Hey /ink/, have you rolled any good gear recently? What did you spend your snails on?
>What did you spend your snails on?
Trying to get triples on my Carbon and Bamboozler sets.
Only got doubles.
the oh but it's not spyke who has the woomy
As soon as you want nobody to wear anything else ever again.
Inkbrush comics give me life.
I haven't gotten a good roll in months. I want to re-roll my Squid Girl hat until it has 2 swim speed or something. I also want a Ninja Squid shirt with AT LEAST double swim speed.
I know NS isn't "good" but i enjoy it for ambushing
Anyone got Inkling Boy art? Seems like I mostly have Woomy stuff in my folder.
Why would you want pictures of Spaghetti's over the much superior Woomies?
I wonder how law enforcement works in a world where you can respawn
Ninja Squid is fun! FUN!
Yeah, I'd like to have Ninja Squid + 2main9sub Swim Speed just for the fun.
Just rolled my Squid Girl Hat a few days ago actually, wanna order it?
>tfw just got the trips I wanted within 10 rolls
Just one more piece of gear to finish my set, anybody wanna recommend me something? This is what I'm running right now:
Layered Anchor LS - 3 Power Up subs
Blue Moto Boots - 3 Run Speed Up subs
I was wondering what would be a good head piece to use. I only use the Golf Visor because it's the less ridiculous looking Run Speed Up main and I guess shortening my Super Jump would be nice. Should I go for trips on it, try dubs for something else or just use different gear? I use an L3 Nozzlenose D, by the way.
I want to slap Marie's ass
because there was a spider on it
I'd switch the shirt for the Rockenberg Black.
It's Damage Up main, and the brand influence is Run Speed - the inverse of the shirt you currently have.
Reason is that 3 subs is slightly weaker than 1 main, and this can make a difference for Damage Up, and even moreso for Burst Bombs. I'm too tired to go over the number now, but it's possible that you might miss the damage thresholds for kills with your current shirt.
For the hat, you could use the big helmet. Forge brand for a little extra Kraken duration.
Or maybe a Swim Speed hat? Bomb Range? Special Saver? 2-Stripe Mesh cap is pretty good.
You could also try to roll Run Speed dubs on a Comeback hat. The extra mobility and Sub Saver boost isn't bad (so you can throw 4 bombs then shoot a little).
This artist consistently draws Callie as the epithet of cuteness.
i can't sleep, /ink/... anyone up for some groggy squadding?
>Yeah, I'd like to have Ninja Squid + 2main9sub Swim Speed just for the fun.
Yeah, I want to have 13 hats, 13 clothing and 13 shoes with a quad of each of the stackable abilities.
A Ninja Squid with triple Swim Speed
A Stealth Jump with triple Quick Super Jump
A Tenacity with triple Special Charge Up
A Recon with triple Quick Super Jump
An Ink Resistance Up with triple Defense Up/Run Speed Up/Swim Speed Up
A Bomb Sniffer with triple Swim Speed Up
A Haunt/Comeback with triple Quick Respawn/Special Saver
A Cold-Blooded with triple Swim Speed Up/Run Speed Up
An Opening Gambit with triple Run Speed Up/Swim Speed Up
A Last Ditch Effort with triple Ink Saver (Main/Sub)/Ink Recovery Up
Thanks for the comment! I just ordered a Rockenberg Black, gonna have a fun time getting trips on it as well. As for the head gear, I was thinking of maybe going for a Def up main and try to get a couple of def up subs on it? These are the head pieces I have so far, most my triples are on tops and shoes.
>work literally every day last week
>last day off was on Christmas
>get woken up at 7am this morning by work trying to call me in to work on my day off today
How about you suck my dick instead. Also how are you squids this morning?
Defense up isn't very useful unless you're running at least 3 mains.
The guy you're replying to is retarded by the way, the difference between 3 subs and 1 main is less than 1%, which itself will never work out to more than 0.7 damage from a burst bomb. There is literally no reason to waste time, money and snails on a shirt that's functionally identical to the one you have.
