The MMR in Turf War seems really bad which is one of the few reasons I've been avoiding it.

I don't know if there even is a matchmaking system in place. I'm just wondering if 8 random people are just tossed into a room.

I use it to practice with new weapons with little pressure. It's handy for that. And most of the time, only the last part of a Turf Wars match matters anyway.

I really don't care about my MMR/rank but I play Ranked almost all of the time because I think Zones/Tower/Rainmaker are more varied and fun gametypes, I just try to Care as little as I can about my placement

So I stink at ranked and I'm bored with long bouts of Turf War. What's the best way to get into SR with other goons now. Still the discord?

I have literally not played a single round of SR past the tutorial so I will stink at it too, make no mistake.

zolthorg posted:

Can't believe people are still defending votefest and the design of it and using my being mad at video games as an excuse for apathy or dignation

Here are the results of the 3 splatfests that went on since the matchmaking bugfix:
J2 - 67 Popularity beats 33, 6% win difference in the losing team's favor
NA1 - 62 Popularity beats 38, 2% win difference in the losing team's favor
EU1 - 67 Popularity beats 33, 6% win difference in the losing team's favor

if your win percentage difference was multiplied by 5 all three of the losing teams would still have lost
67 > 63, 62 > 48, 67 > 63

I'm talking about just giving two of those teams 30 points from win percentages, pretending they have a 15% differential by the current algorithm, which is a 42.5 to 57.5 winrate split. And they would STILL lose because the algorithm ridiculously heavily favors votes.

Splatfest should immediately move to a system that rewards you 3 separate bonuses: One for team rank, one for team winrate, and one for team popularity, otherwise if you have the audacity to pick a team before the end of the 2-3 day preamble and pick the losing team, you have a low incentive to play.

That's not quite right: The online store sells gears that have a different abilities you'd find at the square. The bug in question was that the abilities were different what was presented in some cases. Now you get what you ordered from the store.

Turf War is a nice way to chill, try out different weapons and strategies, and make some extra EXP and gold.


Atoramos posted:

You can still get gear with different main abilities than what you find in the stores. What got patched was slot-locked abilities showing up on the wrong equipment. For instance, no more Ninja Squid on hats, or whatever. There have been a couple hats with Tenacity that don't normally have Tenacity, and a desert camo hoodie with Ninja Squid.

I don't know how people are still confused about this, most everything Annie sells has a nonstandard main ability, you could check this at any time!

The issue was with mains showing up on clothing types that they shouldn't. Ninja Squid should only appear on chests, but it was popping up on footwear and headgear. Stealth Jump is exclusive to footwear, but it was appearing on headgear and chests. It's important because the developers clearly want you to have to make a choice on these abilities: you can only ever take Drop Roller OR Stealth Jump, they're both exclusive to footwear.

No, they fixed the glitch where you could get gear that had incompatible abilities, such as shoe exclusive gear on a hat. You can still buy gear with different main abilities, I bought an inkfall shirt that had run speed up, replacing the respawn punisher shirt I bought in game

Edit: hella beat on this one

I submit that you took that baseball, stashed it in your unusually large vagina, and walked right on out of here!


Welp, I made it to Over-achiever in Salmon Run and lost my first four shifts, probably one more loss from busting back down to Go-getter.

First shift got a Goldie fountain thing and no one knew what to do, we got like 2 eggs that wave. Second shift got the Mother-ship and fell short of the quota. Third shift I loving choked as the last survivor and couldn't revive teammates floating right next to as I hopped around like a fool with no ink in my charger before dying. Fourth shift we got Goldie again and we missed the quota by 1.

Does the Mother ship immediately steal eggs once it latches on to the basket or is there still a second to knock it off with no losses?

You have a couple of seconds to dislodge it before it starts draining eggs.

Wait, is this literally the splatnet app, or is there a different one too? You are blowing my mind. Also, SR is confirmed back in the US as well. It's live until 7 am tomorrow.

And shooting it with the stingray on the way in causes it to drop eggs. If you happen to have mothership wave 3 and both stingray charges, you will get a 30+ egg round.

There doesn't seem to be any kind of matchmaking in place. And I'm totally fine with Turf War being the casual chill mode, and enjoy it for that reason, but sometimes it feels bad to have two level 1 players on your team (or dominate a team of lowbies). It doesn't seem to attempt to balance the teams on any meaningful metric.

Also apparently I was very wrong about how the app worked, so there's that

Ugh, I had a terrible session of Turf Wars yesterday evening. Pretty much everyone was using the loving Aerospray and there kept on being at least one person who was level 20 or above on the other team, including one guy who I swear was loving psychic because he kept knowing where I was when I tried to escape in squid mode even though I have a shirt with Ninja Squid.


...In retrospect he probably had an gun item with thermal ink, which I just now remembered is a thing.

No I'm just really good and using the Aerospray is about mobility. I was practicing for the Splatfest. Did you ever play against GarbageBoy?
