    Well folks

    This is it. Dead Sea 2: Electric Boogaloo is coming out as fresh as can be for Splatoon 2.

    Same rules as the first, vent, discuss, but keep it clean and don't go too far. Salt is pure and a disinfectant, after all.

    Have at it folks, and stay salty.

    *raises hand*
    Can the salt be from the tears of people who don't have the Switch or Splatoon 2?

    No one should be afraid to let some salt go in this thread. I honestly think being able to write down my frustrations in the original salt thread helped me calm down and move on much quicker.

    Plus it's always good to see what is troubling other players, so I can commiserate with them if I am suffering from the same issue, or keep an eye out for whatever is giving them trouble as I play.

    I'll start.

    I'm terribly salty right now
    I got double-charged on the Eshop. I hope this won't be a hassle to get the money back from :s

    But I'll be in and gathering a healthy supply a salt for the thread soon enough.

    Salmon Run has jacked up my sodium levels significantly a few times already. The boss that makes it rain green ink is a giant PITA when paired up with almost any other boss...that area of effect is FREAKING MASSIVE. Nerf please...it doesn't need to cover 1/3 of the battlefield.

    I feel like the enemy sting ray has FAR more responsiveness than our own sting rays =P

    Also there is always ONE dummy who isn't paying attention to the random water rising event and drowns before the salmon even come out (Okay I am not really salty about that...it's kind of funny)

    But while we are on the topic of team mates. I love when I solo 2 bosses and there are 6 golden eggs to collect and I spam "THIS WAY" 99 times and the other 3 are derping around, playing with each others tentacles for 30 seconds accomplishing nothing. I feel like some of these people are handing their 3 yr olds the controller...

    MORE on my "team mates"...when it is night time and the salmon are charging viciously...don't be stupid and play by the shore lines. Get on the high ground, preferably backed into a corner. They will not be able to get to you...if I can pick up on this after a single night event, so can anyone else.

    I think that is it for now....

    Well, after playing for a decent bit

    I have to say, I'm not really annoyed more so..disappointed. It doesn't look like the Inkbrush made it in at all, and I really hate using the octobrush so I guess I'll need to figure out a new weapon or two to use.

    Happy Birthday, Self, here's a game you can play approximately half of!

    I'm really hoping the problem is server cloggage due to it being release day, because if I can't get online (aside from posting screencaps, lol) by way of my hotspot I'm pretty much boned. At least until next April when our ISP contract runs out and we can hop to another one :T

    Another dash of salt from me...so...Salmon Run. Oh I like this mode so much. The half ignorant player base? Not so much, but it isn't entirely their fault. See, the game gives you a tutorial that makes you fight every boss...heh, excuse me, "every" boss. No...it misses a couple. Now, the fryer isn't a big deal, but people still seem to have no clue what to do at night when they have the flies....but even worse, is that STUPID UFO event. Not only can some of the weapons not easily hit those annoying things that drop the eggs, but most of the team doesn't understand the mother ship STEALS EGGS. Now, I think this problem will go away as a majority of the player base begins to understand how each event works, but for now, it is a headache.

    I am salty about the Stingray and the Splat Charger itself. I used to be a charger main, but the one I am stuck with until level 24(!!!!!) is annoying, especially in Turf Wars. I can see the Stingray be useful in TC or Rainmaker (&Salmon Run), but besides that it's a garbage special which accomplishes nothing.
    In Splatoon 1 the chargers unlocked much earlier and there was the Squiffer and Bamboozler ontop of that, but the thought of being stuck with this one type of charger until level 24 is making me salty as ****.

    It makes me salty because I figured out what was going on in seconds, I would expect the same of others XD It sucks to lose not because you got over ran, but because half the eggs you brought to the basket were re stolen >.<

    Within the first hour I already met someone I should block. Maiden venture into Salmon Run and by the middle of Wave 2 one of my coworkers decides to just sit in squid form at base while we do the work.

    Middle management material that one...

    He only tries to help out near the end of Wave 3 after we got missile spam wiped one-by-one. And even then all he did was just lob grenades down at us while we pleaded for help.

    Of course we lost!

    At least the second group was better. I taught them to booyaj. We paired up in teams. Called out when we found a boss. Went way over quota. And tried to teach them to victory squidbag. All three of them jumped up and down in kid form instead, but one of them eventually figured it out.

