Basics
You will find various bits of information that a lot of people who are new to this game might ask.


1) What is Bleach?

Bleach is a manga created by the writer Tite Kubo. Bleach follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki and his companions as they face many difficult challenges. More information can be found on Wikipedia.

2) I don't understand the game.

Please check the basics section in the game manual to learn how to play.

3) Where is Character XXX that's currently in the manga?

Because Soul-Arena is heavily reliant on the anime to produce the images for the skills, and since the majority of the people playing the game are of United States residency (which isn’t as far as the manga or the Japanese version), it will only include characters that are presently in the anime.

4) Will you be adding any filler characters to the line up?

There is no need for filler characters, so the short and final answer is no.


In-Game
In the following you will be able to find various things that members wonder about while they're in-game

5) I was in the middle of a fight and a message said "You win" even though I didn't defeat the other guy.

There are two possibilities, one is that the other player surrendered for whatever reason, or they disconnected due to some sort of problem with their internet connection.

6) Can you turn off those sounds?

Of course, you can find the mute button In-Game in the top right hand corner in the Character Screen or the lower left corner in the Battle Screen.

7) Did the game glitch? What happened?

If something happened that you are 100% sure could not happen otherwise, it was probably a glitch. You can get more information on glitches and report new ones here

8) The game won't load. What's wrong?

There is either a problem with your connection that is causing lag or the server is currently down. Delete your cookies to reduce lag. If that doesn't work, try logging out and then back in. In the case that the server is down, be patient and it should be back up shortly.

9) At the end of the round, a menu comes up regarding Reiatsu. What is this?

If a player uses a skill requiring "random reiatsu" (black) during a round, this menu will appear. The purpose of the menu is to offer an overview of your current reiatsu pool, from which you can draw a substitute for the "random" reiatsu. Please note, this menu is in no sense related to the reiatsu you will gain next round. Please read the game manual on how to play.

10) How do I unlock the other characters?

Characters are unlocked by completing Shinigami assignments. To do an assignment, you usually have to defeat specific characters or win several times in a row while having the required character in your team. The assignments can be found here.

11) What are the Ryoka and Shinigami?

Please check here.

12) Do private battles count towards assignment requirements?

Private battles have no effect on your ladder ranks or your mission, private battle are meant so that you are able to battle your friends or opponents of your choice you want, when you want. The reason why it is not part of the requirement is because people will be tempted to use it to unlock characters.

13) When I go to sleep and come back I drop in ladder rank. Why?

You are one of the many people that want to move up in the ladder. While you were sleeping, people continued to play and passed you on the ladder, which would obviously make yourself drop.

14) I was facing a Shinigami and he was using the Bankai Characters. Was he cheating?

No, he wasn't cheating. He reset his account so that he could work on getting a good record or so he could find a character he needed for a mission.

15) I can’t see some of the character’s skills, is this a joke or something?

No, the skills for new characters will not be shown until a Soul-Arena player has unlock them, so that means, until someone unlocks them, no one will be able to see them for that specific character.

16) How do I know I'm close to going to the next level?

If you look at your profile, there is an experience bar, and the more that bar is yellow/gold, the closer you are, so your goal is to fill that bar with yellow/gold without using urine.

17) I'm level 31, but I'm facing a level 10 player, is this a glitch?

The match up system puts you against the closest person in rank to you that was searching at that time, if you're facing someone that is 10 lvls or 20 lvls below or above you, it just means that player was the closest person to you that was searching at that time.


Account
The following are various questions that members ask about regarding their accounts.

18) What happens when you reset your account?

This is answered on the reset account page itself.

19) I don't like my name. Can I change it?

You will never be allowed to change your name, so if you really hate your name, you best change it before you get too into the game. It was stated during your registration that your name could not be changed.

20) Can I delete my account?

Currently, there is no way for you to delete your account. Sorry.

21) How does the match-up system work?

Every 60 seconds, match-ups are made. The players closest to each other on the ladder will play each other.

22) The admins don't appear to be doing anything. What the @#$% is going on?!

First off, the game is offered to all you Bleach fans for free. We admins have already spent a lot of time trying to get the game working as it does right now and we intend to keep this up by working on it as much as we can in our own free time. Even when it does appear to you the staff is slacking off, please do respect our effort and time put into it up to this point.

23) My avatar isn’t changing, what the hell is going on?

Avatars take some time to refresh, but you can speed up the process by following these steps.

1. Go to your profile.
2. Right click your avatar > View Image.
3. Refresh.

If after you do this it doesn’t change then you have to wait a little bit longer, but be sure your avatar matches the requirements.

24) My Private Message counter isn’t resetting and I read all of my PM’s already.

This was done on purpose because if it was all real time then the server would explode and we wouldn’t be able to play, so yeah, it’s not a glitch, it was done to reduce the load on the server.

25) I was hacked! #@%)*#)(!!! WHAT DO I DO!()*)I(_)O

Well first off, I'd like to tell you that it's not called getting hacked, it's called getting scammed. That's done by giving out your password, which is pretty stupid. So, the first step is to accept that you're an idiot. The second step is to contact a moderator/global moderator/administrator with VALID proof that the account is indeed yours. You need a reliable source, like a screenshot of the mail you get when your email is changed. Stuff like Xat convo's aren't counted proof so please don't waste our time with it, provide us with legitimate proof that the account is yours, and we will get it back for you in our free time, if you don't have it, too bad, the idiot in you has cost you your account.

26) My name was stolen! What do I do?

Well, originally, we had an application on Naruto-Arena that would reserve your name, if you did not reserve it, you are out of luck and so will have to create a new name.


Soul-Boards
The following will answer various questions concerning the Soul-Boards.

27) I can’t access the Soul-Boards, #&$)(@*$# is happening?

Well there are multiple possibilities, the most common is that you have been banned, if you don’t know, contact a moderator and he/she will be able to help you out.

28) My forum post count doesn't increase! Double U Tee Efff!

Some sections don't count towards your post count, you can find the details to those sections in the Forum Guide. Also, it takes time for post counts to show up, we're not freaking speed Flashes you know.

29) I want to help make the game better! Can I join the staff?

We aren't seeking to get any moderators at this time. Your best bet is to always act respectably and obey the rules and you might eventually get chosen. However, asking to become a moderator will ruin your chances forever.
