Yea nah, doesn't work, ranked is loving retarded randoms too and elo hell is C-, but that is where I'm supposed to be as it seems. (also there is no "YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!", this is a team effort, and if you're paired with Aerosplat MG retards who still think they are hot poo poo with their curling bomb spam in ranked, you are SOL)
At least the matches in ranked are over in unter a minute, but on the flip side you get diddly squat.

My w/l ratio is now 18/32, good loving matchmaking this.

I haven't even played Moray Towers since getting the game somehow.

I really want something that has stealth jump. I keep checking Annie's store on the app, checking every inkling in the plaza and I haven't seen one piece of gear with it yet. I even have the full amiibo ninja set that stupidly doesn't have it on any of the pieces.

I have never in any multiplayer game lost so consistently as this one. Very bizarre.

Edit another 6 straight stomp losses. Maybe I'm like so bad I'm the cause, makes you think.

If it helps the Stealth Jump isn't that great anymore. Yeah you are less obvious, but if there is anyone within range to do something about it then it is kind of ineffectual.

The biggest benefit is not having them know exactly when you are landing.

Yeah it's an AOE indicator now, you're still gonna get splatted if you're anywhere near a contentious point.

It's called a hassle, sweetheart..



I played my first (and only, to date) ranked game last night. It was the zone-control one and about ten seconds in poo poo just started happening. Some kind of weird countdown of points and teams losing control and both teams are splatting poo poo in a tiny area, all of which made for a supremely confusing experience for someone who had never seen this game mode before. I should probably read up on these modes or something because

I should probably read up on these modes or something because

In Splat Zones, each team has a counter that starts at 100. If you can paint most of the zone in your colour, then your team will gain control of the zone, it will flash-fill with your team's ink, and your counter will start ticking down. If neither team has a decisive majority of coverage, that's when you get the "We/They Lost Control!" message, and neither team's counter will tick down until someone reclaims the zone. The game ends when one team can hold the zone long enough to get their counter down to zero, or when time is up (in which case the winner is whoever got their counter lower).

A couple other rules:
-If a map has multiple separate zones, you need to control all of them simultaneously.
-When the zone changes hands, the team that lost control of it will have a penalty added to their counter, corresponding to the spread between the teams. This penalty doesn't count for scoring purposes, but that team has to burn through it before their main counter will start ticking down again.
-If the trailing team has control when timer runs out, the game will go into overtime. As long as that team can hang on to the zone, they have a chance for a come-from-behind victory. The game will end either as soon as they lose control, or when they surpass the other team.

I got 24 during a splatfest with the prenerf luna blaster. I boxed in three members of the opposing team for a minute and a half and somehow my team was unable to outink a single roller so we still lost.

So what are everyone's favourite and least favourite new maps so far?

The Reef is probably my least favourite, yet the app says it's the one I've played the most so far. JOY. I'm not a massive fan of the fitness one either. I think it's because these are the two where I've found that if you start to lose early on you're usually hosed forever.

On the other hand, I really like the Art Academy. I'm just now realising I thought the Shipyard and Starfish Mainstage levels were the same thing, but I think I like them both. Pump Track is ok.

Also re the two old maps, Port was always a favourite and I still love it now, while I never used to like Towers but it's a lot better with the rails/curling bomb special.

ALSO I needs more tokens, how I get them

Splashdown is pretty rad, yes. The Dualies are also nice, there's a chance they may take over my bucket love.

Wal-Mart came through for me today. They had 3 consoles when my other two stops didn't have any in stock.

Haven't played on the new maps enough to form a solid opinion, but Port Mackrel is the worst. I always hated it in Splatoon. I'd say it was the worst map in the game but Arrowana Mall existed.

They should put Kelp Dome back in ASAP.

We spent 90% of the match with the tower in their space. My teammates were managing that, I was flanking everyone constantly since they were coming off the spawn of ..uh the map with the bridge over the dip... straight to the tower coming up the ramp, so their whole left side was exposed and I was making sure they didn't do anything smart.

Course someone got me and then they pushed all the way to ours and actually took the lead with :30 to go or so. Which prompted me to go on a spree to not let a certain victory go to poo poo as they do sometimes, if you look at the scores we only won by 1 point.
