    It would be OK if you could communicate with your team mates. Even if just to at least nominate one person in defence.

    I think the idea is that you get to pass the balls around, but the fact they disappear after a few seconds on the ground negates this.

    I played 4 games last night, each one of which we started a squid down. So you have to battle through 4 minutes being behind with no chance of winning. I hope Nintendo sort this out, how hard is it to put someone else in?

    Ranked modes generally don't have join-in-progress, and if they added it you'll find a large section of the community will despise it. There's really no easy fix there. That said, letting the same person back in would prevent them being replaced with a far stronger player, which is the main issue with letting a new player in.

    Some kind of rudimentary bot replacement like in CSGO would help, at least. At least if the player disconnects you don't lose any rank.

    Players who regularly idle in matches should get matchmaking bans. It should detect it and tread them like a disconnect.

    After a shaky start I jumped right from C- to B- in Clam Blitz which is nice.

    I actually quite like it, you basically DM until someone gets a power clam ready, then you have to work together to deliver it or kill whoever has it. If there's many in play you have to attack and defend at the same time, it's pretty good.

    Played for the first time in a while yesterday and it showed, but did enjoy playing splatzones.

    I've just had the best game of Rocket League i've ever had. It might be time to switch over to Splatoon, now.

    Is anyone up for joining a team battle for the Splatfest? I plan to be, but we'd all need to pick the same team. I haven't picked yet so if anyone fancies it, let me know and which team you're on. We'd need four players on the same team.

    I'd love to, but I can't commit to anything at the moment. :(

    I might be up for it - probably team action.

    @vyseofhr Cheers for the games earlier. I needed a pick-me-up after 2 weeks of Aussie flu. That was just the tonic.

    If you fancy some team Splatfest action tomorrow night, I'll be around for that. Go Team Action.

    @Duffking I've gone for Team Action, so if we can get pk1980 et al to join aswell, a team might be viable.

    Right, I'll open a room at 8. If we could get 4 players, that'd be great.

    I am Comedy and my random teams have been murdering action fans all afternoon.

    Which is quite ironic when you think about it.

    I really can't stand starfish mainstage, at all. It seems like it always leads to a spawn rape fest, to a degree much higher than any other map.

    @Duffking If you think that's bad, wait 'till you get a load of Shellendorf Institute. Camping the opposition spawn seems to be the only way to win.

    It is an issue with Musselforge fitness, too. I think generally Splatoon 2 is worse for spawn camping, but it's still fairly rare on the whole. I only ever seem to notice it when the teams have become unbalanced due to a disconnect.

    OK, I've opened a room for team battles. There are 4 of us online playing the game.

    Voden, Duffking and Adam? Join up!

    On my way if there's space. If not i'll play alone. I had no idea i'd be home alone this evening and I've still no idea for how long. :/

    We're going to get this appalling shitfest of a map every time aren't we?
