      I dont know how actually viable having a dedicated backliner "goalie" is but I remember I had some amazing matches on Scorch Gorge defending our net as a Hydra.
      I would try to move up with them when we were pushing but sometimes I'd just be too slow or not be able to find a good position in all the chaos

    Everyone keeps saying they like or hate clams. Yet no one ever says why. I mean it's ok, but rather hit or miss with randos.

      It's because it requires a lot of team coordination which is very hard with the utter lack of communication options.
      I actually appreciate there's no voice chat since it means I'm not required to use it but there's still two buttons on the d-pad left unused for no reason, just assign some kind of "I need clams" button to one of them

        Agreed, this rotation is hard but manageable but when you get shit like 4 big shots spawning at the start of a wave it’s a struggle to actually kill anything due to the lower power

            Normally I haven't been getting antsy over shit like when the next direct is but i'm getting desperate for Splat news. Splatfests and BigRun being some so damn rare doesn't help either. In the past at least there was a little dribble of new weapons every couple of weeks to keep people's attention. Yeah call me a fortnite gamer or whatever but I've been playing since Splat 1 and always found the regular updates a charming aspect that sort of made the world feel a bit more alive. Only having new shit every 3 months is just dry as fuck. I'm not usually impatient about shit like this but I feel Splatoon needs more of that than other games as they always come a bit half-baked at launch.

              oh yeah and I forgot to mention. That "new" shit we get every 3 months is 80% repackaged shit from the old games! If it was actually new I might feel differently. And of course the levels. We're stuck with these same levels with no changes for months. Two levels a season is just too little, hope they boost it up to 3 at least

              Splat 3 really seems like they had to change the direction of things part way through development. In order to make up for that, and to get a product out the door they just cooked up the current model we see today. Maybe this was the plan all along who knows. I just hope the majority of the team is working on the DLC and that's why the updates have been as bare bones. Maybe a possibility once the DLC is done we'll get more substantial updates. Considering what happened to AC I'm not hopeful.

              whats a fun "slayer" weapon for turf war, Ive been using custom jr. and since its more support based I feel like it can be impossible to do anything on my own if they get momentum.

              If you like shooters and being able to paint any of the splatershots is a good choice. If you don't care about painting there's the Luna blasters.

            I imagine news about the paid DLC will be sat on until E3/June Direct in the spot E3 would be if E3 gets canned again.

            February/March direct will probably tease Season 3. If we're lucky they may start to implement the unfinished Salmon Run assets but I wouldn't be surprised if the highlight for Season 3 is online Tableturf.

      Splattershots/splash are probably outright best shooters at the moment but they're so easy it's hard to call it fun past a point

        I feel like people are sleeping on this. It is now possible to three tap people from eliter range while also marking their positions. its like having a snipewriter as your sub weapon. additionally, the ink coverage when it hits enemies is also larger, which means they can't instantly swim away, assuming they don't have ink res.

        its not meta-defining by any means, but its going to be fun

          I was literally just discussing this yesterday. The Angle Shooter easily has the capability to be one of the most fun (and high skill ceiling) subs in the game, it just needed a bit of a buff. I mean, this isn't making it meta yet but at least it'll be a fun pick now.

          That's from the EN site, and that sounds an awful lot like swim speed will be continually reduced by a fixed amount as the player swims in squid form. The question is - how much is that amount, how often does the game apply the penalty (every second? .5 seconds? .1 seconds?), and does it have any limit (or do you eventually become unable to move after submerging for a long time)?

          • 2 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            No, it sounds like the swim speed is a static number, unaffected by other modifiers.

            Cry more, it’s not useless. Youre just going to be moving at the intended speed. Ninja squid was always supposed to be a hit to swim speed. Do you want it to go back to Splat 2 where it was even slower? Even then it still had its uses, cry more. There was literally no reason NOT to run ninja squid, but it still will have utility even with the nerf.

