>Official NA Tumblr:
She's such a winner
>This will be my last Splatfest
My heart is beating out of my chest. What is going on. And who won?
nth for Callie and Marie are both good and for the sake of healing the scar between their fanbases should
have inky, incestuous sex together
>this will be my last splatfest
you ok anon?
They should only have sex if they love each other
No, it's the unquenchable rivalry that keeps this game heated. The sex will remain behind the scenes.
>peer in through the glass window one day
>Callie and Marie are there, but their bodies are under a sheet and their chairs seem closer than usual
Alive for the moment.
But can't bring consoles to College...
They truly are glorious
It could be that he doesn't want people to fuck up his consoles when he doesn't know them yet. I only brought my DS my first year because I wasn't aquainted with my roommate. Eventually the next year, I did bring them
Does anybody have a screenshot of the banter or the results screen?
Thanks random Twitter
I couldn't have predicted these results any more closely.
Personal gain triumphs over material gain.
Oh that's a relief.
This was the first Splatfest where I went out of my way to seal as many wins as possible, because I found the topic to be such a dilemma between commitment or greed. Ended up with enough points to reach Queen twice; and it paid off.
Fitting that it's my last, unless the sequel is still strong after three years.
Marie just didn't have the coin to bribe that cat.
Aww, she even said please.
SHUT THE FUCK UP POST THE BEST SQUID
But my squid is a dirty, slutty, violent piece of shit?
Aw, the Squid Sisters are so cute!
But wait, what's wrong with Judd...
better then those two sluts who probably suck their producer's dicks
Oh it most definitely is.
Nothing wrong with that, of course.
>no scarf headgear
Spla2n better fix this shit.
I guarantee they don't.
Not only are squid teeth way too irregular and sharp, not only do they have some of the strongest jaws in the animal kingdom, but also their tongues are covered in tiny barbs used to further break up their food.
A blowjob would literally be a dick in a blender.
Furthermore Squids can only breed once due to the mortality rate involved, so general sex is additionally impossible.
>their tongues are covered in tiny barbs used to further break up their food.
Of course they evolved that away. They have access to culinary foods, and have no need for such barbs anymore.
>Furthermore Squids can only breed once due to the mortality rate involved
Plain and simply incorrect. Sex does not kill squids, they simply procreate at the very near end of their lives. Damn procrastinators if you ask me.
Squids don't have vaginas. The male must impale the female with his dick if they're to get anywhere.
That doesn't leave many options for sex outside of butt fun and hand action. And tentacles of course.
I think you think too hard on this
its like saying catboys have barbed penises
the creators are japanese, they're bound to keep the way they live human
hell their squid form is mostly ink to pass through grates and stuff
Probably; but I find it doubtful a dedicated species would evolve to allow internal reproduction, dick to womb, as opposed to its previous external reproduction, eggs and stuff.
Then again they did become comprised entirely out of ink somehow, so who the fuck knows.
So hey, how about those cute, wonderful, not-for-sexual squids then, eh?
does anybody wanna squad in like 20-30 minutes?
add me in advance i suppose
feel free to do so
I wonder if they'd actually treat Agent 3 differently once the crisis was over, maybe become friends.
Spla2n, take notes.
>sea levels rise
>rather than life continuing on as normal for the sea creatures they all for some reason evolved into human-sea creature hyrids and came ashore instead of just continuing on as they were
Definitely overthinking things, their evolution is just Japanese humanization magic.
However it makes sense; Octopus are typically seen as the smarter species, with a few exceptions of ridiculously intelligent types of super squid. Squids remain the apex predator though.
Blasters in full force today. GGs
Nothing to see here, just a perfectly normal inkling.
Kein Plan wer du bist, aber ich hoffe du warst auf Marie's (fick die deutschen Namen) Seite, ansonsten bist' ne Bummsfrikadelle
No plan who you are , but I hope you were on Marie 's ( fuck the German name ) page , otherwise are ' ne Bumm meatball

I'm definitely going to learn German some time.

