Splatoon

I saw no thread for this, and atleast a couple of people play, so I figure a thread for this game would be nice. I guess anyone who is paying attention to the game can announce when there's an event is about to go on, or when there's new weapon. I will if I'm paying attention to the game when there's an update.

The Splatfest kind of surprised me. I knew Pearl wasn't popular, but I didn't think it would have been that lopsided towards Ketchup. I saw mostly weird Pearl art in the lobby for mayo supporters. I even had quite a few Mayo vs Mayo matches the night the Splatfest started. I guess hating Pearl is going to be a meme. I loved the Splatfest. The atmosphere was wonderful.

There ya go! Arranging League Battle teams can be a thing as well as well, but I guess messenger can be better for that.

After all this time, I still haven't figured it out... Am I a kid? Or a squid?

All of my this. Shifty Station was literal hell due to none of my teammates understanding what was going on.

I don't recall having any matches where I had bad teammates. Admittedly most of my Splatfest matches were pretty easy.

I need to improve on Salmon run. In Profreshional, I lose most of my matches. There has to be some way to deal with multiple Flyfish and Stingers on different sides of the map...right?

I failed to mention the best thing about Splatoon, and that is playing dress-up with your adorable Inkling!

Deo, I will adderate you. I be J'Wiz.

I didn't have that bad a time during that splatfest but I'm also a veteran so I don't think I count.

SW132051621746 add me too

The umbrella is out. It's just out and I'm already getting people awkwardly trying to use it in Rainmaker.

I can't get the hang of the brella for the life of me.

I learned something that might be helpful if you start an alt character for learning how to use a new weapon. It might be a good idea to take it easy on your first few matches. I mean, it was amusing how me and some other level 1 guy with basic equipment dominated a match full of level 10-20 people, but I think they punished me for it. The next few matches were against lv 30-40 people with fully decked out equipment. I did not have a good time.

Salmon Run was an interesting experience from scratch. I started off thinking "Salmon Run used to be easy?!". I'm glad it was, because my teammates were dead fodder. I don't like talking poorly of my allies, but I had some doozies. One guy just shot at the wall and then kept jumping in the water (probably a troll or something). Others would use their special against a smallfry. One ran away from me while I tried to resurrect him with a roller. Steelheads when I had a brush was a nightmare.

Someone apparently data-mined the game and found some possible future content. I don't know how true this is, but I can mention some of the things I remember. (Incase you don't want to be spoiled)
Spoiler: show
One mentioned a weapon that acts like a revolver. I like this, because I main revolvers in some shooters.

There's some new stages for Salmon run, and the mall stage from the first game.

The thing people are losing their shit about is the male and female Octoling file. Some are speculating that you can make an Octoling main character, and others are thinking that it'll be part of a Splatfest. I don't really care all that much, since I really like Inklings.


Also what's with people not bothering inking their base and just rushing to the middle? I always thought that was a bad strategy. If you ink your base first, you can build up your special for the fight in the center of the stage. Also if you rush the enemy base and ink it, the enemy will just immediately kill you and re-ink it. Am I completely wrong?

okay, so my friend code is
SW-4218-7462-3322
Added Rotom.

Please tell me when you've added me so I don't take forever to accept your friend request. :3

But I'm ready to try out the brella, especially since I had already done all the Brella missions in the single-player.

So we have the subject for the new Splatfest. It still hasn't been announced in-game, but Nintendo gave out the details of it. The subject for the Splatfest is: (I guess spoiler if you want to wait for Pearl and Marina's banter to find out, but the Miiverse images spoil it anyway)
Spoiler: show
It's a superpower thing. Flight versus Invisibility. I'm guessing Pearl is flight, considering the interest she has shown in flight several times during the opening show. It's essentially being able to travel efficiently vs being able to steal efficiently. I don't have a strong preference, but I'll probably choose flight.


So there ya go. If you want to build up teams for the team portion, go for it. You won't have to worry about bad allies if you do that.

The Splatfest will apparently take place September 1-2.

I found this artist who does some really good Splatoon comics. Most of them are about Callie and Marie. Some notable ones are: 1, 2, 3
