>At the end of the month on January 30th, at 10 AM, the "Inkzooka" will be displayed at Tokaigi. The tornado shaped ink is fired in a straight line, and it can be used to both paint and attack, making for a powerful weapon. It's in the sets of the Aerospray MG, the Carbon Roller, among others.
This diminutive Callie reminds me; did that Mamnenmei artist ever draw the Squid Sisters?
yes, for karaoke culture day!
>nyan nyan nyan nyan clams~
hey... no one ever said karaoke had to be good!
Meow meow meow clams?
Oh Callie, you adorable retard.
>effectively in high tier games
probably something like the inkbrush, its mental gymnastics trying to figure out where people will be and how to position yourself accordingly to intercept them
i'd say the nozzlenose for people who dont know how to use it, followed by the rapid blaster without damage up.
I want to hug her and squeeze her and kiss her and FUCK I love her so much!
Oh hey, thanks!
I wasn't actually expecting anything for the next few days, didn't you have a full order queue?
I think Marie's tentacles would be much doughier than Callie's; like pudding versus a lean tender.
I have multiple USBs. I ordered your shoes on one of them.
So every morning it will be
>Write to Wii U with your order
>reload save if order fails
>switch to my usb
>Write to Wii U
>check my own Order
>reload my own save if fail
But Spyke was generous and already is giving me a second shot it seems.
Marie looks precious with her hair down. Callie just looks encumbered.
I want to encumber on Callie's tentacles
i was rolling for either super jump or damage up, but i guess this isnt terrible.
dropped about 400k on it, i guess ill keep it.
and i guess while ive got the browser open, anyone want to help me orderscum a triple jump on this? shouldnt be terribly hard.
/ink/'s constant tears that somebody would dare use something unconventional is always a delight.
Whenever someone says Ninja Squid is bad I wonder if they've ever actually used it or if they're just listening to /ink/ meme about shit.
i can tell you im probably the only person who runs ink saver sub as a main slot. i just like how i can throw 4 burst bombs without emptying my tank, can get at least 3 shots in too.
I tried Ninja Squid without any Swim Speed once, just for curiosity's sake.
It was fucking torture. I'm used to having Swim Speed, and this was the complete opposite. It felt like I'd been hit with a permanent Disruptor.
The sluggish movement, the low top speed, yuck. They nerfed Ninja Squid into the ground. Sure, you can just stack Swim Speeds, but 2 mains and a bunch of subs barely normalizes the effect. That's pretty much your entire loadout used on invisible swimming and normal swim speed.
It's a niche ability that's useful sometimes, but you have to give up so much for it.
It'd be like if Ink Resistance halved your Run Speed. Any time you're not on enemy ink, you'd waddle around at SSPro speeds. Would it be worth it?
When you swim right around a Splash Wall and beat the shit out of the Gal on the other side, you'll know its merit.
It will never be a meta ability but it will always be rewarding.
i'm surprised Marie didn't want to go to the past since she loves money and all.
Marie didn't get her dildo phone, but she did get a laser.
And despite that I think Callie would manage to win their fight using her weapon.
That isn't that bad, everyone seems to have quad swim speed clips or shoes. So it's only 1 piece of clothing.
Plus with only 3 subs it goes up to 96%, and the difference between it and 100% is barely noticeable, at least to me.
Here's a rarer kind of Momma squid.
>Callie rubbing her crotch on Marie's leg
>never my leg
Pretty sure Marie is shoving it there. She's the ringmaster of lewd.
MORE SQUID MOMMAS
longer tentacles look good on Marie, or at least letting them down would look nice. You just can't be a bitch and have short 'hair'. It doesn't work that way. There's no sign of maintenance.
In actuality if you measure Marie's tentacles within her bun, they're about normal length, so they're by no means short.
Meanwhile Callie's are up to 1.5 times her whole body height, so naturally Marie's are laughed at as being small by comparison, when really they're just average.
Hey, Marie would be a great Mom given the chance. She only cares about herself, and since children are an extension of the self, she'd surely do good by them.

HEADS UP SHITCUNTS
IT'S TIME FOR WAIFU POSTING
Isn't it missing a few things?
Just picked up these two for Garry's Mod.
Marie is sadly dead now, but it's pretty liberating to finally be able to play with Callie's tentacles. They feel so meaty!
Definitely gonna have a lot of fun with this thing.
Still haven't figured out how to make them stand easily; which is understandable considering they shouldn't have bones; but any program that lets you lie Callie down, give her a tan, and wink at you is an instant winner in my books.
