      The doomposters were right all along. Nobody gives a shit about splat anymore. Hype is deadzo until we get some news. Grizzco charger in a few days should breathe some life around here, but these threads might still be over.

        i cant even think of what another ranked mode would be that doesn't overlap too heavily with an existing one.

        >what if capture the flag but with only 1 flag that starts in the middle and you push the flag into their base so it gets harder the further you go
        so obvious everyone gets this far
        >but it's a kart
        >but it's a weapon
        great. thats 2 modes down
        >what if capture the flag but with a million flags
        fuck clam blitz

        >what if king of the hill but splatoon themed
        actually the only cool mode

        what else can you possibly do here? I don't see what other mode you can have that meaningfully distinguishes itself from these modes. like maybe a splat zones map with multiple rotating splat zones but... you don't really have maps big enough to support that unless half the zones are right next to one or the other team's spawns and thats not very fun

      I mean... should they actually add another one? There's already 5 modes counting turf war, which all have different considerations for map and weapon balance, and every ranked mode is competing with the others for rotation time.

      What would you even spin it off into?

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        A lot, I think. The series a jumble of sports, shooting, platforming, fashion, music, some graffiti, and also makes little use of the octarian society or whoever is living down by the deep sea metro. Could take any of these things and expand it into something.
        Fast, stylish 3D platforming would be my first pick, could even allow it to keep the sports framing.
        My second pick would be something music related, but not necessarily a traditional rhythm game like squid beats is. Maybe something more like Gal Metal where it's more free form and you basically just have to play the instrument, or a sort of management game involving the bands. If you wanted to be really out there then that could also include a rudimentary music maker where you could put together samples to make songs which you could then port to Splat 3, but that sounds like it would be a bit too much effort.

Final boss is Craig Cuttlefish; but after you beat him, hundreds of inklings show up and you just gotta survive as long as you can against an overwhelming tide of boozler squids.

      Nintendo probably wants to be real careful about overexposure, and they're probably also a bit wary after the last time they tried spinning off a superpopular one-series franchise with Animal Crossing, it basically killed the entire amiibo line.

      Mario's already their go-to for most random stuff and they probably don't want to just lazily slap it onto something and call it a day since that could hurt the brand.

      Probably e-liter. It has a long charge time but because you can sit 500 miles away from the action you're under a lot less pressure, and it even has mines you can put down to warn you of flankers.
      Splat charger is best when you're actively moving around the field, which leaves you more open.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Splat for sure, it’s the most basic and has the least amount of downsides. E-Litre I’d say is better right now and it has more range but it’s a bit harder to use due to ink consumption and it being slow.
      Squiffer is a good choice too since it has faster charges and mid-air charges which let you play more offensively.

          Even if they are aware of the issue I have no faith it will be fixed, since the maps are just that bad. Pretty much every new map would need some major changes to be truly considered fixed, and they won't. I could see giving some of them bandaids but that's all.

      That's probably your problem. Don't drop the game for a few weeks and then expect to be as good as you were when you dropped it. Keep at it, but spread it out more, I guess? So you don't get burned out or something.

      Playing on tv and using motion control helps a ton since you can quickly move around and see where you want to shoot.

      Choice of weapons depends entirely on the gamemode you're playing, but you'll eventually figure it out what's best for you. Just remember that the game is luck based and trying to push it will only get you punished so just sit back and relax

      >I usually play Rollers, spoosh-o-matic
      Short range weapons, need to play more stealthily as most weapons outrange you. Ambush with stealth swim or go hyper aggressive with lots of swim speed
      >bloblobber
      bit of a braindead weapon but decent for turd war i guess. Weapons are a big part of performance and why it feels like youre being raped constantly.

      >perfect gear
      overrated and usually just for show, its better to have a few utility sub abilities like one of ink resistance, one of quick super jump, etc as some abilities make a noticeable difference with just one sub. Other good bang for your buck subs: one of special saver, one of bomb resistance, one of intensify action if you like squid rolls.

      Now the only other thing is muscle memory, aim, reflexes, and tactics. You can train the others just by practicing, make sure youre using gyro otherwise youre limiting yourself. Train on the dummies in the lobby, train in turf war/open etc. Id just stick one weapon or so and “master” it instead of bouncing around. Understand when to use subs and specials and what each are good at.

      The tactics part is limited due to the shitty map design at the moment, but one piece of advice I can give you is if its turf war, the last minute is most important. If its ranked modes, you cant really push the objective until youve weakened the enemy team either by splatting some people or locking down areas with well timed specials. Start with splat zone if youre overwhelmed, its the most straightforward ranked mode.

      Try not to get too discouraged and just practice practice practice. Even watching replays is helpful. Watch your own footage to analyze where you went wrong i.e. maybe I shouldnt have jumped down into that pit that was under full enemy control without reclaiming the ink first etc etc. Watch from the perspective of the players who stomp you to see what theyre doing right. Watch pro players on youtube, I suggest SRBDude, has lots of helpful tutorial vids.

