I prefer ice cream to cake, so I joined the ice cream team.

I likely won't be able to play the Splatfest anyway since I'll be away.

Same. These super limited demos are retarded because in most cases those who are following the game enough to know when they're happening are buying the game anyway.

The testfires were primarily server stress tests, though. I think this is the same sort of deal, just dressed up with some extra marketing hype.

Ah ok, that makes a lot more sense.

I'm a casual scrub and I'm going to have fun playing splatoon 2 online

I don't know if I'm more excited for splatoon 2 for the game or because I'll finally have another game for my switch.

Playing the Japanese splatfest and I have no idea what I'm doing but this is Hella fun and I'm loving it.

Anyone know how much mobile data this takes up? About to embark on a 4 hour coach ride that coincides with the European splat fest and it would be kickin' rad if I could pass the ride playing splatoon.

Are motion controls really the optimal way to play? I cannot stand motion controls in any way whatsoever.

Seems like on US you either stomp or get stomped. Was having much closer games on the JP and EU servers earlier.

I'm glad I found out now that vertical paint doesn't count because I spent a lot of time in the demo painting vertical walls

Do we know yet if Ranked Battle is available straight away or do you have to level up first?

You gotta be level 10 to play Ranked Battles!

So how do the shops work? Are different clothes available at random times or do they not change until you've bought what's available?

Different clothes at random times. They rotate with the map changes.

Ok, thanks. So it's worth buying whatever is available at the time?

So has it always been the case with splatoon that you can usually tell who's going to win a game after the first 15 seconds?

Frankston
Jul 27, 2010



The answer is hot sauce, but I'll go with mayo out of those two

My only complaint with Splatoon 2 is it doesn't go to Off The Hook to announce the new stages as they rotate, it just goes "MAPS HAVE CHANGED".

Good, because having to scroll through that every two hours would get extremely tiresome.

Thermal ink doesn't seem to do anything? I've had it equipped now for several hours and I've not been able to see any enemies I've inked behind walls or anything.

Same, but not loving it. Think I'll give it a few days to normalise. Salmon Run is good fun in the meantime

I'm trying to get gyro controls, but it's weird and slow going. Some rounds I'll be on it and kick rear end, then the next round I'll forget how to look up and down and run around like a clueless moron.

Frankston

I seem to maintain about a 50/50 win/loss ratio for every mode except splat zone, where I've won maybe twice in about thirty games.

Frankston

I changed my motion controls to max sensitivity and it actually feels a lot better now.

Also holy poo poo are there some mouthbreathers on salmon run.

Just had a rainmaker match where my team refused to push forward with the rainmaker and just ran back towards our base whenever we had it. loving hell.

Also, does turf war ever show up in ranked?

Frankston
Jul 27, 2010



Huh, ok. There's the incentive to play regular battles then I guess.

Frankston

Maybe I'm too impatient but it's painful how long it takes after a match is over to get into a new one.

I'm just used to overwatch I guess. Match finishes, esc, leave game, queue for next one in about 5 seconds

This seriously plays and feels so much better for me now I've whacked motion sensitivity to full. Anyone struggling to get a feel for it like I was, maybe give it a try.

Can you really not leave matchmaking once you enter?

No. Sit, and wait. Maybe look at stuff on your phone whilst you wait.

Unless you're using the app in which case you cant, haha.