merely wrote the truth
Only if the sharks get peckish and steal snacks. Then they're FUCKED.
So how many fit Callie images did we get from this little adventure? I only counted three or four.
She's #1 in her own heart too
Complements herself in the mirror
No, Callie just loves her precious sister with all her heart.
Remember when people said fit was a bad choice?
Hosting squads again!
Any weapon/rank welcome.
Yin and Yang anon; neither would shine without the other.
I stream all our squads.
Why the fuck are all eliters cancerous shitheads?
Every single fucking time I play against of these shitters they always squidbag or taunt after they get me from across the map or get one of their laggy shots that clearly doesn't hit me but still kills.
When the fuck is Nintendo gonna nerf this shitty weapon so I can see all the salt from every asshole that uses this shitty crutch weapon.
Firefly Squids generate bioluminescent light.
Bigfin Reed Squids reflect light.
They only serve to amplify each other.
Well, I'm 2 for 2 on splatfests. Pleases me that those money hungry whores got BTFO
>Callie is the moon
>Marie is the sun
it bothers me how backwards this is
Literally, metaphorically; whatever. Point remains that two Callie's would be boring and two Marie's would be hell. They're perfect for each other.
not him but remove the hitmarker
if youre laggy enough, all you have to do is wait for the hitmarker to show up and its a guaranteed kill every time. i dont get why having a free mini-echolocator on a ranged weapon that can one shot is okay.
The world couldn't handle that much venom
I'm sure their perpetual sweet nothings and dire lack of complication would never grow old.
Unless we're talking Callie and lil Callie, because that would be adorable.
Anon, neither of them are complicated.
They're shallow ideas of "stupid" and "bitch" meant to make you laugh.
In any case, if they complemented each other, I'm sure more people would like both of them instead of loving one and hating the other.
>scarth has a private lobby up
>guess the password
>as soon as i join they all leave
I love Aerospray, never had a real problem with E-Liters except for ONE time on old Urchin Underpass.
Now the only annoyance is charger shots going straight through the tower pillar which is only a mild annoyance to the constant fireworks of Luna Blasters.
I don't main charger but I play it sometimes and I never go by hitmarker. Doesn't stop me from hitting retarded shots without even needing to hold a full charge, honestly I don't think you can really balance chargers until you make dmg up completely unable to affect them. while we're at it just remove damage and defense up entirely, they're both cancer.
I'm not saying they're complex, the quips and banter are themselves 'complications'. In other words, conversings that make them interesting. Saying nice and sweet and harmless things over and over isn't interesting. That's why a Callie duo would be boring.
>used heavy splatling so much that i forgot how to use the mini
how do i use these things? all i know is they're good for aggression and are sanic fast with a ton of run speed
the year is 2016 and people still dont know how to deal with chargers
Chargers dont need to be nerfed, you just need to stop playing like an idiot
Either that, or blame nintendo for laggy servers like the little children you are
>I'm sure their perpetual sweet nothings and dire lack of complication would never grow old.
This but unironically
You might get sick of it but I could definitely hear them read the news forever
Literally everyone knows how to deal with chargers you god damn retard.
It's fucking eliter with it's across the map range and burst bombs that's bullshit to deal with.
But then how would you prefer one over the other? How would you discern them in their parallel personalities? How would you ladle one with the positive Splatfest options and the other the negative? How would we make ongoing jokes and headcanons about one being spunky and energetic and the other being lazy and profuse? Where's the enjoyment? Where's the alternative bitch that solves everything?
>dead instantly no matter where you are because every map has to have a charger spot where its the trail of tears to get remotely near them
>finally get close to them
>2 damage up-burst bombs or a kraken seals your fate
this is balance
It isn't, never let the retards that try justifying their crutch tell you otherwise.
any charger that camps from a relatively safe spot without seeing any real action will always be a bitchboi.
Nah, I can't stand Marie but I love her for what she is; an antagonist. Everything she does only serves to make Callie look tougher and more patient and more thick skinned. She might be an utter bitch, but she serves a very necessary function.
We're back to talking about the importance of contrast, but it's an undeniably powerful thing.
>I can't stand Marie but I love her for what she is; an antagonist
ok man you just keep doing your own thing
Oh I'm sorry, is thinking hard not allowed anymore? Did you just want to look at the pretty girls? Don't let me get in your way then.
Look at the amount of attention to detail in this game, and design, and planning, and effort. They're far from just half-arsed filler set to read updates. There's a very good reason why they've proven so popular.
it's not like "attention to detail" is a hidden thing that you have to guess on its existence.
there is clearly little attention to detail in the squid sister's personality because their personalities are shallower than a puddle.
i won't call it half-assed, because their character designs are very well done and they do their job: being entertaining.
but to say they're deep characters is just plain wrong, and to try to analyze them to the level you've done is just a waste of time.
Take the Octosniper training into overdrive.
When it comes to close range it's ambush time, just being in their vicinity puts them on edge, they want you to get splatted quickly so they can go back to feeling comfy holding down the fort from afar. The longer you're alive the worse it is for them.
are scoped chargers worth it?
Seem I get killed by the scope more often than I get saved by its range.
For a "literaturefag", he's not doing too well in the literature part. There's no way Marie can be an antagonist because that would imply that Callie is a protagonist. That's the whole role of the antagonist. To oppose the protag. She hasn't even done any protagonistic stuff other than being sunny and entertaining.
>tfw school and no summer in sight
I'm not saying their deep. I've never said their deep. All I've said is they serve a function, and that what character they have makes them very interesting. That's precisely what makes people obsess over them; Callie being nice and Marie being nasty might not be much in the broad scheme, but you've seen how much their guise has expanded from their banter alone. All of their tastes and preferences and hobbies and niches all boiled down from just a few words exchanged during a news break. It might be all they have, but it's still understandably fun to discuss and compare them.
And if I analyze a character in depth, even if said character has very little depth, that's just because it's something I love to do. You don't have to read it. Meanwhile I'll keep hoping they're expanded upon in a sequel; some more backstory perhaps.
My poor choice of wording at fault. Marie is antagonistic, not THE antagonist. That would be agreeably retarded.
weapons are balanced by their inability to function at certain ranges or in certain situations. chargers, specifically eliters, are an exception to this because they have every possible situation covered with the weapon-sub-special combo provided. even the octoshot fails to perform at extremely close ranges or in enemy ink because it has no means of quickly inking your feet, but for some reason its balanced to have snipers be free of this problem.
obviously since these characters are so incredibly deep, callie actually the hero who is struggling with herself to confront/save marie a misguided villain about her selfserving hedonistic ways but can't due to her over-bubbly personality which masks her true nature making people assume that sees a shallow ditz
Remember when there were a bunch of people on /v/ and a bunchcha other websites who really REALLY wanted ridley in Sm4sh? And then when Sakurai put him in as a stage boss, people started calling him Hakurai and tried to rig the smash ballot to try and get him in again? Those people are ridleyfags.

