That's the eshop redemption site. Just copy/paste all night.

Any advice for getting acclimated to the motion controls on a pro controller? Should I be using both sticks even with the motion turned on?

Thanks for the Motion controls advice I dropped the sensitivity a little bit and i'm getting in the flow more of using both sticks plus the motion controls. I'm getting stellar results with the Aerospray.

We need to have a serious discussion about what the strongest color of ink is. It's lime green by the way.

I'm getting better at aiming with the motion controls stick hybrid, still can't get the hang of the dualies though. I always spaz out during firefights and forget to roll.

I know killing someone with the brushes isn't the point but when you get the jump on someone should you not bump them with the brush and proceed to mash the shoot/melee button?

If I'm running a brush, I'm going for kills and disruption by making people chase me down, personally. If I want coverage or playing like a normal person, I'm grabbing a roller or the aerospray.

Interesting so you're a pest? You smack the enemy then run while leaving an ink trail. I need ninja swim before I can do that effectively I think.

In my head I know I shouldn't get mad at my team unless they gently caress up really blatantly (squid-jumping when it's obviously not safe, taking the rainmaker the wrong way) but in reality I can and will bark futile epithets my uncaring television screen.

I just started ranked, halfway through C-. I think there's definitely not a lot of bright players at this rank but being good means being able to adjust to that. I never equip a roller for example, almost all of my teams have at least two rollers so I don't need to run that. I also try to bring the right weapon for the map and the mode, that's a lot of fun for me personally.

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.

Today has just been depressing. It really is impossible to carry in turf war if your teammates don't know what they're doing or if they just play follow the leader. Tonight I've been stuck in games where I'll go up Moray Towers on the enemy side and sneak by- take out the usual dude that spots me... only for the ENTIRETY OF MY TEAM to squid jump to me for some bizarre reason and race to the top leaving our side and the middle totally unprotected.

Fine Inkblot I'll roll around to the enemy side and spawn camp a little while covering turf near their base. I make sure the middle is clear but one enemy sneaks by. "My team can handle one guy right?"

Wrong, that one guy is just making GBS threads on them and I was a fool to think they could handle themselves in a 3v1. By the time I get over there and splat the dude the entire enemy team is now free and each one of them is capable of wiping the 3 other goofs on my team by themselves.

Just insanely insanely frustrating

E: And for the record I'm fine with losing and I acknowledge I'm pretty mediocre in PVP modes usually but I'd really like to feel like I had a team capable of helping me out sometimes. I know a handful of them are probably kids but maan.

Don't take Turf War seriously as a competitive person myself I know that's not easy to do as losing NEVER feels good. If you're going to play Turf War set a different objective for yourself like practicing a new weapon or some poo poo like that. Def take it seriously when there's a Splatfest going down though.

There's not even a tutorial for tower control or rainmaker, which is vastly different than the 10 levels of turf war new players will have been playing

Yeah it's pretty funny being in a match where you can clearly see your teammates playing as if it's TURF WAR. Another good one is a player obtaining the rain maker and not knowing they need to take it to the enemy base.

Yeah my weapon of choice is the .50 GAL against Aerospray users. If they get close to me chances are i'm splatted but that's fair, and they usually don't. Try the Aerospray in ranked, you will be incredibly disappointed.

Why? The .52 GAL kicks all sorts of rear end and is really well balanced. If you get the jump on me i'm dead.

Pro tips pubbies don't seem to get.

The more people are on the tower the faster it moves. Don't jump off just because someone else showed up on it.

Don't fire the rainmaker unless you really have to. Shooting the rainmaker puts your location on the maps and huds of the other team.

The Rainmaker is a great weapon for controlling the enemy team's approach. I don't think that's good advice at all.

Yup every brand has abilities it favors as well. This week's is Squidforce. It has a high chance to roll ink resistance which is very good. Scrub it after you get the first ability, it's faster that way.

It is, Crayon Blaster has spectacularly low damage from what I can tell. I believe the trade off is increased fire rate, not sure.

If I use a drink ticket for ink resistance on my Squidforce Splatfest tee will that stack the probability of ink resistance?

I don't want to blame it on lag but I definitely feel like my opponents are faster than me when i'm playing very late at night. When a gun takes four shots to kill but I somehow keep magically dying at two it's kind of bullshit.

I really wish fewer weapons had Point Sensor and had a splat/suction grenade instead. I've never had a situation where it's been useful.

edit: Out of curiosity, does the Olive Hoodie still exist, or is at as I suspect and the new Hero Replica uniform is it?

Yeah the way they "balanced" guns by giving them a niche sub weapon sucks. Basically anything remotely capable of killing from the 3 line range will either have point sensor or mist.
