I agree, but unfortunately, this one has the Carbon Roller, which can't one-shot the normal Salmonids.

People seem to have a really hard time understanding the concept of verticality, and will happily run directly into aerospray-infested chokepoints repeatedly instead of taking the higher ground for an ambush.

Weird poo poo happened in my salmon run tonight. I got cornered on the beach by salmonids at low tide because I was out of ink, so I activated the inkjet with a couple seconds left in the round and was able to cruise around while the other guys messed around after the round's end. They had already super jumped back when the inkjet ran out and I returned to the beach. The game forced me into the water with 6 seconds left on the clock for the next round. Upon respawn, I super jumped back to the spawn a few seconds late for the round. I dig all the crazy contingency poo poo that Nintendo puts in their games.

Had the weirdest bug hit me last night: The game dropped the rendering of ink splashes for FPS. Had to rely on my backpack to see how much ink I had but it reminded me of ~dead space~ with UI only consumables.

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


Salmon Run, Wave 3, 10 seconds left and I'm the only one alive. Swarmed by enemies but it's high tide so not much room to run. 3... 2... Pushed to the edge where I was forced to jump off the pier, but miraculously time expired as I was coming down. Cries of Help turn to Booyah as the 4 inner tubes celebrate a shift well done.

Basically Salmon Run owns.

You buy gross miniatures, you have fucked up taste.

I got a headlamp helmet from salmon run with main ink saver and one chunk in main ink saver so I thought what the hell - I drank a saver drink and, well, now I have a three main ink saver helmet.

I got the same thing with ink resist shoes, minus the initial sub slot.

Drinks are the way to go, probably.

I think the matchmaking issues I've been seeing in Turf War are finally working themselves out. Suddenly I'm being matched with level 20ish players and not level 1's.

Also for general purpose gear I'm thinking of trying for Main Ink Saver, Sub Ink Saver, Run Speed, Squid Speed, Ink Resistance, Ink Recovery. Maybe trading Sub Ink Saver for Ninja Squid? I dunno, for now I'm more focused on making sure my gear is fresh (hope I get some snails to turn 2-slot gear into 3-slot gear)

It's completely random. I'll still get a bunch of sub 10 players and I'm level 30.

Is it just me, or do people seem to try and troll turf war a lot more. I had it happen here and there in Splatoon 1, but every single day I'll generally have a match where someone sits on the starting pad for a minute. Or they just wander around and don't even gun anything (I've seen multiple games where people are under 200 points). The worst I've seen is in one game we had a teammate swim up to a certain spot in the art academy level. He would throw a bomb into the water and just keep doing it. When I showed I saw what he was doing he then proceeded to suicide himself. The other time was 2 of my teammates and one of the other just went to the middle of moray towers and just shouted the entire match so it became a 3 on 2 and my team sucked. Is anyone else having this happen to them?

This is sort of what I meant when I was complaining about the Turf War matchmaking. Not just a level difference, but I would repeatedly have games that were actually 3v3 or 3v2 matches where multiple players just ran around or were afk. I don't seem to have that issue right now (I've played maybe 6 matches now without a player below 15ish), but perhaps that's because there's many people playing right now and I'm just getting lucky. The mode's a great casual mode when the matches are somewhat balanced.

The fog is way too dense in Salmon Run, the Sploosh-o-Matic is hilariously useless, and there's still way too much "ironic" furry art bullshit in the plaza

Otherwise this game still rules pretty hard

Edit: on second thought, maybe the curling bombs save the new gun. But maybe not.

Edit 2: do you have to wear your splatfest shirt to contribute to it? I never bothered decking it out after having habitually scrubbed it so many times.

Yeah. It happens to me a lot (I hit level 30 just by turf war and only 2 meal tickets)

When I have a match where I see someone on my team discos I just keep leaving afterwards until I get a group where it doesn't seem to happen much. It's luck of the draw, I started off with kind of bad luck with discos until I got a decent room with everyone there and then went on a 11-0 win streak.

The Splash-O-Matic is very much my poo poo. Only way it could be better would be with a Tenta Missiles special (but then it would be OP)

[Edit: yeah this is the gun for me for sure. Does enough damage to gently caress up a roller that's caught by surprise, but has some range and it practically sips ink. Throw in curling bombs for movement/escape options and splashdown as a gently caress you to the brushes and this is the perfect gun for me ]
