    Seeing a picture is one thing. Seeing it in motion is a whole other horror. And level 30?! That's some hotel California eternal RPG grinding time sink trap malarkey there! No wonder they patched up that ticket exploit real quick.
     
  2. I hate playing with super defensive ballerinas in rank, I rather play with high risk ballerinas in rank cause we actually get somewhere with high risk tactics.

    First off, how do you make yourself invisible online to friends? I don't intend to do it, but I did not know that was a feature.

    Secondly, join ussssssss in battles. °u°

    On your account page, under "User Settings" there's a "Friends Setting" with an option to reveal your online status to "Best Friends," "All friends," or "No one."

    Nuuu~ not yet! At least, let me look fresh first instead of some half-cooked sketchy seafood (and maybe consistently charger hit a moving target?). lol

    Hey, 22 kills in C+ Tower Control with rapid Blaster, it jumped me straight up to B+ In one fell swoop. And I despised the Rapid Blaster in the original game. You've just got to get a good push and then play defensive, so when your team inevitably gets wiped you can hold on and keep them from pushing back.

    I like the buffs to the ink mines on a related note. They don't splat anymore but they're perfect for the Rapid Blaster because they cause enough damage for a single direct hit to splat, and they track like point sensors. And did you notice the bomb rush plays the squid sisters song?

    Overall, the "playing with weapons I'm crappy with" is going pretty well

    Salt wise; I'm pretty bad with the dualies. I can never seem to get the rolling and aiming and gettin close enough to splat all in one. They always seem to get me as soon as I roll away. It's the only shooter I can say I don't like, along with well the aerospray, but I haven't played that since the first game. Oh and I played on my first Japanese lobby, I can see why they separated us into regions.. the lag was pretty bad, I had to estimate when I'd hit enough to splat and then move away to avoid being splatted.

    Sorry I'm kinda turning this thread into my personal splatoon 2 diary.. I should stop.

    Okay.
    Salmon Run.
    UFO event.

    When the mother ship is coming in...STOP SCREWING AROUND IN THE FIELD!!! EVERYONEEEEEE should be focusing to get the ship away from the egg basket. I am SICK of losing matches because 2 morons are off trying to collect their one egg when 4 or 5 are being stolen...

    Since we are giving out offerings of salt for this thread, I thought that maybe I can share a few random salty thoughts. As a warning, I have many and I am putting them in list form so please bear with me.

    · There is one-minute remaining and we are losing in turf war. I know the temptation to be all ****-all about the situation is great and all & you want to just get splats at this point. But would it actually hurt you to…you know, IGNORE THE OPPOSING TEAM AND COVER SOME GODDAMN TURF? Literally every .1% makes a difference, try to make some effort.

    · While on the subjects of kills/splats, if you are one of those people that likes to brag about your KDR, or about how you get lots of kills in a game about squids and ink, do us a solid, put down your Switch, maybe return your copy of Splatoon 2, and pick your Xbox/PS4 controller back up and go back to playing COD. Because we really don’t give a crap. Or at least I don’t anyway. Not going to speak for everybody.

    · It urks me that playing Splatoon 1 has trained me to spam the down button whenever I get splatted.

    · To whoever thinks it’s a good idea to put a Squid beakon anywhere near our own spawn point repeatedly, I hate to inform you but…YOU ARE ****ING USELESS!!!

    · To anyone that finishes a ranked battle with 2 or less splats while the rest of your team had 10 or more while playing the objective, YOU ARE ****ING USELESS!!!

    · Charger Mains in Turf War, 1.) Stop using us for target practice & 2.) YOU ARE ****ING USELESS!!!

    · Speaking of which, does anybody EVER keep an eye out for where chargers are camping at during ranked? I DO!!!

    · In Rainmaker, I have a hard and fast rule, “When in doubt, He who breaks it, takes it”. The role I try to play involves not using the Rainmaker. So it annoys me to no end when my rando teammates break the shield and then avoid it like the plague despite having splatted at least three opponents in the ensuing explosion because they are afraid to get shot at apparently. So I have to take it and it mostly goes about as well as you expect.

