    I have a head canon that this only kills inklings in turf war, and if you have strong control over your kid form you do just fine around water. If you don't(or haven't gotten it or are currently a squid), then the water gets to the ink.
    Nintendo/Sega logic. And I'm a squid kid.

    Always a joy when you're the one that makes them take a drink.

    Not so much when they do it to you, e.g. your flying kraken taking an inkzooka-rainmaker teamup to the face while in midair then nosediving through the grates. TWICE!!

    Me too, I always laugh, and if I fall in myself and it's particularly embarrassing I throw in a "nice" in the hope that someone else enjoyed it too.

    They do attempt it. But fail - watch closely. They try to float - ya know 'stranded in the ocean floating tactics'

    Its funny when you make someone jump into the abyss/water. Its happened a few times on Arowana and Moray. On Moray it was RM and I jumped down to splat the Rainmaker but they splatted me - then jumped off the map. I did my job.

    well, that's not the only stage that I drown on, I drown on arowana mall, camp triggerfish, and Bluefin depot, mostly on tower control.

    I thought I remembered in the single player, learning that the inklings just don't know how to swim. They're not made completely of ink. I thought I remembered Capt. Cuttlefish saying that they just didn't learn how; I have watched when my poor inkling drowns that she is struggling to stay afloat but ends up ultimately drowning because she doesn't know how to swim (sounds like someone else I know). Anyway, enough of what I've been talking about with that...stages I seem to drown on are Triggerfish and Bridge (doesn't matter which mode either).
