Why is Nagoriyuki attacking the White House and how did you know he and Sol were going to fight in Strive? What is Nagoriyuki's beef with him when Sol is the good guy?
Lol you act like I have all the answers. I do the speculation, not the lore facts of GG. 
Take the trailer with a grain of salt and do not assume without knowing the information. Nagoriyuki isn’t the type of guy who would just do things out of malicious intent, he seems too reasonable. 
My guess is that it looks like he’s searching for someone in the White House. The two likely targets that come to mind is either Sol or I-No. Perhaps there is someone in the G4 summit we don’t know about that is a potential threat to the government and its officials.
As for my prediction, dude...it is obvious. Ever since Nagoriyuki appeared in the Strive teaser, something told me that this guy wasn’t no mere samurai. He looks insanely strong, dangerous, and intimidating. Secondly, you notice how in his reveal trailer, Nagoriyuki is fighting Sol, Ky, Chipp, etc? I doubt it is done for no reason, it looks like foreshadowing if you ask me. As a vampire, I knew that this guy could give Sol a run for his money. It is unknown how strong he is, I don’t think he is as strong as Slayer...or at least as experienced, but he may be more skilled and refined than Sol in terms of fighting style. 
I wouldn’t label Guilty Gear characters as ‘good’ or ‘evil’ because these characters are very complex in their personalities and ideologies. 
Yes, Sol may have saved mankind, but you need to remember, Sol is an extremely dangerous man to deal with. Nagoriyuki probably considers Sol as a monster because of his brutal approach in battle or he likely somehow knows about Sol’s Seed and how it could potentially turn him into a literal monster, destroying everything in his path indiscriminately. 
OR....Sol might’ve done something that Nagoriyuki doesn’t approve of. I’m sure Nagoriyuki has his reasons for showing hostility toward Sol. 
But as I’ve said in my other posts, take what I say with a grain of salt. I’m just speculating.

According to the Dub, Ramlethal seems to be simping for Leo Whitefang or in love with him.
Dub doesn’t always translate things correctly and I think there is a mistranslation. First of all, we are not in the story mode YET! We can’t assume, I would take any taunts or respect quotes with a grain of salt. Secondly, it’s strongly implied that Ramlethal is working for the military and may be under Leo Whitefang.
- She is treating him as a role model or in a funnier terminology ‘Senpai’, thus her so cools are all about his status and probably his hot-blooded attitude.
- Her short pause during listing of men she cares about is more about getting use to calling Sol "Father" (family tree no different than a preschooler toy room) 
 - The joke here is that he says "Someone who makes it hard for her to sleep". Leo is her boss now, and he is very strict, thus precise scheduling. That is all.
I love how people are so quick to start doing ship pairings when there is no strong hardcore evidence of chemistry or likely romantic feelings. 
My little girl isn’t a simp, she’s a growing girl! How dare you?! XD

GGST Story Trailer Analysis
---Tome of Origin > Sage's Testament (Localization change from Xrd)
---"Everything sprang forth from its pages/makes anything possible" (the secret of the Backyard) It crafted our future but also the risk of our downfall. (Makes sense, given the Gears/Universal Will).
---U.S. sends a "summons letter" for Sol Badguy... (this is either to help explain the situation with the Gearmaker, or some OTHER reason that is not mentioned... possibly they want to use Sol for something).
---Holding G4 despite the presence of the Gear Maker (even somehow connecting the Gear Maker with the G4 summit: How will the Gear Maker respond if the G4 summit is cancelled?)
---(Former Assassins/Neo-PWAB): tasked with checking the security system for G4 and White House's architecture for any blind spots (this is compromised later in the trailer by Nagoriyuki, lol)
---Zato mentions a jack-in-the-box... (a possibly very deadly box)
---American Military Guy asks if "That Man" is somehow two different people.... (they might be talking about the Japan village incident)
---Official mentions I-No being a "2nd secret santa" (meaning there are two infiltrators at the White House).
---Asuka's final venture as a scientist... a "world peace experiment".... (uh-oh)
---Sol confirmed clashing with Nagoriyuki at the White House (along with Giovanna).
---America is launching weapons against Illyria.... (accidental nukes? or deliberate?) Possibly something connected with Zato's "box" mentioned earlier.
---Aria asks I-No what her "wish" is...
---I-No wants to "kill this world and birth a new universe" (reset the timeline?) This is also what Bedman tried to do with the Absolute World.
---Ky observing "the work of a god"... (though he seems upset, so it's probably related to Asuka/I-No)
---Axl is observing a bomb "mid explosion" (this is BAD chief!) (I don't know if he can time travel, but he can slowly observe events taking place). It sounds like the bomb went off, or a missile landed in Illyria.
---Asuka says he's "averted his eyes for too long", says he needs to "erase" the Tome of Origin and Sol Badguy.
---Sol says he'll settle things with "him" in due time.... (meaning Sol has other stuff to do besides worry about Asuka).
---Aria says she "just discovered something"...
---Sol talking with someone (Aria) about a "short vacation", despite it being his LONGEST vacation, lol (It's probably about his short trip to America...)

I’ll be frank, it seems my prediction of Sol and Nagoriyuki fighting each other is coming to fruition. 
Aria though....for a moment there, I thought she was Happy Chaos lol
I-No is making me extremely nervous. XD like...I feel like she is going to cause more damage than even what the Universal Will and Justice were capable of.

They didn't show Ramlethal in the story trailer :(
I mean....they didn’t show other characters like May, Potemkin, Faust, etc.
They probably didn’t show Ramlethal because they might give out too much spoilers on her situation. 
Honestly, I was more hyped in seeing Nagoriyuki kicking ass in the trailer. He looks so cool!

Hello, I hope you are doing good in life. I have three questions: 1- Is it known why Kliff, being just a human, is so strong besides him being capable of controling ki? 2- Who do you think the person talking at the end of the GGST story trailer is? Slayer perhaps? 3- Why do Raven and Jack-o mention several times the number "42"? I've always thought it is a reference to the book "The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy" but I don't know anything about anything. Sorry possible bad redaction/grammar.
You’re asking the wrong person. 
I am not the lore expert of Guilty Gear, I am merely a fan who loves to speculate the story. 
I’d love to, but sorry, man.

Faust’s Dub Voice
Honestly, in my opinion, Faust’s dub voice is pretty good. He sounds creepier than his Japanese voice due to the low pitched tone of his voice. It’s something about his voice being deep that sounds unsettling. 
The good thing is that Faust is still the compassionate doctor. However, in this one, you can tell that the man is struggling to speak properly, like it takes a lot of energy to form words.

My gameplay of the second beta as Ramlethal again.
Yes it is in English Dub. Her voice is cute and sounds more mature, not bad. 
Also, I-No is a bit of a nightmare to handle, but then again...I am still not used to Ram’s new fighting style.

So by holding buttons down during certain special moves, Anji can evade certain attacks. This is a bit different from his Auto-guard frames in previous incarnations.
Still I hope he does have a few advantages to his normal attacks (and also that funky angular high jump of his as well).
I'll find out more once I try the beta I suppose.