    · During Salmon Run, it is ****ing irritating to aim at a Flyfish's missile thingies when you are getting smacked in the ankles by Smallfry and their itty-bitty *** frying pans. Ping, pingping, ping,…

    · If you have a golden egg, put it in the basket, no questions! If we met the quota, but at least two of us got splatted and there is less than 15 seconds left, don’t be a hero. You would be surprised how quickly it can go from Mission Accomplished to Game Over when someone decides to go Johnny Badass on the three or four Salmonid bosses in front of him while we are going “Help”.

    I believe that’s all from my 50lb. bag of sea salt. So TL;DR, Be smart and make an actual effort if you want to win battles.

    The ranked system makes NO sense. I've learned a little how it works but it isn't intuitive at all. I went into rainmaker, which I haven't touched basically since launch, and I'm not having a good day, didn't get to use any specials due to repeated goofs... my team wins and I get kicked up 4 ranks to B. WHAT? I can't even be happy about it because I'm so confused!

    "I know now why you cry, John Connor squidkid. And it is something I will have to do."

    Finally tried rank for the first time! A few matches of Tower Control that then suddenly turned into Rainmaker...

    Sweet fish loving baby Jesus being sung a Squid Sisters lullaby to sleep—is this how converts to the faith of Tenttatek Splattershot are born?! It's an utter mess starting down here!

    For the lulz I decided to buy a blaster then skipped my happy butt over to Tower Control.
    • Both teams like to pretend they're salmonids and constantly swarm the tower
    • Keep splatting the other team just under two dozen times
      • But can't get to two dozen because I keep running out of ink ¬¬
    • One match had a charger on the other team... that wouldn't charge...
    • Lost every match save for the last one before the rotation ended
      • Practically had to solo spawn camp to win it
    Took a breather, knabbed my splat charger then went into rainmaker
    • Now permanently splatted into my memory that the rainmaker is now a grenade launcher!
      • "Wow dude, you can't aim worth a—why is it glow—aww f—*respawn*"
    • I know the ink rails are fun, but maybe you shouldn't try to activate or ride it while a charger is aiming directly at you!
    • Everyone! Stop carrying the rainmaker up the right ink rail leading to the sniper perch—when everyone else is waiting for you at the end! Or when someone is on the end to turn it off!
      • Seriously, worst case was an entire team out of desperation doing this all together... while I was watching them come up... with the rest of my team standing next to me.
        • I let them handle the first two that hopped out while I got a double on the carrier and his last escort while they were still on the line.
    Rank climbing from the bottom... it's gonna be a long climb... u_u

    One quick question about Tower Control, if you don't mind.

    If it was that easy for me to mow down three opposing squids trying to get to the Tower with my SS Pro, Exactly how hard can it possibly be for three other teammates to take down the one remain scrub on the tower holding an Aerospray?

    Answer: Very Difficult, Apparently. Two got splatted, the other was just standing there with his out-of-range Aerospray hopelessly firing away. By the time I had to deal with him, a couple of his teammates came back via Super Jump. It didn't end very well nor did the match for that matter.

    I struggled my way into S in splat zones, only to get hurried back into A+ after a brutal losung streak. I'm still trying to get over it!

    Most of my grumbling these days comes from design decisions, because just like ARMS they made some weird-*** choices when making this game.

    -How does rank skipping work? I've done terribly and done amazing and jumped rank both times, I can see no pattern and I've heard the same from people I know.
    -Why do regular battles have an inferior way of showing disconnects? There IS a change, their weapon icon is colored instead of greyed under the X, but that's hard to notice in the heat of battle and Salmon Run just removes their weapon icon entirely. Why the heck don't they use that elsewhere?
    -What determines whether a match is a "draw"? If someone disconnects in rank/league sometimes the game notices and decides not to penalize you, other time it knocks you anyway. I had a league match where 5 people dropped, leaving me and two Japanese guys. They won of course, and my team lost more league power from that match than from every other match we did combined! Meanwhile we had disconnects in other matches that wound up as "draws".

    It's a good thing the base gameplay is fun, because the mechanics surrounding matches need improvement and/or transparency.

    Edit: Here's a couple more!
    - Why is hit registration still incredibly off? I can shoot someone point blank with the n-zap and hear six hit sounds before they explode, and on the receiving end I can get hit once, with one sound, and die. I've seen this in footage as well. Removing damage up only removed one layer of inconsistency.
    - WHY DID THEY MAKE QUICK RESPAWN USELESS? "Oh it's meant for new players now" That still means an entire brand of clothing is less enticing because of it! The Jellyvader Cap looks amazing but I'd be a fool to use it because I'd just get useless Quick Respawn ability chunks!

