  1. Yes, despite my absolutely horrific first impression of it, it might actually be quite powerful if you dare to master it. Being able to splat a Drizzler while it’s shielded is a handy time saver. The downside of that tweet is the cooperating with your co-workers to get close to bosses when you’ve got no weapons with range.
  2. Normally, having three Grizzco Special weapons in a Salmon Run wave would be cause for celebration but three Grizzco Splatanas with a grand total of zero range is the stuff of nightmares. It’s broken me, to be honest.
  3. Rank decay has been known for a while but I don’t think the game itself ever bothered to explain it. I’m not a fan of it. You lose a rank but the opposition is still as strong. The first few weeks of a new season are going to be rough and demotivating.
  4. The Snipewriter is an interesting new weapon. Part sniper, part shotgun. The Custom Splattershot Jr with Wave Breaker and Torpedo is going to counter Ninja Squid right out of the game. That’s nasty.
  5. Ninja Squid with one Swim Speed Up main allows me to keep up with my curling bombs and that’s all the speed I need.
  6. Clash Blaster in Tower Control will get you endless multikills. It’s kinda disgusting.
  7. 3rd person mosh pit is single-handedly keeping the buyer’s remorse at bay. These maps just seem to make more sense when played that way. Even the border one.
  8. https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2022/10/splatoon-3-version-1-2-0-announced-here-are-the-full-patch-notes You’re too good to us, Nintendo.
  9. It’s actually the opposite for me. I’m losing a lot and have climbed twice out of the last three sets. So even when you’re climbing, the experience is still miserable. I’m too scared to play tank in this tough. Every match I’m in ends with ‘tank diff’ in chat.
  10. Seeing the tips pop up again after being eliminated is quite triggering to an OW1 veteran. Especially the Mei and Roadhog ones. It’s like being teabagged.
  11. By being a Sploosh main, apparently. Curling Bombs + Ninja Squid. There’s nothing you can’t achieve with them. Ask me to adopt a different style and things quickly go south…
  12. My comprehensive guide to successfully ranking up. A rank. Don’t play Clam Blitz S rank. Don’t play Clam Blitz S+ rank. Don’t play anything other than Splat Zones with a Reef-Lux
  13. It is. Max Hazard Level in 2 ended up rarely being a problem for me or my random team mates but I haven’t seen one in this yet and have had much worse struggles. According to the app, the highest hazard level I’ve encountered is 186% and that was busier than a maximum run in 2. The weapon comps haven’t helped so far. There was one about a week ago that made light work of everything including Cohozuna but everything else has been tough. At the other end of the scale, the new Tornado wave which is basically you and a box of eggs is incredibly boring and free of threat. I used to be grateful when the mothership appeared but this is a whole new level of free pass. It’s had some truly excellent QoL additions but in terms of the stages and basic levels of fun, it’s currently not as enjoyable as it was in the last game.
  14. It’s a wonderfully versatile bit of kit too. Curling bombs are always ideal for flanking a back line. I enjoy getting aggressive with it. It should be an in-your-face weapon like the Sploosh. Giving it Tenta Missiles was a mistake. The special should have been something similar to the Sploosh’s Ultra Stamp. There’s bound to be a major rebalancing for it in the next patch.
  15. I’ve done something to upset Nintendo. That moment when you look at the other names and know you’re being punished for something. These games go exactly as I expect them to. I don’t even bother aiming my weapons at them anymore, I just ink as much coverage for my team mates as I can and pray for it to be over as soon as possible.
  16. Table Turf Battle is a great Switch game in its own right and the perfect way to get your heart rate back down after a stressful ranked session. This YouTuber has helped me get better at it. The most simple thing I learned from her tutorials is that you only ever really need to build three specials and then use them on one of the low cost big cards below that don’t come with special chunks. There’s little point in using anything with a special chunk on your final move. The bigger cards can also be hard to find a space for at the end. I now use cards like Big Man to try and mess up a rival’s area early on and am on my way to earning that all-important Level 30 emote.
  17. The popular vote nearly always used to lose the Splatfest.
  18. This game can be quite vindictive. On top of voiding four wins but still deducting your entry fee for an Anarchy Series if someone disconnects during the final match, it just decided to not give me my Salmon Run rewards because the round finished after the rotation ended Apart from the contstant robbery, I’m having a great time.
  19. Being an Eggsecutive VP in Salmon Run is kind of rubbish. You get paid very well, of course, but it’s really all about those Cohozuna scales and, yeah, that doesn’t go so well compared to other pay grades… I’m still waiting to be able to purchase my first set of overalls.
  20. Kind of. I approach this forum like Splatoon these days. Stick a Ninja Squid tee on and be seen as little as possible. It’s the only way to succeed.
  21. Horrified is one word. Blinded another. I have a TV from this range and just tried those settings. I genuinely think you might have something wrong with your eyes. Personal preference is personal preference but: Sharpness above 3 on this TV is overkill but in fairness it’s the least of your worries. Dynamic Contrast is broken IMHO. I’ve used it on a Samsung in the past and couldn’t understand why everyone was so against it but on this it literally destroys the picture. Colour at 70 combined with Colour Enhancement set to max is a vibe, I’ll give you that. When I just tried it, colour enhancement made everything look less natural and I noticed a loss in detail. There are situations where colour enhancement works, though. HDR Game mode requires a bit of a helping hand in this department. And I’ve no idea what noise and mpeg reduction would add to a modern console other than lag and a messed up image but those would be my main suspects for banding issues.
  22. Things will never be the same. Jeff is leaving in the middle of OW2 development. https://playoverwatch.com/en-gb/news/23665015/
  23. I hope it’s not too late to be accepted by FC United of Manchester. They knew what was coming since day one and wanted nothing to do with it. I’ve always respected them and hoped they’d get that dream FA Cup tie. That might be another dead dream today. Liverpool fans have it slightly better. They can support Everton now.
