I think Blizzard got it right with Hanzo, he's a sniper with a relatively low skill level so the snipebros can play a sniper but actually contribute to the team at the same time.

The real solution would be to not make any chargers available until, say, level 15, but it's too late for that now.

Hanzo is one of the reasons I quit Overwatch. He was useless on every team so Blizzard gave him arrow hitboxes the size of logs. Except peoples till didn't know how to contribute as him so Hanzo was still useless, but now you got to enjoy randomly getting one-shot by a massive arrow you couldn't see coming. So then Blizzard took away his huge hitboxes, and Hanzo went back to being useless. And then in another patch they gave him back the massive hitboxes again and around that time I realized Blizzard had no loving idea how to balance their game.

Well yeah that's the point of the weapon. It's meant for tossing ink onto/from/over ledges.

yes but being able to do that while also still being able to do all the things that make other weapons good means it is a very good weapon

They're making Pikmin 4 for Switch, it was announced a while ago.

Yeah I recall it was stated the new Pikmin was almost done even before the Switch released. I'm expecting its being held back so Nintendo can keep doing this "one awesome game" a month thing which so far has been amazing

Probably was the good move releasing Arms when they did. I immediately bought it up because it was the first original game out for the Switch that seemed interesting. Now I'm like gently caress that game, gimme Splatoon 2

One thing they should have added was a transmutation option with shells to take the main ability+all current subs and slap it into a different look. Because I don't really like the soccer jersey but drat that's a sick piece of bonuses

Anyone who uses gear they don't like just for stats is playing wrong. Fashion is the most important part of the game (unless you're farming chunks).

I double dog dare any of the goons here who are saying git gud to create a smurf account and slum it down in C rank for a bit and then still come back saying "the problem is 100% you"

Because it's not. It was easy for you to rise because you got the game release day, poopsocked it to level 10, played through C and B with other poopsockers like yourself who know how to play the game because you all poured 100+ into Splatoon 1. Meanwhile, the players who were/are bad at the game that were at C when you spend through ranked are still down here in C, making GBS threads it up for the rest of us who took our time getting to level 10.

Challenge accepted! I'll have to grind out to level 10 first but I'll get right on it. Is it fine to just get out of C in any one mode or do I need to do all three?

Fair warning, the queues and matchmaking SUCK at S due to smaller playerbase. I have basically stopped ranked and just hosed around in salmon and turf for the past week and am hoping the matchmaking has gotten better (or just isolate my ranked time to primetime).

50% gain on gear XP is still worth it, the odds of getting what you were actually going for aren't reduced much.

Shedding those useless arms and legs to go EVEN FASTER!


Started grinding my smurf from level 1. I'm not really a gun user but I've just been using the splattershot jr. so far because why not. Won every single one of my games so far and have double digit splats in most of them. Once I get to level 10 we'll see how C goes, by then I will have switched to a weapon that's a little more comfortable for me.

edit: Since a lot of people jumped on me I'd like to clarify that I'm only doing this in response to a challenge to prove ELO hell isn't a thing and that if I could skip grinding 10 levels of turf war I would, and also that this isn't a brag but rather meant to reinforce my point that it isn't hard to win even with weak players on your team if you really are personally better than the average players around you.

Splattershot Jr is completely capable of carrying hard with effective coverage, up close kills, and the best special.

Definitely agree! One thing I like about Splatoon is that you can contribute and make it far without even ever changing your weapon as long as you play well.
