This will certainly see more use. Will have to see how it'll fare in ranked battles, but so far this is promising.

At least in my experience, I was able to defend the Tower singlehandedly against chargers and blasters in a few games and went on some killing sprees while on the tower since the range is deceptively long. The umbrella launch does 30 damage so you can do some chip damage to people shooting at the Tower then splat them.

I couldn't find as much utility for the Brella in Rainmaker, you can make ink lines using the launcher but those tend to get painted over quickly

Maybe launch it and get the carrier to tuck in behind as it goes?

It moves slightly slower than a curling bomb so the carrier would be splatted. Also the carrier is usually being shot from all sides most of the time.

In the maps with popular chokepoints (humpback pump track) I launched the brella, people took chip damage without realizing it then they were splatted easily when the team got there

My experience against brellas is so far that they whiff the first shot and then die to my splatty jr, or the umbrella breaks and then they die. High fire rate weapons run circles around them, at least for now.

I had a long day yesterday, so I kinda... snapped at yet another useless charger hanging back waaay in our territory and refusing to actually go out and, ya know, BE USEFUL?

So... I spent the last minute of the match trying to annoy him. First I swam around him squidding repeatedly. Then I got right in front of him and mashed the brush button in his face (I was an Octobrush) until I ran out of ink. Then I recharged my ink and did it again. Then the last 10 seconds I just followed him spamming "BOOYAH" constantly.

He was still in the next, several, of my matches, doing the exact same thing.

I have no problem with this

Brellas seem to have the same inking pattern as blasters without the ability to splat around corners.

I guess trading aoe damage for a shield is acceptable.

I feel like the effectiveness of the shield depends a lot on your latency, as I have been killed a number of times from the front with it up, the enemy team's weapon composition, and their ability to concentrate fire. You might as well not have it if there's a bucket or blaster killing you with shots over the shield.

Iím confused, this looks like it was an extremely close match between two evenly matched teams, with no clear weak point on either?

The dude youíre bitching about had the least kills on your team, sure, but unless itís really low (like 3) kills arenít a measure of quality in Splatoon. Or any game that doesnít have a death match mode, really.

Besides, kills aren't everything and doesn't matter at the very end. The game only cares about who accomplished the objective/who was the closest to accomplishing the objective. I've had several matches where the winning team was actually the one with the least amount of kills.

Yeah, I just saw the 5 kills and 13 deaths and didn't notice how effective the guy was at inking the zone. Oh well.

If you're using a really close range weapon and your team is floundering then its hard to be effective yourself. Close range weapons excel at ambushes but if you can't take control of the zone then you never get a chance to do that.

Kills matter in as much as taking players away from the objective matters.

Splatoon anime comic manga animation thingie

quote:

Rather than a straight up anime, CoroCoro calls the series a ďcomic animeĒ. Thatís because instead of true animation, itís more along the lines of a manga with voiced dialogue. There are bits of animation sprinkled throughout, however.

I expected very little and somehow was still disappointed.

Sure as poo poo doesn't seem like it. I hit a brella no fewer than 4 times head on with the Tri-Slosher and it didn't break.

It does, but it's an incredibly minimal increase, like maybe 10%. Not worth it.

Salmon Run always resets your rank back to 40/99 when a new period starts.
