    @Ienjoysquid and Jono Cheers chaps, good games.

    We've all been on those winless streaks where we just can't buy a win and yet we keep pressing the go again button.

    A few seem to have beat the addiction. I'm not sure I will.

    Cheers squid and Thingy. Thought I'd end on a two game win streak. It did feel like it wouldn't end but I was playing well which is all you can ask.

    Booyah bomb isn't great. Got to learn how to use it.

    Apparently it charges faster if everyone on your team starts hitting DOWN on the D-Pad. Fucking ridiculous.

    @Thingy I do like the Splattershot Pro weapon.

    No worries. I'm having a wild time taking out people who've never used the Splattershot Pro before. :)

    When you click on friends, it shows who has a Mic or not.

    I'd guess in game talk.

    Cheers for the games. That was much fun. The bomb is actually pretty good once you understand how to use it. Forgot how much I love the Splattershot Pro, but I forget it eats through ink quickly.

    Time to watch The Apprentice and see what idiots are about.

    Voice chat? Through the App or in game?

    @Jono62 Cheers Jono. TV is a foreign land to me these days. I aim to keep it that way.

    Other Changes

    Voice chat will now be available via the Nintendo Switch Online smart device app when playing with friends in certain modes, even when creating rooms without selecting “Online Lounge.”

    Players can also choose not to enable voice chat when creating rooms in this way.

    This applies to the following modes which previously functioned with the Online Lounge feature: League Battle, Private Battle, Splatfest Battle (Normal) with friends, With Friends (Salmon Run).

    So still shit.

    That’s all still so ridiculous.

    If you can get over the fact it’s on an app in the first place, and I probably could, then why not just do voice chat like Mario Kart and enable it in every lobby?

    Just had a look and you can indeed now enable voice chat through the app when creating a room in League Battle. 1 step forward. Another few hundred to go.

    The issue I have is I use gaming headphones when using the Switch as I play handheld exclusively. It would be great to have voice chat through game.

    Although, some of the most fun I had gaming was Mario Kart on the Wii while chatting to fine folks on Skype :)

    Did this game become really spammy in the last couple of months or something?

    Haven't really played, but it's basically just all blasters and sloshers now.

    Plus I can't aim any more. Any suggestions for improving quick?

    @Duffking I've not really noticed anything different with weapon selections. You normally get an uptick in the use of new weapons when they are released (a few were released yesterday) but it quickly settles back down as people realise there's no real advantage to using them.

    Can't help you with aiming, that's just practice. Maybe go back to a short range/rapid fire weapon 'till you get your eye in?

    @Duffking I sometimes can't aim. Don't know why! I want to shoot in one area but my brain and fingers say no.

    New weapons have come in so they'll get used for a bit.

    @Thingy I've gone back to the Nzapp. As much as I like the Splattershot Pro, it's an ink killer and I was getting splattered in one on one's too much.

    @Jono62 Yeah, you need to know the range on the Pro and use it to your advantage. It changes all the angles on the maps. And stack your gear with Ink Saver (Main).

    edit: I prefer the Pro on Tower Control as you can provide a lot of support and cover for the frontline weapons like N-Zaps and and Splat-Rollers.

    @Thingy I went straight to my old fave the Neo Splash which maybe wasn't the best choice. It's rapid fire but not great for range and pretty aim heavy. I might go for something like plain old splattershot next time until I get my groove back.

    @Thingy Two ink saver mains is perfect for the Splattershot Pro.

    @Jono62 You should get an email giving you extra gear for signing up to the online service.

    Anyone playing tonight?
