Not gonna name names, but a while back i got matched in salmon run with someone from this thread and not only did they never booyah back, they stood perfectly still at the end of each wave and quite frankly it was disturbing

In a field of green a flower grows,
like my love for you it blooms.
In a clouded sky the sun is high,
shining on a salmon run.
Then when winter comes and petals fall,
and this lonely flower is bare,
I know come spring the weather will bring,
sweet times and love in the air.
Then when she arrives I will not need,
a bouquet of orchids of blue,
right beside a salmon run,
right beside a salmon run.

When the summer breeze
blows through the trees,
and the robins sing their tune,
I seem to recall a sleepy dream,
scented like a salmon run.
Then when she arrives I will not need,

Scented like a salmon run.
Scented like a salmon sun.
Scented like a salmon run.



I hope this helps explain.

Maybe the Splatoon demo was a huge success that will earn a couple more splatfests.
Maybe Splatoon 3 will get delayed by the pandemic and they'll try and mantain the userbase loyal with splatfests.

The Splatoon team and Animal Crossing New Horizons team are the same, and they got done with the latter a good while ago. If Splatoon 3 even started development, we won't be seeing it for a long time.

Could be for the Switch depending on how long the console sticks around though.

Maybe they'll pull a BoTW and release it for Switch AND whatever the next system is. Though I guess for a multiplayer game that would only make sense if it worked that you could play against players using either version of the game.

Level is irrelevant to skill level, as there as a separate unseen rank that determines your matchmaking. Increase in level gain gets you access to new weapons faster, and after that, you get a free sea snail every level.

So, getting my noob face smashed by several star level players means that i'm actually somewhat competent and not that the matchmaking is totally busted?
Now that I think of it, I started encountering hi lvl sniper monsters after a long rear end winning streak.

Correct. Sometimes, the MM screws up, but that's every game. Once I was playing Rocket League with some rando, and we got put up against two literal Season 6 Champions, complete with special titles. Generally, though, you'll be put with players of your same skill level. Even if you see a person who's level is 48*, that could just mean you're just as good as him; he's just been there for 150 more hours.

I love the short matches, because getting my rear end kicked in TF2 was twenty or thirty minutes of suffering but a bad round in in Splatoon 2 is three minutes and done.

The scary part is there is a level beyond that where the snippers mostly disappear.

I reckon a lot of games are like that. Also for a moment I thought I was in a TF2 thread for some reason.

I feel like a lot of weapons are more useful in certain game modes. I certainly use more blasters in Tower.

I just picked up this game after trying the demo and am liking it a lot so far.
Just have a quick question, when it says you lose your pay grade and keep your title after a Salmon Run event is over, they are only talking about the point multiplier and not the experience point bar counting toward the next job title right?
I am sitting on 90/100 xp to the next job title and the thing ends in less than 2 hours so just want to be sure it won't get reset after the event is over.

your xp bar will reset back to 40/100, unless youre above profreshional 100 where itll reset to 100, 200, 300 or 400 depending on where your rank is when the rotation ends

Since this is a global splatfest, we'll see what the result will be this time around when ketchup power isn't confined to regional barriers.

So I bought the game right after the last splatfest so this will be my first. What do you do exactly? Itís just turf war but you get those luscious sea urchins as a reward?

Pretty much, you get more for each rank you obtain and you earn points towards rank by completing matches with bonuses for turf inked, wins and if your side wins the splatfest you get additional urchins for that.

Feels too soon imo. I want the next Splatoon game to be semi open world and single player only. Those videos of people getting out of boundaries in various areas really gave me some ideas.

The more you and your teammates match (gear, weapons, etc) you get an additional multiplier at the end of the round for more points.