            >basic = easy meme
            Shooters are the easiest to learn, but not the easiest to play.
            I play a lot of weapons at S+ and buckets are free as fuck if you have even a single ounce of positional skill and awareness because of their ability to arc shots and play around verticality, most of them just have shit kits right now. The Trislosher would still be incredibly obnoxious if it had a kit similar to it's kit in 2.
            Most shooters require more strict aim and reactions (unless you're playing a memelord spray weapon like the Aerospray) ESPECIALLY if you're playing one of the more difficult ones, like the S-Pro or the Squeezer. The buckets aren't even remotely close to difficulty compared to those

              That’s complete nonsense. Arcing shots doesn’t mean that much against players with a modicum of spacial awareness, especially in this game, with the maps as they are. Meanwhile, shooters the must reliable ttk and movement in the game. If you’re not an aimbot, anything with a lower fire rate requires higher skill, and this problem is exacerbated by squid roll parrying

              I think it means you get half a second of invulnerability after it ends?
              It being so vulnerable while booyah bomb gets extra invincibility AFTER YOU THROW IT is fucking retarded

              How long is the endlag before you can move again though? It’s a good improvement, but it won’t mean much if there’s still another half second of vulnerability and no movement

        Recent tournaments have still had people running 2splash/2machine or 2splash/machine/eliter. It definitely hasn't fallen out since it's pretty good at fighting crab and walling out these cramped ass mids in maps. All this will do is take away one of the decent counters that crab had.

    Well reading over this balance patch I'd say it's significant. Maybe not the nerf to Splash people wanted, but the hit to ninja squid is definitely gonna mix things up. Some other minor buffs and nerfs here and there, but nothing as dramatic as the ninja squid nerf. Still a much better patch than the laughably short mid season balance patch last time where it was just instead 100+ bug fixes

        If they made the speed penalty more harsh AND added a delay on the hidden ink trail, then the ability is dead entirely and won't be used at all.

        Pic related is machine translated from the JP notes and makes it sound like the speed penalty is less harsh (instead of more harsh), but who knows. We'll have to see tomorrow

          You retards realize it was Swim Speed that got cancelled by Ninja Squid, not Swim Speed cancelling ninja squid, right?
          Ninja Squid has a hard cap imposed on your swim speed regardless of how many Swim Speed subs you have.

          You can go equip Ninja squid right now, and compare the speed between 3 subs of swim speed up and 9 subs of swim speed up. It will literally be the same, and you will never be as fast as you would if you unequipped Ninja Squid.

          The notes are indicating that it's mitigating the effects of Ninja Squid capping the Swim Speed Up bonuses. That's why there's an additional footnote saying swim speed will still continue to be reduced by a fixed amount under the effect of Ninja Squid. It will still have a swim speed cap, but not as much as it currently is.

          Ninja Squid got faster, in return for being visible on instant use. It's a nerf in it's use for close quarter fights, in return for the swim speed cap being less harsh overall. It will fuck over those who relied on it on close range fights while still maintaining it's effectiveness in long range travelling.

          >inb4 rangelet cope

Do you want it to go back to Splat 2 where it was even slower? Even then it still had its uses, cry more.

            I get the rewards, but after 1,200 points it’s all chunks and I already have plenty of those. Badges arent much of a motivation for me because I have no intent to climb to 999 in one shift, especially when you can cheese it by playing with some discord profreshitter. I like the base 200 badges better anyway and I have all those. It discourages you from climbing as I said because it resets. Freelancers also get punished by the godawful skill in low EVP and if you dont grind up immediately when the shift starts. You gotta play that shit for 48 hours straight to get those badges and I just dont have the motivation for that. Would rather take a stab at X battles which I just unlocked

                NTA but some shifts really arent salvageable when youre dealing with the brain dead types in profreshitter. I havent deranked in months but Ive gotten close, low EVP is full of some of the stupidest fuckers imaginable. The egg quota isnt significantly lower in profreshitter than it is low EVP, but the teammates are significantly worse in my experience. On some rotations I imagine its quite effortless to get back, but on Machuders gay i imagine its hellish because even low EVPers are playing like go shitters.

                Ive struggled in the low 100s with some of the worst crab bucket shifts on that level and after a while its just not fun. Once again, if you dont grind up with the good players to the higher hundreds RIGHT when the moment the shift is available youre left with all the reject shitters. Autists dont understand this because they ALWYS grind up immediately, then hover in the high EVP where the skill level is much higher. Its a mode that rewards early and consistent play to find better players, forcing you to no life the mode if you want to not be stuck with dumbfucks. Then that progress gets wiped again next shift but hey, early bird gets the worm rise and shine again fuckos, gotta grind up at 3am so you dont get stuck with timmies the next day.

