    I'm definitely a filthy casual whose only real exposure to online play and shooters is this game. Even I've had those "It didn't take this many hits to splat in the test range...." moments, rather often I might add. If I notice something isn't right, you know there's a problem.

    I always feel bad immediately after I get a kill when there are two or more hits registered on the opposing player when I wasn't even aiming directly at them. That guilty emotion is then suddenly replaced with the recollection of all of those times I was splatted with one hit from am Aerospray, by a player who wasn't even hitting me while my reticle was dead on them, or being splatted from afar and never even seeing the hits or ink on me at all and just suddenly exploding then seeing enemy ink all over the immediate area.

    I agree with the rest of your post, but I would like to add that not every time you feel something was off, it actually was. A lot of times it can be a placebo, or even just a misread of a situation. I just figured I'd add it's good to keep aware of that, too. :p

    True, but some were claiming it's not a problem for casuals and yet one as casual as myself noticed. I mainly had those people in mind when I wrote that.

    I think a solution would be one of two things. 1 better internet people be allowed onto better servers and find others with decent internet as well just have multiple types of servers and be eligible for better ones with better internet. 2 maybe 5, 10$ a month for access to a "season" with ladders ways to make teams better servers competitive rule sets (if there are any for splatoon that's not just default) with a requirement of decent internet. Also I would like to put in some setting don't find me people/servers with more then, let's say 100 ping to me or the server. It would take longer to find games but I would get better games. In splatoon 1 I get in all but me Japanese people servers a lot and it's very laggy. I have more experience with 1 so I'll talk about that, my main lag experience is when my ink bullets or whatever you want to call them go right on the person and I can see the little splash or whatever on the player yet they take no damage. Some times with a .52 gal with 6 pwr ups versus a guy with 0 defense ups I see that thing on him 5 times and 1 bullet actually deals damage the others do nothing just fade our of exsistance. Some times I get killed behind walls or inkzookas that miss or charger tracer and shots that miss but more commonly my shots don't hit them when they go right on them.

    It updates q6 times a second the higher the number the better in game like CSGO 64 tick is regarded as low and horrible people mainly play on 128 tick, 16 tick is embarrassing. Tick rate matters less in splatoon then CSGO because it's not histscan and many other reasons but 16 is still crazy low I would like to see at least 64
