    What is everyone's opinions on clam blitz? Personally it's not my cup of tea but, whatever floats your boat.

    Eh, I never liked/always hated how chaotic it was when it came to teamwork (if there was even teamwork in the first place), thankfully, I have already achieved S+ and I don't plan on going through hours of frustration just to get to X. The only good memory I have with this mode is being the perfect goalie in destroying the enemy team so they won't be able to open my team's basket.

    i always kinda hated it...team work must be 100% in this mode and most of the time it's really not >.<
    i am the defensive type in this mode but my team is always offensive only and i had teams where they don't even bother defending the basket so i have to do it,..and that's no fun having to go alone against 2 to 3 enemies :l
    and this mode is just soooo nerve wracking..i sometimes missed the basket with a football because i feel pressured or a enemy is nearby and i kinda need to do something quick and i just throw it cause i will die anyway
    it's a frustrating mode!!!!

    Honestly, nothing beats Splat Zones, but Clam Blitz is a close second! Sure it can be the closest thing to hell on earth in soloq especially when you're around C- to A+ rank, but in competitive play where you can communicate with your team, it's a blast! If there were one thing I'd change about it, though, it would be maybe adding something like a canon from story mode to specific spots of each map. This would allow for a back liner to have a second option for defending when the only other one is charging up a shot and taking out targets one at a time.

    Oh man, I'll play clams if it's the only ranked mode in rotation for the next two hours, but I sure won't be happy with it. Maybe it's because I'm only A- in it, but it just seems like everyone only does what they please. This ways are ignored, shared clams are ignored, if you try to make an opening someone will take the hard way around... there's definitely a big learning curve that comes with it

    Believe me, it doesn't get much better in S and up. It's downright exciting when other players participate in proper team play in solo queue because of how rare it is.

    I like Clam Blitz on a fundamental level but it necessitates teamwork to the point where solo queue can be a nightmare. It can create some pretty high moments, though. Seeing four enemy power clams break right in front of your goal is incredibly satisfying.

    Clam Blitz is only good if your team mates know what to do in this mode. And it's a 50/50 situation in Ranked in general.

    So yeah, maybe it's best that you play Clam Blitz in League with someone who knows his stuff in this mode, let alone a 4-player squad.
