Perhaps you too should be more accepting of their cultures

This. You may get some bad losing streaks, but over time you'll hover around where you belong. The other team has 4 chances of getting drooling idiots, your team has 3 chances to get drooling idiots. This means that unless you too are a drooling idiot, your team will have a greater chance of winning. as you'll have fewer drooling idiots. Maybe your drooling idiots are so much worse than theirs that you wind up losing. Maybe this happens multiple times in a row. But statistically you'll keep moving up in the ranks until you get to the point where you are the drooling idiot, then you'll start dropping back down to where you belong.

If I throw my ink mist, but do no damage, does it count as an assist?

There's an extra graphical indicator that pops up when a teammate splats an opponent and you get credit for an assist.

You might raise an eyebrow at the consumption of monkey or ape meat, but you probably wouldn't consider it cannibalism. That said, Splatoon has a weird fondness for throwing in seafood (see: calamari rings in single player)

Octolings are allowed in Inkopolis its just that most of them are dumb assholes and would rather hang out in their lovely valley instead. Inkopolis doesn't have enough floating platforms for them.

Emergency rations obviously.






Alternatively, you expect inklings to focus on something and think about things when they could party instead?

I'm kind of hoping it never happens. Or, Nintendo lets you play an octoling in the firing range only or something. That'd be a chuckle.

e: I'm expecting them to eventually drop a hat that looks like the octoling hair at some point though.

This came up in an interview and the answer was that Inklings don't care what you are as long as your style is fresh enough.

quote:

The interviewer asked if Marina is an Octoling, but they all dodged the question and Nogami simply said, “She has extraordinary hair”. Nogami also noted that Inklings are not paying attention to this too much. Inoue said that the Inklings don’t care about appearances if they are doing something fresh.

Somewhere in the lore it apparently claims that Octolings largely are unaware of what Octavio and the Octarians are doing, and he's some rogue sect harboring a grudge from the Great Turf War.

That would explain why Inkopolis has an army of...one ancient guy, two women, and two literal children. Inklings don't see Octolings as a threat?

I think Octolings might get their own update since they didn't gave out their gear after beating story mode this and I haven't seen Splatoons 1 Octoling Gear and Octoshot (which was in Splatoon 2 Story mode).

The final boss isn't as hard as the first game because its not a weird boss/level hybrid. There's no way to fall to your death, which is the main way the boss in the first game killed me.

I thought it was a thing that pretty much everyone was oblivious to Capn Cuttlefish and DJ Octavio's private little war, except for those directly involved in it. I mean nobody in Inkopolis really cared that the Great Zapfish disappeared twice, and (Sunker Scrolls spoiler) all the Octarians thought that the final battle of Splatoon 1's Hero mode was just a surprise concert.
