That's half-correct, you can also get it from other players in the plaza like buying gear off them worked in the first game. But the app is the primary way to get it

Someone mentioned it earlier but can newbies like me get a reminder of whether or not slopes and verticals count towards turf %? Was it verticals don't at all and slopes count for varying amounts based on angle or something?

Yes, exactly.

If you can see it on the overhead map at the end, it counts, so 100% vertical walls do squat for win percentage (though you still might want to ink them for other reasons)

They might appreciate that getting covered in paint causes damage, and then death, to the player character.

Slopes count for a percentage. Verticals don't count for turf war but are incredibly important for traversal in all modes. So don't ink every surface, but learn maps and identify important traversal verticals on the maps and keep 'em inked when you have the chance.

You could spend an hour or two painting every inch of the single player hub if you were bored in the first game. Could probably do the same in the splatfest demo's tutorial section if you felt inklined to do so.

The win is calculated by a purely overhead view. Everything else follows intuitively from that.

Only horizontal surface area matters. Slopes have some horizontal, verticals have none.

Its still worth doing strategically because you can swim up walls only if you paint them, but only bother painting walls if you're about to swim up them or if you want to block an enemy.

Exactly, I don't remember so many people using the weird percentage explanation with the first game or where it came from.

This was me. I've never played Splatoon 1 so I was using the roller, doing only horizontal flicks, and flailing around with the motion controls. Basically I was the perfect storm of garbage and I took 20 seconds to paint a wall.

It's okay, you just described high level roller play in Splatoon 1, so you just have to adjust to vertical flicks like the rest of us.

I was wondering, is the ink displayed on the screen 100% accurate as to how much of the ground is counted as inked by the game? Like, if there's a tiny little spot that isn't inked, does the game see that?

They should add a single player mode where you just paint an entire area by yourself to earn coins.

Yes, but it rounds to the nearest tenth of a percent or whatever.

I've seen lots of games lost merely because people didn't thoroughly ink their own backfield

Its hard to say, nobody has the source code and testing would be really hard. They have to store which ground is inked in some way internally while they're playing the game though, so once they already have that data in place there's no reason they couldn't write a proper algorithm to just crunch through it all and give a 100% perfectly accurate assessment.

I mean, for that matter, does the game even allow arbitrarily small holes? There's gotta be some "resolution" to the paint on the ground, and the way the paint kinda sloshes around it'd be really hard to actually figure out what the size of the 'pixels' of the terrain are. Well... I guess depending upon how they stored paint they could do it without a limited "resolution" using floating point positions of paint origin but then you have to track tons of overlapping paint... it'd be pretty inefficient. Maybe you could merge shapes but that's probably too much processing time...

It could be the game only uses the final screen to calculate it, and thus it would have a resolution based on the TV and there would be potential holes that would get rounded off, but I don't see why Nintendo wouldn't just properly calculate it if they already have the data in game.

But I would assume it's pretty dang accurate.

And yeah like Bloop said it does get rounded to the nearest tenth at the end.

The inkbrush is in the initial lineup of weapons. You don't even have to wait for a patch. All the major weapon types from S1 are in, and more are being patched in later.

Octobrush is the one you get in Story mode as the 'Inkbrush' weapon type representative.

For the Inkbrush itself, (minor Weapon shop spoilers) I took a quick peek at the full list of weapons he sells, and the Octobrush is the only brush he's selling right now at Level 10. Inkbrush is guaranteed to appear as free DLC though, and I can't imagine it'll take a long time to arrive. If it doesn't appear within the first few weeks I'd be really surprised.

It's a press embargo thing. Someone would have to get a copy early from a store and also own the Amiibos, which is just unlikely enough to be annoying like this.

Also it may be locked behind a release day patch too
