Hey guys, I'm looking for a potential caster for a tournament, preferably EU based.

It's urgent, I believe it might be professional ? If anything transportation should be covered by the organizers. I'm sure I can get more details, but if I can get a candidate, that'd be great.

Or if you know any competent person for the job that you could recommend. A good streamer, or somebody with casting experience would be nice, or something that knows the game really well.

Thanks for the help.

Likewise if you could invite me to the discord so I could ask there too, or ask for me, thanks.

PMing you with an invite link now, Slaythe.

Depending on when and where it is, I may be able to help. We can discuss there. :)

I don't think I have the willpower to play this game if Blackbelly Skatepark is in either rotation. QR/SJ is garbage and off-putting enough to get me from ever playing Tower Control already, but if that map is in rotation it's all anyone wears.

And it's all ugly as sin.
Especially the freaking awful Bobble Hat good grief, how do you even play with that monstrosity on your head.

Are you sure this isn't C-.
Your team must have save-scummed their way into A+, there's no other explanation for that. >_>

QRSJ isn't that useful on Blackbelly outside of TC though. It's too short. It's, like, the one map where I'd recommend QR Ink Resistance instead if you're not doing TC.

Also, here are some tips on utilizing the SJ part of QRSJ:

-Don't jump to the frontlines every time; look for people to jump to that are in good spots but where you also won't die to a bomb immediately.
-You can SJ any time, not just after dying. Sometimes it's a good idea to go get your special first and *then* SJ in. Other times you'll be doing other shit and then notice you're needed elsewhere and SJ can help with that.
-Don't jump to the frontlines every time; look for people to jump to that are in good spots but where you also won't die to a bomb immediately.
-If your kraken is about to run out and you have SJ it's often better to SJ to a teammate instead of jumping all the way back to base. This applies for escaping in general TBH
-Don't jump to the frontlines every time; look for people to jump to that are in good spots but where you also won't die to a bomb immediately.
-Don't jump to the frontlines every time; look for people to jump to that are in good spots but where you also won't die to a bomb immediately.
-Don't jump to the frontlines every time; look for people to jump to that are in good spots but where you also won't die to a bomb immediately.

That's about it TBH. Can also be called "Things I learned the hard way via SplatGAF."

Yesterday I was so fucking tantalisingly close to S, I could taste it, and I still couldn't get that last win to rank up. And then of course, you start losing 12 points every time and getting 6-8 for wins and it's like - what's the point?

Does anyone else have trouble placing ink strikes on maps?

A few minutes ago I was thinking about a match on Triggerfish and ink strikes. And I was reminded about tonight and other times I have had trouble on Saltspray Rig and Museum. On Saltspray, whenever I try to place it on the zone, it ends up on the T block. And with Museum I get disorientated and can't tell which team's side I am looking at.

I've experienced something like this. I've recently fallen into an accidental project of testing builds for every weapon in the game. So I've been using more inkstrikes than usual, and yeah they're not as precise as I'd imagine. I was blaming it on my squishy thumbs.

Not a problem for me. The only thing that ever happens to me, and it is rare, is when I tap the screen to launch an inkstrike and instead of immediately firing one off it simply acknowledges a mere touch on the map -- this is most certainly because my finger tap was actually a small finger drag on the touch screen; the touch screen is very sensitive.

Tips and tricks for newcomer?
Just recently bought the first game and got to Level 7, having a blast, don't really understand how anything works though. I ordered some gear through Spyke so I'm now waiting for those, but stores said they have some fresh new stock for me but I didn't see anything new, any ideas?
Thanks.

Walls don't count toward your percentage in turf war. :D

Shops will restock their gear every day at midnight. Likewise you'll receive one order from Spyke every day. Buying from him can be costly but if you see something with a particular matching of sub-abilities that you'd want, it's worth the shot at it at least.

The main things to keep in mind, IMO, boil down to just learning game and situational awareness. Check on the map when you have a spare moment to do so to see how the fight is going, and be aware of the squids along the top-bar to know when you have a numbers advantage or not. Most of all, have fun! You'll learn more of the ins and outs of particular weapons the more you encounter and the more you unlock yourself.

The only tip I have is, don't forget to use your bombs. They can be your best teammate.
Also, when someone is super jumping in there is a line on the ring that you can use to tell when they will land.
And, don't sweat the meta.

Loving the sprinkler sub, throw it over some gap you can't jump over to paint some on the other side.
Noticed that ring last night when I got 2 Splats with Charger, didn't really feel the Charger in Splatoon 2 Testfire but starting to warm up to it here.

Started a Splat Zones game, Bluefin Depot. Noticed my E-Liter's hair glowing on the spawn platform. Hung back for a second to confirm my suspicion. Yep, he pulled out a fully-charged shot that literally went all the way across the map and clipped walls. He shot an enemy from their spawn area while standing on our spawn platform. He had infinite Krakens, an auto-charge cheat shot, and could fly or fall into terrain to become invincible.



We lost

I went 0/33
Suck it, cheater.

:^)

I feel bad for my other teammates, but them still trying despite seeing what was happening kind of rids me of most empathy

Awww, was wondering why this hadn't been posted in such a long time.

Seeing all of the relatively equal colors shows that rotations are actually thought on a bit.
Except for Flounder Heights.

I don't see how Team Deadbeat can lose. Versus a Zink Mini + Extremely Good sniper = nightmare mode. Nice to see brush users in the early rounds.

Ah.

Did anyone ever get extreme enough to compile ink-per-second data for each weapon? And then the advanced version of ink-per-second + maximum ground coverage range? So, if you had a Perma Inkbrush versus an Octobrush, the Inkbrush inkling clearly has faster ground running speed that gives it more stage floor to access for inking, but what is its ink-per-second against the Octobrush? While the Octobrush delivers more ink-per-flick does it deliver more ink-per-second against the faster flick fury of the Inkbrush? From my experience in the game, it would seem that if the Octobrush does not engage the Inkbrush then it will noticeably start losing more turf to it. Do pro teams actually calculate potential ink-per-second outputs they would lose in contested (i.e. non-death) scenarios?

Perhaps Splatoon 2 can have a speed runner mode where the goal is to 100% ink a stage.

I've decided to ditch the 100k challenge for every weapon in order to finally max out the Splat Charger by the time Splatoon 2 hits. Now that SplatGAF has gone dormant on Splatoon for the most part, it'll be harder, but I'll manage.
