    @Brewer How are you finding the game?

    Cheers for the games Thingy and Brewer.

    Hey Brewer, in that last game we had as teammates, I was dabbing in front of you to get you to follow me and have my back as I launched an offensive, not for any annoyance at you. It only occured to me that you might take it the wrong way after the fact. Non-verbal communication on the field of play is quite important in this game given the lack of voice chat. Hope you'll keep at it.

    Cheers for the games chaps. Good fun as always.

    Morning all. Glad I finally got some games with you chaps and sorry I'm still quite crap but it's just a fun game. Unlike Mario Kart where it used to frustrate me this game keeps a smile on my face no matter how good or bad I'm doing.

    My youngest is teaching me stuff - how he finds it out is beyond me, like getting to other parts of the map quickly (still haven't figured it, always seem to get killed while I'm messing with the buttons!!).

    @Thingy Still learning and I must confess I hadn't twigged.

    My report - must do better and concentrate more.

    Hopefully I'll catch up with you all again real soon.

    As an aside what weapons do you find best?

    And also the game isn't great at explaining what certain icons mean.

    Arrows are teammates superjumping to another player. The yellow drains from the arrow the closer they get. It can mean easy splats or they have a special ready and try and use it before you notice.

    If a circle is around you, it means misses are locked to you. The circles on the floor are where the misses will hit.

    My favourite weapons are Splattershot Jr, Bloblobber, Nzapp 95, the needle looking one, gal .52 and Splattershot Pro. It all depends on my mood. I have the most fun using Bloblobber or a roller. I am pants with the sniper.

    May have to get new joy cons. Tried the trick with compressed air and it worked for a bit but they still drift.

    @brewer if you are going to use gal .52 or Splattershot Pro, be warned, they drain ink quickly.

    Oh man! I delayed buying it too! For the best I guess. Too many games now play already.

    A month since the last post on the Splatoon thread! Are people still playing.

    I am wondering if my online problems actually stem from my own internet.

    When we had Sky I was climbing the ranks like a king. As soon as we switched to BT I am grovelling in the gutters like a weasel.

    I since found out that the matchmaking is done by ping. According to BT my ping is 9ms, but is it really? IS IT REALLY BT?

    Websites take a while to respond, nothing is really snappy. Could it be the game is measuring my real ping at something much higher and then matchmaking me with people with similarly awful internet?

    Tenta missiles got a buff and I (briefly) made it to X Rank on Tower Control.

    I'm trying to update Splatoon 2 and the download is not doing anything. It's downloaded updates for other games so it's not the connection. Very annoying.

    I've finally uninstalled Fortnite. Can't believe I clocked nearly 200 hours on it. It's not that special, obviously. I guys I just like the survival aspect.

    Anyways, Splatoon 2 will certainly be my go-to shooter again from now on. I've got a lot of practice to get in again.

    Should I grab this with the Octo Expansion or without? It's on sale again and I think I will jump on it this time.

    The Octo Expansion is a series of trials until you get to the end and can be frustrating, but is well worth getting.

    If anyone is wanting to get back into this, give me a shout. I'll be up for an appearance. I've recently got back into it myself.

    @DangerousDave_87 That was an 8 game losing streak for me. I'm so horribly out of practice.

    @Thingy That Bigwill player isn't really playing. They've been on the losing team every round they've played. Sometimes scoring as little as 200p...

    These are insanely tough games. I'm dropping like a fly. If you don't get the jump in somebody, it's over.

    @Thingy Cheers for the games. I forget how intense this game can be! I'm not going to sleep any time soon...
