Splatoon 1 & 2

New weapon tonight?

Ok I'm calling it...

GWJ'ers are going on team Invisibility for the splatfest (so we can play together).

Pick Invisibility, and wear the tee-shirt for 90% off scrubbing of your ability chunks until the end of the next splatfest.

I'll be flying right by you.

Anyone playing now? Im in the nintendo catch all on twitch.

Are Splatfest tee-shirts always SquidForce brand (5x likely to roll Ink Resistance Up & 1/2x to roll Ink Saver (main))?

This makes it harder to make ISm gear. Maybe it's Nintendo saying something about the strength of Ink Saver (main)...

I think Rave and I played against each other tonight all most every game. Even though I joined his games as a friend.

Nintendo this smells fishy.

But it still was a great night of gaming! Thank you Rave!

Yup kept joining on you as a friend as well such a weird system, why wouldn't it even attempt to put us together.

Was splatoon 1 like this as well? I'm shocked I love this game as much as I do despite its best efforts to make online as unintuitive as possible.

All the "Play With Friends" option does is drop you into the same lobby as someone on your friends list. Personally, this doesn't bother me all that much but I'm coming from a background of server based FPS games like Unreal Tournament and TF2 where you join a server and the game just randomizes people into different teams like Splatoon.

If you want to always play on the same team I think there's a different option for that although you might only be able to do that with 4 people? If that's the case, it'd be nice if they took an Overwatch style approach where it fills the remaining slots for smaller groups with randoms.

Was splatoon 1 like this as well?

Yes.

Stele, we can fly together then! I let my kids pick the teams. They picked flight, which I also what I would have picked.

I'm partial to underdog Pearl anyway, and hope this Splatfest shows Marina won't be the huge influencer of choice in these that it seemed she might be.

It took this long, but bucket and roller people who just camp in the ink and hop out and one shot you with their kind of OP ranged attacks during Turf War games are kind of the worst.

WHY AM I NOT SPLAT JUMPING TO MY TEAMMATES!!!! I'M PRESSING THE DAD GERN BUTTON!!!!!

Son "It's the A button."

THAT'S WHAT I...

Oh...

Stupid reverse button position. Gets me every time.

If anybody wants to try the new Salmon Run map today let me know. I'll try to keep Twitch open, or ping me on Steam or invite me in the Nintendo app, whatever works.

My early pub runs have been pretty mixed, with some absolutely awful. The new map has a central structure but a ton of windows. If you ink the window to floor area you get quick entry/exit from the central room, and it keeps you alive pretty easily when things get hairy. Unfortunately most players seem to not understand this at all and just get swarmed.

Just one or two of you competent people could help this go a lot smoother.

"Competent"

You had me right up until the end.

Maybe I'll actually get to play. Yesterday was the first time in a couple weeks.

I was there! Guess I was ok!

Well Manarch joined me, and he had to finish up the tutorial mission first.

We still won 4 out of 5, and actually had enough eggs to win the other one but team wiped. So still much more successful than usual pubs.

Oh man... that deal... how to resist?

Edit: problem solved. They aren't at my Target.

Is that where people get the space marine and samurai outfits? Hmm....

Splatuesday tonight?

Those are the Splatoon 1 amiibos. Do those give decent gear in Spla2n?

They give a power armor suit, a samurai suit and a school uniform.

The squid amiibo gives the power armor.

Dammit Stele, such an enabler! I managed to NOT buy the old Splatoon amiibos, but I did get my BotW amiibos, since they're still unavailable everywhere else, and also grabbed the JigglyPuff cause she's on sale too. I mean... I already bought 3 splatoon amiibos... I don't think I need to get the old ones too. Right?

Yes I'll be on the Nintendo Twitch channel.

Getting a servers down error. Anyone else?

Tues night seems to be their patch night. We might have to pick a different night to play.

Yeah different night for sure, been fun talking to people in chat though!

Yes, this was the last SplatTUESday. We'll have to see if we can find another day.

SplaThursday

New weapon this weekend: Forge Splattershot Pro. Comes with the new Bubble Blower special.

Also, happy splatfest!

Splatfest and I'm visiting family.

I brought my Switch but going to be tough to get time. Should I take it to my cousin's wedding tomorrow?
