@NaviAndMii Welcome to the Squid Squad. We hope you enjoy your spray!

I'm usually jealous of people just starting out in a series I've been a fan of for a while (the thought of discovering it all the the first time is really attractive) but I've had so much fun digging into all the new little details of this sequel that I'm glad I've come in with a little experience.

I hope it's not too intimidating! As @Zyrac has said, Hero Mode (and also Salmon Run), force you to try out different weapons, and Hero Mode in particular does a really good job of showcasing their strengths and weaknesses. It's a good place to return to if multiplayer gets a bit too stressful. That said, Turf War is reasonably forgiving, as you can generally feel you're doing something at all times. My favourite modes are definitely in Ranked, but they can be more demanding as they're much more directed, so it's clearer when you've failed to achieve what you wanted (and rank meters are kinda stressful in themselves).

Anyway, if you have any questions, do ask! I think there are quite a few well established squidheads around here who'll be happy to help.

So I did pretty well back there... At least I think this score is rather high? Maybe someone can show me an even better result? (For the record I'm Naim_NL, recently I changed back my username) Picture or it didn't happen

@Sir_Anthony We were talking about your name Naim_NL a couple pages ago; We weren't sure if you were an NL imposter or not, lol.

@Maxz @Zyrac Thanks very much!

It's not all that bad really - I was just quite surprised how the game seemed to be easing me in gently at the start then, after reaching level 4, Sheldon hit me with reams and reams of text! I was just like....WHOA! Haha! (..adding the 'hurry up!' button just for him is pretty funny though! )

I've kinda just been using Turf War as my training ground so far - settling on a weapon at a time & trying to balance my outfit accordingly - learning on the fly!

Thanks for the tip about Hero Mode! (..and Salmon Run!) - sounds like a good way to expand my repertoire ..probably a good way to learn a little bit about what other players are using too & learning first-hand what their strengths and weaknesses could be!

...got a huge smile on my face after my initial dabbling's though - money well spent!

Played Tower Control for an hour and noticed that someone named "Ayhan (NL)" was in the opposing team two times. Someone from here? I know some of you added NL to your names.

@Late I got a friend request from "Niam NL," not sure who that is either. Either some people from here, or someone is starting their own clan using our name!

Haha, actually there are two reasons I have NL added to my name. 1. I'm from the Netherlands 2. NintendoLife is one of my favourite news sites (obviously).

I miss the old specials, I keep wishing for Kraken and Inkstrike in particular.

@jump Kraken needed to go as even nerfed it was still overpowered. I do miss inkstrike but the inkstorm is a pretty good substatue.

I am glad to see the back of the Kraken,that thing got me all the time.I do miss the Inkstrike though.

I need to experimenter more,I've barely used anything other than my Splattershot outside of Salmon Run.I don't know why actually as I'm not even having much success with the Inkjet,I think I get splatted more than I splat.

So, is there any way to post a sign without signing up for Twitter or Facebook? Really bummed that it doesn't seem to be possible, but I'm not signing up for more social media just so I can have a little sig in Splatoon.

@JasmineDragon I use Facebook for networking, but I basically have my Twitter account for situations like this. That and contest entries. I recommend it if you don't plan on using Twitter for anything else. I just dump images and sponsored messages on it, and I don't share my Twitter page with anyone so that one suffers.

@OorWullie The best way to use the inkjet is to keep a healthy distance (as tempting as it may be to approach for better accuracy, it leaves you vulnerable) and activate from a safe, preferably high location. And if you're being targeted by a charger, you can still dive and hide in your ink while the jet is active.

Alone, a force. Together, a force of nature.

@Nicolai I guess I might do that. Didn't really want to, but you know I want to be one of the cool squids.

Weird, Splatnet2 says my Rainmaker rank is different from how it appears in the game.

This is very sage advice. Just create a Twitter account as if it were a Miiverse account. You can also create multiple accounts if you want to keep different parts of your online life separate, and most Twitter apps allow you to link them up so you can switch between then without logging in and out. I kinda resent being forced to link my nerd life with my... err, 'wider online presence', but at least Twitter lets you create a dedicated account.

@meleebrawler also one thing I learned from a friend was that you can also press b to get a little boost in height which can be useful for dodging or getting onto a higher platform.

So, looks like my first Splatfest (well, except for the pre-release demo) is gonna be Flight vs. Invisibility! (..tough choice - leaning towards flight myself! )

https://twitter.com/NintendoEurope/status/898182668751450112

I'm new to the game - what's the deal with these Splatfest's? ..are there special rewards or incentives to take part? ..or is it all just a bit of fun?