Really wish people would stop giving bad advice to other players, especially the newer ones.
I know, right? I think this is the same idiot who wrote out all those posts praising ninja squid. I don't know what he gets out of intentionally misleading unsuspecting players like this.
You think she puts
salt on the rimin those tropical drinks?
No, that was me. I was recommending a sneaky set to try occasionally on particular maps and he blew up as if I was advising it be used constantly and permanently. He has a fixation with Swim Speed it seems.
I don't care how superior Callie is in every single respect.
Marie is still one sexy squid.
Just wait for Calamari to be attacked by Krakaiju, then the greater good will become apparent.
Now all that's left is whether they'd cope with merging their very dissimilar minds.
I saw there are airplanes in Splatoon
Does that mean that there is such a thing as a Woomy Air Force?
I'm not sure if they'd have conventional weaponry, since squid warfare in history has relied on using different inks to counteract and destroy each others internal structure.
It's safe to assume they'd have jets of sorts though; we know they've launched a space capsule already
What does Marie eat that causes 90% of her body to be comprised of sodium?
Oh yeah, Callie is truly /fit/ though
Don't say that, /fit/ doesn't know what fitness even looks like.
Callie's not muscly or huge, which are their standards, she's refined and powerful.
Marie's still stacked; the artist just uses the busty Octos for disparity with the Woomy
Callie is about as refined as a dump truck
and twice as powerful
By refined I mean every sinew of her being has the threshold of titanium. There's no need for muscles to bulge. She's a very compacted, very lethal little squid.
Payback for a few things really
Should I reroll these two for better stats? I love how they look together, but I feel Damage Up could be swapped for something better.
Damage Up doesn't do much for the Jr I don't think and only helps the 96 Gal if someone else is running defense up, so sometimes useful for prettty situational.
But Run Speed and Swim Speed are always pretty useful. So if you like the way it looks then it isn't a problem.
But if you really want a different main ability then try something with Special Charge Up/Special Saver. Always good with Kraken and Bubbler.
raspberries and kisses only, anon
i couldn't resist making a quick shitty coloring
Fuck my luck with rolls, i can't get a triple to save my fucking life but i can get them whilst unlocking the skills with ease. I've got more offbrand doubles through unlocks than i have through rolls i swear.
The wife bought me a refurb Wii U and Splatoon for christmas
I've played it like 12 hours since I got it, been really busy with work and only had one day off so far since Christmas
She tried it for the first time over the weekend and is now higher level than me and plays it way more
Proud feels, it's hard watching her play though because she's still pretty bad
That's pretty good! If you were up for it there's so much lineart out there that's begging for colors.
I PUT IMITATION CRAB MEAT AND AN UNUSED SOUP BASE IN MY RAMEN.
ALL THE CRAB UNFURLED INTO CRAB SHEETS AND IT'S SPICIER THAN I ANTICIPATED.

i-is she going commando?
Trips confirm all Octolings must be exterminated
Me too, they look cute.
Noob question, I don't understand how to use specials. I read that you're supposed to press the right analog stick but it never seems to work. Is there a meter I'm supposed to be watching or is there anything else to it other than pressing R3?
Sometimes when you smash a box a can of tuna pops out, if you pick it up it will give you either a Bubbler or Inkzooka which you activate with the stick. It's very helpful for getting past groups of Octopus.
Not sure if troll or not but top right mate.
If you are in the single player campaign you have to grab a special weapon item. They look like cans of tuna
My God this place can be cancerous sometimes. Do you really want to answer retarded questions and recommendations all day.
Lurk for a month in a general before posting and a year on a board.
>Studies show only 1 autistic neet gives a fuck but makes up 75% of the "LURK MOAR" posts!
Lurking for a whole year on a board? Lol, I suppose then all the new boards should be empty for a full year!
The best part of the box is how it intergrates everything from the game to test you. Should've had a longer Inkrail section that required you to dodge shit tho, or jumping from rail to rail.