I fucking hate that program, but i'll throw you a bone
there should be an anchor tool you can use to keep things in place, but I last played that godforsaken thing 3 years ago so anything could have changed.
Also if you are the same person that I last gave advice to, turn AA on, its for everyones sake.
Squiboys are for cute not lewd.
Options > video > advanced >Antialiasing
then set that shit as high as possible to remove jagged edges, it doesnt matter if the program slows down because last i checked you were trying to take pictures and thats just a still image.
a little texture filtering won't hurt for the backgrounds but im fairly certain it wont do much for callie and marie.
Wow, that is a hell of a difference. It seems to work fine at x8 despite recommending the lower settings, and the tentacles are so damn shiny now I can see the world reflected in them.
This probably just made the program worth investing in; thanks a ton anon.
>waiting for losers to play
>playing the shittiest gamemode
this is the incorrect decision
you ARE good enough to maintain your rank, right? it wasnt all just a fluke and youre holding on to something youre not, RIGHT?
thats the thing, you shouldnt stress about it
just play the fucking game, wherever you get put is where you belong. people waste shittons of time trying to hold on to their precious A/S that they start making stupid plays and drop themselves lower. just play as if it were a squad and get over yourself if you lose your rank.
if you are a good enough player you'll get it back, and if not you get put where you belong.
My point exactly; which is why I'd rather keep that A Rank I spent two months trying to reach and instead main TW.
It's momentary value, but I refuse to beat myself up over being subpar at a childrens painting game.
can't bring the Wii to college next month
is the mini splatling any good? I really like the way it looks and feels but I'm not sure if the wind-up speed to damage-output/range is good? I think I like it, but the past few times I've used it, I've been getting creamed.
The win animation is also adorable...
i mean youre allowed to do what you want but im telling ya, the faster you stop looking at that little letter and number at the end of each match, the sooner you'll have fun in ranked.
used to loathe every ranked game i lost, now i just forget about it and try to figure out what i did wrong.
as soon as i did this i went from S 10 to S 90 in the span of an afternoon
Yeah, the Zink's Secondary is a Disruptor, which is basically a Flashbang that slows your target, and the Special is a Bubbler, which you should know as the force field.
Put those two together and you are one tough bastard to fight.
Range and damage wise it's pretty good. You just need to get used to its picky fire-and-release method.
I never had fun in Ranked; I find this game is considerably more enjoyable to sit back and paint the earth while shooting anybody in your way than bust your ass over an objective. And in a game that's this fun and colorful and Nintendo-like, I'll always go with the fun option.
My only goal now is to get 999,999 points on my favorite weapon. Forget Ranks.
cool, thanks for the advice. been using the zap 89 before I got into the splatling, so I'm more used to inkstrike, but it sounds like those alts are pretty good. I'll pick up the zink, then, considering I've been pretty useless with the inkzooka.
I still see people argue this, now lets settle this debate once and for all!
Personally I find N-Zaps much more respectable than Splatlings, but good luck with those.
For the record you can stack Run Speed and the Zaps just fly around. Fastest weapon in the game TWN.
How lewd is too lewd?
> I find N-Zaps much more respectable than Splatlings
What do you find so offensive about the Splatling family?
good to know, haven't abandoned the n-zap, but I've been having fun with the mini splatling, so it's nice to mix things up. haven't had a chance to really dig into splatoon (lvl 18), but now I have some more time on my hands, I'm excited to get back into it.
on a side note, is future the superior choice? I have an undying love for dinosaurs, but the future sounds so much more exciting.
From what we've seen, the popular teams are usually at a disadvantage, and from surface value Future seems to have more fans.
Really choose whichever you like; the payoff for choosing the winner is pretty insignificant that early in the game. It's only 6 more snails over the 18 you would've had otherwise.
I want to see Callie ride a Triceratops by using her tentacles as reins.
good lord it's been awhile since i've seen this
i finished this awhile ago anon, or maybe you just prefer that version?
>bust your ass over an objective
But that is turf wars objective. I like that turf war places the least emphasis on the winner being the one who can best splat the opponent. It makes it feel like it has more depth. Like it is more than just a shooter.
Honestly, splatting opponents in TW is just as important as in any other mode. If you're dead, then you can't ink the ground, plain and simple. Not to mention you leave behind a puddle of enemy ink, which helps the opposing team in TW more than in any other mode.
It's true you can win a TW match without the most splats, but then again I've had ranked matches where everyone on out team had a negative k/d going on, but we still won. gotta play the objective.
but yeah, I do like TW's concept quite a bit as well. also the only mode where last ditch effort is worth using at all
There are worse things for your daughter to love in these times
Actually my Slosher set but not too bad on Machine
I feel like I could take on the world. Even if i'm probably just kicking the shit outta some kids.
