    I'm inclined to agree that bans for squidbagging would be pointless and trivial, but again, this is Nintendo we're talking about here. Guess we'll see if any reports of it actually happening pop up.

    Freedom to taunt, I always say, is the backbone of any civilized society.

    That being said, taunt to get bodied is a true combo in every game so just take squidbagging as an opportunity to blow up your opponent with some fresh finesse~~~

    I heard that when enough people report you on splatnet. Nintendo will hit you hard with a permanent banhammer. Which is way beyond every acceptable scale. I would ban them for at maximal 12h no matter how often they are being reported. However: I might be wrong so please check that again.

    Squidbagging in Squidparty (As long as it isn't a online match, someone wants to win): Dance Move = Cool and it makes fun
    Squidbagging after successful SalmonRun: Screaming Victory = Cool and it makes fun

    Squidbagging in a online match: Insulting someone + failing to do the job (There is actual no time where you have time to squidbag. Go and ink over my ink. It gives you map control) = Just, why are YOU SQUIDBAGGING, GO DO SOMETHING ELSE (This is what I feel).


    ALSO: If you need to make you enemy angry to win, it just says that you are not good enough to win without that. And nobody need toxicity.

    What? OK. Smash has PEGI12 in Europe (USK12 und Germany) and Splatoon/Splatoon2 has PEGI7 in Europe(USK6 in Germany).
    And yeah: Taunting in Smash is kinda accepted (just I don't feel cool with it in online matches). But I don't really play Smash since it's somehow boring for me (And yet, I bought that game anyway).

    So in America, Splatoon and SSB4 both are rated "E10," which means it's recommended that folks ten years old and up play the game.

    Well, we now have confirmation, thanks to some rude person on Reddit.

    Yes, you CAN get banned for repeated and intentional squidbagging. Judging by the language used in the e-mail and the original poster's ranting, this is only for severe cases and the worst offenders, but it is indeed a bannable offense. We can say all we like about the matter, but this seems to be Nintendo's stance.

    unless its in salmon run where everyone wants to do it at the end of a successful egg snatching session, I'm against it a lot, while I don't usually get too mad if someone squidbags me ik it may drive some people round the bend :'3... my honest opinion is that people should not do it unless they know the other players are okay with it. Just my personal opinion I guess <:3

    I find Squidbagging after splatting an opponent to be a sign of immaturity, and overall bad sportsmanship. It doesn't make me angry enough to block anyone for it, which obviously some people will do, but for the most part I just roll my eyes, or maybe say "really?" to my screen before I move on. All things considered, they're just wasting their own time when they could be getting more of their own ink down.

    When turning into a squid then back to a kid repeatedly after winning Salmon Run, or when "partying" in the middle of Turf Wars, I just call it squid dancing-- or squidancing, if you will ;P -- instead of squidbagging to differentiate between that and taunts. It's done with entirely different intentions, after all.

    While i still think it's dumb, getting banned for Squidbagging is a little bit extreme.

    It doesn't make much sense to have to report it anyways, since the game could easily detect when someone is squidbagging (rapidly tapping ZL just after splatting an opponent). I think it's more fair to give the offending player less cash/exp at the end of the game and leave it at that.

    I personally think everyone who reports people for squidbagging needs to check your attitude. I understand this is a kids game and gloating isn't what they wanna promote, but you're also promoting passive-aggressiveness which causes way more conflict than it solves. It's just a game afterall, and as many people have said, squidbagging (in my case) is used to entice another good battle with a player.

    I can understand using the reporting for reporting players that throw matches though.

    Techincally you're getting banned due to multiple reports which may or may not be due to seabagging. Without seeing the complaints themselves, we don't know for sure. That said, even multiple people in this very thread are bothered by it so it's best to play it safe. But I swear to Cod if I start getting reported for post-Salmon Run squid partying...


    On a tangentially related note: If you check Google images for "squidbagging" and scroll a bit, you come across Dessgeega's avatar and it links you to this very thread. Dessgeega is now the face of seabagging. :p

    Of course, I had a rep for hating squid parties on the first game, makes sense I'd get some sort of curse on the second game too o_O That said, it's an odd oversight that people encountered in Salmon Run cannot be reported at all, with how this system works.

    I don't mind squidbagging, it's like taunts in smash. Whenever someone does it to me, I'll make a point of killing them and then squidbagging them back, then once the match is over I'll send them a friend request.

    I'll also squid party / squidbag if I get a really good kill (for example a 360 shot or a collateral from a charger).

    It's just a taunt over a petty victory, if you don't like it, get over it - it's not a big deal.

    I always got angry with squidbagging in the past, especially splatoon 1. I would get adrenaline and try to chase that squidbaggers down. But now I've tried calming down and telling myself it doesn't really matter. So now when someone squidbaggs me, I'll play the game normally. If I get a few splats on them, I might do a revenge flop but nothing more.

    I named myself "SQUIDBAGME" on my switch so it's actually quite funny when people squidbag me after they splat me :p I think that squidbagging and taunts in general are all in the head. I had no idea what it even was before I started joining the splatoon community, and that's when I was bothered by it. Just try not to get bothered by it and play normally.

    If I see someone squidbag a teammate, however, I will make sure I can avenge them.

    tl;dr just don't let it get in your head that much

    Aah! :eek: I remember seeing you in a match! (if that name is uniquely yours, anyway) Didn't end up squidbagging you, though - do I still win an attendance prize? :p

    I think there may be some karma at work here, because the last three inklings that squidbagged me ended up getting insta-avenged on-screen - and all three games we won as I recall. Wonder if we could compile some statistics on the relative worth of this phenomenon... x)

    I generally dislike squidbagging, since it's mostly a gross display of arrogance. If I happen to splat someone who squidbagged me, I'll do it back. It doesn't happen often enough for me to really tell how much it gets to me.

    As petty as it sounds, I do understand squidbagging a particularly annoying opponent. I don't agree with it, but I understand it. I watched this LPer do it once in 53 episodes to an annoying Charger. It was actually pretty funny.

    I haven't seen anyone else use it, so it probably was me! I honestly don't remember what weapon I was using, so... I can't say what weapon I was using?? But yes, attendance is always rewarded! But you still should've squidbagged me...
