Are motion controls really the optimal way to play? I cannot stand motion controls in any way whatsoever.

Yes unless you use a roller. You'll be at a massive disadvantage otherwise.

Sorry to the guys that I'm teamed up with. I keep getting kicked due to lovely router.

I was really having to wait forever to find matches as Ice Cream, because it took about 40 seconds for it to decide to just make it ice cream vs ice cream. I deleted my save data, rejoined as cake and there was basically no waiting after that. Cake is the superior food.

For those of you struggling with the motion control, try these settings:
Motion Control Sensitivity: -3
Sensitivity: 1.5

If it's working out for you, you might want to tweak the motion control sensitivity up to -2.5

Don't believe the motion control propaganda, you'll do just fine with the stick alone, with a bonus of not getting carpal tunnel from waggling like an idiot to shoot someone

I just turn slightly for fine adjustments. If you're wagging then you're doing it wrong.

The motion controls would be perfect if I could also use the stick for Y axis, motion is great for fine-tuning

If you have the Inkjet and you're on Art Blot Academy, what I like to do is, when it's about ten seconds left on the clock, I run to the right of the center and use the Inkjet to paint up the one-way slope towards the enemy base. Get that little extra bit of ink in before the tally.

This is specifically a splatfest, so its trying to mach teams and pair opposites if it can.

It'll be better normally outside spatfests.

splatoon 1 was able to do 2/3/4 player lobbies with randos filling in the gaps, it just feels like a step back.

Another thing to remember about not using motion is that this game doesn't have auto aim like other duel stick shooters so it's pretty lovely to aim.

Man, I can already tell my muscle memory is going to be a bitch to retrain between the right stick being below the buttons now, the jump being mapped to B rather than X, and the new map to Super Jump mechanics. Besides that, game owns bones and I can't wait to get the full game next week and splat some toons with my goon brethren.

All the ultimates are somehow more fun to use and much cooler while also being less powerful and frustrating to get attacked by than the splat 1 supers.

Great balance.

It's probably because solo and team matches are part of splatfest scoring and a team that has a solo queue fill would inherently have a communication disadvantage vs a normal 4 stack.

Yeah, I hope any of the ones we haven't seen yet are also like this because some of the specials in the original were just infuriating to be on the other side of.
