    Oh thank the heavens! Seriously with all the input lag that I've been feeling on the Testfires and all the complaints there have been, it's good to hear a top level player come out and just put the demon at bay. Everyone has been up in arms about this, and we were really concerned for the future of the game if the inputs were that laggy.

    But you don't understand--it is an issue!11! I hate motion controls--

    <translated incoherent screeching>
    and Nintendo needs to stop making them a thing because motion controls suck and we need to stick with traditional stick controls because they're proven to be superior and no one has time to learn a different control scheme that sucks because motion control on the Wii sucked therfore motion controls on the Switch sucks therefore Nintendo needs to knock it the eff off with motion controls because motion controls suck--

    Motion controls have been proven to be better thoooooooo. I used sticks for the entirety of Splatoon 1 (until my Wii U sunk /cri), and I still firmly believe that motion is superior. I can't tell you how many times I could have gotten a kill but held the stick down for literally 1 frame too many, which resulted in me missing a slosh. I hate having that margin of error, and motion controls are so much more suited for hitting those slight adjustments.
    Anyways, I don't want this to become a full-fledged debate, but thanks for sharing the tweet lol.

    I really never thought it was an issue. I never heard of this beyond a few random grumblings on here and in servers, and let's face it... if there was any sort of delay or issue with the controls even after patches, the playing field would be even. We're all on the same hardware, everyone would have the same issue, everyone would adapt and move on.

    No debate necessary, I was just being facetious. Besides at least 90~95% of my Splatoon play is at max sensitivity. Even with aiming weapons.

    That is way too high for me. But that is why there is a slider.
    I'm not even 100% sold on the motion now. But it is nice to see this addressed.
    After trying to play Splatoon with Motion controls recently, I found that the pro controller (in my opinion) has way nicer Gyros that the WiiU tablet.
    I will get back to you after I get good.

    If you think that's wild, then consider that (to me) +5 in Splatoon 1 feels like 0 in Splatoon 2. But that could be due to having separate motion control and sensitivity options. Either way I plan to perform like I first did in Splatoon 1: set sensitivity & motion controls at max and use chargers in rank!

    Max settings in handheld mode however is feeling trickier at the moment. Holding the Switch directly in front of me at normal eye level causes my inkling to look up. =/

    I want to be better with Chargers. I find my own reaction time lacking most of the time. This is just a case of me needing to git gud.
    I Ted to prefer Automatic weapons because ease of uses. The less I have to remember to do in the heat of the moment the better. But I'm not satisfied with that. Sure I'll still uses the N Zapper and wasabi Splattershot. But I feel I kinda wrote off chargers and splatining (gun) too early. That new splat brella looks prefect for me.
    But I'm committing to get better with the Charger.
    After I get used to 'B' being jump...

    I feel a lot of my initial splat will be because I am opening map instead of pressing b, honestly though if you want to get better with chargers try either seeing who is the best with chargers now, or if you need help I could give you a few tips when splatoon 2 comes out (offically), dependant on what charger you want to use.

    US Tumblr update. Mostly unexceptional, except for one line:
    "If you give snails to Murch in Inkopolis Square, he can add additional slots to your gear, or scrub your gear to remove its secondary abilities."

    So that's confirmed now. This is kinda huge! With gear customizing no longer being random chance, super sea snails are infinitely more valuable! If prizes are the same as the first game, that's TWENTY-FOUR gear scrubbings for a splatfest victor and the acquisition of up to 72 ability fragments!

    SPLATFESTS 2.0: SPLAT HARDER! The stakes just ramped WAY up, get ready to fight like spartans for your prize!

    Quick question about the upcoming splatfest: Apparently it's going to be possible to play with friends in a 4-player lobby, which is very nice. What about (analogous to "league battles") a 2-player team teaming up with other 2-player teams..? :D

    I am in loveeeeeeeee with the new colours they're using for the ink. I can't wait to actually see it but all the neon in the plaza is making for some serious eye candy. I hope they just keep adding colours.

    Kind of a shame then that this first splatfest will yeild no rewards, but not a big deal.

    I feel this big push everywhere for Splatoon2 is good for the community and the chances for it to be a bigger eSport.

    It definitely sucks that there is a flash storage shortage. (This is the reason it's so hard to manufacture more Switches). We can hope this problem will be corrected quickly.

    It's confirmed in the same post that caused my excited rambling, yeah. Relish in the one and only no-stakes splatfest, because they are going to be full of tryhards from here on out :p

    Apparently my phone hates Tumblr...
    Also has been really bad at notification for this thread... But I understand... Hype levels are insane.

    Yeah Splatoon 2 preorders in Japan are over 800k but there's only just over 1m Switches, thus Splatoon 2 has already sold almost as much as physically possible weeks before the game even releases! R.I.P. Japan lel.

    Thus far the direct only showed solo and team battle (but didn't fully state if twins could be done or not). And from the looks of it, the maps will be Starfish Mainstage and Inkblot Art Academy.
