The results screen in ranked isn't organize in any order at all

It took me like a week to realize this. I was very confused for awhile.

Another one I can't figure out the answer to.....how does the + time under the main time get calculated in Splat Zones?

Are you sure? Because I find myself at the top with most splats and specials more often than not. It definitely feels like it has some sort of order to it.

Nah no bonus, I think he was just saying it's time-consuming to exit the Lobby, walk over to Murch, scrub, then go back to the Lobby after every match.

Hmm, I just noticed that when you're looking at the Battle schedules in the Splatnet app, you can click on a map and it'll pull up your win percentage in each Ranked mode. Incidentally, I am hot garbage at The Reef so far.

Also if you click on the Splatfest banner you can see which team your friends have joined.

I really like the headlamp helmet. Sure its not "fresh" but its got a nice gritty and dirty look to it, which is rare in Splatoon. That's what I really want from the Grizzco gear, not stupid polo shirts.

That's what I was thinking, but in rainmaker what gets you the points? If you look at the scoreboard here

Hmm I think when you disconnect the game removes your splatfest tee for some reason. It keeps equipping the starter tee and that's the only explanation I can think of.

Points are inked turf, so it still displays by Turf War rules, despite not really mattering.

I thought the Rainmaker points were distance moving the Rainmaker forward and lowering the distance remaining for your team. Like if you moved it from the center and took it down to 15 points, you'd get top on the scoreboard even if somebody else carried it from your goal to their goal and scored.

I climb around a lot on that stage, there's a lot of places you can jump to from the tower to ambush the opposing team from. Also give the octobrush a try.

Hey so you know how previous Salmon Runs had rewards up to 1200, then after that it was just the clothes repeating? Well I see some pink capsule on my card at 1600 now. I wonder what that is.

That is 100% new as I have gotten north of 2k points without seeing anything over 1200. Maybe after they changed it to 24 hours they decided to add a third super bonus? If you get it totally report and see if it is 100k coins, 5+ tickets, or what. I have gotten poo poo bonuses since htat first weekend. NEED COINS.

Yup. Looks like the pink capsules will contain random clothing from past Salmon Run events so you can get them that way if you join late.

Look on the bright side.

Finally unlocked the .96 gal which was my favorite weapon in 1. I'm glad it has armor as the special since I play with it in a more supporting role. Sprinklers are cool too and I almost forgot they returned since I rarely see them.

Don't run backwards with the rainmaker, if you really feel like you need a reset kill yourself by jumping off a ledge. This will place the rainmaker back in the middle which is better than the alternative. Thank you.

At the start of the round at the bottom part of the screen is a tinted wave-like overlay
If it is below the text, it is low tide, if it's way above the text (almost halfway up) it is high tide - in the middle is normal

Neddy Seagoon posted:

You have a transparent wave animation as part of the wave-starting HUD along the bottom of the screen. Covering up to half the screen means high-tide, floating around the bottom of the screen means low-tide.

Thanks for explaining the high/low tide indicators on salmon run guys. That transparent wave banner was a lot more subtle than I was expecting.

Pubbies been doing real good with today's loadout. All straightforward damage weapons resulted in me going 5/5 today in pro.

Do you really have to complete every single level in the single player campaign with a weapon just to unlock a reskin?

On that note, for the people that have played with the umbrella shotgun a bit, what do you think about it? I'm personally a little iffy on it, but I can see it having quite a bit of utility for more support oriented playstyles.
