I should really get around to unlocking ranked. Been sitting at level 9 for days now.

It's just that every time i log in, Salmon Run is available and I end up doing that for the rest of the night because it's so drat fun.

I honestly would have been pretty pissed if someone spoiled the final boss of 3D World before I played it myself.

Furries should be told to get back in the trash where they belong, even if they are no longer the kings of poo poo life choices mountain anymore.

If you can't rank up steadily it is mainly on you cause if you're so much better you can least splat everyone else and make it stupid easy for your bad teammates.

However I just now got out of C- in Tower Control and it bumped me right up to B- so I'm scared

People continue to make huge mistakes in positioning, overestimating their weapon effectiveness, etc. all the way through the A ranks so while the game will be a little tougher in B you'll be alright if you keep at it. Just remember no matter how well you play you will lose sometimes and that the only factor you can control is the quality of your own play, so don't let the things outside your control get to you and focus on what you did well and what you could have done better.

Saltspray Rig, because it had a different flow from all the other maps. Most maps use rotational symmetry, so they're laid out in either a line or a circuit. Saltspray Rig used mirror symmetry, allowing for that big neutral motherlode in the back with a head-to-head gauntlet leading up to it.

Blackbelly Skatepark because it was brush heaven.

I wouldn't use the paint brush while it was in rotation, but it was a ton of fun, wonder what it'd be like if they gave it bouncy sections like in the single player?

To add to this I had a match in my last tower control session in which I flanked from the side while my team rode the tower and the entire enemy team decided to chase after me. Because I picked the right moment to start running away and they all gave chase, my remaining 3 teammates on the tower got an easy KO. This would not have happened if anyone on the team had chosen to keep the objective in mind, and that team had multiple A+ ranked players on it.

This is really good advice, thanks definitely getting flattened a lot more/not used to all the bombs and missiles flying about but hopefully trial by fire will help me improve

There is no indication of if it's actually that character or a clone or who knows what, also the other boss in that picture was not teased anywhere as being in Splatoon2 that I ever noticed.

Not everyone reads every tweet and watches hour-long youtube breakdowns of videogame box art.

Surprisingly (apparently) some people just go oh there is a new Splatoon game, I will buy that. In fact, it seems pretty obvious that the people who would care about spoilers are the very people who would have avoided them up to this point.


It doesn't matter that you don't "get it". It shouldn't matter if you don't care - just knowing that anyone cares, or honestly that potentially anyone cares should be enough to employ a little common courtesy.




edit: FOR EXAMPLE (not that it should matter)
Personally since we know that many of the octarians are grown from clippings or severed tentacles I thought that the final boss hinted at in the boxart might be a clone of Callie or that she was actually doing some sort of outreach to the Octolings what with there being one in the new host duo.
Honestly the worst part is that its a big load of nothing and a major letdown. All these new bosses, all that story stuff before launch and oh, its mind control and the final boss is a repeat for the first games with a grind rail segment added on. Then callie doesnt even stick around and we put the villian in a snow-globe again since that worked so well the first time. The singleplayer was a actually pretty neat thing but that last part felt like a rushjob.

Also yeah jokes aside spoiler tags take no effort to use, might as well use em

I was just hit by a fun 'bug' where I won a match and my XP didn't stop increasing, pushing me from 19 up to 21. As soon as I hit another screen my XP reset and I was back at 19.

Cholesterol in your food gets broken down in your intestines and does not increase cholesterol in your blood where it's dangerous. Sugar on the other hand is the devil.

Question for people who played a lot of Splat 1 - Is an endgame goal of "Have all of the gear and have all of it with 3 slots" reasonable, or would that require a completely stupid amount of shells?

Splat Zone rules and is the most similar to a regular FPS deathmatch battle, but gently caress off if Moray is in the rotation.

Somewhat reasonable but a waste of time imo. Just focus on customizing the gear you like with ability chunks you prefer.
