the sharp attack core that deal even more bleed damage on bleeding targets, plus he's a good tank. His battle card is super lame but it's legit full screen so that's pretty good.
Mai 95 is rather popular with high offense and pretty safe and effective skills, then Mai 97 from the Starving Wolves banner is a straight upgrade of that with extra burn damage oh, other way around, Mai 95 gets 25% extra burn damage with full core unlock. But 97 gets more power per crit so more supers. 25% extra burn is really good though.
Kensou 99 is a good generic offensive character, there's Kensou 94 who's similar plus a projectile but he's defensive, I don't know how good that makes him
King 98 seems to be one of the better Kings but I don't have her, and I've seen comments that King 94 is straight up broken but I don't know
Among my first characters I really liked Takuma 98 but I left him half built a while ago so I don't know how he holds
Terry 96 seems pretty effective and standard but I left him at lv80 without pushing him because I don't really like Terry
Robert 98 seems to be the better Robert, though not very high ranked
Then there's the time limited characters, like Geese 14, Zero, the Tekken characters who are all very good. Any of them can be your top guy. Orochi Iori is very popular but I'm not too much into him.

There are nice grapplers like Armor King, Vice 98, Mary/Envy Mary, but the problem with those is that unless you're already maxed at lv90, their attacks will not complete because of the "stuck" mechanic - hitting an enemy much stronger than you will not register as a hit so none of the grab attacks will do shit (Chris also counts, his specials need to hit to continue, which is bullshit)

Yeah, the grinding was way overshot, he's a pushover once you know what to do (use a red fighter to stop the regeneration, time anything with invulnerability when he does that full screen lightning, dodge the dash grab Yamidoukoku). I can clear him in under 2'30, which is way more than enough to get the rainbow souls from the last mission... if I can make it 3 more times without the game crashing 250 times.

GOT MECHA GOENITZ. With lv ~31 buffs and maxed Xiaoyu (16k CP with a bunch of maxed 5* cards and the Benimaru Lightning Gentleman set with a Maxima cooldown for the hell of it) to deal enough damage (wiping entire bars in seconds), and a strong red fighter to break the regenerating pillars that are apparently green. ...... And dodging all the crashes by staying away from the red tornado (or instantly wiping all the swarming enemies with one super to turn off the tornado immediately). On top of playing near perfectly and timing your super invulnerability to not get OHKO by fucking everything.
What a fucking pain.
And now... The unique skill cards in the final section of the quest.

I might be interested in him (I'm also waiting for Orochi Shermie, if she's half of the horrible bitch she is to fight in the Mecha Goenitz quest). But I though there was also a datamine showing Rock ?

I'm on the slowwwwww grind for Mecha Goenitz (over lv30 buffs, still at least 10k CP too low). I maxed out my dress Xiaoyu with the AS souls, and I'm building up Wrath Chizuru because apparently the game claims Mecha Goenitz's berserk phase gives advantage to balance type fighters, even though I have no idea what advantage you actually get in those boss battles. She's not strong, but I like her.
I'm kicking my King 97 off my yellow team because god damn her skills are such a pain to chain together. The only way Tornado Kick chains into Trap Kick is if you launched the enemy up with Venom Strike first, and it's still difficult. Oh, but the fireball is still nice in pvp.
I really appreciate the way the epic quest makes you grind previous stages for those stat bonuses, at this point I'm comfortable wiping the floor with Envy Mary with a lv47 Yashiro, it's nice that it allows you to test out low level characters without the absolute need to max out everyone. On the other hand, I can't figure out how to beat Wrath Chizuru without a high level bleed user like Andy. My lv90 4* green Ryo can't do anything if she jut heals half of any direct hit I deal (it takes him over 10 minutes to kill her raid form), whereas bleed just takes out five times as much health as a normal hit. Say Ryo hits 20k, she instantly heals 9k, but Andy's bleed damage would also take out 90k at the same time on top of the normal hit. And I don't see any good 4* green unit that can do that.

I'm assuming that's for the Asian versions.

That new collab event is super generous, got a couple million gold, a hundred capsules, and 200 cores, that's a bit of progress for maybe one character.

