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.

Yea, and this one being 4 hours long obviously means this is the last chance before launch to really make sure the servers are up to the task. Nintendo is hit or miss with their online endeavors, but I really like what they've done with Splatoon. It's a win-win -- fans and skeptics can try it out before launch without having to preorder or anything, and those who do buy it enjoy pretty solid connectivity from day one.

Can GMT players play their Splatfest then wait a bunch of time and then play the US one? Can you have different regions of the same game on the same Switch?

Edit: Is it as simple as make a US/JP Nintendo ID on PC, make a new Profile on the Switch called like '[Name]US', then just link them?

Yea, all you need to do is create a JP locale Nintendo account to download the Japanese client. You can then play in their Splatfest on any account you choose.

I liked this Splatfest quite a bit. I can't stay plugged into many games for 4 hours straight these days. Of course, I'm pretty new to Splatoon; I bought the first one but sold it within 10-15 hours of play because I just couldn't get comfortable wielding the giant Gamepad around. Pro controller and (especially) split Joy-cons fixes that.

I think my favorite thing was how the plaza got neon decorated in everyone's miiverse-esque posts.

Couple things -

I quit out of the game for the first time and reloaded it, and all but one of the Fake Miiverse posts changed. Maybe quitting and reloading is the way to cycle them? They hadn't changed before I did that, and I played all day Friday and Saturday.

I bought out all the stuff in the shops, and 2 and 3 slot stuff is in stock now. I'm now wearing hi-top retro basketball shoes, a trench coat, and a hockey helmet.

Does the splattershot pro have a greater range then the tentatek one? As usual for multiplayer shooters I cant find a single gun that feels right for me. I'm weird.

I think the Pro gains a little range at the cost of firing speed, but not sure. I know the N-Zapper and Jet Squelcher (unlocks at 17 or 18) both have pretty good range, but do a little less damage. Of course, the Aerospray gets good range as well, but isn't as accurate as the others at long distances.

I've found my niche in Splattershot Pro. Now if only the people who get disconnected mid-match could get fed up with this game and shelf it, this game would be incredibly good.

Like even when a disconnect leads to a win, it still doesn't feel like a good win...

Can someone make a "How to not suck at salmon run" cheat sheet?

I know there is also a mother ship thing that I'll probably never see but if I can get basic strats for each boss/round it would really help me

It's all about playing to your current weapon's advantages, and experience helping you do that quickly. Like if you're given the Charger on a Griller round, you can help a ton going exclusively for the Griller's tongues, but you'd be hurting the team if you focused on the lil baby fish, for example. It's all pretty organic. For whatever weapon you're given, spend the first 10 seconds of warm-up thinking how it'd work well, and how it'd be wasted. This doesn't always mean offense, as the rollers are probably best keeping paths cleared for your team.

The direct says negates a single attack, no matter how strong. I really think this has changed. I don't feel like I've gotten tapped by a single bolt and then it faded,but I kinda count the hits I take and know when I'm down to my last.

I get the feeling it's one second of attacks from the moment you get hit or something like that. I've run into plenty of armored people from behind and opened fire on them, only to hear tons of PLINK-PLINK before chewing through the armor and getting those dull whack sounds.

weird Asian candy posted:

So I just popped into the game last night, did the tutorial and got thrown immediately into multiplayer with like level 15s, 16s and 20s and got absolutely destroyed. I tried to find a local mode vs AI so I could get some practice but nope, no dice. I then discovered campaign mode. Should I run campaign mode and then jump into multiplayer? I feel like that is the way to go.

Also, what are your opinions on motion control? I did the tutorial with it, wasn't sure about it so switched to non motion controls and it seemed...more difficult.

Yea, if turf war seems too intimidating right now, definitely go through the single player mode. Try all the control options you have to see what feels best -- individual Joy-cons feel quite different than when they're in the grip, or the Pro controller, or handheld mode.

Most people will recommend motion control because it offers an easier route to quick precision, it just might take a few days to click. Sensitivity settings are up to you. Don't forget that it's totally okay to use both analog and motion at the same time, or you can just pick one or the other.

My personal settings are +3 for analog, +1.5 for motion. I'll use analog for large camera movements in non-firefight areas, but as soon as I'm trying to engage someone, I face them, push Y to snap the camera, and use motion just about exclusively. YMMV, especially for weapons where precision isn't of utmost importance (e.g. rollers, brushes, buckets.)

If you're trying to ask what they normally appear as in the ingame store, the common ability of any of the rare splatnet abilities is at the bottom of the page.


Yeah, it isn't that great anymore. If enemies are right on top of your landing zone you're still boned. Drop-roll is much better now for landing into a hot zone and getting right back into the fight. Or, just let them camp your marker because you're splashing down anyway.


Ninja Squid is still very very very good. I would argue it is buffed from 1 because of lack of map awareness due to hiding the map. You can sneak up on people much more easily. Drop Roller can also be very good if you plan on jumping into trouble. Swim Speed and Move Speed are also insanely good. Respawn Punisher is going to be bad for a lot of people, but really broken for a small few.

Hell yeah Ninja Squid. Once I got a 3-slot chest with it, I've been building around it with swim speed.

About Special Power Up -- anyone know if that increases the ink output of Ink Storm or just makes it do more damage? If it's the former, I kinda wanna stack it so it just floats a giant blob across the map. It seems to be killing more, though, so I suspect it's just the latter.