YEAH REAL FUCKING FAIR GAME
why does this stupid fucking game stack the odds so hard against literally everyone who's not a stinking jap
>two wins in a row
>then two cum errors in a row
Cause it's frustrating to perform well for nothing. It's one thing if all of my teammates did their best but it's another if they were squidsucking.
how do these skills look for zink mini?
not sure if i should add damage ups somewhere since defense up can turn it into a 5shot kill
i'd go for 2x special saver over 2x special charge if you have the right gear. ink res lets you move much more freely in contested territory and survive long enough to get 4 shots off in firefights, definitely more useful than a 2nd swim speed main. never tried damage but I doubt it makes enough of a difference enough of the time to be worth a main slot. defense stackers are pretty rare.
My specialty... is hotaao comics
would special saver really help that much? i'm not exactly finding myself dying left and right and generally get the bubblers pretty quick
i'll swap out the kicks for the blue moto boots though to try it out
right, i'll give it a go then
losing two subs of it can't hurt and it's not like a single sub of ink recovery helps a whole lot
should i try fitting bomb range somewhere? i hear it's dank with disruptors
special saver is good for playing more to the objective I think. being personally I don't like wasting my bubble on a 1v1 when I could use it on two teammates when the time is right. 2x saver also lets you keep your bubble if you get sniped/rollered/killed by whatever without getting the chance to pop your bubbler. it's just a playstyle thing though, do whatever works for you.
i honestly don't see much reason not to try it, if it works then it works and if it doesn't i'll just use the gear rolled for another weapon
is there a difference between main special saver and 3 subs? what about charge up?
Bomb range up is very good since bombs going farther than usual always surprises people since it's rarely used. You should use the rockenberg black jacket since the main ability is bomb range up.
i think i've settled on a set to roll for, looks surprisingly nice
i very rarely even see the black jacket used, usually it's the white one
boot are too good to not be overused
anyone wanna squad to help me unlock these slots?

I can't believe it fucking worked. I wonder if this can avoid charger shots and Killer Wails too.

This squid must die.

Every motherfucking time. I know they feel it too.

I'm sure this has probably been asked before, but it's only just crossed my mind.
How do you pronounce marie's name
I know its logical to say mary, but for some reason my brain won't allow me to say it any other way than -mari like cala-mari.
>using default 96 in a splatfest
>matched against a 96 deco
>he has the exact same name as me
anyone wanna do some twin squad matches? just need to unlock some slots

This. This sums up everything I feel about this game. There is no fun in striving to do your best and then lose horribly. I've spent the last few days playing and being literally 500-700p above the next guy on my team, even when we lose. I just hate it.
All the new players are too cute.
>see someone trying to climb skatepark mid
>stand behind him and shoot the top of the ramp
>he falls down
>just re-inks and tries to climb again
>shoot the top again
>he falls down and runs away
I just let him kill me for the rest of the match. He turned out to be level 4.
How do you do it, /ink/?
I've seen some of you fucks go to like 10 wins in a row. I can barely manage to get 2.
How do I tryhard?
Anyone wanna squad? Feeling a bit too rusty to go solo.
A, because when I was an A-, every time I came within like 2 points of A, I'd lose 14 points. Splatoon seems to take more for losing if you're top of the team.
What's a good weapon, anon?
I have the bane of getting 300+mbps so Splatoon thinks I'm a goddamn perfect match for all the Japs. Never has a game made me hate a race as much as them.
only the greatest japanese twitter trend... of our time
Money is 0 for 2 now.
What will happen when a money Splatfest reaches the US?
I'm not the best but I do pretty good. My skills have gradually improved through time but I know that there are better players out there. I just pick weapons that get my interest and play them. I do my best to learn from my mistakes and from other people.
I want to go to the gym with Marie to do some light exercise; trying to ignore Callie's nearby deadlifts and super sets and capoeira practice.
This; they've got some tried and tested standards at this point. They wouldn't mix it up just to give 'the other one' a fighting chance. The sisters winning isn't what's important, it's their team.
>The sisters winning isn't what's important, it's their team.
Why do people keep thinking Splatfest is Callie vs Marie and that Nintendo needs to let one "win"
