Are people quitting midgame more often recently? I haven't played in a while, but just came out of 4 games in a row where someone on my team quit out and hosed us over (including one where only 3 people showed up during the intro team scene).

Throw yourself in the water. It takes like four seconds for the animation to finish, and you're not considered dead until it ends.

Think of it this way. There's always gonna be somebody who just turned thirteen.

edit: On another note, there has been some discussion in the past on the proper terminology for a certain celebratory action in Splatoon 2, and I need to inform you that the proper term is "squidkidding" because it is technically accurate and family friendly.

Any term can be family friendly if you lie about the etymology! Saves you the trouble of coming up with new terms.

Practice, of course. I find the best use for it is to clear out a single small area.

i do a thing with my stingray where i fire at a squid, if i lose track after i get a few hits in then i quickly squid to see them, reaim and start firing again until they get splatted, then i do the same thing to my next target. might do a squid/fire/squid/fire several times so long as the stingray is active

however if i get splatted by the same squid later in the match, i get squidbagged cause they think im bming them, which i guess is what they interpreted it as :(

also my favorite thing when i have a charged stingray is when someone on my team marks a bad guy with a point sensor (do the stingray dance)

Playing from behind in Splat Zones is an absolutely miserable experience. Once a team gets ahead, they pretty much stay ahead. Taking the zone back from the other team is like pulling teeth. Easily my least favorite of the ranked modes.

So is it just me, or are all high ranked matches just two teams taking turns poking eachother with grenades until someone gets impatient and dies? This poo poo is lame and the autobomb is stupidly annoying for how easy it is to set and forget.

If by high rank, you mean S+, then yes, matches are very very passive. Mistakes are very costly there so people tend to play passively until the other team fucks up. A rank is a blood bath. S+ rank, considerably less so. Kill counts in the single digits tends to be really common there.

I think the problem you're running into is that Sturgeon Shipyard and Starfish Mainstage are in rotation right now, and the zone gives a very effective high ground advantage on both of those maps.

My favourite maps for Splat Zones are The Reef (the zone is vulnerable low ground) and Inkblot Art Academy (it works a lot like Kelp Dome from the first game where no one player can see the whole zone at once). You get a lot more trading of control on those maps.

Exploration is ill-advised.

So it seems like Inklings tend to be overgrown children/stereotypes of young people who can barely be arsed paying attention to anything except what's fresh and trendy, and happen to have a favourite hobby of gladiatorial combat especially to settle petty arguments, while Octarians are mad scientists who come up with all kinds of fancy technology but can't think of any better way to power it than to steal glowfish and plug them into over-capacity power boards.

Stop getting on the tower at the beginning of the match when the coast isn't clear. Oh look, now you're dead and the enemy team gets to push the tower unopposed.

Get off the goddamn tower if there's more than one person on it. There is absolutely no reason why more than one person should be on the tower unless the entire enemy team is dead. The tower is nothing more than a death trap. The fact that it moves slightly faster (which doesn't even make that much of a difference in most cases) when more people are on it is absolutely not worth the risk of more than one person dying on it. The spike isn't gonna be able to protect everyone. Only one person should ride the tower while the rest of the team clears a path for the tower.

If any of you were wondering why people aren't getting on the tower, that's why.
