    Ok so, I was in Turf War, fighting someone, my Ink Strike just got charged, so I was going to do an Squid Jump so I can Ink Strike...I hit the respawn point on the Gamepad to squid jump to it, everything was fine and I was flying...A Roller somehow killed me while I was waaayyy up in the air.

    I guess even though you are so high no one can see you while Squid Jumping, you can still get killed where you just were, until you hit the ground again.

    Maybe it was just a lag kill? BS either way

    I've been hit with an ink strike during hang time. So I don't think this is too far fetched.

    But it's probably lag if a ROLLER hit you

    Might have been you lagging.

    I doubt a Roller can swat you from way up there, however I'd be mightily impressed with someone who Killer Wail's a super jumper. That would be epic, if a little BS.

    It was lag. I remember I personally killed someone AFTER they have killed me, and I respawned. And this has happened to me as well, where I kill tuem, and by the time they are back up, they kill me.

    during the testfire i was shot out of the sky by a splat charger.
    that inkling has some fine aiming.

    i'd hate to think you don't have i-frames during the peek of the jump. Happened once to me.. would of been the coolest escape too!

    I've flown through wails and inkstrikes...pretty sure it's just lag.

    you're invincible during the jump, I've jumped through inkstrikes unphased lol. When you turn back into a human as you land (when you're able to begin shooting) I think invincibility wears off then. What happened to you sounds like a lag kill most likely; there's been plenty of times in lag where I'm like "Wait... didn't that roller run through me ?" ...2 seconds later SPLAT

    Not at all, it's perfectly fine.Probably just the roller lagging, like others are saying.

    Was just about to say with echolocator I have done this before. It's not hard to predict the arc, even with stealth jump.
     
    K7Sniper and Chocoling like this.

    Speaking of squids, I noticed that you can jump over a seeker as an inkling but not as a squid. i also notice if you hide in the bad guys ink, you can survive the kraken sometimes :) . lag maybe.

    I've been killed mid-super jump on more than one occasion. Never been very far up in the air though, and always on the up rather than the down.

    It's very likely it's all due to lag, since I've killed players and then walked away just to be splatted by the person I just killed several seconds later before they respawn
