    Hi. I'm new to splatoon 2 as I never got the chance to play splatoon 1. I really enjoy the game but sometimes find it stressful, keep getting killed :(
    My name is Clare and I hope to make some good friends here :)
    Thank you for allowing me to join :)

    Welcome to squidboards, Clare! If you have any questions, just ask!

    I find it easier to just relax when i play, talking with others helps too. I actually use the game to let off stress. Let it be a source of stress, try to not get worked up over being killed a lot, you’ll get better in time~

    I’m just trying to help them not get overly stressed over a game that is supposed to be fun, what you said is true or false depening on the person x)
    I’ve been around plenty that enjoy the game and just laugh out being killed

    Okay, listen, if you don’t like what I have to say then just ignore it please, because just like some get pissed off over dying a lot, there really are some of us that find the fun in every little thing Including Dying A Lot because, yes it is fun to be around others and just enjoy the game for what it is, so again, if you don’t like what I have to say, please just stop and turn the other way, thanks.

    Exemple of fun dying moment;
    -Shooting the rainmaker and getting pushed offstage.
    -Climbing a wall in salmon run only to have a salmonoid whack you into the water.
    -Rolling off stage with the dualies.
    -Missing a jump from a moving element of the map and falling in the abyss or missing a jump.
    -Dying only to see the person who killed you die as well.
    -Dying and having a teampals booyah your death.

    It's a game, it's meant to not be taken seriously. If you lose, laugh it off and say ''i probably want too much on that specific side of that map'' and learn to avoid doing repetitive actions. //Shrug/ Some time being in VC with someone and having them rage with you about dying can help see death as something to laugh at.

    None of those are fun, they're embarrassing.

    Welcome to Squidboards, you're still new, so long you have fun you should improve! If you get killed often, it might be because you do certain action repetitively. Such as rushing in, using the same path on the map too often, etc. So if you can spot those kind of repetitive behavior, you can start countering them and be less predictable! If you feel yourself getting stressed, try to goof and mess around in turf war to let out some steam, you might die, but in silly ways!

    Plus, dying in the game can't be avoided per say, so don't stress yourself with constant death, in due time you'll die less and less.

    Man, I'm sick of these perky players that think they can just say "gg lol!" to the losers and everything will be fine. If anything, saying gg is the biggest slap to the face ever. You can try all you want to laugh off your fails, but it won't work.

    You should follow what your pfp say. ''Deal with it.''
    If you fail, then get good. If you only think about winning, you will fail to see what you need improve, if you're so terrible that you keep on losing, good for you. We do not give a damn about your sorry faillure at playing a game, but all Kiba said was to not take the game seriously since the person whom's thread you're turning into some kind of negative place feel stressed from dying a lot in the game.

    So honestly, if you got a problem, good for you. But at this point you're just trying to harvest some pity party. What do you want? For good players to dot on you or something? Why don,t you go rant in a thread for ranting about how bad you are at the game instead? We just wanted to let the new squid know that it's okay to die a lot and that they'll get better in time, they're still new and they should give themselves some time. Dunno why you felt the need to butt in.

    Well, I see my plan worked. Yeah, uh...I was messing with you guys. I wanted to see how people react to negativity on this site, I saw this thread and thought it was my chance. So now I know people don't really care about the haters here on Squidboards and that's great. Sorry if I angered you.

    Welcomez!~

    Like Kiba already noted, don't sweat dying a lot too much. While it can certainly get under your skin if this keeps happening a lot at certain times of the day (and it's the norm for ranked modes), we all started somewhere and you'll improve soon enough if you keep playing with plenty fun in mind. ;3

    While I'm aware you were just messing with us, here's an example on how dying can still feel oddly satisfying and hilarious at the same time:
    It's exactly how not to use the weapon but there's days where I just mess around and push my luck. :D

    If you get easily tilted, then it's a good thing you didn't play sploon1. Especially with the kraken mains and squid girl cultists.

    Oh! Chargers are so fun! If you ever need any advice from an extremely mediocre Hero Charger main, you can ask me~ I find using a charger harder to do in Splatoon 2, but still possible!

    Offering the same. Been maining the weapon class since S1 and I still main them in S2, so if you need specific advice and quick tips, feel free to ask me via DM as well. I'm always glad to give a hand.

    Can I add you both on the switch? Maybe you both can teach me for using chargers :) I hope that's ok as I'm not doing very well with the chargers

    Sure thing. I may not be available 24/7 because I've got a full college schedule during the week but I can try to squeeze you in in the evening hours when I get the chance. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss schedules and such. o/

    I HIGHLY recommend joining some Splatoon Discord groups! They're the best imo, to get into communities now. Squidboard has one which you can easily join by clicking the link for it on the front page. I'm also in charge of one called TSP if you wanna join it as well. Just click the link to it in my signature! If you need any help working Discord, feel free to message me! I had trouble with it as first as well. Made two accounts by mistake, but I'm so glad I figured out to use it because I have met some amazing people through it. :p

    This thread sure is popular for one in the welcome center. I guess that IS partly because of my dumb prank.
