    Or not. Same thing happening on this room. Full room, but matches won't start. Only had 1 match in the past 20 minutes. :/

    Might just leave it there for tonight. Cheers for the games. Won 3 all evening! :o

    It might be yet more Virgin media issues my end. Just tried Fortnite and I can't do anything but run around. Can't shoot or jump.

    Yeah, tried a couple of games and I was not getting hits so uploaded some videos.

    Cheers for the games. Game still feels fresh.

    Any beginner tips on aiming?

    I am a very average fps player. The last game I extensively played was Titanfall 2 and for me a good round meant 8-10 kills. :-)

    With Splatoon I mostly focus on painting everything because I aim like crap. Even more so in this game than other shooters because of the arc of the paint I guess? I find it difficult to get to grips with this.

    Is this a thing with Splatoon and do I need to know more about the way the paint shoots out of a weapon. Where to aim so to speak? Or is it really only my lack of general fps skills?

    Cheerio!
    I would start off with some of the more forgiving weapons. The tri-slosher, octobrush, or clash blaster are a good place to get a feel for aiming and how the mechanics work.

    I've started using the Forge and am really enjoying it but I couldn't use it at all when I started playing as you need to land the first shot really to pin the enemy in place, and I'd usually miss.

    Have they changed the standard slosher? Its been a while since I last used it, but it seems to have longer range. That and it takes two to three hits, rather than one or two.

    @DangerousDave_87 Correct, the latest update:

    Reduced maximum damage when hitting a target with the base of the ink from 70.0 to 50.0.

    @DangerousDave_87 Are you in Bristol? I'm in Yatton at the weekend for a wedding. Anything to do in the area?

    @Jono62 Depends what you're into. The harbour is pretty good for food and drink. There's plenty of choices. Biblos do amazing wraps. Bertha's Pizza does great stone baked pizza. The Mud-Dock is great for a few pints. There's an escape room nearby, if that's your thing. There's some nice views all along the harbour and a free museum (M-Shed).

    If it wasn't November, I'd recommend Cabot Tower (in Brandon Hill Park) or the Suspension Bridge. Great views, but pretty cold now.

    Seems to take longer to find a game every time.

    This has taken a while. I thought the group was going to be thrown back to the lobby.

    That last game looked a bit suspect. Thought my side clearly painted more there. Edit to add screenshot:

    Cheers for the games, Thingy. That was great fun, as usual.

    @Thingy Wow. That's the worst game I've ever had. That was impossible to leave the base. That map has a huge flaw.

    Win or lose, that's not fun. That's pretty broken. Might come back when the maps have changed.

    @Thingy I've never seen it that bad. I know that map had some balancing issues in the first game, but those two matches were really bad.

    I've had a few beatings on the skatepark recently in that I couldn't get out of the base. Have they changed it up?

    New weapons coming

    Im guessing not as thats what happened to me and Thingy last night. I lost one game and won another in that fashion. You don't even need all four players in order to pin the other team in.

    I suppose a coordinated attack could see you break free, but the odds of getting outside the spawn point unscathed are next to zero.

    I think that's the first time I've played that map in Turf War for a long, long time. It usually comes up on Ranked modes a lot, but have rarely played it otherwise. I'm happy to skip over that map until a fix is found.

    @DangerousDave_87 Its never been that bad before, however I understand why it's better for ranked especially Splat zones.

    @Thingy I finally get why swim speed is actually very good.