    Are the only worthwhile catalog rewards the win poses? All the catalog clothes get put in the shops the following season, right? I ask I'm at catalog 65 for this season and haven't booted the game in over a week thanks to getting sick. I was only really playing for SR and Splatfests at this point so I've just barely been keeping up with the catalog and I think my brain spiders over trying to keep up with and get everything are finally broken.

    I've been revisiting Splatoon 1 and 2 the past couple of days, and you know, the old saying really is true. Don't know what you've got till it's gone. 1 was definitely rough around the edges, but there are still huge parts of it I miss. The most obvious being the '90s Nick aesthetic. 2 and 3 are still all about splatting, but they don't have down the carefree, silly attitude that 1 had. It was everywhere, from the nice atmosphere of Booyah Base, to the stages being things like skate parks, a mall, and a summer camp, to the text font. It wasn't perfect by any means, but it laid an incredibly strong foundation for the series' identity. 2 strayed a little from that to be slightly, I dunno, edgier? Something along those lines, and 3 more so. Plus it was nice to use my amiibo to set up impromptu splatfest concerts again. Really wish they put that in 2.

        After Splat 1 ended with the waifu fest and the Squid Sisters amiibo came out, you could scan them into the game to switch it into splatfest mode with them singing in the plaza. It could be any of their songs, too, though in typical fashion you could only get Bomb Rush Blush with the Callie amiiibo whilst Marie let you have Tide Goes Out.

    For all the crap I would give 2 about not being identical to 1, it still had a nice feel to call its own when compared to both the sequel and predecessor. You notice a lot of the little details, like the menus, the shops and their characters. Inkopolis Square is still the least interesting home base, but it is somewhat cozy. The main takeway from 2, and also from 1, is the stages. So many really big open stages for players to run around in. I wouldn't even call most of these my favorites, but they were still capable of giving a good time. Musselforge, Snapper Canal, Starfish, Manta Maria, Humpback. Surely, each with their own flaws, but rare was the time I'd get a particular stage and bemoan it. The variety was huge, which really made the 2-stage rotation frustrating. Should've been 3 or 4, at the least.

    Little has to be said about how great Octo Expansion was, and what it brought as a really fun single player experience. To say nothing of how well received the octolings were. Going back to 2's models, it's sadly true that they were cuter in 2 than 3. Not that they're horrible or ugly in 3, but you put them side by side and the comparison is hardly flattering. Playing OG salmon run is sobering a shell after Next Wave. No fish sticks, no big shots, no endless barrage of flyfish missiles. Flyfish exist, but not nearly to the extent that they do in 3's EVP. I really missed playing on Lost Outpost and Ark Polaris. Smokeyard is perfectly tolerable if the weapon selection isn't ass.

    All that being said, Splatoon 3 still has brought things to the table to improve the series. The movement and gunplay feels better than ever, which is important for a series whose gameplay is all about quick reactions and reflexes. Going back to 1 and 2 was fun, but 3 is easily the game that lets you feel the most agile by a long shot. Modern salmon run can be infuriating, and full of so much bullshit that the goddamn game lags. But when things go right, it feels absolutely amazing. Some of the most fun you can have on the Switch. It's just a shame that there's so much stuff about 3 that people dislike, a lot of the good parts can feel miniscule. Triple splatfests thus far have been a mess, the gear and weapon rollout has been severely lacking, doing "seasons" and a not-battle pass is just trying to ride stupid current trends, and even though Big Run was really fun, they didn't really give you anything for it. The mode itself isn't even altered aside from the gimmick of being on regular multiplayer stages.

    I get that making a game can be difficult, along with trying to keep it fresh when the base is already really strong. But a lot of their choices for 3 so far make very little sense, from any perspective. I'm mad that we dropped what feels like 50 fun to decent stages for 6 or 7 different meat grinders, with only a few past holdouts. I'm mad that salmon run's potential is being squandered when it was my favorite part of 2, and still is of 3. I'm mad that the game launched with what feels like 20% of 2's gear. I'm mad that the online is inferior it BOTH previous titles. I never had any many disconnects in 1 and 2 that I did in 3. But most of all, I'm sad because I know they can do so much better. Single player was still fun, though not as good as OE. Things like lockers and personal name tags are alright, though not huge. I just want them to fix the game into being a worthy successor, but my hopes aren't too high. Especially after happened with AC:New Horizons.

