I'll make your ass sense.

I really like the new map, because it's by far the hardest map to tell who won a turf war on just by viewing it at the end of the match.

I have the US version of the game and my friend has a digital JAP copy. We can play together usually without issue, but have not been able to play together during Splatfest, even though there is some overlap between times that it is active.

What gives? I have a feeling i will not like the answer.

Holy Hell.

Matchmaking might have gone completely to hell becaus of Splatfest.

According to the Nintendo app my 50 games before Splatfest were 27 wins / 23 losses, and during Splatfest I have lost 7 of the last 10 games.

It's a smaller sample, so hopefully it's a fluke.

Splatfests are zoned out by region. Also the acronym you want is "JPN".

Remember level is an indicator of play time, not skill, learn from your splats and think of what you could've done differently. Sometimes it will be nothing, but often you'll gain from it. If there's a particular weapon you have trouble fighting against, use it for a bit to fully learn its strengths and weaknesses. Also ask for tips on improving specific things you'll get a ton of advice thrown at you in this thread.

Oh I've been doing ok, the only dangerous bits for me are those grates above the shifting zones I can throw that seeker bomb up there and then splat them when they get down but boy is ink management important for that.

Thanks actually I ended up switching out of the dualies because I was getting splattered a lot by long distance weapons. I ended up skimming the thread during work and chose the Aerospray MG a couple rounds ago. This combined with my shoes which have 3x Ink Recovery has me roaming the map just spraying ink. So far so good just as long as I avoid combat

It's so regions can have branded splatfests; like in Splatoon 1 for example NA got Transformers / Spongebob themed splatfests while Japan got ramen and weird weeby poo poo

I used my mighty octobrush to wreck fools in the name of Team Ketchup until my hands cramped and my battery ran out, got halfway through Defender. A pretty good night of embarrassing team jizz. It's good to have splatfest back.

SeANMcBAY posted:

Seriously.

Why the gently caress is Grizzco open? This is the one time it makes sense to be closed.

For people like that one dude in the Splatoon 1 thread that would always make walls of text cryposting about splatfest every single time it was on, I guess.