    PSA: Stop bringing your Aerosprays into ranked battles. I expect that in the C and B ranks, but people are still using them in A, and they can't perform because everyone else is using far more balanced weapons. It's basically a death sentence for your team. And I've been "gifted" with being an Aerospray magnet, because they just love to be on my team.

    I would like to point out I am also an ink armor ally repellent apparently. I'm constantly dealing with teams with one or two ink armor users ready to spam it to win, but I rarely get the privilege to get some players on my team with the special. I think I dislike Ink armor more than the bubbler and Kraken at this point. Rarely did those two result in team wipes like the armor can do easily.

    So I am not insane noticing the same thing...feeling like I can hit someone 6 times with a weapon before splatting them, only to be splatted by the same weapon in 1 or 2 hits...I do not think the bonuses make THAT BIG of a difference.

    It's a mess!

    My teammates are a mess. You're a mess. I'm a mess. We're all a mess. It's all a mess!

    I don't care what side you're on, but you either leveled up enough or ranked up enough to know better! Or at least take the hint
    • Stop running/swimming towards your teammates whenever you're locked on by the Tenta Missiles or an AutoBomb.
      • I don't care if "it's the thought that counts," I don't won't your second-hand explody gift!
    • Even if you don't know the range of an enemy weapon, at least know the range of your weapon
      • That goes double for newbie tri-sloshers and quadruple for aerosprays!
      • If you have a longer range, it's okay to NOT melee someone with it...
    • Discretion is the better part of unsaltedness
      • You don't have to stand there/keep going forward if you're taking hits—leave
      • X, ↓ + A. Get that into your muscle memory if you want to quickly get your butt back to base.
    • If there is a charger or splatling on your team, do not get in front of them when you're jumping off ledges or they are fighting someone!!!
      • If you're that clingy then keep to their left side, as the inklings are right handed most players' aim will veer right
    • Do not travel in a straight line when a charger or splatling is about.
    • Do not rush attack someone in a straight line!
      • Especially head on!
        • Especially head on when they out range you!
    At first I found this all amusing. Then it got annoying. Now it's been salt inducing. Soon enough, it'll be amusing for me again.

    It's killing me, it's murdering me. No, those confounded baseline of a aerospray horde hasn't struck me a nerve yet, but they are there, wilting the grounds with their ink. It's Murch, we got a problem. Big problem. You see? I spot many, many, nice gear afoot in the square. In fact, most of my funds are going to these fresh fashion.

    The Dynamo roller was unlocked today, standing there, staring back at me as it hung from the shelf with the sheen radiating off the coils, and metal components. It was teasing me in fact, how long I've been without this brute for a long while for a week. It was calling for me, calling for a companionship that I must postpone for a while.

    I'm tired of your carp, Murch. But they have states I wanted, but I am sick of...GOING UP AND SPENDING 50K OR 30K ON YOUR COD. Alas, I can't express murder like how I do in Skyrim. I can't waltz up and punch you square in the face, then ravage for your valuables. No, the game is just too nice for me.

    So I spend half of the day, grinding. Acting as a guard in the middle of the turf, even for a carbon roller user, this is embarrassing. I am not covering my turf, I am spamming my bombs. It works but...I am tired of the battle tactic I adapted towards. You with splattershots, aerosprays...I can name them all, take advantage of your distance!

    I am not meant to REACH that far, and my carbon takes too loads to strike someone down. I am only meant to recover the turf. I am also a support unit.

    Finally, another day spent and I am broke out of my wits. That dynamo roller still sets there, mounted there, shining brightly as it will be much later to be used by me. I hate Murch, I hate you.

    I just had a match of rainmaker (muscle Forge) we were ahead 28 to 78.
    I'm deep in the enemy lines clearing a path for my team mate that just picked up the rain maker. No I cry as I watch the Rainmaker go almost all the way to our point. But the Squid is purple... My team... No no no. I yell as I jump back to spawn. My team mate gets splatted, I get close enough to unload the Splatining but I'm too late the game is set.I drop my pro controller in rage... And take a bath to let the salt leave my body.