        >situational awareness
        >controlling turf is far more important than you realize
        locks down areas, impedes mobility -> increases mobility of your guys. More enemy ink on screen means more opportunities for enemy ambush. ink control can even trap an opponent thats trying to get away
        >dying is really really bad
        …unless you run full quick respawn up gear. dont just throw yourself into the meat grinder, stay alive while also contributing and taking pot shots, or hide and create an ambush. super jump back to base is better than dying. Your team gets wiped and its a huge setback for pretty much every mode. Value your lives, this goes for salmon run too!

          Aerospray's suicide charge worked very well for me, taking out the best of element of the opposing team

          • 2 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            The aerosgay banzai timmy strategy is not ideal. “trading” is not ideal. You want to hit without getting hit. Once youre dead you cant do anything again. Just because you took out one of their timmies might not actually change the flow of battle. Now if you can somehow banzai their best player (unlikely with your inaccurate short range aerogay and braindead charge forward strategy) then maybe it would be worth it. If you insist on suicide bombing then run comeback and a fuck ton of quick respawn.

              Oh and charging towards someone with an aerogay, a weapon better suited to turfing, NOT firefights, is basically guaranteed suicide against a half decent player. Might I suggest switching to a weapon better suited to suiciding such as the tetra dualies? Four rolls to charge towards someone, shoots while rolling, great potential with the comeback + quick respawn combo.

                The aerospray is not a bad weapon…for turf wars. There’s a reason it doesnt see a whole lot of use at the highest level of play. Its great at turfing, superbly so, but its actual combat abilities are lacking due to its inaccuracy and poor range. If gold aerospray had a different sub other than sprinkler it might be able to hold its own at higher levels of play. Its not a bad weapon, a good player can use weaker weapons and do well, and it depends on the mode. But the aerospray loses most firefights it will get into, i dont know why this is a controversial statement

          probably should have elaborated. This means understanding the map layouts and knowing when and wear enemies
          can come from, having escape routes ready to go, knowing where you’re “safe”, knowing to push when enemy is down or in a weakened state. And knowing not to approach a huge pile of enemy ink as theres likely a ninja virgin out there. Paying attention to which weapon is where is also important. Knowing the range of an eliter is important, stuff like that.

          If you're trying to bruteforce your way out of danger with specials through Wave 1, then not only will you guarantee that you'll lose less points on Wave 2, but you also have a chance to make it to the safe zone that is Wave 3 and beyond especially if you get free waves like Tornado or Mothership where you wouldn't need to use any specials. However, I will admit, it is shitty seeing people use their specials super early when you're either not in danger or your quota is met (but not in any relative danger). Might be a misclick or something, but still unfortunate regardless.

        Marooners and SG have the same issue with events. If you get the wrong ones your chance of winning plummets dramatically. It’s nowhere near as bad on the other two. Also most of the rotations are trash, there’s two dud guns in most rotation. What are most players gonna do with shit like bamboozler, nozzle or undercover brella? And then there are the effective but hard to use stuff and you’re looking at high chance of wipes.

      Ink Saver Main is important so you can have more ink in the tank when in fire fights. Tenta Brella is incredibly ink hungry. Other than that, there's no real good skill. Haunt is pretty helpful since you don't need Ninja Squid and Respawn Punisher is risky for such a frontline weapon.

      No one knows when '89 is dropping, other than SOON. As for Tacticooler, you'll find some randos use it, but those running Ninja Squid builds will never touch it, since it causes a persistent buff to appear on them that the enemy CAN see too.

      I think it depends on where your team is at, as a frontliner on a reachable platformers at the edge or at the beginning of mid is good.
      If you have solid control of mid or moving forward obviously you want it a little further up

      Tacticooler is best thrown behind the frontlines but not so far back people have to fall back to it super far. You want to be out of range of most long range weapons so you don't get sniped for taking a sip, but you don't want it to be so far back that you're half out of the buff by the time you get back to the frontline.

        I originally got from A+ to S in season 1 by almost exclusively playing open and like one series so I might just do that again
        If I play against people better than me, then that means I’ll get better too right?

          Right, you are being tested. The elo thinks you are good enough to play against them. Just keep grinding until you can defeat them, then it will face you against people even better.

      Salmon Run in Splatoon 2 was baby mode. Max difficulty was lower than EVP's difficulty. Marooner's Bay was always shit, but when you only had to deal with like 3 bosses every 15 seconds instead of 5, it was much easier to deal with.

    Fun game. But doubling down on esports is always a mistake. The odor of these morons metaphysically repels anyone that might start getting interested. They reap what they've sown. It's a cute casual 'shooter'. It was never meant to be super serious. It's still a great game in spurts but you're never going to have any meaningful camaraderie with the groomer homos that infest the western community. I'll always cherish my Splatoon 1 and early Splatoon 2 days. Some of the best times I had playing a console shooter.