    Damn, new players can be adorable!

    Only a teensy tiny bit, but I may as well stay on top of my regular desalinization routines.

    T'was a rude awakening in C- rank that the signal "this way" does not mean anything to most new players, unlike back in spla1 S rank
    "ALRITE ye salty squits! We're up by 1 squid and 2 specials to zero, CHARGE!!!
    . . . or just paint walls in base while I push the objective alone, that's cool too .-."

    The funnier thing is.. three of us did that because I had no idea it just happened, and then the fourth guy just booyah'd us and then died to some tentamissiles. Not a single egg. Not even a regular egg. The worst run ever, literally.

    I will saythough, I had no idea how much the Slosher relies on ink resist up without the burst bombs. Like I was struggling and dying as much as I killed early on because I went without it, and then when I put it on it all became so easy, half the time I didn't even die once.

    And I disagree with the stingray, if you know how to use it it's pretty effective. Just don't hold the button down or you'll never get anyone, and if someone's after you you can always swim away. I assumed from trailers and early gameplay you were locked into most of these specials but no you can swim away with stuff like bomb launcher and stingray still active.

    I'm gonna have to get used to some weapons having certain bomb subs and having different bomb specials though, it's weird.

    But my favourite thing so far is moonwalking tentamissiles who can't find anyone to lock onto and end up slowly dancing around in the middle of the field.

    Yeah this game is gonna create many amusing memories. Far as the sting ray, I am sure some people can use it very well. I think in many games like this, there are certain classes of weapon or character that only a small handful of people can get any real use out of. In this game, I think chargers and the sting ray take the lead there =P I think those weapons should be left to the very capable minority. I personally LOVE the slosher. I am pretty stacked with ink savers right now, and it seems to be working out fine. Can't wait to unlock the tri slosher.

    Is it just me, or do the stores have like no options? Okay, I bought gear yesterday, waited until midnight to see my new selection... of basically the same exact 15 items, give or take a few. I know there's a lot more one-star gear than what I've seen, both in stores and in battle, and it has been confirmed that everything is returning... unless 90% of the gear is Splatnet exclusive...

    Grrrrrrrrrrrr

    The stock seems to rotate at midnight, and you can order stuff off the app. The app has several random items that are up for a seemingly random amount of time each, so check every few hours there and you should see a slew of new items (of course you can only order limited items at a time)

    As someone who plays with every weapon, I'm really diggin Salmon's mechanic of provided weapons and switching them after each wave.

    HOWEVER
    , when the rest of your crew lacks a multi-weapon discipline skillset it shows!

    One wave you're going three or four times your quota, then the next wave I'm reduced to a healer and casting phoenix down bubbles with a blaster the entire time, or the blaster user takes on everything in melee range, or the slosher is constantly running out of ink.

    Can't wait to see what happens when we're provided a charger!

    And I really need to stop jumping down to ground level at the start of a wave, then get alerted the tide is coming in...

    So I've had a super great Salmon Run experience so far. We've had a few team wipes due to literally being overrun by like 5 bosses, but almost all my teammates have been great so far. Here's hoping it stays good.

    For my little bit of salt, it feels bad (but also a bit good) when you are the only thing between your team winning and losing. I've lost a ton of matches where I singlehandedly hold the map down, only to get ganged up on by two or three enemies at once and proceed to see my teammates's squids get blacked out and we lose. Again, it's only a little salt since it means I am playing very well. Though it also means my road to level 10 is taking longer and longer, and I really want to jump into ranked. I am 9 at least, but it will take a while, and it's hard to get the weapon fresh bonuses when I can't win consistently.

    Ranked is pretty bad atm... the main problem is the fact that ALL players are starting from scratch again. So anything from S+ to C- are being forced to play together which makes ranked extremely luck based on how your team is going to perform. I've had a lot of people trying to 1 vs the world in ranked and they spend the entire game getting steamrolled because of it. That makes it incredibly difficult to win a match when the opponents have a stacked team. I have also had the opposite where we dominated the opponents super fast. It's going to be a rough couple of weeks for ranked to say the least.

    I usually start my games off super aggressive just to see how both teams react. If I can play extremely aggressive and my team will play the objective then that is usually my way I like to play. However, if I have trouble with the opponents (trouble approaching, out-ranging, etc...) then I will play more passive and work with my team so that we can attack accordingly. Sort of a respect is earned not given thing I guess.