Slosher is my main and machine is my secondary. There's no such thing as too much damage up when dealing with lag and the defence up meta. This way I can do the required hits and get away somewhat sure that people will either actually die, be weakened enough they won't continue chasing or shoot me from beyond the grave
well what i said was mostly in response to the sloshing machine, didnt read till after that you mained the slosher.
with the damage up, it seemed like you were going for the rapid blaster method of making the direct hit as close to 99.9 damage as possible, but frankly i dunno why people do that unless theyve got a sub or something else that also benefits from damage up.
Swim speed isn't something I care about considering my team mates seem to either go for splats or tunnel vision the objective with no thought for map control and movement.
As for ink management I find I play worse when I have too much inksaver abilities. This is the sweet spot when I have just enough. The only other ability I use is QR and that's usually 1 main. 2 at most
Anyone have a quad damage up snorkel mask I can order off them?
How to get gud at ranked splat zone?
I've been doing okay when my team has some brains because once we control the center I know to try to kill enemies and keep them away, but when one person on my team is a shitter and wants to play ranked turf war and we lose the center, I'm REALLY bad at attacking into an area fortified by 4 inklings.
tl:dr how to attack into unfavorable terrain and gain the upper hand without dying
I do try to attack when one or two of them are pushing as well, but I don't know what to do when they just paint randomly without care for being instantly splatted
I feel like I would do better in B rank than my C rank because every other match I have to deal with some twit either painting irrelevant parts of the map or doing the old stare at sky / feet back at spawn
Is aerospray alright in ranked if you're trying to support your team? I'm not the best with the chargers and if I'm using a roller I die to everything because I can't ranged counter attack.
I seem successful with it in the low ranks by helping spray walls for tactical movement and I seem to be able to kill everything rather quickly provided they don't see me first
depends on the map
if its something with alternate routes and your teammates are barreling down the middle, run around and shoot the other team in the back.
if its pretty closed or theyre holding you from going anywhere, get your special. in SZ probably the best idea is to run suction bomb rush, kraken or inkzooka just to be able to come back from a tough game, and the enemy wont have any problems giving you free special points if you shoot the ground near them. just trade turf until youve got enough to stage a rebellion.
i make squads once in a while, and lurk a good little bit. either ill put it as part of my squad invite message, or just ask in a few days and ill probably see it.
could also set my friend message on the wii u to "got it" or something once i do.
i will never for the life of me find the spark to be good with the krak-on, carbon, or either of the brushes.
i always misjudge the range for flinging/swiping and end up dead. sometimes ill end up with like 12 kills but its completely random and usually caused by kraken.
Not really a weapon but I can't use the kraken for shit. I tend to get myself killed coming out of it too, after i've uselessly painted some irrelevant place and killed nothing
wtf, down 50 points. fuck you MM, what is so hard about doing the objective you fuckers, it flashes on the screen before the match.
I'm literally throwing myself in the enemies chokepoint, going fucking terminator every single fucking match with a normal fucking roller while being on the verge of death at every second hoping to god that my teammates are smart enough to paint the shit then help camp the enemy out.
I swear people are extra retarded when its SZ.
gonna make an effort to get better subs on the clip.
4 slot just means the main slot and all of the subs are the same ability
same ability stuff is most commonly gotten from brands that arent influenced, like KOG or cuttlegear, and are otherwise gotten as "offbrands", which are much less common and are usually obtained through hours of rolling.
gotta use it as a cheap invincibility or as a means of killing unsuspecting fucks.
unless the guy who you popped it for is a retard and decides to sit and shoot, ignore him. either find other people to drill, use your paint trail to help with the objective (mainly rainmaker), or get the fuck out of there.
if youre chasing someone and the timer is running low, remember you can always super jump out. its usually quick enough so that you wont die while launching, but if youre nervous you can always launch while youre still in kraken mode.
>i use 15 different outfits because i dont know which one suits me!
people like you are the reason squads want to kill themselves, swapping every round to find what "fits" at that very moment. pick whichever benefits your gameplay the most and stick with it for christs sake.
I can imagine 4 people from the same team on 4 different forum boards all making this same rant.
Everybody wants to be top k/d terminator, nobody wants to be objective-pushing, guinea squig bait.
That's the jobby.
