I GOT CRABBY ABOUT PHONE GAMING


So the people who just sit at the spawn point and just run around not shooting at definitely , at least some of the time, are doing it on purpose to grind out the splatfest since it doesn't matter if they truly win or not. They are just assholes along for the ride.

I'm psyched to hear others have been online over cellular data, that it seems to use a small amount of data, really, and that they did it during a splatfest without it meaning they lost every time. poo poo yeah. That gives me confidence.

I haven't been having dpad issues yet, but I know that sort of thing can be very frustrating. I seem to hit crouch a lot by accident with the joycons.

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to contribute that well because I had to play over cellular data, but I went on a roll for my ketchup bros. Got to around 1950 rating before becoming King and trounced on mayo constantly. Had about 2:1 win loss. Much better showing on my part compared to the first splatfest where I got around 1650 rating.

It seems that worse bandwidth works in your favor. It felt like my shots were landing a lot more when I was playing out of town on a poo poo connection than when I got back home.

It depends on the weapon, brushes and chargers definitely benefit. I just played a round with a charger that definitely had a high ping, though if they had artificially increased their ping (usually done by running torrents in a networked PC) I don't know.

I just realized GrizzCo is in today because Mr. Grizz doesn't give inkling holidays off.

Edit: Don't Pearl and Marina factor in how much each team won into the final calculation? It doesn't show immediately but it will matter tomorrow.

1 point for popularity, 1 point for winning more regular battles, 1 point for winning more team battles. Percentages don't matter the way they did in the first game.

Sad to hear ketchup has the numbers. Hopefully us adults with superior tastes in condiments are clowning on people with the pallettes of Aidens.

Even if they were tallied up, they wouldn't affect anything, because every mirror match is one win for ketchup and one loss for ketchup.

We need to start a DO NOT INK THE SPAWN campaign because the constant stream of people telling others to ink the spawn is making it so my entire team will spoend the first minute of every game meticulously inking every last inch of the spawn while ignoring the rest of the map.

It gets me so worked up to see my team acting like complete fools and I can't do anything about it

You ink the spawn and an alternate route if you get splatted, why can't those fools UNDERSTAND?
