Pro-tip for motion controls: if you have the Joy-Con straps on, for the love of god take them off. So much better grip without.

Jump only to safe teammates. The enemy will get a big indicator of you landing and will kill you as soon as you land. Conversely if you have a charged super punch ult you can use it mid super jump and it's a great way to tell jump campers to get hosed

My team's at 1920 and all that does as far as I can tell is make it think FOREVER when finding a match and then match you up against like 1700s anyways.

It's just ELO rating for the duration of the splatfest, and I think it applies to individuals. They use it for matchmaking somehow.

A good habit for new players to get used to doing is using the the camera reorient button to make the camera face where you're looking for super fast large camera snaps followed by using the motion to fine tune your aim it's a lot faster then stick

Feels like I might miss out on Ice Cream King purely due to how long it takes to find an opposing team being on Ice Cream Team.

Only need 56 points, but if every match is going to continue to take 4+ minutes to match us with another team, it's not going to happen.

Absolutely digging this splatfest, but I wish you could be matched with other people if you don't have a full team of four.
Wife and I are looking for a fourth person if anybody wants to hop into a party.

Having a lot more fun than in the last demo. It cut me off during the tutorial so I had no idea and put it down after a few minutes. I've still only used the basic water pistol-looking thing, though. I got all the way to cake king!

e: also i ran out of batteries and i don't have a tv so i'm done for today

They probably weren't playing with them in the grip. I can't get used to separated joycons for anything but Arms.