I prefer different abilities at different times depending on mode, map and team mates. If I'm playing TC and RM the QR heavy outfit comes out. For Splat Zones or with good team mates I have only one QR and the rest is ink and damage up. With damn good team mates it's all strength up. For Turf War it's nothing but ink savers and no DU
>I tried Ninja Squid without any Swim Speed once, just for curiosity's sake.
tfw i did the very same thing last night. I don't think I've ever had a more torturous experience. Ninja Squid by itself is practically pointless since you can slow tilt at almost the same speed. The ability only pays with a fuckload of Swim Speed Ups. But yeah the trade-off is huge and if you dont find the perks of swimming undetected are worth that trade-off, then Ninja Squid is definitely a waste.
From what i've experienced, that sounds about right.
People can use whatever clothes they fucking feel like using and they can leave the room when the match ends if they feel like it and there's nothing you can do about it besides bitch about it.
it shows she's pretty weak
by going to the past she has the upper hand on every living creature there, with the mighty future (present) power
coupled with her tentacle, she's OP
you sound like the type of person who loses a lot of games before deciding on a weapon/gear set to use, only for that set to fail you the next day
the true elite know their strengths and weaknesses and have finely crafted a set that benefits their every need in any situation. the lower class make excuses like "their abilities countered mine" or "i can wear whatever i want whenever i want"
"Fun" is just an excuse that shitters use to deflect critics. If you're playing Splatoon for "fun" then you should get the fuck out of the competitive community and stick to single player. We're not here to have fucking fun.
There's outfits I like but I don't have the patience for offbrand rolls or quads so every is on brand and generally matched across outfits rather than one article of clothing have all the ability I need
first of all the genre is called ASSFAGGOTS
second why would knowing your strengths and weaknesses invalidate your ability to have fun? if youre using all kinds or random shit game in and game out, youre changing all kinds or variables that could affect the decisions you make.
for example, if you use a swim speed loadout then move on to a quick respawn one, chances are you might still have the swim speed mindset and make a stupid decision based on that. at least when you use the same gear every time, you know what situations you can handle and which you cant. its simple.
and thats fine, as long as youre not picking different shit every game. two or three base outfits is perfectly fine.
thanks for your contribution to the conversation.
man i love splatoon but
"losing is temporary, looking cool is forever"
looking cool is good but irrelevant to wars
having massive combat skill regardless of abilities is priority
besides, looking top cool and still losing makes it more all more embarrasing
plus using starting rags while still dominating everyone else is the true way of eternal cool
How did you get to S rank?
Some of you really don't deserve it.
>this desperate to defend how unfresh your tryhard set makes you look
not gonna debate this much but at least with savescumming you can choose from the alternate clothes to get decent main/sub abilites as well as a decent looking squid. it at least wastes time.
>being a tryhard faggot
>doesn't even own the game yet
old ass picture but
you learn a few things about SPEED with a brush
to be completely honest splatoon's skill cap is relatively low. you get the gist of the game after single player, and the only thing to gain after that is some subtle stuff, some decision making, and aiming.
its not like if youre unfresh youll magically be better at the game or have a deeper understanding of it, youll just have slightly better stats in one or two areas. people run all damage up because they want to kill faster. it doesnt improve their skill.
Do squids need to bathe?
They probably get quite sweaty from running around all the time
again, you dont really "git gud". all of it is decision making, deciding whether youre going to throw your lifeless husk at the tower or try to find a way in through the back. you could be god's gift to splatoon, but if you dont know what to do in a tight spot youre gonna end up as cannon fodder like every other carried S player.
and its not good to totally disregard abilities, you should suit them to how you play. if you throw a lot of bombs, get ink saver sub. if youve got a problem with echolocator, get cold blooded. it doesnt matter what the meta is or isnt, you can basically get away with anything as long as it works with what you aim to do.
this game gave me a fetish for sweaty girls
That's the entire point of sub saver that people tend to miss before saying its a shit ability. A lot of subs chug a lot of ink, so having a little bit more can cause you not to she because you were trapped because you ran out of ink.
okay, im now absolutely convinced people just throw games they dont think they can win
guy on the other team's running up with the rainmaker to the volcano, and the blaster on our team is sitting in spawn spamming booyah. i kill the guy with some burst bombs and blaster reluctantly walks out and inks some turf.
PLAY THE GAME
Do you have proof of what I wear?
Do you have screencaps of my performance?
Have you seen me play?
Have you seen what weapons I use?
I regularly use 2 weapons for squads or solo with clothes that give the abilities that I want while looking fresh.
I got my S solo. I was stuck in A- and A. I went to A+ in a squad and from there I went to S. So far, I have deranked to A+ once but I quickly went back to S.
>jap carbon launches a seeker at me
>jump over it like i usually do
>seeker explodes under me despite not being near any obstacles, walls and nowhere near its max range
>must have exploded because the seeker actually hit me on his screen
regional matchmaking when?
