So I'm wondering because it's not in the OP, but is league battle the only to play consistently with a friend on a team? You can't team up for turf battles, right?

You can't and it's the goddamn worst loving thing

I know I keep complaining (to counteract I will say I loving LOVE THIS GAME and I'm level 12 already and just played my first Salmon Run games while voice chatting with the app and it was a blast and I adore Splatoon 2 ughhhh) but it really is so disappointing. I can't think of any reason why you shouldn't be able to team up with your friends and go into turf war together. It's something every single goddamn person wanted.

I have to imagine this has something to do with nintendo wanting turf war to be the most casual friendly mode, not that I agree with it.

How do you actually acquire the hero weapons in multiplayer? I've beaten every level with the Hero Shot, but the replica isn't in my inventory and I don't know how to get it.

I tested it, they do not. Recolor Splatoon 1 amiibo give the same stuff as normal Splatoon 1 amiibo.

Callie and Marie do each give different gear though.

You can go into turf war together and sometimes you play together and sometimes you play against each other. I think that's cool and good?

If you want to play together as a pro team you can play league...

i know its disappointing, but i feel its the right way to go about it because a team thats even remotely coordinated is going to stomp a team of randos. im still getting vietnam-style flashbacks from playing overwatch in quickplay as a master-level solo queuer against the 6-stack grandmaster death squad (aussie players you know which 6-stack it is, cod drat pepperpig)

That was it. The hero weapons are cheaper than their regular counterparts, so that's nice.

They could match sets with similar sets but then you have to try to match levels/ranks also and weapons. At that point it could get restrictive and we don't want to go back to worldwide matching.

That all said it probably would work fine and yeah turf war is super casual central, ranked is hardcore compared to that far as the kinds of players you find.

In Salmon Run I have trouble with ink management. I don't have enough ink to throw a bomb when I need it because I've been shooting all the little salmon, and the flying missile guy is the worst boss because I keep getting cut off when I run from the missiles

I expected a reward for getting all the collectibles in singleplayer, does the book actually do anything?

I'm killing people pretty decently with the inkbrush, the lack of lagged out Japanese players makes a huge difference.

The inkbrush is all about living on the edge and winning fights you shouldn't win through sheer force of will and mashing. It's good and fun.

I'm sad it hasn't got the sprinkler this time. What's up with that? I guess they didn't like the balance of that combination? I still hope a brush variant will come along that has one.

Zoran posted:

Addendum: it also does kick rear end, especially when you're put in a lobby with like five rollers and ink brushes, all of whom know no tactics other than charging straight at the enemy.

Splashdown is one of the more effective specials.

Yeah same. Also while I wish there was a Turf War teams only mode, I'm so glad it's 100% solo players. Getting rolled by clans is never fun.

Game is so good.

Having just used them in the testing range: ink brush swings faster, octo brush does 40 damage instead of 30. I think the ink brush kills faster from full health.

The first slosher that unlocks is perfect for me. Tenta missles and suction bomb are both good. I might end up just using this unless the one at 15 has curling bomb or something. I really like the tenta missles.

Inkbrush is weaker but swings faster. It's more of a melee assassination tool - come up behind someone, mash the hell out of ZR then dash away. The inkbrush is also faster when it comes to its paint dash, it's very easy to just bug out with it. I think the inkbrush maybe paints a bit more as well?

Because there was a maws right under me that kept showing up every time I got in position to hit the drivers with it. Maws will happily jump high enough to snap you out of a splash down.
