I could read between the lines. They wanted to see the alien.

I like the Japanese personalities laid out there because it sets up a dynamic that's really different from Callie and Marie, and also emphasizes that Marina's a newcomer to the squid world. Also, her body language matches that more.

They completely changed Marina's AND Pearl's personality. I am not happy with it honestly.
Pearl in jp is much more awesome, cute, more feminine and peppy in a positive way than the english bratty one we're getting.(probably why we're getting shittons of fanart from the jp side...) And Pearl is awesome for accepting Marina, who is an Octoling which are like sworn enemies of Inklings. Girl is open minded.
Marina is actually polite, shy, and an endearing ditz genius instead of rude. She often forgets stuff and is very scatterbrained and adorable. If anything I'd say she's kinda moe in personality in a sexy DJ appearance. What the hell happened?!
And they totally missed out on the senpai kouhai dynamic the two has in jp version, Pearl actually seems like she was, leading Marina and showing her the ropes.
TLDR; Yes, I am very salty about the personality changes.

Edit: To clarify, I can read japanese and played both jp and US splatfests.

Please check your abbreviations. "jp" is considered offensive to nihonjin (Japanese people.) The proper nomenclature is "jap".

Incidentally, that amount of "Pearl is a garbage baby" stuff I have seen has dropped a lot. And it's ok, I don't want Pearl to be just rehashed D.va. She also has massive forehead.

One thing that annoys me about Marina is that when Grizz co. ad comes, she always says that Pearl is shilling. But it's the loving sponsor. Pearl actually does shill a lot of products but this is their sponsor. Whyyyy. Thank you for listening.

Honestly my only concern was that Treehouse would have gotten lazy and turned Marina into Marie 2.0 from what I saw from the splatfest game lines. Though that obviously isn't the case now that the game has been out for a while. I'm honestly pretty fine with it.

Marina isn't rude! It's just a natural reaction to Pearl's dumbassery.

Honestly her teasing feels very older sibling-y, although I'm sure they're probably the same age

People in Profreshional still have a strange aversion to killing Flyfish, even after a month of play. Is their thought process that you should just dodge them and focus on more important targets?

Depends on the situation, but there have been plenty of times where a FlyFish spawns pretty close to the edge of the map with 40 seconds left in the round and I decide to simply focus on killing all the mobs closest to the bin and pocketing the eggs while avoiding the airstrikes and simply surviving.

I think so, but that's me. Unless I've got a bomb super or they're really conveniently located, I skip them -- there is just too much poo poo spawning at Profreshional to worry about saving up ink for a bomb and aiming up, just to take out half of it. It helps that they're one of the easier bosses to avoid completely.

On the topic of salmon run, please tell me that people learn to bomb Maws eventually. I'm almost out of Overachiever and like every fourth game I see someone else do it.

Or at least, acknowledge it exists because I'd be fine with everyone ignoring it if people didn't always inevitably being eaten by it.

The biggest problem with Profresh seems to be Mothership. Sometimes the weapon selection is just trash for it (you need a ton of range) but it seems like people don't understand you need to shoot down the crates before they land. Also USE YOUR SPECIALS. I'm loving sick of getting swarmed by small frys when trying to finish off a griller while the guy with the splashdown just lets everyone die.

People are very good about bombing maws at profreshional. It actually becomes a bit of a problem; instead of letting your lure maws back to the basket people will bomb it the first time it pops up at the edge of the map. Which helps if you're being overwhelmed but most of the time just robs you of 3 easy eggs one person can cash in.

The endgame leaderboards in ranked matches are sorted by current ELO, which doesn't change based on your performance in the current match, so the order of the list doesn't really matter as much as the k:d ratio.

Marina's being sarcastic because Pearl's shilling is a half-hearted "Go work for them ".

You can tell because if you're on a big winning streak you'll always be top ranked at the end of the match, regardless of how good you do. Same goes for if you carry your team after a long losing streak you'll still be on the bottom.

A lot of people don't realize that sting ray can be the best special in Salmon Run if used properly. Sad.

Every time I got glowflies tonight, I stood by the basket and spammed this way. One of the times the whole team joined me after about fifteen seconds and we got 30+ eggs. Another time they didn't and we nearly wiped and barely got 20 eggs. Dudes with the glowflies kept running off on their own like idiots. I wish there were custom options for things to say with like, left and right on the dpad

Edit: what's ELO? And also what determines the "power" level that's displayed at the beginning of ranked matches?

ELO is your matchmaking rating, or in a more crude way of describing it, how good the game thinks you are. The average of all the player's ELOs is what displays the squid power level at the beginning of the match.

Ranked score used for matchmaking. Splatoon calls it "power" and you can see it visualized during the start of ranked matches or during league/splatfests.