Nah mate that's a retarded assumption while making an ass out of yourself. Go ahead and jack off to the thought that you believe yourself to be mentally superior while I was actually at work dumbass.
>stacking damage up is skill
>wanting to use a clownsuit instead of fresh ass clothing with beneficial subs and mains
>being this much of a fag before you even have the game
Come on now.
This is a beautiful picture. Name of artist?
I wonder if squids even can sweat.
There you go again with your stupid assumptions. I was there for the whole day and my coworker went to the restroom. I needed to wait for him to come back for safety regulations. I used that time to call you a retard and I'll use my time again to say that you're birth was a mistake.
For the record I do that too. Browse and save; don't need to openly salivate over them.
Given Inklings are liquid based it would make sense for their bodies to absorb some water through moisture in the air or vapor or any other source of the element. And since water evidently weakens their internal structure, it would make sense for their bodies to have some system to secrete said water.
So in some manner, yes, Inklings probably would sweat.
Same policy applies for tears.
Safety regulations are there for a reason. I don't want to be sent to the hospital cause I was being retarded. Besides, my boss knew that I was waiting for my coworker and he knows that I have good work ethics.
thats why you need to shatter his expectations
stand at absolute attention, with unwavering discipline to do whatever task is required of you, be it waiting for a coworker or your normal job.
instead you decided to browse an anime website and look at pictures of squid people.
the workplace is not for dillydaddle.
I have a worse drug addiction than Spyke.
I just want drugs.
I want them so bad I can't concentrate on the game.
I have been there for 4 years and I have performed better than some of the people who have been there longer than that. My boss' boss has personally congratulated me.
fuck you I can do whatever I want in my free time
Well that just depends on what Marie smells like then. I bet she smells like the ocean and expensive perfume.
with that attitude you'll never BE your boss' boss. instead you'll stay among the working class, content with whatever effort you personally deem "acceptable". you'll consider yourself the best among others, but who are they? theyre low, nothing but losers with a dead end mindset, and theyll never get anywhere. you'll go through different jobs, and maybe you'll be the "best" at all of them, but none of that matters when you cant be anything more than that. that thinking will one day fail you.
you can only reach the top if you aim to be the best. the very best. focus on your one job, do unexpected things and reach new heights, like the great men who have come before you. making excuses like "i can do whatever i want" or "my boss knows i have good work ethics" will keep you where you are.
be the best anon. the best.
Damn dude you just don't want to admit that you're being stupid? The more you post, the dumber you sound. I know how to accept orders and give out orders. I'm at my current job until I have the credentials for the career I want.
Being the systems bitch and thinking you'll always be rewarded for your efforts
Yes you should try your hardest for the best chances but don't delude yourself into thinking your reward is predetermined.
None of this really equates to browsing squid pictures will taking a shit at work.
The Custom Hydra Splatling makes its entrance tomorrow (1/15) at 6:00 pm PT. Put out fires for your allies from a safe distance with this water-hose like main weapon and the Sprinkler sub it comes with. If the action gets too hot, pop your Bubbler and get outta there!

you may not be rewarded, but you can sleep easy knowing that you did the best you could possibly do, and thats the greatest reward of all, isnt it.
I like how casually they posted it.
You're not giving me any advice. You're just mocking me. You're making assumptions when you have no idea what I'm doing in life, which I'm doing something to advance forward. Now shut up and post squids.

It's much more usable than the awful kit standard has since it covers Hydras weaknesses.
It's still highly probably Hydra will be ass until it gets buffed.
It's absolute hell when fighting aware E-Liters on it, especially when there's 2 to lock down both sides.

Seen this picture at least a hundred times and only now do I notice she's blushing.
I thought the idea was somebody got busy while she had her back turned, but no, she's very much aware of what's going on. That's pretty hot.
>that bucket using burst bomb throwing turbo skank
I'm salty. Room is back up Shabu.
I had a 14 game winstreak earlier. never been so proud for doing something so useless in life. Was 15-1 with 1500 points one game. But before that... my teammates were something else. I would have 1000 points as an octobrush, and two n-zap 89s on my team had 500-600 each. wat
I would even afk for the last 30 seconds in the game and still have more points than my teamz
And OH MY GOD I just realised I went against whitehawke after posting this on instagram. I was just posting it because 3 level 50s lost against a level 4
Just a question, but I rolled triple special duration on a gas mask some time ago and now i've been seeing people with similar masks in some of my games. Is that just a coincidence or have people really been ordering that thing from me/others?
