I don't understand this rule at all.

It says "every unit in each detachment", does it mean each detachment needs a Keyword his own, or it means that all detachments needs the same keyword, for example:

- Astra Militarum Batallion
- Space Marines Black Templars Batallion
- Grey Knights Batallion

That would be OK? Each detachment has his own Keyword, Astra Militarum, Adeptus Astartes... I hear people talk about soup nerf, but i don't get to understand what's the actual meaning of soup.

I would be gratfeul if you explain it to me, thank you btw ^^

It means each detachment must now have a keyword that isn't on the list to count as battleforged.

For example, you can pick ADEPTUS ASTARTES as your common keyword for a Battalion detachment, but can't pick IMPERIUM. That means the detachment must have all ADEPTUS ASTARTES units.

The additional restriction that all detachments must have a common keyword is not affected by Battle Brothers. So you can have a detachment of ADEPTUS ASTARTES, a detachment of ASTRA MILITARUM and a detachment of GREY KNIGHTS in an IMPERIUM army just fine. What you can't do anymore is put ASTRA MILITARUM in the same detachment as ADEPTUS ASTARTES.