Last two things were quad speed on squid hairclip, and triple respawn on reggae shirt. Saving up to roll triples on either the level 50 cap or the samurai hat. Only at 300k though, so I'm probably gonna need a splatfest first, because rolling amiibo gear anything less than at least 30 (and hopefully more) at a time is a nightmare.
I already know I'm going to get an nx no matter what because of spla2n. I hope they release a bundle that actually has a splatoon themed console. Were there any themed Wii Us? I know wwhd had the slightly detailed controller.
I've got like 130ish pictures, some solo some grouped
there really should be a wii u version of this
There were custom cases and covers, but I don't think there were Splatoon themed Wii U's.
I believe there were a ton of Wii U's bundled with Splatoon, which were so popular they sold out in Japan.
You can expect it to be a title to align with the NX, alongside the greats like Mario Kart and Smash Bros.
you're probably right, there might be some in japan but i don't believe there were any anywhere else. did the wii have any special editions or did it just come in a few colors like the n64/gamecube?
Don't think they'd bothered after the projected sales figures. There wouldn't be much demand for a chintzy version of a console that wasn't selling well.
Splatoon massively remedied that though, with loads of consoles flying with the copies.
Well, yeah, if it's some $700 abomination I'd be a little concerned, but they'd have to fuck up pretty massively to make me not want it. I have a hard time imagining it not being better than the Wii U, or being more than $400 (and $350 wouldn't surprise me either).
It satisfies the shooter-genre rush Nintendo fans wanted while being distant enough from Call of Duty that Nintendo fans don't feel guilty for liking it and Call of Duty fans know they can't brag about Nintendo copying them.
You have nearly zero chance if they're using Ninja Squid and it's not obvious where they've gone or land a lucky shot and hear where they are.
Other than that the more Swim Speed they have on the harder a time you'll have of tracking them with your cursor even though you see where they're moving.. Which is why people love it so much.
>accidentally bring the rapid pro into Ranked
>it ends up being a 4v3
>then they take it all the way to 24
I had the weirdest moment in a game. I shot someone with a fully charged splatterscope, it made the noise of a shot connecting, they didn't kraken or bubble, but they just didn't die. No explanation for that one.
one more for squad
join Jalen, CB Bleigh or clovervidi

God fucking damn it, now I'm in danger of dropping back to A+ for the first time in a couple months...
Nah man, I don't roll that way. I just fucking wish this game would let me play a match until the end. It must be japs, I'm sure, not enough westerners in S rank.
Anyone got anymore interesting things like this that are about the game?
>downloading a car while playing Splatoon

Judd picks a team anyway, even in Ranked.
>you will never live in a country that actually cares about the game to the point where the average person on the street would know about it
Judd knows what he's doing. He's pulling a lot of strings in this world
>In short it seems the balancing team not only made some seriously fresh combinations but also kept color psychology in mind for the game design.

These kind of posts never fail to make me laugh.
>all those lollipops
Are you me?
We need a new addiction.
i honestly didn't expect you to do the gun, great work
you gonna colour it?
>the multi-hit nature
This is a logical assumption to make and one I also had during the early days of the Aerospray.
But after testing and analysing people found out that the devs put in the greatest nerf to weaken the fastest firing weapons the most. A damage cap per shot. Effectively meaning the weaker the shot the less they benefit from damage up.
if 1 guy on your team dies and stays dead for the full 6 seconds, that's 12 points of special (assuming no other fluctuations either way). 1 special charge main shaves off 12 points on a 180p special. tenacity is definitely the better choice if you're any good at staying alive.
where did the whole "tenacity is bad" meme come from?
I like this addiction just fine.
Can't color it, not gonna bake it.
whats a good set up for mini splat
>some piece of shit keeps super jumping to me while I'm trying to ambush others
The problem with Tenacity is it's only active when teammates are dead and Quick Respawn teammates reduce special gain.
Special Charge+/Special Saver are more reliable when your teammates aren't getting shit on horribly.