    Mrgrgr!

    I've should've kept low longer.

    Playing the single player campaign at my own pace but others won't shut up about story details. Should probably try and blind speed run the rest of the campaign then just take my time going back over stages...

    Also, what was I thinking—double +5 charger with starter gear only?! Numbskull training is what it is! Oh~ it's goin be a long while to unlock everything, even when I someday unlock ranked mode.

    And to top it all off, my left joycon really is randomly de-syncing, causing my inkling to just suddenly run off in random directions like she has something better to do!

    Just getting the 5 minute wait penalty for having connection errors that seem "Prrrreeety Suspicious" to the game....that leaves me salty enough.

    Yes game, I know. My connection is iffy durring some hours. Yes- that must be suspicious that I got errors AT THE START OF A MATCH. *Sigh*

    Maybe they can fix this a little better? I hope...

    I miss the old Inkbrush. At least with that you could fire off an Inkstrike every 30 seconds or so to make up for the fact that the main weapon sucks. Here it's just... meh.

    Also holy crap, Salmon Run gets very unforgiving at times. Basically any time a Flyfish shows up it'll be there for basically the entire wave unless you and a buddy get lucky and score a double bomb throw the instant it opens up its missile tanks... which doesn't happen often, because you'll be so focused on trying to deal with everything else that you'll not know it's even there until the missiles start raining down.

    Come to think of it, pretty much any time you have to deal with more than one Boss Salmonid is a real pain, simply because they don't die quickly enough to let you focus on the rest of them. This is only really an issue in the 3rd and (later half of the) 2nd waves, when the smaller Salmonids start coming in droves, but it's no less irritating in wave 1.

    Speaking of droves, virtually every Glowfly event I've been in has resulted in a crew wipe. They just become too much to handle unless you've got the Splatling, and even that won't help you get the Golden Eggs any easier.

    Okay I have to rant about something else concerning salmon run. Also, please let me know if this has happened to you yet. I ended up in a salmon run match BY MYSELF. Okay I get it. They decrease the number of golden eggs you need the less players there are. But that doesn't help because its seems like the number of enemies still come at the same rate as if it was a whole squad. I was fuming mainly because my ranking went down still. I like the mode a lot though, don't get me wrong.

    Well, I guess it's best to get a super bad Splatoon session out of the way. It was bound to happen. I start with Salmon Run, play five rounds of that where I can't complete one because of the difficulty (200 percent is hard!) and weapon comp. (the current weapon comp for Salmon Run with the Splatling, Octobrush, Dualies, and Roller is very iffy)

    Go onto turf to try and play around with some newer weapons and level up, I have one great match and proceed to have a string of lousy ones, and on top of that it took forever to get back into the action because the lobbies would take forever to fill. I was stuck waiting in one for like 7 or 8 minutes straight. I need to chill a bit. :oops:

    GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE~
    it's not a suppository!

    Roomie discovered we CAN play at home, so now we're both level 4.

    Things went better than expected, but I'm 99% sure half the squids I played with today belong in Rank. K/D ratios stayed in the positives (!!), even considering I haven't been able to play Sploon 1 in over a month, which pleased me immensely. HOWEVER, the several times I inked the most turf on my team, we still lost because everyone else was down in the kill box moshing with each other nonstop. Turf, y'all. It's about COVERING GROUND.

    Gonna try Salmon Run tomorrow night with an old acquaintance who's been having a rough couple years of it lately. Wish me luck =p

    Yea me and my friend figured out during to find a spot where they all just funnel in one direction and just rip through them.... unless your teammates lose their minds and run away like the glow flies are a swarm of bees. Or knock you into the water with the inkbrush.

    Losing like this... the salt from this is only compounded with the salt of my tears of losing a rank right at the rotation

    So far the only good thing about the Stingray is that actually using it has the chance of making the opponents drop their controller in sheer uncontrolled laughing fits

    Holy moly, that special is utter garbage. You know how with kraken people run away and then hunt you down as soon as you go back normal? With the Stingray it's the opposite- people actively start to hunt me down during it and then run away once the special is over. Even if you somehow master the limp noodle spray the ttk is so high it's not worth it.