    Not really sure what the point was going through that personal little Splatoon introspective was, but felt like getting it out there. Went through a lot of emotions regarding the series the past few days. The series mostly had its ups, but it's currently in something of a down and I hope it starts rising again soon. I want to go back to better, open maps. I want to go back to fun crossover gear. We never got that Jet Set Radio shit. Maybe another new weapon class or two in the future. God willing, the Pearl and Marina DLC will be just as amazing as Octo Expansion was. What I'm trying to say here is that octo daughter best daughter.

      NOOOO NOT THE OCTO SHARTER!
      anyway good write up I agree with pretty much everything. Moving in Splatoon 3 definitely feels better than it ever has and thats a big deal in and of itself even if its a subtle improvement. Asides from the subtle touches a lot is lacking and in some ways inferior to previous titles. Its frustrating because Splat 1 came at a time when I was feeling pretty uninterested with the state of gaming and it just came out of nowhere with something uniquely fresh, it got me playing games again. By the time 2 came out I got a bit burned out as I went hard with Splat 1, but Octo Expansion brought me back for a little. 3 so far has got me logging more hours than 2 already but Im already starting to feel the burnout. I feel this game could have been so much more but it’s still fun as it stands. The level design leads a lot to be desired in some cases but if they keep adding decent stages like Flounder thats a step in the right direction. But it makes me a bit worried about the future of splatoon to be honest. Keeping my expectations a lot more grounded going forward.

        Surprisingly large amount of good and fun players tonight in SR. Definitely not what I expected from a shift with both the goo tuber and big swig. Just goes to show how much shitters can ruin your games.

        I just hope all the success hasn't gone to the devs' heads. New Horizons made them a bajillion dollars but even their final patch of the game left it severely lacking. God willing, that won't also happen to Splatoon. Because there's some damn good shit here, but it needs a lot of work. And I ain't raising my hopes, I can tell you that.

        They won't in the game but I can bet you any amount of money that the devs have metric fuck ton of shipping art sketches that will never see the light of day.

        I bet it's cute as fuck, too.

        They clearly support it with those illustrations they made on Valentine's Day and White Day.

You can't really "ruin" a character whose entire purpose is to be the player's self-insert and be a blank slate. For the purposes of the story and promotional art, they have slight archetypes. Agent 3 is somewhat aloof, 4 is hyperactive, and 8 is...8. But it's never really gone deeper than that, and I doubt they intend to.

    >Swim Speed now provides more effect to counter the reduction Ninja Squid gives

            Then have them stand around like the squid sisters, we don't need to play as them unless it's some kind of cool co-op switching mechanic. I could get behind something like that if it mixes up the gameplay in a fresh way.

            All I want is for the gameplay to be interesting. I don't want it to be another mario galaxyesque thing where we're just superjumping from platform to platform. It would be nice to see a more interconnected world. I imagine it's done the way it is because if they opened up the worlds of Splatoon anymore the framerate would probably tank. Everythings gotta be byte size levels for performance sake, so I'm not expecting anything too wild.

              That's pretty much what I wanted from 3's single player. It was actually still kind of fun, so I'm not too disappointed but it wasn't anywhere near what I had been anticipating for something that was in the works for years. They didn't even have the excuse that 2 did.

                They had the new excuse, muh lockdowns and I think in their case it was justified as japs went full retard with work from home. Don't think they got hardly any work done for at least a year plus. Many games released in that time period suffered from similar problems. Then there's the weird internal issues with the idea that there was supposed to be a successor system by now. Maybe Splatoon 3 was intended to be something bigger in scope but they had to scale it back and get something out in the time before the next console comes, where we know it will get official support for two years, with a Switch successor announcement maybe at the end of this year for 2024, meaning they couldn't afford to delay it any longer.

                I'm convinced that the new Pokemon game's performance issues are as shit as they are because they were under the belief a stronger switch revision would have happened by them, if the rumors are to be believed. The chip shortage also may have affected things, but I think back to the 3DS and it being in a situation where it was extremely underpowered. Pokemon Sun and Moon was also suffering tons of slowdown on the base 3DS, but the new 3DS gave it a slight enough bump in power to make it so that the battles wouldn't come to a complete slowdown. They never got that boost for switch so they're stuck with their dogshit optimization. Many developers are currently being held back due to the hardware limitations of the switch, not just the incompetent gamefreak. Splat 3 may have been something different if more power was afforded to them in the form of a revision

                No, Pokemon SV's issues are due to Gamefreak being a lazy as shit developer. Compare Pokemon with Xenoblade 3, another semi-open world JRPG released on Switch in the same year.