There's also the fact you auto-build special in Ranked in some situations.
thatso is at it again lmao
I shovel down chocolate tootsie pops and a few cotton candy dum dums.
>Special Charge+/Special Saver are more reliable when your teammates aren't getting shit on horribly.
True, but it's not hard to build up your special without gear slots unless your teammates are getting shit on horribly and constantly losing 1v1s. Tenacity is just insurance.
>There's also the fact you auto-build special in Ranked in some situations.
When you're losing, which is hard to do with a numbers advantage. If you're at a consistent numbers disadvantage from your teammates constantly getting themselves killed, then you're probably losing as well. It's not like one cancels out the other, both sources of special stack together.
How is rank change even determined? It seems to be completely arbitrary. Doesn't seem to be based on rank difference, K/D or anything. The hell is it based on?
Played since Christmas, I'm stuck in limbo between B/B+ because the networking is a piece of shit and I get disconnects literally every second match, sometimes just in the lobby. Had one with 1 point before a win before and it's demoralising as shit. A little more forgiveness for a terrible connection completely out of my control would be appreciated.
I also noticed there's smurfs (or very shitty players) who are level 50 and still in this rank so what gives. I feel like I have a better grasp on the gamemode objective than some of them sometimes, like the ones that hover around the enemy spawn surrounded by enemy ink when they're all jumping anyway. Like what the fuck are you doing.
I'll admit this is partially something I'll pulling out my ass, not something I've heard from or discussed with others, but I think it depends on how much you rely on sticks for aiming.
If you aim the the sticks and use gyro for tinier actions such as staying on them or re-positioning, you're probably better off with a lower sensitivity, seeing as high sensitivity makes the sticks borderline unusable. But if you aim almost entirely with gyro (and only use the sticks to turn), you're probably better off on a higher sensitivity
Ultimately depends on how confrontational the map is. More confrontatioonal maps with less space to trade ink can benefit from Tenacity more, Special Charge up benefits in larger maps where it is easier to find inkable turf and larger maps also mean less dying teammates.
Just looking at number crunching videos will just lead to you giving up on Tenacity outright. Like the Great Gas Mask Exodus.
Point gain/loss is determined by your Rank and also the Rank spread across both teams. So you end up with bullshit like getting less points for a win because your team outranks the enemy, or losing more points because your team outranked players better than them.
This. Just ignore shitposting.
Depends on the weapon. the more range the accuracy you need the lower sensitivity, the lower the range the more you need to be able to rotate the higher sensitivity you need.
Just for getting ysed to it, you may want to start out balanced and then be able to shift either way. Or just go full hard mode and become the best using E-Liter 3K with max sensitivity then everything else will be a breeze.
>needing all that speed
do you even support
>he doesn't save his special to make key pushes for KOs
Literally what the fuck is the point of the Sloshing Machine when you have the regular Slosher?
I can't think of a single thing the Machine does better other than having a slightly better horizontal hitbox.
Epic. I bet you've never died, ever. Like, not even once. Only shitters die.
Wow. I could understand not liking Splat Zones, but Tower Control is great and Rainmaker can be as fun as Turf War.
all of you. it was so good, and you guys fucking ruined it.
someone post lewd woomies or something fuck this general
I like Callie, but not quite as much as I like her cousin, Marie.
I also respect the opinion of anyone who disagrees with me or thinks differently on this subject.
>ass really starts hurting during a match
>uncomfortable for the next 3 minutes
>Marie knows she's the worse sister
>Always insults Callie at every opportunity
>after another defeat after splatfest's results are announced, Marie knows she will never win
>no matter if she has the popular option or the better color, no one would dare pick Marie's side for their hatred of Marie holds strong
>She looks at Callie, smiling at the camera as usual.
>"It's not fair. Why does she always get to be the one who wins? she's always so happy. I really hate her stupid fucking grin..."
>soft tentacle pillows
Not for me cause it usually means that ray Charles can beat them in a shooting competition.
