Sometime it is very frustrating with randoms.

You're not the only one who has noticed that. Common occurrance.

I played some squad matches with another roller on my team and it just wasn't working out. It takes the Roller out of his groove, IMO.

The best team is one roller/brush (preferably roller), two assault and one surgical charger.

Me, you, Triforce and Robotguy were 6-0 against some clans/squads that had strategies ready to go. They already had their clan tags ready to go. But we had our classes, map knowledge and skill to counter. We were playing against A+, S teams and we still won.

I dont like 2 eliters on teh same team.

Yeah I can drop swim speed for special charge up, but then I won't be first in the rush to mid which is crucial considering I use a medium range weapon. Yes I can stand somewhere safe and ink but then the other team can 4v3 the middle area and then I'm standing there like an idiot, I have to aid my team by taking duels that's non negotiable. Essentially the tentatek has no special.



I'm at S and get 1-3 points for winning usually, and loose 5 upon loss. It's insane. I won 3 matches in a row and that netted me 5 points, lost them in the following match. They did say they wanted it to make it harder to remain at S rank. You need ridiculous RNG to get all the way up to S+ 99.

I feel like you're relying way to much on the inkzooka. You should pick another weapon if that's the only reason you're using it. When I play in ranked I usually treat the special as a bonus, not something I rely on but a nice extra little help. There are times where I rely completely on my special but for the most part it's my weapon and sub that I depend on to win.

Ranked is starting to piss me off big time. Not only is the matchmaking annoying, lag is getting unbearable. I hit Japanese players 3 times in the face with the freaking bucket and they don't die. Another time I run behind a roller user, he jumps up and kills me although I shot 5 times with the n-zap in the back. Don't get me even started on the hit box nonsense with snipers. You cannot evade them because the hit still kills you.

Give us regional matches, Nintendo!

My already bad aim is even more off in Ranked. Because of that our Squad Battle was so welcomed. Although I think the match we lost on Underpass was somewhat affected by lag too. Or I just played a lousy round. Which tends to happen.

Squad Battle at least eliminates the nonsense other players do in Ranked. I cannot count the times I had to ride to tower alone, fending off enemies while the others where running around doing basically nothing. Still, the high ping gets in the way too often.

I'd rather wait 30 seconds to find players from Europe, even America, than have to deal with this nonsense. The game has sold enough by now to enable this option.

Okay so the bucket is amazing, but the Splatling still confuses me so I'm not using it.
Taking a two week break for university purposes was worth, but I'm still not as good as I was.

Salt below!

I know I shouldn't take games so seriously but losing six games in a row while having the highest score on the team (or rarely, on both teams) is soul destroying.
I've not seen the On Fire tag since the last Splatfest.

Seriously how is it possible to only get 200p on Kelp Dome, and why is this miraculous player always matched to my team?

Useless facts. The Splatoon site scrapres profile info for the green icon upon fir connecting via v2.0.0. I since changed my equips but only the old ones show up. I guess it would update upon finishing a match.

Weapon stats (blue icon) also only appear once you've completed a match it would seem (I just have the message about playing on v2.0.0.) so I'm out of luck there (I know I can read them all in-game).

Like everything in Splatoon (besides private matches) you get what you want for a small window of time. Like the Splatfest is the regional matchmaking and 3 map rotation. There will still be lag and turf war only, N-Zapper 89

Also,laggy matches>unstable matches

I'm not doing anything until the Splatfest now (Team South, I'm taking you down I'm on Team South) as that removes Japanese and American players, retains Australians though. I might also try to use a neighbors wi-fi (though due to distance it is one bar so a poor signal which might be just as bad) though to be frank the it's your connection answer is not a solution and is just going to be fucking ping pong with the ISP saying "its just one game so talk to the devs" and Nintendo UK being "have you tried turning it off and on again and talking to your ISP".

nah, I didn't play for a week and a half and it took me some time to get used to the controls again and at the end of the day I was doing quite well again, probably better than ever in a couple matches I've played (I played a lot, yesterday)
I always do best when I keep in mind that I should use the E-Liter like a Squiffer - it's really fun to jump around the map, relying on half-charged shots with damage up and generally staying mobile

People have been asking for this, but splatfest has shown that it makes little difference. If you are consistently having this sort of experience, it is your connection. I have been playing since day zero and am approaching 150 hours online. I have noticed what you describe in less than ten matches, ever.

Yeah, maybe. Maybe not. Still, I'd prefer a regional setting just to reduce the pings.

Just look at the pings I have to different destinations (via cloudping.info):

US-East (Virginia) 145 ms
US-West (California) 202 ms
US-West (Oregon) 217 ms
Europe (Ireland) 54 ms
Europe (Frankfurt) 45 ms
Asia Pacific (Singapore) 302 ms
Asia Pacific (Sydney) 384 ms
Asia Pacific (Japan) 327 ms
South America (Brazil) 247 ms

Playing with people from Europe would reduce the pings by a lot. Of course most people are on a wireless connection, but their pings would probably be still under 100 ms.

However during Splatfests I get many more connection weird behaviours than in ranked...Also, Ranked seems to work better than Turf War for me. Usually I get a couple of connection error the fist time I switch to Turf War after having played Ranked with no problems for a while (the errors usually happen before I even start the match). After that, Turf Wars works good too.

Haha they're playing turf wars as a squad and the guy they're showing playing started booyahing at 5 seconds left on the timer and let the enemy take over the zone. Pretty sure he wasn't one of the devs though, just the host of the show

Yes. I'm not the greatest player but the Japanese snipers hitting me 2 second after in behind a wall are not fun to play against.