                You're missing my point exactly. I'm saying if you were to imagine a world where New 3DS never came out, Sun and Moon would have been panned even harder for its dogshit performance, another game that was horribly unoptimized due to gamefreak's incompetence. I'm saying they never got that power boost here like they did with the 3DS, and it shows.

                Could they have done a much better job at optimizing for the switch? Definitely, but that wasn't the point of my post. With 3DS they were given the bare minimum power increase so their game wouldn't run like complete trash, and they may have been hoping for a similar situation on the Switch.

                Remember before the Switch gamefreak thought it was going to be a financial disaster and were reluctant to develop the new games for switch, opting to instead keep developing for the 3DS.

                I suppose I can't be mad at that when I've suffered losses from the coof. Though I dunno about a new system, it's been pretty evident that they're trying to ride the Switch for as long as possible. Still wondering if there's anything else they could snatch from the rotting hands of the Wii U in its grave. I just hope that time is kinder to Splat 3 and it becomes something truly special.

                I can deal with that. Kind of, I've still got personal beef with the system itself but damn are there good games on it.

                Pretty much the only title that they haven't grave robbed off the Wii U at this point is Xenoblade X.

                Looking through my personal library, we're still missing Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. But good luck with that, you'd need to release it with one of those special styluses for phones. Also Yoshi's Woolly World. The fact it got put in 3DS is fucking stupid. There's like 4 or so 3DS ports that have no business being on there. Being Switch ports would've been way better.

                I really don't think a new system was ever in the cards for this time frame, COVID or not, I think people are just coping with the years and years of Switch Pro rumors never amounting to anything.

                I swear, Switch Pro becomes a hot topic every 4 months and it's stupid every single time.

                XBX getting remade on the switch would suck because it's not a noticeable boost in power and would likely be a pain in the ass to optimize. Save that for the next console

                XBX does really deserve a second chance. I'm not usually a graphicsfag at all but XBX is pretty much the only time I can remember being taken out of a game due to some ugly graphics, those character models were fucking ATROCIOUS even if the environments were absolutely stellar. Hopefully any Switch 2 revival would improve those a bit.

                Emulate XBX on cemu if you get the chance. Mods for higher resolutions, some QOL stuff, and 60fps mods as well, It's fucking great. Still, the fact it ran as well on the Wii U as it did was a technical marvel. The switch is kind of underclocked to the Wii U in some ways, which is why I think it would be a waste to port it as it wouldn't run significantly better and might even run worse in some instance. Monolith deserves the extra hardware power of a new system to really let that game shine, give it a fresh coat of paint, and maybe an epilogue or something to resolve the half baked plot.

              thing is spatoon doesn't really lend itself all that well to anything that's too big. the most you can hope for is, again, the escape/rocket levels but on a bigger scale where they can still have platforming challenges but more interconnected and be based around legit structures.

Booted up 2 recently to play through it since 3 was fresh on my mind and 3's singleplayer really is just "we have octo expansion at home", a cheap imitation.

    There will likely be more crab nerfs in the next update, they probably didn't want to completely kneecap it and then go back on it later, At least this is an actual balance patch instead of a laundry list of bug fixes masquerading as a balance patch like the first mid season update.

      It just turfs slightly better, I don't think that's enough to take it out of its middling status. It was "useable" before, but I think it will still be lacking. Just spam point sensors and killer wails the weapon.

          In that case, I'd have to go with the fairly popular idea where 3 is the grizzled veteran from 1. Which is more or less canon, but still. 8 is the cute yet capable newbie that's trying find her way in a world that's just opened up to her, and 3 is there to help her. Whether it's platonic or romantic is up to the individual, but either way I love the idea of them being close. I bet 8 invites 3 over to her place all the time and he has to put up with 4 being a little spaz.

        It's diminishing returns on every extra sub of anything. Doesn't mean it's not useful still. Also, other weapons, like the dynamo (I don't know about the sloshdeco) have their upgrades on steps instead of on a slope. That is to say, you need a certain amount of main saver to reach the next step for another full flick.

        Not really a splash problem. Range blasters are easy to deal with as any slayer.
        They have such a wide range around them where the blast won't hit and the shot is so slow that directs are unlikely. I have no fear of them until I switch to a longer range weapon.
        If you wanted to give splash and other shorter range weapons a hard time, go with blaster or luna. Even clash is more difficult than a range.
