    I don't play dualies that much, but when I do, I'd use that trick to drop down a ledge quickly. Just for mobility sake, not for a kill. But other than that, idk what else you could hold the ink for. The ink on the dualies are all pretty generous.

    I use the dodge roll midair while quickly changing directions for mixups or to bait out charger shots from enemies.
    It also works for retreating back to ledge if on Moray

    I also had a roll duel with a enemy duelies...roll and trying to get behind an enemy as roll and try to do the same...but nwither of us actually fired cuz we were too busy rolling:confused:

    The best dualies I’ve played against seem to be masters of rolling around corners/obstacles straight into their shot. I’m not a great player, so rolls in general throw me (whether the dualies player is good or not theirselves). But I definitely find the great players have fewer “frickery” rolls and more decisive rolls.

    Has anyone noticed a larger proportion of Japanese players in ranked lobbies since Ultimate's release or is that just me?

    Guess Japanese players are the only loyal S2 players

    League has been wild with JP lobbies.

    I guess this is what latestage Splatalism looks like. So far, the lag has at least been mostly manageable.

    Oh god, so many nerfs to my precious Ballpoint Nouveau and Hydra. brb crying.

    Tbh they needed it; three subs to achieve max damage was pretty insignificant. I guess the question is if 5 subs is worth the investment.

    Looks like Salmon Run will continue to give out new gear, so the dream of obtaining the rest of the Replicas isn't dead yet! (for gear, at least)

    This was fun. Here's my quick and dirty tier list. I think a few weapons are missing overall, but nothing that would have made a huge splash on my list.

    When the standard Splattershot (my main weapon) is missing but all it’s variants are up there.

    I guess you could count the Hero Shot though.

    Custom JR but no vanilla JR, too. I believe Zink mini was also straight up missing.

    But yeah, I had to use the reskin versions of a few to complete my list.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the result of years of research, my tier list, my greatest creation, my magnum opus, if you will. I present to you, the best Splatoon Tier List ever created.
    [​IMG]

    So yeah, I’m a Splatoon player. Along with that I know many things that most don’t know about these weapons. Squelcher isn’t part of any weapon class and I’m not saying that because I love them. I’m saying that based off of years of research.

    Very well thought out, factual, and not biased unlike most tier lists.

    A Christmas miracle!

    What stuck out to me while scooting through my list was that the meta is so good right now. Nearly every weapon is viable (even if just niche situations) and literally every special is viable as long as we don’t count curling bomb rush, which we don’t. Dope game.

    I awoke from my grave just to say that this tier list is Grade A EPIC and I agree with its contents. Thank you for this.