Well I managed to max out my Zero 01, showering him with every boss souls, blue souls, and rainbow souls we got.
I also spent more money to roll grown up Xiaoyu than I could have to just buy schoolgirl Xiaoyu but I'm not into schoolgirls and I wanted that yellow character (no I don't mean her skin) for the Mecha Goenitz episode (Orochi Shermie is fucking awful with her whip that just KEEPS FUCKING GOING and her sudden kiss that catches you from several screens away and you don't see anything coming). I got like 6 hood Jin before I rolled Xiaoyu...
I bought everything in the Tekken Rush shop (Armor King, souls, card, capsules), so I'll use everything else for the gold. I also got Paul in the roulette so the souls went to his card and to limit breaking him. Now I only want Heihachi and I'll be good to go.

Slightly extended trailer, now it's new year's day. I had a feeling in the previous one, but now that we have a better view of that haircut, that's definitely Tesla there. We've never seen him in Doctor Who so far, have we ? About time.

Just a few bits of system stuff and interviews. I don't think there's anything really new, it's stuff that's already been mentioned in passing but a bit more detailed. I like the part where weapons have abilities that you can level up and learn for the character then use with other weapons.
Rude looks amazing. But what's that about the slum church housing Shinra's crashed test rockets ??

Holy shit, I got Wrath Chizuru.
soul dust exchange is the fastest way to get to lv90. Andy sits at 15k CP with a maxed special battle card, two Maxima cooldown cards, one also maxed, and the Kula set cards.
Episode buffs are still around 22.
There has to be a modifier when the enemy is at a higher level, if you're not at level 90 then your CP can be just a couple thousands off and it'll still be a massive difference (Netmarble did that in Marvel Future Fight too so I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled that scum move again). My Andy at lv85 with a CP around 13k still couldn't do shit in 5 minutes and always died. At 90, her lifebar just drained away. I think I barely needed more than a couple of minutes. The Maxima and Kula cards surely helped, but with a cooldown of a couple seconds over 2 minutes, I don't see why I can't get anywhere close to the same result in double the time without the cards. The atk/crit bonus isn't that big.
That or the debuff and self heal she spams just becomes way too hard to catch up on the longer it goes, so to end the fight fast, you have to... go faster. Gee thanks.
Anyway all of a sudden it becomes really easy, she was a 7 bars left in over a minute. It's noticeable.
(Oh yeah, Andy's 40% bleed up leadership probably helps too)

Lui, if you can't get your Goenitz above 85 and still can't get through, really try to boost up the free Mature to 90 and see how that goes. I haven't tested my Mature yet, I have her at lv84.
My top yellow for the Mecha Goenitz run is King 97, and at lv85 she can't do shit to Yashiro, she dies too fast. I'll see how that changes at 90.

I really appreciate that they display the actual CP buff given by the episode buffs. It was really weird before when you thought you had a bonus 16k but it kept telling you your Cp is shit. Now you actually now, it really helps.

On the collab, I got Shy Jin (I'm holding out for adult Xiaoyu and Geese, no luck yet), and I unlocked armor King. No Paul yet.

edit  Wrath Chizuru in 2:40 without the cooldown cards (but with a card set that gives me about 10% atk buff), and 2:10 with the cooldown. The cooldown is effective, but I'm 80% sure the lv90 thing is a big deal, that's the only notable difference with my runs yesterday when I couldn't get below 5 minutes and I was only a couple thousand CP lower.

Same here. All I have in green is Andy 98 and Kensou 99 (free Mature is slowly going up), they're great but they're both stuck at lv 80. All of Wrath Chizuru's fights put so much debuff on you, I can't even tell if I need to level up to 90 or push up my episode buff or do more bleed damage or unlock more cores or what. So I just grind everything I can - I'm even grinding the food items to raise my affinity and get the soul rewards to keep leveling them up just a bit. It's so slow.
I really like that the "clear with units less than x cost" missions force you to use lower units, even silver units. Even if you need more episode buff to stand a chance with a silver unit, it's a nice way to force you to keep leveling up silver units.

Oh, when this arena season ends I'll have enough coins to finally get Geese. It's a tough strategy to stay below rank 5000 (my top team CP is 40k). Also fuck Halloween Kula, and Orochi Iori is fucking everywhere.
