    I'm fairly new to the game - I've been playing about a month - and recently I've been getting put with higher level players. It seems like about half of the time, most or all of my team will spend the entire match booyah-ing, squid slapping, shooting at me, or running in circles. I just want to play some good, clean turf wars! What gives? It's discouraging...

    Sadly you find those people on this game especially in turf since its a 'casual' mode of play. You find it a lot less in Salmon Run and Ranked.

    Also the common term is Squid bagging or having a squid party when players go from kid to squid in a rapid fashion.

    Squid parties are all in fun. If you don’t want to squid party just join a new lobby. You cant force them to play, so you can just continue objective while the match ends (or join them)

    I find squid parties more often in ranked

    Guess I am lucky not to have that issue. X in the modes I play so that may be one of the reasons I do not see it very often.

    That’s unfortunate. I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been having that issue. I can definitely understand the frustration. Thankfully I’ve never had that issue. If it happens again I’d just just go exit and rejoin a new group.

    Just wait until you get to higher levels. Then you'll likely rarely run into them. I'm level 99 and lobbies I'm in usually are filled with players around 60+, and I can't remember the last time I ran into a squid party. And that includes Turf War.

    I does suck to run into people who knowingly ruin the game for others, but it was more of a problem for me in Splatoon 1. Splatoon 2 has been very mild with them, thankfully.

    I was trying to grind gear, and I ran into a japanese server squid party. The best thing to do, I think it was already said, is to just keep on the objective and ink things. (Also stay away from the squid party as you’ll be attacked if you try the objective and start covering enemy ink if they’re there.) But I’m LV18, and I’ve only seen 3 squid parties in total, only in turf war.

    Some higher level players think of TW as a joke. They come over after getting salty in ranked to goof off in TW. I don’t though. I enjoy both ranked and TW. You can block people you know. :D

    I want competitive TW to be a thing. I know teams hate it but I actually enjoyed when TW was apart of The World Championship. It forced competitive teams to play Turf War. We all started out playing turf war so I don’t get why so many of these players think they’re above playing it.

    That's because turf is heavily weighted, much of the time only the last 30 seconds are crucial. One team can be dominating for 2 minutes and then wipe at the end and lose because of that. Much of what happens before that time period doesn't matter, not something that can be said of any other mode.

    Technically that can apply to Splat Zones too.

    It really can't, the penalty system kinda prevents that from happening

    Not really, as said above penalty prevents overtaking the other team from being too easy.

    With Splat Zones, the entire game matters. Even if the opposing team is able to overtake in the last 30 seconds, that's only because they've kept the game score close or prevented you from getting too far ahead.

    Lemme talk about matchmaking though because its antrocious holy cowballs
    Sometimes people over lvl 100 get matched with beginner players like lvl 1-10. I really don't get that. That's pretty unfair because that would mean either an easy win for the lvl 100 player or a sore lose. I've only been playing for a few weeks now and i got to lvl 30 but this honestly annoys me SO much.

    I don't mind squidpartying that much. It's actually pretty fun. The game is SUPPOSED to be fun. If you wanna be negative nancy just go and join a different game

    Just cause somebody is past cap doesn't mean they're any good. In fact, a lot of post cap people I've run into are quite bad in comparison to even sub 40 plays.

    If your way of having fun is ruining someone else's fun, you should be the one to find a different game.

    That people like to squidparty in public lobbies at times is one thing, but the fact that they can't even owe up to the fact that they're being ****s to other people in the process is what annoys me more.

    Okay, time for my long overdue venting about squid parties. I hate them with a burning passion that's even hotter than the earth's core itself. Do it on private servers only or when celebrating a victory in Salmon Run, every other time, not okay at all. However, this isn't the worst of it yet. The worst comes when squid partiers actively try to splat players who want to play the game normally and then squidbags them for trying to play the game as intended, even though the players who try to play the game as intended would leave them alone. I wish there was a clan that discourages squid parties so that new players won't get discouraged from playing the game as intended. I specifically decided not to play Splatoon 2 this week because I know how being a beginner player not being able to win the first few games would get discouraged from playing, squid parties definitely discourage them from playing the game when all they are trying to do is play the game normally.

    During this demo period, I admit that if my opposing team has all the noobs, I may party just out of pity....especially in the lobbies I usually keep (which include some top-tier turfers).

    Squid parties should be banned from public lobbies -_- No seriously if you're caught doing that in public matches, you should be banned. Save that BS for private matches with friends PLEASE! There's having fun and then there's being a d***. Don't be the latter.
